This is one of Balmain's original houses (still standing) - circa 1880. An oasis, a short walk to cafes, restaurants, wine bars, bars/pubs and harbour foreshore. Only 2 bus stops from Sydney Town Hall and CBD. Sympathetically restored & refurbished, gourmet dine-in kitchen, large oval bath, al fresco dining on deck overlooking a large L shaped garden.
Balmain is a peninsula surrounded on 3 sides by Sydney Harbour - an eclectic mix of village life and the best pubs, cafes and restaurants!

The space

You will not believe that you are so close to the city, the solid sandstone frontage and brick internal walls - makes this house so so quiet!
If you need private transport, there is a Go Get car parked regularly on the street outside.
Walk to buses and ferries to the city. There are lovely parks and the harbour foreshore within minutes walk
OR simply enjoy our sunny gardens and alfresco dining deck & trampoline.
We have a stocked pantry which is yours to explore. Enjoy unlimited data, Netflix and Stan.

Caryn was a great host! Myself and two others drove our food truck up from Melbourne and worked at a festival over the weekend near Caryn's house. She was really helpful and gave us loads of handy information about the house and the neighborhood. She also made us some delicious borscht and left bread, eggs etc for us which was really thoughtful as we were working long hours. Lovely clean, comfortable beds and a beautiful property - i could've lived in the bathroom! Thank you so much for having us Caryn, we'll be back next year!

This was our first experience using Airbnb and what a fantastic experience it was! At first it felt a little strange walking into someone else's home, but Caryn took great care to ensure that we felt right at home straight away. From the personalised letter waiting on the bench offering tips and local knowledge; to the lovely range of quality foods and products that made our stay so enjoyable, we couldn't fault it. Caryn made it clear she was accessible for any questions and was incredibly warm, hospitable and helpful in all our dealings with her. The house and the neighbourhood themselves were warm (and cool), comfortable, friendly and we felt safe aand welcome at all times. It was a wonderful place to take our puppies as the yard catered for them perfectly and the neighbourhood is very dog friendly with water bowls at almost every shop in the street! We would highly recommend this place as it is beautiful, cosy, historic-with-modern-conveniences, friendly, welcoming, full of character, pet friendly and well managed by the most hospitable hosts ever!

We stayed 4 nights at Caryn's house. The house was very nice with a nice garden and a lot of space. We felt Caryn's generosity through every little attention: lots of space in the pantries, plenty of towels, access to almost any part of the house. The area is well located, buses to CBD and some nice coffee shops and restaurants in Balmain (Darling street).

I am a self employed, director of the events company CMA Events. I love my job (it is hard at times to call it that!), I love my gorgeous boys - husband Barry & boy, Brodie; I love our house - which is an oasis from life in fast-paced Sydney.
You will love this space also - so relaxing and calming.
