Double Room in North Shore Family Home

Lovely house and great company. Gives you your privacy but always happy to help and up for a chat, whether it be helping you to know where to go and what to see, or a friendly debate on a variety of topics over a nice meal :). Pleasure staying here and hope to return later on in our trip.

Double Room in North Shore Family Home

Donny is a very friendly host. The house is close to Gordon Station which makes it easy to go into the city of Sydney and around.
The double bedroom is a walk through room. My friend and I shared another room which was much smaller but okay, too.
The area is nice and quiet.
Donny and his parents were very friendly and helpful all the time.
