The house is in Newtown in a quiet street with large trees and a park. You just have to cross the park to get to King street. All the shops, the train station, the hospital and the University are 5 minutes away.
The house is very modern with a lap pool and has 3 floors, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large open plan kitchen, lounge, laundry and garage. The bedroom has a nice comfortable double bed, a desk and chair, lots of wardrobe space, a TV with 160 channels and a large/beautiful roof top for your own use. It will be your own little paradise in Sydney.You can use the kitchen for breakfast and at night for dinner there is 300 restaurants around the corner in Newtown and many of them at very reasonable price. I have one or two tenants depending and we have 3 cats and one small poodle and they are the kind of animals that is no problem with people with allergies. There is wireless hi-fi for you to use. The house is quiet and everyone gets along really well and of course you can use the pool anytime.
If you are coming to Sydney, you can take the taxi straight to my house for about $30.00 from the airport or the train to Newtown station and I could meet you there. I have travel all my life and will help you whenever I can.
Newtown is very convenient to the Airport and Sydney's CBD. The Sydney University and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital are also within a short stroll away. Once a modest working class area, Newtown now boasts one of the most popular restaurant strips, which this city has to offer. Excellent eating from many nationalities abounds here. Best of all you don't have to be on an endless budget to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Our local area is now one of the most sought after residential addresses for Sydney-siders's. Businesses, particularly restaurants, have flocked to King Street, which is at Newtown's heart. The area is well serviced with smart shopping and is now is a far cry from its modest beginnings in the 1960's.
Culturally Newtown is like no other suburb in Sydney, or, quite possibly, Australia. Here is the highest concentration of live theater venues found anywhere in the country. Newtown is now a stimulating melting pot of society. Walking down King Street you can pass Uni students, colorful artists, same-sex couples, elderly locals, wealthy professionals and young families. Newtown's café culture offers a perfect opportunity to sit back and absorb the surrounding atmosphere. Enjoy a coffee while partaking in the favorite local pass time of people watching.
There is a refreshing air of tolerance about this place. You can tell there are no expectations made - you can be comfortable with whoever you want to be in Sydney's Newtown. You could be in the Plateau in Montreal or the Left Bank of Paris.
The buses and the train station is 5 minutes away and takes you downtown very quickly.

I really enjoyed my stay at Marie's place. Was definately good fun and the room was very tidy. Spotless. I'd be more than happy to stay there again and therefore can recommend it to others very well. Thanks again Marie!
Thank you Marie and airbnb, you made our mini-break in Sydney a friendly and relaxing experience. Communication was very helpful and Marie was there to welcome us.The apartment is in a fantastic location close to multiple cafes and restaurants. It is an easy walk through the park to Newtown Railway Station. Our room was spacious and private, and had a lovely balcony overlooking a huge tree. It also was fun to have pets around. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay here with Marie...the location is excellent, we walked everywhere! Marie was lovely and the room was perfect for what we needed
Would definitely stay with Marie again when in Sydney
Let's see, where do I start. Marie's house is by far the best house I've seen in 2 months in Australia (and I've been in many). It's also by far the best value-for-money deal you can get in the whole city of Sydney. A room in a beautiful modern house with a lap pool in one of the most lively, quirkiest neighborhoods in Sydney. It doesn't get much better than that.
Except that it does, because the best thing about Marie's house is Marie. She's a very smart woman who lives an incredibly interesting life and is more than happy to share some of her life stories with you if you're willing to hear them. And she bakes bread. And lives with two adorable cats and a dog. She loves traveling and you get the feeling that she just loves life. She is exactly the kind of person you want to meet while traveling.
Among the 1000+ things she does, she's studying italian so: grazie ancora Marie! Sono felicissimo di averti incontrato e spero di rivederti presto!
Marie is a great host! The house and the rooftop terrace connected to our room were stunning!
Marie was very helpful in advising getting around the town.
I recommend to stay here. And new town is a lovely place to stay. Lots of bars and little shops.
My partner stayed one night at Marie's place in Dec 2013. The house is in a great location with easy parking and only a short walk to King Street, Newtown. Marie was a lovely host and no problems with check in etc.
Wow what a beautiful house and the kitties and pup are darlings. Nothing beats swimming in the cool waters of the saline pool after a long day of travel. Marie made me feel right at home and was very helpful in pointing out sites of interest n her neighborhood. If you are into swing dancing, there is a class very close to the house in a church hall on Tuesday nights. Also check out Rowda Ya-Habibi for amazing veg Lebanese food on King St.
My stay with Marie could not have been better. Not only hugely more value for money than a 5 star hotel but actually a much better experience overall. Marie is very helpful and friendly. Living in her house, you will have your own space and privacy with all the comforts of home, and what an amazing house, architecturally beautiful, ergonomic and very comfortable with the bonus of a swimming pool. It is very well located, in an interesting and artistic area, also being close to the main attractions and to the airport. I left feeling like I had seen the real Sydney.
The animals are very sweet and if you are not a fan of pets, these particular pets would not be a problem, they keep themselves very much to themselves.
It was my first experience on airbnb and it has set the bar high for others!
Marie was very welcoming and her house is stunning just as it says in the title. It's quite unusual to see such a superb house design let alone sleep in one. The location, of course, speaks for itself. Overall, only good things to say!
Marie's house is as beautiful as the photographs suggest. The dog and cats were a great addition to my stay.
Levien, Marie's housemate showed me around and made me feel very welcome.
The location is convenient for Kings St in Newtown.
Despite only meeting Marie briefly (our schedules didn't really match up) she was a welcoming and polite host.
