Your hosts Connie and Roy grew up in Sydney and know all the magic spots that tourists should not miss and would love to share their love of Sydney with you.
Out the gate of the complex and you are on the doorstep of the Rhodes Shopping Centre, Sydney Olympic Park and Reading Cinema. Sydney Olympic Park is home to Allphones Arena, the Sydney Showground, Aquatic Centre, Tennis Centre, ANZ Stadium as well as 40 hectares of parkland that you can ride around in.
So why not come join us on your next visit to Sydney. Relax on the balcony or by the pool. Stroll in the shopping centre, park or waterside boardwalk or use the apartment as a base to discover the best Sydney has to offer.
Our family including our 2 very friendly Burmese cats are looking forward to meeting and helping you on your next trip to Sydney.

Beautiful accomodation in a modern,clean and scenic setting. The room is spacious and the ensuite stunning.
My first stay in a private room was highly successful. Connie was a fabulous host; there if I needed her, yet respectful of my privacy. She willingly shared great tips for getting around.
A 5 minute walk finds you at a shopping mall with everything you could need and more!
The public transport is outstanding with an Opal card giving stress free access to buses,trains and ferry systems.
Access to Olympic Park a good, yet pleasant walk or train trip.
I would highly recommend staying with Connie, and would certainly return
We had a wonderful time there. Connie was really nice to us :). Thank you again for letting us staying here.
This was my first air BnB experience. Connies place was gorgeous and comfortable. Connie was lovely and welcoming. I couldn't have asked for a lovelier time.
Connie and Roy's apartment in Rhodes is a great place to get your bearings in Sydney. It's in a modern apartment complex (with a pool!), very secure, and the balcony has beautiful, peaceful views of Homebush Bay. The room and bathroom are well-appointed, resembling a nice hotel suite. Connie was very friendly and accommodating and even gave me a ride to my new abode when I checked out. Would certainly stay here again.
Connie and her family are a exactly the family you would wish to have for your holiday-stay: Somehow to let you feel like being at home and 20'000 km away from it at the same time. Of course the accommodation, the location (Rhodes!) and the two cats have earned a big thank you too.
