Our light-filled house is spacious, filled with art and books, with views over Mort Bay, where ferries and tug boats come and go all day long.It is a short walk to Darling Street where you will find interesting shops and great restaurants. It is a 5 minute walk to the ferry or bus to take you into the centre of Sydney.

The space

Our place is great for anyone needing easy access to the city, for sightseeing or business, for business people, for families, for a couple of couples. It is close to a park, a playground, waterside walks and as it is on a steep hill off a cul de sac, there is no through traffic so very quiet at night.

Interaction with guests

We will usually be around whilst you are staying, we are in and out of the house all day. I may not answer my mobile immediately as I could be out hiking or on my yoga mat!

Other things to note

Our dog, Rusty, is usually around unless we are out walking him.

Fiona's place was absolutely perfect. Beautiful, clean, and extremely close to everything. Not only this but Fiona was very kind and even offered us travel advice for our road trip into the Blue Mountains. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a place in Sydney stays with Fiona!

Hi CJ, thank you for your lovely words. I wish you could have stayed longer too! It would have been nice to have had a chance to talk more. You are welcome back when you come back on another Aussie adventure. Happy travels.

Fiona's stunningly beautiful home was exactly as described. It was close to the dining delights of Balmain and an easy trip to the city from the ferry wharf. Fiona was very friendly and most helpful. Our only disappointment was that our stay was too brief.

This guest booked 4 days before arrival. Unfortunately one of our family friends who was already staying with us had to change their plans. I would not normally cancel at such short notice as I know how horrible it is to do that.

This is a privilege to share a sensational residential house with its family in a part of Sydney that is mellow and stunning all at the same time. Thank you Fiona for opening your home to all of us travellers. What a welcome delight! *travellers tip; this house is not suited for the infirmed or physically handicapped. Many steps, steep incline and no direct and easy access to the front door.

Thanks for your kind words, Nicole. We enjoyed having you all to stay. I appreciate your comments about the access - it isn't easy down the steps, going through the park does provide an alternative and flat access, though longer. Hope Cormack's ankle makes a quick recovery.

Fiona's house is amazing! The beds were so comfy! Location was beautiful and quiet, but prepare for your legs to get a workout, this suburb has some intense hills. Rusty is one of the sweetest dogs we have ever met, and a real bonus to this house. And right near the bus and the ferry is so convenient.

Hi Emma, I am so glad you and your friends enjoyed your stay in our house. I am sorry that I didn't get to meet you but I am sure you enjoyed being in Sydney. And yes, Balmain is very hilly! Best wishes, Fiona

Fiona's place is amazing ! I loved the paintings on the wall, the pool and the view from the kitchen !! I felt like a privileged sydneysider staying there ;-) It's great to be exploring Sydney and coming back every night to her house. Balmain neighbourhood is great also if you don't want the rush from Sydney's downtown and yet so close with the ferry. Also make sure you have a pizza at Gigi's on darling street, there're marvellous !

Hi Sammuel, I am so glad they you and your family enjoyed your stay in Balmain - it is one of the best kept secrets of Sydney, I think! I am sorry that I didn't get to meet you but am happy that it sounds like you had a great time. Best wishes, Fiona

Le quarter De Balmain east vaut vraiment le détour , calme et pittoresque. La maison est incroyable avec vue sur la baie de Sydney les chambres sont Grandes confortables et parfaitement équipées. Acces a la cuisine, possibilité de faire la lessive .... parfait ! L accès au circular quai se fait rapidement grâce au ferry boat accessible à moins de 10 min à pied. Nous avons passé un excellent sejour avec nos deux filles. Je recommande très vivement!
