“We had the most superb holiday staying in Sue and Andrew's beautifully restored terrace in the heart of Sydney, almost under the Harbour Bridge, and next to The Rocks... so characterful and loved that we could feel the sense of history all around us - this was the spot of the first Sydney settlers. We were seconds walk away from some of the oldest pubs in Sydney, with numerous fantastic restaurants on all sides. A few minutes walk from circular quay and the ferries, the Museum of Contemporary Art and Sydney Opera House, as well as the upgraded wharves and all they had to offer. Although in the heart of Sydney it is one of the quietest spots with virtually zero traffic. Sue was a great communicator from the word go so we managed to sort everything out easily even though we never met in person! An absolutely excellent place to be for the Sydney New Year fireworks! Thanks Sue and Andrew, a holiday experience we will not forget.”

“This is an amazing home, the location is unbeatable and makes for a very special experience of Sydney. We're so grateful to have been given the opportunity to stay at Sue's beautiful home. We had a wonderful time exploring all around the Rocks and we were able to walk everywhere. Seeing the harbour bridge outside the door and the Sydney Opera House minutes from the house just doesn't get old. Can't enthuse enough about how special this heritage home is, and how accommodating Sue and her family were. We need more than five stars to rate this swap!!”
