We have a 1950s house in a quiet street 15 minutes walk from Coogee Beach, the tranquil surroundings are home to a variety of native birds such as kookaburras, cockatoos and rainbow lorikeets. The house has two living areas and a sunny and private back yard. We have retained many original 1950s features of the house, we love the retro style but we have a modern stove, fridge and dishwasher. 10 minutes drive to iconic Bondi Beach, 20 minutes drive or bus to the city of Sydney. The bus stop is less than 5 minutes walk away. It's a perfect base for exploring Sydney, or having a lazy day at the beach.
The house has a separate kitchen, bathroom, separate laundry, and the living room. The master bedroom has a queen bed, the home office has an IMac and fast internet connection, and another living room/music room has a double sofa bed. The second bedroom has a single bed and we can get another single bed if necessary. The living room has a dining table that seats 8. We have a sunny back garden with barbQ.
Our local area offers natural beauty and cultural opportunities. From our place you can walk along the cliffs of Sydney’s coastline, or catch a bus and be in the city in 20 minutes. As a recent homelink guest said, Très belle maison australienne avec jardin qui nous a permis de vivre comme les locaux. La plage , les promenades , les cafés et les magasins sont à deux pas.
The top "free thing to do in Sydney" as described by lonely planet
Take the Bondi to Coogee Walk
One of the most spectacular walks and coastlines you could hope to see, this route takes in some of Sydney’s most iconic beaches. In late spring, check out the free Sculpture by the Sea (www.sculpturebythesea.com)
We can do non-simutaneous swaps. We want to go to Europe in October but understand you may want to come to Australia in our summer.
