We offer accommodation with an artistic outlook. Our town house, re-built in 2011, is a completely re-worked 1890 end terrace.

The architect has made the most of abundant natural light and ventilation.
Setting the scene for your exploration of Newtown's galleries, shops, music venues, theatres, & restaurants (and exclusively for the enjoyment of guests), is a retrospective by Australian artist Tony Twigg.
(In conjunction with Tony's SLOT gallery, we also host the DIP 24/7 Street Art project in our old Shopfront window.)
After a big day out you may want to cosy up in front of our burning log gas fire, and further research the next day's destinations, or Skype home, on our 42" internet connected LCD TV's. Each room in your unit has built in stereo ceiling speakers, with their own volume controls and the ability to switch between different sound sources; (EG MP3 for the bedroom and radio for the Den).

Also, we get your visit off to a flying start with the supply of a great range of breakfast foods, thereby enabling you to enjoy a morning meal whenever it suits each day of your stay.

Our apartment is perfectly positioned at walking distance from the following landmarks:
The Royal Prince Albert Hospital (RPAH)
The University of Sydney (USYD)
The Sydney University Village
The Darlington Conference Centre
The Australian Technology Park Conference Centre
The Harper House College
The Newtown Theatre
The Carriageworks Creative Arts Centre
The Moore Theological College
The Yaama Dhiyaan Hospitality Training Centre

Your unit enjoys its own separate entrance, and MIFARE card security. The bedroom features a King size bed, or 2 X extra length single beds. Your unit has a separate den with Double sofa bed, suitable for two accompanying children. There is a second separate toilet just off the lounge.

The full sized kitchen has a cooktop, microwave, oven, complete with a 4 place dining setting. There are adjoining laundry facilities with laundry tub and combined front loading washing machine/dryer. Your ensuite bathroom features twin head and twin control showers, stone top vanities and heated towel rails.

Your kitchen opens onto our fully grassed courtyard where you will find an authentic Italian woodfired oven and mains connected natural gas barbecue.

At the beginning of your visit we stock the fridge and pantry with juices, milk, coffee, cereals, bread, yoghurt, fruit, bacon and eggs so that you can enjoy preparing your own breakfast each morning at whatever time of day suits you best.

Newtown has a buzz like no other suburb in Sydney. Our street may bring you the music of young children at play in the primary school opposite, or the singing of worshippers in the Church just over the road, who coexist with rock bands that hire their church hall for rehearsals, as well as the classical musicians practising in their home just a couple of doors away.

December 2012

Myself, my partner and our baby spent 3 nights in the apartment in December 2012. The apartment has been really thoughtfully put together. It's really bright & airy and is really close to the CBD. Plus Lloyd is a great host. Overall it's a real gem.
