  • Colleen is an amazing hostess, knowledgeable of the local area and facilities with a great sense of humour. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Coleen was an amazing host, she gave us a lot of good advices and helpful tips, as we just moved to Australia from Europe. We really enjoyed the 4 weeks we spent at her place, which is in a very nice suburb very close to the city. Thanks a lot for everything!

  • A nice room close to St Peter Station, a bit further if you want to reach the cool aeras of Newton by feet. Coleen is hepful, you can ask her about restaurants and good spots in Sydney.

  • During our three week stay we found Coleen to be very friendly and accommodating. The house was a great space to chill out in and we had sole use of the bathroom. Coleen is a fountain of knowlege and is always happy to share it with you. We highly recommend Coleen.

  • Coleen has a lovely home and was a fantastic host. The bed is very comfortable and Coleen is very accommodating, with lots of great suggestions for places to see and things to do when we were new to Sydney. If you like a cup of tea and a chat this is a really great place to stay. Was a lovely place for us to find our feet.

  • The weather was the only thing we didn't enjoy during our long weekend stay at Coleen's. Coleen is friendly and gave us lots of tips and ideas of places to visit and things to do and not just the touristy gimmicky stuff. Her place is just 5 mins walk to the train station so very handy and close to local takeaways as well.

  • My husband and I really enjoyed staying for 6 weeks with Coleen in her lovely terrace house. Coleen is an excellent host and we spent quite some time together cooking, eating and talking. She was really helpful and knows a lot about things to do and see in Sydney. Our room was nicely decorated and spacious enough and the bathroom next to it was only used by us, which was very convenient. We could also use her kitchen and washing machine and the WiFi is very fast.
    Coleen's house is perfectly located in a quiet area of Sydney’s Inner West. Nearby King Street offers a plenty of moderate priced restaurants (mainly Asian), lots of vintage stores, boutiques, cafes, bars and pubs. Sydney Park, which is great for jogging, is also really close as well as a huge shopping center.
    We really felt “at home” and would definitely stay again with her.

  • Our stay with Coleen was great! The location is perfect with easy access everywhere by train, or bus and to the ferries. Newtown is full of great coffee shops, restaurants, shops...we loved it. The home is like a little sanctuary in the middle of a busy city. We were able to prepare our own meals (which is our preference when we travel) and Coleen was very generous with her time, home, local knowledge and friendship.

  • Excellent hostess, location and accommodation!

    From the minute my boyfriend and I arrived at Coleen's house she was gracious generous and welcoming!

    Accommodation:
    We enjoyed a good size bedroom with plenty of storage for our 20 kilos each clothing. The bed was very comfortable (I even asked her for the brand of mattress) and there were fresh sheets and towels once a week as well as access to her laundry if we needed to do any washing. Coleen allowed us to use her kitchen and all that was in it and even allowed us space in her fridge.
    She has a spacious living room that looks out onto her garden which has a plethora of herbs and lettuce that she welcomes you to use as much as you like! We took full advantage of newspapers and useful articles that Coleen left out for us that she thought would be entertaining or helpful. We were given our own key to come and go as we pleased. We had virtually a private en suite with shower and bath as the bathroom was right next to our bedroom. The wireless was sound and fast. The house was clean and comfortable, exactly what you hope for on your journey.

    Location:
    Coleen is conveniently located near St Peter's station which is in (website hidden) Peters provides a 15 minute ride into the city centre or a link to the station that takes you straight to the beach! Newtown is a bohemian, alternative vibrant community. It is littered with young professionals who enjoy the international mix of food and culture, students who come for the affordable drinks and food and families looking to be close to the city and remain in touch with their chosen theatre and arts lifestyle. There are plenty of coffee shops, restaurants, cinemas, grocers and clothing shops.

    The hostess:

    Coleen could not have been more pleasant, helpful, understanding and thoughtful during our time at her house. She truly welcomed us and made relevant and interesting recommendations. Coleen has great knowledge of international and Australian travel. She has great tips and advice for all levels of travel either for the locality, where she actively, snorkels, bush walks and cross country skis or Australia-wide. My boyfriend and I were permanently moving over and needed interim accommodation and Coleen had been so generous in her recommendations and as well as her personal assistance with her references and use of her computer. Over the course of our stay we shared a few meals and many coffees and by the time we left, we felt our stay in Australia was widely influenced by Coleen’s generosity and excellent hospitality.
    She is a lovely intelligent lady with great coffee to boot!

  • First, thank you very much Coleen for your welcoming and your kindness! Sharing all the moments with you was a pleasure, even if Nadal lost!! lol
    For us, this stay was like at home, with someone of our family who took care of us!
    The room is cosy with private bathroom, it's very confortable. We are 20 minutes away from the city center by train, a very good location.

    It was our first Airbnb experience, and we are right now in New Zealand, and keep enjoying Airbnb.
