Cool inner city pad, close to Uni's

House - Private room · Rose Street, Chippendale, NSW 2008, Australia

The Space

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. 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. 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 up to 4 guests in 2 private bedrooms (please see our other listing to book the other room). 

Each room has a:
Queen sized bed
Reverse cycle air conditioning
Built in wardrobes
Fly screen

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 large oven, 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 ($25-$35 depending on the time of day). The airport train link is $16-$17 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 both enjoy great food and wine and we welcome guests to share meals with us for an additional fee (please contact us for more details). 
We have a burmese cat who is very friendly and loves laps. 
We look forward to welcoming you in to our home!

  • I had a great stay with my sister in Dec&Tori's house. Although we didn't got chance to talk a lot face to face, Dec&Tori are very helpful and the house is very clean, tidy and comfort. Location is good, convenient with walking distance to the Uni and Fish market. Dec&Tori are so thoughtful that reminded me I forgot a silk white top...
    The cat is cute by the way and very sweet:)
    I will consider Dec & Tori's as the place to stay for my next visit to Sydney.

  • Staying at Dec and Tori's beautiful home for 3 nights while we were visiting Sydney was nothing short of Fantastic. Spotlessly clean room and a luxurious bathroom made our stay extremely comfortable. Great hosts and would recommend.

  • Wonderful hosts with a lovely room available. So close to Central station- just a short walk while breathing Sydneys fresh air ;) Cute cat and a nice backyard. If you ever go to Sydney, I recommend to stay with Dec and Tori.

    March 2014
  • This is a nice place to stay in Sydney and a handy location for venturing into the city. Dec was very good host, going out of his way to help us with useful recommendations for everything including transport, activities and food! :)

    March 2014
  • Would like to say a big thank you to Dec and Tori for welcoming us to their wonderful house! It was definitely clean and a very convenient location as we could walk to central station. We wish we got to spend more time with our hosts but our timetables seemed to always clash. However we got to cuddle a cute furry fella everyday, Monty the cat :-)

  • Dec and Tori are amazing hosts, they are kind and friendly and always ready to help. Their house is nice and cosy, we felt ourselves at home. Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to communicate with them - that is the only thing we regret for. Anyway, next time we visit Sydney we will definitely try to stay at their house.

    February 2014
  • Ich habe mich bei Tori und Dec sehr wohl gefühlt. Beide waren sehr freundlich, aufgeschlossen und hilfsbereit. Man konnte bei ihnen ohne Aufpreis frühstücken, Wäsche waschen und im Internet surfen. Ihr helles, sauberes, gemütliches Häuschen liegt in einem ruhigen Viertel, in dem es nette, kleine Cafés gibt. Durch die Nähe zum "Central station" kann man problemlos alle Sehenswürdigkeiten in und um Sydney sowie innerhalb von zehn Minuten (ab Bahnhof) den internationalen Flughafen erreichen. Aber auch zu Fuß lässt sich die Stadt von Chippendale aus gut durchstreifen.
    Ich kann Tori und Dec als Gastgeber sowie ihr schickes Häuschen bedenkenlos weiterempfehlen!

    February 2014
  • Our stay at Dec and Tori was wonderful. Dec and Tori were very nice and welcoming Hosts. The house is situated in a perfect Location - only a few minutes to walk to the centre. The house itself was very lovely and 100% clean.
    It was very nice of Dec and Tori that they also offered a lot of Information about our check in, our stay as well as of the surrounding environment.
    We definitely would stay there again.

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!
