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!
When enquiring about availability please ensure you have a profile photo (showing your face) and some information about yourself and the purpose of your stay to avoid your booking request being rejected (as Airbnb is based on trust we'd like to know a little bit about you if we're going to be sharing a house together!)
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! :)
The room was clean and bright, and I felt very welcome. I loved the location --- a long morning walk into town, with bus or train easily available at the end of the day. I would recommend it as a great option in Sydney!
Ich habe mich bei Tori und Dec sehr wohl gefühlt.
Sie waren sehr hilfsbereit und sympathisch, aber zu keinem Zeitpunkt aufdringlich oder distanzlos, einfach perfekt!
Die beiden sind tolle Gastgeber und haben ein schönes und sehr ansprechendes Zuhause.
Ich würde jederzeit dort wieder wohnen wollen.
Dec and Tori were very friendly and responded to any questions quickly. Loved the eclectic area. Great bistros nearby.
Had a great time in Sydney, with a chilled easy stay with Tori and Dec. They were very warm and welcoming. Room was lovely, clean, tidy and very comfortable. Amazing bathroom. All information that you could possibly need was printed and waiting in room ready. Super location and minutes walk from bus stops to get you to station. Would definitely recommend this stay

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!
