Im a 30 year old broadcast producer living in LA. I speak spanish and was originally born in colombia and lived 12 years in Australia.
excellent central location for cbd sydney, house was comfortable, secure and had a welcoming atmosphere.
Diana was kind enough to leave maps and information to assist with general directions and ease of transport.
Diana's place was a charming Victorian row house in a quiet, historic part of Sydney. Birds singing in the many trees around the neighborhood woke me up every morning. It was close to everything. A Thai restaurant and a pizza place are a block away. A 10 minute walk brings you to Broadway, a main street with a mall, lots of dining options and buses which take you all over Sydney. Sydney Harbor was a 15 minute ride away. There is also a train station nearby but I never used it. I never met Diana as the whole house was away for the holidays.I was greeted at the airport by Diana's mother and her friend who took me to the house which after a 9 hour flight was very thoughtful. They handed me a travel pass which was good for 3 days and allowed me to explore Sydney. The house had a fully equipped kitchen which I mainly used for breakfast and a washing machine.The TV had 5 basic channels and there was a DVD player and several films. The neighborhood was safe and green. Not only because of the trees but it also supported the Green Party. It was a small house but I was alone so it was fine for me. I don't know how many people live there so it might be tight for 2 plus people. The bedroom and bed was quite comfortable with just enough room for one suitcase. It was an excellent place to stay and I highly recommend it.
I stayed at Diana's flat in Darlington for 1 week while attending orientation week at UTS. Diana was very helpful as I was a newcomer to Sydney and she directed me as to where I can go to buy transporation card, the best sightseeing areas to go to, and about Sydney life in general.
The room that I stayed in was wonderful. It came with ample wardrobe space and overlooked the street below via the terrace. The flat itself is a 2 bedroom flat with modern furnishings, which had been newly renovated. Darlington is a great area -- close to shops, UTS, the city of Sydney, etc.
