I would recommend this rental to any family visiting Sydney. Owner was super, very accommodating. The house had everything you needed from being away from home. Close to all city transit.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed the property. Had plenty of space and the pool table was great for the kids to kill time. Had friends visit one night and plenty of space for entertaining. Local Lane Cove shopping is close with plenty of eating options.

The host is very friendly, and although he is on site, there was no issue with privacy. Stayed Jan 2016.

Simply Perfect - WYSIWYG!

The House is big and spacious with all the amenities required to make you feel right at home. 6 of us stayed there and it was so comfortable from the 2 verandas, large living room, ducted A/C, TV's including 1 in each bedroom, 10 foot snooker/pool table, large kitchen......the list goes on. Lovely suburb with local shops approx 4-5 mins drive away, Chatswood under 10 mins away (traffic pending) to large shopping malls and train into Sydney CBD. Herb was great, all too obliging with whatever from keeping the gardens immaculate through to stocking up the house with toilet paper, even just having a chat to. We loved our 2 weeks there and cannot recommend the house and Herb's hospitality more, thanks again.
