Homely, convenient and spacious private room - STRICTLY FOR NON SMOKERS ONLY!
Our top floor apartment is sunny & warm in winter, cool & airy in summer. The perfect base for exploring Sydney - short walk to trains and buses!
Tranquil gardens surround the building. You'll hear the crickets chirping at night, while being just a short stroll to everything.
We pride ourselves on providing a clean and tidy home for your stay. Please leave our home in the same condition you found it in. Any dirt, spills or mess must be cleaned up promptly.
Whether you're coming from the other side of the world, or the other side of the country, you'll feel right at home.
Your room will be clean, with fresh sheets and towel. Shampoo, conditioner, body wash and soap are also provided. If there is anything else you need, we have a large Coles Supermarket just down the road, open till midnight every day.
There is a desk and chair in your room, whether you need to get some work done, update your social networks or writing a novel!
An international power board is also provided, so no need to bring bulky travel adapters. If you need a phone charger or cable, just let me know.
Fast WiFi is available all throughout our apartment, balcony and part of the garden. There's nothing more annoying than being told the WiFi doesn't work in your room (it happened to me in a few places), so no need to worry!
I'm happy to help you plan your trip, give you some recommendations on places to visit and things to do. I was born in Sydney and lived here all my life, so if you have any questions, just ask!
Your private room is just for you and won't be shared with anyone.
You will share the bathroom with only my girlfriend Amy and I. Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are provided in the shower. We do not provide toothbrushes and toothpaste.
You can use the kitchen for light cooking only (heating food in the microwave, boiling water, etc). The lounge and dining rooms are also shared with guests.
We have an internal laundry and washing machine. Please ask us for help if you need to do any washing. Our room and study/office are private and cannot be accessed by guests.
we provide flexible check in and check out, however our days are usually busy. So please let me know when you plan to arrive in your initial message, so we can confirm our availability and make plans.
If we have another booking on the same day as you're leaving, check out will be 12pm so the room can be prepared for the next guest. You're welcome to leave your bags here while you go out.
Interaction with guests
As much or as little as you like and our schedules permit! At least one of us will generally be around, so we're happy to have a chat with guests and help out with any information, directions or recommendations.
We love meeting new travellers and sharing stories about places we've been and places we'd love to visit. I enjoy food, coffee, photography, nature and travelling.
If you have a busy work schedule and not much time, we totally understand the need for privacy and won't get in your way.
Other things to note
Since our working schedule is flexible, if you would like to go on a tour or short trip out of Sydney, I can help to either plan a personal tour with you, or find a suitable group tour to join.
I have a car and depending on my commitments, would be happy to help you visit some further away places for a fee, such as:
• Northern Beaches - Manly to Palm Beach
• National Parks
• Blue Mountains (3 Sisters, Bush walking, Spectacular views)
• South Coast (Seacliff Bridge, Wollongong, Kiama Blowhole and coastal towns)
• Central Coast (Gosford, Terrigal, etc)
• Lake Macquarie, Hunter Valley Wineries, Newcastle
Please let me know what you would like to see and do, and we can plan a trip to meet your expectations and budget.
You will be provided with a beautiful, clean and tidy room and home to enjoy. Please treat it with respect and keep it that way.
Please keep the following in mind, for the enjoyment of everyone and our neighbours:
• STRICTLY NO SMOKING, DRUGS OR DRUNKEN BEHAVIOUR ANYWHERE, INSIDE OR OUTSIDE! If you're a smoker, into partying or getting drunk, sorry we cannot accommodate you so do not book.
• Photo ID must be shown at checkin (passport or Australian Driver's licence).
• Please leave your shoes in the laundry, by the front door. We have clean, soft pure wool carpet that is lovely to walk on.
• No loud music, noise or phone calls. Since we live in an apartment, we must be mindful of our neighbours and keep noise to a minimum at all times.
• Please clean up after yourself if you use the kitchen and tell us if you would like to use any appliances.
• No visitors allowed without prior approval.
• Any damage must be paid for before checking out.
Hi, I'm Mark and I live in Sydney Australia with my girlfriend, Amy.

We both love food and travelling. When visiting a new city, we'll happily walk around all day and love seeing what normal daily life is like.
