“We had a fantastic time in Carol & Rob's home in Fairlight. The location just up the hill from Manly was superb and allowed us to explore Sydney - we travelled in and out on the ferry, as well as Manly and the surrounding beaches. If we could have changed one thing, it would have been to stay longer! Rob & Carol made sure that we had everything we needed including detailed suggestions and guidance for activities in and around Sydney. The apartment has amazing views and is really comfortable with everything we needed provided. ”
Rob & Carol's reviewsAs a host (4)
“Rob and Carol were incredible hosts, thoughtfully leaving travel guides and tips and greeting us with care and generosity. They have set up everything in their home to accommodate visitors, including comfortable lounge chairs on the terrace and books galore for lazy days. Their apartment in Manly is beautiful; we could see both the Sydney Harbour and the Tasman Sea, and we loved watching the ferries as we ate breakfast and dinner. We walked to the Spit, crossed Manly on foot, and found it easy to navigate Sydney on public transportation (thanks again to tips from Rob and Carol!). Shopping is accessible, and there are even free shuttles. We've kept up our acquaintance with the Richmonds, who have even taken us on tours when we were doing another house exchange. We feel very fortunate to have been able to stay in their home and to get to know them. They are the finest of hosts!”
“Our home exchange with Rob and Carol could not have been more perfect. Their lovely home had everything we could wish for and nothing was too much trouble for them, Rob and Carol were always very quick to answer any questions we had. The location was superb. Beautiful coastal walks, a lovely beach and the best eating places and coffee shops all within walking distance. Ferries to the city and much more. Thank you Rob and Carol for making our trip so perfect for us, Julia and Carl Schultz”
“In May, 2016, three of my friends and I enjoyed a house exchange with Rob and Carol. From the moment we were welcomed into their spacious 6th floor apartment overlooking Sydney Harbour and out to the Heads, we were entranced. From the bedrooms and living spaces, including a great deck, we gazed at the comings and goings of the Manly ferries, yachts, ships and small craft. Commuting via ferries and buses in to central Sydney was easy and there was also an easy walk or a short bus ride to the Manly beaches, restaurants and shops. Rob and Carol are friendly and efficient and were a great couple to exchange with. They left our exchange homes sparkling. Thanks, Rob and Carol, we recommend your home highly for overseas travellers (and Tasmanians on a Sydney fix) and hope to return! Madeleine Jane Naqvi”
