Set in a leafy street in Sydney’s inner west, the studio sits in a garden setting at the back of a sprawling Victorian villa. It’s cosy and well-supplied with quality linen and towels. You’ll find pots and pans and cutlery, a litre of milk in the fridge, a microwave and a fantastic espresso machine with Twinings Tea and Grinders coffee supplied. We also leave goodies for your breakfast – muesli, homemade granola, Bourke St Bakery sourdough bread with butter marmalade, jam and milk – but there’s also a great café just a two minute stroll. There’s a two seater couch and a cane armchair and seating for two at the pine table.
The bathroom is straight from the 1980s, ie it’s small and there’s not a lot of marble. But the shower works fine, there’s all the hot water you could ask for, shampoo and conditioner are supplied and the towels are as white as Julia Roberts’ teeth.
No washing machine in the studio but there’s a laundry about a three-minute walk away. (closed on Wednesday)
We have one Italian greyhound but she doesn’t make a fuss. Guest Access Separate and private, via a side gate that opens to the upper level of the garden.
Off street parking available for a small car. Interaction with Guests One of us is usually home so feel free to call and we’ll do our best to help make your stay all that you’d like it to be. The Neighborhood We’re just a short walk from Summer Hill Station and the village is well supplied with cafes and restaurants and there’s a supermarket. Sydney city is about a 20 minute train ride. We’re enthusiastic café and restaurants patrons and guests will have our own biased reviews of the local cafe scene. We’re about a 5-minute drive from Haberfield, Sydney’s Italian eat street, which has some great cafes, a couple of knockout pasticcerie (mmm, cannoli) and one of Sydney’s best pizza joints. Marrickville, which has some of Sydney’s best Vietnamese food, is a 10-minute car trip and Newtown’s boho King Street – think cafes, nightlife, bars, tattoos and lots of piercings and a dining scene that ranges from tapas to Thai - is on the same train line, also 10 minutes by car. Getting Around Sydney Airport is a 20 minute taxi ride or about 40 minutes by train. If there are two of you the taxi is usually a better deal. Circular Quay – Opera House, ferries to beaches and around the harbour, billion dollar views – is a 25-minute train ride. Other Things to Note We’re both avid travellers. We’ve stayed in a lot of hotels, from no-stars to the Amans and Comos in some of the world’s greatest places. We’ve tried to create somewhere tranquil with a sense of personality, where guests can feel at home, at a reasonable price. ...
