    Lyn did everything to make us feel at home. She has a lovely house, the pool is perfect, and, even though it is a little while out of the city, there is also lot's to do in that neighbourhood (+ the perfect beaches at Cronulla). She made sure nothing we wanted or needed was missing, her hospitality was boundless. She even took us on a tour to the Cook's Landing in Botany Bay, and at the end of our stay brought us back to the airport. The bed was a foldout, but still slept quite comfortably. The only slight nuisance was that she is a smoker, and sometimes smokes in the (ventilated) kitchen that is adjacent to the room we slept in.

    Glad you enjoyed your stay with the long days of sightseeing you managed to achieve. The listing clearly states 'smoking area' in the title & description as a guide for those who smoke and those who do not, and always re-iterated in reply to first contact from an enquirer as it was on this occasion.
    It was a pleasure to have you. Good luck for your new job. Lyn

    I had been been living with the host for nearly 2 weeks before Christmas. She was pretty friendly, easy-going, well-interested and considerate. She helped me with my English so much, and she also shared me her favorite recipes, sightseeing, operas, etc. So lovely! You will probably love her and her house!

    Thanks Melissa, I am glad you enjoyed your stay so much. It was a pleasure to have such a wonderful guest. Great that you enjoyed a lot of what Sydney offers plus the extra little tips of sightseeing that only the locals know about! I am sure we will catch up again for a wine and a few funny stories in the years to come.
