I had the greatest time staying at Althea’s home and getting to know her and her husband. For my first really big trip (I’m from Canada) it was a comfort to be in a home with everything, with home owners who really care, and in a neighbourhood with all the amenities you could possibly need. Both Althea and her husband was always willing to have a conversation and to share a recommendation! They both really take the time to get to know you, and make sure you feel right at home from the minute you arrive. Thanks for helping to make my first trip to Australia a memorable one! Hope to see you again soon!
It was a pleasant stay with Althea and Shaun. They are both very friendly and helpful. Clean and comfortable house!
Had an excellent stay with Althea and Shaun.
It was the best stay! Althea picked me up from the station and I immediately knew,we would get along. She is such a friendly person, she made arriving in their home so easy. When I saw my room and the house in general, I was just blown away. I had done my fair share of moving around and setteling into new place that year, and in this case it felt like coming home. The room was superclean, well equiped and if you miss anything, Althea and Shaun, who are so helpful and generous,will help you with it. The kitchen, which you share with the other guest, is lovely and has everything you need. I often baked and they always allowed me to use their oven. You also share the bathroom,which is huge and has a shower and a bath tub, with the other guest. You don't even have to clean,as there is a cleaning lady coming once a week. It is really luxurious.
Also, I was hesitating as to how much Althea and Shaun would appreciate me disturbing them in their evenings, but they really make you feel like family and we actually ended up spending the best evenings talking and having dinner at occasions. They are both really lovely people and have such interesting stories to tell.
The neighbourhood is not in central sydney, it is more like a more quiet suburb. It is really lovely and you can get back to the heart of the action in no time. I will definentely come back the next time I am in Sydney and I will always remember my time in this home away from home.
Let me begin with this - it is difficult to explain in words the immense pleasure we had at staying with Shaun and Althea. They are not only great hosts but very generous and caring couple.
They have a very beautifully maintained house in one of the best neighbourhood of Sydney with CBD just about a 15 minute bus ride and Market, a 10 mins walk. Apart from all this, the best part is they have a number of wonderful bushwalk around their home.
Shaun and Althea are easily approachable and are always ready to help. They even took the pain to take us in and around Sydney to help us know the place better. Even on the last day Shaun made an extra effort to take us to Station so as to make our cumbersome shifting process comfortable.
We cannot thank our stars enough that the first place we stayed in Sydney was with Shaun and Althea. Needless to say it was a home away from home and they treated us like family rather than homestay guests.
Apart from helping us out with advices around what to purchase, places to visit, how to cook :), they also celebrated our small successess like a family, which was a memorable and sweet gesture.
We would highly recommend Althea to all guests on homestay. This was truly a HOME rather than a 'HOME STAY'!
Staying with Althea and Shaun was an absolute pleasure. They are very welcoming, helpful and make you feel like you found a home away from home. The room is very nice, spacious and the kitchen is well equipped. The house is in a really nice and quit area. I really enjoyed staying with them and I would definitely recommend this Homestay to everyone who is planning to come to Sydney.
Recently I had the pleasure to stay with Althea in Lane Cove. It was like home away from home. A very comfortable room with the use of a sitting room and well equipped kitchen overlooking the garden. Close to public transport with bus stop to the city only a few meters from the house. Easy walking distance from the Lane Cove shopping centre where one can find food markets, restaurants, cafes and interesting boutiques and shops. Althea and Shaun, our hosts, are pleasantly welcoming and helpful. I recommend this location and would not hesitate to return.
I had a wonderful time at Althea’s & Shaun’s lovely home!
The house was always very clean and tidy. I shared the bathroom, living room and kitchen with a second guest who stayed in the blue room. That was never a problem because the rooms are really big. The kitchen was well equipped and perfect to prepare several meals.
It is very easy to get to CBD by public transport. There is no train station in walking distance but a bus right in front of the house which takes you in about 20min to CBD.
Althea and Shaun were lovely hosts! They were really approachable and did more than I’ve ever expected. It was a big pleasure to stay with them and felt like home after a few days!
Thanks for making my stay in Sydney special!
I was extremely fortunate to have stayed at Althea's place for a few weeks, the hosts Althea and Shaun were very very friendly and accommodating, the room was nicely set up with internet ready to use and a television mounted on the wall, cooking utensils are available should you want to cook
The location is superb with a bus stop to the city right outside, a plaza about 10 minutes walk away, you can also get to either the City and Chatswood within 15 to 20 minutes by bus.
The back of the house faces a small nature reserve, wild parrots will fly to the balcony every morning, and I've seen a few shooting stars at night.
A very good experience, I would definitely stay here again if I get the chance in the future
A wonderful homestay! Althea and Shaun are so caring and helpful, I've had a great time staying with them. The house is lovely, the rooms are big and the kitchenette is very well equipped. Lovely neighbourhood, easy for getting into city. There's really nothing I didn't like! :)
