The Caretaker's Cottage

Entire flat hosted by Jean

Open the front gate to the lovely park neighbouring this peaceful, centrally located apartment. Unwind in the loft featuring a contemporary and cozy minimalist design, and quiet deck surrounded by olive trees overlooking the oval. It is built on to the side of our family home but is completely self contained with its own entrance and deck. We only share the front gate leading to the park.
“Sitting on the deck overlooking the park on a sunny afternoon with a book and a good glass of wine is the perfect antidote to city life. Guests have described the cottage as an "oasis of calm, secluded but near to everything you might need."”

Hi, I'm Jean, your host. I live in the wonderful. multi-cultural suburb of Marrickville with my two teenage sons, husband, spoodle, Eppie and two friendly cats. We love living in the unique atmosphere of a park. I am from England and have lived in Australia for nearly 15 years. I enjoy hopping between the two countries and love travelling. As a journalist, I have done a fair bit of it so I feel that I know what people are looking for when they're searching for accommodation for travel or just for a break. I enjoy reading, listening to live music and good food - lucky I live in Marrickville where that's all on my doorstep! I'm looking forward to meeting you and taking care of you at The Caretaker's Cottage!
