Front bedroom with private entrance. Two minutes from Newtown Station, cafes, restaurants, live music, bars and funky shops. Perfect for writers, poets, musicians. Two bathrooms. Comfortable, laid back home. Kitchen (no cooking of hot meals). Enjoy the privacy of your room and creative workspace in the heart of vibrant Newtown.

The space
With a private entrance, you'll get a very comfortable bed plus a relaxing work space. With free wifi (NBN), you'll be able to keep up with all your emails and music listening. There's a bar fridge, and coffee and tea facilities in your room. Some people baulk at the queen size LOFT BED and LADDER. It's very safe and well designed and such a great space creator. You also have your own bathroom, a garden room with skylight, accessed via the side door or from the back of the patio. The extended covered patio area catches the sun in winter and the roof and fan provide shade and cool in the summer.

Guest access
You will have access to downstairs rooms, the patio and yard and the skylight bathroom. You can access the upstairs share bathroom if needed. No regular hot meals to be cooked in the kitchen, but minimal food preparation is ok. My bedroom is off limits. Details of what's where are in the Welcome to Whitehorse book on the round table in your room.

Other things to note
I am a singer-songwriter and poet, so tend to sing and play guitar and piano most days. Please don't play my instruments unless we have a conversation about it. If you want to sit and relax, that's best done in the lounge/TV room, sometimes on the patio or in your bedroom. The kitchen/dining area is also my studio and workroom, so I tend to spend quite a bit of my time in there. This is why guests cooking hot meals regularly does not work in this space. Cereals, salads, sandwiches and an occasional hot meal by negotiation can work. There are so many affordable cafes and restaurants in Newtown! I tend to use them myself.

Location

Newtown, New South Wales, Australia

Newtown is vibrant, spontaneous, colourful and creative. I am 50 metres from King Street Newtown, which is full of cafés, restaurants, live music venues, pubs, specialty and vintage stores. The trains and buses are just minutes away, but lots of lovely things to do on foot - shopping, parks, venues, galleries. Despite being so close to everything the room is quiet.

Adaptable, friendly, easy-going host. A career linguist (recently retired) and singer songwriter and poet. I love the convenience and vibrancy of an inner urban lifestyle afforded by Newtown. Come share it! You know you'll love the Newtown Sydney experience!

During your stay
It's up to you how much interaction you want. I'm flexible and personable. You'll get plenty of privacy and a sense of space. I live here, work here sometimes and am in and out with other work, music rehearsals and socialising. Happy to chat, especially when you arrive to settle you in. Mostly I'll leave you to enjoy the delights of Newtown and Sydney.
