The space

This terrace is situated at the edge of Surry Hills, newly renovated at the end of Feb 2016. Walking distance to all amenities. Cafes, restaurants, shops, supermarkets (Coles, Woolsworth and Aldi), parks, swimming pool, all within minutes of walking. Central station is just 600 meters away! There are also bus stops within 50 meters into the city, yet it is located in a quiet side street away from all the traffic noises. Chinatown is a 20mins walk. UTS campus 20mins walk.

This terrace has three double bedrooms (one is mine) and a self-contain private studio with it's own entrance.

The Studio on offer is fully furnished with a double bed, storage under bed, hanging rack, kitchenette, televison, reverse air cycle conditioner, fridge, microwave oven and an ensuite (private) toilet and shower. This Studio is Newly build and completed in Feb 2016, renovated throughout with modern finishes, American oaks floor, Wifi internet, sunny courtyard, internal laundry and dryer (I provide this free to my guests, so please be considerate and only wash when you have a full load and not just a few pieces at a time), free 1P and 2P on-street parking along the streets around the house (meaning you can only park your car for 1 or 2 hours per day, if you need whole day parking, please contact me).

I also have 2 other listing of private room:

Getting to my house:
Traveling alone, take the train to Central station ($16.40 one way from Domestic airport, $17.20 one way from International airport), its a 10mins walk from there to my house. Alternatively take a taxi (about $30-40 from Domestic/International Airport).

Traveling 2 people or more, just take a taxi from the airport (cost about $30-40 and takes about 20-30mins). The one-way train ticket from the airport to the city is $16.40 from domestic airport and $17.20 from International airport, so you are better off taking a taxi if there are 2 or more of you!

Check-in and Check-out:
Check-out: 11am (any later check-out is only possible if I don't have a booking on your check-out day), but you can always leave your bags elsewhere in the house (just not the room) until you are ready to leave.

Check-in time is after 12noon. You can always come earlier but your room may not be ready, you can leave your lugguge/bags in the houses and come back later when your room is ready. I work during the week, please communicate with me few days before your arrival to arrange check-in timing.

Security Deposit:
Please read about the Security Deposit on the FAQ section of Airbnb website. It has come to be knowledge that Airbnb no longer authorised the security deposit on guest credit card, another word guest/s do not actually pay the deposit. If a host makes a claim on the security deposit, Airbnb mediate and collect payment from the guest, as necessary.

A little about Surry Hills:
Surry Hills is a former working class suburb and garment district which has been gentrified over the years to become one of our most cosmopolitan inner city areas. This young and vibrant hub of entertainment and fashion is now best known for its design stores, thriving café scene and top restaurants. In fact, it offers a vast array of fare from around the globe, from cheap and cheerful eateries to fine dining.
Its streets are lined with quaint turn of the century terraces which have been renovated over the years and give it a distinct character. Many of its warehouses have been converted into trendy apartments and headquarters for many creative enterprises. Its close proximity to the city and nightlife make it a particularly desirable address for young professionals.

Surry Hills was ranked 23rd most stylish neighborhood in the world in 2012 by lifestyle magazine Complex.

Bordered by the suburbs of Redfern, Darlinghurst, Paddington and the city, Surry Hills is a creative and artistic hub. It has a prolific number of art galleries, the most famous of which is the Brett Whiteley Studio. The Surry Hills markets are held on the first Saturday of every month in Shannon Reserve on bustling Crown Street, drawing an interesting crowd that’s great for people watching.

At its eastern border you’ll find the busy thoroughfare of Oxford Street, home to an endless array of bars and clubs, while Central Station, one of Sydney’s busiest transport interchanges, is a brief walk away.

Getting around

Train and buses all within walking distance. If only visiting the city there is no need to purchase any traveling passes. However, I started providing my guests with the Opal card for their convience. I will let you know the value on the card/s when you arrive and all I ask is that you return the card/s with at least the same amount of value on it, more is of course welcome, if amount is slightly less that's ok, but if the amount is a lot less, maybe leave difference in cash. You can top up (min $10) the card at any 7-11 or convient shops, train station or online.
