    The stay at Christine and Vladan's place was absolutely lovely! Both of them are super sweet and helpful, always willing to provide lots of travel tips. The room is very cozy and offers everything a young person needs. It includes proper cooking equipment and a private bathroom, essentially making it a complete, tiny flat—which I appreciated a lot. The great thing about this apartment is that it offers plenty of privacy while still allowing for interaction with locals, which is very valuable. Balmain is beautiful, an ideal location for running with amazing views, and also a suburb with lots of cozy restaurants.

    I had the best time at Christine’s place. Balmain is such a lovely suburb, full of cafes, restaurants, tiny shops and locals. The room is very cosy, it has all the necessary things, from the kitchen to the toilet. Christine is very kind and generous and makes you feel welcomed from the very first second you meet her. I couldn’t have wished for a better host and stay, so I highly recommend her place

    Christine and Vladan are absolutely lovely and easy-going people! I had a great stay there and I am sure you'll find all the comfort you need in this studio. Buses going to the city or central station nearby and the ferry is also very close. The only drawback is that you have to wash your dishes in the bathroom sink as you don't have a real kitchen. But trust me, you get used to it quite fast.

    My homestay could not have been better! The room was very clean, beautiful and equipped with a well working heating system, which is very rare in Australian houses. You will very much appreciate that, especially in winter. Christine is a very friendly and lovely person, who explains everything very well, gives good advice for Sydney and has a really lovely family. I felt the entire time very welcomed. To sum up, it was a really great experience. I would definitely stay at her house again and I truly recommend everyone staying at her house!

    I had a wonderful stay! Christine and her family were so kind and helpful. I really felt at home. The room itself was great, too. All really new and an own bathroom which is really nice. The house is close to the city, either by bus or ferry which was awesome too! Would definitely come back :)

    Christine and her familly are really nice and friendly.
    The room is great with a individual bathroom. The place is close to buses, ferrys and so on.
    I really had a good time there and felt sad when I had to leave.
    I highly recommended this place if you want to stay in sydney for few months and if you prefer to live outside the CBD but close to it.
