About this listing
We offer accommodation with an artistic outlook. Our fully self contained and independent apartment, re-built in 2011, is a completely re-worked 1890 end terrace. Our apartment is a short walk from Carriageworks, King St., Sydney Uni. and RPA.
The King double bed in the master bedroom can be substituted for 2 singles to enable a twin bed arrangement in that room.
The architect has made the most of abundant natural light and ventilation.
Setting the scene for your exploration of Newtown's galleries, shops, music venues, theatres, & restaurants (and exclusively for the enjoyment of guests), is a retrospective by Australian artist Tony Twigg.
(In conjunction with Tony's SLOT gallery, we also host the DIP 24/7 Street Art project in our old Shopfront window.)
The bedroom features a King size bed, or 2 X extra length single beds. Your unit has a separate den with two King single sofa beds, suitable for two or three accompanying children. There is a second separate toilet just off the lounge.
The full sized kitchen has a cooktop, microwave, oven, complete with a 4 place dining setting.
There are adjoining laundry facilities with laundry tub and combined front loading washing machine/dryer.
Your ensuite bathroom features twin head and twin control showers, stone top vanities and heated towel rails.
Your kitchen opens onto our fully grassed courtyard where you will find an authentic Italian woodfired oven and mains connected natural gas barbecue.
We will meet you at the apartment whenever you should arrive between 7AM and 10PM.
If you arrive outside of these hours we have a special collection point for your access card enabling you to let yourself into the apartment.
A small to medium size car can be parked in the courtyard of the apartment. Access is through a remote controlled roller door.
Public transport from Sydney airport.....
If you take the train to our place, it will cost around $16:50 per person and it will take nearly half an hour to complete the train journey + 10 minutes to walk from Macdonaldtown Station to our place.
(From Macdonaldtown head up Burren Street and turn right into Wilson. Golden Grove is the next roundabout you come to.)
If you catch a taxi, it will cost about $33. The taxi ride will take about 20 minutes, and you will not have to do any walking. So for 2 or more people it is a no-brainer! Catch a taxi!
Even for 1 person we do not believe the $10/15 saved catching a train is worth the time lost- the hassel of changing trains & the final walk. Try to have cash for your taxi ride. In Sydney taxis have a 10% surcharge if you use a credit card.
By bus, heading out of the city, alight on King Street just past the intersection with Queen Street. Walk, back in the direction you came, North, into Darlington Road, (old Sydney Uni. Regiment on the corner). Turn right into Golden Grove.
By bus, heading towards the city, alight at the corner of King St. and Carillon Ave. The old Sydney Uni. Regiment building is virtually opposite the bus stop. Cross the road at the lights and head round the old regiment building into Darlington Road. Soon Golden Grove Street appears on the right.
Interaction with guests
As your host I am at your service to the degree that suits you best.
After showing you your unit I generally assist folks with a short orientation tour of Newtown.
However, if you prefer independence and know the lay of the land, you can enjoy solitude and privacy within minutes of arriving.
Other things to note
We get your visit off to a flying start with the supply of a range of breakfast foods, sufficient to enable you to enjoy a morning meal whenever it suits for the first 3 or 4 days of your stay. Thereafter we ask that you take advantage of our awesome King Street shopping precint and the nearby Saturday Eveleigh Farmers' markets to top up your supplies by choosing food items to your taste for the balance of your stay.
We supply some fresh fruit, milk, juice, yoghurt, bacon, cereals, plunger coffee, tea bags, quick oats, Kelloggs variety, Wheatbix cereals and a loaf of bread and spreads and margarine.
All the other facilities that you see in the images are included and they are private
