With two big bedrooms both with ensuite bathrooms, your own private pool and gorgeous outdoor spaces for entertaining, the place is brilliantly equipped for the business or leisure traveller. And yes, of course there's WiFi, cable TV and parking. This beautiful retreat is surrounded by rare urban rainforest above a park on the shores of Sydney Harbour. It feels secluded and private, yet you're just 6.6km from the Sydney CBD (closer than Bondi beach) with a bus to the city only metres away.

Le logement
This is a large self-contained apartment on the ground floor of mid-century modern house looking out over a rainforest park in Greenwich, a tree-filled suburb surrounded by water on the northern side of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom and there's free parking and WiFi. The guest kitchen is well-equipped, with fridge, stove, microwave and Nespresso machine. Plus there's a well-equipped laundry with washer and dryer and a gas-fired BBQ on your pool terrace which does a great job on pizzas and roasts as well as traditional BBQ foods. Your sitting room opens directly onto a large poolside terrace and pool surrounded by tall rainforest trees.

As well as the two large bedrooms, each with its own ensuite bathroom with shower, there is a well-equipped kitchen and sitting room with smart TV with Netflix, Stan and Amazon Prime, free WiFi and exclusive use of the pool, BBQ, extensive outside entertaining areas and gardens. Everything you can see in the photos is for your exclusive use.

There is guest parking for one car on-site and free street parking.

Guests have their own separate, private laundry adjacent to their apartment

The sitting room opens onto a covered lounging and dining area next to the pool with a hammock and 8 seater table. This outdoor area has curtains and electric heating for the cooler months. There is a glass pool fence between the house and the pool.

On the pool terrace there is a large BBQ, another 8 seater dining area and another undercover lounging area where smoking is permitted. From this terrace, stairs lead down to the rainforest boardwalk, tiered sunning and meditation decks and a treehouse. From there you can walk down a steep bush track to a beautiful park on the Sydney Harbour foreshore.

PLEASE NOTE : The apartment is linked to the house via an internal stairwell. It is enclosed by acoustic curtains to minimise sound transmission and there is no visual contact between the upper level (where your host lives) and the lower level, where Airbnb guests stay.

SECURITY - HOUSE ALARM AND VIDEO/AUDIO SURVEILLANCE

Exterior Surveillance: There are 4 cameras covering the exterior of the property which record video and audio and store and upload to the cloud in real time. Note that tampering or removing these cameras will not prevent the information already recorded from being transmitted and stored. The actual location of all exterior cameras will be shown to you at check-in. There is no surveillance inside the listing nor in the backyard/pool area.

These cameras feature a two way audio feed, so I can speak to you, and you me via them if necessary.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT TIMES
It's generally not possible to arrive before 3pm or depart after 10am. Please bear this in mind when you are making travel arrangements.

If you wish to have access to the listing significantly before the 3pm check-in you can only assure this by booking the place the night prior to the day of your arrival. Arrival slightly early - e.g. after 1.pm - may be possible, but you will be asked to pay a fee of $42 per hour to cover the cost of the additional casual cleaning staff needed to complete the changeover in less than 4 hours. Please discuss this prior to booking and, if it's not a busy time, I may be able to offer you a reduced rate for that night. The same applies to a departure past 11am. Additional cleaning fees of $42 per hour or part thereof will apply for up to 2 hours past check-out. If you wish to remain in residence any later than 1pm you must book that night as well.

Note, that these terms only apply to arrangements made at least 7 days before arrival. An early arrival or late departure without sufficient notice and agreement by me will be treated as a breach of the house rules and the fee for late checkout stated in the House Rules will apply.

TRAVELLING WITH CHILDREN
The Airbnb "under twos are free" concept does not apply to this listing.

The maximum capacity is 4 people, regardless of age. As Airbnb's system doesn't automatically calculate the right number of guests or the right fee if guests are under 2, you'll have to enter them as though they were 2 - 12 years old.

ENTERTAINING VISITORS?
If you intend to entertain while you're in residence please let me know your plans before booking. Whilst this is sometimes permissible, please don't assume that it's ok to bring unregistered visitors into my home without first seeking my permission.

SAFETY
The space is not 'childproof' so please make sure you supervise any visiting children. We have the usual household safety measures; window locks, electrical safety switches on all switchboards including outdoor lighting, approved pool fence, self-closing doors with 1.5m handles for all doors to the pool area, smoke detectors in all rooms, temperature limiter on hot water, non-slip safety mats under rugs and a fire extinguisher.

However, it will not be as safe as the home of someone who has small children living with them - e.g there are no outlet covers on power points, no bumper guards on sharp furniture, no non-slip tape on bathroom floors, not all furniture is fixed to the wall, there are no stove guards, anti-slamming devices on doors etc, etc The bottom line is that you need to be significantly more vigilant than you would be in your own home.

The backyard is made up of stairs and decks which can get slippery when it rains and require careful navigation using the additional hand-held lighting supplied if going down there at night. Once you reach the end of the boardwalk and step off into the bush trail, it is steep and can be very, very slippery after rain.

The driveway is long and there is a steep downhill approach to the house. It has a non-slip coating and we try to keep it as debris free as possible. However, be careful and watch where you are going at all times.

FOOD
The kitchen is initially stocked with breakfast supplies, snacks and tea and coffee etc so you don't have to make a trip to the shops the minute you arrive. Please note, it will not be re-stocked while you're in residence.

PETS & WILDLIFE
We have 2 cats, George and Denny. They have enough sense to stay away from the guest area unless you welcome them.

Emplacement

Greenwich, Nouvelle Galles du Sud, Australie

Greenwich is a hidden gem of Sydney. It's a harbour-side suburb on the lower north shore of Sydney between Lane Cove and Wollstonecraft. It's renowned for its natural beauty and is less than 7km from the city centre. It really is the best of both worlds - close to city but clean, safe and spectacularly beautiful.

One of the great attractions of Greenwich, and my house especially, is its proximity to beautiful parks and walking tracks which will take you all around the harbour foreshore.

It's a great place for hiking, sailing and kayaking and there's a public golf course just up the road.

There are many local parks with children's play equipment and outdoor training facilities (the best is at the bottom of my garden) and tennis courts for hire. Nearby Lane Cove is a major bus transport hub and has supermarkets, shops, restaurants, bars and a pub.

We live in a semi-tropical rainforest. So be prepared to encounter insects and the local wildlife.

In the day time you might encounter beautiful big lizards - water dragons, goannas, blue tongues and frill necks - but only if it's a sunny day and they don't scamper off at your approach.

You'll also hear, and hopefully see, our big fat kookaburras, brightly coloured lorikeets and, if you're super lucky, a lyrebird.

The shops and restaurants of Crows Nest and Lane Cove are nearby and can be reached in minutes by car or bus or, for the more active, on foot.

The local Greenwich village shops have cafes, a grocery store which would satisfy the most discerning foodie, a pharmacy which delivers, a bottle shop and a post office.

I love to create beautiful spaces for humans which delight and deliver peace, comfort, privacy and efficiency; with a sense of fun. As a seasoned business traveller who's spent far too much time in hotels, I've developed an aversion to giant towels marinated in fabric softener, mean little shards of shrink-wrapped soap, toilet paper origami, shower gels that could degrease a sea otter, coat hangers that require Tetris-like manipulations to unleash their hanging power and bio-hazardous pillow shams. With this in mind, I've put a lot of thought into creating an accommodation experience that avoids inflicting these hospitality sins on my guests.
