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.
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.
DJ was a nice host. He was there upon our arrival. Great location if you want the hustle and bustle of Darlinghurst. House is located in a very quite neighborhood. For two grown adults the room is a little small, plus luggage makes for a tight fit.
Location, location, location! DJ's place is in a great location. The accommodations are modern , comfortable and nice. As a host DJ is great. He was very welcoming, during my entire stay I felt welcomed and at ease. I highly recommended DJ.
It was an awesome stay. The place is beautifully decorated and it looked totally the same in the photos. It was clean, neat and nice hospitallity by David. The place is very near town, walking to the stations was so easy. Overall I love the stay and thank you for the stay and holding you up on the first night : ) Awesome! I will come back again.
We had a pleasant stay in David's appartment and it is a great location for exploring the city. The surroundings are very cozy with a lot of restaurants and cafe's nearby. The room was fine and clean and we especially enjoyed the adjacent balcony. David was very helpfull host when needed. We would definetly recommend the place to others. Lone & Birger
Three reasons why you should definitely stay here:
- Perfect location: in a quiet street and yet close to both the city centre and gastronomic paradise Surry Hills. Very well served by public transport too.
- The house itself is smartly renovated, the room and your bed comfortable, and you have your own bathroom and even a terrace!
- You stay with a very attentive host. He seems to be online all the time, replying instantly, which is really practical for bookings or any further questions. And he has just thought of everything, including a charming welcoming package and a booklet with the best local spots to have breakfast, lunch, dinner, a drink...
This has been my first experience with airbnb, and a real good one!
Inner city Sydney guy, loves to travel, but has mostly only explored Europe and the US so far! Favourite destinations are Berlin, New York, Chicago, and Barcelona. Looking forward to exploring more, and hosting visitors from all around the globe!
