Charming renovated 2 bedroom Federation cottage located 500 metres from vibrant King Street Newtown (Sydney). Easy access to Newtown railway station, King Street bus routes and all of Sydney's attractions. Only a short walk to restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, theatre and gyms and a quick 5 km to the city centre. Close to the Airport, walking distance to Sydney University and Royal Prince Alfred Hospital. Fully Airconditioned with WiFi.

Furnished with a queen bed in each bedroom and a fold away single bed in one of the bedrooms. The cottage features open plan living and dining with a well equipped kitchen. High ceilings, fireplaces and polished floorboards lend ambiance to this inner western Sydney sanctuary. There is a sunny Mediterranean style courtyard at rear with off street parking. The cottage is an ideal base for exploring the best of Sydney and also a relaxing home away from home for those on temporary work assignments.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic holiday rental We loved our 5 day stay in this immaculate, spacious and fully equipped cottage, right in the heart of Newtown. Our dogs also loved the position with off leash Camperdown Memorial Rest Park just across the road (off leash all day Mon-Fri and before 9/after 4 on weekends). The cottage was very comfortable and cleverly designed to maximise space and includes all you need for a self-contained stay. The corner position by a quiet lane way meant it was much brighter and sunnier than the usual terrace. Kitchen and bathroom as new, and courtyard tidy and inviting. Little but thoughtful conveniences were also appreciated: sensor light at the front door for easy night time entry; keypad entry rather than keys; shopping trolley on the front porch; coat hooks in the hallway; well stocked pantry staples (sugar, salt, oil, flour, etc); fast wi-fi; excellent heating (very welcome during a cold snap); plus too many more to list. We know Newtown well, so we appreciated the excellent location: 1 minute walk to excellent coffee at '212 Blue', 5 minutes walk to city buses, Dendy cinema, IGA and the wonderful Bloodwood bar/restaurant. Booking with Robyn was very easy and pleasant - she responded quickly to all queries and was very patient with me when I mixed up our dates. We have stayed in many holiday rentals in Australia, Italy, Spain and the UK - this one rates 10/10.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great fringe CBD option Thoroughly enjoyed staying in this place. Were there almost two weeks in total. Well set up for the temporary visitor - all you need is there. Great location near Newtown's King Street area and within an easy walk of Sydney Uni campus and even Glebe/Camperdown if you like walking. Newtown train station within an easy walk. Plenty of F&B options and good supermarket within walking distance. Good for a family of 4 or so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best! We stayed here for a week while my child was competing at a swimming competition at Olympic Park. When it says fully equipped, it really means it. Everything was included, from glad wrap and spices in the kitchen, to washing powder and stain remover in the laundry. Little touches like umbrellas left in the laundry really added to the stay. The bedrooms are extremely comfortable and the living and kitchen area are fantastic. Newtown is a wonderful suburb with dozens of cafe and restaurants just up the road. Transport was extremely easy from the nearby station. The owner is amazing to deal with. We will definitely stay here again when next in Sydney.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this place! This place is the worst! Just kidding......I am so loathed to give this review because keen to keep it a secret. This is such a great house, with an amazing feel and fantastic location. Have stayed here with and without my son. Great on both occasions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We spent 6 weeks living in Jean Eileen before returning to the UK after 6 years living in Brisbane. We were keen to enjoy 'real Sydney', having only ever seen the city as tourists.Jean Eileen offered us a comfortable and homely environment to enjoy our stay in the heart of Newtown, a minute from the buzz of King Street but in a quiet and private enclave of the city. The cottage is well equipped and of the same high standard as I expect at home! We were delighted to have a private outdoor area in the courtyard where we regularly ate, drank, chatted and relaxed.Our dog Moccha was very comfortable and loved popping over to the huge park across the road where he met all the furry locals each day. The park has designated off-leash times but the reality is most dogs were off leash at any time as long as well behaved and everybody seemed happy with this. The cottage is well situated for decent walks to Sydney Park and Bicentennial Park as well as many other dog and people friendly areas!As a base to explore Sydney this cottage is ideal, being on major bus routes and a few minutes from the railway station. Why stay in Circular Quay when you can have the best of both worlds and be there in 10 minutes on the train, while experiencing what the real Sydney is like, living in Newtown? You don't need a car either to explore or to shop but parking is pretty easy if you do have one.It is worth mentioning the two local coffee shops overlooking the Oval which are within a stone's throw, serving great coffee, and food and also very dog friendly. The is also an abundance of restaurants both near and far and we were simply spoiled for choice.We really felt like locals living here and people were incredibly friendly and welcoming, making our stay even more enjoyable. I would highly recommend this cottage whether it is for a few days or a few weeks.
