You will have a lovely sunny room in a grand old house in an established residential neighbourhood. This is a great base for you to see all the sights of Sydney! Minutes to the city with both bus and train lines a short walk away. Perfect for business travellers as the North Sydney business district is a few minutes walk from our house.

The space

We have a lovely 5 bedroom 1920's two-storey house that we love to share with friends and family from across the world. Your room is upstairs and has a double bed with 100% cotton sheets and ample space to leave your belongings. There is also a small table and 2 chairs in the room.
We live in a lovely quiet residential neighbourhood filled with grand old houses, tree-lines streets and close to lovely walking trails around Balls Head national parkland. There is a local pub across the road and shops, supermarkets, restaurants and the bus and train station are all just a few minutes away.

Guest access

You will have access to Wi-Fi, kitchen with cooking utensils, Gaggia coffee maker (makes great coffee) and huge sundrenched back yard. We also have 2 mountain bikes (his & hers) if you would like to see the city by bicycle.

We are happy to leave you alone or you are welcome to join us for dinner any evening.

Karin's place is located in a lovely neighbourhood, very close to busses and trains which makes it a wonderful base to explore Sydney. The house is clean, tidy and well kept. The bathroom is large and the shower water pressure is fantastic. I found the room to be the perfect size for a solo traveller, the bed is nice and comfy and it was quiet and peaceful especially at night.

The accomodation is nice, but just a little bit too quiet :) I hardly saw anyone in the house. Could be a good thing if that is what you are after. Close to public transport and in a nice part of Sydney.

Very much enjoyed my stay in Waverton. A nice alternative to the city with frequent buses only meters away.

This is the ideal location for any person looking to explore the Sydney area. Karin and her husband live a beautiful house on a quiet street close to bus lines and train stations. You are also 5-10 minutes by foot from restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery stores. Their house is very clean , super quiet and with great Wifi. The best part though is the warm welcoming feeling Karin and her husband exude throughout their home. Upon meeting them I was immediately placed at ease and by the time I left I felt like we had known each other for a long time.
