The Space


Being an avid traveller I am very happy to host you and show you my exciting city from this leafy suburb of Woollahra...

my home is just 10 mins by bus or train from the city, Bondi beach. Double Bay and Bondi Junction. Both shops and transport just a10 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. You are welcome to help yourself to a great salad fresh from the garden.
The kitchen is fully equipped. I offer you unlimited tea and coffee and surprise treats!

The bedrooms are sunny and large with a double bed. You would share a bathroom with other guests if there are any, otherwise it would be all yours.
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, fruit and muesli on tap with assorted teas and plunger coffee.
I would prefer no use of the kitchen after 10am

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 per room. The house has 3 rooms, individually priced, please see other listing.

The main joy of this home is it is very quiet yet so close to everywhere you would like to be.

  • Ruth is an excellent hostess and a great cook who spares no effort or expense providing nutritious breakfast (croissants and carrot cake straight from the oven), pleasant conversation, and a relaxed 'this is my home... please feel free to share it with me' and welcoming attitude to her guests.

  • I helped a young woman friend find Ruth's place on Airbnb, while she was looking for a more permanent place after moving to Sydney. Ruth is the kindest and most generous hostess! She not only offered a very nice and comfortable place for her to stay, Ruth went out of her way to help her settle in the vicinity. Thank you so much, Ruth. You are truly amazing!

  • Ruth is lovely, very kind and welcoming and makes you feel at home from the moment you arrive.

    During our stay she gave us numerous lifts up the hill, cooked us a lovely meal, gave us plenty of tips, advice and suggestions and was a pleasure to stay with. Her house is extremely comfortable, quiet and a lovely relaxed atmosphere and we were also able to meet the other guests that were staying at the same time.

    I would thoroughly recommend staying with Ruth as it was a priviledge staying with her at her home. Woollahra is a great location providing access to Bondi Junction and connections to the great beaches of Sydney and Circular Quay, either by bus or boat.

  • Ruth is true to her word, and brings the special combination of supportive and resourceful host -- while providing a beautiful home with light from which to move through one's day in the city, independently. For joggers or morning walkers, there is a lovely park (Cooper Park).

  • Ruth (email hidden) who more than once anticipated a request before we even had to ask. The house and garden are a lovely cross between good taste and elegance (email hidden)d in" feel that makes for a comfortable homely environment.

  • An oasis from the of the hustle and bustle of beautiful, bountiful, Sydney.
    A house filled with light ,positive energy, and a wonderful, very friendly, helpful host.
    I felt at home the minute I walked in and slept soundly every night in a quite comfortable room.
    A warm calm energy came from within the house, and the host, and the lovely tranquil garden.
    A home away from home, with the perfect host..Loved my time here. Didn't want to leave!

  • Ruth's house is a very attractive modern house, conveniently located very close to Cooper Park and also close to Bondi Junction and Double Bay. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

    February 2012
  • Our stay with Ruth was fantastic! I loved this area of Sydney - close to the beaches and the city center, and it's just a lovely area to walk through, grab breakfast, go for a run, etc. The house is great, too. We did share a bathroom with another family staying there at the same time, but since we were all in and out we didn't really get in each other's way. Ruth was thoughtful to leave out breakfast goodies for us in the morning, and dropped us off a couple of times to save us a long walk or taxi/bus ride. She was incredibly hospitable and generous. You'll love your stay here!

  • Staying with Ruth in this lovely part of Sydney was a real treat. Not only does Ruth make you feel completely at home in her fantastic house and garden, but she shares her insights as a passionate local with great tips for places to go, things to see and (email hidden) and an interesting woman – I was sorry I wasn’t staying longer!

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.
