We love to travel and visit new places. With family scattered all over the world, my husband and I try to travel as often as possible. We love visiting places for the architecture, design scene, music and beaches.

Deena and Rory were very kind and helpful to us. They quickly responded to my many queries!Their house is conveniently located close to everything one would ever need! Just a short walking distance to city and train (email hidden)e house is equipped with safety gates on stairs which was a life saver with a 2 year old as we didn't have to take any with us.
What a fabulous stay and fabulous accommodation. Deena + Rory were so great with questions we had about our stay and making sure we were comfortable. With a four year old and young baby the apartment was perfect for us rather than being couped up in a hotel. We were central to the city and venue for our stay and loved staying in such a fabulous place. The garden made us feel at home and the toys made our son feel happy too. Perfect in every way.
Our stay at Deena and Rory's terrace house was fantastic. We were met by Damien to collect keys and his suggestions for local nightlife in Surry Hills and how to get the bus to Bondi were spot on. The house is beautifully furnished and the air bed in the 2nd room was pretty comfortable. With a weekend of temperatures over 30 degrees, the bedrooms were quite hot - without fly screens and with hungry mozzies, we weren't game to leave the windows open, but the ceiling fans helped. The local area is a perfect spot to hang out in Sydney with the CBD a short walk or Uber ride away, and plenty of options for food and drinks within a few blocks. Proximity to Central was also handy after getting the train from the airport (about 30 minutes train + walk). The eggs, milk and bread also saved us heading out when we wanted a quick breakfast. Thanks Deena and Rory for sharing your lovely home!
I organised this stay for my sister and her family, so this is the report from her: The hosts were a lovely couple, who were only to happy to assist us in anything we needed. The home was beautiful, functional and clean, with excellent facilities. They made the stay feel warm and luxurious, and it is a place to be proud of.
Thanks for such lovely feedback. Your sister and her family were lovely and very easy to deal with. Thanks.

Deena and her husband were very helpful, they had left full of good advice for our stay in Sydney, full of little touches for our baby.
Very nice house, with a great location.
In conclusion, i do not think a better place to return to Sydney.
The house is wonderful, with a great location, walking distance into CBD. The garden is a great feature. Deena was a really good host, she left us everything we needed, was on the end of a phone, but left us in complete privacy. Surry Hills is an arty lively area and the house is less than 10 minutes walk from Central Station. Highly recommend.
Deena communicated very well with me prior to her stay which made trying to accommodate her needs so much more straightforward. I didn't personally get to meet her but she left the house in perfect order. I hope she and her friends and family enjoyed their time at Mackerel and hope they will visit again in the future. I would definitely recommend Deena to future hosts.
Deena and her family were great guests! They'd be welcome back anytime!
Deena and Rory are tops - as you can see from the pics their place is fantastic with good vibes and the location is so central you would be crazy to stay anywhere else.
Deena is extremely friendly and reliable and her house is in impeccable condition. I would certainly recommend her as a host.
