Interaction with Guests
I live next door to this apartment and I am available if any need anything. I also have a room and bathroom in my apartment that I rent on airbnb, so can accomodate a further 2 people in that space if wantded to be close to family or friends.
I also provide extensive tourist information and details of what to do in the area.
Location, location, location... This is ideal location for exploring everything.
You are 15 mins walk to the CBD (downtown/ main shopping area/ center of city) 10 mins walk down to the harbour/ waterfront, 5 mins walk to the pulsing nightlife of Kings Cross and Oxford St, 15 min walk to Chinatown and the village style hipster hangout Surry Hills.
You are well serviced with transport options. Buses are just 2 mins around the corner and come every 5 mins. King Cross and Town Hall Stations are an easy 10/15 mins walk. The airport shuttle bus picks up and drops off across the road and airport is a quick 20 min taxi ride.
The area is spoiled for really good eating out options from high end fine dinning to interesting celebrity chefs, local bistros and the best hole in the wall style Asian across the road. You can eat well at anytime of day on what ever budget all within walking distance.

The area it's self has a lot of character and interest and the locals are a mix of ages/ corporate/ bohemian/ artistic/ gay/ straight/ different cultures all living in harmony.

Other Things to Note
The apartment is on the top floor with 4 flights of stairs to climb and no lift. It is great for fitness and your legs but can be a challenge for anyone with mobility/fitness problems.
The trade off being in the thick of city living is that you do get general noise outside especially at weekends.
I expect my guests to treat my apartment with respect and look after it as they would their own home.
Though we are based in the heart of the city the block I am situated in is quiet, this is not a party house and we all treat our neighbours with respect.
If it is possible I try and accommodate guests early and late checkins by having them leave their luggage in my apartment next door till the other apartment is ready or they are departing.
