“We really enjoyed our stay at Helen’s place in Malabar. We called it our ‘penthouse suite’ as it is the whole top floor of the house with separate entrance and fabulous views over Long Bay and the headland. There is a large bedroom and a living room with a kitchen, and a separate bathroom. We had everything we needed, and Helen was kind enough to stock the fridge with some essentials before our arrival. She even supplied us with fresh tomatoes from the garden. We walked over the headland to Maroubra Beach, and then down to Little Bay in the opposite direction. We explored Malabar Beach, which has probably the safest swimming in Sydney, and also the saltwater pool, which is 5 minutes’ walk away. We also visited Randwick Golf Club, where we were made very welcome on their terrace for sundowner drinks and Sunday lunches. The views of the ocean from here are truly spectacular. There is also an indigenous people’s site just across the road, which added an intriguing touch of history. We also took the 399 bus from just outside the door that connects to the Light Rail that takes you into Central Sydney - it couldn’t be more convenient. Helen was a very considerate hostess, and kept in touch all through the process. We really hope she comes to stay with us in London again soon, as we’d really like to re-visit Malabar.”

About our home
We have a lovely self-contained top storey of house with brilliant views of the ocean from Malabar Bay to Maroubra. Beach. The safe swimming beach (no surf or rips) and ocean pool are just a few minutes walk from the house.
There is a wonderful walk across the Malabar Headland to Maroubra beach with spectacular views along the way. The golf course located 4 minutes walk from us is right on the coastline. Lots of children's playgrounds within short walking distance.
Bus to city 5 minutes walk. Trip to the city takes 45 minutes and we are 15 minutes from the airport.
The living area is spacious and very bright. There is a 55 inch Tv including Netflix. It has bifold doors the full width of the room leading to the balcony. The balcony has a table and 6 chairs and has expansive views of the ocean, golf course, district and trees.
The kitchen is well equipped with oven, microwave, induction cooktop and washing machine.
The bedroom is a good size and has a large built-in mirrored wardrobe and a TV. There is a single sofa bed which can be set up in the bedroom or the lounge room.
Malabar is a coastal suburb situated around Long Bay. Malabar is mostly residential, but with large plots of land devoted to the Randwick Golf Course,and parks. A small group of shops is located at Prince Edward Street, close to the intersection with Anzac Parade. There is a good shopping centre called Pacific Square 10 minute drive or bus trip from Malabar which contains Coles and Aldi supermarkets, vegetable shop and an excellent fishmonger.

Helen's reviewsAs a host (2)
“We loved it. Another million dollar view over the bay. We walked along the bay each day, rain or shine. The house was beautifully clean with everything we needed. A bus stopped right at the door making it easy to reach the Light Rail. Our host was lovely to deal with and we look forward to meeting her next year. ”
More about us
We're an Irish couple living in Sydney for 40 years but with close family living in Ireland and.UK. We love to visit them and combine it with time in European countries especially when we can do any part of the Camino Walk. Sean is a retired lecturer and Helen retried public servant.
We are interested in long term swaps in London, Birmingham, Sheffield or other large UK city. Shorter term swaps also. Both top and bottom of the house would be available although both storeys are self-contained.
