We are a retired couple living in a comfortable,clean, old terraced cottage in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs. We are within ten minutes walk of Bondi Junction traina nd bus station (three metro stops to the city), Westfield Mall, cinema, cafes and restaurants galore, and  all other facilities. Queens Park and Centennial Park are just down the road, while the beaches of Bondi, Tamarama and Bronte are half an hour's walk away. You won't need a car here. 

Our home has a master bedroom with en-suite upstairs. At ground level is the tv room/study, with Foxtel and wifi, a family bathroom, single bedroom with bunk beds, cottage kitchen, and family/dining room. 

Downstairs, in the undercroft of the house beneath the kitchen and family room is a self contained studio. This is accessed through the garage via the rear lane. The studio is usually rented out to a single professional person so our house sitter needs to be sensitive to when they are home, as we have wooden floorboards and noise transference could be a problem otherwise. Basically we try to be particularly quiet at those times and  restrict any entertaining of family and friends to when we know our visitors will be out. 

We don't have a garden, just a courtyard downstairs and a small front porch/yard area. Neither do we have any pets so house sitting duties will just involve keeping the front of the house looking clean and tidy - there are usually leaves to sweep up from the lovely big tree in the street outside.  The same applies to the courtyard downstairs, keeping it swept,  and to water the plants as necessary.  Keeping the home aired and dusted would be a bonus, as well as checking for junk mail, and generally taking care of security. This is a safe, family area, a great base from which to enjoy all that sydney has to offer.
