“Too Good To Be True ! Stylish, Chic, Conveniently located we loved our stay in this highly organised stunning home. We walked up to Oxford Street to wine and dine. We drove up to Bondi in an instant. Five Ways is local precinct and offered every need be it artisan bread, boutique wine or vietnamese, Thai, Italian cuisine to choose. We loved it here and Jane was remarkable in her response to any queries. Thanks Jane and Kevin we hope we can stay again :) Kathy and Adam ”

About our home
We are keen to go to Copenhagen and Stockholm in early May 2017 and New York and Chicago around Oct/Nov 2018.
Our contemporary terrace house is located at the Five Ways in the heart of Paddington—a hub for cafes, restaurants, galleries and designer shops.
You can walk to most things. We are 10 minutes walk to Sydney Harbour and 15 minutes to Sydney's famous Centennial Park as well as fashionable Queen Street, Woollahra. We are close to the Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney Football Stadium and Fox Studios. We are on the bus route to the city (8 mins) and Bondi and Bronte Beaches (15 mins).
The main bedroom features a king sized bed which can be made into two single beds. The other bedroom has a queen sized bed. Both have balconies. There is air conditioning throughout the house. The lounge room also has a gas fire. We also have a 'mini gym' with bike, various weights, mat, ball, roller in the office.
The kitchen is fully equipped. You are welcome to use any food in the cupboard or fridge as well as any bathroom and laundry items.

“Jane communicated everything about the house perfectly; her home is in a great part of Sydney and suited me using public transport for a week of Art Gallery activities and the Sydney Writers Festival.”
“It was wonderful to stay at this house. There was nothing lacking and Jane and Kevin could not have been more welcoming and helpful.”
“It was a real pleasure to stay in this house, very spacious, well equiped and the location is perfect ( calm and near Sydney Center). Jane and Kevin are very welcome and nice people, I strongly recommend this place for a trip in Sydney.”
