Double room in modern terrace home

House - Private room · Nickson Street, Sydney, NSW 2010, Australia

Amazing heritage terrace house in fashionable Surry Hills, within walking distance to everything Sydney.

This private room is away from the street with plenty of privacy - we have lots of great reviews for this awesome place.

The Space

This listing is for a furnished, private double room in a large terrace in the centre of Sydney - Surry Hills.

**The Room**
The room for rent is located on the middle level of the 3 level terrace and has a double bed. The bedroom has reverse cycle air conditioning.

While it's not a big room, there's plenty of storage space - with large drawers, hanging space and a shoe rack. (see photos)

There's a hair dryer in the top drawer, along with the standard towels/sheets.

**The House**
The house is a large, 5 bedroom terrace. It was recently renovated and features wooden floor boards on the lower levels, modern kitchen and a bright, flowing feel.

We have a large living room (with big TV, Apple TV and couch), a dining room, a large kitchen with gas cooking, large fridge, breakfast table in the sun, a large courtyard with BBQ and outdoor seating, washing/drying machine, 3 bathrooms (2 showers) and 5 bedrooms total.

We're on a quiet street right near the main Surry Hills area - so you've got the best of both worlds.

Hopefully the photos speak for themselves - but we're happy to explain more if you have any questions!

**The Housemates**
You'll be staying with three housemates (myself, my sister Elise and a housemate from Birmingham called Jamie). We are in our late 20s / early 30s and are creative, relaxed and fun. We work Monday to Friday for fashion, recruitment and an internet company.

We're not a party house - but occasionally have a few friends and/or partner over. Having said that - the house is big and there's plenty of space to chill out.

It'd be great to have you stay, so please get in touch if you have any questions at all!

Guest Access

You'll have complete privacy in your room with storage, air conditioning and plenty of storage.

You'll share a bathroom with a maximum of two people. There are 2.5 bathrooms in the house with 3 people (plus you) staying there. So it's never a problem.

The downstairs area of the house is communal - and includes a living room (with TV & couch), dining room, kitchen, downstairs bathroom, breakfast sun area and outdoor courtyard with BBQ and outdoor table/chairs.

The only areas out of bounds are the other bedrooms.

We have 2.5 bathrooms shared by 3 people. So at most you'll have 2 other p

Interaction with Guests

We all work 8-6pm Monday to Friday. So we'll be around at other times. Having said that we are all pretty busy and are often out and about.

We're always happy to give recommendations for places to eat/drink/explore. We're a very friendly house (have a read of the reviews) and our guests have always been happy.

The Neighborhood

Surry Hills is one of the most popular suburbs in Sydney for cafes, food, culture and general 'vibe'. TimeOut's suburb guide describe it as "Sydney’s buzziest and most happening ’burb". It's also one of the most sought after.

It was the only Australian suburb listed in the world's "50 most stylish neighborhoods" (coming in at number 23) by American lifestyle magazine Complex.

On top of all the awesomeness of Surry Hills - you're in a really central part of Sydney, with a 10 minute walk to Central Station (which connects to everything), buses everywhere (bondi, circular quay, city), a short walk to Centennial park, chinatown, the city etc. There's a large supermarket (Coles) about 100 metres away.

If you haven't heard of Surry Hills, just do a web search for "Surry Hills pubs, restaurants, culture etc" You'll quickly see how awesome this place is :)

One website summed it up as this:
"Amid Crown Street's funky fashion shops and salons, the buzzing garment district and the artsy, gay-friendly vibe, Surry Hills is a hotbed of restaurant activity. Here Sydneysiders can come for some of the city's best baristas and coffee houses, many of them tucked away between converted warehouses that stretch down to Central Station.

Surry Hills boasts a swag of celebrity chefs from Kylie Kwong to Bill Granger and Mark Best, while heading south to Cleveland Street unveils the suburb's small stretch of Little India. There's a lot of ground to cover, but there are few foodie areas in Sydney that deliver more quality dining options, from casual to upscale."

Our house is parallel to Crown St and connects to Cleveland St (the streets mentioned above) so you really are in the centre of everything.

Getting around

We are in a near-perfect spot for public transport. The main train station for Sydney, Central Station, is a 12 minute walk away.
We have buses within 100m which go to the city, the harbour bridge, Bondi, Newtown etc. Buses to the city take 15 minutes - or you can walk it in 30 minutes.

You can walk for 1km and be in a huge park - which hires bikes to ride and explore the ponds and native birds.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I never used Airbnb before, so I didn't know what to expect. Anthony is a super friendly host! The room was clean, so were the other rooms (kitchen, bathrooms, etc.) The house is located next to Crown Street, which is great for shopping and known for fantastic bars/restaurants.
    Overall a very good experience, I can highly recommend this place! Thanks a lot

  • I really had a great time staying at Anthony’s place. He and his housemates Elise and Jamie were very welcoming and always helpful giving advices. The house is perfectly located in Surry Hills (but even quiet), beautiful, clean and has a nice backyard. I coulnd’t image a better place to stay in Sydney. Highly recommended!

    December 2013
  • Fabulous location, great place and wonderful people!!! I have just relocated to Sydney and stayed with Anthony and housemates for almost 2 weeks while house hunting and settling into Sydney.

    November 2013
  • I had a wonderful time at Anthony's place. The location can't be beat - on a quiet road right off the main drag in Surry Hills. I walked everywhere, including to Central Station and the Harbour. The house is quite nice and equipped with everything I needed. Everyone was super nice too - I wish I'd had more time to chat with them.

    November 2013
  • I had the loveliest 2 week stay in Surry Hills with Anthony, Jaimee and Elise. Highly recommended!

    October 2013
  • What a great guy & easy stay! Anthony was super friendly and helpful during my last minute stay last week. Very laid back and easy to get along with which helped me feel very comfortable. He even let me play GTA V the day it came out on his Xbox! The room was great, very comfortable bed and felt quiet and private. Definitely recommend the place - so close to all the action in Sydney too. :) Thanks Ant!

    September 2013
  • Anthony was an amazing host. So friendly and flexible with my schedule. I also enjoyed the room. The bed was very comfortable after a 14 hour flight from San Francisco. Next time I am in Sydney, I will definitely come back. I highly recommend you to stay with Anthony and his housemates if you are in Australia.

    August 2013
  • Anthony and his housemates are so lovely! They made sure my stay was comfortable and was always available for any questions I had. I highly recommend that you come and stay with him if you are in Sydney!

    August 2013
  • I had a fabulous 1-week stay: it was incredibly comfy, a great room/ top floor of the house to myself where I had a private bathroom, brilliant location. The hosts were welcoming and helpful. Anthony was overseas but very fast in returning any messages. Everything about this accommodation experience was fantastic and A-List quality. Highly recommended!

    May 2013
  • I very much enjoyed my stay with Elise and Jamie. The house is spacious, clean, cosy and comfortable. I felt like I was in my own home, everything was well catered for and just easy.

Heya, My name is Anthony, I am a Sydneysider who's been living in Surry Hills for the past 2 years. I bought this terrace with my sister, Elise, and have a great housemate called Jamie. I started using AirBnb when I quit my job and went off travelling for 4 months - and since getting back we've decided to start renting out the spare room. I like to play soccer, do some acting and work for an awesome internet company. I also do some occasional TV presenting work around technology and general geeky stuff. Always happy to help with suggestions for food, drink or recreational activities in Sydney :) Anyway, I'm looking forward to meeting you!
