Clean three bedroom house and only 200 meters from the city. This pretty much the closest house to the downtown CBD in all of Sydney.
Flexible hassle free check-in with a code, instead of keys
It's on a quiet street in Sydney's trendiest neighbourhood, Surry Hills.
8 minute walk from Central or Museum stations
3 minutes walk to Bondi & Coogee beach buses
5 minutes walk to China Town
15-20 minutes walk to Darling Harbour
25 minutes walk to the Opera House or faster via train/bus/uber
- No parties
(Most of these rules are not relevant for families. The main theme is not to be noisy which bothers the neighbours)
- No visitors other than the number booked (to prevent parties)
- No music after 9pm
- No drinking at the house past 8:55pm (to prevent partying/noise)
- No hanging out in the courtyard past 9pm (sound carries to the neighbours)
- No hanging out on the street or porch in front of the house (it reminds the neighbours that they live next to an airbnb house with lots of guests coming & going)
- No talking on the phone on the porch/street in front of the house
- No waiting for a taxi/uber in front of the house (walk up the street)
- No smoking in the house, on the porch/street in front of the house, or in back courtyard. (There are 3 parks less than 40 meters away)
- Only whisper after midnight & no more than 4 people in a room after midinight (what seems like a normal volume becomes loud when several people try to talk over each other. Alcohal also makes people unaware of volume)
- No slamming doors
- No running up and down the stairs (the stairs are on a shared wall with another house and the sound travels through)
This is an awesome spot for a weekend away with several friends to enjoy the Surry Hills night life--and I want you to have a great time--just don't be stupid or obnoxious. Like 95% of airbnb’ers you are likely very responsible and unlikely to cause any trouble, but please pass this note on to the rest of your group about the house rules and do’s/don’ts in order not to lose your security deposit. Recent incident and example of what not to do: The main airbnb contact was a very responsible person (most responsible in the group, as is generally the case)—however, it’s your responsibility to explain the rules to the rest of your group. You will lose 100% of your security deposit if: -The neighbours call the police to complain -The police call me to complain -Neighbours call me to complain -You break any of the house rules on the airbnb listing. My airbnb house isn’t a secret from the neighbours but they don’t want to be bothered, which could cause me to have to have to quit airbnb.
If you're visiting Sydney for a party weekend, it's ok to have pre-drinks at the house until 8:30pm but then you need to go out to the bars, othewise it will be considered a party to the neighbours. Surry Hills is the trendiest neighbourhood in Sydney with the best bars so there's no reason you should want to drink in the house past 8:30pm anyway.
What’s not ok (you will lose 100% of your security deposit): (No parties) - Additional friends who aren't booked coming over for pre drinks.
-Drinking in the courtyard (the sound travels to the neighbours)
- Hanging out on the front porch or in the street in front of the house
- Waiting for a taxi/uber in front of the house (this draws a lot of attention to the fact that the neighbours live next to an airbnb house). Have them pick you up the street on the corner.
- Talking on the phone in front of the house (walk up the street)
- Smoking on the front porch, in front of the house, in the house, or in the back courtyard.
-Loitering/hanging out/drinking on the sidewalk/street/porch in front of the house. This includes smoking or taking phone calls out front where the neighbours can see you. You can hang out and talk on the phone and even drink in the back courtyard until 8:30pm. If you want to smoke, there are three parks within 30 meters of the house. -Music/noise/talking after 8:30pm loud enough to hear it outside on the sidewalk or outside in the courtyard. Consider closing the windows to keep noise down. -Leaving trash outside the house or in the street—especially bottles. To sum it up: don’t let the neighbours or the police notice that you’re there (other than quietly coming in and out) and don’t break anything. Make sure to explain the rules to your friends and make sure they know the door code and my number. Please don't bother the neighbours
