About This Listing
This modern bright 4 bedroom home is in a leafy safe suburb yet just 7 mins walk to trains, buses and ferry. The ferry is just 10 mins to Circular Quay, the train just 7 mins to the city, the bus just 8 mins to Bondi beach.
Being an avid traveller I am very happy to host you and show you my exciting city...having stayed with airbnb hosts I understand your needs also...
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 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 with morning sun for a smiley breakfast.
The kitchen is fully equipped but I ask you to respect my working space as I'm a caterer. I offer you unlimited tea and coffee and surprise treats! and my last guests have also scored a few family dinners and breakfasts!
You may help yourself to fresh garden produce, at the moment lettuces, radishes and spinach!
The bedroom is sunny and large, with a queen size bed and large wardrobe and desk, a library of books on Australia and others. 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, cereals and treats on tap!
Use of laundry
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. It would be possible to have groups of 6.
The main joy of this home is it is very quiet yet so close to everywhere you would like to be.
It is possible to rent the whole house sleeping 8 guests, so speak to me!
Guests may use all the facilities.
Interaction with Guests
I am very sensitive to the needs of my guests - happy to drive you around, share my secrets and friends, or just "disappear"!
I love the safety, the proximity to many beaches and also the city.
The rainforest park
Queen street village
Buzzy cafe on my street
Buses, trains and ferries are all within 10 mins.
Other Things to Note
If you have an issue with hills don't stay here!!! I live near the bottom of a steep hill, but it is necessary to walk 10 mins up to Bondi Junction and its transport. Or a level 10 min walk to double bay also takes you to the city by ferry or bus.
no smoking in house
free to help yourselves to all hot drinks, treats and breakfast goodies. Prefer only occasional use of kitchen in the evenings.
please be respectful after 10pm - no showers, dinners etc
water is a precious commodity so I'd appreciate short showers and considerate use of water at the sink.
Ruth is a wonderful host and we thoroughly enjoyed staying with her. The rooms were gorgeous, breaky very tasty and she is a little bright spark who made us feel very welcome! Thank you for taking us to the Ferry and for your wonderful company! Biffie, Jo-Jo & Werine
What can't we say about Ruth and her Home! Excellent, great, perfect location, in short we were welcomed like long lost family. Ruth is a wealth of information about Sydney, generous with her assistance in helping us find our way around and getting over our jet lag, invited us to an Art Gallery open house, shared a morning dog walk and coffee, breakfasts were wonderful, and Ruth is a great conversationalist. Through her we were fortunate to get a true glimpse of life in Sydney; we wished we had stayed longer! Hugs Mary + Tom (Canada)
I can only say 'WOW'! Everything was great! The location of the house is fantastic, the house and garden are absolutly perfect and have a relaxed atmosphere (really good to come home to after a day of sightseeing) and Ruth is the best host ever. We had great breakfasts, she drove us around whenever possible and gave us tips which enriched our Sydney experience. Our stay with Ruth was the best way to start our vacation in Australia!
Die Beschreibung der Unterkunft war völlig korrekt. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Ruth Öse hat sich schon vor unserer Ankunft freundlich erkundigt; hat the gekocht und uns herzlichst begrüßt. Die Nachbarschaft war ruhig, zurückgezogen.

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.
