About This Listing
The room available is in a cottage in East Balmain, a suburb on the Balmain peninsula, close to the CBD. It's a beautiful suburb with loads of parks and the house is just a couple of minutes from Sydney harbour. There are plenty of pubs, restaurants, shops and cafes very close by, as well as easy public transport to the city (bus within 5 minutes' walk, ferry is 15 minutes away).
The room contains a comfortable queen size bed, bedside tables and wardrobe, and everything that you need for a short or longer stay. You'll have your own bathroom and there is access to a laundry if needed.
The house is tastefully furnished and you're welcome to use the shared areas, including a courtyard.
The house has a really good feel to it and I'm sure you'll find it to be a relaxing sanctuary during your stay in Sydney.
I'm happy to assist with recommendations for good restaurants, day trips and of course, everything around the house. If you'd like to share my breakfasts or dinners, please just let me know.
Access to shared areas, including kitchen, is welcomed during normal hours (until around 10pm). There are plenty of places for a drink / night out nearby if that's what you want to do.
If you're spending lots of time in the house, I'd appreciate it if you could take your shoes off to minimise noise. I have slippers available
Although the check in time is flexible, please let me know your arrival details as soon as possible so I can ensure I'll be around (or I'll make arrangements to have the key available).
Please do not smoke inside the house or in the back yard
I'll give you a set of keys so you can come and go as you need
I expect basic courtesy and respect for privacy.
We were made to feel very welcome and the room and house were immaculate. Good location in Balmain. Highly recommended.
This was my first experience of an Airbnb, and it everything and more than I expected.
Anna was a delightful host, but even before I'd arrive she had made contact, so it made me feel comfortable about arriving somewhere new.
Anna's house and the room I stayed in, is lovely - and as stated, quiet.
Balmain is v accessible to the city centre withfrewuent buses, and Balmain itself has many shopsand places to eat.
Would firmly recommend for Anna's hospitality. Comfort and location.
We absolutely loved our stay in Balmain East. It is a really nice neighborhood with lots of little cafe's and easy access to public transport to the city. Anna was very welcoming and lovely and the house and room are stunning! I would definitely recommend Anna's place to everyone who is visiting Sydney.
The location was excellent and accommodation beautiful. Anna made me feel very welcome and I enjoyed conversing on day to day things as well as things outside of Sydney. All facilities were accessible and it was the perfect place to finish my holiday.
The house admirably fitted the description given.
Great accommodation, great area and great host. Anna really makes you feel at home. I definitely recommend it.
I really enjoyed staying in Anna's home. It was beautifully designed and well-kept. The bedroom was simple and clean. The bed was so comfortable, I slept for 9 hours one night! Anna was super welcoming and very sweet. She made sure I had everything I needed.
The neighborhood was very nice and cute but not in the city center. A 15 min walk to the ferry harbor with a 6 min ferry ride to Circular Quay or a 15 min uber ride.
I definitely recommend Anna and her lovely home to anyone.
Anna was very helpful and the cottage is awesome, located in a great spot, pub footsteps away and a shop easy bus and ferry access also , highly recommended ☺
About the Host, Anna
