Über die Gastfamilie
- Willkommen sind
Our family lives in a quiet, leafy suburb on a peninsular 9km from the centre of Sydney. Our home is a large 6 bedroom house with a pool and table tennis table. We have 3 children all in their 20's and 30's - and all are now living away from home. My husband usually works in New Zealand coming back to Sydney every few weeks. We often have other travellers staying so you can expect to meet some interesting people if you stay here.
We are originally from New Zealand but now love the climate and way of life in Australia, especially Sydney. The area where we live is very safe and is conveniently accessed by a bus service. The bus takes 30 mins to the city centre. There is also a ferry service with a limited timetable that serves our peninsular. The ferry wharf is an easy 5-10 min stroll away. It is a wonderful way to travel into the city and only takes 20 mins. You can use your Opal card or credit card on the ferry.
Our street is wide with little traffic. If you come by your own car parking is not a problem.
If you are arriving at the airport I can pick you up from the St Leonard's train station for a nominal charge of $5 or I will pick you up from the airport ($50 for 1, $60 for 2) during non peak hour. Sydney traffic can be terrible!
Wir sprechen nur Englisch zu Hause, aber ich lebte in Mexiko für ein Jahr, so haben recht gut Spanisch Konversation.

Our house is located on the north side of the Harbour Bridge on a peninsula so we have water nearby. The nearest shopping centre is Lane Cove which is 2.5km from our home. There are beautiful views of the harbour from further up our street.
Longueville is 9km from the city and 35mins drive to the airport, the bus stop to the city is 3 mins walk away.

Wir mögen keine Raucher-und Nichtraucher wäre Gäste bevorzugen. Kurz (5min) Duschen - Australien ist ein sehr trockenes Land, und wir alle versuchen, Wasser zu sparen.
Rauchen ist nicht gestattet.
Frances is so very kind and helpful. I had good impression on her via homestay.com but when I met her, she was far more than I expected. She helped pick me and my stufff up and dropped me off at the airport with a very reasonable fee. She genuinely wants to help her guests to make the most of their time in Sydney rather than purely focusing on making money. Her house is really clean and big located in a very quiet street. Once you meet her, I'm sure you would trust and respect straight away. I will definitely come back again. Such a fantastic accommodation and a wonderful host!
Frances was very nice as well as all the residents there. The accommodations were all good and overall very comfortable and cozy.
our best stay ever. very friendly, helpful and you feel be part of the family.
Very lovely host. Frances made me feel like home when I needed it the most. She is also very accommodating and helpful if you need. The house is clean and safe.
I would definitely come back.
I stayed with Frances for about 20 days. It was a pleasant time. Frences is very nice, when I arrive she picked me up at the train station and cooked delicious meals for me. Thank you very much Frences and I will strongly recommend to my friends who wish to find a homestay in Sydney.
The host cancelled the booking 332 days before the arrival date.
We have stayed in your house with very enjoy.
Our two little girls are still missing you and talking sometimes.
They have memorized this 1week stay is one of the best experiences of AUS trip.
Thanks again. I wish we will meet again one day.
My mother and I had a really lovely stay with Frances and Steven over the long weekend. Their house is well appointed, clean, homely and in one of the most beautiful parts of Sydney. Public transport is within a short walk of the house (but taxi/ Uber might be needed over weekends to get you to a train station due to more restricted timetable). They are a delightful couple - very welcoming and we enjoyed some really interesting conversations with them as well as the other guests there at the time. It was such a lovely stay we plan to return as an annual event.
I had a lot of fun and happy to stay with Frances and her home stay family. Frances is so kind and helpful always. The view around her house is very good. I could visit to famous places in Sydney, had great memories for me.
Our homestay by Frances was nice. She picked us up at the AirPort. And there was a possibility to eat together with Some other guests. The bus to the city is just a couple minutes away and you can go with your Opal card.
You can have breakfast: when you want something you have to look in the kitchen and take what you want.
Frances is nice, but a little chaotic.
In the night we played Some nice games together.
