Enjoyed our stay here- 5 minute walk to train station was the best feature. Sarina was great at facilitating our needs and keeping in contact. Was disappointed with the wi-fi quality but otherwise everything was great.
We booked this tiny room to have space for a teenager while the rest of the family stayed in the house (separate listing) the room has outdoor access to a shower and toilet (indoor) and the courtyard. Ideal for a solo traveller who just needs a bed and a loo.
This is a very comfortable home, a little oasis right on the edge of the city. Sarina & Eddy left us some basic starters and access to everything we could possibly need. For supplies, Marrickville Metro shopping centre is an easy walk away. Great coffee and breakfast at the Velvet Garage, then a short stroll down the stunning Graffiti lined alleys to the train or 422 bus (via Newtown) into the city. The semi-industrial, yet at times leafy neighbourhood is unbelievably quiet once the planes stop at 10.30 and the bed is super-comfy if you can tear yourself away from King Street's evening activity to sleep. We also booked the tiny single studio (listed separately) which was spot-on for our eldest teen to have a bit of private space. After busy days it was a great pleasure to relax in the lush frangipani-shaded courtyard while the excellent laundry machines did their thing. We had come to Sydney to spend time with family in nearby Marrickville and this turned out to be the perfect location - especially with hosts that are so relaxed about accommodating children.
Hi Lisa, Thanks it was a pleasure to host you. Hope you enjoyed NYE .
Sarina's terrace is situated near 422 bus stop. So it is easy to go to Newtown or city. We enjoyed breakfast at some good cafe in Newtown several days. Marrickville Metro Shopping Centre is about 15 minutes walk from the terrace. St Peters rail station is about 8 minutes walk. Each room is clean and tidy. Sarina's sister arranged our check in. We used taxi from and to international airport. It cost $25. We were satisfy with staying Sarina's terrace very much!
We stayed here for 8 nights and felt completely at home in this gorgeous house. Sarina and her family were incredibly helpful about the house and the area. The location is great, only a few minutes walk to both St Peters and Newtown train stations, affordable restaurants on King Street and a big supermarket in Marrickville. All this for about the same price as a double room in a Potts Point hostel, staying here is a no-brainer. Even the washing machine plays a little song when it's done, so cute! I would definitely stay again if I'm in Sydney again.
VERY GOOD GUEST! ORGANIZED, CLEAN, VERY NICE PERSON!
I RECOMMEND TO ALL HOST. THANKS SARINA AND I WILL BE HAPPY TO HOST YOU ALWAYS YOU WANT!
