About This Listing
This 2 bedroom apartment is everything you need for a short or long term stay in Sydney for singles, couples and small families. It's recently renovated and with all the comforts of your own home.
We are 10 mins walk into the CBD, right on the doorstep of the cafe, bar and restaurant precincts that are Surry Hills, Darlinghurst and Potts Point and 5 mins to Kings Cross Station. Bondi Beach is just half an hour by public transport and Rushcutters Bay a stroll down the road.
The apartment can comfortably accommodate 4 adults and has brand new everything - The kitchen is large in size and amazing in appearance with marble bench tops and 'Smeg' appliances. The bedrooms both contain queen sized beds, both with built in robes. The bathroom features a deep bath with integrated shower. We have secure parking for one car, internal laundry facilities, free WiFi, optional cable T.V if requested (at an extra cost - please ask) and a balcony. We have views of the city from the balcony and the Harbour Bridge from the main bedroom.
We love our apartment, smack bang in the heart of Darlinghurst yet on one of its quietest streets. We hope you love it too!
Guests will have access to the entire apartment including the pantry which is stocked with all the things that you don't want to carry or buy for short trips such as spices, sauces etc. It is great for those that want to cook in sometimes.
The apartment has a huge array of DVD movies and series box sets. Essentially the apartment is a complete home away from home.
Interaction with Guests
Guests can contact me at any time via email or mobile telephone. I will do what i can to assist them, but essentially I will just check you in and leave you to enjoy the apartment and all that Sydney has to offer. I try to keep my interactions with my guests to a minimum unless you wish to contact me.
The Darlinghurst / Surry Hills area is arguably Sydney's best restaurant and cafe precinct. There is no reason to cook whilst you stay in my apartment because the food all in walking distance is incredible and can be found at very reasonable prices.
Buses and trains are all within walking distance. The CBD is a 10-15 minute walk away from the apartment also.
We just ask that you respect and enjoy our apartment like it was your own. I must stress that our apartment is 'NON-SMOKING' in or on any part of the apartment. Pets are not allowed and no parties of any description (we like our neighbors too much!).
Mitch, was a pleasant host end-to-end. He has been responsive and helpful during the initial booking stage even giving us suggestions on challenges that we faced in our schedules. He welcomed us to his lovely unit and even though he didn't have to, helped me carry our very heavy luggage up his place. The tour of the house was well thought of, going through all the amenities, do's and dont's, etc. The place and neighborhood was exactly as advertised and I would definitely book this for my family's trip to Sydney next year.
Mitch was easy to communicate to and was happy to answer any questions.
The flat itself was immaculate and had everything you would need including a car space and the location was very handy.
The flat is on a nice, quite leafy street but only 5-10 min walk to Kings Cross station which takes you with to the city CBD or Bondi and plenty of bars and restaurants close by to choose from.
We will definitely come back the next time we want a city escape.
Mitch's place is great; exceeded our expectations! I didnt realise we were so close to the city, could see the city from the terrace! It is located on a quiet street, no problems with noise. Great local cafes and train station only 5min walk away. It is also possible to walk into the city, about 30mins.
Apartment is neat and clean and has everything you need (wifi, washer/dryer, shampoo, hair dryer, detergent etc). There is no air-con in the apartment (may be an issue if staying in summer) but fans are provided which was enough in May.
Will definitely stay here again next time we are in sydney, so much cheaper than a comparable serviced apartment.
We loved staying at Mitch's place, great location. Good space for a weekend trip! Their suggestions were great for the neighbourhood. A nice quiet place in the middle of it all!
The location of the apartment is really fantastic
So convenient and centrally located in a wonderful area of Sydney. We were very impressed with the space and thought it had a home away from home feel to it.
The equipment and amenities available for us to use, especially laundry detergent, dishwasher powder, cleaning products, groceries/spices/herbs were very handy
The apartment has a contemporary feel with plenty of storage space.
Public transport options are within a short stroll away. - you can reach the CBD in a fifteen minute walk.
Having enjoyed staying at Mitch's apartment we are even considering a possible move to the area ourselves in the future.
On a final note Mitch was fantastic throughout always replying promptly to any enquiries that we had.
We really enjoyed our stay at Mitch and Karen's apartment. Everything was in perfect order and everything was explained when we arrived. It was really easy to find restaurants, café's and amazing ice cream shops all within walking distance. We had a problem with the DVD player which Mitch sorted out really quickly which was fantastic. All in all a great place to stay. I would definitely recommend Mitch and Karen's apartment to everyone.

About the Host, Mitch
I'm a young professional living in Sydney Australia. I am now a seasoned Airbnb host with over 100 reviews with a 100% response rate.
From the first day of joining the Airbnb community, I've taken pride in making sure my guests are comfortable, stress free and are enjoying all that Sydney has to offer. Communication is paramount in developing a trusting relationship between a host and guest and I have always attempted to provide exceptional service and communication with my guests from the moment of their first enquiry. In short, my wife Karen and I try to make our guests stay in Sydney as close to perfect as possible.
I am well travelled, having been to the USA, Europe, South East Asia, Middle East, Central America and many others. Travel is our passion to say the least so I know what my guests are going through when they are in a foreign city. When we travel it's all about the food, bars and water views.
My wife and I love the areas we have our two listings. We couldn't recommend better areas to absorb the buzzing Sydney city lifestyle! Local knowledge is the key to enjoying the best food in both areas of our listings so if you have any questions regarding our apartment in Darlinghurst or the house in Leichhardt and need any suggestions with where to eat or drink, just shoot us a message and we're full of advice!
Looking forward to meeting my future guests!
