Our first experience with Gary let us know that he goes above and beyond what anyone can expect. It was like staying with family or friends--he picked us up from the cruise ship, took us to get cash at an ATM, then to buy the week transportation passes, then dropped us off at the hotel he had recommended because he did not have a room for us for the first night. The next morning he picked us up at the hotel and brought us to the beautiful Rozelle room--AND did our laundry--come to think of it, family and friends might not even be so accommodating! What everyone else has said is perfectly true about the breakfast, accommodations, etc. We loved Sydney, but enjoyed not staying in the noisy center city, walking around Glebe, exploring small local restaurants and food stores. The flowers in the house from the local shops were breathtaking. Eating outside in December was so much fun for us. But the best part is why I like to stay in BnBs--the stimulating, informative conversations every day at breakfast were so much fun. We thoroughly enjoyed comparing perspectives from different places we had all lived. Thank you, Gary and Julie!
