"LIVE LIKE A LOCAL" in Sydney
There is no other accommodation so close to everything in the real Sydney with the same advantages - and most places of interest are within walking distance, or on the FREE green bus - and the local beaches are just a bus ride away. We offer FREE WiFi, FREE cleaning service, air conditioning in the bedrooms and most importantly we can lend you a mobile phone with FREE local calls to landlines and mobiles within Australia for the duration of your stay. How does that sound? There is one downside - we cannot get TV reception in this home, so if you are addicted to the TV, please don't book - however, we do have a large selection of DVDs which you can view in the family room or on your laptop in the comfort of your room.
"Our B&B is a French Provincial-inspired traditional terrace on three and a half levels situated just south of Hyde Park and in walking distance of Central Railway Station. The home is an eclectic mix of old and new, modern and antique, light and shade. We offer a large and luxurious bathroom with separate shower recess, an open and airy kitchen where you are free to make tea and coffee from a range of teas - including organic - a lovely courtyard to relax in, and the most peaceful and calm oasis close to the CBD that you could wish for.
We are close to Hyde Park, Centre Point Tower, the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, all theatres, museums, art galleries, St Mary's Cathedral, Fox Studios, Sydney Cricket Ground, swimming pools and the Domain.
There is an abundance of cafes, restaurants and coffee shops, and you can shop till you drop in the City, Darling Harbour, The Rocks and famous Oxford Street. Just a two minute walk from the front door you will find a stop for the 555 Bus. This CBD shuttle will get you around the City for shopping, business or to connect with other transport.
It's frequent and it's FREE and operates every 10 minutes in both directions between 10 am and 3.30pm on weekdays (until 9pm on Thursday nights) and between 10 am and 6pm on weekends. We have many repeat guests who remark on the comfort and convenience they experience whilst staying here.
Christmas and New Year rates apply.
Review from repeat guests from New York
"This is a lovely place to stay, and we would highly recommend it! The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and it is very well located, on a nice quiet street with easy access to CBD. We walked everywhere, and there are nice cafes and restaurants nearby. The host, Leonie was wonderful and very helpful. There is wi-fi internet that works very well. We stayed in various hotels in Sydney as well, but this was by far the nicest, because it was like staying in someone's home. You will not regret booking here!" A and K, NYC
Leonie is one of a kind. She makes you feel right at home - chatting over tasty green tea and coffee. Ask her anything about the neighbourhood and she'll point you in the right direction.
Warm regards, Grant S, Singapore.

I booked this room for my parents visiting Sydney for a week and am so glad I did. Leonie was a wonderful host and made my parents feel so comfortable. I would definitely recommend staying in her beautiful home in a perfect Surry Hills location.

We had a beautiful stay at Live like a Local. The room was cosy and our host was very hospitable. We would definately visit again both for the comfort of a home away from home and the great convenience of the locality to central Sydney. Our thanks.

Leonie was the best host! She was so accommodating and friendly, and totally made us feel right at home. We were too exhausted the first night to walk around the chic neighborhood, but the next day we did have dinner at one of the best modern thai restaurants in Surry Hills. The best thing to come home to was the turned down bed, and chocolate bars for a night cap! I highly recommend Leonie's place for a high-touch experience! :)
