*Please note we recently changed sofa beds! The current sofa bed is by King Furniture and is made of engineered, steel frames providing the ultimate in support and durability. The idea of steel and comfort may seem contradictory – King Furniture’s POSTUREFLEX® seating systems are engineered to provide the strength and support necessary for lasting comfort and relaxation. This same steel system of seat suspension is used by Porsche and Rolls Royce to guarantee the ultimate in seating and sleeping.

Guest access

You have independent access through a secure garage accessed from the rear laneway. Guests have access to the garden and laundry which we share with our guests.

Interaction with guests

We like to hear how our guests are getting on and to see if they need anything so we tend to have a chat in the garden as guests come and go. We are normally present during our guests stay and we meet and greet guests on arrival and like to farewell guests on departure.

We really enjoyed our weekend stay at Betty's loft! We arrived really early, and she was very accommodating and helpful with getting us settled. One thing in particular that really stood out to us was that Opal cards were available for us to use. It made getting to central Sydney much easier (~8 minutes walk to the nearest train station). The neighborhood around the loft also had a lot of nice places to eat. Overall, the loft was exactly as advertised: clean, comfortable, and private, and was just what we needed to explore the city for a few days.

My recent stay at The Loft was perfect. It was very clean, comfortable, private and the location is convenient. The Loft is close to shops and cafes and a 5 minute walk takes you to Green Square station and then it is only a 3 minute commute into central Sydney. The wifi was reliable and fast. My hosts had superb communication skills, were always available, were super helpful and were also very considerate with giving me all the space I needed. I highly recommend a stay, and hope to visit again!

I totally enjoyed my stay in the loft. It's only small but was perfect for what I needed. Very handy to public transport with Betty and Paul being fabulous hosts. They are very welcoming and accommodating but also respectful of our privacy. I would totally stay there again.

I am an Adelaide born Australian and I enjoy a good work life balance between my small business and a fun filled social life with my English born partner and our glasses are definitely half full, not half empty!

Our travel experiences include South East Asia, Mexico, USA & Europe and I have worked and lived in England, Venezuela and Germany. We aspire to being 'grey nomads' one day and would like to circumnavigate Australia!

Well we have been airbnb hosts now for over four years! How the time flies when you're having fun! We have met amazing people from all over the world and almost travel vicariously through our guests! Airbnb now plays an important part in our lives and we have truly become living and breathing airbnb advocates!

We love our home and look forward to continuing to sharing it with our airbnb guests!

Happy travels!
