About this listing
This space is located in the professional, clean, leafy north shore suburb of Gordon. Surrounded by nature with plenty of quiet natural walks in a 1km radius. If you are after an area that is quiet and relaxing and has some nice restaurants nearby then Gordon is the place for you!
I'm an experienced traveller, couchsurfer, professional who loves talking to travellers from around the world.

It is directly opposite Gordon train station, the most efficient train line in Sydney. Its a 30 minute ride to the CBD, 10 minutes to the Chatswood CBD where you will find loads more restaurants and shops and a 5 minute bus ride to Macquarie Shopping Centre.

Donny is a nice person to deal with: friendly and helpful. Addition thanks for picking us from and to the station. The room if fine considering the price and the house is 15min from the station in a beautiful green and quiet aria.
Donny is a friendly guy who genuinely is interested in learning more about other people. During my stay, Donny was more than helpful. Whether it was cooking up some food and offering to share, giving rides to the train station, giving us great little spots to explore, directions, etc! He really is a genuinely nice person which makes it easy to feel welcome and comfortable. Only downside is the place is a bit far from the train station/food store if you are traveling by foot. If you don't mind a little exercise and fresh air then you will love your stay!
Fun guy, delightful host who goes out his way to make you feel comfortable.
Donny is a very accomodating and likeable chap.
While he does work long hours he does his best to accomodate a person and is very helpful.

About the Host, Donny
30. Professional. Traveler, Business Owner, Interested in the variety and backgrounds of people and couch surfing without strings.
Friendly, accommodating and willing to help you with inside knowledge whether you are here for a holiday, conference or just a weekend visit. Either way, I will help accommodate with your needs and personal space.
My personal motto would be, "Never wish life was better, only you were Better"
::::THIS IS WHAT I WILL TELL YOU TO EXPECT POSITIVE AND NEGATIVES::::
Positive: I will help and make things easier for you in your stay, pick up from station when I can, leave food out if your hungry and you don't mind trying my/my family's food, and try and give you tips to save yourself here and there. I will as a host try and take care of you.
Negative: I am not a butler, you will be expected to clean up after yourself, follow house rules, keep the kitchen and public area in some order. You have to wear slippers (YES it is an Asian House), and sometimes other people will be staying so you do have to respect their space. I will also expect you to communicate if you wish to extend your stay or are running late.
All prices include, fully furnished, basic breakfast and tea and coffee, bread, pickup from station and clear directions to maximize your travellers time in the city ( As I am quite a traveller myself). Also wireless internet, toilet paper, soap and clean towels and access to a washing machine and kitchen which needs to be used carefully.
I also believe food is a great way to connect people and I love to source ingredients from markets and cook for my guests and it would be great if we could sit down over a meal and do the same and be able to do that. I am also able to converse in a variety of topics which include culture, music, politics and travel and would love to use a meal to get to know you as well. So all the prices MAY (depending on schedule) a personal cooking together and experience as we get to know each other if schedule suits.
I ONLY host people who I feel are in the same headspace and GENERALLY (but not always) no large families and people who BARGAIN BASEMENT my prices as they already very competitive.
