Charlotte was an excellent host! She immediately made us feel welcome and had the place organised very nicely. She made some great suggestions for local eating spots (the indian was particularly tasty) and was a great introduction to the area.
She also offered us the large bathroom as we were just a couple staying which was great. Would definitely stay again and really enjoyed our time in Lilyfield!
The house is beautiful and in a great location, close to public transport and lots of shops. Charlotte made us feel very welcome and gave us some tips about the area.
Lovely stay at Lilyfield with extra special touches that made a difference. It was a cold night and the warm heating was much appreciated. Beds were very comfortable, bathrooms great and the continental breakfast supplies well considered. We could have easily spent more than a night at this guest house. Front steps were steep and were difficult for my elderly mother to ascend and descend but once in the home she was fine. We appreciated the help getting our suitcases back down the stairs when we departed.
Charlotte was a gracious host, she took the time to meet us personally and give us advice about what we could do on our stay. The house was spotless, everything was thought of and it was comfortably warm. The house was located near Balmain, which is defiantly worth a visit (nice cafes and shops). Thank you for our lovely stay!
We had a wonderful stay at the Lilyfield Guesthouse, with Charlotte as our host. She was very welcoming and ensured we had all the comforts of home. The house is close to the Light Rail for a short trip to the city and also supermarket for anything you may need. We would definitely stay again! Thank you Charlotte for making our 'Girl's week' memorable, we had a lovely time! :)
Charlotte made you feel welcome form the first moment you walked into this lovely cottage. Great atmosphere, well decorated and everything you need for a great stay.
We had a lovely stay in Lilyfield. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable for our family. It is located in a safe and quiet area and the proximity to the city was a great benefit with easy access to buses and the light rail. We would hesitate to stay here again in the future.

About the Host, Charlotte
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.
