Large bedroom with en-suite bathroom and queen size latex bed in a sunny, light filled, rooftop apartment. Conveniently located with easy access to public transport. A fantastic selection of affordable and tasty restaurants close by.

The Space

The room is spacious and easily accommodates two adults. You will be sharing the apartment with two of us (adults), a 10 year old girl and a cat. The room is reasonably self contained so if you are looking for privacy... its ideal. It has its own modern en-suite bathroom, a TV (including apple (email hidden) fridge, kettle and hairdryer. The apartment is conveniently located very close to buses and trains to the city. It is a short bus trip to Newtown, where you will find a huge selection of delicious and affordable restaurants, an eclectic mix of boutiques and gift ware shops, cinemas, pubs and bars. If you arrive by car, you are welcome to use the underground car park, we have one free space available. The room contains a large built in wardrobe so there is plenty of space to store your clothes and belongings.

Guest Access

We are more than happy for you to use the common areas of the apartment, although we have found so far that most guests prefer to hang out in the room.

We aim to be as flexible as possible with check in / check out times. However if you are arriving the same day that someone else is checking out, a first thing in the morning check in may not be possible. Likewise if you are checking out on a day someone else is checking in, we will not be able to accommodate a late check out. If you have particular needs with check in/out could you please let me know before making a booking.

Interaction with Guests

Whilst friendly and happy to have guests to stay we do not plan on a huge amount of interaction. We both lead very busy work lives during the week so do not have much spare time available. Having said that we are very happy to help you out in any way we can, to give advice regarding getting around in Sydney and suggestions regarding sights to see and things to do and what ever we can do to make your stay more comfortable.

The Neighborhood

Fantastic eating is available at many inexpensive restaurants. Vietnamese food is the flavour of Marrickville. We are right next to Cook's River and the bike path that connects the Marrickville to Botany Bay and further out to Homebush. The path is very beautiful and flat all the way west right along the Cook's river.

Getting around

There is a bus stop right outside the building which takes commuters up to Newtown and then onto the city. Trains are a short walk (5-10 mins) and its only a short ride into the city. I recommend taking the train over the bus it is much quicker and more efficient. We are very close to the airport, it takes about 10 mins and in a taxi costs about $30.

Other Things to Note

Superfast broadband.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Georgia (email hidden)! The apartment is very nice and clean, everything is available for a good stay. Private bath is a huge plus. Georgia was very nice and helpful! I highly recommend this place.

  • We had a wonderful stay with Georgia and her family. The room was very generously sized and having our own ensuite was just perfect. We didn't have a great deal of interaction as all of us were extremely busy, but the conversations we did have were lovely and we felt very at ease staying there. The secure underground parking was great and everything we needed was in walking distance. We sampled three local restaurants during our stay and enjoyed delicious meals as well as lovely staff. A wonderful experience all around which I will be highly recommending to anyone looking for a great stay in Sydney.

  • I stayed at Georgia's place for a week - during this time Georgia and her family were friendly and helpful hosts. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfy! I would recommend staying here and would return if in Sydney again.

  • The room is very spacious, and it's definitely a bonus to have the ensuite bathroom! Not forgetting the TV and kettle; it made us very comfortable in the room indeed. Thank you very much to the amicable Georgia and family for the great place and kind hospitality given! You made us feel like your place was a second home away from home. :)

  • Once again, Georgia, Peter & Olivia gave a wonderful welcome. They shared their lovely home and made us feel very much at ease.
    Hope we didn't disturb you too much leaving at that ungodly time in the morning.
    Thanks once again for the great stay in your home.

  • Our stay at Georgia's place was great. Beautiful, modern and clean room (and house) with great roofterrace. Busstop in front of the house and trainstation on 10 min walk. By train, within 15/20 minutes in the middle of the city. Georgia and her family were very friendly and hospitable. We recommend staying here!

  • Georgina, Pete and Olivia were the perfect hosts.The accommodation was just what I needed. Very comfortable and spotlessly clean and the secure parking was a bonus. I hope Olivia's tooth finally came out and that the cat didn't do a Houdini and escape. I would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone who is looking for a quiet and friendly place to stay. Thanks again Georgina.

  • Georgia, Pete and Olivia are wonderful hosts. Very warm and accommodating. Busy lives for all. Great base if you’re in Sydney for work and want close proximity to great cheap restaurants, a supermarket and all. The underground parking is also brilliant. Great place with everything you could need. Having your own ensuite is a GREAT bonus and a huge bedroom to really feel at ease in your won space. Very comfortable home, bed. Clean and quiet surroundings. Train is the quickest way to the city by far, and easy. The bus can take a looong day in peak hours. Happy airbnb’ing!

  • I had a lovely stay with Georgia and her family. The room and ensuite are fantastic and would also be great for two people, and the apartment is gorgeous and perfectly located for public transport and the airport. I was barely ever at the apartment during my stay, but Georgia and her family were really nice and considerate hosts. Would definitely recommend this place to others looking for clean, modern and well located accommodation in Sydney.
