Danielle is a very nice and well prepared hostess of her little warm and tidy house. This is the first time of my homestay experience and I thought I would need to bring my own self-cleaning stuff e.g. bathing towel etc. But all I need is my own toothbrush. The room is absolutely cosy and tidy. She even have placed a bunch of flower in my room! Everyday we had a nice and warm chat with each other and she is just patient and willing to listen to everything I throw out after a stressful working day. The house is located in a very quite street and my dreams were never interrupted by any street noise because there was none. the nearest train station is around 15 minutes walking and if I choose driving to it I can easily find a free on-street parking place near the station and save me 10 minutes for walking. And it only took me another 15 to 20 minutes to the CBD on the train. The only trick I have is to open the folding door of the bedroom, the sliding nail sometimes does not fit in the track very well and could cause a bit noise for half a second. But it really does not matter to me and Danielle is going to have it fixed soon.
I recommend it to everyone and definitely I will book it for my next trip to Sydney in July.
