Right in the thick of things. Our listing has evolved as our family grows. We have 3 bedrooms and while it is still super sleek we now have bunk beds and a cot in one room, a master bedroom and a spare room with twin/king options. Its small but neat.

Right in the thick of things. Our listing has evolved as our family grows. We have 3 bedrooms and while it is still super sleek we now have bunk beds and a cot in one room, a master bedroom and a spare room with twin/king options. Its small but neat.

The Space

Great location. Entirely modern. Fully lived-in home. You will have all the conveniences the hotels lack without compromise on location. 10% of profits will be donated to charity. Airbnb helps us meet our social obligations and helps us with our own holiday fund.

Walking distance to all major Sydney destinations - 3 min to Chinatown, 5 min to Darling hbr, 10 to Central Station, 10 to the CBD, 15 to Star Casino, 20 to Pitt street Westfield and 30 to the Opera house.

Our house is newly renovated, kid friendly (cot available), small but cosy and unbeatable location. We have beds for 6 but it would be a tight fit with only 1 full bathroom plus a toilet downstairs. I’d say better suited to 5 but it will/and has fit 6 no problems. This is our home so it will have everything you need, including fast WiFi and a complete kitchen. We have a 20 month old, so we have everything you need for an infant, so you can travel light - contact us if you need more info on prams etc.

While we hope people use our kitchen, it's Sydney, so there are tons of awesome food options - some nearby favourites are the Kazbah in Darling Harbour, Chat Thai in Thai town, Mamak's on Goulburn st, Made in Italy in Pyrmont, Lush Bucket and Quarry St cafe for awesome coffee, and Zumbo at the Star for desserts - all these and many more are just around the corner.

Anyway, if you book with us we'll leave you a list of good places to see, eat and do!

We love hiking - and Central station and trains to a number of great destinations are nearby. If you're from Australia and a member of Goget - there are two cars directly outside our house. Parking is on-street but free with a council pass we can leave for you.

**because we will donate 10% proceeds to charity we do not ordinarily offer discounts.

Guest Access

We have everything relatively normal people use in the course of a day (as we do actually live here). You have access to all of it during your stay. No need to bring sheets/towels, hairdryer etc its all provided.

We have wifi and a guest parking pass for you to use.

Interaction with Guests

I usually answer emails within a few hours (depending on whether we are still in the country or have gone OS). Im happy to offer any advice or answer any questions. There is always someone to call in a pinch as my sister and mum both live within a few blocks. I usually don't meet the guests unless they would like to. I'm happy to grab a coffee with you if I'm around but just as happy for you to pretend I don't exist,

The Neighborhood

Our neighborhood is close to so many things. It is an affordable cab ride to anywhere but you hardly need a cab when public transport is right on your door step. Its a surprisingly family friendly place with access to awesome facilities in Darling Harbour, Ian Thorpe Aquatic Center, The Powerhouse Museum and a park every few blocks.

Getting around

We don't drive ourselves but we have a visitors parking pass for guests who do. We get by on a combination of public transport, bicycles and goget car share. Its very well connected with its proximity to George street and Central station.

  • I stayed in Felicity's and Khalid's place with three friends after we travelled around Australia for 3 weeks, and it was great! The house is very nice and spacious and has everything you could wish for, including a well equipped kitchen - we especially liked the coffee machine ;) With its three bedrooms and an extra toilet it is perfect for four people. We liked the code lock because that means you don't need several keys for everyone to be able to enter the house individually. The location is great - CBD, The Rocks, Glebe and also Newtown are all within walking distance. Oxford Street is only 15 minutes away as well, which is nice since it was Mardi Gras weekend and we could just walk to the parade. Felicity was very helpful with everything and generously extended our check out time since our flight was later in the afternoon. The only thing that was not so nice was the rather big construction site opposite the house which was noisy from 8 am - the earplugs we found in the bathroom helped ;) I would return to Felicity's and Khalid's place any time again.

  • Beautiful space! Bright, open, clean... felt just like home away from home. The location was great - easy walking distance to the shops in Ultimo, attractions at Darling Harbour, the Glebe, and the CBD. Felicity was very helpful and responsive before and during our stay. She even reached out to us during a particularly rainy day to suggest fun indoor activities for our daughter. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!

  • We had a great stay at Khalid, Felicity and Savi's home over Australia Day long weekend. Our hosts were exceptionally accommodating and helpful. The house was very clean, comfortable and nicely set up for a family. It was much appreciated to have the use of the pram as we walked everywhere due to the fantastic location. Food choices and things to see nearby in every direction. It was fun to have a taste of inner city living in a beautifully renovated home. Thanks Khalid, Felicity and Savi, we had a great time.

  • We had a fantastic stay at Khalid and Felicity's place. literally a 5 min walk from Darling Harbour. Our flight wasn't to 8pm in the evening and they let us have the place until we needed to leave. The house has everything you need. We can't recommend this place enough. Thanks for a great weekend.

  • Felicity and Khalid were delightful hosts! The house was beautiful, clean and so close to everything! The set up of the house was so accommodating for my husband and three children, it truly felt like a home away from home! The helpful hints about the house and local area that Felicity provided were invaluable and truly made us feel welcome. I can not recommend this house or it's hosts highly enough... I have been telling anyone who will listen since our return home! Another positive is that they donated 20% of our fee to a charity - such a touching idea! Thank you again Felicity and Khalid, because of you, I will definetly use airbnb again (and again and again!!)

  • I could not have asked for a better home to stay in while visiting Sydney with my family. Our hosts, Khalid & Felicity were so accommodating and communicative that we never felt unsure of anything! We were sent a handy information sheet that told us what we needed to know. The house was lovely and easily accommodated our five adults. It was clean, very comfortable and well located. You will not be disappointed.

  • We had an amazing time staying in Khalid and Felicity's house in Ultimo. The house is ultra modern and clean. The location is perfect for seeing all the sites of Sydney, we walked pretty much every where. The booking was easy to make and communications were fast and easy. Highly recommend to anyone. Thank you!!

  • We had a fantastic stay in Felicity and Khalid's place. Communication and assistance during booking was excellent. We received great information about the area prior to arrival and, upon arrival, found the house to be in an excellent position, beautifully presented and stocked with bread, milk and eggs!

    Felicity and Khalid are great hosts and the house is in an excellent location for exploring Sydney. I would not hesitate to recommend them as hosts :-)

About
love books, beach volleyball, squash, the great outdoors, books We love our house and the Sydney surroundings and it's great that we can share it with other people(and help pay for the renovation! ;-) Now we are a family of three, airbnb suits our travel style - we need the comfort and flexibility of a house. We booked two holidays through airbnb this year and it was so much nicer to explore new places from a house rather than a hotel.
