We can not say enough about how great Helen and her home are. We extended our stay with her for a month total. It is everything you could hope for in a place.
Helen's home is a wonderful place in the perfect location. Sitting outside on the deck watching parrots in the trees and listening to the creek running below you would never believe you are just minutes away from the largest shopping mall in the Newcastle area. Just a couple minutes away is the mall with tons of restaurants, movies, grocery stores, and a main bus hub to get anywhere. The down hill walk from the bus station to her house allows you to see beautiful mountains in the distance that are great for a sunset walk. The breakfast provided is outstanding, and her hospitality is amazing. We spent 3 weeks with Helen, and were happy to meet her friends and family. She was very helpful with us getting use to the area and we enjoyed it so much we extended our stay.
Thank you both for being such great guests. Loved meeting you. Clare is the one opposite the theatre. All the best.
Wow! Helen has created an idyllic spot for people to get away from the fast pace of everyday life! Helen welcomed me with open arms & allowed me the freedom of her home for 2days. I relaxed so much I found it hard to leave. Everything was exactly as described & more! Helen left me an array of fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereals, toast & condiments for breakfast. Thank you for helping me to start my day well! The bed was very comfortable & I really loved waking to the sound of the running creek & kookaburras! The hot showers were greatly appreciated! I got so much study done. The sitting room was awesome I was able to spread my books out without hassling anyone, lounge was very comfortable for an afternoon nanna nap! I will definitely book in again. An awesome, peaceful & friendly home away from home! Awesome!
Thanks, Jen, you are a gem.
A hidden gem and a very welcoming host. Excellent location close to a major shopping complex. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Helen.
Helen provided a warm welcome to her special abode - an urban rainforest getaway indeed! There is a transport hub and major shopping centre/cinema moments away although you wouldn't notice from the home, which is peacefully tucked away. Also nearby is part of the Great North Walk, a community swimming pool, etc. Helen is a generous and warm personality - and an amazing cook - who assisted in every way she could. I hope to stay again.
Helen has a lovely country like escape in the city, and she shares it with genuine warmth and grace. Thanks so much Helen for your hospitality and also for the casual relaxed space you offered us to decompress from hours on the road :)
We'll definatly be back if we are passing through and need a sanctuary!
Thanks, Angie.....I was so happy that you both made it safely to the "sanctuary" and were able to get a good night`s rest.
My friend and I had a great time at Helen's place! Lazy mornings spent on the terrace with magazines and breakfast were just what we needed. Her house is so conveniently located close to lovely beaches (Dudley & Redhead) and Lake Macquarie. We also visited Hunter Valley for a day trip which wasn't too far away either. Helen was a welcoming, helpful and energising host & I would recommend staying with her.
Wij werden door Helen hartelijk ontvangen. Het huis ligt heel centraal en biedt veel mogelijkheden voor uitstapjes in de omgeving en gaf ons meteen een thuisgevoel. We hebben genoten van de ruimte en het licht.
Zij vertelde ons over het grote winkelcentrum om de hoek en gaf ons goede tips over de omgeving.
We hebben 's avonds heerlijk op het balkon gezeten en daar genoten van de voor ons heel bijzondere natuurgeluiden. We hebben leuke gesprekken met Helen gevoerd over kunst , keramiek en de door ons en haar gemaakte reizen.
Het ontbijt was geweldig in alle opzichten. Veel vers fruit, muesli en yoghurt. Maar brood en beleg was er ook in overvloed!
Kortom, we hebben het fantastisch bij de zeer gastvrije Helen gehad. Echt een aanrader, deze airbnb!
I so wish I could read Dutch! Hoping it's good.....
We had the most wonderful time at Helen's, even though it was just for one night it made the perfect rest spot on the way down the coast. Helen was very friendly and welcoming, and put out a delicious breakfast spread! Just wish we could have stayed longer!
Thanks, Sarah and Richard so nice to meet you....Happy New Year!
Helen is a lovely lady with a lovely house in a great location
Have no reservations recommending her
A really great experience
Close to shopping and food and the highway to go to the beach
We really enjoyed our stay
Helen is a lovely lady. She stayed for one evening so we didn't see that much of her but she was an absolute delight. I'd highly recommend Helen to any host. She left the house incredibly clean and I felt very comfortable having her stay.
Helen's stay was a short one but memorable. She is a considerate, friendly, vibrant, outgoing lady who made herself at home and helped tidy and clean up. I enjoyed our interesting chats. She is also a host in Newcastle (North of Sydney) so anyone going to stay up there please drop her a message and book with her. It was an absolute pleasure to meet and host her. She will always be welcome here.
Thanks Al, I loved your place and being able to meet you, I will certainly be her for you and also would stay with you again and recommend you to all .all the bestest, Hi to Matt, cheers, Hel
I have known Helen for over 20 years. I have house sat for Helen and know her as a friend. Helen is one of the nicest, most hospitable people you would be lucky to meet. Her love of cooking, gardening, music, art , animals and travel make her a wonderful conversationalist, host and companion. Helen is also organized, neat and energetic. Our mutual love of travel makes for scintillating conversation. Helen is thoughtful, gregarious and a pleasure to be with.
