The space

A traditional Aussie federation house fully renovated in 2014 with an advanced automation (Home control) system.
Everything is new and comfortable with a massive full featured kitchen, large outdoor entertaining area and a 300sqm backyard.

Double glazed windows and extra sound and heat insulation in both internal and external walls help ensure a peaceful night's sleep.

Quality includes new mattress/pillows, networked TV, WIFI designed for dozens of devices, brilliant appliances everywhere, and even the blinds rise and lower automatically with the sun.

The house has computerised lights and in-ceiling speakers, and the window blinds are electronically controlled. The lights know when to turn themselves off (and sometimes on) and the blinds know to shut at sunset.

Your bedroom uses the same technology, so for example: you can enjoy listening to music in your room from your iPhone or Android. You can also download an app to control all the lights, blinds and audio from those phones or tablets as well.

Everything is of the quality you would hope to have in your own home and it gives the me great pleasure to have others enjoy it too.

(The walls now have artwork on them, hard to photograph as guests within).

The frangipani and jacaranda trees are increasingly rarer characteristics of older Australian homes, and look beautiful over summer. The purple flowers of the jacaranda are already blossoming in mid October.

Interaction with guests

I live in the house and work 1km away so I can often be on hand to help you with any other queries, travel advice or general support. I am eager to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

I was born in Sydney and like to go out and travel, so have good knowledge of Sydney and Australia.

I am pretty open minded and would be happy for guests who want their privacy. There is enough space in the house to allow for everyone to enjoy their personal space.

Excellent place to stay near Hurstville. It's a small, considered oasis in a land of apartments. I really recommend this house, and the host Peter, who is a good man.

Me and my friend stayed for 3 months at Peter's place and it was just amazing. The house is super cool. Public Transport is nearby and takes about 25 minutes into the city. Peter is a great host and we had a really good time.

Beautiful house, located close to shops and transport. Peter is very kind and accommodating, making sure you are comfortable and looked after. The kitchen is one of the most well equipped I have ever seen and the BBQ outside is incredible! Good WiFi and Foxtel in every room are cherries on top of an amazing home. We stayed for 3 months and felt right at home.

Pete is a fantastic host, always going the extra mile to make sure you're comfortable in his home. He also showed me around Sydney and gave a great guidebook for local food. The rooms are large, the kitchen is amazing, and the house is clean. There are tech options for each room eg playing music, Netflix, etc. Public transport is easily accessed and only 20-30 mins into the city by train. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend.

Hi I'm Peter, a happy, nerdy, software developer and have my own business in Sydney. I love to tinker with technology, go to the beach, movies, music and of course love good food.

I actually grew up next door to the house I now own.. so I know the area and neighbours really well. I love to travel and REALLY love my unique home. It's unique, very me, and I love to show others what makes it awesome.

Airbnb started out as a bit of an experiment when looking for a housemate, I am fairly new to this so here's hoping it's a fun ride.
