  • Description


    It is important to me that you feel comfortable and are happy here. I only have space for 1 person. I live alone in a very peaceful and beautiful environment on the Georges river in the south of Sydney. 25 minutes from the city and 25 minutes from the beach.

    I enjoy meditating, playing guitar, writing songs, growing plants, reading and hanging out with my is good and I love what I do.

    I was a musician for 14 years and now enjoy running a small gardening business.

    You sleep on a queen sized bed right next to the lounge window looking out over the river. With the window and view comes the drawback though that you are sleeping in the lounge and although I have put curtains around your bed for privacy you can still hear me in the kitchen rustling around if you want to sleep in. In the unit there is a shower, washing machine, dishwasher, balcony and then the gorgeous 160 degree views over that part of the river which gives us the feeling that we live on a lake. Bird life and possums are there too.

    It is a huge open plan bachelor pad.

    If you are uncomfortable with having someone else's presence close to you or waking up to find the host in the kitchen while you are sleeping only meters away my place might not be for you. You need to feel comfortable being and sleeping in an open plan room, even though your sleeping room does have curtains for some privacy, sound may be disturbing or wake you up if you are a light sleeper.

    I am not vegetarian but enjoy vegetarian food and do not eat all meats. I try to eat healthily.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Sydney is an outdoors lifestyle city with plenty to do especially if you are sporty with watersports right up there amongst the best! We have the Blue Mountains within an hour and a half. There are a long list of beaches south and north of the city and of course the iconic Opera house and harbour bridge well visited. I take my visitors down south to the Royal National Park for the kind of walks only a local could take you on. Manly is popular as well as Oxford street and the Gay mile. The Central Coast is beautiful and the Hunter Valley wine district within two hours drive. Locally where I live there are beautiful parks, Brighton Le Sands for swimming in the ocean and of course the river.

    I am a very light sleeper and a very auditory person. I need to have the lounge cleared of any sound when I hit the hay (go to bed) so that I can sleep.

    I go to bed between 9.30 and 11pm most week nights. In summer it can be as early as nine thirty to bed.

    I try to be as allowing and accepting as possible. I find this difficult with people who are insensitive and unaware.

    I love laughter and being funny...I encourage and try to hold a space wherein you can flourish and grow. I notice your talent and commend you for it.

    I am not responsible nor need I pay for your alcohol consumption.
