It's a great place to stay with the Harbour views and waterfront not very far. I would recommend this place to stay.

Our stay at Pierre's home was really great. Pierre is really kind and ready to help you. The house located near the harbour, so you can enjoy great views during your breakfast in the garden. Location is very convenient to visit the city: 15 minutes by bus or you can take ferry (15 minutes walk to the ferry stop). If you want nice and relaxed stay, Pierre's house is definitely a good choice.

Staying at Pierre's place was a wonderful experience and for sure an added value for those who want to visit Sydney. Pierre is a really helpful, thoughtful and interesting person. It was nice talking with him about all kind of topics at any time during the day. Feeding the lorikeets at the very beginning of our stay in his beautiful garden, with this amazing view makes this place even more comfortable. The house and room was clean and we had all the necessary and even more! The bus is only a 5 min walk from the house and takes you within 15-20min to the CBD. We highly recommend Pierre's place since this has been one of our best experiences through AirBnb!

The stay at Pierre was really nice: a super nice vue from the garden while having breakfast, a hammock to enjoy a bit longer, a big room with good quality mattress, boat-bus accessible close by to go to the opera, some good talks... we felt good and welcomed so we even stayed one extra night :) A recommended host and place! Merci Pierre!

The location is exactly as described right above a public park ( that has direct access to sea) with an awesome view. It it exceptionally clean. ( in answer to previous review it was clearly previous BnB people rather then owner I see regularly cleaning common areas but who is sometimes away but very contactable , knowledgable and charming) and the rooms airy and bright. The bathroom and kitchen were spotless. There is one main bathroom but there is a spare one if urgently needed. Plenty of privacy. Buses are plentiful and direct to city via anzac bridge. I had pleasant meals including one Pierre cooked and good conversation. I would not hesitate staying again when next down south Drummoyne.

My aim is for you to feel at home. Being a linguist, I like to discuss any subject. I also like travelling, trekking, swimming, dancing... I teach or have taught English, French, Italian, Spanish and German, so if you are from those background, we have a language in common. I also like cooking, particularly Asian food, but I also prepare French and Breton dishes.
My house is simple and has always had a good feel about it. The lovely little lorikeets that visit everyday are one of its blessings. One the best features of the garden is the hammock on the top tier, from which there is a beautiful view over the harbour.
