I was in Sydney for my studies and I needed a place that was comfortable, close to public transport and quiet. Jude's place is all of that and more. I loved Jude and Saffy, her dog. There's supermarkets and restaurants nearby as well. The place and area were perfect for what I needed for my stay.
Given that this was my first aid B&b experience, I honestly had no idea what to expect. I was greeted by a lovely message from Jude the day before my arrival asking if I'd like anything special prepared for me. Jude is super friendly and we've had really great conversations about life, family and just anything in general. She keeps the house nice and tidy, everything is well supplied, and her house is only 5 minutes away from the bus station which goes into the city every few minutes. The shops and gym are located less than 10 minutes. If you are a relatively young traveller, I assure you'll be in good hands!
The location of Jude's beautiful cottage in Neutral Bay is perfectly situated to explore Sydney. Quick and frequent bus service is just around the corner and it is only one stop to the city center. Jude loves her cozy home and it shows. The well designed space is stylishly decorated with an open and airy look and feel. A wall of glass doors opens from the living room to the tranquil garden where one can have breakfast al fresco or just relax with a glass of wine. Jude is interested in getting to know her guests without being intrusive...conversations are always lively and stimulating. The real standout though was "Safie", Jude's miniature, Italian greyhound. Safie is a sweetheart of a dog...I so looked forward to being greeted by her each morning and on my return after a day of sightseeing. Go and enjoy this special place.
