Inner City Oasis. We live in the village of Glebe, Sydney's inner west, 15 minute bus ride to Sydney Opera House, The Rocks, Circular Quay, Harbour Bridge + many more attractions! Glebe is filled with vintage bookstores, cafes, restaurants - Polish, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian (we will share our secret one with you), Vegan, French - you will not go hungry! Saturday is the famous Glebe market - everything from vintage finds to up and coming new designers!
Our home is a sanctuary after a day of sightseeing. You can sit in the courtyard and be removed from the hustle and bustle of the city, a great place to unwind, surrounded by nature and a green space. In summer the courtyard offers a cool place to put your feet up with a glass of whatever is your 'pick up' drink. We have air-conditioning in both bedrooms, so in summer you can have a cool breeze soothing you to sleep and winter keeping you cosy warm. We have 2 lounges, therefore a place to have some space if you need to chill, while the rest of the traveler's want to watch TV. The lower floor is the living, kitchen, bathroom, laundry, outdoor deck and courtyard. The upper floor is both bedrooms and the balcony. Please note, this is not suited for children as we have steep stairs and this is not a child friendly home. If we get requests from a family we take each on a case by case basis and cannot guarantee your booking will be accepted.
