I call the house rules "Common sense". You let somebody know when you come and go. If you are late or not home for dinner, call or send a message. Always ask if you are not sure of what to do.
Prices include Breakfast and cooked Dinner.
A $ 10.00 internet fee per week.
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
I really enjoyed the time in Ann's house. This is the first time to do a homestay for me, but I'm glad I could stay here.
She told me a lot of things so she is a best adviser for me than the other agent. When I have a chance to go Sydney next time, I want to meet to Ann.
Thank you for evrythings.
Annegret and Kon were like a family to me, had the best chit-chats with them, and they have the best coffee in Sydney! Was a lovely experience....
It is an excellent place to feel at home, they give you good advice for your trip and they help you with everyday problems such as keeping your clothes clean. Thank you so much for everything.
Annegret was very nice and helpful. The house is clean :) we had a great time!!
Naremburn lies to the north of Sydney. The house of Ann and Kon is on a quiet side street which still lies very centrally. One reaches the next bus stop from there one during minutes everywhere gets. If it is to Balmoral to the beach or properly way Circular Que where one needs no longer as 15 minutes. Also in Naremburn itself are different small shopping possibilities for the daily supply.
Price – performance stand in no relation to each other! I would be to be paid any time ready more! In the price included is the breakfast, dinner, every day is freshly cooked and tasty always really good, and wash laundry!!!!! The house is always clean! In addition, Kon and Ann have helped us where they only were able to do and to us the surroundings shown, to us shown where we a coach ticket agreed and still so a lot more.
There are different rules in the house to which everybody keeps. The together life of different personalities and nationality thereby becomes very easy and free from problems.
Ann and Kon have gone on this trip to something quite special one. In this house rules an affectionate and deferential atmosphere. We think back over and over again with pleasure to this great time and are to be had got to know very thankfully so great people.
Thank you Ann and Kon for everthing.

Anne and Kon are great host´s. I felt very welcome. If you ever had problems or needed any advice they always helped me. It was lovely to celebrate Christmas and NYE with them. Naremburn is very close to Sydney - about 10 Minutes to take the bus to the city - Perfekt!
I would definetly recommend them.
Best regards to Anne and Kon :)

I missed a hospitable atmosphere. Didn't feel treated as an adult. Had to wait one week before I was handed over a key. I do understand that rules a necessary, but how to enforce them is what counts.
Ich habe eine gastfreundliche Atmosphäre vermisst. Fühlte mich nicht als erwachsene Person behandelt. Mit wurde auf Anfrage erst nach einer Woche ein Schlüssel gegeben. Ich habe Verständnis dafür, dass Regeln notwendig sind, aber wie diese durchgesetzt werden, ist was zählt.
