Quality Renovated Inner City House

House - Private room · Chisholm St, Darlinghurst, NSW 2010, Australia

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I stayed at David's house for a few days while traveling through Sydney. He was a great host: helpful, considerate, and accommodating. He also had great tips and suggestions for exploring the area. His house is perfectly located centrally yet quietly tucked away. On top of that, his place was just like the pics...just amazing! I would highly recommend David (and his place) as a host and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there the next time I am in Sydney!

  • We've stayed at Davids place for 7 days and it was as beautiful as in the pictures. Although we didn't see David a lot, he was a great host and provided everything we needed.
    The location is amazing; Darlinghurst is a very lively neighbourhood, though the house' location is very peaceful. Within 200 meters is a busstop that brings you to Bondi beach or the Sydney Harbour both within 15 minutes.
    Also nice is Surry Hills, a lovely neighbourhood to go out for dinner or a drink, which is located within a 10 minute walk from the residence.
    We surely recommend this place!

  • Had a great stay here, it was clean and spacious and had everything I needed. The location was perfect with Surry Hills and the CBD only a short walk away. If you're new to Sydney, there's plenty of advice where to go and what to see too. I highly recommend it.

  • DJ was a very nice host.

    The room and the bed are very comfortable. You get your own bathroom which is a very nice plus. The apartment is very well located, well connected in terms of public transportation. Recommended.

  • We stayed for only 3 nights, which is far too less for such a great place. Loved the little terrace, perfect connection to city and sights (we walked a lot), super internet connection, luxury textiles and even our private shower... Everything was as expected and better. David was a perfect host. We'd love to stay there again and definitely recommend it.

  • We spent a week (during New Year's Eve) at Dj place. Everything was perfect : room clean with terrace and bathroom clean. Location is very good (restaurants, bars , bus connection, etcc). Definitely a place to stay. Bye Dj

  • I stayed in this guest room end of December for three nights. I had an excellent stay here, my first Aibnb experience. David was a great host. The room was exactly as described. Clean, very near to city centre, own bathroom, ... I have not a single thing to complain about and would stay here again, should I travel again to Sydney.

    January 2014
  • I had a wonderful 4-day stay with DJ, who was very nice and welcoming. The apartment itself was perfect; clean, spacious and in a perfect location. I had my own room with air-con, TV, closets etc. and even had my own bathroom!

    If you're in Sydney I can definitely recommend staying at DJ's!

  • David was a great host during our stay at his place in Sydney. His house is very clean, comfortable, and well located. Several nice neighborhoods are within walking distance from his place, easy access to the major sightseeing attractions by bus around the corner, affordable places to eat, bars, clubs, and much more close by. David was friendly and we even were able to catch a few drinks with him. Great host!

    December 2013
  • I really enjoyed my stay at David's place. He is very helpful and friendly host. The room is really comfortable and clean. Definitely will stay here again if I visit Sydney one day.
