Some More Detail….

New garden studio situated at the rear of my home, which is located in the Sydney suburb of Marrickville.
With it's own bathroom and kitchenette the Garden studio has it's own access down a side path of the main house, which is also used by the household chickens to access the front garden.
At night the path is lit with security sensor lights. It's a very quiet neighbourhood and the Garden Studio is a lovely sunny place to relax before or after sightseeing. Nice and quiet at night too if getting a good nights sleep is important.
Transport is good, with a 15 minute taxi ride to or from the airport in moderate traffic.
We are situated close to buses that take you to the city centre 8km's away. The nearest bus stop is a short 2 minute walk through the park at the end of the street.
Petersham Train station is a 10 minute walk away.
Marrickville train station is 15 min walk.
Dulwich Hill train station is a 10 min walk away.
An easy 15 minute walk away, Marrickville’s restaurant precinct is a great place to explore and enjoy affordable places to eat with a great diversity of food cultures, Vietnamese, Greek, Thai and Chinese and Japanese.
Dullwich Hill which is an easy 10 minute walk away provides the closest local shops with a good supermarket for supplies and a couple of good cafes, some great deli's and a good bookshop.
Every Sunday Marrickville’s popular organic market is open early until mid afternoon, a pleasant 15 minute walk it’s worth a visit.
Newtown is a short 10min bus ride away, or a pleasant yet slightly longer walk, 30 mins. Famous for it’s wonderful restaurants, cafes and shopping.

The Garden studio has only recently been built, with a modern bathroom and Kitchenette. The kitchenette is well equipped with a bar fridge, mircrowave, toaster, kettle, egg poacher and a toasted sandwich maker.
There is also a BBQ in the backyard available for guests to use. You are welcome to forage in the veggie garden for fresh herbs and spinach.
There is a TV and DVD player, with a selection of movies available. There is wifi for internet connection.
Muesli, porridge, milk and bread is provided on arrival in the breakfast hamper.
You can also enjoy a fresh egg thanks to Bette, Ingrid and Ivy the 3 household chickens, along with tea and coffee, homemade jam, and other toast spreads.
The queen size bed is situated up a ladder in a loft area. It’s an easy ladder to climb, but a ladder just the same so it may not suit everyone. Sheets are provided with Duvet and an extra blanket and an Electric oil heater during winter.
I work in the main house, so can be available if you need some direction, if privacy is more your thing we can make sure (for the most part) the back yard is all yours. The garden studio faces out on to the garden and then onto the photographic studio where I work, so there are people around in the main house during the week day business hours, weekends you would have the garden all to yourselves (except for when I may need to water the veggie patch).
As a Sydney local, and having lived in Marrickville for over 10 years I’m well equipped to help with any questions you might have about the city or local area.
If you are traveling with a car there is plenty of parking on the street, free all day.
You are welcome to email me with any questions you might have.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Thanks Cath we really enjoyed our stay at your place. Nice chookies and dog Hazel. Lovely to eat eggs from your chooks and pick greens and tomatoes from your garden! Right balance of privacy and contact - thanks we'll be back.

Fantastic 'Tiny house', these guys have thought of everything to make the stay comfy and easy. Easy to find, easy to stay, warm and clean. Delicious, free range, home laid eggs for breakfast. I climbed the ladder easier than I thought I would :-) Thank you very much Cath :-)

Cath appartment is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Sydney. The garden appartment is in a quite neighborhood but offers everything in close vincinity (shops, grocery stores, restaurants) and with the 2 Opal cards Cath provides you are perfectly equipped to use busses and trains to explore Sydney. I really enjoyed my stay and was treated like a king.

Amazing place, cosy and cute studio, almost felt me and my Wife stayed in a luxury treehouse with the bed on second level. Cath made some. Amazing hot cross buns, convenient little veggie patch and adorable dog to welcome us home, from our various Sydney outings, located conveniently to travel throughout Sydney!

Cath's studio is really lovely. A cozy set-up with everything you need plus some very kind considerations from Cath in the hamper. I would certainly stay there again.
