The space

G'day!
Our studio apartment is self contained with a Queen size bed, sofa, dining table and chairs, work bench and plenty of storage space. It is equipped with TV, Wi Fi, Air Cond, well stocked kitchen, bathroom with shower and a private entrance. You would also have the use of our pool and laundry facilities available if need be.

We live in what is known as Sydney's Hills district and are within walking distance to Muirfield Golf Course and Westfield shopping Centre, North Rocks. Macquarie University, one of Australia's leading universities is not far away.

The studio apartment is attached to our house which overlooks Bidjigal Reserve, a place of rugged natural beauty and full of hidden treasures; a time capsule of ancient ecosystems, aboriginal shelters and colonial history with sheer sandstone cliffs, towering eucalypt forest, sparkling creeks and sheltered rainforest gullies, it is an oasis of natural habitat in the middle of urban Sydney. The reserve supports a wide range of birds - like Wrens and Thornbills; mammals - such as Echidnas and Sugar Gliders and various reptiles and insects. There are many excellent bushwalks in Bidjigal Reserve. Visitors to our garden include birds such as Kookaburras, Crimson Rosellas, Sulphur Crested Cockatoos and Rainbow Lorikeets.

We have much to offer living as we do so close to the bush and yet within easy reach of the city of Sydney - half an hour away by bus. We are well served with an excellent bus service; every couple of minutes in peak hour otherwise every 10-15 minutes and until the wee small hours Friday & Saturday nights. With easy to access public transport you can explore the many beautiful beaches Sydney boasts - more than 50 in total. There is much to see and do in the area; we are close to the historic town of Parramatta while the beautiful Blue Mountains are about 90 minutes drive away or you can catch a train from Parramatta which is also easily accessible by bus. The icing on the cake is that we live in a very quiet, friendly and safe suburb. Our neighbours would all welcome you into the area.

We would prefer you to contact us first before booking to ask whatever questions you might have. We want to make sure that you'll be happy with what we have to offer before you arrive.

We, (Michelle and Kevin) are the proud parents of six adult children and five beautiful grandchildren. We are both now officially retired. Amongst the jobs Kevin did in his working life was to design many of the lights in the Sydney Opera House and he later ran his own business. Kevin's hobbies include golfing, cooking, gardening, bushwalking, reading and he's a handy person to have around when there is a pile of ironing to be done! Apart from the jobs associated with motherhood I have worked in theatre box offices and run my own business. My hobbies include reading, gardening, cooking, bushwalking, tennis and writing - I have just finished writing my second book, the first one published in 2006. We enjoy visiting Art Galleries, Museums, Historic Houses, Theatre, Concerts and Ballet although the latter three are more up my alley than Kevin's! We also love to regularly socialise with friends and amongst our close-knit family. We are also keen travellers which is how we discovered Airbnd.

We look forward to welcoming you to our beautiful area of Sydney!

My husband and I are tourists from Argentina who stayed three weeks at the property of Michelle and Kevin. We were pleasantly surprised with a very cozy and I must add very well equipped house with pantry and refrigerator with more than enough elements to solve the first meals up…

Thank you Osvaldo & Griselda for your very kind words which are greatly appreciated. It was such a pleasure to have you stay with us and I'd like to think of you as more than our Airbnb guests, but as friends. Yes please, do come back to stay with us at some time in the future. Safe journey back to Argentina. Michelle

Michelle's accommodation is a lovely self contained place with plenty of sun. I enjoyed that I could come and go as I pleased as it had it's own entry. Anyone wanting their own bathroom and kitchen should definitely stay here! Perfect for what I needed, close to public transport…
