About the Homestay
Thank you for visiting my listing. 1 Night stays Welcome. Sans Souci means 'Without Worry' or "Carefree" which describes this lovely suburb surrounded by water on 3 sides. 6K from International airport . (NOT on flightpath), 13K South of city centre, bus for train to city 1 block away, takes about 50mins.
Plenty FREE street parking. Double check location re city on Homestay map before booking to check OK location for you. Soccer season has started & some noise Saturday 8 a.m from park opposite with kids playing soccer, DO NOT book if this would bother you or..... bring earbuds.
Living here feels like being on holiday all the time as we look out to the water. I offer drive around area on arrival to show bus stops etc.
Miles of clean beaches to walk or swim on Botany Bay where Captain Cook landed in 1770, has gentle waves, not severe surf or commercialism of Bondi but if you want surf there is North Cronulla Beach which is the Bondi of the south, a much better beach or you can get a direct train to Bondi Junction (45mins) to see Bondi Beach.
I welcome older visitors as well as younger.

N.B: ID such as Passport required on arrival
N.B. For Bookings 1st Dec 2018 to 31st Jan. 2019 inclusive -- 50% non-refundable deposit required to confirm booking by bank transfer to the host after confirmation of successful booking by Homestay.com. No booking is definite with me unless a deposit as specified is received.
All other dates require a 25% non-refundable deposit to host on successful confirmation of booking. Deposits regrettably necessary due to the number of very short - notice cancellations at peak periods when well-reviewed accommodation has been reserved a long time in advance and then can't be re-let at such short notice. I don't do this to 'make' money, I only do enough nights per year to replace what the Government reduced from my part--pension on their change of rules after I retired.
Nonetheless, you will still find that I am an enthusiastic host who will encourage & show you all the things that Sydney has to offer, especially for those on a low budget as I know Sydney well & how to minimise costs as have done with my family when travelling. There are no extra fees when staying with me right down to a glass of wine or doing your laundry.
Treat neighbours with consideration of no loud noise after 9 p.m.
Smoking allowed at back door area and patios
Pool use 9.a.m. to 7p.m.
If ladies wear stiletto shoes please be kind enough to take off before walking on wooden floor of room.
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
Our welcome to Syndey was made perfect by Lyn and her Homestay. Nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast was amazing. Lyn went above and beyond advising us where to go during our stay. The bed was comfy and the location brilliant- easy to get into the centre of Sydney. We didn't use the pool but on a hot day it would be perfect. Lyn really has thought of everything and I have no doubt if you wanted something that was missing (impossible!) it would be no trouble for her. The perfect host. Thank you so much Lyn. We hope to meet again.
Super Aufenthalt. Lyn ist auch super. Danke
Warn welcome and super friendly host.
I am just another guest at Lyns house that had the most amazing experience. There's nothing that's too much trouble for Lyn to make sure her guests are comfortable and looked after. Having only needed Accom for 1 night, I stumbled upon Lyns home while doing a search for places in the area I was playing a golf tournament. Firstly, I couldn't believe the cost and to my surprise her house was literally across the road from Beverley Park golf course, where I was to play. Lyn is an amazing host and her house is fantastic. If any one was needing Accom in Sydney they couldn't find better than at "Lyn's Place". I look forward to my next stay with her when I'm in town.
Lyn's place is not just a homestay, it's a 5 star experience. She's a traveller & puts herself in your position to ensure she provides all the home comforts a traveller could want. We had so much in common & laughed a lot. House is in a beautiful situation too & it's easy to get into Sydney on public transport. I'd heartily recommend her. Get booking.
It was an eye opener that how your stay can enhance your travel experience.It was more than pleasant experience to stay with Lyn.She is a great human being,very cooperative,very humble.While staying with Lyn you will never miss your family.
She will help you out of way to make your travel plan.I may plan another visit to sydney just to meet Lyn.
Lyn was a very kind and considerate hostess. The premises and facilities were immaculate and I can highly recommend the Homestay experience with Lyn to everybody.
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.
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!
My Homestay with Lynn has been the best most amazing place I could have wished to stay. What a beautiful kind funny lady who has welcomed me into her stunning home in such an amazing location. Easy access to bus and train to city and would recommend staying in this safe fab location a seconds walk to a bay with beautiful scenery. Check out the local pub great food and atmosphere there. Lynn showed me some sights I would not have known about forever greatful forever memories. Lynn you are the best and will miss you greatly until I stay with you again. Top homestay. Great Host. Not only an host but now my freind xx
