Earlier this month, we opened a new space in Sydney, Australia. The office opening comes about a year after HomeAway acquired Stayz.com.au, the leading vacation rental marketplace in Australia.
The space will house more than 90 employees, and will be a new home away from home for the HomeAway Australia team that was formerly based in Melbourne as well as the Sydney-based Stayz team.
The new digs are centrally-located in the Woolloomooloo neighborhood and the space itself was designed to look like a modern beach house with some of the most spectacular views. Employees can sit and eat their lunch, play PlayStation or table tennis, or sip on café-style coffee in front of the most impressive view of Sydney Harbour. In fact, because of the office's central location, there are stunning views of the entire city from nearly every seat in the house.
With top-notch meeting room facilities featuring images chosen by employees, general break out areas and plenty of space, the office has a bright and positive feel, reflective of our friends down under.
