Bright and airy fully equipped home, close to everything you need including cafes, cinema, restaurants, park, city and tourist attractions. The house has two bedrooms (1 for guests), two bathrooms and laundry facilities. Small backyard. Self help continental breakfast, including home made muesli.

Guest access

Guests have their own keys and can come and go as they please but please no parties.
Good wifi connection.
Access to washing machine, clothes drying line and drying rack, kitchen, dishwasher and a small backyard to observe the wildlife of inner Sydney (parrots, bats, lizards). There are no dangerous spiders.

Interaction with guests

I can assist guests with local information and transport options in Sydney and Australia. Some guests want the non tourist walk options and one couple brought their bicycles for transport and parked them in the front room.
Guests are free to use the shared facilities.

The neighborhood

My trendy neighbourhood is friendly and close to everything. Coffee culture 50 cafes and restaurants, a shopping mall and a cinema complex within walking distance. A gym, swimming pool and Sydney Park are all close for anyone wanting exercise. A shopping centre with supermarket, alcohol shops, butchers, bakers, Asian groceries and deli. Some novelty and clothes and phone shops.

Getting around

The nearest train station is St Peters Stations and it is 17 minutes to Circular Quay (for ferries, Opera House, the Rocks) and all the tourist attractions. Buses go to the city, Sydney University, University of Technology Sydney and Coogee Beach.
It is also easy and fun walking around the King Street shops or going to Sydney Park for a walk or run.

Other things to note

There is a wardrobe and drawers for storage in the room and lots of space in the house for luggage, two bicycles or surfboards.
Unrestricted parking is only available on one side of the street so it can be tricky as it is on a first come basis.
