We were warmly welcomed on arrival and the location was perfect. Coleen was very helpful with local knowledge and transport options. We loved our stay with her and will definitely return. Well done Coleen!
Coleen is very nice and accommodating. While having breakfast, we are able to share stories with her. From history, work, and other personal matters, we were able to talk about almost everything. Very accommodating in our requests such as new sheets, blankets and linens. And she even gave us some of her homemade muesli for us to take home! Such a lovely host!
Her house is very cozy. Its location is just a few walks to train and bus stations. Since it is near New Town King Street, there are a lot of cafes, restaurants and stores you can visit even at night.
Up to our last day in Sydney, we really felt at home in Coleen’s place. Thanks Coleen! We had a great time staying in your place. We hope to see you again next year when we visit :)
Coleen is very nice and friendly. She always chatted with us. At the last few days, I felt upset because I don't want to move out the warm house, and also that was my first time to eat muesli when I stayed at Coleen's house, and I totally love it, healthy and delicious! I think this experience will change some of my life attitude.
Coleen was a fantastic host. She provided us with plenty of information on the area. It is a proper inner city terrace which we loved for our city getaway. Very conveniently located to the train station and main street of Newtown. Highly recommended, we would definitely stay again next time we visit Sydney.
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).
