The SpaceWe hope you love your room :)
It's bright and airy, with a high ceiling and a large window, with shutter blinds to ensure your privacy. We think you'll find the double bed very comfortable, it has a pillow top mattress, with four brand new pillows and additional cushions. The sheets will be freshly washed and the room comes fully furnished as shown in the photos.
Also in your room is a small table and chair, two double wardrobes, with coat hangers. There are also two large dressers, with plenty of cupboard space for you to store your belongings.
Feel free to ask us if you need to use the portable heater, air-conditioning unit or hairdryer.
We love our home, we think our kitchen/lounge area is the showstopper, with a large glass ceiling which floods the whole area with natural light.
We have a modern kitchen with all of the things you should need, cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster, pots, pans, cutlery and crockery, we've even got a juicer if you fancy making your self a fresh fruit juice. There is lots of free cupboard space for you to store your food.
The kitchen leads out onto our garden which gets the sun most of the day, so it's nice to relax outside and it wouldn't be Australia if we didn't have a BBQ! Also in the garden is our washing machine - if you want to wash your clothes and hang them on the washing line to dry.
Our lounge is a great area to sit back and relax on the sofa, read a book or plan your trip, it has built in ceiling fans if you want to keep cool.
We have a dining area with a large table and comfy chairs to eat your meals, or if you'd rather you can sit at the large island on the stools in the kitchen area.
Also downstairs is a cloakroom toilet, so you don't have to walk far from your room if you need the toilet. If you want to shower or bath, this is located on the second floor, we'll show you where everything is when you arrive :) Guest AccessYour room is on the ground floor, just as you walk in the house your room is to your left, so this gives you really easy access to the rest of the house: kitchen, lounge, dining room and garden. There is also a downstairs toilet for your use.
We have wifi - we'll give you our password so you can connect automatically. Interaction with GuestsWe were all once travellers in Sydney too! So we understand what it's like to be in a big city and not know where everything is! We will be more than happy to answer any questions about getting around the city or recommend some cool places for you to check out.
We are a group of 5 English and Irish young (ish) 20 and 30 somethings, the house has 5 bedrooms on 3 floors so it doesn't feel crowded, in fact quite the opposite! We work hard during the week, so the house will be very quiet during the day. We love to cook and gather in the kitchen for a couple of hours each evening cooking our dinners, you are more than welcome to come and join us, socialise and ask an questions you like. During the weekend we like to go out to bars and events, drink and eat out, we are much more of a lively lot when we know we don't have work in the morning! Again you'd be more than welcome to join us. The NeighborhoodWe may be biased but we think Surry Hills is Sydneys best neighborhood! Not only is it in the location amazing with easy access to Sydneys most popular places, it's also an amazing place to hang out, with it's eclectic mix of cafes, bars and shops, there's plenty to keep you occupied. Getting AroundWe have a Coles supermarket, fruit and veg shop, butchers, sushi, pharmacy, liquorstore, cafes, restaraunts and pubs all within 5 minutes walk.
You are in walking distance to many of Sydneys most popular places - with easy access to public transport, we have a bus stop a couple of minutes from the house, which takes you directly to central station in 5mins, from there you can get almost anywhere with ease. We always use the Goo.gle Maps app, which tells you exactly which buses, trains or routes to take if walking, if not just ask us.
Just across the street is the lovely Moore Park, which is a lovely area to go and relax and soak up the sun. Next to that is Centennial Park, which often hosts some big concerts.
The Rocks Other Things to NoteCheck in is Flexible: This means you can arrive anytime the day of your stay, providing you give me plenty of notice what time you are likely to arrive. If we had a guest the previous night, your room may not be ready until after 2pm (we will wash the sheets and towels etc so everything is fresh for your stay) but you are more than welcome to use the rest of the facilities in the house / room.
