Our home near Sydney Olympic Park, close to bus stops, marketplace, medical centre and multi-cuisine restaurants. We are looking for friendly, tidy female guests for short-term stays.
The single bedroom has an adjacent shared bathroom/toilet. The east-facing well lit room has a comfortable bed, a study table, ceiling fan and a side table. The room also has a built-in wardrobe.
The room, on the top floor of a two-storey house, has a leafy outlook. It has a single comfortable bed, a desk with lamp, a side table and ceiling fan. There is a mirrored wardrobe for your clothes and bags. The adjacent bathroom has a bathtub, toilet, vanity unit and shower recess. The bathroom is shared with my aged mother who lives in another bedroom.
Besides your bedroom and bathroom, you have access to the kitchen facilities, lounge and backyard.
Interaction with guests
We are mostly available in the evenings after 5pm on weekdays and home most weekends. We go to bed around 10pm and would appreciate quiet after this time. You must inform us if you are going to be back later than this hour. We respect our privacy as well as yours but at the same time would love to help you out with making your stay comfortable and smooth.
Other things to note
Newington has no railway station and you would need to take a bus from Strathfield or Parramatta or Sydney Olympic Park to get here. There are limited buses at night, last bus being around midnight.
1.Guests are expected to clean and maintain their rooms (bedroom and bathroom) in a tidy state.
2.If kitchen/laundry facilities are used, please tidy up after use and wash the dishes/utensils when done.
3.Dirty laundry should be placed in the laundry basket provided and you can use the washing machine when required. There is a clothes line in the backyard but you can also be provided with an internal drying line for rainy days.
4.This is an environment-friendly household. Please use water and electricity wisely, for example ensuring at least a near-full load for laundry, switching off appliances at the power point after use, taking short showers etc. Please recycle appropriately. We have a compost bin, worm farm and also a biogas system.
We are a married couple with one daughter, now empty-nesters. I am interested in all things sustainable and environmental and our living reflects this philosophy. My husband loves making movies but he works in risk management. We like a quiet,unhurried life where there is time for reflection and creativity.
