Our favorites were the Greenway along the canal and Iron Cove. The walkable amenities were also fantastic. We loved the streetscapes of Haberfield, known as a garden suburb, and of course, Lynne's house and the greenery of her garden were wonderful. Kimi May 25, 2021 I have spent about a year in Lynne’s flat in Haberfield: it has everything to make someone happy! The location is perfect, with many shops and good restaurants nearby as well as close access to public transport. Haberfield is a quiet, safe area and people are very friendly in this suburb. The University of Sydney is only a short bus-trip away. The flat is fully furnished, and opens towards a luxurious garden: it really feels like you live in your own house! EP May 2018 Lynne's apartment is really cute and nicely decorated with a beautiful backyard. It is located in the completely wonderful suburb of Haberfield, which has great Italian restaurants, bakeries, cafes and little shops. The buses are convenient for getting into downtown Sydney - it's 30 min from the door taking the bus to the University of Sydney. There's a beautiful park really close by with tennis courts and a great path for running and cycling. I really enjoyed my 3 month stay! Beatrice Feb 2015 I loved it there so much I stayed there twice. I felt like I was in a small Italian town, not a big city, staying there. But it was still very close to the action in the downtown/CBD. I would recommend the apartment for anyone that wants a cozy neighborhood in a big city. Danielle July 2014 We stayed in Lynne’s lovely flat from February to July 2014. We had expected to leave at the beginning of May and extended our stay… twice – that says it all really! Debbie
