It's the ideal home for all. Be it that you're traveling from overseas or you're here due to activities at the University or the hospital; attending shows at the Enmore theatre; or Carriage Works. It's also the ideal home for exploring Sydney in every direction for those here to explore. You’ll love my place because of the the convenience to everything you want. Plus the comfy bed and friendliness. The room is spacious & comfortable. It's a great place for any reason you need an Air BnB.
I live here - I will keep the house fresh and homely. The feedback has always been that it is a comfortable home away from home.
This is an old house, quite typical of the area, and every effort is taken by me to keep the house homely, clean & tidy. My house is right in the heart of Newtown. A retro styled house, which is comfortable, with character and personality.
Walking distance to cafes, music venues, bars, movies, concerts, restaurants & shops. Friendly and safe. Location location location - close to buses and trains. Newtown is the gateway to Sydney's quirky inner west - with the suburbs of Alexandria, Enmore, Marrickville, Erskineville, Redfern and Chippendale all within walking distance. There is always something interesting to see and do in this part of town. It takes around 10 - 15 mins to walk to Carriageworks.
Nearby you have Woolworths in Erskineville for shopping, just a few minutes walk, or IGA on King Street. Both are literally minutes away.
It's a 20 minute walk to Sydney University and a similar walk to The Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.
Buses are plentiful. You can go anywhere from King Street to:
Bondi Junction - catch the 352 from King Street.
City - several buses run to the city from King St or catch the train.
Inner West Suburbs - several buses run from King St.
Darling Harbour - bus to Railway Square, then walk down or catch the light rail
Beaches north side and south side from King Street:
* 370 bus takes you to Coogee
* M30 takes you to Mosman - walk down to Balmoral Beach
* 352 takes you to Bondi Junction, then switch to a different bus for the beach a few minutes away
Blue Mountains - catch the train to Central (3 stops) then switch to a train for the mountains

Occasionally, I have been asked if I can fit another bed in this room. Due to popular demand, I bought a single portable bed to go into this room when required. The settings are set for 2, if you require a room for more than 2, please send me a message prior to booking so I can adjust the settings. Thanks.

I love living in Newtown, its a suburb filled with life and creativity. That suits my personality. I created my own business centered around the live music scene in Sydney - in particular, for the independent musicians and performers.
I am a creative writer and enjoy all things creative. Conversing with others is a joy.
When you come to stay at my house, I will do my best to make it a home away from home.
