This is a quiet neighbourhood secluded and away from noisy streets and trucks but an easy 10 minute walk to stores and trains and buses. We felt very secure never threatened in any way day or night.
The property can easily be described as a Garden of Eden idilic with palm trees and many plants too numerous to name. Although the owners share this Garden of Eden they were never in our face but always ready to fix a problem or help in any way. Otto fixed a shoe for me and Anna replaced a curtain I damaged no charge. We came to their place from Canada knowing no-one in the Sydney area and they made us feel like we were family even inviting us for a real Hungarian Goulash dinner (they are of Hungarian heritage) They became true friends.
Loved the place and would sure go back if in the Sydney area. Thanks Anna and Otto for making our holiday (2 1/2 months) such a lovely time. Bruce and Nancy MacLaurin
A home away from home thoroughly enjoyed my stay
I am writing this review because I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in the self-contained flat. the minute I walk through I had a good feeling and calm. The flat is fully furnished it has everything you can think of or what you would have in your own home. The flat was immaculately clean, with everything in its place. The flat is conveniently located with the train station a couple of blocks away. The station is a direct line to the domestic & international airport and the city of Sydney. The shopping center is also located also near the station. If traveling by car there is ample parking and a couple kilometers from the M5 freeway which will take to various locations in Sydney. I stayed for two weeks and I have no hesitation in recommending this flat. The owners of the property are very welcoming and kind. They left you alone to do your thing but couldn't help to stop having a chat because of they genuine and lovely people. They really went out their way to ensure you enjoyed your stay. I even enjoyed a nice red wine with them and tried some of the best orange cake I have ever had. You won't be disappointed in staying in this location.

Lovely little Home from Home
My wife and I stayed here whilst visiting our daughter for two weeks in September and could not have wished for better accommodation. It has everything you need and more to make your stay a pleasant one and the owners, Otto and Anna, are the perfect hosts,(thank you for the bottle of wine to welcome us and the milk in the fridge). They respect your privacy as the bungalow is at the rear of theirs but are available at any time should you require them. We had regular chats as we passed through to the side gate on our way in or out. The property is well maintained with a brand new kitchen and although the bedroom and lounge may not be what you are used to at home, are sufficient for what we needed to relax in and the bed is very comfortable. It is so quiet with the only sound being the birds during the day and the frogs at night. It is situated approx 5 minutes walk from the main areas of Revesby which has a large Woolworths and some lovely coffee shops,bakeries,food outlets and the train station. The trains are so regular and it takes approx 25-30 minutes to get to Sydney. I can't say enough about this property but for value for money it is unbeatable and if we come to Sydney again we will definitely be looking to stay here again. Love the property, the owners and as Revesby is such a lovely place, the location.
Cozy, lovely, and warmhearted place in Sydney!
My husband and I stayed for 4 nights at Anna and Otto's guest-house and I would like to share with everybody else how much we enjoyed it. YOU WILL LOVE IT!
The guest-house has everything you need and it’s rare to find an accommodation that has an own kitchen, living room, bed room, and bath room. It was very clean and tidy and had everything we needed – and even things that you usually don’t expect. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped, and the living room very cozy. The neighborhood was also very quite and we enjoyed the peacefulness and the birdsongs, which you usually don’t have in the city. It’s just a 5 minutes walk to the Reveseby station and trains run very frequently to the city, which is approx. 30 minutes away by train. Stores were close by and many nice restaurants around the Revesby station.
One reason why we enjoyed so much the stay was Otto and Anna’s kind hospitality. It started with their fast way to respond to emails, they picked us up from the train station, had a welcome gift of wine for us, and provided us with everything we needed. For example, they borrowed us a sun umbrella for our beach day or gave us an adapter for our foreign devices. We also had nice conversations with them over a glass of wine and they told us a lot about Australia. Still, they always ensured that we had enough privacy during our stay.
We can definitely recommend that place to everybody else and it will be our favorite accommodation in Sydney. Thank you again, Otto and Anna! See you hopefully soon...
I have stayed at this wee cottage twice now and absolutely love it, it is my home away from home when visiting my children. The place is small but very clean and tidy, the lounge has a great TV and the bathroom has a good shower. The bedroom is quite tight with just a double bed but the kitchen has all the gear to cook and have my family for dinner and the grandkids could run around the garden.
Otto and Anna as my hosts were lovely people and couldn't do enough to make sure I had a wonderful time. From the welcome gift of wine to the ride to the station when I left.
The area is nice with lots of cafes and interesting shops, large supermarket and excellent vegie barn only a few minutes walk and the train will take you directly to town via the airport. Almost over the road is a fantastic aquatic centre with 2 pools and toddlers pool set in a large grassy area with playground.
Hopefully I will be back again soon.
