Interaction with Guests
There is a key safe on the door to pickup keys conveniently. I will give you the combination the day before check in. Check in is 2pm if nobody is in there the day before you might be able to get in early. Otherwise I can arrange a place to at least drop your bags while the place is cleaned. I work next door so if you have any questions or problems we can help you out easily. If its a weekday when you arrive, i will try and greet you and show you around the place to point out a few good spots to check out in the area then you will have the space to yourself for your entire stay. Just call us if you need us.

My friends and I had a great stay at Dean's, fantatsic location, easy walking distance to local cafes and restaurants. The house was clean and presentable. Dean made staying here super easy and although we already knew the area he was very enthusiastic about offering advice if needed. Thank you Dean!
Perfect location to visit Sydney! Cute little house, it was very easy to find. Thanks!
Fantastic location. Smells a bit musty and mouldy inside and the photos make it look a bit brighter than it actually is. But overall it was cheap, cheerful and charming and accomodated the three of us comfortably.
Thanks for the feedback Matthew & Rose. After rain the back courtyard can be damp. I've installed a de humidifier out there so guests can switch it on from time to time. The brightness is those green saver globes I just installed I may install some normal ones so the lights are bright.
We stayed here for 2 nights over the weekend with 4 guys in total. Dean responded to all my messages really quickly and was always really helpful. He was real easy going with everything and we didn't run into any issues with the booking at all.
Location was great as it was a 10 minute walk from the main places we needed to get to. Neighbourhood was extremely safe and easy to find.
Some maintenance and renovation work could be done around the house, but overall was a great experience. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks again mate!
Friendly and responsive host, Dean was a great host. The house was perfectly positioned and well fitted out. Would recommend the place to everyone for a good little getaway in Sydney!
Dean was super helpful with everything from moving in, communication about the apartment and just learning our way around Sydney. The location is awesome, walking distance from everything in the city. If you are okay with walking about a mile or so you don't even need to take public transportation.

About the Host, Dean
I'm a technology founder who loves to travel. I own a restaurant/ cafe close by so during the week you can drop bags off early if checking in or leave them if checking out and have a late flight
In Sydney I love to go out and can recommend some great places to eat or go out drinking. Our place in Darlinghurst is right in the perfect location
