Spacious leafy home with easy access to U Sydney and UTS

Our spacious 3 bedroom home features open-plan living areas and a deck overlooking a lush sub-tropical garden. With a fully equipped kitchen, two bathrooms and two living areas, it’s ideal for a family with young or older children, or adults. There are two queen bedrooms and one double.
Ideally you will enjoy the company of our very independent mature age cat Coco, but neighbours can take over feeding him if you are travelling during your stay.
We are 1 minute from a bus route to Sydney University and UTS or less than 10 minutes walk from two train stations and a light rail stop, and a 15 min train trip to the city centre. By car it takes about 25 minutes to my university, UNSW, and 30 minutes to Coogee or Maroubra Beach.
The nearby Cooks River parklands are great for walking, golf, football or cycling and we have two bikes you can use. There are two small parks with playgrounds a couple of minutes walk away and the closest cafe is just around the corner.
Marrickville is a vibrant multi-cultural community with a lively music scene, interesting shopping, a popular Sunday market and numerous restaurants and cafes we can recommend for you, including Japanese, Greek, Thai, Vietnamese and Italian. The new Marrickville Library with excellent cafe, free wifi and wonderful study and meeting spaces is a hub for locals.
Locals, AKA ‘Villains’, are friendly and active in environmental, cultural and social projects and events.

Rental is reduced to compensate for cat feeding and watering . If you prefer not to take Coco feeding and twice weekly watering, we can negotiate a higher rent to cover the cost of a teenage neighbour doing this instead.
