Stunning bedroom + deck + POOL

House - Private room · Northwood St, Camperdown, NSW 2050, Australia

The Space

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.

Guest Access

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

  • We had an enjoyable stay at Marie's place as her room was comfortable and clean. Marie is a friendly host and she recommended eating places around Newtown to us, which was a pleasant walk from her house. We enjoyed playing with her lovable dog and cats too. Thanks Marie for hosting us!

  • Very nice place, and Marie was a great host. The place is well-located, close to the Newtown train station, restaurants, parks and coffee houses... The house is always lively, with various room mates and pets, all of them quite sociable (Jack the cat was my favorite). And I've never had Diderot as beside literature!

  • Marie was a good host who was very pleasant and happy to show me around the house and show me where everything was.

    The house is well designed and it's in a nice, quiet area.

  • 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.

  • 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 was very helpful in advising getting around the town.

  • 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.

About
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?
