Our friendly vegetarian home is located close to Maroubra beach. Buses to the city stop near the front door, and the bedrooms have great views to the sea. The kitchen, bathroom, lounge and garden are communal and set up for a relaxing and comfortable stay.

The space

We have two bedrooms available for guests. The king single room is modestly sized and is east facing over the garden, with lovely sea views. Please note that the bed is best suited to single guests. We have bedding and towels available if you don't have your own. The bathroom is communal and clean.

The kitchen is spacious and well appointed for preparing meals, with an additional bar fridge for guest use. The household is vegetarian, so we ask that you respect this condition if eating-in. We occasionally watch films together and there is a projector in the lounge room, hooked up to a decent sound system on which you can also play records or connect your own devices.

Guest access

You are welcome to share the communal areas in the house, and to make use of the garden and laundry facilities. We have a bokashi bin for food scraps and there are rubbish and recycling facilities out the front.

There is a Hills Hoist in the garden (shared with our downstairs neighbours) and there are indoor clotheslines in the laundry in case it rains. For relaxing at home we have an eclectic library of DVDs and plenty of good books which you're welcome to read while you are staying with us.

Interaction with guests

We enjoy a shared meal or watching a movie together when we're around, but you can choose to spend time with us or not, as suits your plans. We have a (non-vegetarian) kitten who is very cute and likes human company, but please bear in mind that she must stay indoors. We have previously found postgraduate students to be a good fit, as our home is best suited to mindful guests who are not just looking for a hotel experience.

Other things to note

The grass verge down to our front gate from the footpath is a bit steep, and there are also steps up to our front door, so access for guests without full mobility would be difficult. Being an older house, there are some great period features such as high ceilings, stained glass windows and polished floorboards, but the rooms are not soundproofed. The king single bedroom is off the lounge, so although we are not noisy by nature there may be some ambient sound from the use of this space. Finally, our home is shoe-free inside and our kitten isn't allowed outside, so please don't let her escape!

David and Fahimah are very kind and helpful. The house is cozy, spacious and just as described, with stunning sea view from the private room. The house is located in a quiet area with convenient transport to the city, while beach and supermarkets are within walking distance, about 10-15 mins walk. Definitely recommend to travelers who love who good music and vegetarian cuisine!

We are a married couple with a friendly cat, sharing our vegetarian home in the beach suburb of Maroubra, Sydney.

We travel as often as we can, both in Australia and overseas, and we love to get out and about in nature - even if it's just a weekend away in our trusty camper van.

We are open, honest people and we like to think of our home as an environment where people can connect and share rather than just as a space to eat and sleep.

We participated in the early days of a similarly themed community website, so we are used to hosting guests from around the world and we look forward to having you to stay!
