This is a Home away from Home. It's ideal, be it that you're traveling from overseas or you're here due to activities at the University or the hospital. Or attending shows at the Enmore theatre or Carriageworks. 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 the friendliness. It's a great place for any reason you need an Air BnB.

The space

I live here, and 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 ideal home a student or someone associated with the University or the nearby Hospitals to stay in for long term visits. I am very close to both Sydney University and the Royal Prince Alfred hospital. It is also ideal for short term visits as well. I'm just 15 mins from the airport.

This is an old house, quite typical of the area, and every effort is taken by me to keep the house homely, clean & tidy.

Walking distance to cafes, music venues, bars, movies, 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 about 10 - 15 mins to walk to Carriageworks.

Buses are plentiful. You can go anywhere from here to:
Bondi Junction
Inner West Suburbs
Beaches northside and southside
Blue Mountains (train)
Darling Harbour

Guest access

You are welcome to make this your Home whilst here. Feel free to use the living spaces, kitchen, bathroom and laundry.

Upon arrival, you will receive the WiFi password and you are welcome to use this whilst here.

There is a DVD player, but no TV access. Feel free to use the DVD player.

Interaction with guests

Feel free to ask questions about places to go to, or for directions. On the sideboard in the dining area, you will find maps & brochures of places to see & things to do.

I'm open to a cup of tea or coffee, or a red wine. Or join me when I watch a DVD. You are even welcome to attend any of the gigs that I stage. Don't feel like you have to be a stranger, but cool if you don't want it.

Other things to note

Long term or short term stays welcomed.

I work from home, though not all work is done from here. If I am out when you arrive, I'll make arrangements with you on where to find the key. If I'm working in the living area, it's quite fine for you to occupy the spaces at the same time.

It is a 3 bedroom house - 2 of the rooms are Air BnB rooms and I live in the other room. The bathroom is shared.

This is a great place to stay in one of our favourite areas - the inner west of Sydney. Kerri is lovely and easy to deal with, all communications quick and clear. The room is simple and comfortable and with breakfast included it was just what we needed for our overnight stay in town to attend an event. Kerri even got lactose free milk for me, very much appreciated. The location is fab, can walk to lots of cafes, bars, restaurants etc. Would definitely stay here again.

Kerri is a warm and welcoming host with a comfy room to rest in after your adventure through Newtown or wherever your adventure maybe. Convenient and central to King St. and all modes of transport yet located in a quiet neighbourhood so you can sleep comfortably. The tea is delicious and the breakfast Kerri provides is perfect. I truly appreciated my stay and will stay again when I plan another inner west "staycation".

I stayed with Kerri on very short notice, and the place was great - centrally located, cozy, and Kerri was very sweet when I asked about suggesting places to go and music to see.

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.
