If the second bedroom is required, the additional guest rate of $40/guest/night ($50/night high season) applies. The 2nd bedroom is never rented out separately to other guests if not required by you.
The place is business friendly with reliable Wi-Fi internet that has good speed and large capacity partitioned on your own guest network. Wi-Fi printing is available and the living area can double as an office.
SHARED: I, your host, also lives in the house, so areas outside your private space are shared… kitchen, back deck/BBQ, laundry, yard etc. Guest AccessThe kitchen is shared with your host, but you have your own fridge to yourself as well as your own cupboards for storing groceries etc. A table and chairs for two are included in your private living area or there is a full, extendable dining table that seats 6-8 for larger parties and families in the shared space. You are also welcome to use the shaded deck with BBQ and outdoor table for 6 people, and enjoy the spacious yard.
A full-size laundry with washing machine and outdoor clothes line is available for your use; and so you can travel lightly, you are also welcome to use beach umbrellas, beach towels, cooler and chairs for your beach outings and picnics. Interaction with GuestsThe house offers a great balance of privacy and accessible local knowledge and interaction for singles, couples and smaller families/groups.
I am a traveled, single professional who looks forward to welcoming you as a guest. I am available to give you information and guidance you may need to make the best of your stay on Sydney's wonderful northern beaches, but also respectful of your privacy.

Getting here by bus
Stop 22 is the nearest bus stop, about 300 meters away. It is at the corner of Gladstone Street and Barrenjoey Rd.

Other Things to NoteSHARED HOUSE: The listing is under "Entire home/apt", but the house is shared with your host. "Entire home/apt" was chosen because of limitations if the listing was under "Private room" e.g. that 2 bedrooms are available but never rented separately; your own private bathroom; your own private living room, exclusively for your use, etc.
Note 2: The shared areas are kitchen, deck and laundry ... but the main bedroom, second bedroom (when booked), bathroom and living area are all together on one side of the house for your use alone and affording you privacy.
Note 3: The second bedroom is never booked out separately to other guests if you don't book it. When you stay here, you will be sharing just with me, your host.
