The terrace is spacious and has 3 private bedrooms, one as an Air BnB room, one is my bedroom, and the 3rd as my office so plenty of space for 2 people to live comfortably. The bedroom is large enough to sleep 2 people. It's centrally located, with plenty of transport links to both the city and beaches.

The space

Lovely room in renovated 3 bedroom terrace in Redfern. the bedroom is private and has double bed with a
large window, leafy outlook, and plenty of cupboard space. it's a large modern and clean share bathroom but only with me. There's a great deck to sit on in the morning sun with your tea or coffee which is provided. There are 2 living spaces one with a large flat screen television and fireplace, a new kitchen with gas cooking, dishwasher and microwave and a BBQ on the deck. My labradoodle will keep you company if you're cooking!
There's a washing machine available as well as the wifi.

Plenty of great cafes and restaurants at your doorstep and 2 minutes to buses and trains to explore Sydney. you can walk into the city in 20 minutes or jump on a bus to get you there in 10 minutes.
Redfern station is a 5 minute walk from the house, and Central station is a 12 minute walk from the house.
There's a fully equipped gym a 5 minute walk away, a lovely new 50 metre swimming pool a 7 minute walk away, a few yoga studios, as well as a large supermarket a 2 minute walk away.

Interaction with guests

I work for myself so that keeps me busy, I also go out often and I'm away often too, however when i'm home I always enjoy a chat and a coffee or glass of wine and some advice on where to go, when and how to get there.
It's always nice to share a meal sometimes, but respectfully giving you your space too.
I really enjoy having people from all over the world come and stay with me.

Mel is a fantastic host and I very much enjoyed my stay at her place. It is very close to transit, and not a far walk to the city or other areas. Thank you for a great stay!

Mel and Harry (her dog) were fantastic hosts! Beautiful home in a lovely area. I had ordered some food in and Mel invited me to sit at her dinner table with her and her friend to eat and chat. Being a solo traveller I really enjoyed the lovely company in addition to the clean, bright room. Would 100% recommend you book Mel's place if you're in Sydney.

Mel User ProfileMel is a superhost.

I work for myself as a commercial photographer and director of photography and I love it!
I have an office at home so sometimes i'm at home during the day working whilst other times I'm out working on location or at my studio.
Harry (my dog) and I go walking every morning. She will greet you very enthusiastically when you arrive at the house and be ready for a scratch on her tummy from you to say hello.
It's great to meet new people from all over the world and have a chat over a coffee or a wine and share my local knowledge with you, and hear about your travelling experiences, but I also respect your privacy, and my work keeps me pretty busy too!
I love being an Air BnB host and have made some great friends from the guests who have stayed with me from all over the world.
I look forward to meeting you.
