Australia Street Cottage

Bedrooms 1
Space 1 m²
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Australia Street Cottage offers contemporary style in an historic 1858 cottage. The interior is clean-lined but with a warmth that complements the extraordinary walls made of Sydney's unique Pyrmont sandstone, quarried in the mid-19th century by convicts.

With a queen bed, the cottage is perfect for singles and couples, and a queen sofa bed means it can accommodate small family groups. The kitchen is well equipped, the courtyard is sunny and private, and the wifi is free. The bathroom has a bath and hairdryer, the laundry a washer and dryer.

The cottage is in the ultimate inner-west position: a 15-minute taxi ride from the airport; a 4-minute walk from King St's restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, buses, trains, cinema, gym; a short train or bus ride to CBD, Opera House, Harbour Bridge; a 15-minute walk to RPA Hospital and Sydney University.

Beautiful character cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has been beautifully renovated and has a lovely feel. The all important kitchen and bathroom are modern and up to date. The location is very convenient - a few minutes from the train station and all that the Newtown town centre has to offer. A short train journey to Circular Quay, a 20 minute car ride to the Airport (or use the train).Even Australia Street is full of little surprises - basically a quiet street but cafes, pubs etc are dotted along it. I stayed with my father and we found the space very good. The beds were comfortable including the sofa bed. Everything was very clean and classy and Jane, the host, is excellent to deal with

Fantastic location, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

The Australia Street Cottage is a perfect place to stay for a Sydney break, just minutes from the cafes and restaurants of Newtown and from public transport into the city. The cottage is beautiful, well maintained and stocked with everything you need including much appreciated ground coffee and chocolates. The little courtyard is a real sun trap and the park across the road is a great place to while a few hours. Jane, the owner was so responsive and helpful. I will definitely look to stay here again.

Outstanding in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the cottage. It was superbly presented - with chocolates and rosy red apples as a finishing touch. The location is fantastic - just a couple of blocks from King Street, Newtown Station and the bus stop (an easy walk). A hop from Black Star Pastry and many other fabulous cafes. It is quiet - we experienced no noise from the street during our stay. The cottage is beautiful with facinating history. We used the sofa bed for my 17 year old daughter and she was very comfortable - it is a high quality bed. The kitchen is amaingly appointed with everything you might need to cater for yourself - even coffee and breakfast makings. Jane was wonderful to deal with and contacts for during our stay were provided. I couldn't have asked for more. We will definitely stay again. Newtown itself is a gem but staying at the cottage is the icing on the cake.

so comfortable and so convenient.

  • 5 of 5

we stayed for a week in november. Late arrival was no issue. Instructions to settle in were simple and concise. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and more. Walking distance to just about everything. 3 mins to trains & bus. Beds were comfortable and the cottage had an abundance of natural light inside. Couldn't fault the place.
