“Great location for visiting family in the area”
Reviewed April 7, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Lovely federation cottage in Newtown a lively vibrant town close to all amenities and travel services.
The cottage had everything you could need for your home away from home. Clean and good size for all our holiday requirements.
Railway station and bus services 10 minute walk away, get an opal card at newsagents and railway stations and top up makes travelling into city approx 15 minutes and ferry trips really easy.
We will definitely be booking this accomodation for our next visit.

“Seclusion in the midst of excitement.”
Reviewed February 7, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We stayed with another couple who had a dog. It was perfect for the dog because there was a park with off leash area just across the road. It was a quiet street as well with parking available one one side without permit. The two bedrooms were a nice size with comfortable beds. The kitchen and dining/lounge area was spacious with comfortable and stylish couches. The aircon worked very well with a separate system for the bedroom area. There was tea, coffee and various bits available in the kitchen. The small courtyard was good as an outside area for pets. There was access to internet provided. We enjoyed visiting the eateries on King street which was a five minute walk away. Sydney Uni was also close being a 15 minute walk.

“lovely cottage in great location”
Reviewed November 25, 2015 for a stay in December 2014

A really nice, welcoming place to stay, with a small garden at the back. Well maintained, close to the train station so easy to travel to central Sydney, and opposite a park with a playground if you have young ones.
Loads of great shops and places to eat in Newtown - a fab location to recover from our jet lag!

“Everything you could want”
Reviewed April 9, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Fantastic location close to a wonderful shopping district with restaurants, book shops and vintage clothing stores along with a multitude of other shops. There are bus stops and a train station just around the corner, and a beautiful big park just across the road. The house is very well appointed with anything you might need, from cooking oil and vegemite, to mountains of CDs to suit all tastes. The beds are comfortable, the bathroom is fresh and modern and the property is quiet at night. It's a little pricey, but worth every penny.

This property was in very convenient location in a vibrant area. It only took a short walk to get to the train station and there are numerous eateries nearby. The accommodation itself was very comfortable for a family with young children. Robyn was very accommodating and easy to deal with, responding to our enquiries very promptly. Thanks Robyn for contributing to a wonderful family holiday!

This holiday opened new adventures and treasures for us.
The cottage was very comfortable and well set up.
The location proved a bonus with Newtown and Enmore (easy walking distances) holding some of Sydney's best kept secrets and this cottage is in just the best location to experience those secrets.
It is also so close to transport that one can park and leave for a week yet get anywhere in Sydney easily.
We had our little dog with us and the dog friendly park across the road made it a magical experience for her and us with her. Just fantastic.
Terrific experience.
