We stayed at the Studio for 3 nights in early February while we had a quick look at Sydney en route to New Zealand, and we felt blessed that we'd chosen Bet's for our stay.
Keith and Bet were wonderful hosts, taking so much time to provide helpful hints and tips on things we could do in our limited time in Sydney. It was immediately apparent that they take great pride and pleasure in doing their utmost to provide guests with a great stay.
The apartment consists of a bed-sitting room/kitchen area on the first floor and a shower room/toilet with washing machine and dryer on the ground floor. We found the bed to be super-comfortable with high quality bedlinen. Everything was immaculately clean and well-maintained. The wi-fi connection was fast and reliable. There are loads of leaflets and maps for helping guests plan their activities.
We thoroughly enjoyed being in Annandale - a lovely suburb only a short bus ride from central Sydney and a short walk from the local park and waterfront. The bus stop was a short walk from the property and there were good cafes and shops in Annandale village too. We also appreciated Bet and Keith's advice to try Newtown for eating out - an area we would never have found on our own.
We left feeling like we'd been staying with old friends, and if we're fortunate enough to return to Sydney in the future we just can't imagine staying anywhere else.
