Shelley is a fantastic helpful host!
Accomodation is nice and comfortable and has everything that you need from cooking utensils to a washing machine.
The house is about 40 minutes out of Sydney on the train and is in a quiet leafy area. There is a small shopping centre nearby with a Woolworths for everything you need.
Shelley was very nice. I was happy talking with her. I hope seeing her again.
Her house is nice and comfortable.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
I lived a couple of months at Shelley's home. It was a great time, very uncomplicated and relaxed. Everytime it was very quiet and nobody at home. I could use the kitchen everyday. Shelley was very nice and so friendly to me. If I had a problem I could ask her and she helped me. During this time it was my home and I really enjoyed this time! Thank you very much Shelley!
Shelley is fantastic and she really care about the guest. She shared her computer, battery recharcher, umbrella and sometimes she gave me lots of advice about where to go, where to eat. In fact she is not only a homestay but also a good company fot those who are looking for good place to staty in Sydney.
