Caryn was the perfect hostess, with her genuine hospitality and sunny personality making my stay an excellent experience. I thoroughly recommend her home for visitors of any age or nationality as it is so conveniently situated 10mins walk from Pymble station.
Best. Stay. Ever! I had such a good experience staying with Caryn for 4 months. She really made me feel home. Caryn has learned me new things, helped me where possible and even made me feel as part of the family during my stay. She is sooo loving, warm, friendly and caring. Couldn't have asked for a better stay. Thanks for everything!
This was not my first time to experience a homestay in my life however the stay with Caryn and her son was enjoyfull. I loved
my time and I learned a lot from her, she treated me like her son , she has a way in dealing with teenager kindly and respectfully. she is kind and caring Mother, if I am going to take a homestay a gain in Australia she will be the first one to choose.
Thank you a lot for everything you are wonderful.
Caryn made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed chatting with her. We had a nice room, comfy bed and hot shower. A quiet neighbourhood and a short walk to the train station for access to the city. Recommended.
Caryn is adorable and her home is amazing. We loved our bedroom, the bathroom and the swimming pool. The kitchen had everything we needed including a fridge just for us. The whole place is neat and
neighbourhood is also lovely. We had a great time.
My stay with Caryn was very warm, friendly and very much like being at home, thank you Caryn for your hospitality
Caryn is lovely ! She came to Pymple Station to grab us and all our bags! The house and the room were clean and confortable. Caryn is helpful and you can feel like in your own home in her House! Thank you so much for this stay, which was our first experience in homestay. Margaux and Yoann
