Mews 14 is a great place and these rules and requests ensure your comfort and safety.

Mews is home to its full-time residents so you must agree to read the check in instructions carefully and respect our neighbours privacy, the directions we provide are detailed and clear so please do not ask our neighbours for assistance. Please enter and leave quietly and do not drag suitcases on the entry tiles, Mews may not suit you if you can't lift your suitcase and use the wide, carpeted stairs. I am 59 and I manage with no trouble but elderly or frail people may not be able too.

We only accommodate quiet, non smoking guests and no parties and booked guests only on site.

The cleaner comes in after your stay but the unit must be left in a tidy condition, this means as you found it! i.e. all furniture and fittings (linen, lamps etc) back in the same spot. There is no need to strip the bed (though it is appreciated if you do)! Please do not remove make up with the towels! The dishes must be well washed, and returned to their home. Kitchen surfaces wiped down, recycling and rubbish must be put in the bins located on the lower ground floor and please remember to remove all items from the fridge when you leave. If you stay more than 5 days you have the option of a cleaning/ linen service if you elect not to use this you must do the usual cleaning as (i.e. floors, bathrooms). We are proud of "sparkling clean" and request you report any items that are damaged during your stay so we can replace them.

Please do not leave the AC on when you are out.

We will always try to be on hand to help if needed between 8am and 9pm but we do not offer hotel like Concierge services so we appreciate if guests consider what they would do if they were at there own home- there are full manuals so please check these if needed. We won't come up at 11pm to change a light globe or show you how to work the TV remote! In an emergency in Australia call 000.

Sorry if this seems onerous but if you like a sparkling clean and quiet unit you have found the right listing (hence the "rules') !

You must also acknowledge
Must climb stairs - There is 2 set of stairs to the Atrium then 2 sets of wide internal stairs- easy for the average person
No parking on property - There is street parking nearby and metered parking out the front except between 3-7 pm weekdays when it is a clearway

This accommodation was just what I needed - had to book somewhere else when my first airbnb was very disappointing. This place was clean, quiet and felt incredibly safe for a solo traveller. And so close to everything! Would stay here again in a heart beat, thanks so much!

Thank you Rose, many of my return guests appreciate the professional way my apartments are run with all correct insurances for example. We pride ourselves in being absolutely reliable and offering a sparkling clean, safe and quite home away from home. Hope to see you again. Narelle & Simone

Newtown is a great part of Sydney to be in, and Narelle's apartment is so very handy to train station, bus stops, supermarket and all the cafes and restaurants, not to mention Sydney's best bakery. It is also 20 mins from the airport, so a taxi (or uber) is convenient and inexpensive. For us it was also literally round the corner from where our son is living - we couldn't have been in a better location for a family visit. the apartment is beautifully appointed, with everything we needed. the noise-cancelling shutter and blind meant the early morning traffic on Enmore Road didn't disturb the holiday mood, and the views from the rooftop garden are amazing.

Many thanks Anne, I am glad you enjoyed the location, sparkling clean unit and all Newtown has to offer. We love the new roof top garden which offers a amazing space to enjoy a drink looking over the city. I hope to be able to welcome you again. All good wishes, Narelle

Great location, very quiet but a stones throw from restaurants, bars, shops and great transport links. Lovely roof terrace with great views. Would definitely recommend this apartment.

Great place, surrounded by fun night life and is close to transit, but wasn't too loud and had blackout curtains. We went to a show at the enmore theatre just down the road. The rooftop patio was perfect and had amazing views.

Response from Narelle:
Hi many thanks Andrew for becoming one of our many favourite guests. The roof terrace which is very large has just been completely refurbished with fantastic plants and outdoor settings it's a very good place to experience the views straight down King Street. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and found parking not too difficult all good wishes Narelle

Narelle User ProfileNarelle is a superhost.

I strive to offer fabulous, unique, sparkling clean accommodation in the best suburb in Sydney (Newtown) 3km from the CBD, walk to Sydney Uni and RPA Hospital. In Canberra you will find my units in O'Connor/ Lyneham, these are Inner North suburbs, 3km from CBD and walk to Australian National University.

My point of difference is I have a ABN and my business is run to a professional standard with correct insurances etc. There are no common shared spaces.

Having just returned from travelling (kayaking in Antarctica and exploring Chile) and having worked in Geneva and NYC, I strive to offer guests what I need myself, a very comfortable bed, quality linen, quiet but interesting environment and a place to eat and work (a real table and chairs!), a couch, outdoor space and Wifi!

Much of my time is spent travelling and hosting and I also have my own Clinical and teaching mental health practice so I am busy!

Here's my hosting story:

In 2000 I purpose built Studio Q as a stand alone Studio in my garden in O'Connor, a sought after leafy inner suburb with cafes a easy 10 min walk away. The City is 3km away and ANU a 15 min walk.

I designed Studio Q for quality, privacy and comfort and to provide something stylish but not generic or bland! A private outdoor deck was important and guests love sitting there.

Studio Q is so popular and often booked out via bigger (more expensive) sites i.e. (Wotif) so I added 3 more places so there is now a range of professionally run properties for you to choose from. There is now a 2 bedroom (Earle St) as well and the smaller Qtee which is great for shorter stay.

Then I discovered Newton (Sydney) and brought 2 fantastic apartments in the same complex with a roof top garden. 3 mins to the train and on "the strip" of restaurants, cafes, bookshops, movie and live theatres. Please read more under Newtown Mews listings.

I am happy to provide info on local cafes, great walks and the best the area has to offer. I am a non intrusive host, on site in Canberra at Studio Q and available by phone email for Newtown Mews.
