Colleen's place was a fantastic place to stay while visiting Sydney. It's really easy to get to from the airport and it's in a great neighborhood with several bars, coffee shops, and a few grocery stores.
Colleen is also a great host. She's very friendly and has great information to share about the city and things that were going on while I was there.
I had a really good stay at Colleen's "oasis in the city" . She made me feel really welcome and gave me a lot of useful information about what to do in Sydney and how to get there. Her place is in walking distance of museums and other touristic attractions. It is also close to the bus stop and the train station. I would definitely recommend to stay at Colleen's if you're spending a few days in the city and love to walk around.
Colleen is a very nice host who makes ou feel at home. I had a very peaceful stay, exactly as expected, a real pleasure... Furthermore the apartment is perfectly located for a tour of Sydney and surrounding areas, especially with the valuable tips and helps from the host of the house. You like walking ? There is plenty to do. Otherwise, catch the bus right outside the building. Thank you so much Colleen !
Convenient, welcoming and hassle free accommodation with a comfortable bed and quiet environment.
Colleen is a great host and staying with her felt like home. She had lots of good recommendations and the apartment has a very good location to explore the city centre of sydney. I had a great stay , thank you very much Colleen!
Colleen was a good host cum travel guide. She prepared detailed transport info like bus timings and where to alight etc. Her suggested Bondi-Bronte & Watson's Bay itinerary was my fav as the view was awesome. She also showed me newspaper cut out of CNY events that were taking place so that I won't miss them out. Bus stop is right outside the house and train station is 10min away. Bourke St Bakery and supermarts are just nearby too.
