Welcome to Sydney!
A large comfy queen size bed awaits you within this bright and airy room with double French doors leading to your sunny balcony overlooking the street. The house is more reminiscent of being in a traditional french style home than in the centre of this beautiful city we call Sydney!
There is no other accommodation so close to everything in the centre of Sydney with the same advantages. We offer FREE WiFi, FREE cleaning service, air conditioning in the bedrooms and most importantly, we can lend you a mobile phone with FREE local calls to landlines and mobiles within Australia for the duration of your stay.
How does that sound?
This is a traditional terrace on three and a half levels, situated just south of Hyde Park and in walking distance of Central Railway Station.
We are close to Hyde Park, Centre Point Tower, the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, all theatres, museums, art galleries, St Mary's Cathedral, Fox Studios, Sydney Cricket Ground, swimming pool, the Rocks and the Domain.
The local buses will take you to all the best beaches and it is a six minute walk to Central Railway Station and only an eight minute walk to Paddy's Market which is open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Just a two-minute walk from the front door you will find a bus stop for the 555 FREE Shuttle Bus.
There is an abundance of cafes, restaurants and coffee shops, and you can shop till you drop in the City, Darling Harbour, The Rocks and famous Oxford Street.
There is one downside - we cannot get TV reception in this home, so if you are addicted to TV, please don't book - however, we do have a large selection of DVDs which you can watch in the family room or on your laptop in the comfort of your room.
Enjoy your stay in Sydney's CBD with its city life and famous icons and all the best beaches just a bus ride away, including famous Bondi Beach with the Icebergs Club at the south end. This makes winter in Sydney more than just bearable. I drive to Bondi every morning and I am happy to take guests with me if the time suits us both.
A minimum stay of 4 nights applies for NEW YEARS EVE with a holiday loading. The holiday loading is written on the calendar and just to clarify, this rate for the nights around Christmas/New Year is $250 per night with no weekly discount. I trust this helps.
Thanks and look forward to meeting you!
Leonie is a perfect Host. She is doing everything to make your stay comfortable. Very nice charming room with the balcony.
Loved as well the location with lots of nice coffee shops and restaurants around. I would definatley come back to Leonie.
I really enjoyed my stay at Leonie's. I was on a funny schedule and Leonie was very understanding and accommodating.
The accommodation itself is comfortable, clean and cosy - a home from home feel about it. The room I stayed in had a beautiful little balcony and its own bathroom.
Thank you for being a lovely host, Leonie!
Leonie was a very gracious host. The apartment is located in a hip neighborhood with outdoor cafes and restaurants and is a 10 minute walk to Chinatown/Darling Harbor and a 20 minute walk to the Central Business District. Leonie provided helpful recommendations on where to eat (we were very budget conscious but found lots of cheap and delicious options nearby, particularly Asian restaurants with BYO policies), attractions, and transport options. We also got to cuddle with her cat!
Thank you both for being so . . . competent and independent . . . and for your lovely reaction to staying here. You made me happy just to share time with you.
You are genuinely lovely and "real" people and I wish you both the very best that life has to offer - look after each other and have an amazing life together.
Ah Leonie! My Aussie inspiration and empowering maternal figure. Her house is located in the best area for walking and discovering the amazing city of Sydney. Her home is peaceful, interesting, charming and includes a darling cat who didn't make me allergic at all. I really enjoyed her company and our varied conversations on life, the universe, everything! My time spent there felt like visiting a long lost family member. Thank you dear. And hugs to Winslow.
Leona house is very close to downtown, we enjoy walking n stroll to NYC Opera Thai-China town. Leona is very considerate and made guests felt comfortable. More to come back , stay with her and explore more of Sydney.
Leonie was a fantastic host. My partner and I had never been to Sydney and we really loved every minute of it. Leonie took the time to ensure that we were comfortable in her home and gave us suggestions to help us explore the sights of Sydney. We had a lovely room, a very comfy bed, and private bathroom.
When I return to Sydney I will definitely come back to leonie's and have already recommended her place to other friends.
Thank you so much! I am so happy that you both enjoyed your stay and I really do hope to see you both again next time you are visiting Sydney.
And thank you for the publicity! I really appreciate it and will let you know if anyone takes up your suggestion. This is a very easy place to walk from to most of the interesting places in the city.
It was a great stay in Leonies beautiful home.
Leonie is super kind and a fantastic host, we went with her to the beach in her car, and she shoved us around.
All in all we had a great stay, the room was fantastic, our own bathroom and toilet, and our own key so we could come and go as we pleased.
Leonie's place is a very cozy spot right in the centre of Sydney! It's just a 30 minute walk from the Harbour Bridge and the Opera House and even closer to Hyde Park and the Botanic Gardens.
I had an amazing stay, thanks to Leonie's friendly and open-minded personality. She's a great host and I'll definitely stay at her place again when I'm back in Sydney next year!
Staying at Leonie's was a gift. It goes without saying that her place is very well located, and that the room we stayed in was very comfortable; large, restful and beautifully appointed, with access to a private bathroom and a cute balcony. The best part however, was Leonie herself. Leonie is an extraordinary person; warm, generous and inspirational. We came away from Sydney feeling refreshed and revitalised, and very much as though we had spent time with a friend - a particularly wise one! Without question we look forward to staying at Leonie's place again in the future.
We recently stayed with Leonie and really enjoyed our stay. She is very helpful and had a heap of maps and information ready for us. The location of Leonie's place is perfect to explore the city from and there are heaps of restaurants close by. Our bedroom was really comfortable with its own bathroom and a private balcony. If you like cats, Leonie's cat Winslow loves a cuddle.
