Truly a great view, perfect place for our stay

  • 5 of 5

Neat location with great food right across the street and a large grocery store (Coles) within 2 blocks. We walked everywhere - Sydney Harbor is about 1.5 miles each way. Concierges in the building were very attentive and we felt safe here. The building is a bit dated but it was perfect for our needs. The owner was easy to contact before and during our stay. The dryer did not work properly but the washing machine was fine and we managed with a clothes rack.

We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect

Great view. Central to trains, food, and anything one might want to experience in Sydney. The accommodations were above our expectations. The staff went up and beyond to assist in any way possible. Easy booking. Nothing unexpected. Perfect.

This was a very nice apartment in the most ideal location. My fiance and I walked everywhere. Toni and Stephen's place was well-appointed, comfortable and clean. We highly recommend this apartment for anyone who wants to immerse themselves in Sydney.

Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a view of the fireworks and that's exactly what we got, it was a amazing! don't think the photos do it justice. We had lovely time, it was no trouble to walk to Central Quay and around but if you don't like walking public transport is really cheap. We enjoyed being part of the buzzing community of Kings Cross, tried many of the local restaurants and found people really friendly. Kitchen needs a few more oven proof dishes, otherwise no complaints.

Lovely apartment with fantastic views

  • 4 of 5

This was our first visit to Australia and what a place to start! Very convenient for metro, supermarket, nice cafe/restaurant downstairs, numerous shops and eating places. We even walked from the city centre back to the apartment one night. The view from the balcony is awesome just like the photos. Internet really good and fast.

I have left off one star because the oven didnt seem to be working, the hob yes but oven no. This didnt deter us though. TV not so good either. And the rug in the lounge kept riding up.

On the plus side, the concierge downstairs were always very friendly and helpful, as was Stephen the owner.

Darlinghurst is a great buzzy neighbourhood full of cafes, bars, boutiques and some of the best restaurants in Sydney. It is close to the city making it the perfect jumping off point for any visitor.

Your neighbouring businesses when staying at this property include: Infinity Sourdough, one of the best bakeries in Sydney; Tropicana caffe, one of Sydney oldest established eating houses right next door!; Lotus Pod dress shop; Bar Brose restaurant and wine bar (one of our favourites, and its only 10 metres away!); Malabar Indian restaurant; Tiger Baker cafe; Spice I Am Thai restaurant; Grill'd burgers; Bar Coluzzi with some of the best coffee in Sydney; Mad Pizza; Bloody Mary's bar and restaurant, another one of our regular haunts; Una's for the best schnitzel in town, cheap and cheerful. You will not go hungry or thirsty around here!

You should also check out Messina's gelato on Victoria Street and the Gazebo Wine Garden on Elizabeth Bay Road. They are all highly recommended!

And on a sunny day, take a stroll down gorgeous Victoria Street towards Potts Point, take the McElhone Stairs down to Woolloomoolloo and head to the wharf for some of the best dining experiences Sydney has to offer - China Doll (one of our all time favourites), Manta for seafood, Otto for italian and Kingsley's for steak. Bon Appetit!!!
