Description

A 15 minute walk to the heart of Sydney via Darling Harbour, City Lights Terrace offers a unique Sydney stay experience. The building was constructed in the 1800's, to house workers employed in the many wool storage buildings in Ultimo and Sydney's Rocks areas. The house is compact, in keeping with its humble beginnings and has the feel of original Sydney town. It has been fully renovated and newly furnished to provide a modern, comfortable home away from home holiday experience.

The terrace has 3 bedrooms and will sleep 6 people plus an infant. It is fully airconditioned. The 3 bedrooms consist of 2 upstairs bedrooms - one with a toilet/wash basin, whilst the downstairs bedroom has a double bunk bed - 2 Singles. Both upstairs bedrooms have Queen size beds. Good quality linen, all bedding and towels are provided. A highchair, cot, bedding, and 2 toddler gates are available by arrangement. There is also a toilet/bathroom on the ground floor.

The stair case is quite steep, typical of a terrace house.

Other features are a private courtyard with a leafy canopy overhead, an outdoor table setting for 6 and BBQ. Double glazed windows have been installed in the front rooms to ensure the house is a quiet retreat for our guests. Attractive polished timber floors and a skylight in the new, fully equipped kitchen. A comfortable, cosy lounge with an LCD TV and home entertainment system. Wireless internet is provided free of charge.

The kitchen has a table setting for 4 and a 2nd table may be added to comfortably seat 6 people. There is no separate dining room. We have provided books, board games, and a selection of over 40 DVD's for relaxing after a day exploring Sydney.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a Great Stay What a great location, and clean residence. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and Nola the owner could not be more helpful, friendly and accommodating to our needs. Had visitors over from the UK as well, who thought the ease of getting around was perfect. The property is lovely, and as stated. The stairs took some getting used to, but overall, I would have no hesitation staying here in the future!Thank You

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great place to see Sydney. Five of us had a great time at Nola's place. All was as described. Plenty of room for five, nice outdoor patio, well equipped kitchen and incredibly near transit and the main sights of Sydney.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Girls Weekend My four friends and I stayed at Nola's property and were impressed from the very first email contact. She is friendly and efficient. The property was beautifully presented with great beds, pillows and linen. It was incredibly close to Darling Harbour and an easy off-street walk to Central Train Station. LOVED IT. Would definitely stay again. Thanks Nola!
