Sydney Eastern suburbs, close to beach, easy access into the city - Maroubra Beach home swap

My Maroubra Beach home is a modern apartment in a low-rise complex in a garden setting. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, microwave, gas cooktop, electric oven, large fridge and lots of appliances. Separate laundry with w/machine and drier. Sunny balcony.

The main bedroom has a double bed, built in cupboards and an ensuite bathroom with shower. The second bedroom is currently being used as my art and craft space, so is not available for use as a bedroom.

The apartment complex has well-maintained grounds with a swimming pool and tennis court for your use.

My apartment is on the first floor, up 14 steps from ground level. The basement garage also has 14 steps up to ground level. There is no lift.

The beach is a 5-minute level walk from my home, with several cafes and small shops on the way. My favourite is the Pavilion cafe-restaurant right by the beach, a lovely spot to gaze out over the bay and watch the surfers while having a coffee, or a
casual lunch of local prawns and a glass of chilled prosecco or a cold beer.

About the location

Maroubra is in Sydney's eastern suburbs, about 10km (6 miles) from the city, Opera House and harbour. Good bus service takes about 30 minutes into the city. Maroubra Beach is a wide sandy bay a 5-minute level walk from the apartment. Near the beach there are cafes, shops, and pub. Maroubra Junction, a 5-minute drive or bus-ride away (or 15 minute walk), has supermarkets, delis, cafes, post office, banks etc. Several golf courses nearby, most in spectacular positions near the ocean.

You can get a bus from here to the Sydney Opera House for music and opera. Sydney is a vibrant, cosmopolitan city with many museums and galleries, excellent theatre options, a writers' festival in May and a film festival in June.

The Blue Mountains are a two-hour drive away, or if you prefer to use public transport, a bus to Central Station takes 20-30 minutes, then a train from there takes about 2 hours to the mountains.
