Hi Jacqueline, thank you for your review. However, your feedback regarding noise has been the complete opposite of the previous 99% of guests before you. No one has commented on the noise, including the family with a young child who stayed before you. Having said that most of our previous guests of varying age groups have come from international cities. Perhaps being from Canberra (quiet suburbia/ rural setting), you were expecting something similar and not used to what we call the city buzz. Elizabeth Bay is one of the most prestigious area in Sydney, and is known for being exclusive, quiet, secluded and private yet still walking distance to the city and local cafes. As you have said in the only communication you had with us, you were here with your girlfriend to escape the cold Canberra and have a good time in Sydney. It seemed like you did indeed was preparing for a party, as you have permanently left hair dye stain on our 3 month old vanity unit. I have reported this to Airbnb unfortunately.
