Neil & Liz: Perfect! Hugh & Teddie.
We loved staying here. Rarely do you find a place that exceeds its promo.
A peaceful haven in a village setting, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world.

Grace a vous, notre 'honeymoon' commence admirablement bien! Votre B&B est vraiment charmant. Coup de Coeur pour le jacuzzi!
Thank you Neil for the private guided tour and the discovery of the Aussie beer... Nous n'avons maintenant plus qu'une seule envie: revenir a Sydney! Amicalement.

I loved staying at An Oasis in the City and would very highly recommend it. I stayed for 4 blocks of around 7 nights each and it was such a beautiful, nurturing and lovely place.
Lizzie, Neil and Gracie (the beautiful dog) were gorgeous and I felt so at home and could have stayed much longer.
I also loved Balmain and found people in shops and cafes really friendly – there's a great health food shop with excellent coffee and really good breakfasts. Thank you to Neil, Lizzie and Gracie for wonderful stays! Jill.
You have certainly raised the bar for all B&Bs, will be hard to top. We shall return. Desmai & Mira.
