Dean is a responsive host and the location is unbeatable. However, if you're noise sensitive, it might be worth booking elsewhere or at least packing ear plugs since you're in the middle of Darlinghurst (i.e. you can expect to hear garbage trucks, social hum, traffic etc. in the wee hours of the morning). Pack an eye mask as well, as the bedroom blinds do little to block out the street light glare. All in all, good value for money.
Location is simply perfect, eventhough the lane is a bit dodgy with huge garbage containers and smels from the back of the next door restaurant. The house is indeed charming, however there were couple of little visitors (cockroaches) who kept us company..And the bathroom could use some renovation. But, then again, I guess the price wouldn't be this good.
Dean is very friendly and helpful.
My family stayed over at Dean's house for a week and they really liked it! The place was impeccable and very well located (walking distance from everywhere in the city). Dean was very fast on answering any queries my family had! Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I will definitely refer my family/ friends to his place whenever they come to Sydney. (Note: my mom was very happy with the fresh flowers she found at the dining table).
Gorgeous little house in the best location!! Quick walk into the centre of the city. Buses nearby to Bondi. Couldn't ask for more! Dean was very accommodating, an awesome host :) might want to bring an eye mask though if you're sensitive to light while sleeping as there's a really bright light outside that shines into the bedroom windows. Other than that, perfect!!
Dean and Melissa were great hosts and very accommodating to all our needs. The house is very quaint and excellently located within the heart of Sydney, walking distance to galleries, shops and the best restaurants. It was equipped with everything you could possibly need for a short stay. It's also an extremely good deal price wise. Good to note that it is near a few restaurants with some of the noises and smells of the inner city but that's the trade off for having such a good location.
The location is brilliant - Stanley Street is full of choice for places to eat and drink and there are also other cool options for eating and drinking within a couple of minutes walk in other directions from the apartment. We didn't try everything obviously but if you follow Dean's recommendations, I'm sure you will enjoy what you try, as we did. We walked to Circular Quay, through Hyde park - an easy and pleasant walk - and if you wander the surrounding area of the apartment you will fall in love with Sydney like we did! Dean was very helpful and easy to get in touch with. We enjoyed our few days in Sydney a lot and found the apartment a great base, plenty of space for us 3 and we were comfortable there.
Perfectly located in centre of city, within walking distance of many nice restaurants and bars. Dean was wonderfully flexible and allowed us to drop our bags off early despite the place being not yet ready. One thing to note, it did get very stuffy after a few hot and humid days, but this was the only downside we encountered.
Its a nice place to stay near city. basic facilities are easily accessible and all tourist spots are a short ride of taxi away.
The only major turn off was aircondition. If you are going in summer make sure that you can handle the heat. Also, one problem was that there is a restaurant back door next to the house and some garbage bins which occasionally had a foul smell making it impossible for us to open windows.
Otherwise its a very good house. Dean has provided all the basics in the house with utensils, microwave, gas, heater, some spices etc. Wifi is if good speed and there is a bose minilink speaker which was killer.
House in an excellent location in walking distance of the centre of the city. Generally clean with all the essentials provided. We had an amazing time in Sydney.
