5 star rating is based on a great clean modern apartment, awesome location and great communication by the owners.
Beds were comfy, very spacious for a terrace apartment. We had apartment 2 on the first level. Enjoyed the bathroom it was very clean and the kitchen is the main hub of the unit so it was good to chill in.
Location is right in the middle of Surry Hills - hipster heaven. Waking up to the Bourke St Bakery was great and dining in Surry Hills - there is alot to choose from so you are spoilt with choices. It is only a $13/$14 taxi ride into Circ Quay and Darling Harbour and its also a 15 min walk to the train station into the city. Bus stop is a little walk away as well. Very central.
There is a Woolworths supermarket just up the road so it was VERY easy to get supplies. There is also a corner store too.
The owners make an extra effort to make your stay great - gave us a great last minute rate, informed us on where to park our rental car and assisted us when we had issues. Very helpful.
We stayed a family of 3, for 3 nights and the only downside was staying on a Saturday night and finding out next door was having a late night party. Thankfully the music ended at 1am however I do not think the neighbours realised how much sound travel between terrace properties when conversating outside in the back courtyard until 5am. Sleeping in the backroom of the apartment let us hear every word of that conversation. We did not feel comfortable in telling them at that time but hopefully this review assists for future weekend stays.
Every other night was great though - awesome sleep. That one night does not deter from the 5 star rating =) i recommend the property no problem.
