Wybalena Grove is a unique, architectural award-winning, heritage-nominated, locally-renowned neighbourhood. Convenient to the city and both major universities by car, bus or Canberra's safe & scenic bike paths. Double glazing, gas log fire, bamboo floor, great toys & organic cotton linen.

Keep fit walking local bushland or up Mount Painter, play tennis or run amok in our two private playgrounds.

Save money cooking in a well-equipped kitchen or even invite guests for a wood-fired pizza! :)

The space
You won't believe you are just 5kms (10 min drive) from Canberra City Centre! You'll feel like you're on a country holiday one minute and in the nation's capital the next.

Conveniently located and yet beautifully leafy and quiet. You will enjoy feeling part of the local community.

Your home away from home offers these comfort features:
* ample light with large windows overlooking native gardens
* a gas log fireplace to keep you warm in winter
* fully equipped kitchen with high quality crockery, cookware and appliances (including dishwasher)
* internal laundry with front loading washing machine, and external clothesline
* shower and bath
* new floating bamboo floors
* queen size bed in one bedroom
* trio bunk (double below, single above) in second bedroom
* king single bed with king single trundle in the living room (for versatility/visitors)
* built in wardrobes in both bedrooms
* covered carport
* all linen (organic cotton) and towels supplied
* large shed for bike storage
* we can cater for toddlers and infants - cot, change table, high chair, play pen (just let us know what you need when you make your reservation)
* we may have some bikes for adults and/or kids upon request (discuss with us)

Please note that up to 7 guests could stay short term. It would be a little cosy of course. For longer stays five people maximum is of course more practical, as people won't need to be sleeping in the living room.

Nearby amenities: Canberra's finest olympic sized indoor swimming pool is also a handy 10 minute cycle or short drive away. Jamison Centre at Macquarie, a 15 minute walk, has a large outdoor swimming pool/waterslide park which is open in the warmer months.

Note that there is no current Energy Efficiency Rating for this property, as no formal energy efficiency review has been conducted since various energy efficiency improvements (such as double-glazing, re-insulation and sun shades) were installed.

Where you’ll be

Cook, Australian Capital Territory, Australia

Set up in the 70s as an intentional, cooperative community, Wybalena Grove is highly sought after by locals.

The community includes many public servants and academics, most typically with environmental sustainability or international development interests.

One of the more aesthetically pleasing and environmentally integrated architectural designs in Canberra, some people have said that Wybalena Grove's clustered housing somehow reminds them of a summer camp or resort-type complex.

Wybalena residents tend to be well educated and well travelled, as such they are also very welcoming of international visitors. This is great to keep our community vibrant.

Our neighbourly pizza oven get togethers are thus regularly inclusive of interesting newcomers.

Nearby the local shops at both Aranda and Cook (each 10 mins walk) have been recently been made more cool with popular, relaxed but funky inner city style cafes.

If you want a great big mall you'll have to go to Belconnen or the city, both 10 mins drive. But a bit nearer by, the mid-sized Jamison Centre has two big supermarkets, bakeries, fruit market and a few restaurants etc.

You've got it all really. Come visit!
