We (two couples) stayed in this unique apartment for a week in August and found it to be a wonderful location for visiting Sydney. The bus line is 1/2 block away, the restaurants are awesome in Surry Hills, and the shopping is interesting. Loved Chee Soon & Fitzgerald for shopping and Kylie Kwong\'s Restaurant is worth the wait. This apartment was a great find and Lindy is wonderful.

We had a great stay in April and absolutely loved the location. The house was very large and I loved sitting out on the deck with my coffee and breakfast from Bourke Street Bakery (around the corner and not to be missed). The house was very clean, comfortable, safe, with friendly neighbors.
A unique experience and much better than a hotel! Alyse, New York City
We enjoyed our stay in Surry Hills tremendously. The house offers more space and facilities than any hotel room could, it\'s located in a very central, convenient and pleasant part of town with great public transport or the chance to walk. Great food and restaurants are close by, too.The flat itself is beautiful and very tastefully decorated, yet it has a \"lived in\" feeling to it which makes it very welcoming. We will definitely stay there again when coming back to Sydney.

This unusual and exotic house is opposite a park and comprises of two pavilions facing each other across an internal courtyard, which is canopied by a fifteen metre Chinese Tree of Heaven.
The front pavilion is a three story glass tower: the top floor containing a bedroom with a queen size bed(1000 Threadcount sheets) and television, the next level, a bathroom and second bedroom with a queen size bed (1000 Threadcount sheets). A spiral staircase leads down to the ground floor study, which contains a queen size sofa bed, tel/fax, scanner,copier, colour printer and wireless or ethernet broadband connection. The study opens into the courtyard.
A walkway crossing above the courtyard from the second level leads to a sundeck and the second pavilion. Stairs go down into an open living room and dining area with polished timber floors and a gas fireplace.
The fully appointed kitchen (smeg and bosch appliances), laundry (miele appliances) and toilet are adjacent to this space. The living area contains a stereo sound system with ipod connection, lcd television, dvd player, Foxtel cable channels, and opens onto the internal courtyard which houses the gas barbeque.
The house is peaceful and filled with sunlight.
We loved the location of this accommodation. You are right in the heart of lively Crown St. yet you have sufficient distance to allow solitude. Restaurants, Art galleries and parks surround you and inside you have a thoughtfully appointed,unique and extremely comfortable abode. It is well situated in relation to the city centre and the bus stop is just a few steps away. We'll be back! D.King London
