I'm looking for someone to rent my room for about seven weeks while I'm away. The house in Newtown, a stone throw from St Peters station and about 10-15 minutes walk to the Hub of Newtown. Without hyperbole, Newtown is the absolute best place in Sydney. It's got great bars and pubs and restaurants and cafes – many right near this house.
The room is large and boasts a phat and comfy bed. There's art on the walls and a stereo with great sound you plug your phone into. And there's a desk! I know, right.
The loungeroom is big with a TV. Incredible! But there's more. We've got high-speed internet (by Australian standards, which dropped from 30th in the world to 60th. Thanks Turnbull. But you can't hold that against this place). And that's free for you to consume all you want. Plus the TV has a chromecast if you want to watch stuff from the internet on the TV (true!).
We have a kitchen too. And you can cook in it if you want. It's clean like the rest of the house. And we have a bathroom with one toilet and there's an “outback dunny”.
But wait, there's more.
Did I mention the laundry? Well we have one too. And a hills hoist. What's that you ask? Only one of best inventions Australia has claimed to have given this world affected by climate change and rising sea levels. Hang that laundry up and let the Australian sun and a cool Sydney breeze take care of it. Two hours and it can be done. Nine out of 10 watchers of things drying say it's better than paint. You be the judge.
My flatmate and I share the same name and work in the same profession. We're both newsmen. We're down to earth realists who love great conversation and tea and beer and whiskey.
So if you want to meet some real people and live in a great spot for a few weeks then drop us a line. Oh, but I won't be there because it's my room you're renting of course.
