General overview

Our home has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and can comfortably sleep 8. It's a very spacious home with lots of living area. We're on the leafy upper north shore of Sydney, only 5 minutes walk from Warrawee station which will take you in to the centre of the city in about 35 minutes.

The space

Our home is two storey with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (incl 1 ensuite) upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs. Downstairs there is one full bathroom and a separate toilet in the laundry. We have a formal lounge room, dining room and the "big back room" with a casual living area and new kitchen. It's very spacious, comfortable and quiet. We've not long completed a covered alfresco eating area (main photo of our profile now). It's completely enclosed but can be opened up on two sides. It has a TV, a BBQ, a couple of decks and a spa for 6. It also has a fish pond with gold fish, perfect for relaxing! We're animal lovers and you'd be most welcome to bring your small doggo.

Guest access

The front door is up a flight of stairs which can be seen in the first photo. Unfortunately, our home would not be good for wheelchair access.

Notes

Our home is not well set up for infants. While both the pond and spa are legal, they aren't enclosed and I'd be concerned about having toddlers around or small children who could lift the spa lid.

Neighbourhood

Warrawee is a leafy suburb on Sydney's upper North Shore. It is close to Wahroonga village and walking distance to Turramurra and Warrawee train stations. This is a beautiful quiet neighbourhood.

Getting to my home

If arriving by road, from the north we are only about 2km from the exit to M1 freeway. Leave the freeway and turn left onto the Pacific Highway, then left into Cherry St. Brentwood Avenue is on your left. If heading north, turn right into Turramurra Avenue and then left into Brentwood Ave. By rail, Warrawee Station is the closest (500m). At the top of the stairs, turn left onto the bridge and then right as you exit the station on Warrawee Ave. About 100m down, you'll come to a path that continues down the side of the railway corridor. Walk down there and you'll come to Brentwood Ave.

Nearest airport

Sydney Airport is 34km from home, 35 mins in really good traffic or over an hour in bad traffic. If arriving in peak hour, take the train and change at Central for the T9 Northern line.

Getting around

The train station is only 500m away and it's 30 mins into the centre of Sydney direct. Chatswood is 15 minutes, Hornsby is 6 minutes. Trains leave every 15 minutes. We have a car available which you'd be most welcome to use. It's about 30 minutes to the beach.

Feedback

  • It seems mildly ridiculous to be leaving a review of Drew and Kathy as exchangers when, having set up People Like Us, of course they know how to be the perfect people to swap homes with! And on that front we weren’t disappointed on any level! From the first point of contact, communication was fantastic – friendly, informative, humourous and reliable. We very soon felt that Drew and Kathy were friends we just hadn’t met yet. And then we arrived in Warrawee to discover that their house is just as gorgeous as the photos on the site make out – clean, spacious, well-equipped, comfortable, welcoming, and a true home from home. The location is perfect, especially so for us as we have friends and family nearby, but even for those without that draw, there are shops and restaurants a short walk away, and within a couple of minutes walk you can be at Warrawee station and on a train into the city - with all of the many attractions there. Drew also allowed us the use of his car, which opened up so many other national parks and attractions for us to explore nearby. We had a truly amazing stay in Warrawee, and really did feel that we couldn’t have hoped for a more perfect swap than this. We definitely would be happy to exchange again any time!

  • We have just spent a wonderful weekend in Warrawee; simultaneously exchanging with Drew and Kathy. Their home is sensational; fabulous separated spaces and combined delights in the spacious and tasteful living spaces with kitchen and party room. This is a home where a number of people could be at once apart yet united in their collective comfort zones. It would be difficult to summon up any angst or anxiety in a space like this that invites engagement with fun, and a tacit statement is well made about the value of valuing life. Not surprisingly, it's the home of People Like Us founder; Drew. We loved the 'Big Arse TV' and the space to chill. International or interstate exchangers would find that Drew's place is a few minute's walk from Warrawee station as well as being a few minutes by car, (depending on time of day) from the Wahroonga shops with one of our favs: Pastadelli and the Patisserie next door. Or, a few minutes the other way takes you to Turramurra shops. The train gives good access to the city and links to ferries, airport etc. The upper North Shore is a beautiful leafy area with lovely homes and streetscapes within a short trip from the heart of Sydney; travelling across the famed Sydney Harbour Bridge. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Drew and Kathy's home and recommend it as a serious quality experience. It reinforces our commitment to the concept embodied in the sense of us exchanging with and therefore learning with and from each other, of being glad when we find 'People Like Us' Thanks Drew and Kathy for a lovely experience: "Hey Google! Shout loud applause for Drew and Kathy!"

  • Drew & Kathy's home is amazing. Located in the beautiful North Shore area of Sydney, this stylish home was extremely comfortable with everything you could possibly need. Loved the kitchen and living area! It was one of the coldest winter weekends, so we were happy enjoying a coffee, and reading the paper in the warm winter sun, coming through the big back room. We walked to Wahroonga one morning, and Turramurra the next, with very easy access to many shops. As the train station was so close, we took a 10 minute trip to Chatswood for dinner and drinks. We would love to come back to experience more of this beautiful part of Sydney. My dream ensuite, would be the same as theirs!

  • Fantastic place to relax outside the hussle and bustle of downtown Sydney yet easy to get around and see everything. Walking distance to local shops and public transport. The house is stylish, large, super comfy and fully equipped. Drew and family are very hospitable and easy to contact if we had any questions. Highlights for us were catching the train over the harbour bridge into the city and back! Spectacular view of the harbour if you sit on the upper level! Plus close proximity to Kur-in-gai national park with many amazing bush walks. The Easter egg hunt in the beautiful landscaped backyard was also a winner. Highly recommend a visit!
