We booked the first 3 nights of our honeymoon at Tara after reading all the reviews on this site. We had never traveled so far from home, never stayed at a bed and breakfast- so it was a lot to take it!
From the moment we were picked up at the air port, I felt welcome. Julian and Brom treated us like we were family! After flying from the US, we got to the house just in time for breakfast. After having the first of many delicious, HUGE meals, we were given maps and an orientation of the city. It was fantastic! The map was highlighted and she told us how and where and which transportation pass we should get based on our stay.
Just like many of the other reviewers, we didn't even have to worry about lunch! Each morning we ate so much that we didn't feel the need to eat again until dinner. Even after walking around the city all day!
I loved the district the house is located. So many great places to visit and eat at. Super easy to get to downtown as well.
Breakfast each morning was MORE then enough. Everything was so fresh! My husband is still trying to find a cereal to match what he ate there to something here in the US. The other guests were fantastic as well. We chatted with couples from Germany, Finland, and Sweden. It was great to hear what others had done and what their plans for the day were.
If/when we go back to Sydney, Tara Guest House will be our first choice for lodging for sure!
