Our comfortable and well-equipped semi-detached terrace house is on three levels, with city skyline and water views east over Blackwattle Bay from its two rear balconies. The house has two main bedrooms; both are city-facing and one has a balcony with panoramic views. The kitchen-dining area also has a city-facing balcony with a Baby Weber BBQ. The kitchen is equipped with a Fisher & Paykel upside-down fridge/freezer, LG dishwasher, Smeg gas cooktop with electric oven, and a microwave oven. The lounge has a bookshelf/TV unit with a 101 cm (55-inch) flat-screen TV and a CD player. The TV offers a cable service for free-to-air TV and on-demand TV channels. The study/office has two desks, a Canon inkjet printer and Telstra wi-fi modem. There are ceiling fans in the main bedroom, dining room and office. The house has 1.5 bathrooms (one doubles as a laundry with washer, dryer, hand-wash tub, shower and WC). A second 'sitting room' - on the lowest level - opens onto a patio and a small garden; it can be used as a third or 'guest' bedroom with a king single bed. As well as cable broadband internet access, the house has a landline telephone.

The house is 2-minute walk to buses and light rail (tram) access to the CBD. It is a 20-25 min walk to the CBD/Darling Harbour and is also an easy walk, bike or bus ride to three universities: Sydney University, University of Technology Sydney (UTS), and Notre Dame University. The house is also on direct bus routes to the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and Royal Prince Alfred hospital (RPA). It is also very conveniently located for the International Grammar School (IGS), Sydney Secondary College Blackwattle Bay Campus and local primary and pre-schools.

The house is a 5-minute walk to the Bicentennial Park waterfront walkway to Blackwattle Bay, White Bay, harbour foreshore and the renowned Sydney Fish Market with its excellent range of seafood and deli shopping. On-street parking is available (with permits, which we can supply) and there is a Go Get (car-share) point only 10m from the house. Glebe Point Road (GPR) is well provided with restaurants and cafes (Asian, Italian, Indian, Lebanese, Sri Lankan etc), fresh food shops, including greengrocers, bakeries and bulk foods (nuts, grains etc) as well as newsagents, pharmacies, hairdressers, florists and dry cleaners.

Also within walking distance are two 50-metre swimming pools: Victoria Park Swimming Centre, close to Sydney University. It has a heated outdoor pool. The Ian Thorpe Aquatic Centre is an indoor multi-pool facility in nearby Ultimo. The St James tennis courts are a short walk away and we can leave tennis racquets for you if you are interested. The local area is well served by medical facilities, including Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

'We met Derek and Margaret through mutual friends while looking for a property in France (we live less than 30 minutes apart in both Sydney and France!). Their house in Sydney is comfortable and extremely well situated, and they are delightful people. Book with confidence.'

This is the nicest of 6 homes I've rented in the Inner West. Spacious and with a beautiful view, one block from Glebe Point Road. Derek and Margaret were perfect: friendly, responsive, not fussy. You can live in the kitchen/dining room and the back bedroom which is where the sunlight is. The front rooms are darker but perfectly comfortable. and the study up front is spacious if you need it. The neighborhood has everything you need within a block or two, and the access to both bus and light-rail (both 2 minute walk) made it easy to get around. Victoria Park and Pool are a treasure, ,maybe 12 minute walk away but also on the bus lines. Excellent Richard Cohn 8/17/2019 7:50:00 PM
My family and I stayed in Derek's and Margaret's house for 3 months and we had a great time. The house is very comfortable, clean and spacious, and it has an amazing view of the city. Derek and Margaret are wonderful hosts and helped us whenever we had a request. I highly recommend this house! Excellent Alice 9/10/2018 12:10:00 AM
We are a family of 5 from Canada and we spent a month in Sydney and stayed in Margaret and Derek's Glebe home. We loved every minute of it! The house is cozy, well-appointed and situated in friendly Glebe, close to a multitude of restaurants, cafes and bakeries. and in close proximity to Darling Harbour. University of Sydney is within 5 min drive or you can walk in under 30min, the large Broadway mall is within 15 min walking as well. The house has great views of the CBD. Moreover, Margaret and Derek are very gracious hosts. Thank you, we will definitely return! Excellent harus 10/29/2017 6:13:00 PM
Our family (parents and a three year old) stayed in Derek’s and Margaret’s house for eight weeks. The house is very spacious and well kept. The location of the house is perfect; it is close to CDB, wonderful parks, shops and restaurants. Public transportation is working well, and many of the key locations are at walking distance. We enjoyed our walks in the surrounding areas as well as spending nights at home cooking and barbequing. The amenities met all our expectations and we truly enjoyed our stay. Derek and Margaret are wonderful hosts and they provided us all the information and help we needed. Without hesitation, we recommend this house to other visitors.

My family (spouse and 14 year old son) thoroughly enjoyed our one and a half month stay in this home in Glebe. The view of the city was fantastic and the home extremely comfortable. There were plenty of shops and restaurants nearby and good public transit with the light rail and buses. The owners were quite easy to work with and we had no difficulties at all during our stay. We would recommend this to other visitors without reservation. Excellent RV 9/16/2014 8:32:00 PM
