The Space

I have a comfy single room with balcony in my apartment in the heart of Newtown, the cosmopolitan hub of Sydney. Share bathroom and kitchen with other guests in this cool, leafy, 60’s style pad, situated in between Enmore and King, the thriving main streets of our buzzy village. The living space is a boheme cushion room with a low table for relaxed eating, and armchairs for those who don’t like knee bending.We have two balcony areas. Come at the right time of the year and you can eat grapes straight from the vine on our north facing balcony while on the other take tea and watch all of Newtown parade on by.

We are just four minutes south of Newtown Train Station, down the interesting end of KIng, close to all the vintage, second hand, designer shops. There’s cute wine bars, yoga studios, theatres, cinemas, music venues and restaurants close by.

Would you like to eat Turkish, Vietnamese, Thai, Korean, African, Greek, Chinese, Italian, just to name a few? Listen to blues, jazz, raunchy rock and roll in live venues, go for cocktails in intimate wine bars, walk the historic Camperdown cemetery, brick works and wetlands, visit an artisan milliner, check out local galleries? Ten minutes by train to the Opera House, Harbour Bridge, Circular Quay; catch a ferry to Manly, a bus to Coogee, be at Bondi Beach within 30 mins for an early morning swim.

NOTE: This room is not always available so please enquire re dates.

Interaction with Guests

I work from home so I am often busy, but I love chatting with guests about their traveling adventures. The Single Boheme however is the room I rent out when I am away, so chances are I won't get to meet you this time.

The Neighborhood

Newtown is by far the liveliest suburb in Sydney, with great restaurants, funky shops and bars and a vibrant whiff of creativity in the air. You must definitely experience the great pasta at the Pastizzi Cafe! And of course their famous pastizzi. Open all day til 11pm/

Getting Around

Off street parking is included, trains and buses are close by: 10 mins to the Opera House, 5 mins to Central Station. Best way from the airport for a single is airport train to Central ($17) then change trains for Newtown Taxi from airport to Newtown is around $30 so it is cheaper for 2 people.
