About our home

Our home is a 2 bedroom house is situated in Sydney's inner suburbs, perfect for a swap with a couple or a couple with a child or an adult friend.

More about the house ... The main bedroom has a queen bed, the 2nd bedroom is has a single loft bed & a double pull out sofa bed. We have a small office equipped with Apple Mac & Wifi throughout the house & garden. The kitchen/dining room is light & airy & opens to a wrap around deck with outdoor dining table perfect for entertaining on a warm summer night. This overlooks a small private grassy backyard with a thriving herb garden. The modern bathroom has a spa bath & small laundry.

Some of the house features are its high ornate ceilings, wooden floors, espresso machine, gas barbecue on the deck, wifi internet access & Apple Mac for you to use.

Our home is conveniently located in Sydney's inner western suburbs just 8.5km (a 15 min drive / 15 min by train) to the city center. In just a 10 min drive away you could be on the harbour taking in the views as you walk/run "The Bay Run". Ashfield has a local train station which is a pleasant 10 min stroll with frequent services to the city. Sydney's popular tourist spots such as Darling Harbour, the Harbour Bridge & Opera House are all within an easy, fuss free commute. We are also centrally located if you are heading west to bush walk in the Blue Mountains or north to the beaches such as Palm Beach or beautiful Kuringai National Park. If you don't fancy cooking too much, Ashfield itself is well known for its cheap & authentic Chinese dumpling restaurants & green grocers & is a gourmet's delight. There's also 2 local pubs which have excellent bistros at reasonable prices. Cosmopolitan cafe & deli culture are also within walking distance. Or why not just come home to a quiet barbecue on the deck as the sun sets over the backyard. We live in a quiet, tree lined street surrounded by 2 large parks. One is a sporting oval which hosts cricket in summer & soccer in winter. The shopping mall is just 2 blocks away. You'll want for nothing in our little neck of the woods!
