Eco-conscious Travellers: Own Room

Apartment - Private room · Regent St, Redfern, NSW 2016, Australia

The Space

Welcome! This apartment will suit a short term eco-conscious traveller(s) to Sydney.

The room is fitted with a double bed, in-build wardrobe, writing desk, and shelves. I live in a modern 2 bedroom apartment in Redfern, complete with a full-equipped gym (5 minute walk to Central Station (city centre), Redfern station, close to shopping centre, pubs, restaurants, amenities) - which is an added bonus so you can unwind and have a work out during your stay. There is also a vegetable/herb garden (mint, coriander, parsley, tomato, basil) on the Rooftop, which you are welcome to take when cooking. I work from home more now (while doing some studies).

Ideally this would suit:
1. Low key.
2. Non-fussy
3. Easy going
4. Down to earth
5. Eco-friendly, vegetarian-friendly
6. Sustainability-minded traveller.
7. Non-smoker and mature traveller who is sensible and clean up after themselves.

A bit about the area Redfern: traditionally, it has been known for being a shady area, but in the past 10 year has seen major changes and gentrification. These days, its a hip place with lot of trendy bars, cafes, parks but still retaining its affordability in price.

If you are booking with me, please write more about yourself, the reason you're visiting Sydney and add a picture of yourself too. I'd like to know who I'm sharing my space with.

Please print a map from (website hidden) map, if you're coming by taxi or train to ensure you don't get lost. If coming by train, the nearest stop is Redfern station. The street address is Regent but main entrance is on Renwick St.

* At times, the couch is also leased out short term, so bear that in mind. Please email me for more info.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Kevin is helpful and friendly. It can be a better experience if he change the bed sheet and clean the apartment.

    Response from Kevin:

    Hi Wuu, the sheets were changed, and I hadn't had the time to vacuum the carpet, as Gabriel was around.

  • Everything was ok, nice apartment!

  • I really enjoyed my trip to Sydney. Kevin's place was an excellent location to enjoy all that Sydney and surrounding area has to offer only a few hundred meters from the train. Kevin was an excellent host. Laid back and caring with tons of insight I enjoyed our conversation. This is definitely a place I would stay again. Thanks Kevin for a wonderful trip. Jasmine

  • Kev is a friendly guy! The apartment is cozy and 20 min walk to George street. Room is enough big for 2 person with small baggage. Price and place are perfect.

    November 2013
  • The apartment/room was as described. Kevin was a friendly and helpful host.

    November 2013
  • I stayed at Kevin's homely flat for only one night but it was just what I needed and I had a great night's sleep! There was torrential rain on the day I arrived at Kevin's and it was lovely to go back to such a cosy place. I would say that the room is best suited to either shorter term stays (as described) or as a base if you're going to be out alot - this is because Kevin also lets out his sofa so it could get a little busy...! Kevin and his friend also very kindly helped me carry my luggage down the stairs which was much appreciated.

    Kevin was a warm and friendly host and I intend to keep in touch!

    November 2013
  • Kevin's house is a very unique, comfortable and convenient place to base yourself in Sydney. You have everything you need and you're within a few minutes walk of one of the most frequented train stations in the city.

Self Employed
I've moved countries twice in the span of 10 years and I've begun to realise that meeting new people and living in new environments is really what makes me tick. I work in a communication/design sector. I live in a 2-bedroom apartment and had the opportunity to meet and host a countless number of travellers. I am interested in living a sustainable life, so hopefully I can influence people around me to live sustainably.
