The Space


Being an avid traveller I am very happy to host you and show you my exciting city...
I'm travelling Europe until August and 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 is $10 per load.

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!

  • Ruth is a wonderful host. She was extremely welcoming and cared a lot to create a wonderful experience for me. She was available to answer questions and made some excellent suggestions about what to do and see around Sydney. Her house is perfectly located in a rather quiet neighborhood. Thanks Ruth!

  • We had a great stay with Ruth. She made us feel very welcome and was very generous in giving us lifts to the station etc. Her place is very comfortable and in a great location. I would not hesitate in recommending her

  • Absolutely amazing host, helped us out so much with advice on where to go etc. She also gave up her own time to look after us and show us places that we wouldn't have seen if we hadn't stayed with her. Ruth made us feel very welcome in her beautiful home and really bent over backwards to make sure we had a nice time. She is a very busy lady and does a lot for other people with no thanks, so thank you Ruth, we had an amazing time and we would love to come back one day so you can babysit! Ha!

  • If you are reading this review, look no further and book this BNB! Ruth has the most incredible home, large, very spacious, and I must add the most comfortable bed I have ever had the privilege of sleeping in. The accommodation is central to all major transport spots, and very easy to move around from this location. Ruth is the most incredible woman, (don’t know where she gets the energy from), but between her busy life, makes you feel more than welcome and is a hive of information for any Holiday maker, or Business man! Really enjoyed my 7 day stay there, and can recommend this as a five star accommodation spot! Thanks Ruth, really had a great time, and…" I’ll be back! "

  • Staying with Ruth was a real pleasure for my friend Sonja and me and definitely made Sydney feel like coming home again. Ruth went out of her way to make us feel comfortable and even offered to drive us up to the Junction a couple of times. The house is really clean and looks exaclty as in the pictures, no surprises there, appart from the garden, which is even prettier than on the pics. For anyone wanting to stay in Sydney, Ruth's place in Woolhara offers it all: some peace and quiet, a quick walk to the beach in Bondi and it's only about 10 minutes away from Bondi Junction (Busses into the City or trains (another 10 min.)).We're definitely going to come back :)

  • This was our first experience of an air bnb stay on home turf. Ruth was very quick to reply to our request and extremely helpful for our planning. Ruth was very welcoming on our arrival and was an attentive and generous host throughout our stay. Her house is beautiful -light and spacious -and so well connected to buses, train stations and close to shops and cafes in Woollahra, Double Bay and Bondi Junction. There was even a garage at the end of the street where I could get some work done on the car!
    Her other guests were good company too and even though we were in late most nights it all went well.
    A great stay in a fabulous place and locale.

  • Fantastic host from start to finish! Beautiful house in a great location and a comfy bed to boot. Ruth is new to Airbnb so I suggest you book asap before she becomes fully booked! Ruth made me feel so welcome it was difficult to leave and I would love to return when I am next in Sydney!

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.
