About this listing
Ideally located just 8 minutes’ walk from Sydney's Central train and bus station, our recently renovated Victorian terrace is just one stop away from Town Hall (the centre of the city) and three stops from Circular Quay ferry terminal (the Opera House). We're nestled on a quiet tree-lined street in funky Chippendale which borders Surry Hills, Glebe, Newtown and Redfern, home to some of the best shops and restaurants in Sydney. Our house is walking distance to Chinatown and Darling Harbour and there’s a bus stop only one street away. We’re also a very short walk from the University of Sydney, UTS, and University of Notre Dame.
Our three bedroom house is over two levels with a shared bathroom, shared living space and two toilets. We can accommodate a maximum of 2 guests per bedroom (we can accommodate 4 guests in total as we have 2 private bedrooms to rent, please see our other listing to book the other room).
Each room has a:
•Queen sized bed
•Reverse cycle air conditioning
•Built in wardrobes
We have a large open plan lounge (with Platinum Foxtel Cable TV and DVD player), an 8 seat dining table, a large well equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, dishwasher and private courtyard with BBQ.
We are happy for guests to use the kitchen to cook their own meals. Breakfast (muesli, fruit, yoghurt, bread & eggs) tea and coffee are all provided.
Feel free to use our computer or wireless internet access and wash your clothes in our washing machine and dryer. Bedding and towels are provided and are changed weekly (and of course at the start of each visit!). The house is non-smoking but we are happy for guests to smoke in the courtyard. The bathroom has a hair dryer and GHD hair straightener (so you can pack light). We’ve got lots of maps and guide books and are happy to give you advice on places to head out if you wish, just ask us!
Directions from the airport: We suggest a cab as the easiest and quickest way to get to Chippendale if you have a lot of luggage ($30-$35 depending on the time of day). The airport train link is $16.40 one-way per person and takes approximately 10 minutes to Central Station. Our house is an 8 minute walk from Central station.
Please note that as we live in an inner city area, parking is extremely limited. There are one-hour parking spots in our street only.
About us: We are an easy-going, friendly professional couple who work weekdays and are home most evenings and weekends. We have a burmese cat who is very friendly and loves laps.
We look forward to welcoming you in to our home!

Dec is very kind during staying so I feel comfortable. House is near china town and fish market. So we could easily visited there. We had good memory in this house. Dec is much handsome and slip compared to profile picture~kkk
The house was so easy to find. Close to Central station(7mins walking), 1 minute from bus stop. The house is lovely. Right out of the TV renos show. The room , kitchen and bathroom were absolutely gorgeous. The bed extremely comfortable. The written instructions were very acurate and concise. Great location for restaurants and transport. I didn't get to meet Dec, but Tori was very welcoming, friendly and helpful . The cat Monty was also very friendly. A definite MUST stay again for me. Highly recommended.
Absolutely loved the place - great location and the bed was very comfortable. I had a great time in Sydney! Would definitely stay here again :)
Great and fantástic experience! Tori&Dec were very nice with us. The home is very confortable and clean. The place is perfect, near to the city center and if you want you can pick up many buses. The Central station is to 8minutes by walk and is near to the AirPort. For us was a diferent experience and was our first time with Airbnb
We really enjoyed our stay in Sydney with Dec and Tori! The location of their home is very convenient and made taking public transport that much easier!
Thank you for letting us stay. We had a lovely time. Dec and Tori made us feel completely at home, their house was immaculate and in a perfect location to travel around in Sydney. Would definitely stay again :)
The house is absolutely beautiful and cozy. Didn't see Tori, but Dec is really friendly and helpful in showing us the routes going to the city and even helped calling a taxi for us going to the airport. They have also prepared a really helpful info sheet for travelers to know about the house and transportation, eat and stuff like that. The cat is so cool too ;)
The location of the house is so good, only a few minutes walk to take bus or transportation to get to the city. There's a big shopping mall nearby, you can find a few restaurants there too.
It was a pleasant stay and will definitely come again next time! I recommend other travelers to come to Tori and Dec's warm house! :)

About the Host, Dec And Tori
We are a professional couple who work weekdays and are home most evenings and weekends. We both enjoy great food and wine and Dec loves to cook. He also can't live without good coffee.
Dec is a passionate sports fan (football/soccer) and Tori enjoys yoga and reading.
We enjoy traveling and meeting new people. Our holidays usually involve a lot of relaxing as we work in fast paced demanding jobs. Our favourite travel destinations, in no particular order, are NYC, London, Bali, and recently Tasmania.
We're friendly hosts who will happily give you plenty of space if you need it. That said, you're welcome to join us for a wine when we get home from work.
We look forward to welcoming you in to our home!
