Being an avid traveller I have stayed airbnb so i know your needs! very happy to host you and show you my exciting city...
my home is just 10 mins by bus,ferry or train from the city, Bondi beach. Double Bay and Bondi Junction. Both shops and transport just a 10 minute walk away. Woollahra is a luxurious suburb with exciting coffee shops, fashion shops in the famous Queen Street, beautiful parks for meditation and walks, friendly and safe.
The house offers free wireless, easy parking, a great sustainable garden with barbeque and lots of seating.
The kitchen is fully equipped. I offer you unlimited tea and coffee, breakfast and surprise treats! and my last guests have also scored a few family dinners
The bedroom is sunny and large with your own balcony, television and fridge. You would share a bathroom with other guests if there are any, otherwise it would be all yours. It has a double bed and is opposite the bathroom.
The lounge/dining room are great relaxing spaces with television and lots of greenery to look at.
I can provide a cooked breakfast if you require at a small additional cost as I live here too. Otherwise there is always toast, cereals, fruit and other little morsels with unlimited tea and filtered coffee.
Dinner and lunch can be readily supplied at a small cost.
I am very easy going, speak French and a little Italian, German and Russian.... I'm in the food industry so I'd be happy to create a wonderful romantic meal for you too!!
The price is per room per night, maximum 2 guests in double room. The house has 3 double rooms, individually priced, please see other listing.
Use of the laundry is $10 per load.
The main joy of this home is it is very quiet yet so close to everywhere you would like to be.
Be aware that I am near the bottom of a steep hill, so most trips home require a walk up or down!! There is a worthwhile coffee shop at the bottom though.
If you have a car there is ample parking right outside.
I often head to the beach for an early swim and would be happy to drag you out of bed too! The closest beach is 20 minutes walk to a harbour pool, very pretty or 30 mins to the surf at Bondi.
The park across the road is like a rainforest, so pretty and varied.
Garden, living room, occasional use of kitchen in the evening, 2 bathrooms.
Interaction with Guests
If at home , I love to chat over coffee or a glass of wine.
There is a bus at the bottom of attunga st that goes either to the city or bondi junction.
15 mins walk will take you to a ferry to the city (7 mins )
10 mins walk will take you to trains and endless buses all over Sydney.
No smoking permitted inside.
Free access to tea and coffee, and usually treats. Prefer no use of kitchen after 8 pm
Please be respectful - no showers or dinners after 10pm.. please use water wisely, short showers and sensible use when using the basin - I'm a raging conservationist!!! not really, but we should have an awareness of its preciousness!
Laugh a lot
Our host was delightful, welcoming and extremely generous. The accommodation certainly lived up to expectations- a most comfortable bed!
We loved the location and would definitely return.
Ruth was just as wonderful and sweet as her yummy mud cake :) She took really good care of me and offered me help many times. I really appreciated that. The suburb is really safe and pretty, and the walk from station to her place was within reasonable distance (7-10min). I loved my stay at Ruth's place. Thank you million times for your help and hospitality. I wish you all the best :)
Loved the place and the host is more like a mother then a host. She is fantastical, so welcoming and friendly. Thank you Ruth!! I will recommend your place to my friends.
We really appreciated staying at Ruth's place. It's a beautiful house plenty of light.
It's in a quiet, residential area. You may have to take public transport if you don't have your own car. Ruth was very nice and drove us several times to where we wanted to go.
All I can say is I had a faboulous stay at Ruth's place. Room was bright and spacy.
House lovely and well located. Ruth was a caring and very helpful host.
Thank you very much !
Hope to go there again.

My Airbnb experience here was so excellent, far beyond my expectations!! From a smooth, simple check in to a wonderful hot coffee and luxury breakfast every morning. My clean, comfortable room was just what I needed as a traveler. In-house wifi, fully equipped kitchen and bath - perfect. There are many beautiful beaches within minutes and terrific restaurants. Ruth is a superb hosts attended to every detail as well as driving me around during my stay. She has lived in the area for many years and know all the locals secrets. Whenever I return Ruth will be my first call. My highest recommendations!!!
This is a great place to stay for exploring Sydney. Ruth will make you feel right at home and nothing is too much trouble to make sure you have everything you need. The rooms are very comfortable and the rest of the house is lovely, including a deck which unfortunately I didn't get time to enjoy!

About the Host, Ruth
Active epicure! Ardent traveller! People eater!
I have been a French teacher, English to migrant teacher, many other things but now I have a catering business and work from home making delicious smells.
I've been living in Oz for 30 years, originally from UK...
Spend my leisure scuba diving, walking, swimming and lots of theatre... in fact anything that's on offer!
Just off to walk a dog in my little neighbourhood rainforest - and it's been raining, yippee.
I really enjoy meeting all my happy guests, showing them my favourite places and just being there for them. We learn so much from each other.
I guess my motto is to work hard play hard and share our spoils.
