About this listing
Quirky little inner city house - tucked away in a quiet street, but close to everything you'll want to see. The room on offer is air-conditioned, with a smart TV, iPod connected alarm clock, and opens onto an outdoor terrace area.
Welcome to Sydney!
This quirky terrace house has been recently renovated from its old corner shop origins to be a bright and airy open-plan designer residence with quality inclusions throughout. The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one of each occupied by the owner). The rented bedroom has a mirrored built-in wardrobe, and private access to the outdoor raised terrace area - perfect for catching a bit of Sydney sun. The room also comes with a double bed, an LCD TV with Foxtel/cable TV, and a radio/alarm clock that also acts as an iPod/iPhone charger and music player. It is also fully air-conditioned (as is the remainder of the house).
Guests have their own bathroom (on the ground floor), and use of the new kitchen (gas cook top and electric oven, dishwasher and fridge) along with use of the front-loading washing machine.
The lounge and main TV area is also available for use by guests. The house is situated in a quite street in Darlinghurst. The great thing is, it's just a minute from all the action. If you're not familiar with Sydney, Darlinghurst is right near the CBD, and is known for its vibrant night-life, shops and eateries. Maps of the area and walking tours will be made available to all guests.
Taylor Square (just one minute walk away) is a transport hub, with buses running into the city centre (just a couple stops away), as well as to Bondi Junction / Bondi Beach and Coogee.
A minimum three night stay is required.
* The guest bathroom is on the ground floor, while the bedroom is on the first floor of the house, so there are stairs involved.
* The Street View feature on this site depicts Flinders Streeet - not the much quieter Chisholm Street where the house is actually located.
* A surcharge applies for the New Year and Mardi Gras periods.
Thanks for checking out my listing, and I look forward to meeting you!
PS.... after hosting for around 2 years I had to cancel my first booking in May 2014, as the guest used an instant booking feature without first contacting me. PLEASE make contact before booking in case I have last minute work travel myself that may impact on bookings.
No smoking inside.
As I work full time I can only guarantee a late check-in (after 6pm). However, there is some flexibility with this, depending on your arrival day and time (any time on weekends is fine for example, and I can sometimes get away during lunch breaks if my workload permits).
So if you have your travel details and would like an earlier check-in..... please ask and it may be possible.
David was really welcoming and the room is well appointed. The property is well renovated and designed with downstairs guest bathroom a massive bonus.
Location is unbeatable, and I've decided to stay again.
David was a great host. We had a lot of privacy and the house is fantastic! It's a very beautiful home and is located nearby to everything you could want and only a short stroll to the city. Brilliant.
David's place is an adorable fully renovated Victorian double story shop front/terrace with all the mod cons. It is so incredibly central making for a quick walk to all the best Cafes and restaurants in Surry Hills. The location was perfect for me as I was in Sydney on business so was able to schedule a lot of my business meetings over coffee - David's location subsequently made my time very efficient. Upon arrival David provided clear instructions on the house amenities. He graciously provided a bottle of red wine (which I didn't drink but the thought was very much appreciated). We didn't see a lot of each other due to our busy work schedules. I unfortunately left my wallet at David's when I was in rush to leave so he offered to post this to me in Victoria.
His house is spotlessly clean and I loved having cable tv available in the room when I just wanted to chill out for a while. The house is located behind busy Taylor square but it get like it was locked away in a private suburb - there was no evidence of any street noise at all. A little oasis in a very busy intersection of Oxford and Flinders st. I look forward to having the chance to stay with David again in future.
It was really a nice and pleasant stay. The place is very neat and tidy and its exactly in the pictures! Dj was very accommodating and very flexible with the check in time as well. I appreciate it. Thank you for letting me stay David!
We had a great stay at David's place! The location is perfect...on a quiet street but only a block or so from tons of cafes, bars, shops, and restaurants. David also had some great food recommendations. Everything in the house was new and kept very clean & tidy. The terrace off of the bedroom is very nice. I definitely recommend staying here.
DJ was a fantastic host. everything was as advertised, lived up to the other reviews, and he couldnt be more helpful. I would absolutely stay with him again.
