Smoking outside only please. I am pretty flexible about pets - I have a dog door to the garden for a small-medium dog/cat. Prefer them to stay off the furniture though. Just let me know when you book if you would like to bring a pet.
I'm a very seasoned traveller and love the idea of Air bnb, as both a guest and a host! I'm lucky enough to live in one of the most interesting, lively and fun areas in Sydney and am excited about sharing out my lovely, lovely house with travellers! I definitely appreciate a quiet and comfy place to stay when I'm travelling in amongst the hustle and bustle of city life and I've tried to make my house as comfortable as possible, while keeping it trendy.
I've lived in a few different countries (France and Ireland as well as Australia) and although I am fairly settled in Sydney now, I do quite a bit of travelling every year. I'm starting to feel a little bit too old for the noisy youth hostel scene and more keen for a quiet comfy bed to sleep in. I still love meeting new people though and hotels are boring and expensive, so air bnb seems a good compromise!
