*****Please do not book without first sending me a message to check dates and prices. Also read the full description. You'll notice the monthly prices work out better value than weekly prices as we prefer medium to longer term guests. Thanks*****

If you check out my other listings such as Scruffy Old Campsie Guesthouse then this is a self contained studio in the back courtyard of the main house. At one stage it was a double garage but has been fully converted into two studios sharing one common wall.

You have about 15m2 of living space - one large room. There is a double bed, two bunk beds, a small table which can seat four if needed. There is also a kitchenette with convection oven, microwave, kettle, toaster and kitchen supplies. And a bar fridge. Room dividing curtains can be used to block off the bunk beds for a bit more privacy too.

There is no running water into the studio so for washing dishes you need to walk across the courtyard to the main house. The same for toilet and bathroom - it's about 3 meters away and you have your own key to the main house too so you can watch TV, use a full kitchen and fridge and bathrooms too. WIFI internet does reach from the main house.

Parking can be provided and you can use the external laundry, courtyard, BBQ and verandah with other guests on the property.

The courtyard is fully fenced so if you are traveling with pets or small children they are safe here and cannot get onto the road outside. This studio is perfect for kids as it opens onto the courtyard directly.

This studio is suited for those that do not need an active host, as I do not live on site. My father lives in the studio next to this one so you can ask him questions about the local area and have a chat over a beer. Other than that you will be left on your own. The Studio is suitable for independent travellers.

Campsie itself is not a tourist area. It's a mostly Asian area with a ton of great local shops, supermarkets, a shopping mall, cafes and restaurants. All only a five min walk away. It's cheaper to stay where the locals live and eat than in the city or at the beaches!

From here it will take you 20-30 mins on a train into the city centre and about 40mins-1 hour to get to the beaches.

I can also provide babysitting for families and any baby or child equipment you need free of charge.

A quick summary:

1) Must walk to the main house for bathroom, water and TV. Also internet if it is fading out because of bad weather(90% of the time is fine)
2)The outside of the studio is darn ugly! Also the back of the main house is darn ugly so there are no decent views here.
3) You share one common wall with another studio that my father lives in.
4) There are big trees in the courtyard so dirt or leaves can blow in at times unless you keep the door shut. It is very hard to keep the floors clean with the doors open.

BUT..here are the best bits in summary:

1) Large and private - especially if it's a single or couple who don't want to interact with others much, or need to study etc.
2) Great for kids who can run straight outside to play safely and you don't need to worry about their noise or mess.
3) Kitchenette with bar fridge means you can cook basic meals alone in peace.
4) Hotel linen with commercial washing done every two weeks on your sheets and towels.
5) Close to shops and transport and on a direct bus route from the Airport.
