My wife and I had a really good time at Laurence's. The room and bathroom were generally clean, with periodic maintenance. The location is really good too, just a brisk 5 minute walk from Kings Cross Station, and 2 minutes from the nearest bus station.
Laurence and Ryan were also very warm and helpful with general directions to move about the city. Check in and check out was flexible as we were given keys to the house.
Their 2 dogs are so endearing that we couldn't wait to see them every morning! Despite the dog lovers that we were, we were also pleased that they were very calm and hardly made any noise, and were mostly upstairs.
Definitely recommended to the traveller who's looking for a warm housey atmosphere :)
Laurence's home and warm welcome were beyond great. I cannot say enough good things about her, the flat and the overall experience. Excellent location, had everything I needed (including even some Parisian touches), wonderful art, and the 2 cocker spaniels are adorable too.
This was the perfect entry point for my time in Sydney -- and I would stay here again in an instant!
Enjoyable stay host very helpful with information and ideas for our short visit to Sydney good central base easy walk to Kings cross station would recommend it.
Everything perfect: accessible, friendly, efficient, would definitively stay in the same place if I go back!
Very friendly couple, great room, everything was perfect, we would definitely recommend Laurence and Ryan's place !
I spent a few days in Sydney for work, and I this was the perfect place to stay! It's incredibly well-located, just a few steps from Kings Cross station and a pleasant walk or jog to many attractions. I was able to walk to work each day and had a swift 30 min. transport to the airport via a public train.
The hosts are lovely people, extremely friendly and accommodating. Their flexibility made for smooth check-in and check-out. They've got a delightful little girl and two sleepy dogs, which won't disturb you even if you're not a dog person.
The place itself is beautiful, with big spacious rooms and plenty of natural light. It's tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined block and just steps away from Ruschutters Bay Park and Potts Point, an upscale neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants.
You're guaranteed to enjoy your stay here!
La casa de Laurence está muy bien ubicada, se puede ir caminando a varios lugares turísticos y hay de todo cerca (para comer, supermercado, tren, transporte al aeropuerto, etc.). Es un lugar muy recomendable para una estadía en Sydney y la familia anfitriona es amorosa.
Both Laurence and Ryan we such hospitable, trusting, and friendly hosts! They were incredibly helpful with introducing us to the city and its best attractions, as well as providing us with some terrific “insider” knowledge of the area. Their lovely home is conveniently located near the city rail, so travelling within Sydney is a breeze. I couldn’t imagine my trip to Sydney without Laurence and Ryan! Don’t hesitate to book your next stay in Sydney with this wonderful family!
