About the Homestay
A modern brick house w/ 4bedrooms , rumpus, pergola & a backyard garden. We love singing and an active member of our parish choir. Our daughter still lives w/ us , my husband is a chef & I'm an accounts Payable/gen cashier, both working in the same hotel in Wollongong. Our friends frequent the house because they find that we are accommodating and always have special foods to share, likewise fresh harvest. We consider our guests as part of our family and we look and take good care of them.
from time to time, we allow them to cook their special food to share with the family and do the cleaning up afterwards.

Myself and 3 friends stayed with Maria after the Yours & Owls music festival in Woolongong. Maria was super nice and gave us a free lift to festival because she was going that way for some errands anyway, which was super lovely! We didn’t really use the facilities at her house to the extent we could have eg: having a shower or eating breakfast because we felt a bit unsure and a bit uncomfortable to do that. For the time that we were there, we spent it cooped up in the bedroom because we didn’t really feel like we were allowed anywhere else. But all in all, we needed a place to sleep for the night and that’s what we got. I would recommend this place to anyone who needs the same. Thank you Maria
Maria and family were extremely friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to visit the area. Will definitely contact again he next time I’m in town.
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Very friendly host. Room clean, bed ok. Bit of a delay before being let in.
I have to thank Maria, Danny and Dolly. They made me feel like home, driving me around, cooking dinner for me, always ready to help out in any ways.
The house is close to shops and restaurants and the train station is few minutes walk.
Very friendly Maria.. but dirty linen.. Friday loud party at the neighbor...
Nice place to stay and the hosts were accommodating and flexible with my working shifts.
good basic digs, not to far from Wollongong, close to eateries and clubs
Nice house, nice host.
Maria Linda is a very friendly person loves to talk to people. She took us for a small city tour. Showed us tourist attractions nearby which I liked a lot. As I am an Indian, there's not much Indian food nearby :(
