We live in a lovely quiet residential neighbourhood filled with grand old houses, tree-lines streets and close to lovely walking trails around Balls Head national parkland. There is a local pub across the road and shops, supermarkets, restaurants and the bus and train station are all just a few minutes away.

A taxi from the airport will take 15-30 minutes depending on traffic.

I had a great, quiet stay at Karin's. The room was large and very tidy and clean. Very close to the bus line into North Sydney and Sydney.

Karin and Hiroshi were very welcoming and always keen for a chat. The room itself is as described and was a perfect base for me to get started in Sydney. Really good connections to the city and generally nice quiet neighbourhood, close to restaurants in North Sydney and Crows Nest

Excellent location, beautiful old house, room was clean & ideal for one person. Bed was a little small for me (I'm 6'1"), and the duvet cover was a size too big for the inner of the duvet, but still fine. Location & cleanliness were probably the best aspects. Thanks for having me, Karin.

Great location. Close to trains. Beautiful neighbourhood and home and Karin and her spouse were so helpful. Provided a ride to and from train station. Train station was only a 7 minute walk but with luggage it was so appreciated. Would definitely recommend.

Very nice, perfectly comfortable room. Respectful hosts and only a short walk to either crow's nest or north sydney. Even walking into the CBD is only about 25 mins.
