Exactly what we needed over the Christmas/New Year's period, for couple and 2 adult 'children', each with their own rooms. Easy access to excellent Sydney bus lines, and then on to Ferries etc. Paddington is lovely area of Sydney in which to stay- and nearby Centennial Park is a wonderful bonus. Arrival and leaving well organized. Host and owner terrific for helpful and quick communication. Highly recommend.
