About the Homestay
I live in a villa (small complex of 6) in Sylvania, in the Sutherland Shire of Sydney. The villa has a lovely sunny courtyard and small back garden with plenty of native birds.
The street is quite yet is just off the main road for buses to Miranda Station (10 mins) and Hurstville station (20 mins) that has direct frequent services to the centre of Sydney (Illawarra Line) also buses to Cronulla Beach.
I am a retired dance teacher living by myself with one cat but sometimes mind my daughter's cat and neighbour's dog when they travel. I'm a very laid back person who likes meeting people from other countries and welcome you into my home

Beautiful friendly lady with awesome hospitality!! If I come back to Sydney I will be sure to try and book a room with Elaine again.
A beautifully and immaculately kept home with everything you need for a comfortable stay, as well as feeling safe. Elaine was very welcoming and great to talk to. The bus stop is very close to connect with trains to anywhere! Highly recommend and would stay again!
Elaine is a wonderful lady!! It will be like a grandmother for you. I was greeted very well for 2 months. She gives a lot of advice. The house is very comfortable, clean and functional. Best homestay !
Elaine was very welcoming and friendly. I felt relaxed and comfortable during my homestay in her lovely villa in a nice quiet area.
It was such a lovely home. Everything was provided, from different sized towels to an opal card, to warm blankets.
Absolutely loved it and would definitely recommend! Plus Elaine was such a wonderful host :) thank you for the wonderful welcome to Sydney.
Elaine ist eine wunderbare Gastgeberin.Kann sie nur weiterempfehlen.
I had such a great experience with Elaine! Her home was lovely and I had access to everything and it was so nice to have a comfy bed and private bathroom. I especially enjoyed talking with Elaine and getting some great advice from her and her daughter on must-see places. Would absolutely stay again.
I stayed with Elaine recently and may I say I loved the experience. Very homely, safe, friendly and just felt like I am at home away from home. Thanks Elaine for your kindness and beautiful nature. Loved the cat too.... he is such a beautiful soul...
For anyone that wants a private, safe and enjoyable stay ..this is the place.
Thanks for making me feel at home Elaine...
Wonderful host, kind and friendly. The home was very clean, comfortable and quiet. Very pleasant stay.
