The house is in Newtown in a quiet street with large trees and a park. You just have to cross the park to get to King street. The shops, train station, hospital and the University are 5 minutes away.
The house is very modern with a lap pool. Spread over 3 floors it has 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a large open plan kitchen, lounge, laundry and garage. The bedroom has a nice comfortable double bed, a desk and chair, lots of wardrobe space, a fan, air/con and a balcony. There is facility for tea and coffee in your room. You can put breakfast stuff in the kitchen but no cooking allowed. I live with two cats(one Burmese and one Devon Rex) and one small poodle and they are the kind of animals that is no problem with people with allergies. There is wireless internet for you to use. The house is quiet and everyone gets along really well and of course you can use the pool anytime. The bathroom is immaculate and yours only.

I am a French Canadian woman who came to Australia long time ago just to visit and I never left. I love traveling more than anything and love meeting new people. I fell in love with Sydney and it's people because it is a new country, it is free and the climate is semi-tropical. What's not to like?
