About the Area
Our home is located about 40 minutes from the city centre, in a leafy affluent suburb on the North Shore. 12 minute walk to trendy cafes and the train station. The walk can take you the CBD by train, or the local trendy suburb where restaurants, coffee shops and groceries are eagerly waiting to be trialled. 25 minute walk and you'r at a major shopping centre which boasts bars , clubs and fashion shops.
Should you rather use public transport, a bus-stop almost opposite the house will take you five minutes to the centre.
The bus stop on the house side number 575, and a 40 minute ride, will take you to a larger shopping centre newly refurbished and extended multi additional shops inclusive of British and Aussie designer. The city centre is an easy 40 minute ride in, from the train station, passing the Iconic Opera house and going over the magical Harbour bridge towards the end of you'r journey.
The suburb also lends itself to cool evening walks around the walker friendly leafy streets to marvel at well structures homes. The local park alongside the train station is an attractive feature; its manicured lawns, complex gardens and structures welcoming family and young people; occasionally hosting wine and food stalls.

Beautiful home and accomodation I loved it
They were the most amazing couple, with nothing being too much trouble. The trip for us was a stressful one but with John and Ingrid we felt relaxed and were able to really cope well with everything and they were constantly in contact with us before arriving so we were aware of any changes and to check things with us regarding meals. Thanks isn't even enough for the amount of support we received!
Ingrid and John were amazing hosts and went above and beyond to make my stay very pleasant. The room was extremely neat and clean as was the rest of the house. Thanks very much for a lovely stay! Cari
