"Sydney Surburbs...........at its most very pleasant"
What a "gem" of a place here! Toni & Victor - a well-travelled couple themselves - have a lovely, spacious, welcoming comfortable home, whom they share with guests. I had the self-contained ground-floor flat (with fridge already stocked with my favourite foods for breakfast). This is a family home: "airy", & spacious - without any intrusion - and with an interesting, adventure back-garden. Instructions for everything - from the bus & ferry times to interesting local & national walks - are well documented. Books (some in Dutch) abound ....so the travelling guest can always be occupied with something, if they did not bring their own...( ..or even if they did).
When was the last time "Happy Birthday" was sung to you? This was a lovely touch, together with coffee and a chance to say "hello/goodbye".
I almost forgot: after travelling for 24-hrs one welcomes a comfortable bed!...I appreciated that. In fact, there was nothing Toni forgot! - even a "communications" notice message board..in the utility room.
If you don't mind reading time-tables and planning your journey (1-hr into the City, or 1/2-hr into Manly ...then another 1/2-hr by ferry into the City) - I slept, read or just observed - do try here: you do get a greater sense of a country/its citizens by staying in the suburbs.
What attracted me to this location was the caption " we like meeting people, and we would like to share our home": indeed they do - a very pleasant family that made my stay (6 nights in this part of Sydney) a very enjoyable experience.
