This light and airy room is comfortable for one or two guests, with a queen sized bed. Close to fabulous cafes, wine bars, pubs and restaurants, and walking distance to CBD, Surry Hills and Newtown, this is a great spot to spend some time in Sydney, and it's walking distance to everything Sydney has to offer. If you're feeling lazy, hop on the train which is just around the corner.

The space

The large terrace is comfortable with several living areas. A separate tv room sits in the middle room, leading to a separate living room at the front of the house, and an eat in kitchen complete with everything you'll need to make a cup of tea or prepare a three course meal. A courtyard out the back gets great afternoon sun. You have to check it out :)

Guest access

There is a single bathroom/toilet that is shared. We simply request respect from guests to limit their time in the bathroom in the morning before work hours.

Guests are able to use the kitchen, laundry, common space and have full wifi access.

We have a range of books and magazines to share, a piano to channel your inner Beethoven, or Netflix n'chill if that's what you're feeling.

Interaction with guests

Interaction with guests can be as much or as little as guests like. Happy to leave guests to themselves or take them down to the pub or the backyard for a beer or cuppa tea!

Other things to note

I work freelance as a Photographer / Film Maker so i'm away a lot. If i'm not working, i'm up in Byron visiting my daughter as well, so the huge house is basically all yours, so go crazy (well... not crazy) :D

Paul's place was perfectly located for Sydney uni and for getting around the city easily too. He's a fab host, really relaxed and welcoming (as is the cat!), and the booking/arriving process was all super easy, and Paul was great about letting me drop my stuff early as my flight got in v early. I occasionally used the heater but rarely needed it as there's a double duvet and a blanket. It was ideal for a month stay as I had cupboard & fridge space in the kitchen so could cook. I really loved my stay there and didn't want to leave!

As a native Sydneysider in town for a few weeks, Paul's place is perfectly located on a quiet street near excellent cafes and bars next to Sydney University, located next to Redfern station which is arguably a better station than Central. I'd only ever stay in the inner west or the beach in Sydney. Paul's place is a typical inner-west terrace house with a lot of character and history and he was a great host. Check-in was very quick and effortless.

I can't write a normal review because this is not a normal place... in a good way! If you are looking for the neighborhood vibe that makes you feel like you live here, this is the perfect place! Super close to Redfern station, the Japanese eaterie around the corner is amazing, the little bike store/hipsterish coffee place just down the street for an ice coffee, all from a quaint and cozy place offered by Paul. Once you step in, you will feel home! One thing that is important for me is check-in and it was one of the most hassle free check-ins! Also, I'm in love with the Instagram famous cat at the house which obviously I took an instaselfie with. The room itself is nice and private, I came and went as I pleased, there was a place to hang and put all my clothes and of course the all needed fan next to the bed for the hot summer days. This place really made my trip to Sydney a fantastic one!!

Great stay! Paul, his housemate Jens and Che the cat are really welcoming. The location cannot be faulted; less than five minutes walk to Redfern station and then just one stop to Central or two stops to Town Hall. The house and bedroom are spacious and sharing the bathroom with two others was not a problem. The house does get cold in Winter so something to bear in mind if you're as weak skinned as me! Overall this is a great place in a great location with welcoming hosts so I would definitely recommend. Thank you :)

Great place great location so close to Redfern station and many shops. Highly recommend if staying in the area!

Paul's place was perfect for a Sydney weekend. Close to transport, Carriageworks and the Powerhouse, and numerous cafes. Nice room, warm bed and a friendly cat!
