About the Homestay
My name is Tony and I live in a 2BR renovated house located on the border of Leichhardt and Annandale in Sydney's inner west. My spare room is well-sized and it contains a queen ensemble bed and a 2.5-seater sofa, however the sofa bed can be moved elsewhere if more space is required.
The house has just been repainted and fitted with new carpets and roller blinds, and the floorboards sanded and polished. There are plenty of common areas including a separate lounge room, a large separate dining room and a tranquil back garden with a deck. The kitchen has a large Ilve oven, dishwasher, fridge, microwave and plenty of storage. The bathroom has a shower, separate bathtub and a laundry nook with a washing machine.
I'm looking for someone who is clean, tidy and responsible, and who leads a relatively quiet lifestyle. I'm a 47-year-old male who works in the creative industries and I have a 13-month-old male seal-point Ragdoll cat called Marcello. He's very friendly.
In terms of transport, it's a three-minute walk to Booth Street for buses, a 10-minute walk to Parramatta Road for more buses, and a 10-minute walk to the Light Rail (Lilyfield station). There is plenty of on-street parking available out front.
This is a great area, perfect for those who enjoy the cafes, bookshops, cinemas and restaurants of the inner west. It's also reasonably close to Iron Cove, which has a cycling and walking/running track.

How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.
When can I share my contact details?
Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
