If you are single, a couple, a business traveller, having a holiday, visiting relatives or friends then you have found the right spot. We offer you a large, comfortable and private bedroom with a private bathroom and private entrance. In addition there is a small kitchenette in the garage. Your room overlooks a sunny garden. You can explore shops, cafes, national Parks, hiking, lovely beaches, Macquarie University, movie cinemas, iceskating rink etc. The city express bus is only a 3 minutes walk
Your private bedroom, and private ensuite is located down a private hallway away from the rest of the house. It is sunny, quiet and tranquil with a lovely leafy outlook.
The large bed is queen-sized with a really comfortable mattress and fresh new pillows. It has two mahogany bedside tables with lamps and storage and a matching mahogany chest of drawers for your use. There is also a walk- in-wardrobe with hangers for your hanging and storage requirements. A solid desk sits under one of the Floor to ceiling windows which allows for lovely views through to a garden and beyond to the tennis court. There is also a comfortable leather reclining armchair for you to relax in to watch tv, read or have a cup of tea/coffee.
A private modern ensuite bathroom with a rainfall shower and toilet is for your private use. We will supply complimentary shampoo, soap and toilet paper with clean fresh bath towels, a bath mat and hand towel. Please ask if you need fresh towels. For longer stays we offer fresh towels each week and new linen each fortnight, or more frequently by request.
You also have a walk- in-wardrobe to hang your clothes and store your things. There is also an iron, ironing board, additional heater, shoe racks and hangers for you to use.
Your spacious bedroom has new carpet. It is equipped with a small flatscreen TV, DVD machine and portable music system. We have a large DVD collection for you to enjoy.
We have also provided you with a kettle, teacups, coffee mugs, milk, coffee and tea.
Your room opens onto a private hallway which then opens into a loungeroom which you are most welcome to use.
Our street is quiet and very safe with lots of free parking day and night. You might prefer to drive down our tree lined driveway and park right at the house. You are welcome to do this, however it can be a bit tight getting cars out of the driveway when we are all home at the same time. My recommendation would be to park on the road for the most part, but use our driveway to unpack and reload your car on arrival/departure or on rainy days.
We are really looking forward to having you stay with us. Our friends and family that have stayed over the years never want to go! We hope you feel the same way too:)
**NEW ADDITIONS at no additional cost**
For your use in an adjoining space within the garage, I have provided the following so to ensure that you have some basic kitchen facilities. Please note that this space is not intended for anything other than simple microwave type meals. Most guests prefer to eat out at the many local restaurants and cafes. If you choose on some nights not to eat at our local eateries, please ensure that no food is eaten in the bedroom. There is a small table and two chairs in the kitchenette that you are welcome to use.
*small oven and grill
*coffee machine and kettle
*crockery and cutlery
*table and chairs.
*treadmill if you are keen:)
**We would kindly request that you do not eat in the bedroom and have provided a small table and chairs for you in the kitchenette area should you choose to eat at home**
As the family kitchen is unavailable to guests, This mini-kitchenette space, in the adjoining garage, gives you the option to be more self-contained if you would like to be. There is no sink/plumbing, however, we do supply washing detergent, a washing up tub and a sponge so you are able to wash up using the tap nearby. We appreciate how you value your privacy and hope that these recent additions will make your experience in our home even better.

We hope you enjoy your spacious bedroom, ensuite, walk -in-robe, private hallway and kitchenette. The other areas photographed are shared areas with my family and friends.

There are many local cafes and restaurants for you to dine at. We eat out regularly and can recommend many places for breakfast, brunch, lunch, morning/afternoon teas and dinner.
For microwave type meals, we have supplied a space for you to use in the adjoining garage. This includes your own brand new mini fridge, microwave, small grill, cutlery, cooking utensils, crockery and I have just purchased a single hot plate for you to use.

Please ask if you have any questions. I will provide you with a house manual and guide books with lots of helpful information and local information.
We appreciate the need to wind down and relax after a busy day siteseeing, visiting relatives or work so have provided a space that will give you privacy and a place to recharge and relax. Your room is quiet, private and located in a separate part of the house to everything else so it is unlikely that you will meet family members, other than myself on arrival.

The well equipped kitchenette is suitable for storing food and reheating simple meals. It is for your convenience to use as much as you like, but not suitable for gourmet meals.
We do offer a washing and drying service for guests who stay longer than a week. There is a small charge for this additional service.
We have a sweet, friendly small white fluffy moodle dog who sleeps most of the day in the same spot. He won't be visiting you though as we keep him in a seperate part of the house and he sleeps in our laundry at night time. It is unlikely that you will see him as he prefers the indoors and your room is a long way from where he spends his time.
If you would like to meet him then please let me know and I will organise it for you. He would love to meet you.

Hello. Thanks for taking a look at our listing. My profile photo is of myself and my husband Graham on holidays in Australia. Note- Graham's attempt at a holiday beard was unsuccessful:)
I love to travel and explore new places whether it be in Australia or overseas. I have been so fortunate to have travelled extensively and never tire of it. Australia is such a unique place and one that needs some time to explore as it is so diverse and huge.
Living in Sydney is fantastic. I love it and am very happy to recommend things to do. I am a teacher and my husband is in finance. I look forward to having you visit us here in beautiful Sydney. Please feel free to ask me any questions and I will do my best to answer them. I very much look forward to meeting you soon.
