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!)
Wonderful hosts and accommodation. Good information and we really felt welcome. Easy access to public transports. No complains. Lovely cat. ☺
Dec and Tori are fantastic host for my first airbnb experience, they provide lovely reference notes which makes you get around with everything easily. Me and mum enjoyed our stay very much, the room is just perfect for two and the whole experience is definitely a add on to such a lovely city! Should stay a little bit longer.
I had the most amazing experience and time spent in Sydney and especially at Dec & Tori's place! I love their neighbourhood and the house is so beautiful! The house is really modern & chic, extremely neat and well equipped. The location was perfect, it was situated in a quiet lane but close enough to the main road. Just 15-20 mins walk will get you to the Central station and to all the other cool suburbs like Newtown, Glebe, Surry Hills, etc. Dec & Tori were fantastic hosts who were really helpful. They struck a good balance at being amicable and knowing how to respect their guests privacy.
And how could I forget their super cute cat, Monty!!! I miss him so much!!! Thanks for such a wonderful experience! :)
I would definitely recommend this place to everyone!
Tori & Dec were so charming! The place was exactly as described and had all the necessary and convenient amenities (wifi, toiletries, shared kitchen, laundry). The location was very central to everything for us. Interacted with both Tori and Dec who made us feel very comfortable and at home. Their cat Monty was a bonus feature! Friendliest cat ever.
Very nice room in beautiful home near the city centre. Dec and Tori were very friendly and gave excellent suggestions for sights, bars and restaurants in Sydney
Our 5 night stay with Dec and Tori couldn't have been better. We arrived to find our names on our room upstairs and a "welcome to our home sign" which was a great way to feel welcome and at home right away. Dec and Tori's place is very well located and close and has everything you need within a few minutes walk..(food shopping, pharmacy, eating out and coffee shop options) We walked to Central station everyday which was a short 12-15min away and within 3 stops you're in circular quay area right amongst the harbour and down town area. Their place is very clean, modern and spacious. We found there was a great balance of feeling welcomed and the ability to have a chat and also feeling like you have your privacy and space when ever you need it. Also the bed and room we were in was very comfortable which was a bonus for getting a solid sleep each night. We would highly recommend this place for anyone coming to Sydney for a visit and we would be looking to stay here again if ever back in Sydney. Thanks again Dec and Tori!
My partner and I did enjoy the days stayed in Dec and Tori's cozy house, which located at a convenient place to get the public transport with Coles near by. Dec and Tori are very kind and hospitable, offering free breakfast and free laundry, and they respect the lodger's privacy. By the way, if you love cat, they have a lovely and elegant burmese cat, Monty. I must choose their bnb when visiting Sydney next time.

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!
