A Little About Us:

We both work in corporate in the CBD and enjoy good food and watching + participating in various sports. If you have questions about any sporting events, dining destinations, etc, we are more than happy to help if we can. We are both fairly well travelled (internationally and throughout Australia) and are more than happy to either point you in the right direction or help with your travel plans.

If you are a foodie, a climber, hiker or adventurer, a museum goer, a fighter, a photographer, a random sightsee’er, or just in town for business, we look forward to accommodating you.

Getting to us and getting around:

Airport - The international and Domestic airports are only 10 minutes drive away (traffic dependant). If we are available, we are happy to drop off or pick up from the airport - FREE.

Easy bus and train options, and taxis can easily be flagged out the front of the house or even more easily just up the road at the intersection. Bus to Bondi just across the road.

Full location details and directions will be provided upon securing your booking confirmation.


ALEXANDRIA– a growing vibrant hub, fast becoming a popular foodie destination - a few more facts:


Close to Eveleigh Farmers' markets and Artisan Markets (monthly) at Carriageworks (which also houses television studio for shows such as Masterchef and So you think you can dance).


Factory outlet central!

We are amidst a large bulk of factory outlets, heaven for the shopper! (however, if you need to avoid shopping temptations, we can point out routes to where you are going that will avoid these!).


Parks

Care for a run? Or go on a picnic? (You are most welcome to borrow a rug and picnic gear from us!) Head to either of the two parks below, your own Sydney tourist spot, or just cross the road to the park next door!

Other things to note

We recently took a break from hosting due to our family dog's ailing health. To guests who have stayed with us before, we are sorry to say that we lost her towards the end of June, 2015. We currently don't have a dog in the house, however we hope to foster and/or adopt in the near future when the right dog comes into our life.
**Update - From mid-end March 2016, we will have Archie the Boxer with us - he is a stately gentleman, 9 years young and very friendly. Feel free to ask any questions about him or ask for a photo.
In our experience, we are in a great location for both tourists and for those visiting on business. Those who have benefit the most from staying with us include expats moving to Sydney for work. We have a few living within close proximity, and even catch up with them occasionally at a local pub or play in a team together! We can definitely offer lots of tips for quickly finding work and accommodation for those staying with us.

. We'd ask that you'd please not smoke inside the house. Your own balcony is sheltered with your own access, ash tray is provided for your use.

. We occasionally work from home. Although you are free to come and go at times throughout the day as you please, this means that our home would be better suited to guests wanting to be out sightseeing during the day, rather than spending the days inside - we prefer if you are out seeing our wonderful city than staying at home! If a party or a night on the town is what you're after, we are happy to point you in the right direction rather than host it at ours.

. Recreational drug use will not be tolerated under any circumstances.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Geri and Chris'. The room was exactly as described/pictured and having an en suite was very convenient. Communication with Geri was great, she ensured we could check in easily while she was at work and at all times was just a message away if not around the house. The location is perfect with a train station a 5 min walk away which takes you wherever you want to go in Sydney! And there is also a park directly outside the house perfect to spend an afternoon in if don't fancy heading into the city. Would definitely recommend and if ever return to Sydney would stay here again!

Geri and Chris are wonderful hosts and make you feel at home immediately. I arrived from England after a series of flights lasting 23 hours. They made sure I had something available to eat and make drinks even organising English tea for me! Their home is 20min drive from the airport and close to the train station for access to downtown Sydney. It's an excellent location to base your travels from, both Geri & Chris had loads of tips and suggestions for the best place to eat, sights to see and how to get about in Sydney. They lent me a opal card to use on trains & buses, from leaving their home you can be at Circular Quay station in 20 minutes with its brilliant view over Sydney harbour. If you want to meet local's this is the place to stay.

We didn't see a lot of them as we were always out exploring the city! There was so much to see, our favourite was Darling Harbour, though we loved Chinatown, CBD, The Rocks, The Opera House, and it was Chinese New Year! (Lots of Fireworks) Geri And Chris made us feel very welcome in their home and we had a key so we could come and go as we pleased, which suited us fine. The house is pretty close to redfern station, from which you can get just about anywhere in the city within minutes. There is a nice coffee shop next door for morning lattes and a supermarket close by, though we didn't use it as we were always out! Thanks to Geri and Chris for giving us a good base to explore from.

Geri and Chris are really good hosts as they are very friendly and relaxed. They have an extensive knowledge of Sydney and they have provided their guests with comprehensive information, for their stay. Geri took me to see some interesting parts of the city, by car. We also met up at a local cafe for a coffee and a chat, which was really pleasant. The apartment is very conveniently situated, in a bustling part of Sydney. It is within easy walking distance of Redfern railway station, where there is a frequent train service to both the city centre and popular tourist attractions. It is also on the main bus routes into the city.

I really enjoyed my stay with Geri & Chris. I found them both very friendly and welcoming, the room tidy, clean and a real bonus having en suite facilities. I would happily stay there again and recommend this accommodation to anyone wishing to visit and stay in Sydney. Jeff

Lovely stay at Geri & Chris' place. Quiet and private place! Geri and Chris were traveling on the day of my arrival but checking in was a breeze and Geri is always a phone call or text message away. Geri is helpful, friendly and very warm. Bobby, their cute puppy is lovely, well behaved and quiet through the night. I also appreciate how the room is well equipped with necessities. Traveling to the city was just a 20 mins bus ride away. And close to airport with just 10 mins walk + 5 mins train ride away. Cafes like Ground of Alexandria is just 15 mins walk away. Highly recommend if you'd like access to the city, enjoy the charm of the Alexandria and stay with a lovely Aussie couple. :) Thank you Geri & Chris for opening up your place! :)
