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

I booked the "apartment" (downstairs) and a room (upstairs) for myself and my Scottish cousins for about 9 days. The advertisement for this property looked great and being at Rose Bay would be handy for us. However, the "apartment" was more a self contained flat for uni students furnished by uni students. There were cobwebs and daddy longlegs in all... More

When I entered the bedroom it was over all nice, but on close inspection the doona cover was not clean and although the sheets appeared clean, they did not have that clean smell. While I was out someone used my bathroom. I think their granddaughter. Our hosts, Sylvia and Paul were pleasant, but not very warm and carried on their... More
