The Space

I have set up my place to be sustainable. Developing a garden that not only provides me with food, but is also full of local native plants that provide food and shelter for a myriad of native animals, including the iconic Green Tree Frog, a native Stingless Bee Hive, skinks, birds, and many different native insect species. Although a suburban backyard the space is beautiful and cosy. The home is simply furnished with pre-loved furniture either inherited or bought and I try to minimise my impact on the planet by only

Guest Access

You can access kitchen, laundry, lounge, veranda and garden. Tea and coffee is always available with homemade biscuits. I will cook meals at an extra cost of $20pp - please let me know; and can do a picnic lunch $15pp for walking or car travel - again let me know in advance.

Interaction with Guests

I live at this house, but will keep out of your way as much as possible. I will be available most of the weekend to answer questions, give tips on what to visit and how to get there. Just ask.

The Neighborhood

Richmond is a unique part of Sydney. It is part of Sydney's greater west, but is very rural in character; a short walk will find a cow or sheep in a paddock and there are natural areas very close by. Richmond is flat, so is easy walking. My home is located 2 mins from the public pool which is practically deserted first thing in the morning and last thing in evening and its lovely swimming there as the sun sets (open til 8pm over summer). There is a family run cinema (such a rarity nowadays) that show the blockbusters, but occasionally gets an Arthouse (The Richmond Regent). Several cafes on the main street look out onto the beautiful central park and cricket oval. Despite this rural character, Richmond is on a direct train line to the city and it is easy to get here.

Getting Around

My home is close to the station (700m). You can catch the train out and bring your bicycles and check out the local area on pedal power, or just walk around the town centres as both Richmond and Windsor have stations with trains every half hour in peak times. A car is needed for further adventuring, but there is a bike trail up to Kurrajong for the fit. I am happy to pick people up from the station.

Other Things to Note

Richmond can be very hot in summer and very cold in winter so appropriate clothing is important. Bring swimmers as there are not only the public pool nearby, but a number of areas such as Colo River, Wheeny Creek, Yarramindi/Grose River junction, accessible by car (Yarramundi you could cycle to - 4km) where you can swim. Richmond has a shopping centre so if you forget something you can always walk up to the supermarket and get it.

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
