Beautiful Home in Thirroul, North Wollongong

My house is a sunny, welcoming house that has 3 spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms, unlimited internet access, a walk to the beach and to the village of Thirroul. There is a mineral/saltwater pool, an outdoor eating space and a lovely, friendly garden and neighbourhood. Thirroul is a vibrant and eclectic community with a number of cafes and restaurants, interesting shops and access to the express train to Sydney (1 hour). It is popular with academics and professional people and is a great place to stay if working in either Sydney or Wollongong and offers a relaxed alternative to staying in the city (Sydney). This house is available from late November to early January. Pets are welcome but being near the bush, we do get some wildlife visitors in the garden (parrots, bandicoots, possums) so they would need to be mindful of them (and not want to chase them). If this is not for you at this stage, you might want to consider renting a room during the Australian semester time. You would be sharing with me and my dog and we are both quiet and work (too much probably!).

About Me
I am a Lecturer in the Faculty of Social Work in the School of Health and Society at the University of Wollongong. I have worked here for approximately 18 months. Prior to that I was working for the University of New England and the University of Sydney. I am employed in a full time, ongoing basis and as well as teaching, I am undertaking my PhD - so I am busy! I am originally from Sydney and after living away from the city for several years, I decided to make a move to the beautiful beachside village of Thirroul, in Wollongong's northern suburbs. I haven't looked back. Thirroul is delightful and a number of academics and professional people live in this area mainly due to the village and community type atmosphere and the proximity to the beach and express train to Sydney. My house is lovely. It is bright and spacious and has three bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms. I can walk to the beach, the beautiful forest behind my house and take a dip in the backyard pool. There is plenty of space and it is very quiet and peaceful. I am looking for someone who ideally wants to share this space for a set amount of time. Is there someone out there who might be visiting for a few months who doesn't want to rent a whole house to themselves? This might be a cheaper option and you would be sharing with another academic (me). Access to Sydney is easy with the express train but Wollongong Uni is also very accessible. I have a dog who is delightful and is a large part of my world. We are quiet and find that when session is on, there is not a lot of energy for much else! If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful space to spend some time in, this might suit you. Outside of work, I love the beach, riding my bike, going to yoga and the gym and dinners out. I have a great community of like minded people around me and I enjoy their company both in Thirroul and Sydney. I am happy to provide more detail/information if you would like it, but the above information might be a good start.
