Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Fiona and Graham's place is lovely; light and airy and four excellent bedrooms and very nice outdoor spaces. It is very well equipped with everything you could need. And Fiona and Graham are very kind and welcoming, and were very keen to make sure everyone was well accommodated and happy. Thoroughly recommended and hope to stay there again.

  • Still travelling so a little late in our review. We wanted to thank Fiona & Graham for making us so welcome and comfortable in their lovely Sydney home. Balmain is a really interesting place to stay with easy access into the city via the ferry and was ideal for the New Year fireworks viewed from a nearby park. It was a great experience for the five of us to stay in such a lovely Sydney home. Thank you.
