About this listing
Immaculately located, spacious, furnished 1 bedroom apartment wholly available to guest, right in the middle of it & all you need, 5 min walk from Central station & 5 minute walk to Crown St & other attractions. Sunroom, bathroom & small galley kitchen with dining table/desk. Classic Surry Hills terrace (converted into triplex apartments, your space will be the best of the 3), an authentic inner-city experience in my humble abode filled with love
If booked, the whole space will be yours to enjoy alone.
The apartment contains a trove of trinkets I've curated and collected over time to create a relaxed, intimate home atmosphere. Thematic furnishings and classic adornments throughout emulate an old Hollywood glamour. Well-decorated with vintage-style French Provincial furnishings, you will feel like royalty when you rest your head on the incredible king-size pillow-top mattress, atop a stunning vintage-style bed with a velvet headboard.
A sunroom connected to the bedroom via french doors floods the bedroom with the morning light, (if you choose to keep the blinds open, that is) and the combined kitchen and living room provides all you need to prepare a meal and have friends over to eat on the art-deco style dining table, which doubles as a workspace. The flatscreen TV is currently in the bedroom, but can be easily moved to any room you prefer to watch it in as an antenna extension is available. The bathroom is also light-filled and the shower head generous.
Please be aware that the apartment IS an inner-city terrace converted into triplex apartments, it will never be able to look as shiny and modern as a clean hotel room/modern/serviced apartment, as hard as I try please understand that although I have the space professionally cleaned before each guest, it is still my home and an older inner-city terrace home at that - it is a unique, warm homely space with individual perks and flaws, however I will always go above and beyond to ensure your stay is not just comfortable but enjoyable :)
Directly across the road is a cafe open 6 days a week that provides free wi-fi, and depending on your device, can be accessed from as far as the kitchen.
Guest will have full access to the entire one bedroom apartment including kitchen, cooking utilities, utensils and even pantry; once I hand over the keys I will leave for you to enjoy your stay.
Interaction with guests
I will be available to help with anything special requirements or information about the area and local's picks, during your stay I will be in Sydney in various other areas and will be contactable anytime by phone. In the ground floor apartment below you are two very friendly neighbours who will also help with anything needed immediately.
Please note that the two apartments below mine receive echoes of loud sounds made in the top floor that fall down. A couple of visitors and friends are welcome for socialising, just please respect the neighbours right to a peaceful environment, and if you are planning on having extra guests please let me know as a courtesy and understand that you alone will be held accountable for any damage or missing personal items.
I'd probably rather you didn't take my clothes or try them on without asking me (you may be tempted to play dress-ups) and be as careful as possible with my tea sets and anything shiny. Also, any toiletries that I haven't placed out specifically for your use (e.g: things like my make-up, personal items etc), please leave as they are.
Pets are not allowed due to the nature of the apartment, however in exceptional circumstances with a small pet I am open to negotiate on this.
Smoking is preferred downstairs on the front step, however occasionally I allow light smoking in the sunroom as long as the windows are completely open and more than two people aren't smoking at once - as long as no ash gets anywhere but an ashtray or out the window, i'm not too worried.
