About the Homestay

Suburban Spacious

Our family lives in a quiet, leafy suburb on a peninsular 9km from the centre of Sydney. Our home is a large 6 bedroom house with a pool and table tennis table. We have 3 children all in their 20's - Only the youngest still lives at home (Bridget). My husband (Stephen) usually works in New Zealand coming back to Sydney every few weeks. We often have other travellers staying so you can expect to meet some interesting people if you stay here.

We are originally from New Zealand but now love the climate and way of life in Australia, especially Sydney. The area where we live is very safe and is conveniently accessed by a bus service. The bus takes 30 mins to the city centre. There is a private ferry service with a limited timetable that serves our peninsular. The ferry wharf is an easy 10 min stroll away.

Our street is wide with little traffic. If you come by your own car parking is not a problem.
If you are arriving at the airport I can pick you up from the nearest train station (Wollstonecraft) for a nominal charge of $5 or I will pick you up from the airport ($40 for 1, $45 for 2, $50 for 3) during non peak hour. Sydney traffic can be terrible!

Additional Info

We just speak English at home but I lived in Mexico for one year so have reasonably good conversational Spanish.

    aug Hi everyone, recently my wife anne and myself stayed with frances homestay from the 24 aug till the 31. we enjoyed our stay there v.much. Frances is such a gracious host and made every effort to make our stay a pleasant one. Somedays we missed the bus and she picked us up from lane cove plaza several times. She even drove us back to the airport on the return journey. I would surely recommend her place for your stay in sydney. its only ten minutes drive away .

    My daughter and I stayed for 10 nights with Frances. A real highlight for us were the board games around the dining table after dinner with the other guests. We all made new friends! The location is in a very nice neighbourhood (and quiet too) and is really handy for the bus route into town making getting around easy. The downstairs ensuite bedroom is fab! Thanks Frances and Bridget for sharing your home. L&M

    Mrs. Frances was a very kind host. She provided us with a lot of support and detail instruction during our stay in Sydney. She made us feel like staying at home!
    Her house is in a quiet & lovely neighbourhood. Our room was very clean, cozy. We really enjoyed our stay here and felt lucky to have Frances as a host.
