About the Homestay
I have been doing home stay for a while, I have host students, couples, professional and people from all over the world - John and I love to learn about the culture of different countries, We help everyone in any way we can with directions - showing the shopping centres, restaurants or what ever any guests want to know, we become family - at times I cook for everyone and my food is very delicious.
I have lots of reference letters from students saying how much they loved living with me. I love life, I love cooking, entertaining. My house is clean, big and very friendly.
I have 7 rooms in the house, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens and a very nice outdoor area with barbecue facility - pool table and outside gym - and we all treat each other like family. I go out of my way to help everyone. Please note if there is 2 people staying the price goes up - to cover the expenses of the facility used. Two people price goes up

I would like for my guest when not using their computer or any electrical equipment's to Switch everything off - as this can course electrical fault and fire if there is storm -
I appreciate no to much noise after 10.30-11.00pm at night especially during the week as other people may be at sleep and get up early in the morning for work or school. I appreciate no cooking after 8.30pm as the smell of the food travels all over the house and its not fair for others to smell the food while they want relax or sleep.
Be clean and look after yourself -
Please note I require a deposit paid to me in advance of the booking to hold your room on top of the 15% deposit paid to homestay.com ( my pay Pal account details- which you will receive after booking)
any cancellation have to be done within seven days, notice any cancellation later than this will not be refunded. There will be a deposit bond fee if you want use the kitchen to cook meals this security bond will be given back to you when you leave the house providing the premises has been left the same way and no damages has been done. ( The reason for this as I have had other guests staying and have damage some of the equipment's and I needed to replace in my cost.
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
Not what I had in mind. Too restrictive with too many rules and posted in detail in every room. No t.v and not allowed to make the faintest of noise for fear of waking someone at 7.p.m. MY house, MY rules and don't forget it. I'll forget it.
Tina is a lovely host. She's very caring and welcoming. Although it was only a short stay, it was a great one and we'd definitely book again. Lovely house, lovely people A+! Thanks Tina and John :)
Tina and John are an amazing host, they have been really humble down to earth and willing to help. Always making sure you are comfortable, even if its for short time. I would strongly recommend them for Homestay .. looking forward to stay with them if in Sydney in the future
Tina and John were exceptional hosts. Nothing was too much trouble, were very hospitable and exceptionally friendly people. Tina runs a very clean home and asks her guests to keep up the standard. John's orientation on the first day was of great assistance and helped the settling in process and led to trouble free use of the bus and trains which followed. Outside of cooking for others in the house, I was always asked whether I would like to eat, which was not included in my tariff. I really enjoyed my 7 night stay at Tina's happy home and would not hesitate staying again should the opportunity arise. Best wishes, Peter
Tina & John are great, Very hospitable and friendly. Room is nice, clean and comfortable.
I would normally stay in hotels, however a friend suggested that I try Homestay! Wow! What an experience. Tina went over and above the service offered. What an absolutely delightful experience!! I was made to feel at home immediately upon arrival. The room was clean, crisp clean sheets, amenities were in excellent order. The hospitality offered was really amazing, I felt very welcomed and relaxed. I highly recommend this homestay, and will not hesitate to stay with Tina when I return to Sydney. Truly wonderful experience.! Thank you Tina.
It was a pleasure meeting my hosts Tina & John
The home is kept with pride and with a welcome that any guest will be thankful for.

Hi All, I had a 9 day stay at Tina's house. It had been my first time staying through something like this, but Tina & John made it a very welcoming stay. I could come & go as I pleased, as long as I was quiet if coming in after 10pm. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them. Not having been in Sydney for 30+ years, they were very forth coming with things to do & see & giving directions on how to get there. The house is in a quiet street & had lots of room for a car, with easy access to the main roads. The public transport is close by too. Other people in the house were friendly & we all got along quite well. Tina is always making sure that everyone is happy with their accomodation & enjoying themselves. She even invites her guests to join her & John when they go out to their local club, to enjoy a good meal & listen to music & dance the night away. (They love to dance) I will happily to stay there again & have no qualms in recommending her to anyone else. Thank you Tina & John.
