Simba & I
Contemporary home situated in Randwick/Sth Coogee. A quiet, leafy nook (no thru traffic) mid-way between and a short stroll to Coogee Bch, Randwick Shops, The Spot (food & entertainment) and also the P.O.W Hospital, Royal Children's Hospital, Royal Hospital for Women and The U.N.S.W). Perfect for the many visiting exchange academics et al. Upstairs finds 2 identical size bedrooms. 1 with a Queen bed (this listing, THE RETREAT) and 1 with a King bed and better furnished known as "THE RETREAT-KING SUITE". I reside at the rear section of this large home. The main bathroom is yours (unless both rooms are booked whence it's shared). This rarely occurs as I limit such bookings. Both rooms share a sunny, private balcony. Downstairs there's a modern. fully-equipped kitchen (but you're probably not here to cook!). A perfect home for entertaining if needed. Outside is situated the Courtyard with BBQ facilities, outdoor furniture, and gardens. All mod-cons (reverse cycle aircon and more). Privacy?. Whenever possible I retreat to my personal area to allow you uninterrupted use of all main living areas. And finally! Simba, a small Bichon Frise.
I'll let the Guest reviews answer this thanks.
