The Space

We have recently renovated our self Contained Studio Apartment at the back of our property. It is bright and spacious with everything you could need for your stay. There is separate access from the side lane so you can be as private as you like but we are available for advice should you need it. The studio is set up for two adults however we are happy to accomodate families with a vast amount of kids paraphernalia around that you are welcome to borrow.

The studio is adjacent to Carriageworks with its multiple performance spaces, saturday farmers market and monthly artisan market. The local streetscape is quiet with beautiful mature english plane trees lining both sides. A park directly behind the studio is due to be completed in early 2014 (unfortuanely they are a year behind program so far).

We are very centrally located in Sydney with the CBD only 2 train stations away, or a 30 minute walk. Our nearest station is MacDonaldtown which is 2 minutes walk away.
Within 10 minutes walk of the studio is a multitude of restaurants, cafes and shops on the culturally vibrant King street. Sydney University, UTS University and RPA Hospital are also very close.

It is a fully renovated light filled studio with 1 Queen Size Bed with crisp white sheets and comfy pillows. There is also:
Kitchennette (Single hob, microwave, toaster, kettle, saucepans, utensils, cuttlery & crockery etc.),
Separate bathroom with shower,
Wireless Internet,
Air conditioning,
Washing Machine,
Ceiling Fan,
Travel cot and blow up beds for children available if requested.

Guest Access

Guests have access to the garden on the way to the studio. The garage is often left open to the garden and it useful for storing bags if you arrive early or need to catch a late flight.

Interaction with Guests

We live in the main house, while the studio is at the end of the garden above the garage. So we are close by to say hi, give tips on where to go and help out if you need anything but otherwise we don't often see a lot of the guests that have stayed so far. Access is through a separate gate into the garden with the studio entrance off the garden. On weekends if we are not sailing then the kids will often be playing in the lane and garden. I am in and out most days so I tend to leave the key for guests in a key safe by our front door.

The Neighborhood

Newtown is very funky and ecclectic. The suburb has gentrified a lot in the last 20 years so it has a suaver edge to the grittiness. King St is the main street with up and coming designer shops and every kind of restaurant you could dream of. Over the last few years there has been a bit of a baby boom in the area which has made it very child friendly.

Getting Around

We are very close to Macdonaldtown train station (2 minutes walk) and redfern station (15 minutes walk). There are many buses that run along king street which is 5 minutes walk away. If you prefer to walk, the city is only about 30 minutes walk away.

Other Things to Note

We have now confirmed that the studio will be available during the Christmas/January school holiday period but at this stage we will only accept a minimum 7 night stay over this busy period.
