No sharing ! This space is a real home away from home experience where you can live like a local. Interaction with GuestsI love meeting travelers from all parts of the world & helping them enjoy the experiences of a first time visit to Sydney.I have lots of experience assisting overseas based family & friends to see the best parts of Sydney using public transport and avoiding expensive tourist services. As an initial back packer myself to Australia, and having traveled all over this beautiful country, I have tons of tips & tricks on how to enjoy a very affordable holiday & make big savings. The NeighborhoodThe apartment is located in a highly desirable, quiet and safe residential estate overlooking the beautiful Bellevue Park. It is a easy 700 metres walk to Parramatta CBD & 25 minutes train ride to Sydney CBD.

There is plenty of free parking on the street directly outside the apartment.
Parramatta is Sydney's second most important commercial and retail CBD.
Parramatta was originally home to the Dharug Aboriginal tribe who had inhabitated the area for more than forty thousand years before British settlement in 1788.
The city has one of the finest and most important collections of colonial architecture, including Old Government House, Hambledon Cottage,Experiment Farm and also boasts Australia's oldest surviving building-Elizabeth Farm House (1793). There are many fine churches such as St Johns (1819).
Today, Parramatta is the geographic and demographic centre of greater Sydney.The skyline is now full of modern buildings, the tallest being Escen on Church, while retaining its rich historic atmosphere.
