'We met Derek and Margaret through mutual friends while looking for a property in France (we live less than 30 minutes apart in both Sydney and France!). Their house in Sydney is comfortable and extremely well situated, and they are delightful people. Book with confidence.'

My family and I stayed in Derek's and Margaret's house for 3 months and we had a great time. The house is very comfortable, clean and spacious, and it has an amazing view of the city. Derek and Margaret are wonderful hosts and helped us whenever we had a request. I highly recommend this house! Excellent Alice 9/10/2018 12:10:00 AM
We are a family of 5 from Canada and we spent a month in Sydney and stayed in Margaret and Derek's Glebe home. We loved every minute of it! The house is cozy, well-appointed and situated in friendly Glebe, close to a multitude of restaurants, cafes and bakeries. and in close proximity to Darling Harbour. University of Sydney is within 5 min drive or you can walk in under 30min, the large Broadway mall is within 15 min walking as well. The house has great views of the CBD. Moreover, Margaret and Derek are very gracious hosts. Thank you, we will definitely return! Excellent harus 10/29/2017 6:13:00 PM
Our family (parents and a three year old) stayed in Derek’s and Margaret’s house for eight weeks. The house is very spacious and well kept. The location of the house is perfect; it is close to CDB, wonderful parks, shops and restaurants. Public transportation is working well, and many of the key locations are at walking distance. We enjoyed our walks in the surrounding areas as well as spending nights at home cooking and barbequing. The amenities met all our expectations and we truly enjoyed our stay. Derek and Margaret are wonderful hosts and they provided us all the information and help we needed. Without hesitation, we recommend this house to other visitors.

My family (spouse and 14 year old son) thoroughly enjoyed our one and a half month stay in this home in Glebe. The view of the city was fantastic and the home extremely comfortable. There were plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and good public transit with the light rail and buses. The owners were quite easy to work with and we had no difficulties at all during our stay. We would recommend this to other visitors without reservation. Excellent RV 9/16/2014 8:32:00 PM
We lived in this lovely cosy home in Glebe for three months and had a great time. Located in the heart of Sydney with stunning views from the terrace on CBD. The house serves all your needs with a lot of comfort and Margaret and Derek are great hosts. They provide you with any information (about the house, Sydney and surrounding) and we still love to meet and sit together with them for a nice evening. We can highly recommend this unique terrace house and would rent it ourselfs immediately again. Heike and Wolfgang Excellent Heike and Wolfgang 11/18/2013 8:46:00 PM
