Set very privately on the top floor of a beautifully renovated traditional terrace home, this great room with leafy outlook sets you up in one of the most desirable and central suburbs in Sydney. Stylish and close to everything yet quiet.

Note: over first weekend of March (Mardi Gras Party) and New Years minimum four day stays only please .

The space
Relax in the calming atmosphere of a beautiful ca 1870 terrace house in one the best parts of Sydney! Perfect balance of being right in the thick of it but also in a friendly, trendy neighbourhood.

The traditional terrace house has been lovingly renovated to preserve the original feel while adding clean design and luxury features (short-listed for the Interior Design Award).

Your room on the top floor is big, private, quiet and genuinely feels like a home. You have a private bathroom all to yourself.

Easy access to Central Station and the CBD. Within a block from your room you’ll find design inspiration, cafes, bars, restaurants and quirky shopping. Your friendly local hosts are happy to help you find your way around and you will already find lots of tips in your room.
Gay friendly.

I have fallen in love with this house when it was in very poor shape and renovated it with all the love and care the old lady deserved. I renovated for myself to live here, so everything is of the highest quality, beautifully designed and according to strict environmental concern. There is a big solar power plant for electricity, a rainwater tank providing water for toilets and washing machine, all materials and paints are non-toxic and zero VOC, your bed linen and towels are from high quality, natural materials

We live on the levels below your room with our two adopted dingoes Nala and Jarrah. Young Jarrah is extremely friendly, curious and a bit cheeky. So as cute as he is, please keep your door closed at all times.

Guest access
Spacious, light and airy, private room with queen size super comfortable wooden designer bed, orthopedic mattress with memory foam overlay, choice of pillows, wardrobe, heaps of shelf space, a good sized desk to work on with USB charge station and multiple power points, Samsung Smart TV and DVD player, a DVD and travel book library in your room, lots of information on Sydney.

Private bathroom with rain shower
Good quality internet access (wireless and Ethernet)
All natural, high quality linen, no sweaty polyester blends
Free toiletries by Ritual / Warrawee Australia (indigenous active
   ingredients, profits support indigenous communities, paraben and petroleum free,
GE free, not tested on animals)
Free use of washing machine, detergent provided

We can usually be flexible on check-in and check-out times. Drop off and pick up almost anytime. If you want to use the room longer on the day, please understand that we may charge a small additional fee.

Other things to note
We have two dingoes, Nala (very shy) and Jarrah (very friendly). They are not allowed on the guest level as we want the room dog-hair-free for our guests. Jarrah can be a bit cheeky though and sometimes likes collecting things - please help us by keeping the door to your room closed.

I am also a volunteer with the local wildlife rescue service. So there could be small rescue marsupials or native birds in/around the house well away from your room, usually outside. Let me know if you are interested and I might be able to introduce you to some Australian wildlife up close - that’s on top of the dingoes :)

Location

Surry Hills, New South Wales, Australia

Location, location, location is certainly one of the things guests love most about my house. The house is the ideal place for anyone who loves a quirky, creative and friendly neighborhood in walking distance to the city center. Easy access to a huge selection of cool cafes, great restaurants and funky bars as well as close to Central Station and the airport.

Because of its popularity, many places on Airbnb advertise themselves with the trendy 'Surry Hills' label - sometimes a bit freely... The groovy village center around Crown St and the much awarded library are literally a block away from my place, which is also just tucked away enough to not have the noise.
On the other hand, I recommend you avoid staying near main traffic thoroughfares like Elisabeth, Chalmers or Cleveland Streets.

I am originally German, in my early 50s and curious about life and people. I decided nearly twenty years ago that Sydney was going to be my new home, left a career in TV behind and started my own natural therapies business here instead :) My terrace house in Surry Hills was a huge labour of love - the seriously neglected grand dame from the 1870s was in desperate need of a face-lift and some loving care. Now she shines again in a blend of elegant and casual, of Sydney history and modern design and even got shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Award after the renovations (although to be fair, I think the outstanding points here were the clinic rooms downstairs and our ensuite - none of which you are likely to see during your stay). I live and relax in the top three levels (actually, the very top one will be where you live) while my business occupies the lower level. Apart from my house and Sydney, I love my friends, veeeery occasionally partying the night away as much as relaxing in good atmosphere or exploring nature. In short: experiencing plenty of life without losing balance or view to my values. Travel literally means the world to me! My home is my calm, peaceful oasis and I love to welcome interesting, respectful people into it in that spirit. The house is chock full with environmental credentials, using rainwater for toilets, feeding solar power back into the grid and using non toxic and energy conserving features throughout. In case you care as well :)

During your stay
I enjoy the opportunity to meet interesting people from all over the world through AirBnb. But I also like my private down time and personal space and will definitely respect yours!
Most of our guests are quite independent and I also provide loads of local maps, guidebooks and other stuff for guest use. But I am more than happy to answer any questions and give tips where I can if need be.

Kitchen use is not offered with this listing but feel free to refill your water bottle from the filtered tap in the kitchen. There are plenty of great cafes and restaurants in the neighborhood. In fact, this is one of Surry Hill's many draw cards (you will find a Guide Book with some of my personal favorites in your room). Who wants to cook on a trip anyway???
