Value single room with a view over the garden.

The room is private, cosy and safe, with block-out curtains and all the basics necessary for a comfortable stay for a day or a month.

My place is close to the city centre (5km).
You’ll love my place because of the location, the space and the native garden. This room is good for solo travellers. My house is in the inner north of Canberra, close to the bush reserve, and all amenities.
(Please see my other listing for the room with the double bed).

The space
The room is private, cosy and a safe space.
It is furnished with a single bed, large desk, wardrobe and very comfortable armchair.

The room has a locking door.

Note that that this is my second listing - the room has a single bed. For a double bed please see my other listing.
It is room only, and does not include a lounge room.

The house is a 1960s house. It has charm and I like it. It’s more than 50 years old, and while it is well maintained, it’s not a shiny new apartment, so please don’t expect that.
It’s cleaned (too!) regularly, and is very comfortable.

Guest access
Guests have access to the room, garden as well as light use of the kitchen. Longer term guests may of course use the washing machine.

There is no lounge room access for this room, both due to COVID-19 social distancing and the nature of the house. This is reflected in the value price of the room.

Other things to note
Please note the location.
It is 5km from the city centre, in the inner north of Canberra, by all accounts a good part of Canberra. An easy drive, ride or local bus into the city centre.
I am baffled by recent reviews giving low location ratings, given that guests can see the location BEfORE they book.

If dogs make you uncomfortable, book elsewhere. Guests need have zero interaction with my dog(s) but if you actively dislike them, please don’t make things strained for both of us just because the room is value priced.

For longer stays... sheets and towels will be replaced weekly, and a light room clean offered also.
You are welcome to use vacuum and washing machine.
If you require more frequent changes, this will of course be accommodated within reason.

You are expected to clean up after yourself in common areas, such as the bathroom and kitchen.

I always answer any and all messages from you as soon as I receive them.

And... welcome. Canberra is a small but actually quite nice place. I’ve lived here for a long time and and am always happy to help out with local advice.

I DO allow your own dog, but this is by prior negotiation only and will incur an extra fee of $10 per day (per dog), but naturally I will expect you to clean up after them, and they must be good with other dogs and people. My yard is fully fenced and has plenty of trees, has dog couches on covered deck and it is fun for dogs. If I'm around I enjoy hanging with "guest" dogs :)

Location

Hackett, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

Please ensure you have read this, and are fully aware of our location before you book.
We are one of the closest suburbs to the city centre, being in the inner north, but are not in THE city centre.

The house is located in probably the safest and quietest part of Canberra.
Only 5km from the city centre, and 500m from a bush reserve. Access from Sydney is easy and quick, off the Federal Highway.

There is a playground in my street.

The local (Hackett) shops are 900m away (a pleasant 10 minute walk), and include a small IGA for groceries and alcohol, a cafe / restaurant and Thai restaurant as well as bike mechanics and massage therapist.

For a larger choice, Dickson is 3km away, and has many more grocery stores and a street full of restaurants, including many Asian ones... it is known as the "China Town"of Canberra.

EPIC (Exhibition Park) where the National Folk Festival is held, is just over 3.5km away.

Canberra city is 5km away, and offers all the amenities of a major international city ;)
