Sunny Double Room in Friendly House

House - Private room · Princes St, Marrickville, NSW 2204, Australia

The Space

Enjoy some lazy time in our quirky backyard in April before winter arrives!

I have a bright sunny room to offer in a townhouse which is conveniently located in the upcoming suburb of Marrickville with easy access by train and bus to Sydney City and groovy inner west suburbs including Newtown, Enmore, Glebe, Leichhardt.
Twenty minutes by train to Sydney Central. Sydney University and University of Technology Sydney campuses are also closely located. Access to the eastern suburbs beaches takes a little longer but the many beaches are just a train and bus ride away too.

The bathroom, kitchen and living areas are shared with two other permanent residents including myself. There is wifi access and space for parking if required. The property is located in a quiet area next to a river and parklands but is also very close to cafes, restaurants, bars and shopping in the surrounding areas. Great area if you like walks, running, outdoor exercise and sport.

The room can accommodate a single person or couple in a double bed. We look forward to hosting "new friends" from other parts of the world and learning about your lives too.

The room is available for short and long stays.

Transport to and from the airport can be arranged subject to arrival times as I work.

Please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions about the room and/or property.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My stay with Tania & Joe was a very nice one. Very kind people, giving you a lot of advice about where to go in Sydney. The room is quite large and the bed is comfortable. Bathroom is shared, but that isn't a problem at all. Only minor about the location could be that it is relatively far from train stations to go into the city. Marrickville Station is a 15 minute walk and Dulwich Hill a 10 minute walk. However a bus stop is a 5 minute walk away from the house. All in all, I was very satisfied about my stay and the hosts and would certainly stay here again, when I will be in the Sydney area again.

  • Tania and Jo are an amazing couple and for sure you`ll have a fantastic stay at their house! They are laid back, easy going and you can have a chat with them over a glass of wine. The house is convenient placed, 10 minutes walking to Dulwich Hill train station and you have plenty of stores/supermarkets in the area. The neighborhood is green,quiet, with birds singing and they have a very nice backyard where you can spend your time chilling out.

  • Tania was absolutely wonderful to stay with. She is so chilled out and excellent company to be around. I stayed for a week and had a fantastic time.

    The place is beautiful and in a lovely part of Marrickville. The train station is a quick ten minute walk away and there are plenty of places to pop out for dinner or go and do some grocery shopping. Down the road is a HUGE park for relaxing in.

    The room is lovely and I always felt at home. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

  • Great place to stay!

    We really enjoyed our stay at Tanias place! It was a pleasure to meet her.
    She was very helpful with everything! Plan our next stops, where to go in Sydney etc.

    We enjoyed the evenings sitting in her living room and talking with her!

    Thanks for the few days we could spend at your place!

  • We stayed at Tania's during our 4 day trip in Sydney. We had a great time and she gave us tips on things to do in the city. The room was very clean and comfortable so it was nice respite after a month of traveling.

  • Tania's place was just great for the first half of our stay in Sydney. We have been 4 nights at Tania's place. We highly recommend her if you ever visit this part of Down Under. Tania is very friendly and her house is very clean and comfortable. The room was perfect to get rid of our jetlag!
    Within a 10-15 minutes walk you could find a Woolworth and some really good Vietnamese restaurants and also the train station is not too far away to walk and makes it easy to get into the city!

  • We enjoyed the time at Tania. She is a very friendly and helpful person. Very lovely and comfortable room.
    Sydney City is reachable in 10-15 minutes.
    We would stay anytime again with Tania!

  • I had incredibly nice 6 weeks at Tania's place, located on a little hill in marrickville, a calm and nice part of Sydney.
    My room was clean and cosy, the bed was very comfortable!

    Kitchen, bath, shared living room, garden... all perfect! nice neighborhood and neighbors.

    Tania is a very amiable person, and a very uncomplicated host. I have enjoyed her company very much!

    This is the best place for someone who wishes to stay in a rather quiet, liberal, very green suburban area with a friendly, cooperative, relaxed, and cosmopolitan host.

    Very cool: a blue tongue lizzard occasionally sais hello in the garden and eats some of the berries that have dropped from the tree... amazing creature!!!

    If I come back to Sydney, I will definitely be knockin on Tanias door again.

  • Tania was an excellent host and made my first Airbnb stay a great one. She was extremely flexible with check-in and stayed late from work to allow me to get to her house from the airport after an early morning flight.

    The room was airy, spacious and clean and my stay was very comfortable despite the jet lag! The house is conveniently located about 15-20 min taxi/cab ride from the airport. It's in a quiet residential area only about 10 minutes walk from the train station which takes you right to Sydney!

    I was looking for a conveniently located place with good wifi, quick public transit to the city, and an easy going host and I found it. Very highly recommended!

  • I had an absolutely wonderful stay at Tania's. The room was beautiful, peaceful and quiet. The house in a very good location, close to public transport, but in a very quiet street just next to cook's river. Very clean and tidy with everything you need. I enjoyed living with lovely people who were all very welcoming, friendly and very funny too, I loved their stories! Tania is very helpful and there is a warm and homely feeling to her house with great people which can only lead to a wonderful stay. I recommend a stay at Tania's place to anyone, it's a guarantee that you will have a lovely time with everything you need and more. Thank you Tania, John and Joe for everything.

Hi. My name is Tania and I'm from Sydney Australia. My partner Jo is Peruvian and lives part time in Germany. We are both professional people and enjoy travelling to new places, architecture and history, eating and drinking and dancing. We are both non-smokers and not heavily into the party scene so looking for something a bit quieter where we can cook and enjoy the city when we want to.
