The SpaceI have been told many times that I couldn't have scored a better location to live. Its just off the main road so avoids most the noise but literally 20 steps and you are in the heart of the coolest place in Sydney.
The house is an open great space with plenty of natural light. Guests have a private medium sized room with a very comfortable, expensive queen bed. Your room also has a small TV connected to a Playstation 3 which gives you access to Netflix for those nights you want to relax and watch something in bed.
The unit has a private door you can easily drop in and out of (no doorman, lifts, buzzers etc.). It exits straight out into an alleyway just off king st.
The Kitchen is nice and open with everything you need to make a feast. For anyone who loves a coffee and can brew a great espresso, there is a proper espresso machine to love and use for those baristas out there. Guest AccessAs a guest you will have access to fast unlimited wireless internet, Netflix in your room, a well functioning kitchen, a space in the fridge for yourself, washer dryer, iron, ironing board and hair dryer. Its a shared house so you get to use anything that isn't inside our bedroom basically when its not already occupied of course. Interaction with GuestsAs hosts we work or are occupied with our own passions most days of the week leaving you to have the house to yourself during the day. during the evening we are either out seeing a movie at the cinema across the road, going to dinner or seeing friends in the area. If we are around we will usually be somewhere in the house reading or relaxing. I, Daniel, will be cooking up storms and enjoying many glasses of wine during the evening and we both are friendly and approachable and love a good chat. But also if you like your peace and quiet we are very observant and respectful for those who like to keep to themselves and will give you all the space you may need. The Neighborhoodits very close (5 minute walk at most) to the train station, and buses are regular to any direction into or out of the city that stop one street over. So basically public transport of all kinds is remarkably close to where you will be staying. To go anywhere its just minutes away to start your journey.
There are markets down the road every weekend, be it 2 minutes walk away on King street or 10 minutes walk down Wilson St, many live venues for music, comedy, or other performances in the area and a hundred other exciting adventures happening regularly.
There is so much going on very close by: neat boutique shops, cinemas, plays, art, comedy, gigs, markets and more plus the food, OH! the food; fancy, gourmet, cheap, ethnic, organic, vegan, vegetarian, diet friendly, very late, fast, best, wild, weird and so much more. There are more cool pubs, bars, beer gardens and your holes in the wall centralised left and right from our home than anywhere in Sydney.
There's a grocery store across the road, one 1 minute down the road, a gourmet grocer 5 minutes up the road and another 8 minutes the other way so you're covered. There are great places to shop and look around for art, gifts, trinkets, vintage, handmade and all sorts of stuff.
If you want to stay in the most exciting and eventful area of Sydney, look no further than Newtown, If you want to have a great place to stay look no further. Getting Aroundgetting anywhere is a pinch and quick. If you want to visit the centre of Sydney its no more than a few minutes on the train, which is 4 minutes walk away, or a bus which is one minute away. There are also buses that will take you straight to Bondi or Coogee beach.
Taxis that you can hail any day or night will drive down King street (20 steps away) regularly, even at 4am if need be.
If you drive there is a free but timed parking all over the place as well as a few great spots on the street and back streets to leave your car during your whole stay.
