About the Homestay
We are looking for a mature person staying more than 3 months to save the cost staying.
Our house is located close to Randwick cinema. Randwick Hospital (5min) walking distance to Coogee beach and university of NSW(20-30min) and having bus stops directly to city centre, Maroubra and bondi junction. We are at the border of Randwick, Coogee and south Coogee. We love music, piano, singing at the church as well as walking along the oceans. Most time I am at home and happy to go for a walk with you along sea side and to help people to find the new setting place. It is also possible to drive around and to provide the meals with the extra cost.
The room is located in the studio where I used to work.
This has little inconvenient to walk to the main house for the bathroom and kitchen but the studio has its own entrance with little fridge and microwave itself.

Josephine is one of those rare genuinely kind-hearted ladies with a PhD and braincells that are underutilized her daughter would say, and I agree. This family is just the best, be prepared though that going to the bathroom at night is rather a challenge but do not let that bother you too much as Josephine and family are well worth it, go with the flow....
How do I book?
Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.
