Perfect for business travellers and friends travelling together. This is a large suite in a beautiful setting with pool and stunning views.
It's only 6.5kms to the CBD and there's a city bus at the door.
As well as large private bedroom suites with ensuite bathrooms stocked with hotel-style amenities our Airbnb guests have access to a kitchen and sitting room which they share with fellow Airbnb guests. It's just like a tiny, boutique hotel, but with all the comforts of home.
Awake to birdsong, rainforest views and breakfast by the pool. The space is self-contained and gorgeous with private guests' sitting room and guests' kitchen, BBQ, multiple outdoor lounging and dining areas and a huge rainforest garden to explore.
This rainforest retreat is in the lower part of a house built into the hillside on the shores of Sydney harbour in 1968. The space is cool in summer and warm in winter. This listing is for the bedroom labelled 'Poolside Room' on the floor plan.
This bedroom has a large ensuite bathroom with shower, queen bed and single sofa bed with high quality linens and plenty of space for your clothes.
Your sitting room leads onto a covered lounging and dining area and then to the pool, sunny lounging area and down to the rainforest with tiered sunning and meditation decks and treehouse. From there it leads directly to a park on the Sydney Harbour foreshore.
I like to create lovely spaces for humans that deliver peace, comfort, privacy, efficiency and a sense of fun. With this in mind, I've stocked the scrupulously clean room with high quality linens, generous toiletries and endless supplies of towels.
I'm looking forward to making your stay in Sydney memorable. I hope that I can use my years of experience as a business and luxury leisure traveller to make your stay comfortable, efficient and fun and help you experience an aspect of Sydney that tourists rarely see.
SECURITY - HOUSE ALARM AND VIDEO/AUDIO SURVEILLANCE
Alarm: The interior of the property is fitted with a back to base monitored alarm system. Instructions for the operation of this system are included in both the House Manual and the Arrival Directions. It is extremely simple. Please note that this system does not capture or record any visual or audio information, it simply detects motion.
Exterior Surveillance: There are 3 cameras covering the exterior of the property and 1 within the non-guest area of the property which record video and audio and store and upload to the cloud in real time. Note that tampering or removing these cameras will not prevent the information already recorded from being transmitted and stored. The actual location of all exterior cameras will be shown to you at check-in. There is no surveillance inside the listing nor in the backyard/pool area.
These cameras feature a two way audio feed, so I can speak to you, and you me via them if necessary.
We have the usual household safety measures; window locks, electrical safety switches on all switchboards including outdoor lighting, approved child safe pool fence, self-closing doors with 1.5m handles for all doors to the pool area, smoke and CO2 detectors in all rooms, temperature limiter on hot water, non-slip safety mats under rugs and fire extinguishers and fire blanket. However, we don't have a stair gate to upstairs, the cupboards aren't lockable and there are still a million ways for a small unsupervised child or a very stupid adult to injure themselves.
The back yard is made up of stairs and decks which can be slippery, particularly after rain.
Breakfast supplies and tea and coffee are included in your rate.
I provide snacks and fruit in the kitchen for you to nibble on while you're here. They aren't meant to be a substitute for meals and are to be consumed on-site.
PETS & WILDLIFE
We have two cats, George and Denny, who have enough sense to stay away from the guest area unless you welcome them. They don't 'hang out' in the downstairs area, so the rooms are quite safe for anyone with a cat allergy.
Guests have access to private sitting room with Foxtel IQ , a guest-only kitchen, solar-heated swimming pool, BBQ area with large Weber gas BBQ and a range of interesting and comfy outdoor dining and lounging areas with stunning views of the Sydney Harbour foreshore rainforest.
There's also parking for one guest car on the property and free street parking. The on-site guest parking is on a first-come, first served basis. We have three Airbnb rooms so if you want the parking spot, book early and let me know at the time of booking.
Interaction with guests
The guest area is downstairs and I live upstairs. I work full time and sometimes work from home. I'm happy to help you plan your time in Sydney over a glass of wine or a tea when I am available.
I require the names of all guests in your party at the time you book.
The guest in whose name the booking is made must be physically present at check-in unless previously agreed.
Guests booking a Private Room may not entertain visitors without prior agreement from the Host.
CHECK-IN AND CHECK-OUT TIMES
Check-in is after 3pm, check-out is before 11am.
Guests who remain past the 11am checkout time without prior agreement agree to pay a late checkout fee of $50 for any part of the first hour and $50 per hour for each additional hour as well as any additional costs incurred by the Host in facilitating the Guests' removal from the premises and/or caused by their late departure.
Please close and lock all doors and windows and turn on the alarm when you're not in residence.
Smoking is allowed outside only in the designated smoking areas.
Do not prop open the pool gates or door or make any attempt to override the self-closing door mechanism.
Please clean the BBQ after use. Cleaning wipes and spray are provided.
USING THE KITCHEN
Please use the exhaust fan in the kitchen when cooking.
Please don't deep fry in the kitchen, it's a fire hazard. Stir frying is ok.
Please follow the recycling, composting and waste disposal instructions in the house manual.
PROTECTING THE FURNITURE
Please place coasters under bottles and glasses.
Please clean up any spills immediately.
Do not sit on the furniture in wet clothing.
Extinguish all candles before leaving the building or your room.
The house has a sophisticated alarm system. You'll be given a remote to operate it during your stay. If you lose the remote you will be charged for the cost of replacing the remote and reprogramming the system.
Instructions to operate the alarm system are in the House Manual.
FAKE TAN - [ A substance so annoying it gets its own paragraph ]
Fake tanners rub off on towels and sheets. My towels and sheets are white. The dyes in fake tanning products do not wash out using ordinary washing temperatures and detergents and the chemicals and temperatures needed to shift them destroy sheets and towels, as well as wasting hours of time dealing with the mess. Sometimes fake tanners won't wash out at all. So, if you must dye yourself orange, please either bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels and use them instead of mine or be prepared to take the trashed items with you and be charged for replacements.
Laundering and replacing linen more frequently than weekly during your stay will incur an additional fee of $25 per linen change.
Only toilet paper and human waste is to be flushed down the toilet.
There are drying racks in each bedroom and you're welcome to use washer, dryer and clothesline upstairs. You'll be given a key to access the laundry from outside.
Please keep the noise down after 10pm and before 7am, especially outside.
Do not make any noise in the Guests' sitting room after 10pm unless you have the agreement of all other guests in residence.
请您务必阅读您行程计划中的“交通指南及小贴士”(Directions and Helpful Tips)部分。按照指示来走即可。请提前告诉我们您预计到达的时间、航班号,以及是否需要停车位。
吸烟只可在室外指定吸烟区域。这些区域有“允许吸烟”(Smoking Permitted) 的标示牌。
黄色垃圾桶 - 各种容器[回收代码标记在黄色盖子的内侧]
蓝色垃圾桶 - 干净的废纸和干净的纸板
红色垃圾 - 所有无法回收或用于堆肥的垃圾
I love to create beautiful spaces for humans which delight and deliver peace, comfort, privacy and efficiency with a sense of fun. As a seasoned business traveller who's spent far too much time in hotels, I've developed an aversion to giant towels marinated in fabric softener, mean little shards of shrink-wrapped soap, toilet paper origami, shower gels that could degrease a sea otter, coat hangers that require Tetris-like manipulations to unleash their hanging power and bio-hazardous pillow shams. With this in mind, I've put a lot of thought into creating an accommodation experience that avoids inflicting these hospitality sins on my guests.
