About our home

Situated between city, harbour and Bondi Beach this is a small but perfectly located Paddington terrace house, the place for proximity to all Sydney has to offer and appropriate to relax between trips further afield in Australia.

On the street entrance level is the main living space with TV and a study with Wi-fi as well as a separate kitchen with oven, dishwasher, microwave, cook top, fridge. Upstairs there is one bedroom available with a queen size bed and adjoining lounge room with divan bed, then a shower room with WC next to dressing room. There is also a clothes washer. Dryer is in the basement. Further down stairs is a small courtyard garden and patio for outdoor living.

The house retains it historical character and has a range of furnishings both old and contemporary with art works and books. A fireplace and gas heating make it cosy in the cooler months. Use of car and garage is negotiable. Our street is quiet and tree lined.


More about us

  1. We are John and Jenny, retired history and visual arts teachers who continue to read, write, draw and paint. Like many Australians we travel extensively finding our interests are stimulated by visits to Asia as well as Europe.
    John has self-published his 'Brief History of South Paddington' about our area of Sydney. You may want to check out his account of the locality. Jenny loves working and relaxing in the courtyard garden and hopes you too can joy it.
    We've had quite a number of very successful home exchanges already and look forward to more.

Where is it?


Historic Paddington is an inner city suburb of Sydney with rows of terrace houses with filigree iron balconies, a 25 minute walk to the city and the harbour. We are very near the bus to the city, Bondi beach as well as spectacular Watsons Bay and other beaches. Just a few walking minutes away are shops, restaurants, cinemas, parks, sporting venues and many small art galleries and specialised boutiques. The airport is 25 minutes away by taxi - longer in traffic - and the area has direct access to expressways and tunnels to greater Sydney and beyond. Central railway station is not far away.
