Coogee/Randwick Garden Studio

Elegant Scandi-style wooden studio apartment, in lush and peaceful garden setting, which you are also welcome to enjoy. Short walking distance to Coogee Beach, University of New South Wales, Prince of Wales and Children's Hospital. A vibrant cafe area, the 'Spot' with its famous Art Deco Ritz Cinema, is just around the corner, as are frequent buses to the city (approx 30 minutes away by bus, or 20 minutes by car) and other shopping areas. The area boasts plenty to do nearby, including long walks along beautiful cliff-side tracks, lovely beaches, surfing, swimming, snorkelling, free tennis courts and the historic Wylie's Baths. I am an academic at Sydney University with two adult sons, who come and go. We have a friendly small dog and cat, and enjoy hosting students and academics for short or longer term stays.

I have lived in the United States and studied at Oxford in the UK. My areas of interest are literary journalism studies and health communication, with a particular interest in motherhood studies and breastfeeding. I have two adult sons, and their pets, one dog and one cat.

Beautiful wooden cabin at the back of the main house. I enjoyed my stay. Fiona was attentive and made sure I was comfortable. Walking distance to UNSW and nearby shopping areas (e.g. The Spot and Royal Randwick Shopping Centre) is a bonus! Excellent Yong 8/5/2019 1:36:00 AM
Fiona's place is just a dream. It's bright, modern and has everything you could think of needing. The location is perfect for anyone going to UNSW or even to Sydney Uni. with easy transportation just a couple of minutes away. The area is peaceful, quiet and you can walk to the beach with ease. The flat is great for one or two people and I found it to be a great place to get some writing and work done. The garden setting is just beautiful. I'd highly recommend Fiona's cabin - it's truly a gem! Excellent Jdart22 6/1/2016 1:29:00 AM
