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 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 tv), a mini bar 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, there is plenty of visitor parking available. The room contains a large built in wardrobe so there is lots of space to store your clothes and belongings.
We don't mind if guest want to use the kitchen during the day, however we would prefer if you didn't use it at night as the kitchen is very close to both our bedroom and the living room and we have just found in the past that the amount of noise created, impacts greatly on our ability to relax. We have found so far that most guests (especially if you are on holiday) prefer to eat out in one of they many cheap and tasty local restaurants.
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 will 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 plan on arriving early in the morning or after 10pm at night 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.
A fantastic range of food is available at many inexpensive restaurants. We are right next to Cook's River and the bike path that connects 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.
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
There is no smoking inside the apartment however you may use the terrace.
You are, of course, free to come and go as you like.
Our cat is an indoor only cat so guests must be mindful to keep the doors closed and the cat in.
We do not accept bookings for more than two people.
Very good AirBnB. No negatives at all! Room looked more like a luxury hotel than an AirBnB!
Staying in Marrickville with Georgia and her family was just great! The room is spacious, has a fridge and a kettle and the bathroom is great. It's easily a place you could stay for longer visits also. It was no problem using the kitchen and I also enjoyed the sunny terrace. It's a quick walk to the trainstation and there are great coffee places along the way for coffee to-go or sit-down breakfast. I had some really great Vietnamese food in the neighborhood as well. The trainride to Sydney center is short and it's the T3 line that goes from Marrickville, which stops at all the inner city stops so getting home from anywhere downtown Sydney is really easy. Though I didn't see much of Georgia or her family during my stay, they were lovely whenever we did 'bump into' eachother and very helpful with letting me extend my stay with them. My full recommendation!
La chambre et la salle d'eau attenante correpondent bien à la description. Nous avons apprécié les nombreux rangements, le calme de l'immeuble et la possibilité d'utiliser le garage en sous-sol. Nous avons souffert de la chaleur en période estivale (décembre) en raison de la situation sous le toit de la chambre et en l'absence de climatisation. Mis à part ce détail, nous recommandons ce logement bien situé à 15 minutes à pied de la gare de Marrickville.
We stayed with Georgia and family for 4 weeks while on holidays from Ireland. We were extremely happy with our accommodation, it had all the facilities we needed, it was clean, homely and perfectly located for bus and train journeys. We would highly recommend. Caroline & Tim
Great room! It's very clean and comfortable. I'm very particular with toilet and bathroom when travelling and this is a place where I feel that it's as clean as my home.
Georgia, her husband, father and daughter were all very friendly.
Also love the bus that were right downstairs. Took the bus to circular quay on some days, I like that I get to enjoy the city sights without having to tire my legs by walking.
I'll definitely stay here again if I ever visit sydney.
Lovely, clean and modern place.
We had a great time in Sydney while staying at Georgia's Appartment.
We highly recommend this place!
Caro & Max
Georgia was a great host and her family was extremely friendly. I stayed there for 7 days and the best part was having an ensuite - which provided complete privacy. I would recommend this place to anyone.
We are a small family (male, female, 9 year old girl). We run a small organic food business ((website hidden)) in Sydney which keeps us very busy during the week. On the weekend we like to relax and enjoy some quiet time, cooking, bike riding catching up with friends. Looking forward to meeting some interesting people from around the world.
