Description

The space

Welcome to Sydney!

A large comfy queen size bed awaits you within this bright and airy room with large windows. The house is more reminiscent of being in a traditional french style home than the centre of this beautiful city we call Sydney!

There is no other accommodation so close to everything in the centre of Sydney with the same advantages. We offer FREE WiFi, FREE cleaning service and air conditioning in the bedrooms.

A traditional terrace on three and a half levels situated just south of Hyde Park and in walking distance of Central Railway Station - six to eight minutes.

We are close to Hyde Park, Centre Point Tower, the Opera House, the Harbour Bridge, Darling Harbour, Chinatown, all theatres, museums, art galleries, St Mary's Cathedral, Fox Studios, Sydney Cricket Ground, swimming pool and the Domain.

There is an abundance of cafes, restaurants and coffee shops, and you can shop till you drop in the City, Darling Harbour, The Rocks and Oxford Street.

There is one downside - we cannot get TV reception in this home, so if you are addicted to TV, please don't book - however, we do have a large selection of DVDs which you can watch in the family room or on your laptop in the comfort of your room.

Enjoy your stay in the real Sydney with its city life and famous icons and all the best beaches just a bus ride away! I have just uploaded some photos of Bondi Icebergs swimming pool taken on a winter's day - August 3, 2012.

A minimum stay of 4 nights applies for NEW YEARS EVE with a holiday loading. The holiday loading is written on the calendar and just to clarify, this rate for the nights around Christmas/New Year is $242 per night with no weekly discount. I trust this helps

Thanks and look forward to meeting you!

Guest access

I am very happy to spend time with guests if this is what they want however, I am equally comfortable to leave guests to enjoy their own schedule. It is my belief that people who choose to stay at a BnB are very lovely people and willing to share stories and time together when it fits in with their plans.
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen for tea or coffee anytime, and there is a very large range of teas to choose from plus organic coffee, and also to prepare breakfast if they are here for a longer time or have special needs.
I have found that most guests choose to eat out and enjoy the varied range of foods in this are(URL HIDDEN)without the work of shopping and preparation and cleaning up afterwards! After all, they are on holiday and spending time "at home" cuts down time enjoying this beautiful city.

Interaction with guests

Communication is everything - please ask if there is anything you want to know.

The neighborhood

I feel that the reason why I have many repeat bookings is simply because it is so easy to get around from this location.
When I travel overseas I always choose the place closest to the Central Railway Station as this is usually an indicator of easy access to all amenities. It also means that I don't have to spend money and time finding my way on public transport for everyday things. It is just so convenient when you can walk to places you need to be - and also more efficient.
And that is what this place offers.

Getting around

This neighbourhood is so very convenient to get around everywhere. And the quantity and quality of the places to eat is exceptional. There is a restaurant or cafe to suit everyone's choice.
I am and have been totally organic for over 6 years now so if anyone wants advice on where to get the best organic choice, please ask me.

Other things to note

Please ask if there is anything which you are not comfortable with. I am always happy to listen and make sure that your needs are met if possible. Remember questions ARE the answers!

Sydney, Australia · Joined in April 2012

I'm into health, fitness and totally organic food, and before retirement, worked as a senior manager for 20 years for a multi national newspaper corporation.
My interests are meeting people, finding out about them - and conversation.
I love hearing other people's stories and learning about them and their experiences.
I have lived in Sydney for 24 years and am always happy to recommend activities, restaurants and things to see when in Sydney.
Any early risers who stay here are welcome to drive with me to Bondi Beach for a sauna and swim or just to enjoy the beautiful view and walk barefoot in the sand - a great way to get over jet lag fast. One thing - I usually aim to be there before 7am.
My current motto is "The Thinker thinks . . . and the Prover, proves - and brings about the circumstances to make it happen" - by George Zalucki - and another on
"It is what it is - people are who theare and they do what they dMOVE ON! Plus - when things could upset you just quote this. "Its NOT IMPORTANIt doesn't Matteand NO ONE CARES!!!

The things I can't live without?? Mmmm . . . my family, fresh ocean air, good healthy organic food, exercise, the company and conversation of positive, happy people. Is that five?
And most importantly . . . just being.
We are Human Beings . . . not Human Doings.

One of my favourite movies is Avatar and another one is Mama Mia - great to watch before going to bed so you wake up singing!
Looking forward to meeting you!
