Our terrace is perfectly located to enjoy the best that Paddington has to offer. Set on a quiet leafy street, it is a 2 minute walk to Five Ways and Oxford Street - close to cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, shops and buses.
The recently renovated terrace includes on the ground floor a formal lounge and dining area, bathroom, open plan kitchen and casual living area opening onto a deck and courtyard.
Upstairs there is the main bedroom (with queen bed) with french doors onto the balcony and a mezzanine level with built-in desks for two people and an extremely comfortable wall bed (the type that folds down from the wall and has a proper mattress.
Guests will have access to the whole house, a fully equipped kitchen, plenty of linen and towels.
TV and DVD
Interaction with Guests
Guests will be met at the house to handover keys and show you around. Other than that, guests will have full privacy at the house.
We are about a 2 minute walk to Oxford St where there are very regular buses to the Sydney CBD, Bondi Junction and Bondi Beach.
Our experience at Philippa's terrace in Paddington was excellent. First of all, location. We were looking for a location that would provide easy access to Sydney CBD and Bondi Beach, yet in a neighborhood convenient to pubs, cafes and grocery. This terrace is ideally suited for all.
In terms of amenities, we were very pleased with the kitchen facilities, allowing us the flexibility to cook with every appliance, dish, pan and item one could need! The wifi worked perfectly (often a rarity) and Philippa had left instructions just in case the router went out, which was appreciated. Her three-page guide to the house, neighborhood and public transportation was thoughtful and covered every detail.
Check in and check out was quick and easy with very smooth communication. For us as a traveling family, it was the perfect home base for 6 days, but would work well for a couple or friends traveling looking for a quiet, well-placed neighborhood.
For me this house is in the perfect location in Sydney - on an exceptionally quiet Paddington street but only 3 minutes walk from Oxford Street or 5 Ways, an easy walk into the city or to the harbour at Rushcutters Bay and on very quick bus routes into the city, to the inner west or to Bondi Junction and the eastern suburbs.
It's also a lovely little house, extremely well modernised. The host, Philippa was efficient yet laidback - a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.
We were made to feel very welcome and the house was perfect for a city break in Sydney. It's Paddington location, close to Fiveways and Oxford st, was great- easy walk into city or plenty of buses at either end of the street to city centre, Bondi etc.The house is cosy and has everything you could possibly need. We loved staying here and Philippa was extremely helpful with information and great communication.
My sister and I chose Philippa's house because it looked great and was very close to our sister's place in Paddington. We couldn't have been more delighted with both. The house really was a home away from home - it was beautifully renovated and had everything we needed; it was a pleasure to stay in. The location was superb - a minute's walk to Oxford Street and not much more to Five Ways, which has great cafes and food stores. Philippa met us when we arrived and was very welcoming. We saw her again before we left and told her we may be back!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Fabulously appointed home away from home in perfect location. Great shopping eating drinking all within walking distance. Phillipa friendly easy to contact very helpful and welcoming. Would definitely stay again and hopefully it will be soon !
