Our friendly vegetarian home is located close to Maroubra beach. Buses to the city stop near the front door, and the bedrooms have views to the sea. The kitchen, bathroom, lounge and garden are communal and set up for a relaxing and comfortable stay. Unlike other beaches in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Maroubra is laid back and not overdeveloped. As well as the popular surf beach you can swim at the beautiful Mahon rock pool, and there are some nice ocean walks, either north towards Bondi or south around the Malabar headland. There are supermarkets and smaller shops nearby at Maroubra Junction, and there are some great little cafes opening up in the area, including the Grumpy Baker and Chalk, near the beach, and the vegetarian Herb'n'Sprout, along Maroubra Rd.

There are supermarkets and smaller shops nearby at Maroubra Junction, and there are some great little cafes opening up in the area, including the Grumpy Baker and Chalk, near the beach, and the vegetarian Herb'n'Sprout, along Maroubra Rd. We have two bedrooms available for guests - a double and a king single. Both rooms are modestly sized and are east facing with good sea views. We have bedding and towels available if you don't have your own. The bathroom is communal and clean. The kitchen is a good size, with an additional fridge for guest use. The household is vegetarian, so we ask that you respect this condition if preparing meals or eating-in. We occasionally watch films together and there is a projector in the lounge room, hooked up to a decent sound system on which you can also play records or connect your own devices. You are welcome to share the communal areas in the house, and to make use of the garden and laundry facilities. We have a small worm farm for food scraps and there are rubbish and recycling facilities by the front gate. There is a Hills Hoist in the garden and there are indoor clotheslines in the laundry in case it rains. For relaxing at home we have an eclectic library of DVDs and plenty of good books which you're welcome to read while you are staying with us. We enjoy a shared meal or watching a movie together when we're around, but you can choose to spend time with us or not, as suits your plans. We have previously found postgraduate students to be a good fit for our home, as it is best suited to mindful guests who are looking for something more than just a cheap place to stay. There are two bus routes that service the city with stops near our front door. If you arrive in Sydney by plane it shouldn't cost much more than $25 or so to get an uber or taxi to our place, and if you are travelling in your own vehicle there is always free on-street parking. A stroll to the beach is about ten minutes by foot, and UNSW is fifteen minutes away by bicycle. Please note that the grass verge down to our front gate from the footpath is a bit steep, and there are also steps up to our front door, so access for guests without full mobility would be difficult. Being an older house, there are some great period features such as high ceilings, stained glass windows and polished floorboards, but the rooms are not soundproofed. The double bedroom is adjacent to the kitchen, and the northern bedroom is off the lounge, so although we are not noisy by nature, there may be some ambient sound from the use of these spaces. Finally, our home is shoe-free inside and our cat isn't allowed outside, so please also don't let her escape!More
