This studio is peaceful and separate from my house. It's a lovely simple space to chill out or do work/study while looking out onto the greenery and trees of my back garden. Nearby are cafes, three bus routes and Sydney Light Rail. There's on-street parking and good wi-fi is included. Note that access to the studio is via the house and there is some aircraft noise. I enjoy meeting and orientating international guests as well as welcoming locals. I own a cat :)

The space
The city meets country in this studio. Located in my back garden, it is surrounded by windows with an outlook of greenery and trees.

The studio is clean and comfortable inside with a queen size bed, toilet and shower, and living area that includes two bucket chairs and TV. You can relax in your own space. If you have to do work, I can also set up table and chair for this.

The studio is separate from the house. The house needs to be used for access, breakfast and cooking. But I am an experienced host and are conscious of the importance of privacy.

My suburb is in the Italian area of Sydney and specialises in restaurants and cafes. We also have excellent weekend markets focusing on food (Orange Grove Market), local art (Glebe Markets) and eclectic 2nd hand goods and clothing (Rozelle Markets). For those who enjoy walking, there are beautiful parks along the shores of Sydney Harbour, a movie cinema and an Anytime Fitness gym nearby.

I also have another listing, Chic Room in Welcoming Home. This room is part of my house and the detailed photographs of my lovely 1880's workers cottage can be seen on this listing. You pass through this house to access the cabin. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen and sit out on the verandah that overlooks the garden.

In summary, the studio offers:
* a high quality queen sized bed
* own toilet & shower (with Sydney's lovely clean water & solar hot water heater)
* a living space with two bucket chairs and TV
* free Wi Fi
* a microwave, bar fridge and jug
* nice outdoor space on the verandah for warmer days
* breakfast
* use of kitchen in the house
* on street parking at no extra charge
* a heater.

Note that I have recently re-arranged the room. So it looks a little different to the photos, but it is definitely to the same standard. I am currently organising for new photographs to be taken.

Cereal, milk, toast and fruit are on offer for breakfast. Tea and coffee is also available.

Possible challenges are:
* a friendly cat (but popular with guests who like cats)
* access to the studio is via the house
* some aircraft noise (we are 6 under one of the 6 flight paths into Sydney airport and about 6 km from the airport; the cabin is noise insulated, but there can be some noise when the windows are open in warm weather). There is a noise curfew from 11 pm to 6 am. The studio probably won't suit light sleepers who want to sleep outside the noise curfew.
* I aim to provide clean, comfortable and simple accommodation. It is quite different to a 5 star hotel or a place that would win prizes.
* the hot water temperature in the shower is about 46 degrees Celsius... most of my guests have liked the shower.

Guest access
The studio now has a kettle, microwave and bar fridge. You are also welcome to use the kitchen in the main house. It has an older gas stove which works well, but needs to be lit by hand. Guests who have experience with this type of stove are welcome to use it. As well as the gas stove, the main kitchen has a microwave and a fridge. Washing up is by hand.

You also can share the house's verandah that can be sunny or shaded by means of a retractable awning. The verandah can be used for relaxing as well as eating meals. You will need to have footwear on the verandah as its surface is a little rough (but it meets safety standards and is still a lovely spot). Meals can also be eaten in the kitchen/living area that looks out onto the verandah and garden.

Happy to put on a load of washing for you washing every 3-4 days. I'll want you to peg it on the line, if that's okay. Drying is by means of pegging on a clothesline (it seems like the right thing to do in this warm dry country).

I like connecting with nature, history and culture, and hope to visit places like New Zealand, India, Europe and Singapore. I like to read crime fiction that critiques the society we live in as well as non-fiction on the same subject. My favorite shows include all of Shaun Micallef's shows, most of the Chaser, The Castle, Roy & HG, The Wire, The Bill, Spooks, Call the Midwife, Little Britain, The Young Ones, Allo Allo (1970's). I love creative food. I respect privacy and diversity. The most important thing is to provide my guests with decent, comfortable accommodation. However, I am interested in your background and story if you are up for a chat.
