“A Gem in Newtown”
Reviewed April 22, 2017 for a stay in March 2017

We stayed here for 6 days in March and enjoyed this wonderful base in Newtown. The house I very very comfortable and roomy. The kitchen is fully equipped and it was great to make your own meals. The beds are very comfortable. There is a nice patio and laundry facilities. We loved the neighbourhood. It's a short walk to the Newtown train station and you able to use transit to get everywhere. Shopping on King St is easy. Lovely coffee shop (Barmuda) at the end of the street. The host answers all your questions. A gem that we would go to again!

What can I say, stayed last year and again this February it was my sisters 60th and my son who lives in Newtown Australia was 40 years old, surprise for him and double celebration.
We had a great time the cottage is perfect for us. Everything you need is in the cottage, grocery store next to station, bakery A5 minute walk from cottage.
Easy access to Newtown station and buses for getting into city, opal cards are also a great way to pre-pay and your ready for bus, train and ferry services, just top up as required...great system.
Will definitely stay againwhen in Sydney.
Thank you

“Lovely cottage, close to town. Highly recommend!”

We stayed at the Newtown cottage for 5 nights. It was lovely, very clean and well equipped. The train station was a 5 minute walk, shops were around the corner with a park across the road. We really enjoyed our stay and would defintely stay there again.

“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!
