About our home

Our modern house is conveniently located to Sydney City, Sydney Harbour and easy access to the city beaches, including Bondi Beach. The house was renovated in 2011 to include a separate studio room (sleeps up to 3 - 1x Single bed and 1x Queen sofa bed) in addition to 3 bedrooms - 2 x single bed, 1 x queen bed. There is also a trundle bed available. 5 People can be accommodated in a proper bed and then 1 -2 people extra in either the trundle or the sofa bed. A maximum of 6 guests is allowed unless arranged prior.

The kitchen is well equiped with quality European appliances and almost any spice you could wish for. The rear of the house(studio) backs onto a park, so plenty of room to run around for the kids for a city dwelling. 100m from the front door is another park containing play equipment for younger kids.

2 televisions are available with Apple TV & Netflix. Quality sound system & wifi. Outdoor eating area with BBQ great for summer dining.
The local community are welcoming and inclusive if you would like to be involved during your stay.

The house is located in a trendy cafe suburb, and short walk to cinema, restaurants and shops. We have an authentic French cafe (Bitton) within 200m walk and is a hub of the community. A supermarket and amenities located within 10 minutes walk. Major city hospital (RPA) located only 10 minutes drive away. 3 Train stations located within 7- 15 minutes walk. Only 2 stops from central station on the train and 5 from Circular Quay. Easy access by train to the airport or a $30-$40 taxi fare. Circular quay, the ferry's and Opera house easy access by train.
