Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed at Carol and Tom's around a week. The accommodation was as said
    on the web site, comfortable bed, private space, great shower, close to public transport, close to city and great hosts!
    Tom and Carol went out of their way to point me in the right direction with what transport to take and sights to see while on my stay in Sydney.
    By train I was in the city within 20mins at a cost of $2.50!
    I would stay differently stay with these great hosts and location again when in
    Sydney! Thanks Carol and Tom, Ruth

  • Newtown is boho, hip and happening. So were my hosts. Loved staying with them - Happy to bring me into their lives, yet also happy to give me the privacy when needed. The house is classic Newtown - a renovated terrace, full of souvenirs from their own travels. We got to compare notes about places we both had been over lovely red wine (thank you!), discussed geo politics, and shared ideas about which restaurants were the best in Newtown (there are so many:)) The room was just right - comfortable and quiet, my own bathroom and access to the kitchen and fridge, which was stocked with the guest in mind. The location was at the south end of Newtown, which is more happening, if possible, than other parts. I really enjoyed my time with them, and they represent for me the best of Air BnB hosts - familiar with Sydney, caring and sharing. Thanks guys, you made my stay so much more enjoyable.

  • My Fiancee Samantha and I have just spent 11 nights with Carol and Tom. Their house is gorgoeus, in a fantastic location near King Street, Newtown and they are the perfect hosts who let you get on with your life, and allow you to decide how much interaction you have. They are both friendly and chatty people and were generous enough to share their impressive wine collection during our stay!!

    The room is really comfortable with plenty of storage space in the fitted wardrobes and bedside cabinet for all our belongings. The private bathroom is amazing with a massive pan head shower and jacuzzi bathtub, big enough for 2 adults ;-)

    With Carol and Tom you really do feel like the place is yours and you can help yourself to breakfast and cold drinks if and when you fancy. One of the nicest things is they are not overly fussy people and they treat their guests as adults.

    I would thoroughly recommend staying with them and would have no hesiatation in doing so, should we wish to stay in the Newtown area again.

  • Carol and Tom were wonderful hosts who immediately made us feel very welcome. They could not have been more helpful with information and drove us to my son's wedding which was very much appreciated. The room is cozy and the bathroom was great with a washing machine. The house is a nice terrace house with a lovely back yard in a neighbourhood of some in good repair and some not. It was great to be able to walk to many types of shops and restaurants to suit all tastes. Parking is difficult if you return late at night. Thank you Carol and Tom for a very positive experience!

  • Carol and Tom are simply great, the house is definitely worth it and it's not far away from the train station. Restaurants\supermarkets are only two blocks from there.
    It's a shame i couldn't stay longer!

  • We had a fabulous time with Tom and Carol - they are the perfect hosts! They gave us advice, included us in evening meals on occasions and were kind enough to share their scrumptious wine with us now and again! We would recommend the location to anyone who wants to explore Sydney and for the variety of bars and restaurants on King Street. Tom and Carol's place is handy for the train station and for the shopping centre. They are an interesting and friendly couple and a pleasure to be with - many thanks for sharing your house with us!!

  • Carol and Tom were the best hosts and made me feel very welcome! They had plenty of advice on things to do and see and where to get Thai take-away and how to get to anywhere in the city. The room was lovely and the location was perfect. I would definitely consider staying with Carol and Tom next time I'm in Sydney.

Tom and I love to travel and as we now have the opportunity, we plan to spend 3 months a year overseas. We are regular visitors to Africa as we work with a locally run AIDS clinic in Uganda and the proceeds from our B&B will go towards paying the school fees for children who have been affected by AIDS. We enjoy good food and good wine and we like guests to feel at home.
