Perfect for a single or couple as it sleeps two on the chiropractic, comfortable queen bed. We do not have a cot nor extra sleeping facilities in this property for more than two people. Babies are welcome, but you will need to bring your own bedding and extras.
The studio does not have AC. Installing AC in this studio would be in vain as the studio does not need extra cooling. The studio is on the top floor and has a wonderful cross breeze that all have loved and enjoyed. It also faces east so only gets the morning sun, not the hot afternoon western sun, were it on the other side of the building it would be a different story. The studio has a large fan (see pictures) if extra cooling is required, but beyond the fan, AC is not needed at all. We have had guests in this studio for 4 years during record temperature Summer heat waves and never had we had feedback about there requiring AC. It's a lovely breezy space.

The New South Wales region
Beaches and surfing in NSW
If a world championship competition for the best beaches was held, New South Wales would have to be disqualified on grounds of unfair advantage. The State’s coastline stretches 1590km with a grand total of 892 beaches including Sydney’s famed harbour and ocean beaches and seven of Australia’s National Surfing Reserves.
With all that choice, you’re bound to find just the right beach for a surfing weekend, a surfing road trip or a fun-packed beach holiday with the kids. World-famous surf breaks attract keen surfers from around the globe but there are also plenty of beaches where you can learn to surf with an accredited surf school.
Great food and wine across NSW
Award-winning top-rated restaurants are liberally sprinkled across New South Wales from Leura to Orange, Byron to Mildura with committed chefs attracted by the abundant, quality, seasonal produce. You can stock up on delicious gourmet goodies at the farm gate, artisan bakeries, family-owned wineries and the regular farmers’ markets that are now a tourist feature of most major NSW towns.
Stay for a short break or long weekend to enjoy a regional cooking class or wine tasting course. Impress your friends with rare vintages, organic hand-made cheeses and fresh seafood from some of the cleanest waters in the world or a box of succulent organic figs, juicy peaches or crisp apples.
On your travels you’ll also discover that some foodie pleasures never fade. Lunch on the veranda of an old country pub, fish and chips on the beach, an afternoon cream tea in a quaint café or tasting fine wine made by a third generation wine-maker.
NSW road trips and scenic drives
The best scenic drives take you on road trips of sheer pleasure and discovery. In New South Wales, there are tourist drives and scenic road trips that let you explore at your own pace, spend time with the whole family on a new adventure or meet new friends in a holiday park.
