We are a gregarious couple who make the most of architecture, food and of course, travel.
We hope you enjoy our home and our city as much as we enjoy hosting you.

Perfect. Just perfect. We felt as welcome as old friends (despite John not even being there). The house is a perfect blend of relaxing, quite, central, and very very cool. Nestled among the quiet victorian terraces of Paddington, but just a few streets away from the best cafe's and resturants in Sydney. For an urban city pad, you couldn't beat it. John was frankly lucky to get the house back.
Response from John:
Hope to meet you next time!
Fantastic house, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Location is fantastic, close to the heart of the city but tucked in a quiet pedestrian area so no traffic noise. A very relaxed house to enjoy the Sydney weather. If you're fortunate to rent here, you will love it.
Beautiful home with full amenities, great location and the house is well laid out for families of 5-6. John is extremely helpful and friendly, especially for first time visitors to Sydney. We highly recommend John's home!
Unbeatable location. Fantastic little organic bakery with great coffee a few doors away was a highlight.
Communication with the owner was faultless.
We would stay again.
John's place is absolutely beautiful - a quintessential Sydney masterpiece. Our special Airbnb guests thoroughly enjoyed their stay!
We stayed at John's house for a weekend and were absolutely thrilled! The house is amazing, brilliantly designed, full of natural light with an incredible indoor/outdoor living area. The location couldn't be better, walking distance to great shops, cafes and restaurants. Four of us were extremely comfortable and thought it was great value - for the same price as a hotel with no living space we had a wonderful home to relax in. Finally John was a brilliant host, great communication and everything was very easy to find. Thanks so much we will be back!
John's house is amazing and a stunning architectural showcase. Would highly recommend staying there whilst in Sydney. Great location and everything you need at the house.
John was also a perfect host with great communication, local restaurant recommendations and signs throughout the house to make a short stay hassle free.
I'm so glad that John's place is listed here now - I have stayed there previously and now that it is listed on Airbnb, it makes it much easier to book and pay.
Where to start? He's an architect whose last house won the award for best new house in NSW. His own home is a real showpiece for sleek, clean design that is still warm and human. (Speaking of warm, little touches like the underfloor heating in the kitchen makes waking up in winter so much nicer!)
For the price of a good double hotel room (not even the price of a suite) two couples or a whole family can stay here. Dad stayed with us on a previous trip and was just amazed at the space.
It's in a quiet street in Padidngton, walking distance to shopping, restaurants, gallerys, clubs and the city itself. The actual street is amazing as there are no cars, so the neighbours have set up gardens and sit out at night having drinks and dinner together - not the sort of interaction you normally find in the middle of the city!
The bedroom - you will never want to leave. From the comfortable kingsize bed you watch a HUGE flat screen TV, DVDs and cable right there. I love the wall-to-wall, wall-to-floor drapes that close at the press of a button....
The living areas are palatial, and open out onto a landscaped private courtyard. You could easily entertain 20 guests in total luxury here - and the huge, sleek kitchen is a pleasure to cook in. There is a separate courtyard off the kitchen which leads to a secluded spa pool. Big enough for six and wonderful fun being in there while a Sydney storm rages overhead.
This is Sydney living at its best. a multi-million dollar home at an affordable price.
John and Bob were great guests, having a weekend away in their own home town. I have stayed at their house before when they were on holidays, so it was great to be able to help them out while they had some maintenance done. They looked after the apartment wonderfully, and even left a thank you bottle of champagne when they found out that it was my birthday a couple of days before. Just charming!
John will be always be wecomed :)
