I have a sunny good size room in a 2-bedroom apartment available for ONE female homestay guest.

The room has a comfortable king single size bed, a big table and 2 chairs. The room also opens to a private balcony.

The apartment has a kitchen, bathroom (shower and bath), a big TV, Hair-dryer, Closet / Wardrobe, Desk and Lamp, Fridge, Air Conditioning, and Mirror. I love meeting guests from all corners of the world.

The neighborhood is in the inner city of Sydney, close to public transport (with many options to the city, UNSW, Sydney uni, bondi beach and coogee beach), new state of the art local library and many trendy cafes and boutique shops.

Karolyn is 35 and enjoys sports (mainly tennis), watching movies, reading, socialising, travel, learning foreign languages, television, fashion design, and theatre. She speaks English.

    The unit was good & my room fine. It is close a supermarket & transport to the city (by bus about 30 mins). The only probem was that I stayed in June & it was really cold with no heating.

    Karolyn is a very friendly host, the room is perfect to stay in while exploring Sydney! Public transport is right there, Alexandria/Rosebery/Botany itself is also worth a visit (Grounds of Alexandria, Rosebery Cannery)! Thanks a lot, Karolyn!

    Very good stay at Karolyn's place I felt immediately at ease! Karolyn is a very nice and nice young woman. Its apartment is very well located and close to any convenience: bus, train and airport. Only small problem: the room rented overlooks a busy street and over a garage. I got used to it and that did not prevent me from sleeping! Very nice experience during my stay at Karolyn!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?
