The space

My ground floor apartment with high speed broadband internet is located in the heart of the inner-west area of Newtown, less than 5km from Sydney city centre and 8km from Sydney International Airport. It's available for short-medium stays.

Originally a church building, it was converted to apartments about five years ago. My apartment consists of three levels and my guests are accommodated on the ground level.

As the kitchenette is only equipped with the most basic food/drink preparation items (toaster, microwave oven, electric jug) and as there is NO SINK (except for the sink in the shared laundry), this is not the ideal place to stay if you want to self-cater. There are many excellent and cheap places to eat out in Newtown and Erskineville and most people who stay at my place are only too happy to take advantage of these.

Guest access

Guests have access to a shared laundry on the ground floor.

Interaction with guests

As I live on the top two floors and work from home, I'm often around during the day and night. Interaction with me is entirely up to you. You can be as anonymous and private as you like, or join me for a chat, coffee, wine, if that's what you feel like doing.

Other things to note

1. I have a dog so if you don't like dogs, this is not the place for you.
2. Please note that there is no sink in the kitchenette but guests can access the laundry sink for (minimal) washing up.
3. No smoking

This studio apartment is beautiful, and Lynn is a perfect host. The home is in a quiet and relaxing location, and only a short walk to shops, restaurants, and the train station. Highly recommend this place to stay! Thanks Lynn!

Nice relaxing quiet space but still close enough to walk to the action. Great communication too! Thx Lynn.

This is a great little haven that served me well on a fast and busy work trip to Sydney. Lynn was friendly without intruding, I slept well and was staggered to find her book collection mirrors my own closely. The ones I didn't have I wanted!

Others have said the same about my book collection. Like minds!

We had a great stay at Lynn's place. Lynn has a beautiful home in a great location. Lynn was an excellent host and made the stay easy and comfortable. This will be our first choice of place to stay when we are next in Sydney and would recommend it to everyone.

I'm a graphic designer, Silverfox model, Airbnb host, mother of four wonderful adult kids + one fabulous daughter-in-law, besotted dog owner and live in the top two storeys of a beautiful, light-filled three-storey apartment.

Sharing my home with Airbnb guests is one of the best things I've ever done. It's given me connections with many amazing people. I've found that the kind of people who choose Airbnb are adventurous, friendly, warm, intelligent, curious and often have fascinating stories to tell about their own lives.

When I travel, I stay at Airbnb places and each place I've chosen has been unique, full of character and has offered so much more than a stark and sterile hotel room. Meeting my hosts has been another benefit - they are all wonderful people.

In 2014 I travelled to Japan, the UK, Spain and Bali. I stayed in eleven fantastic and diverse Airbnb properties, and met some wonderful hosts and their families and friends. In 2016 I travelled again to see my family members who live overseas and stayed in Airbnb accommodation in London, Brighton, Copenhagen, Paris and Munich. It's the only way to go!

I have a dog – a Lagotto Romagnola – whose name is Mucca and she shares my space upstairs. She's very friendly and lovable and is classified as 'hypoallergenic' so should not be a problem for guests with allergies.
