Our house is steps from Balmain's vibrant Darling Street, with the many cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs Balmain is famous for practically on our doorstep. One of the great benefits of Balmain is that it's really easy to get about - we are close to 2 ferry stops, the bus into town takes about 15 mins and there is parking close by (we have a parking permit for you). You’ll love our house; it's cosy, a bit quirky, well set up and is handy for all the great experiences Sydney has to offer.

Great location, very quick/easy access to heart of Balmain but still nice and quiet neighbourhood! Loved it :)

We loved staying at Jodie and James' property. Aesthetic, ambient and so comfortable!! Gorgeous interiors !! Furnishings and fittings are of high quality, with sumptuous bed linen and bath towels. Fabulous location adjacent to Balmain's Darling St shopping strip with the famous Bourke St Bakery just around the corner. Close by are frequent buses to the CBD taking just 10 minutes. Can't wait to stay at Jodie and James' again! Kate and John

We loved his place! If you want an awesome, cosy, gorgeous place that is super close to the city without being in the city, choose this!!

This quirky house is a two minute walk away from the bustle of Balmain, close to public transport and perfectly equipped for singles or couples. The bed was ridiculously comfortable and the downstairs living area with the open gas fire ideal for reading a book or late night conversations. Although not ideal for anyone who struggles with stairs, this is a great location and the hosts were very welcoming and generous with lovely little touches that made my stay even better.

I am a repeat guest at James and Jodie's Sorrie St cottage as it's such a nice place to stay and they make it so simple to coordinate. They also have also lovely touches like matching the linen & towels to the room decor, so you feel like you're in a luxe hotel. Balmain is also a charming suburb that is super easy to get into the city for work.

We came to Sydney as part of a 6 month trip in 2009; we were going to be here for 2 months before heading back to the UK via SE Asia. We are still here - we are having to work through the bits we missed more slowly!

We are lucky enough to live in 2 wonderful places - Balmain and Bundanoon. We bought the house in Balmain as a derelict and spent the next couple of years working by day and trying make it habitable the rest of the time - never again, we said! We are now at it again, and are most of the way though renovating our place in Bundanoon - which is where we spend our spare time, playing with our mini donkeys, Freddie and Mr Percival.

Having arrived in Sydney and Bundanoon as visitors, we have loads of tips for things to do and places to visit; we love eating out, drinking in good bars and finding fun and interesting things to do, so are happy to help with recommendations.
