Its a nice street and unless you don't love the sound of trains like I do, theres nothing wrong with the location. Plenty of room and lots of peace and space.

Unfortunately Joris was away but his daughter was pleasant and was looking after the place. Location very convenient - close to train station. Trains from the nearby line can be very loud at times. It is a very private unit at the back of the house so nice in this way. A few small things need fixing (bathroom fan, door lock fiddly) but overall a convenient and pleasant place

Stayed with Joris after 10 days of sport in Canberra so wanted somewhere quiet but where we could get around Sydney. The garden flat turned out to be agreat choice. We were a little later than agreed arriving as had not factored in Sydney traffic but found Joris had everything organised, with basics in the flat, two sets of keys and a nice little map of the area for us to locate ourselves the next day. As three older men we were pretty independent. The train service, even with track upgrades when we were there, was easy to use for both central sydney and the airport, which was two changes but only half an hour travel time. There was access to wi fi and a well set up kitchen so I was able to get some work done when there. The flat is very peaceful and Joris has a garden heavy on plants and examples of his work, which is really nice. The house does back on to the railway lines and on the first night we were very conscious of the trains but on the second and third nights barely noticed them. It is also on a flight path so there was some plane noise. The shower was good but the bathroom is tight enough and the sink could be a bit of a challenge. The main bed is very hard but I slept really well. Overall great value and a really pleasant stay.

We had a very comfortable stay at Joris' place - the rooms were clean and tidy and we appreciated the small, welcoming touches. Location was great, very close to a couple of train stations, buses and the light rail. Of course, being so close to trains there was a bit of noise but that didn't detract from a lovely stay. Thanks Joris!

Joris is an excellent host, and we love the space. My son and I could not have asked for more. Having a fridge and functional kitchen along with 2 separate sleeping spaces was exactly what we needed for our fairly lengthy stay of 2 weeks. There's a cafe nearby, and the local railway station is literally just a few minutes walk down a lovely leafy street. Fabulous.

Had a great stay with Joris and Margaret. They provided lovely fresh fruit on arrival and the kitchenette was well equiped for us to make our own meals. The studio was spacious and had its own side entrance which was great so we didn't have to bother the owners. Even though we only met them once, they seemed like lovely people. The only thing was that although the house was convenienty located, it was close to a train line so at night every now and then we could hear a train passing.
