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!)
Dec & Tori were wonderful, accommodating hosts with a really nice house. Was a pleasure staying here for the few days we were. This place is in a great location, really easy to get into the city and really close to good restaurants and cafes. Loved it!
The cool inner city pad was perfect. So convenient to everything.
Was quiet and privacy observed at all times.
Dec and Tori great " hands off " hosts but there when you need them for anything.
Monty always there for company.
Will be back when ever in Sydney
Everything was perfect: the area, the apartment, Dec & Tori's welcome. I heartily recommend them.
Dec and Tori were very welcoming and friendly. Their home is lovely and comfortable.
We were impressed with all the amenities offered - including iPhone chargers as ours weren't compatible.
I would recommend them to anyone and would definitely stay there again when I return to Sydney.
Dec & Tori have an extremely beautiful House :D......We stayed at the house for 3 days and by the second day both me and my husband felt as if its our home only :P.....Could not meet Tori, but we conversed with Dec almost everyday. The house is extremely clean and exactly how it looks in the pictures. There were other females in the other room who were staying at the house and we could speak to them also everyday and share our travel experiences and tips which were very helpful for the rest our trip. The house is conveniently located and just a short walk from the train station. They have a lovely cat named Monty :)
We just loved the house and had an awesome stay :)
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.

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!
