Come stay with us on the Paramatta River!
We have a bedroom with double bed and built in wardrobe in a three bedroom apartment in Meadowbank, on the Parramatta River. The large main bathroom is shared with one other person (Only if the second bedroom has a guest. If not, the bathroom is all yours!) and has both a spacious glass shower and a bath. Meadowbank is approximately 15km from inner Sydney and getting here is easy with the ferry, bus stops and train station all within 2 minutes walk (only 25 minutes to the city on the train).
Enjoy a glass of wine on one of two balconies off the lounge. Either cook in the fully equipped kitchen (with gas stove) or take advantage of the restaurants nearby, including Italian, Chinese, Japanese, seafood and Lebanese, all within easy walking distance.

After having travelled around the world in 2012, we are two Kiwi's who have come to Sydney for a fresh start in a brand new city. We are excited to offer accommodation to other travellers and pass on the hospitality we received on our travels.
Sydney is a great city, full of life and fun things to do. We chose Meadowbank because of the easy transport options available, the close proximity to the water and the convenient location. We love that our apartment is located to catch all day sun, and gets a wonderful cooling breeze coming off the river, a godsend when Sydney really puts on the weather! We hope that you will find our apartment as sunny and comfortable as we do.
We currently have two rooms available of similar size and dimensions. If this room is not available for the dates that you need, please take a look at our other room. Also if you are interested in booking both rooms, get in contact with us directly to discuss prices and arrangements. We are happy to answer any questions or queries you may have before or after you book.

I had a very good stay with Nick and Mahina. It was a comfortable room and they are quite friendly. The flexible check-in and check-out times were also appreciated. I'd definitely recommend a stay here.
Always a great spot to rest up and the location gets much better when I can walk to the train & ferry...back soon
We totally enjoyed our stay with Nick and Mahina. They were very hospitable and friendly. The apartment is very cosy and tastefully furnished I must say. Everything fits in well. The distant near the public transport, the view of the river and ferry port makes it easy for commuting. My friends and I felt at home throughout our trip. Would totally recommend to stay here for your vacay in Sydney.
We enjoyed our stay immensely. The location was ideal for us, and the facilities were spacious and airy with lovely high ceilings and very close to supermarkets, train and ferry. Nick and Mahina are attentive and caring hosts while also allowing space and privacy for their guests. It was a very easy and relaxed place to stay at - would definitely recommend.
Thank you Nick and Mahina for a warm and welcoming stay! Your thoughtfulness and the generous manner in which you shared local and transport information was so valued as a newcomber to Sydney with a busy schedule
Booking with Nick and Mahina was one of the best decisions I have ever made. They are two of the most wonderful people you will ever meet. Not only are they incredibly nice and friendly, but they went above and beyond to make sure I felt comfortable and at home in their home. Being a young man just out of school in a foreign country is not an easy thing to do. You find yourself being very lonely and confused. Nick and Mahina did everything they could to ease the transition and turn me into an experienced Sydneysider. They helped me get a mobile, navigate the complicated public transport, and even helped to take care of me when I became ill. They gave me as much privacy as I needed and offered to involve me in their everyday activities. I will always remember all the dinner discussions we had, the intense games of Halo, and gouging ourselves with all you can eat pizza. Nick and Mahina are two friends I hope to keep throughout my time in Australia and throughout the rest of my life.
Beyond the unrivaled character of my hosts their apartment was incredible. Upon arrival I felt like I was stepping into a post-modern dream. The apartment was impeccably clean and filled with incredibly attractive and modern furniture. Their living room is flanked by two balconies which offer breathtaking views of the Paramatta River. The kitchen features brand new appliances and you have the freedom to make any dish you desire. (Unless you ask Mahina to make you one of her speciality dishes which I highly recommend!) There are numerous shops just a 2 minute walk from the apartment including two different grocers, a chemist, and a natural foods market. There is also a delicious Italian restaurant with daily deals the same distance away.
The bathroom maintained the same level of cleanliness and comfort that the rest of the apartment did. The stand up glass shower has perfect water pressure and there is a large bath tub to be utilized if you wish. Finally, the bedroom. A very comfortable queen size mattress ,with very attractive bedding matching the photos on the wall, was centered in the room. The closet provided plenty of space to hold the many articles of clothing I brought. Although the apartment is on the corner of Bay Drive I never once heard the sounds of cars.
Nick and Mahina did more than provide me with accommodation. They provided me with a home and a family. Two things that I will be eternally greatful for. If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to stay with Nick and Mahina I highly recommend you seize that opportunity.
