About the Homestay
Located in Leichhardt Sydney and within 100m of public transport to University of Sydney and CBD which are 10 minutes by bus. Leichhardt has been renown as being the 'Italian' sector though within the last 10 years has become multicultural with a great variety of restaurants and cafes. Check in time is 1000 hours and check out 1200 unless otherwise agreed. There is a minimum of three nights accommodation and maximum 21 days. As the accommodation is inner west and very central to transport there are the usual neighbourly sounds, birds and, yes aircraft, and will share a terrific travelling tip learnt from one of my guests. She always used ear plugs on her first few nights in a new abode as, she explained, it assisted her in settling in!
There is a laundromat which is 5 minutes away for $20 wash and dry (depending on the size of load).

Nice clean room, with ensuite toilet and great hot shower, with a friendly helpful host (Christine). She offers you milk, hot water and some fruits even though it's not included in the deal. I would repeat in future.
Great host! The house is super clean
Loved staying at Christine's place. It's clean, tidy and just few minutes away from the city centre. Thanks for your lovely hospitality.
It was a wonderful stay. This was my first visit to Sydney. Christine is such a lovely person, she readily agreed to do early check-in. Once I checked-in, she took me around her home and neighborhood to make me familiar about surroundings. That was very nice gesture, I really thank her for that. The room was well laid out and it was quite comfortable. Entire two weeks, I felt at home here. This was my beginning in Sydney, and I will cherish the time I spent here.
The three days that I stayed with Christine's were amazing. Just the idea that she would share her lovely home with a stranger. Her kindness and thoughtfulness. Christine was helpful in providing visitor information. The home and room are immaculate and tastefully decorated, such a pleasant atmosphere for a visitor. Her home is situated very close to restaurants and is located only a short distance from bus transportation which is quick and close to the central city. For a single person, this is the perfect place to stay when visiting Sydney and area.
