Darlinghurst is an eclectic mix of people and venues. Being only minutes to the best of what Sydney has to offer, it is fast becoming sought after real estate. That being said, I still believe there is a grunginess and urban feel that resonates throughout the streets. This cosmopolitan suburb has busy cafes, restaurants, bars and nightlife outlets along Oxford, Crown, Victoria and Stanley Streets. The Darlinghurst Village is a heritage precinct where the majority of buildings are early 20th century terrace houses. It comprises 20 blocks bounded by Barcom Avenue, Forbes and Oxford Streets and Taylor Square. Darlinghurst boasts Oxford Street, Sydney’s most famous strip shopping street, where you will find everything from supermarkets to gift shops, through to alternative clothing boutiques, late night bookshops and music stores. Darlinghurst is home to range exceptional designer and home wares outlets, as well as a great selection of various ethnic cafes and restaurants, from basic to up market. Oxford Street' exclusive cinemas, the Chauvel and the Palace Academy Twins and Palace Verona, specialise in foreign and art house films and International Film Festivals.
389 route on next corner, takes you to Bondi Beach, City and Circular Quay Ferry to everywhere. I have a bike in the back courtyard with a baby seat available, which is a great way to see the city and parklands. If your children are small, there are a few scooters also at your disposal. On nearly every street corner in Darlinghurst / City you can find a 'go get' or 'car share' vehicle. Even a big van if you want to pack up the bikes and surfboard and go on a day trip. I use go-get when my car is in the shop and they are great. There are allocated go-get spots everywhere.
Other things to note
Find a detailed house manual on arrival and within booking information. This useful document can be shared with all guests and must be signed by all adults listed on booking prior to your stay. Also if you wish to check in early you will need to book the day before as it has proven too difficult with my work schedule to accomodate bag drops etc. I would love to accomodate these needs but need to keep expectations realistic. If the cleaners are there they can not be responsible for others belongings as they have enough to manage.
