Interaction with Guests
I can assist guests with local information and transport options in Sydney and Australia. Some guests want the non tourist walk options and one couple brought their bicycles for transport and parked them in the front room.
My trendy neighbourhood is friendly and close to everything. Coffee culture 50 cafes and restaurants, a shopping mall and a cinema complex within walking distance.The gym, swimming pool and Sydney Park are all close for anyone wanting exercise. A shopping centre with supermarket, alcohol shop, butchers, bakers and deli. Some novelty and clothes and phone shops.

Lovely familiar atmosphere! We felt very comfortable. Clean and cute house.
Went to a yoga workshop with Mark Whitwell in nearby community centre and had a great stay at Coleen's house. She's a great host and even gave me a lift to the airport (as I didn't eat breakfast).
Thank you Coleen for this nice stay. I must admit the homemade muesli was delicious!
Nice and clean house. Your host was very helpful.
We would like to come again,
Thank you so much Coleen!!!
We really enjoyed the stay in your house. It was so nice talking to you and have dinner with you. And also thank you very much for the chairs for New Years Eve ;-).
As mentioned in the previous feedbacks, Coleen gave us maps and a lot of information.
Our room as well as the house was clean and the possibility to use the kitchen as well as the living room was perfect.
The house was located very close to the railway station.
Coleen made our stay a very memorable and an enjoyable one! She stood outside her house to make sure we found the right house. She also gave us lots of useful maps and valuable insights on what to do in Sydney and especially on the less touristy stuff. Coleen makes really good homemade museli and she went out of her way to get us soy milk. She is very accommodating to all of our needs, helping us with laundry and making us a cuppa when we first arrived. When we were leaving, she saw us with our luggages and offered to send us to the airport, out of her way! She has lots of travel stories which always never fail to interest us. Will definitely recommend this place to everyone in Sydney as her place is so convenient to the city and Coogee/Bondi beach :)
Fabulous stay at Colleen’s House in Newton , from the minute we walked through the door we were made to feel welcomed and at home. Colleen’s home was perfect in terms of location with St. Peters train station around a 5 minute walk and Colleen was onhand to provide information about the other local transport and the best areas and how to get around.
Colleen’s homemade muesli was fantastic, colleen even made a batch without nuts as I was allergic!
Overall Colleen’s stories about her travels made our stay extremely relaxed and enjoyable, and would certainly recommend Colleen’s house to other people looking for a warm welcome in Sydney .

I love retirement, working out at the local gym, snorkelling, reading, movies, dinner outings and overseas travel most recently to Poland and Tasmania.
