Charlotte's Lilyfield Guest House was an accurate depiction of its listing photos. Beautifully presented with charming details throughout. I initially booked this property for a photoshoot/short film and it delivered on all levels for the project. Nestled in a quiet street, it was a haven to kick-back after a long day of shooting. The first master bedroom is super comfortable and loving the easy-to-open shutter windows which allowed a fresh breeze to flow throughout the house. A great retreat whether you're a local or traveller from abroad.
My parents were very happy with the stay at your accommodation! Thanks for making their stay a pleasurable one!
Charlotte was a fabulous host who made us feel very welcome. The guest house is renovated well, with some modern amenities and is very comfortable. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again someday.
It was nice to meet Charlotte again and our private dining room was well stocked for breakfast. However we struck very hot weather and it was difficult to keep our room cool enough, I think Charlotte will consider putting air conditioning in the bedrooms in the future. We look forward to staying with her again, Lilyfield is a charming place to explore.
Thanks Sally, it was a pleasure to host you again. You did hit some extremely hot and humid weather. I have now purchased some portable a/c units for the bedrooms to get through this heatwave. I am looking into a ducted system to be installed. I hope you have an enjoyable last few weeks of your trip.
너무 좋은 경험이었습니다. 처음 예약하고 가는 여행이어서 걱정을 많이 했는데 작은 것 하나까지 신경 많이 써주시고 중간중간 일정 체크 해주시고...
다른 분께도 꼭 추천하고 싶습니다. 영어를 잘하는 편이 아니어서 호스트가 좀 불편하셨을거예요. 그래도 즐겁고 행복한 여행하고 왔어요. 동네도 안전하고 조용하고 시내와 교통도 편리하고 가까운 공원도 있고 식사준비도 넉넉히 해주시고 무엇하나 빠질게 없네요. 아이들도 좋아했습니다. 거듭 감사드립니다.
A gorgeous house in Lilyfield, close to the city and many shops. I would definitely stay at the house again on another trip to Sydney.
It has been a sweet experience to stay in Charlotte's lovely house. The house has a great location, with easy transportation, short distance to city, ans peaceful neighborhood. The house it self is adorable, having sweet decarations, being a cozy home for travelers. Charlotte is very nice, considerable and helpful. Feel very lucky and happy to choose here as the last stop during my travel in Australia. Thanks!

I love living in Lilyfield with my beautiful family. Just 5mins to Sydney city with enough space for the kids, close to the bay, fabulous pubs and restaurants, weekend markets and wonderful shops.
I am now hosting two funky studios on Bondi Beach as well which is so exciting. It is such a vibrant area of Sydney which makes for a great holiday!
I look forward to taking guests through all the amazing things the innerwest, eastern suburbs and greater Sydney has to offer and then leaving them to explore, enjoy and relax.
