This was my first time in Sydney and I've got to say, I was pretty lucky to stay with this lovely family. The house itself was glamorous, but more important than that, was Julie and her family. They were quite nice, welcoming, warm and above all, supportive. I didn't feel like stranger or newcomer, they were like my own family and this, made the whole experience quite pleasant and memorable. I'm grateful to them and surely recommend them as one of the best hosts in Homestay.
Last but not least, I'd like to thank Homestay for helping me finding a remarkable place to stay in the begining of my journey here in Sydney. I'd appreciate it if you could post my review on Julie's page as well.
Very easy going fun family to stay with
Julie cooked a meal every night for me
Couldnt have asked for a better house, position and family to stay with
