Large bedroom in a roomy, three storey terrace house close to Victoria Street Cafes and a 3 minute walk to Kings Cross Station. The area is filled with cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs. It is a mere 15 minute walk to the city. This location is near to almost anything you could want in Sydney and within walking distance to the harbor.
Your Room and Amenities
We have 2 bedrooms for our guests, so we can accommodate for up to 4 adults. We have our bedroom and bathroom on the top level, so the guests have exclusive use of the bedrooms and bathroom on the middle level.
The first guest bedroom has a stylish queen size bed with a king-size doona, and with a quality mattress and linen. The bed has an electric blanket and there is a spare doona on the cupboard. This large bedroom has a balcony attached with security doors on the balcony doorways.
The second guest bedroom has 2 long single beds, each with electric blankets.
Your own bathroom has underfloor heating.
There is a shared kitchen, separate laundry (with a third toilet) and living room on the ground floor. The laundry is available for your use.
Cable internet connection with Wi-Fi in the house. The internet has download speeds more than 1Mbps. Our monthly allowance is 200Gb, and we use less than half of this, so you can do some heavy internet usage here.
We make coffee for ourselves and our guests in the morning.
For breakfast, we supply muesli, fruit and bread. There is yoghurt and milk in the fridge. Otherwise, there are several cafes nearby that have all-day breakfast menus.
Our terrace has been renovated by an architect and the design is stunning. We have glass flooring in the hallways to allow natural light to filter down to the bottom level. The stairs are floating to allow the circulation of air. We have a private sandstonecourtyard which has filtered shade provided by the large cherry tree next door. The house is very quiet considering the area in which we live as we do not have a road in front of our house. Instead, we are situated in the middle of beautiful, heritage sandstone stairs. The courtyard in front has a pale green, leafy robinia tree which provides extra privacy.
Our house had been published in 3 architectural magazines (Trends Vol.19, 2003, Houses No. 33, 2003 and Trends Vol. 22, 2006).
On Victoria Street, only a minute away, there are numerous cafes and restaurants, including a delicious ice-cream parlour (Messina), trendy cafes such as Tropicana & Bar Coluzzi from where one can watch the passers by, and soak up the lively inner city atmosphere.
Within a 3 minute walk, we have a supermarket, Coles, that is open from 7am to 11pm, 24hr newsagency, a medical centre, several pharmacies including a late opening one, a major Hospital (St. Vincents), fast food shops (Oportos, Dominos, Pie Face, MacDonalds) and gourmet restaurants (Fishface, Argentinian Boca, Malabar (Indian), Tastevin (french), Unas (Austrian)).
Kings Cross is merely 3 minutes away with all its tourist attractions, nightclubs and the seedier side of life. Rushcutters Bay is about 7 minutes away and has the CYC (Cruising Yacht Club of Australia) which organises the famous Sydney to Hobart yacht race and a large park with a cafe on the edge of the water. Oxford Street is 5 minutes in the other direction with all its attractions for the gay community. The city is only a 15 minute walk, or one stop on the train.
There are some stairs near the Cross where one can take a quick cut down to the harbour and Woolloomooloo Wharf which has some upmarket restaurants which specialise in seafood such as Otto and Manta. From there one is able to quickly access the Art Gallery, Botanic gardens and end up at the Opera house and rocks area. The botanic gardens open at dawn and close at sunset.
The Sydney Explorer and Bondi Explorer travel through Kings Cross and are services which give a good orientation for tourists. These tickets are valid for a day, so if you buy one at 1pm on Tuesday, it remains valid until 1pm Wednesday. Kings Cross station is merely 3 minutes walk away. There are shuttle buses that transfer people to and from the airport (we can give more information on this when you have booked).
We have a dalmatian that is very friendly. We have travelled around Australia with a camper trailer, before settling back in Sydney. We have 3 children who have left home, leaving us with 2 spare bedrooms and a spare bathroom.
Come, stay with us at our "darling Darlinghurst house".

We stayed there for one night. The room was clean and the hosts were very friendly. The location was very close to the opera house so we were able to reach everything within a short walk. Would go there again.
DEFINITELY STAY HERE!!!!
Jan and his wife are fantastic hosts, very helpful and very kind. They have a beautiful big house and no restrictions on internet usage. My only regret is that I did not stay longer with them. Thank you again for a wonderful stay
The house is a perfect location to visit Sydney.
The house is PERFECT. Jan and wife are a PERFECTS host for prepare your arrival and give you any information (thank you).
It's one of our pefered stay in Australia.
Thank you both of you!
We were very comfortable and made extremely welcome. The house is situated in a very trendy area, with easy access to the heart of the city. There was an abundance of restaurants in close proximity. The accommodation represented good value.
Jan and his wife are very nice host. The accommodations are awesome, contemporary & modern. The house location is central - working distance to the harbor or a short taxi ride. Jan's wife even help us do laundry and hang our clothes when we were out (not part of the deal and unexpected). Breakfast were very good. They gave very helpful directions to where to see and do in Sydney. I would stay again with Jan.
The accommodation was as in the photos put on Airbed.
Jan and Jill went out of the way to make sure we were comfortable and were helpful about where to go.
This was my first bnb but I would use the service because they made our stay a pleasant experience.
Harley, the dog didn't bark and but was a friendly animal
Ideal quiet central location near to train and bus transport, A dog owners home. Jan & Jill were good and helpful hosts and 'Harley' the Dalmatian being a friendly member of the family.
Our stay in Darlinghurst was was fun. The Terrace house is unusual and quirky beware coming out of the bathroom after a shower and stepping directly onto the glass floor of the hallway. Our bedrooms were clean and adequate but unfortunately the cleanliness in the rest of the house was disappointing.
We would highly recommend staying at Jan and Jill's home. They are very considerate and interesting hosts and the accomodation was good - comfortable beds, good size, clean rooms, in a well designed space. The location is great for nearby meals and convenient shopping and public transport, and Jan and Jill provided useful tips about local walks, transport and activities in Sydney. We found it a great base - easy to grab a taxi, bus or train and a good walk to the city, via the art gallery or through the botanic gardens. Lovely hound and excellent coffee!
