The space
Welcome to Sydney!

A large comfy queen size bed awaits you within this bright and airy room with double French doors, with double glazing, leading to your sunny balcony overlooking the street.
There is no other accommodation so close to everything in the centre of Sydney with the same advantages. We offer free wifi, reverse cycle air conditioning in the bedrooms, and a laundry across the road has a very good service at a very reasonable rate. They wash, dry and fold your clothes while you are out sightseeing. Why waste your precious time doing menial tasks while on holiday?

This is a traditional terrace on three and a half levels, situated just south of Hyde Park and in walking distance (6 minutes) of Central Railway Station.

We are close to °Hyde Park °Centre Point Tower ° Sydney Opera House °Sydney Harbour Bridge with the Bridge Climb °Darling Harbour. °Chinatown °all theatres °museums °art galleries °St Mary's Cathedral °Fox Studios °Sydney Cricket Ground °2 swimming pools °the Rocks °the Domain.
And for Gourmets, some of the BEST restaurants that Sydney has to offer.
While you are staying here - walk two blocks up the hill to Crown Street and visit Zaida Modern Lebanese Restaurant - the owner, Joe, has the best customer service, a memory for what each person likes, and the ability to make you feel special!
And it goes without saying that the food is EXCELLENT!
The dips and Haloumi stack - and thin potato chips - will keep you coming back - as will the grilled lamb salad. And its great if you are a gluten free person as I am.
I always choose to eat in the leafy courtyard at the rear, either with my family or when eating alone.
The local buses will take you to all the best beaches and it is a six to seven minute walk to Central Railway Station and only an eight minute walk to Paddy's Market which is open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

There are so many cafes, restaurants and coffee shops in the immediate vicinity, which will suit every taste and every budget - and you can shop till you drop in the City, Darling Harbour, The Rocks and Oxford Street.

There is one downside - we cannot get TV reception in this home, so if you are addicted to TV, please don't book.

Enjoy your stay in Sydney's CBD with its city life and famous icons and all the best beaches just a bus ride away, including famous Bondi Beach with the Icebergs Club at the south end.

PLEASE NOTE: A minimum stay of 4 nights applies for Christmas and NEW YEAR'S EVE with a holiday loading. The holiday loading is written on the calendar and just to clarify, the rate for the nights around Christmas/New Year is $250 per night with no weekly discount. I trust this helps.

Thanks and look forward to meeting you!

Guest access
Guests are welcome to use the kitchen for tea or coffee anytime, and there is a very large range of teas to choose from plus organic coffee, and also to prepare breakfast if they are here for a longer time or have special needs.
I have found that most guests choose to eat out and enjoy the varied range of foods in this location without the work of shopping and preparation and cleaning up afterwards! After all, they are on holiday and spending time "at home" cuts down time enjoying this beautiful city.

Other things to note
Communication is everything - please ask if there is anything you want to know.

I'm into health, fitness and organic food, and before retirement, worked as a senior manager for 20 years for a multi national newspaper corporation. My interests are meeting people and conversation. I enjoy hearing other people's stories and learning about their experiences. Having lived in Sydney for 26 years, I am always happy to recommend restaurants and things to see. Any early risers who stay here are welcome to drive with me to Bondi Beach to enjoy the beautiful view and walk barefoot in the sand - a great way to get over jet lag fast. One thing - I usually aim to be there before 6 am. Everyone is different, and that's OK". The things I can't live without? Mmmm . . . my family, fresh ocean air, good healthy simple food, exercise, the company and conversation of positive, happy people. And most importantly . . . just being. We are human beings . . . not human doings. Looking forward to meeting you!

During your stay
I am very happy to spend time with guests if this is what they want however, I am equally comfortable to leave guests to enjoy their own schedule. It is my belief that people who choose to stay at a BnB are very lovely people and willing to share stories and time together when it fits in with their plans.
