We really liked Annas' friendly emails before we arrived offering information regarding city travel options & directions to find our accommodation. Although once we arrived she was a sensitive host allowing us freedom to... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a lovely stay at Mum's House and thoroughly recommend it to anyone staying in Sydney. It was good to be out of the city centre and there are lots of trains from Flemington which get you to Circular Quay in about 30 minutes. The house itself was spotlessly clean with everything we needed. All the appliances are modern... more

How to get there
Airport: Mascot: 9.9 mi
Railway: Flemington: 0.5 mi
Ferry: Olympic Park Ferry Wharf: 5.0 mi
If there is only 1 guest, or even 2, and you can handle your luggage on the 30-steps-up and 30-steps-down station at Flemington, you can get a train directly from the Airport to that station. Still saving money (by not taking a taxi all the way - $60 - $65) but with too much luggage to handle all those steps, disembark at Strathfield, the stop before Flemington. There are lifts and ramps there, and you can easily get a taxi for about $12-$14. Remember that the train fare between the Airport and Flemington, $17.80, includes a $12.60 station access fee (not applicable at any other station). Note that the train to Strathfield is 60c less.

Landlady can help you with a lower-priced taxi for your return journey to the Airport. Cost is $50 - $55, depending on whether it's the Domestic o...
