About Lindy Davies

I work internationally in film and theatre.

Lindy Davies purchased this house in 1992

Why Lindy Davies chose Sydney CBD

Surry Hills is the most vibrant and exciting place to live. It is the home of artists and creative people and is replete with restaurants, theatres and galleries.

There are numerous original clothing shops and interesting gift shops.

The house is within walking distance of the city and is an exceptional location for those interested in unique cuisine.

This is my home and I rent it out while I am working overseas or interstate.

What makes this house unique

It is a beautiful house to stay in because of the unique light and the quality of peace created by the Chinese Tree of Heaven. A true oasis.

Around the corner is the dynamic and hip Crown Street filled with life, people and great shopping. You are only five minutes from the city and fifteen minutes away from access to all the main holiday attractions and yet it feels as though you are in the country.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lindy,

Merry Christmas!

Wonderful Lindy,house,location

  • 5 of 5
There were 6 of us and how lucky we were to have found Lindy and her house. She answered every question we had, her house was perfect for 6, the location was walkable to everything. We could not believe our good fortune. Her place was exactly as described, clean, charming, wonderful. We bought stuff at the market and had a BBQ one night BECAUSE SHE HAS ONE! Lovely patio area. When it was time to go to the airport, I called the taxi service and Lindy's tele # is in the taxi system so they know where to come. We highly recommend this place. I don't normally go back to the same place twice but I would come back to this place in a minute. The restaurants located down the street are outstanding. I just loved everything about the house and the location. We walked to the Sydney Opera House several times. We took a bus to Bondi beach but other than that, we walked everywhere.

Great location in Surry Hills. This unique and relaxed house had everything that we needed and more. We thought it was even better than the photos. We have rented lots of places and this one was the best with a friendly, responsive and flexible owner.

A family get together

  • 5 of 5
We spent a very enjoyable week in this lovely and interesting house with three of our adult children in January. Another of our children lives in Crown Street so this was a perfect choice to be near her and enjoy the wonderful restaurants bars and pubs in the immediate vicinity. We found the house to be very well equipped with everything one would need for a long or short stay. The beds were comfortable, the shower had great water pressure and temperature, the lounge had seating for all of us and the kitchen had every appliance one could wish for. A nice big fridge kept our food and drinks perfectly chilled and the washer and dryer served our needs well. We loved the leafy courtyard and the upper deck area was a cool and airy place to enjoy afternoon drinks and nibblies!! We all appreciated the good quality white linen, duvets and large white fluffy bath towels. All in all, our week long stay was very enjoyable and we would definitely recommend this lovely holiday property. Lindy, the charming owner was there to meet us on our arrival and explained all the workings of the house and refunded our security deposit promptly! No complaints at all!!
