Eastern Suburbs lifestyle at your doorstep!
Sunny room with queen bed in 2 bedroom top floor unit, centrally located between Coogee Beach and The Spot Randwick with it's cinema, restaurants & cafes.
Use of outdoor gear, incl. bicycle, available.
The room is furnished with queen bed, large built in, study desk & couch. The bathroom is original but always kept clean and tidy. Kitchen is updated and equipped with everything you need. Use of kitchen basics (salt, pepper, sugar etc) are included which you will find in the main kitchen cupboard on a marked shelf.
Make yourself at home while you are away from home. You are free to use (almost) anything - books, TV, DVD's & CD's, guitar... The balcony has a kettle barbeque (the only way to experience real BBQ flavour!)
If needed, please ask for beach bag and beach towel, snorkel gear, bicycle or other stuff stacked away in my gear collection, and enjoy the outdoors. The bike is nothing fancy but gets you around very well. (For safety reasons, please bring your own helmet.)
Things to do right at your doorstep are the beautiful Coogee-Bondi walk, all the Coogee cafes and restaurants, several beaches, snorkel or dive in Gordens Bay or Clovelly. Dozens of cafes and restaurants as well as a cinema at the lively "The Spot" in Randwick are in walking distance.
The unit is centrally located between Coogee Beach, shops and cafes and The Spot Randwick (each between 10-15 minute walk). Bus stop to Randwick and the City is right at the door step. UNSW is just down the road - if you are a student use the bike and you'll be there in a few minutes (and the ride is nearly level because the unit is near the top of one of Coogee's many hills). There are also bus options which get you close to several of the entrance gates within a few minutes.

As much or as little as you want really. I am a busy full time professional, and am starting a business on the side, which means that I am often home late, and don't tend to have a lot of time. But if you are up for a chat then you can usually lure me away from work for a while with a good conversation, or the occasional glass of wine... :-).
Wifi is included (for normal surfing, emails, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) etc, just no massive downloads please).
Since I am working during the day please give me a heads up as to when you are planning to arrive, and we'll work something out to give you access to the keys. In case you are arriving early and the room hasn't been vacated by the previous guest we can generally arrange for you to drop off your stuff and grab a key for later. Depending on availability post your stay we may also be able to arrange a flexible check out time (no guarantee, subject to availability). Bag storage is available in the laundry on check in & check out days free of charge.
All I am really asking for is that you are mindful that this is my home and my stuff that I am sharing with you. Please leave everything the way you found it and all will be fine :-).
The place is not really suitable for young kids or pets.
Oh, and this is an absolute no smoking home (also not on the balcony).
I am originally from Germany and have lived in Sydney for the past 12 years (and except for 3 weeks, always in Coogee). I enjoy trying new things, eating healthy food, meditating, anything relating to my business, a good conversation, a glass of red, a good night sleep, sitting at or walking along the beautiful coast line that I am privileged to call home, and anything outdoors really - from climbing, hiking, camping, canyoning, biking...
I love to travel, but haven't done much in recent years due to my work. I've got big plans to change that soon, and my bucket list keeps getting longer and longer. Right now, Nepal and Iceland are at the top :-). Oh, and New Zealand.
I like to have a nice place to come home to after work. After over 8 years of house and flat sharing and living on my own for a while I decided to share my home with travelers from around the world, and am really enjoying the encounters with new guests.
