Close to everything!
Transport, parklands, great dining, shopping and the CBD and beaches are only a short bus trip away!
Thanks for checking out our listing.
We have been VERY fortunate to have had some wonderful guests making sharing our home a very enriching experience.
There are 2 bedrooms available in a very nice, modern, well maintained and clean 3 bedroom terrace.
This listing is for the small sized room. If you want something larger please look at our other ad.
• Small cosy room (2.6mx3.0m)
• Queen bed
• Small bookshelf for clothes storage (NOTE: No hanging space)
• Quality Linen, Towels and Bathrobe
• Portable air-conditioner available
• For peace of mind, we have changed from our standard domestic home and contents to a business insurance to sure our guests are FULLY COVERED under public liability.
While the terrace is very unassuming from the street (some may say downright ugly and located on a main road, the old adage of "It's what's inside that counts" is well and truly accurate here as the living and most importantly sleeping areas are surprisingly quiet, clean, comfortable, and modern.
Fully furnished, your room will be ready with fresh linen, towels and bathrobe on arrival. Anything you need we can accommodate within reason. Just ask!
There are two shared bathrooms in the house.
The air conditioned living room is equipped with a massive plasma TV and a stereo receiver to plug in your iPod.
Internet is available for free.
The leafy back garden has a gas BBQ and outdoor table setting for 6.
Simple breakfast supplies are included for you to prepare in the morning. (Toast, cereal, eggs, tea, coffee, fresh milk). Please let me know if you have any intolerances and I'll do my best to make sure you're catered for. You can also have full use of the kitchen as long as you clean up.
The location is great! Surry Hills and Redfern is famous for its trendy eateries and designer stores. And these suburbs are highly sought to live in as they have a super cool vibe.
Take advantage of the bus services to the city or beaches only a few steps from the front door and many international restaurant offerings, trendy cafe's and coolest bars are just a few steps more.
There are parklands just across the road and Sydney's famous Centennial Park is just a short stroll away.
Please not that there are steep stairs in this house - therefore may not be suitable for persons with reduced mobility and defiantly not suitable for children.
There are two cats on the premises. If you do not like cats or are allergic this property will not be suitable.
There is a small cleaning fee added to your stay.
There is no parking at this property. There is street parking but it is timed during the weekdays.
Also note that the location shown on the map isn't correct, no matter how many times I contact airBnB about changing it, it doesn't happen. It just changes from one incorrect street, to another. I think as we speak its showing it right in the middle of a freeway or the park!

ABOUT SURRY HILLS AND REDFERN:
Surry Hills has the highest, concentration of restaurants in Sydney, a vibrant small bar & pub scene and numerous boutique fashion & retail stores. Located just 1.5kms south of the Sydney CBD it is served by train, light rail and bus. Basically, the coolest suburbs in Sydney!
Central Train Station is a 5 minute bus ride away. (or a very pleasant 20 minute walk). All Sydney trains stop here.
Bus - To Central - The nearest stop is 10 metres away
Bus - To CBD - The nearest stop is 120 metres away
From City - To beaches and Eastern Suburbs - is 30 metres away.
There is a mini market right next door and a major Supermarket just 5 minutes walk.
Major shopping areas are just minutes walking or by bus.
The area is famous for design stores and vintage clothing.
DIRECTIONS FROM THE AIRPORT:
We suggest a cab as the easiest and quickest option if you have luggage ($25-$35 depending on traffic and time of day).
And if there's 2 of you it is probably cheaper.
The Airportlink train is $15.40 one way. Exit at the Devonshire St exit (Southern Exit) and either taxi to Cleveland Street or walk (15 minutes) or jump on a but that will drop you off about 30 metres away (phone number hidden), m50)
Our transport ticketing system can be very confusing. It depends on how far you wish to travel over your visit and what mode of transport. They hope to combine this all into one "Opal Pass" soon.
If you want to explore and get lots of buses, trains and ferries (a ferry to Manly is an absolute must) or a train out to the suburbs then you'll need a "MyMulti" for a week it is about $61 and a month is $238 You could purchase this at the airport train station if you are coming in by train.
There is a "MyBus10" which is a 10 trip bus ticket that costs $17.60 and thats just the single zone, single trip for short distances, eg. from this home to around the city.

From where I am we are located you can walk to the city in 30-40 mins, enjoying a coffee along the way.

Had such a lovely stay, the room and location were just perfect.Also Melinda the host went above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable and had many great tips to share about the area. Highly recommended!!
Melinda's terrace is a cosy haven set in a busy corner of Surry Hills. Its in a convenient location, breakfast is provided, and there is a gorgeous courtyard out the back. Melinda is an excellent host. Highly recommended!
Melinda's home is located in such a convenient location - so near many different dining options, supermarket, bus stops, and parks. Her house is neat and clean, and she is a wonderful host. Would definitely stay there again.
I would highly recommend Melinda' house- she is a kind, helfpul and discreet host . Everything I needed was in the house and its location is very convenient with good transport connections!! Book here without hesitation.
It has been a pleasure to stay with Melinda. She is a very considerate host who is helpful with all kinds of information (buses, sights, restaurants, things to do...) and offers simply everything you could possibly need: A large kitchen, room in the fridge, bikes, laundry... Her apartment is in Surry Hills, located directly on Moore Park, still just minutes away from vibrant pubs and restaurants. And, if you need a cuddle, her lovely cats are available for this all the time :-). A 100 % recommendation!
Fantastic host! Very nice and well located house. Strongly recommended!
Melinda, thank you! We both loved our stay!
Melinda was great! Very helpful and friendly. You can for sure count on her for informations of the city or some good conversation about any subject. The bed was great! Very comfortable and cosy. The entire house was perfectly clean and extremely well suited at a strategic point of the city. No doubt that it is a smart choice.
Mel was a great host! The room is so bright and cosy. Location is fabulous, right in Surry Hills close to everything. Highly recommend staying with Mel!
Melinda was an absolutely wonderful host! The room was clean and tidy, and the location was wonderful for exploring the area. Her house is just beautiful and we loved her cats. Melinda was so kind and most helpful with tips on getting around town and ideas for our trip. I would recommend her to anyone staying in the area!!!
At first I was a bit hesitant at booking using airbnb.com but I decided to give it a go anyway. Staying at Melinda's place made me forget about all the hesitations I had. During the booking process she responded within a few minutes and we had booked our first stay almost instantly
Eventhough Melinda was abroad at the time of our stay, she made sure our stay was comfortable from check-in until check out. She had arranged breakfast-items for us to use and we had full access to the kitchen and equipment.
The place itself was really clean and comfortable and her two cats were super easy going and loved to be cuddled. The neighborhood was great too, a park close by, a supermarket within a 5 minute walk and close to many places you can grab a bite to eat.
We really enjoyed our stay and hope our future stays will be as pleasant and comfortable as this one. A big thank you to Melinda and her friend Mikey who stayed at her place during her absence.
