New South Wales' top five stays

Font Size:

Airbnb in New South Wales is booming. The variety and quality of stays is staggering. However, many of the most lavish stays come with an equally exorbitant price tag. Many of these are far above most people’s budgets – we’re talking around $2000 a night – so to keep things a little more realistic, YourLifeChoices has chosen the top five Airbnbs in NSW that cost less than $400 a night. You won’t be disappointed.
