Hello. I'm a graphic designer living in Sydney. Grew up in Melbourne. Lived in Hong Kong, London and San Francisco for a few years, before settling back in Sydney. Love my flat and Surry Hills, and genuinely love people enjoying my place :-)

Mike met us at the apartment and gave us a great rundown on his place and the area.
The apartment was exactly as the pictures and previous reviews. Spotlessly clean with everything you would need to feel at home.
Another great stay in Sydney. Great location and really appreciated the food in the fridge as we arrived late evening.
Mike war der perfekte Gastgeber: wir reisten früher an (und konnten seine Wohnung schon vormittags beziehen) und hatten einen späten Rückflug (kein Problem, unser Gepäck abends abzuholen!).
Alles sah aus, wie beschrieben: sehr ansprechend! Im Kühlschrank fanden wir schon 'unser Frühstück' vor, sehr nett!
Die Kommunikation mit Mike war von Anfang an immer sehr schnell, freundlich und verbindlich!
Super location. Friendly host and everything you need for a stay in Sydney. We'll be back!!
We had an excellent 2 night stay in Michael's Surrey Hills apartment and would happily have stayed for longer.
The apartment is clean, and tastefully decorated with plants and artwork. There are excellent utilities throughout - kitchen, laundry entertainment and use of a desk top computer if required. The bed is super comfy! And there is a fantastic view from the balcony overlooking Sydney CBD. Great for sunrises and sunsets.
The location was perfect for us. Surrey Hills is cute and colourful. A nice area to wander around. We had no car and it was an easy 30 minute walk to Circular Quay where we took the Manly Ferry (alternatively 2 stops from Central Station, a two minute walk away.). The central shops are a 15-20 minute walk away and there are all manner of restaurants/cafes within a 5-10 minute radius. The excellent Reuben Hills cafe is just a minute away, one of Michael's perfect local tips for breakfast.
And Michael is the best host! Friendly and amenable, he was waited for us to arrive and hand over the keys, taking the time to show us around the apartment, show us how to use utilities and give us some great local tips on what to do and where to eat. And he kindly reunited Ruth with her sunglasses (foolishly left behind) by forwarding them to our next destination. All in all, a top host.
Definitely stay here if you're looking for a well located Sydney base from which to explore the city, but away from the noise and bustle.
The flat is in a great location and is a good size for two people. The balcony is a nice size and nice to relax on. The flat was very clean and Michael was a great host and made the entire process very easy! Highly recommend this flat and the area.
Michael's flat in Surry Hills couldn't have been more perfect. Michael was very accommodating and generous and I would stay there again anytime. The flat is in a great neighborhood and very central to get around.
Michael was flexible about when we could meet him, and was very helpful in showing us the apartment and facilities. It was perfect in every way and is a great location near the railway station so you can get a train or bus to Circular Key. The view from the apartment is great with a great skyline. Thanks Michael for proving us with an excellent place to check out Sydney.
Very happy with this place. Great location and really felt like a home to come back to. Few essentials in the fridge and other places in the apartment made life heaps easier. Highly recommend.
Mike is always courteous, communicates promptly, goes out of his way to make you welcome and to make your stay relaxing and hassle free. A magnificent apartment, with a view, balcony and all mod cons. As a 3rd time visitor, I find this pocket of Sydney ever evolving, with great eats/cafés/pubs.
We thoroughly enjoyed having Michael stay with us!!
Thanks Michael. It was a pleasure to have you stay. You were the perfect guest: easy to communicate with and you left my place sparkling. You're welcome any time.
Michael booked our cabin for his parents.Unfortunately I didn't get to meet with them personally but they were lovely on the phone and left the cabin immaculately.
Mike, and Carson were the perfect guests. We enjoyed interacting with them and shared their excitment for the total solar eclipse. Our dog Kaysha really enjoyed their company too!
