Best Hosts ever, feels like home, Carol and Tom are really nice, we had several chats with them and they gave us really nice recommendations and helped us out with every problem, nice and clean house, beautiful bathroom and backyard, good breakfast we would definetley recommend this place. The only thing which is important to know is that Newton is near by the airport - so you will definetley hear some noise - but anyway it didnt disturbed us...

Carol and Tom are wonderful hosts. They immediately made us feel very welcomed. They are always available for helpful recommendations. The accommodations are quite comfortable with a spacious, bathroom close by. While it is a shared space, their living quarters are upstairs so it still feels "private". They have a lovely patio/garden that is very enjoyable. The property is close to the train station which made getting to Sydney and the Harbor Ferries very easy. They are also within walking distance to the main street in town with little eateries and wonderful espresso spots. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Carol and Tom and would highly recommend them!

Carol and Tom were wonderful hosts. The location was only a 5 minute walk to public transportation and only a 10-15 min drive from the airport. They always gave great suggestions about what to do while in Sydney and how to get around. The eastern beaches coastal walk was one of my favorite things and I wouldn't have known about it unless they told me. I enjoyed coming back at the end of the day to chat with them. And the best thing is that the money from my stay goes to a charity they run for school children.

As newcomers to Airbnb, the accommodation that Carol and Tom provided exceeded our expectations. Our hosts were welcoming, generous and helpful and the location was ideal for our needs. The bedroom afforded excellent storage facilities and the bed was comfortable. It was convenient to have a private bathroom and we enjoyed starting the day with a delicious breakfast in the courtyard garden. To be delivered by Tom to the airport at 5.30am on the day of our departure, was an unexpected bonus. We shall be back!

Carol and Tom were the BEST hosts and I cannot recommend them highly enough!! The house is incredibly clean and comfortable, we had everything we needed and more. The bed is really comfortable and we had lots of privacy being at the front of the house on the ground floor. Carol and Tom are the loveliest people who made us feel so at home and were incredibly generous and provided lots of different options for breakfast. They shared some of their bottles of wine with us and a few meals with the added joy of wonderful conversation and their company. The spa bath is so luxurious and provided a wonderful relaxing retreat. The location is ideal right near St Peters station which gets you into the city in about 7 mins. A quick walk to King Street where there is an unending amount of restaurants, bars and shops. And then a quick walk to Sydney park and from on top of the hill you get a gorgeous view over Sydney! SO glad we stayed here!!

We felt welcomed and at ease the moment we arrived at Carol and Tom's home. They were available for advice when needed but otherwise they respected our privacy as we did theirs. The advice about where to see NYE fireworks resulted in a fantastic evening at Sydney Opera House. The house was very clean and comfortable and the area lively with great transport links. We have no hesitation in recommending their generous hospitality and lovely home.

Tom and I love to travel and as we now have the opportunity, we plan to spend 3 months a year overseas.
We are regular visitors to Africa as we work with a locally run AIDS clinic in Uganda called Kawempe Home Care and the proceeds from our airbnb go towards paying the school fees for children who have been affected by AIDS.
We enjoy good food and good wine and we like guests to feel at home.
