Entire modern house to yourself, 5 minutes walk from Central Station on a quiet street in Sydney's best location--Surry Hills (edge of the city, next to 3 parks & cafes)
Hassle-free check-in with a door code, unlike other airbnbs where you have the hassle of setting a strict meeting time to get the keys.
Location, location, location. This is the absolute best location in all of Sydney, on a quiet street in the heart of Surry Hills, Sydney's trendiest and most conveniently located suburb.
-Central & Museum Stations: 5 minutes walk
-Oxford Street/Hyde Park: 3 blocks away
-2 supermarkets: 3 blocks away
-Many cafes/restaurants/bars nearby
-China Town: 10 mins walk
-Buses to beaches: 3 blocks away
-Darling Harbour: 15 minute walk

There are several bed options depending on whether you have couples that want to share beds or if you want to spread out downstairs.
With extremely high sky-lit ceilings and two levels, the house has heritage charm with a modern feel. Like all properties this close to the city, space comes at a premium and the rooms are small and efficient.
There's a modern but small full bathroom upstairs with a half bathroom downstairs behind the kitchen attached to the private courtyard with a washer/dryer. The bathroom has a shower but no bathtub for kids.
The dining table can seat 8 people (default will be 6 chairs, but I can extend the table and add two stools upon request).

- 3 parks withing 30 meters of the house
- 5 minute walk from both Central and Museum stations
- 2 blocks from Oxford Street (buses)

You have the entire house to yourselves to come and go as you please. I live across the street so I may come by to see if you need anything.
Другие важные подробности
Free 1-hour parking is available on street outside the house from 8am-10pm (free with no limit from 10pm-8am). There are also some spots with much longer (or no restrictions on the other side of the neighborhood but it's up to you to look for a spot).
FREE UNLIMITED STREET PARKING
Available approximately 2.5km away. This is a good option if you're driving to Sydney and then leaving your car until you leave.
If you're there in the afternoon, there are two loading-zone spaces about 25 meters down the street, (across from 20 Smith st) which are free after 4pm--so you can park there all afternoon and evening for free.
There's metered parking for up to 4 hours, one block from the house. I don't know the hourly rate but I think it's probably about $7/hr
GARAGE NEAR HOUSE
There's s public parking garage about 4 blocks from the house. It's cheaper on weekends then on weekdays.
- No parties
(Most of these rules are not relevant for families. The main theme is not to be noisy which bothers the neighbours)
- No visitors other than the number booked (to prevent parties)
- No music after 9pm
- No drinking at the house past 8:55pm (to prevent partying/noise)
- No hanging out in the courtyard past 9pm (sound carries to the neighbours)
- No hanging out on the street or porch in front of the house (it reminds the neighbours that they live next to an airbnb house with lots of guests coming & going)
- No talking on the phone on the porch/street in front of the house
- No waiting for a taxi/uber in front of the house (walk up the street)
- No smoking in the house, on the porch/street in front of the house, or in back courtyard. (There are 3 parks less than 40 meters away)
- Only whisper after midnight & no more than 4 people in a room after midinight (what seems like a normal volume becomes loud when several people try to talk over each other. Alcohal also makes people unaware of volume)
- No slamming doors
- No running up and down the stairs (the stairs are on a shared wall with another house and the sound travels through)
This is an awesome spot for a weekend away with several friends to enjoy the Surry Hills night life--and I want you to have a great time--just don't be stupid or obnoxious. Like 95% of airbnb’ers you are likely very responsible and unlikely to cause any trouble, but please pass this note on to the rest of your group about the house rules and do’s/don’ts in order not to lose your security deposit. Recent incident and example of what not to do: The main airbnb contact was a very responsible person (most responsible in the group, as is generally the case)—however, it’s your responsibility to explain the rules to the rest of your group. You will lose 100% of your security deposit if: -The neighbours call the police to complain -The police call me to complain -Neighbours call me to complain -You break any of the house rules on the airbnb listing. My airbnb house isn’t a secret from the neighbours but they don’t want to be bothered, which could cause me to have to have to quit airbnb.
If you're visiting Sydney for a party weekend, it's ok to have pre-drinks at the house until 8:30pm but then you need to go out to the bars, othewise it will be considered a party to the neighbours. Surry Hills is the trendiest neighbourhood in Sydney with the best bars so there's no reason you should want to drink in the house past 8:30pm anyway.
What’s not ok (you will lose 100% of your security deposit): (No parties) - Additional friends who aren't booked coming over for pre drinks.
-Drinking in the courtyard (the sound travels to the neighbours)
- Hanging out on the front porch or in the street in front of the house
- Waiting for a taxi/uber in front of the house (this draws a lot of attention to the fact that the neighbours live next to an airbnb house). Have them pick you up the street on the corner.
- Talking on the phone in front of the house (walk up the street)
- Smoking on the front porch, in front of the house, in the house, or in the back courtyard.
-Loitering/hanging out/drinking on the sidewalk/street/porch in front of the house. This includes smoking or taking phone calls out front where the neighbours can see you. You can hang out and talk on the phone and even drink in the back courtyard until 9pm. If you want to smoke, there are three parks within 30 meters of the house.
-Music/noise/talking after 9pm loud enough to hear it outside on the sidewalk or outside in the courtyard. Consider closing the windows to keep noise down.
-Leaving trash outside the house or in the street—especially bottles. To sum it up: don’t let the neighbours or the police notice that you’re there (other than quietly coming in and out) and don’t break anything. Make sure to explain the rules to your friends and make sure they know the door code and my number.
Please don't bother the neighbours

I'm a professional in my early 30's and I love traveling and exploring outdoors. I'm local to Sydney and really enjoy meeting international travelers coming through Sydney. It's one of the best cities in the world to live in.
