  • Sybil and Jason are an easy-going couple with whom we enjoyed staying. After sharing travel experiences, they gave us great recommendations which we gladly incorporated into our plans :) We got to and still get to see places beyond the typical route up the east coast. Thanks so much for that.

    The room is separate from the house with a private veranda facing the pool and garden. The veranda is even equipped with a hammock where you can spend a lazy afternoon just hanging in there and pet their cute dog Alaska.
    Highly recommended hosts, hope to see you again.

  • Sybil & Jason thank you very much for all your hospitality. The response couldn't been faster considering a challenging situation of last minute accommodation we were facing. Sybil thank you for been so helpful and kind.
    The bed was comfortable, the installations were clean, the bathroom in good conditions, nice pool, good hammock and just 15 min walking from the city. Been in a summer season & tropical area, there were a couple of bugs here and there. Alaska is a very nice and behave dog and Jason & Sibyl were very pleasant company. Muchas gracias

  • Convenient location - on a quiet street moments away from the town centre and beaches, this is the perfect launchpad from which to explore Port Macquarie! The room was very clean upon arrival and supplied with a mini fridge, kettle, plates, cups, bowls, and wineglasses, as well as sponge/soap/towel for washing, which was very convenient when we wanted to have a small snack or drink. The bathroom was clean and tidy, nice hot showers. The hammock out on the timber deck is great for relaxing, and Alaska the dog is super friendly and well behaved. And Sybil and Jason are very friendly and helpful, we enjoyed chatting with them and learning all about the fun and lovely things Port Macquarie has to offer - great place to stay!

  • Sybil, Jason and Alaska were the perfect hosts. On numerous occasions they reminded us that if we needed anything they were happy to help. They offered some advice on nearby attractions and we really enjoyed Alaska's company - might I add he is extremely well trained. The room had everything we need for a relaxing getaway , all was comfortable and clean. The highlight was enjoying the pool and lazing around in the hammock. It is located very close to the town centre and other attractions such as the lighthouse, beaches and the koala hospital is only a couple of minutes away. We would definitely recommend this place to friends and would book again when we return to visit the koala we adopted form the hospital.

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Sybil and Jason's and are so grateful to them for accepting us for 3 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. They are a generous, kind and friendly couple and helpful in every way. The location was perfect for us with the added bonus of being near my mother who lives in the area, Just a short walk to the beach and shops with a lovely shop just around the corner for essentials. The pool area is like a little piece of paradise. It is a quiet, private oasis. Sybil and Jason were away for part of the time we were there and we happily helped out a little. We visited places Jason recommended and really enjoyed all of them. Tony had a great time meeting up with cycling groups for early morning rides and cafe stops. Port Macquarie is a great place with lots to offer and we look forward to coming back. Alaska was a wonderful, friendly dog and we enjoyed his company very much. All the best to you Sybil and Jason!

  • My mom and I had a really nice stay at Jason and Sybil's. Part of the garage is converted into a cozy bedroom with an adjoining brightly tiled bathroom. The deck, the hammock and the extremely comfortable bed made our stay relaxed and comfortable. If you are a light sleeper, ear plugs help cut down on the occasional traffic noise. Alaska, the labrador is extremely friendly so dog lovers should definitely stay here. Unfortunately, it was too cold to swim when we were there and recent windy days had blown a lot of debris into the pool. The location is really convenient and if you like to walk you can walk to town in 10/15 minutes. Milkbar is delicious for breakfast and rainforest cafe has great food and a nice shady walk to enjoy.

  • We spent a wonderful week in Sybil and Jason's accommodation. The place is very quiet and relaxing and the private deck with the hammock makes you feel even more on holidays! The location is great to go either to the beach, to the town centre or to the Koala hospital. And Sybil, Jason and Alaska are great hosts! They are super friendly and will provide you with great information and addresses in the area or even around the globe! We enjoyed spending time talking about travels and food with them and if we are in the area again we'll make sure to stay again with them.

  • We had a great time in Port Macquarie thanks, in a big way, to Sybil and Jason's great accommodation and hosting. The bed was so comfortable we couldn't help but have afternoon naps most days, when we weren't relaxing in the hammock or wandering the coastal track (thanks for the recommendation!). And special thanks for hosting us on the Easter long weekend!

    April 2013
  • Highly recommended! The room is clean and comfortable and exactly as expected from the description and pictures. What made our stay exceptional was the genuine kindness of Jason and Sybil who made us feel like visiting friends. Port Macquarie is a lovely town with great beaches and when we return we hope to stay here again. P.S when you go say hi to Alsaka for us

About
Port Macquarie is our little paradise!Living here was a great lifestyle change from our live in the Middle East. Sybil is Brazilian/Swiss/Polish and Jason is Australian. We've travelled the world together and speak quite a few languages too. On the weekends we're relaxing with friends, family or we're out in the garden taking care of the plants...at the beach or at the pool. During the week we're busy with sports and work. Alaska, our dog, is a really friendly lab. He LOVES having guests over but he also respects guests who do not want to play with him.
