Newtown is very convenient to the Airport and Sydney's CBD. The Sydney University and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital are also within a short stroll away. Once a modest working class area, Newtown now boasts one of the most popular restaurant strips, which this city has to offer. Excellent eating from many nationalities abounds here. Best of all you don't have to be on an endless budget to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Our local area is now one of the most sought after residential addresses. Businesses, particularly restaurants, have flocked to King Street, which is at New town's heart. The area is well serviced with smart shopping and is now is a far cry from its modest beginnings in the 1960's.
Culturally Newtown is like no other suburb in Sydney, or, quite possibly, Australia. Here is the highest concentration of live theater venues found anywhere in the country. Newtown is now a stimulating melting pot of society. Walking down King Street you can pass Uni students, colorful artists, same-sex couples, elderly locals, wealthy professionals and young families. Newtown's café culture offers a perfect opportunity to sit back and absorb the surrounding atmosphere. Enjoy a coffee while partaking in the favorite local pass time of people watching.
There is a refreshing air of tolerance about this place. You can tell there are no expectations made - you can be comfortable with whoever you want to be in Sydney's Newtown. You could be in the Plateau in Montreal or the Left Bank of Paris.
Be gentle with the animals and kind with the resident. You can use the kitchen for breakfast only.
My Boyfriend and I had such a great time staying at Maries, such a beautiful home and perfect location! Marie was especially helpful and has a great knowledge of Sydney, she recommended a quaint little cafe around the corner which we loved and wish we could be eating at right now! Everything was exactly as described. If you stay here you're sure to fall in love with her home and her pets, we highly recommend it for a memorable stay in Sydney.
Loved it! Great house, great host, great room overlooking the swimming pool, laid back, easy going - cracking location. I felt like I had the place to myself. Marie is awesome to speak with and can see why her accom is so popular. Pets - loved them - wouldn't even know they were there unless I hunted them down for a pat!
Thanks Marie - I'll be back!
I only stayed at Marie's place for one night, but everything was great. The house is beautiful and located 5 mins from one of the most pleasant streets in Sydney; Marie was exceptionally nice and helpful with cafe/restaurant recommendations. Highly recommended.

About the Host, Marie
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?
