  • Description


    Come stay in a large house in a beautiful, leafy, quiet area in South Caringbah
    near the beautiful beaches of Cronulla and bays all around
    ( 5 min drive = 20 min walk)

    We have a have 2 young dogs, free range rabbits and 2 cats

    It's 50 mins by train to Sydney centre. 35 mins to airport by train.

    We have a salt water pool and NOW ALL of our home water is filtrated as we recently got Complete home water filtration installed.. so that's showers as well as sinks.. everything even the laundry!

    I have an organic online shop with eco travel tips in the free resource section.

    My father is retired Radiologist and my mother was a primary teacher from Boston- she lived in Spain for 4 years.

    We lived in Saudi Arabia from 79-84 (and before that the USA) and have been in Sydney since.

    I like to be economical when I drive - I might go out once a day by car and could drop you at a station- it takes about 20-33 mins to walk to Woolooware or Caringbah Train station. There are also buses and Uber.

    My dad usually goes out once a day so can drop you at the train station too or places nearby. Mum doesn't drive.

    We have solar panels, worm farm for composting, 4 rain water tanks and we grow a few herbs.
