Climb the stairs, and you are in a world of your own. A luxury Queen bed, modern ensuite bathroom and forest view is yours. Its a house with Japanese levels of thoughtfulness, good people, and a cute cat and chickens.
This home was made for people who are busy changing the world, or at least their part of it, and need a leafy green re-charge, right here.
The main room is airy and high-ceilinged. There is a cute cat, and 3 chickens roam the garden. They will give you an egg for breakfast.
All this peacefulness is just 10 minutes to Sydney Central Station.
Our house is semi-Japanese. That means, we aspire to be super-observant, doing the small things that matter. Like keeping your room crisp and restful, and making you happy.
I usually have live-in assistants who help keep the place nice, and you looked after. We often do easy yoga in the evenings, and you will be invited to join in.
There is no T.V. here, that helps keep the place peaceful, and the human connections rich and lively.
Feel free to use the kitchen for your breakfasts, and you dinners too, by arrangement before booking.
We will make a spot for you to keep your ingredients.
Check in is from 4pm.
If you want an earlier check-in, just ask and we will arrange it for you, wherever possible.
As much or little as they wish.
I choose guests who I admire and enjoy, so our interactions are meaningful and fun. Because of the Japanese culture, we are good at yielding to each other, to make life collision free.
There are other wonderful, thoughtful volunteers and housemates living here, and are a joy to live with, even if you hardly see each other.
If you look at the profiles of my past guests, you will notice they are all rather wonderful.
I prefer to leave rooms empty otherwise.
"You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with".
If you are here, you are already an honoured guest.
I always choose great people.
You already know how to be a thoughtful, observant guest, no worries.

I'm a permaculture designer and Illustrator, with a serious commitment to making my world luscious. So far, so good, thanks to the excellent people who come and stay in my house, and who let me into theirs, long before AirB&B.
I've living and working part of each year in Australia, part in Tokyo, and little working trips all over the place.
I write a Magazine column in Japanese, 'Cecilia's Permacutlure Slow Life'. Its about creative ways to de-trap your life of wasted time, energy and affection, freeing you up to do the good work you were put on this world to do.
For 9 years Ive run a share-house for creative people - you can read about it on my Blog Balcony Garden dreaming
My hobbies are Sado (Japanese tea eremony), balcony gardening, fancy dress parties, and drawing illustrations of the quirky world I would like to live in, and often actually do. These are also my jobs.
Ive been a WWOOF host and traveler for many years (willing workers on organic farms). Even when my farm was just a balcony garden.
I don't have a life motto exactly, but when thing go wrong, I ask myself 'Whiner or designer?', and that gets me positive and resourceful, finding a way to make things better.
If things go wrong for you I won't say it though. I'll just help where I can xx
