Welcome to Randwick!
I have a great room available in my art deco apartment in Randwick which is just a 10 minute walk from Coogee Beach! It’s on a quiet street and 5 minutes’ walk to Randwick Junction – which is a transport hub for the area and has all the shops you need for a holiday – food, bottle stores, chemists, newsagent, banks, cafes and a huge selection of great (and cheap) restaurants.
The room is small but really warm and sunny, with drawer space and a super comfy sofa bed. It's perfect for a girl/guy travelling alone or a couple on a budget - I am well travelled so know how nice it is to be able to have some personal space after weeks or months of travelling, this is your chance to be able to spread youself out for a few days!
The lounge features a TV/DVD and ipod dock, along with a dining table and chairs, and two large comfy sofas - perfect for chilling out on to watch dvds!. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you would need and theres a washing machine (no dryer unfortunately) but over summer clothes dry super quickly on the line in the back yard (very safe) or there is a laundry five minutes away who are cheap. The bathroom is clean with a great high pressure shower!
There is no parking with the apartment, but there is plenty of street parking in the area. The apartment is located just five minutes from Randwick Junction which has regular buses to the city, Central Station, Airport, Coogee and Bondi Junction, so a car really isn’t needed to stay here. Coogee Beach and Centennial Park is a short 10 minute walk away, as is the Prince of Wales Hospital in Randwick.
It costs just $4.50 to get to Randwick on the 400 bus from the airport, and there are also regular buses to Central Station by bus (372, 376). It’s an easy walk to Coogee Beach but there are also buses (374, 373) and various buses to Bondi Junction (phone number hidden)). The city is just a short bus ride (around 20 – 30 minutes depending on traffic) on the 373 and 377 buses.
Randwick Racecourse is a 15 minute walk away. There are several excellent restaurants at the end of the street, along with at The Spot which is 10 minutes’ walk. It also features the cute Randwick Ritz Cinema, which is an art deco theatre and just $12 for adults ($8 on a Tuesday!).
Randwick is a great location for exploring the Eastern Suburbs and Sydney. There is the Coogee to Bondi Walk which takes around 1 ½ - 2 hours to walk and has stunning views of the coastline. Coogee is full of great cafes and restaurants including the Coogee Bay Hotel which has one of the best garden bars to be found!
Surroundings areas such as Newtown, Surry Hill and Paddington are all easily accessible from here.
I provide breakfast - toast, cereal, tea, coffee (plunger and stovetop), fresh milk and all the basics you need for a stay. I love to cook, so if you are desperate for a home cooked meal, I am happy to whip something up!
Please note that I do not have internet however the cafe at the end of the street has wifi. They have delicious coffee and are open till late every night!

Kerryn and Brent were lovely hosts and flatmates, whose warm manner and generosity made me feel really welcome. I was in Sydney for a conference in Coogee and their place was a lovely 25-minute walk from the venue, a great way to start the day while seeing a little of the area.
Kerryn was a lovely host! The room was nice and clean and the apartment provided everything we needed. The location in Randwick itself was great, everything within walking distance, and you could easily reach the city or Bondi from the nearby bus stops. We had a great time - thank you!
Kerryn and her partner are very gentle and polite. They make me feel like home. Their home is close to the busstops and to the center of Sydney, but quiete as well. I enjoyed it very much to talk to them. A big THANKS to both of you (and take care)!
Das Zimmer war sonnig aber nicht toll. Es war sehr klein. Das Foto gibt keinen realistischen Eindruck des Zimmers wieder.Das Haus ist insgesamt etwas baufällig.Die Duschwanne müsste dringend erneuert werden. Bis auf das vermietete Zimmer ist die Wohnung sehr dunkel.Kerryn und Brent waren freundlich. Die Wohnung war sauber,es gab Orangensaft zur Begrüßung und es wurde sofort ein Ventilator aufgestellt als wir in großer Hitze ankamen.
It was good being with Kerryn&Brent. Brent was cool and friendly. Though we didn't see Kerryn much, her kind letter and map was helpful. Breakfast she prepared was yummy to hungry traveler. Her house is in great location nearby beach and shopping center. Bed is comfy window is big and there is rope across the room so we could hang our clothes. Thanks Kerryn&Brent

I am a kiwi living in Sydney, a city which I love! I have done a lot of travelling over the last 10 years so I know how nice it is to have the comforts of home when I'm away.
I love to cook, and entertain friends, head to the beach for a swim, and like ot relax at the end of the day with a glass of red wine.
I am very easy going and would love to make my home available to others who want to spend some time in this great city.
