About this listing
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. The shops, train station, hospital and the University are 5 minutes away.
The house is very modern with a lap pool. Spread over 3 floors it has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large open plan kitchen, lounge, laundry and garage.
The bedroom has a very comfortable queen size bed, a desk and chair, lots of wardrobe space, a fan or air/con and free to air TV with 160 channels. There are tea and coffee facilities in the room and a large courtyard (that belong only to the bedroom) under a canopy of trees to sit and sip champagne at night. It will be your own paradise in Sydney. I 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 internet for you to use. The house is quiet and everyone gets along really well and of course you can use the pool anytime. The bathroom is immaculate and will only be shared if I the other room is rented.
I have two other rooms, in case you have other people with you.
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 traveled 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. There are 300 restaurants close by in Newtown and most of them very reasonably priced.
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.
Respect the other tenants and be kind to the animals. You can use the kitchen for breakfast only. Be happy, enjoy the beauty of Sydney.
We stayed only one night at Marie's place but her warm welcome, friendly nature and beautiful home made for a very pleasant stay. Everything was provided. The home is clean, comfortable and relaxing. Very easy walking distance to Newtown and just a lovely part of Sydney to stay in. Highly recommended. Oh, and she has an adorable puppy called Charlie.
Another lovely stay with Marie. Gorgeous house, large comfortable rooms, welcoming and accomodating host, and best location in Sydney. One of my favourite places to stay. Thanks Marie.
Unfortunately due to flight cancellations I was unable to stay with Marie. However, the contact I was with Marie was fabulous...she was very understanding. I look forward to staying there another time.

About the Host, Marie
I am a French Canadian woman who came to Australia long time ago just to visit and I never left. I love traveling more than anything and love meeting new people. I fell in love with Sydney and it's people because it is a new country, it is free and the climate is semi-tropical. What's not to like?
