The SpaceOur house is located on the Princes Hwy in Sydenham, a 13 min drive from the Domestic Airport (pretty handy, huh?) and don't worry, due to our awesome double glazed windows, you can't hear a thing from outside.
Our house has character, the good kind. It is adorned with designer wall paper - a new mood for every room! Wade likes to make things, so we have pieces of recycled and handmade furniture and items scattered throughout the house and courtyard.
Your private bedroom has reverse cycle air conditioning, brand new ridiculously comfy bed, ample pillows, fresh linen, feather quilt, fluffy towels, and wardrobe space, iron and ironing board - everything you need!
We have free unlimited ADSL2+ wi-fi, washing machine, dryer (only in rainy weather), clothes line, courtyard with TV and a BBQ, all of which you are free to use. There is unrestricted on-street parking, or easy access by public transport.
You can use our kitchen to cook in, or go out to one of the hundreds of restaurants and take-aways in nearby cultural epicentres of Newtown and Marrickville. A short bus trip or stroll will get you to these destinations, depending on your disposition. You'll find anything you're looking for and more, Indian, Thai, Pizza, Burgers, Italian, Modern Australian, Middle Eastern, African, pub food, cocktails, and the best thing is that these places are fairly cheap. Our hot tip is that Marrickville has some of the best Vietnamese restaurants in Sydney with Phõ to die for.
We have a dog named Lord Mikito Von Hendrix Columbus III, or Mak for short, who hangs out in the yard during the day, and inside if we're home. He's very gentle with a great playful personality. You don't have to play with him, but you do need to at least tolerate dogs.
ABOUT THE AREA/SURROUNDING AREAS: The Inner West is one of the most sort after places to live in Sydney. The area is alive with an incredible amount of culture and there is always something going on. The bonus with our place is that it is a friendly suburban area within walking distance to all the hot spots, and somewhere to relax if you want to escape the rat race. Guest AccessYou will have your own bedroom, use of the living areas (Kitchen including utensils, crockery, stove, kettle; Living room with TV, couch), bathroom with shower and bath, laundry facilities, fridge, free unlimited download Wifi, and BBQ. Basically, our house is your house.
You can also help yourself to tea and coffee. Interaction with GuestsWe are friendly social people and enjoy a good chat over a glass of wine and a meal. We are also more than happy to let you do your own thing if you prefer to keep to yourself. We can recommend places to eat and drink, and things to do around Sydney or even further afield in your travels. The NeighborhoodSydenham is a small suburb filled with great parks and super friendly people. Greet anyone on the street and a warm friendly "hello" will come right back at you. If you happen to meet our neighbour Kathy, she is likely to offer you a cup of coffee and home made Greek cake-things. We recommend drinking the coffee, (the cake, not so much). It's a true community here and it doesn't take long to feel right at home. Getting AroundThe Sydenham Train station is about a 5 min walk from our house and is one of the best in Sydney. You can reach the city in 7 minutes, Bondi Junction in 35, connections to the Western Suburbs, the Airport, or a 3 min ride into Marrickville or Erskineville where there are great places to eat and drink.There are also plenty of buses just outside our front door which can take you to the Eastern Beaches, Newtown, or the City. An UberX from our house to the Airport is usually about $15 and is a great alternative to taxis, and a ride into the city is approx $20. Other Things to NoteThe main entrance to our place is through the courtyard. We have a second entrance, so if you aren't comfortable meeting our dog without us home, you can use the front door which is just down the hall from your bedroom.
