Which type of accommodation for your stay in Sydney? Our good plan Airbnb!

January 10 2017

As loyal Airbnb travelers, we didn’t change our habits and booked our accommodation in Sydney. Far from reserving in advance, we decided to book our room for our first two nights in Australia only a few days before leaving.

We felt immediately in love with the beautiful room that Anna and Marcus propose in their magnificent house in Bexley. So we booked without much hesitation!

Bexley: a suburb very close to the center of Sydney

Bexley is located in the outskirts of Sydney and is a rather residential area, quiet, composed of pretty houses.

Positive point: Bexley is only a few minutes from the airport, so we took an UBER to get to their house. A one-way fare costs less than 15 AUD (about 10€)! If however you take the train from the airport to the center of Sydney, it costs 30 AUD (15$ / each).

Rockdale: the train station connecting Bexley to the city center

The Rockdale train station is close to the house (a 10-minute walk if you are a stroller!). The train takes you directly to the heart of the city (stops: Central / Redfern / Town Hall) as well as to “Bondi Junction” which is the station for the famous beach of the same name!

You must have an OPAL Card to use the public transport facilities in Sydney, so you should, therefore, buy the card at the station. Although, Anna & Marcus provide you two precharged OPAL cards each with 10 AUD!
The only condition of use: Recharge your cards at the end of your stay with the same amount, so their next guests can benefit from the same surprise. Great idea 😉

Perfect hosts for an excellent accommodation in Sydney

Anna and Marcus are the perfect hosts. Very nice, helpful, they are full of kindness. The communication before, during and after our stay was very pleasant. It is a real beautiful couple that has a true gift for hospitality.

The positive thing for us: They love wine 😉 and welcome all their guests with a package of TAM TAM, the traditional “Aussie biscuits.”

Their home can compete to appear in the most interior design magazines. Everything is in detail, a lot of taste, modern but very warmly decorated. We quickly felt at home!

Please note: If you rent a car, you can park it without any problems and free of charge. If like us, you need to work a lot and use the internet, the WIFI works wonders.

Accommodation in Sydney, a cost to anticipate (except with Anna and Marcus!)


Staying in Sydney is expensive for the most people and Anna and Marcus are aware of this. They want to propose a cozy and affordable alternative: count 65€/night for two persons.
