'Sydney B&B' has proven to be an ideal base for overseas visitors to Sydney and Australia. We offer one (or two) comfortable, air-conditioned bedrooms, each with its own private bathroom. The bedrooms are in our home so guests can expect a safe, friendly, home away from home atmosphere. Because it is our home they also have the opportunity to relax and interact with an Australian couple and receive on site advice and support. Our home is located in Liberty Grove, a resort style suburb 12 km from the centre of Sydney. Liberty Grove is adjacent to Sydney Olympic Park and beautiful Bicentennial Park. It is only a 6 minute walk from a suburban train line that provides easy and frequent access to the whole of Sydney, day and night. Our nominal room rate AU$180 per room, per night.

It is only a 6 minute walk from a suburban train line that provides easy and frequent access to the whole of Sydney, day and night. Our nominal room rate AU$180 per room, per night. However we know this is not exactly what will be displayed on this portal because of movements in the AU$ exchange rate, and because a variable commission is charged by the platform. Over the Xmas/New Year period (December 22-January 6) the rate per room rises to AU$200 per room, per night. This charge includes a daily breakfast and a free airport pickup when guests arrive in the country. If a pick up is not required then an airport drop-off can be substituted. There is a minimum 3 night stay. Because the property is not in the centre of the city, it will probably appeal most to people who want easy access to all of Sydney's attractions, but who also want a more spacious, relaxed environment when they are not sight-seeing. You can learn what previous guests have enjoyed most about the location and the environment by reading their reviews posted on this listing. Guests are welcome to use our household facilities (laundry, lounge with TV etc). Free wi-fi and spare computers and a printer are available if required. There are also three bicycles that can be used to commute locally or explore some of the 35 km of bike tracks in the adjacent parks. Liberty Grove is a resort style community with its own tennis and basketball courts, swimming pools, and gymnasium. The property is only a short walk from Rhodes Shopping Centre which hosts several of Australia's major retailers, an IKEA super store, and over a hundred specialty shops. Rhodes also has many café's and restaurants, plus an 8-cinema complex. A Direct Factory Outlet centre with over 120 specialty retail stores is only 2 minutes drive from Liberty Grove. Your hosts are Barry and Bev West. We are an active couple in our mid 60’s. We started hosting mainly overseas visitors when we retired in 2012. Since then we have enjoyed meeting guests who have come from many different countries around the world. We genuinely enjoy hosting, however we do not want to have visitors staying with us continuously. For this reason we do not use the online booking system offered on this site. If you think you might like to stay with us, or if you have any questions at all, please contact Bev through the messaging system on this listing. If you do make contact could you please also provide a little information about yourself and your intended visit. Bev will always attempt to reply within 24 hours.
