Our friendly vegetarian home is located close to Maroubra beach. Buses to the city stop near the front door, and the bedrooms have views to the sea. The kitchen, bathroom, lounge and garden are communal and set up for a relaxing and comfortable stay.
We have two bedrooms available for guests. Both rooms are modestly sized but are east facing with good size windows and sea views. We have bedding and towels available if you don't have your own. The bathroom is communal and clean. We occasionally watch films together and there is a projector set up in the lounge room, hooked up to a decent sound system on which you can also play records or connect your own devices.
The kitchen is a good size for preparing meals. There is plenty of cupboard space and we have a separate bar fridge for pickles, kimchi or other 'fragrant' foods :)
You are welcome to share the communal areas in the house, and to make use of the garden and laundry facilities. We have a small worm farm for food scraps and there are rubbish and recycling facilities by the front gate. There is a Hills Hoist in the garden and there are indoor clotheslines in the laundry in case it rains. For relaxing at home we have an eclectic library of DVDs and plenty of good books - just don't take them with you when you leave!
We enjoy a shared meal or watching a movie together when we're around, but you can choose to spend time with us or not, as suits your plans. We have previously found postgraduate students to be a good fit for our home, as it is best suited to mindful guests who are looking for something more than just a cheap place to stay. We expect our guests to self-cater and to be respectful of our neighbours and of our home. We are generally unable to have pets in the household and we ask that you only smoke outside. Please note that a minimum booking of five nights generally applies, and that preference is given to longer stays.
Security Deposit (optional)
We may ask for a bond for longer stays but we can discuss this as needs be.
Unlike other beaches in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Maroubra is laid back and not overdeveloped. There are supermarkets and smaller shops nearby at Maroubra Junction, and there are some great little cafes opening up in the area, including the Grumpy Baker and Chalk, near the beach, and the vegetarian Chia Bar, along Maroubra Rd.
There are two bus routes that service the city with stops near our front door. If you arrive in Sydney by plane it shouldn't cost much more than $20 to get a taxi to our place, and if you are travelling in your own vehicle there is always free on-street parking outside. A stroll to the beach is about five minutes by foot, and UNSW is fifteen minutes away by bicycle.
Payment Details & Cancellation Policy
Time Of Payment
Please pay half on confirmation of booking and half on arrival, or set up regular EFTs for longer stays.
Please pay directly by EFT or PayPal.
Our cancelation policy on AirBnb is 'strict', so the same terms apply here.
About Your Host
We are a married couple, sharing our friendly vegetarian home in the beach suburb of Maroubra, in Sydney.
We travel as often as we can, both in Australia and overseas, and we love to get out and about in nature - even if it's just a weekend away in our trusty camper van.
We are open, honest people and we like to think of our home as an environment where people can connect and share rather than just as a space to eat and sleep.
We are from multicultural backgrounds ourselves and we enjoy hosting guests from around the world. Being vegetarians we always appreciate hosting vegetarian or vegan guests, and we look forward to having you to stay!
