Back garden is great for barbeques in summer. The back gate opens onto a quiet park with tennis courts.
We have a spacious 3-bedroom home in Glebe, in the heart of Sydney, near cool cafes and a great selection of restaurants – from good cheap eats to fine dining.
The house is a large two-storey home with 3 large bedrooms, living room, dining room, additional TV room, and mod cons including 32-inch TV, dishwasher, Playstation, and high-speed wireless internet.
The house has high ceilings and is lovely and cool in the summer months. There is a fan in each room for the warmest nights.
The backyard is 20 metres long and 5 metres wide and is a great space to host a barbecue or just let the kids run wild. The garden opens up directly onto a lovely safe, quiet, grassy park with two tennis courts that are available for rent.
Glebe is next to Sydney University and a ten-minute bus ride from the city and all its attractions. The light rail runs through Glebe and is an easy ride to the Fish Markets, Chinatown and Central Station.
Bondi Beach and Maroubra are around 20 minutes away by car if you feel like a refreshing swim.
Anne and James were at the property when we arrived which was a surprise as they had advised us they would not be around. They made us feel very welcome and gave us a tour of the property. It was a lovely place to relax in after busy days in Sydney and has a lovely garden with BBQ. Sunloungers would have made it perfect! Having 2 showers was a blessing with 3 teenagers and the house was lovely and cool. Kitchen was well equipped. At times the contact between Anne and us was delayed due to airbnb not proving alerts to our emails, this caused a little stress on our behalf but everything was as expected when we arrived. We all had a fantastic holiday, thank you Anne and family.

We have just spent a week at Anne's house in Glebe and had a wonderful time. Glebe is a lovely neighbourhood with all convenient stores and lovely cafes just around the corner. Public transportation to Central Sydney or Coogee beach is very easy. The house is perfect for a family of 4, can accommodate 5.
Anne gave us many tips and very useful informations on what was on in Sydney during our stay and this made our holidays so much easier.
Anne was a lovely hostess and we thank her and her children for their kindness.
Anne's house in Glebe is ideally situated, in a lively and character-filled suburb. It's very close to the centre of Sydney, and there's a wide choice of restaurants, cafes, pubs, and even the bays of Sydney Harbour, within walking distance. The house is perfect for a family, and the back garden means you can enjoy a barbeque on Sydney's warm evenings. Anne was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.
I live in Sydney with my family - my husband James and two kids, Thomas (17) and Abby (13). We also have a small dog called, Charlie! Charlie goes to family or friends when we are away so there's no need to worry about him. Anne works in social research and James works in the publishing industry.
We love travelling and are planning to spend some time Asia at the end of 2014, beginning of 2015.
