“We had the pleasure of spending a week at Emily & Miles home in January 2017. We had such a fantastic time in the Harbourside city we could not have asked for more. Their home is very, very comfortable perfect for any family very easy access to all Sydney has to offer. We were out sightseeing everyday and it was wonderful knowing we would arrive home each night to such a beautiful house. Emily was kind enough to leave us suggestions on what to do, where to eat & how best to get about, all these things make your stay all that more enjoyable & is very much appreciated. All in all 5 star swap! ”
