A two bedroom (both doubles), modern, split level flat is available in the Syndey suburb of Croydon Park. Croydon Park is in the Inner West of Sydney and about 17km from the CBD.
The large master double bedroom comes with air conditioning and fitted wardrobes with space cleared for you to unpack if you wish. The second bedroom is a reasonable sized double room, again with wardrobe space and a small furnished balcony with pleasant leafy suburban views. There is a fly screen on the balcony door and a fan provided for a cool nights sleep during summer bookings. A single mattress and bedding is also available for a fifth person should they wish to sleep in the downstairs living area. There is space in the living area for an inflatable double mattress if you have one, the apartment can actually sleep six in comfort if needbe - if you are in a group of six and would like an airbed provided please message me and I will get one.
Bedding and towels are provided for all guests.
The bathroom upstairs is fitted with a spa bath and separate shower, a second toilet is located downstairs off the laundry room.
My large open plan living area will seat six on sofas, and six at the dining table. This area is air conditioned and also contains a very effective Rinnai gas heater so a pleasant temperature can be maintained no matter what the outside conditions are.
Off the main living area is a modern kitchen, with new dishwasher, gas hob, oven and microwave. You will have full use of a selection of cooking utensils and crockery. The laundry room contains a modern washing machine, drying racks are provided and there is ample washing line space outside on the balcony on a fold down drying rack.
The whole apartment and balcony is supplied with strong ADSL2 WiFi. You are free to use my desktop PC in the lounge if you do not have your own computer with you. Rather than a conventional TV setup I favour using the PC with a projector and a freestanding 80” widescreen. I have a few hundred DVDs available, and many more movies and TV shows available on the PC. So should you find yourself confined by terrible weather you hopefully won't get bored.
The large sunny balcony seats eight at the main table and a further group on adjoining benches. There is a Weber Q320 bbq that guests can use. Should you be visiting friends in Sydney you will have the option of being hosts yourselves!
Shade is provided by a large movable umbrella. Should you feel the need to knock out some gruelling chin ups or dips then have a look round the corner of the balcony and feel the burn on my "power tower" (maybe you will get more use out of it than I do…?).
The apartment is conveniently located over a medium sized IGA (supermarket), you can do a light shop without ever being exposed to the sky - which I think is pretty marvellous on rainy days.
Access to the city is via trains from either Croydon or Ashfield stations, each approximately 25 minutes walk away, alternatively a bus that goes to Ashfield stops right outside the apartment. Croydon Park itself will cater to most tastes should you not feel like wandering too far for dinner; my personal favourite being the Lebanese place at the end of the road. It has a great vibe, always seems to be full and has incredibly attentive staff - the food is pretty good too…
There is ample street parking available on Hampton Street, you will nearly always get a spot right outside the flat. If you are coming on motorbikes I can provide up to 6 undercover, secure bike spaces in the underground car park.
No pets (sorry, am allergic).
No loud music after 9.00pm, I get on very well with my neighbors and would like to keep it that way.
Please use common sense and respect for my property and possessions. I live here.
