About this listing

This house is a very pleasant place with all mod cons - FOXTEL. Netflix. Stan. Wifi. Stereo. Tastefully decorated in the heart of the best suburb in Sydney. Garden. Pub 1 minute away with great food. A stones throw from all major transport networks - buses and trains close by going all over Sydney.

The space

It's a lovely space. Brand new furniture fresh paint. An impeccable townhouse at the quieter end of king street with leafy surrounds - leafy private garden out back, leafy yard out front. Communal area out front of front yard for accessing garage and other houses in complex.

The space is light and airy, modern yet cosy and homely - a place you can definitely retire to after a day absorbing everything this amazing city has to offer.

I have seen more expensive houses for a lot less house nearby. If a pleasant and convenient space with all mod cons and a real working home (so it has everything you need), are important to you, come relax and enjoy yourself.

Upstairs TV is not connected to an antenna - only to wi fi network - so it has netflix or watch DVDs. Downstairs TV has the full monty - foxtel, netflix, stan, DVD/PlayStation.

One comment on additional beds - I do advertise the house as being for up to 6, but there are only two proper beds in the bedrooms. The additional beds, if they are needed, are self inflating camping mattresses on the floor. These are not normal spring bed mattresses, but self inflating floor lying camping mattresses. Just wanted to be clear on that so nobody is disappointed when they arrive.

I'm proud of this space and respect my wonderful neighbours - so if you are coming to muck up and party hard in the house all night noisily - try the next place on air bnb. But if you can respect it, and the neighbours - I'd love to share what I think is an awesome little corner of Sydney with you.

I provide a very detailed suburb/house guide on arrival with all transport tips, eating and drinking tips, markets and parks, swimming pools etc etc.

Guest access

Full access to whole house. Parking can be arranged on request - its a bit of a hassle so if you need it please give me fair warning.

Interaction with guests

I will only be available by telephone or email.

The neighbourhood

Its Newtown. Its the throbbing soul of Sydney. If you took Newtown out of Sydney, Sydney would be a lifeless corps. Its simply the funkiest, coolest, most fun place in sydney. Newtown has the highest density of culinary choices in Sydney, with restaurants and cafes of every nationality on the globe nearly - Sydney siders come to Newtown to eat out...... Heaps of cool pubs - hipster cafes up the wazoo, graffiti on every corner (the cool stuff, not the messy stuff). Parks, Swimming pools, University - its awesome.

Getting around

I provide a detailed "how to" guide when you get here. Its about 12 minutes walk to either Newtown train station or St Peters train station - from there you can go ANYWHERE in sydney really easily. Buses also are everywhere going everywhere.

Other things to note

The house can accommodate 6 at a push with a double camping floor mattress (but it is a push and you would have to be cosy with your guests!). Ideal for 4 though.

Davids place is in a good location easy 15 minute walk to Newtown Station with many great restaurants to choose from. My only negative was the third bed a mattress in lounge room was a bit underwhelming when I booked I expected it to more substantial. However the two bedrooms were clean and comfortable.

We have a great stay in Davids'home but if you expect a clean place don't be really enthusiast about that. The location really great the neighbour was really nice. Instead of the dust everywhere we enjoy the location.
