"Absolutely incredible hosts! There is nothing I can fault about this property! The house is great. Everything is clean and well organised. It is also in a great location... close to shops, restaurants and public transport. It is right in the heart of Newtown!
All that aside, the best part of this house is Amber and Shane. They are such friendly and welcoming people who take genuine interest in their guests and I really did feel apart of the family. Both were extremely caring and made sure my stay was as comfortable as possible. I have nothing but praise for this home and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for accommodation in Sydney. Thank you Amber and Shane for being such wonderful people :) " Michael, Mel, Aus
"Amber was a totally magnificent host! Great communication leading up to our trip, and then, during our stay she kept in contact over SMS with suggestions for great places to eat and enjoy the local culture. We couldn't have asked for a more caring and thoughtful host.
Thanks Amber! You rock! :)" Peter H (Aus)

"What a great place to stay! THE LOCATION IS UNBELIEVABLE! - it is a stone’s throw from Newtown’s main street, King Street, yet amazingly quiet! The leafy, private courtyard provides a serene setting that makes it easy to forget you are in the city. The perfect spot!
This is an awesome situation in a cool house with people you can trust." Candice (Canada)

I absolutely loved my stay with Amber and Shane! Right away I was met with a thoughtful basket of goodies to help me settle in and made friends with one of the other girls staying with them at the time. Spent lots of quality time with Bridgette the cat and enjoyed catching up on admin on the sunny back patio. I loved neighborhood, so many wonderful restaurants and shops I didn't even want to go see the typical tourist destinations. Would come back in a heartbeat!
I was struck by the warmth of Amber and Shane's welcome and hospitality, and the care they took to look after their guests. They made me feel right at home in their great townhouse in the centre of Newtown. They have my highest recommendation, and I would definitely stay with these awesome people again.
They are best host ever, six star. When I arrive home, there are some presents and guides in my room. Shane was kind and helpful. Amber was away home at that time, but she sometimes call or text me to ask how I feel. Finally we met each other last day. The house and Newtown is so cool. We can go city by bus or train easily. If you are traveler, 230% guarantee you love them.
Oh Ken-san thank you so much for your beautiful words! We loved having you as our guest and you're the reason why we host...
We're happy that you enjoyed your time with us (and at the Asia Cup Football! ;) and exploring our Newtown and Sydney.
All the best with your travels and we look forward to seeing you again some day! :)
I can warmly recommend staying at Amber and Shane's. They where very helpful and generous and seemed to actually enjoy having guests. The info kit and snacks in the room was a nice touch. The room was cozy and Newtown really is a perfect base for exploring Sydney. Thanks guys for making my first airbnb experience such a good one!
Staying with Amber and Shane really makes you feel like you've had the Newtown experience. Great restaurants within a drunken stagger from your front door, the park practically across the street. And if you're in town for work (like I was), you're close to the train station as well. I was able to be Mr. Professional by day and Mr. Bohemian by night.
You don't just stay with Amber and Shane - you become part of a community from the moment you step in the door.
Amber was very welcoming. Her place and the room had been accurately described. I really enjoyed staying there and would definitely recommend it. Amber was very helpful and generous with her time. The house is comfortable with a nice courtyard garden and in a great location in the heart of Newtown with all of its shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, galleries and markets. Close to public transport.
It was an absolute pleasure hosting terrific Terry! He made himself at home and was the consumate ģuest even joining in the fun of our Hordern Heights garage sale. Thanks for our beautiful thank you card! We highly recommend Terry and welcome him back any time! :)
