About this listing

Hey, welcome to my spacious ensuite master bedroom! And welcome to my apartment and Dee Why, with its beautiful long sandy beach. Shops, cafes, and bus stops are a 2 minute walk, the beach is a 10 minute walk and it's a 35-40 min bus ride to the city. If you're staying in there's loads of books and DVDs to sample. If you're looking for that home-away-from-home feel then I believe I offer that, and at a bargain price to boot!

Description

The space

The room itself is a bit over 3m x 5m with a Queen bed, a huge wardrobe, a generously sized ensuite shower/toilet, couch and a TV/DVD. The sun will stream in in the morning if you choose to leave the blinds open.

Guest access

As your 'home away from home', no place in the apartment is off limits, so you'll have access to the kitchen (inc a guest cupboard and fridge space), the terrace area (and BBQ), living room and dining area.
Note that it may be possible to put up to 4 people up but up to two will be on the sofas at no extra charge - contact me prior to booking if this is your plan.

Interaction with guests

I tend to be out 2-3 nights a week at least and work 8-5 M-F, but if I'm around I do like to get to know my guests (I've a long history as a CSing host), have a chat and a drink. I might well cook for you sometime, firing up the BBQ on a pleasant evening. I do turn on the TV to watch a movie occasionally and you'll always be invited to join me. I have been known to take guests out and about at weekends.
On the other hand, if you like to simply do your own thing, then that's fine with me too.

The neighborhood

You also have access to all the facilities of Dee Why town (on our doorstep, the usual cafes, restaurants, butchers, bakers and candlestick makers), the wonderful beach (10 min walk) and its ocean pool, string of beachside cafes, and the quite stunning walks that head from the main beach both north to Colloroy (1 hr) and south to Manly (about 90 minutes). There are miles and miles of beach, cliff and headland walking on the northern beaches and you shouldn't miss at least a taste of them!
*** Note that a new town centre development is being constructed in the blocks adjacent to mine: there may well be construction noise during the day, 7am - 5pm Monday to Fridays, 8am-3pm Saturdays. If you're going to be out and about it won't matter, but if you're all about relaxing indoors or on the deck all day then you might want to stay at least 800 metres from the area bounded by: Pittwater Road, Oaks Ave, Howard Ave and Dee Why Post Shop ***

Getting around

The main Dee Why bus stops are literally a 3 minute walk and there are regular buses to Manly, Chatswood, the Northern beaches (Palm beach etc) and of course the city centre.

Other things to note

Check-in is after 6pm Mon-Fri as I work, but I can be more flexible at weekends.
I won't make you breakfast, but you're welcome to help yourself to tea/coffee, toast, cereal. I clean the rooms and change the sheets/towels at the end of someone's stay, so if you're here for a while it's up to you how often you change sheets/towels (there are plenty in the cupboard) and clean.

House Rules
No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Check-in is after 6PM

I don't run a hotel or a bed and breakfast - I like to share my life and space with interesting people (while at the same time ensuring I cover my mortgage!). I believe I'm offering a very good value deal and in return expect some consideration for my living space. Anything outside your bedroom I expect you to leave as you find it.
I will ask you to avoid using the clothes dryer and aircon unless really necessary, not leave all the lights on (I'm a bit of a greenie), and to not use the living room television if I'm around (there's one in your room!). I will ask you to conserve and recycle where possible.
No pets or smoking I'm afraid. Children usually possible - chat to me first.

Hi, you'll be sharing the apartment with me most of the time - this is not an exclusive apartment arrangement. I'm pretty laidback, like a read on the sofa with a glass of red (the living room television is rarely on), a stroll down the beach, a hit of tennis and cooking for friends. I've travelled a fair bit - and extensively in Australia (was actually part of a team that wrote the 1st edition 'Footprint' guide to the country a few years ago). I'm a big fan of the 'couch-surfer' concept, and have hosted around 100 CSing guests over the last few years (in my heyday I was Sydney's #1 host - you can check out my profile 'Swaff' on the website) so I think I know how to make someone feel welcome. I'd love to be able to afford to host that way permanently but finances don't allow at the moment, hence Airbnb. I like to believe that you'll be staying not so much because it's a cheap option but because you're looking for a 'home away from home' - and I will strive to provide that.
