About this listing

Our friendly vegetarian home is located close to Maroubra beach in Sydney. Buses to the city stop near the front door, and the bedrooms have lovely views to the sea. The kitchen, bathroom, lounge and garden are communal and set up for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We are very Muslim friendly, but we do not impose strict interpretations of Islam, such as an alcohol-free environment or gender segregation.

Being vegetarian the kitchen is halal, and we can provide prayer rugs if you wish to borrow them. We have two bedrooms available for guests, although one or the other may already be occupied by guests. The double room is modestly sized and is east facing with sea breezes. We have bedding and towels available if you don't have your own.

The bathroom is communal and clean. The kitchen is spacious and convenient for preparing meals, with an additional bar fridge for guest use. The household is fully vegetarian, so we ask that you respect this condition if eating-in. We occasionally watch films together and there is a projector in the lounge room, hooked up to a decent sound system on which you can also play records or connect your own devices.

You are welcome to share the communal areas in the house, and to make use of the garden and laundry facilities. We have a bokashi bin for food scraps and there are rubbish and recycling facilities by the front gate. There is a Hills Hoist in the garden (shared with the separate apartment downstairs) 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 which you're welcome to read while you are staying with us. 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 a (non-vegetarian) kitten who is very cute and likes human company, but please bear in mind that she must stay indoors.

We have previously found postgraduate students to be a good fit, as our home is best suited to mindful guests who are not just looking for a hotel experience. We expect our guests to self-cater and to be respectful of our neighbours and of our home. We ask that you do not store or consume any meat or fish or eggs on the premises, and that you only smoke outside.

Please note that a minimum booking generally applies, and that preference is given to longer stays. Unlike other beaches in the eastern suburbs of Sydney, Maroubra is laid back and not overdeveloped. As well as the popular surf beach you can swim at the beautiful Mahon rock pool, and there are some nice ocean walks, either north towards Bondi or south around the Malabar headland.

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 Herb'n'Sprout, along Maroubra Rd. There are two bus routes that service the city with stops near our front door, and buses take about half an hour to reach the CBD.

If you arrive in Sydney by plane it should cost about $25 to get an uber or taxi to our place, and if you are travelling in your own vehicle there is always free on-street parking. A stroll to the beach is about five or ten minutes by foot, and UNSW is fifteen minutes away by bicycle. The grass verge down to our front gate from the footpath is a bit steep, and there are also steps up to our front door, so access for guests without full mobility would be difficult.

Being an older house, there are some great period features such as high ceilings, stained glass windows and polished floorboards, but the rooms are not soundproofed. The double bedroom is adjacent to the kitchen, so although we are not noisy by nature there may be some ambient sound from the use of this space.

Finally, our home is shoe-free inside and our cat isn't allowed outside so please also don't let her escape!

about your host

David C

We are a married Muslim couple with a friendly cat, sharing our vegetarian home in the beach suburb of Maroubra, 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 happy to host people from all faiths and walks of life - we are used to hosting guests from around the world and we look forward to having you to stay!
