I stayed with my family at Syl's in January when I had to come up to Sydney from Melbourne to sit 3 exams (totalling 7 hours) on the one day in nearby Double Bay. So I really wanted somewhere I could feel calm and relaxed the day before. We felt privileged to be welcomed into Sylvia's beautiful home, and our... More

Our stay in Sydney was embellished by the fantastic care and kindness offered by Sylv and Paul.Nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel like part of the family throughout. A beautiful home with beautiful people, perfectly situated for access to the City and further afield. Thank you Sylvia and Paul. Alf, Sheila, Mike and Helen.

As a family we enjoyed the home and warm hospitality from Sylvia and family. Very comfortable and easy access to Bondi Beach and attractions. Will surely stay at Syl's Sydney Homestay on our next visit to Sydney.

I needed a single night's accommodation for an event in Rose Bay and came across Syl's homestay. I wasn't staying there much so the price was perfect but I was not ready for what I got. Like others, I was warmly greeted by Syl after the redeye from WA and offered breakfast. After a short tour I prepared for my... More

Rooms were claen and tidy,a fan came in handy as it was fairly humid outside. Breakfast was a leisurely affair with tea on... More

We needed a place to stay with friends for a family wedding and staying at Syl's proved to be perfect for us and our group. Syl and her family were very warm and welcoming and went out of their way to help us when we needed it and left us alone when we were getting on with enjoying ourselves. We... More

I travel to Sydney several times a year and have stayed in many parts of the city. To be half way between Rose Bay and Bondi in a leafy gorgeous neighborhood with shoppes and restaurants two blocks away is ideal. I ride the ferries everywhere each day and then return to the welcoming friendly couple Syl and Paul's charming expansive... More
