The Terrace; is a charming two-level, two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment on the border of East Sydney, Darlinghurst and Kings Cross with everything that Sydney has to offer within easy walking distance (Sydney CBD 10mins, Hyde Park 5 mins, Oxford St 10 mins, Kings Cross 5mins)

The apartment is very spacious, elegantly decorated in a modern contemporary style and very well equipped with all mod cons. Due to the layout of the apartment the room and bathroom that I let out offer total privacy for my guests.

The room is situated on the lower floor, it is a spacious bedroom with large built in robes, a comfortable double bed with quality linen and its own cute balcony with lounger. Next to the bedroom is the second bathroom with large walk in shower.

The main living/dining area is also on this floor; it is a bright warm space, stylishly furnished with an eclectic fusion of art work and mementos from my travels plus large screen TV surround sound and cable. It also has a six person glass dining table. Off the main living space is another balcony that my guests often sit and have breakfast at, it has a charming view and surrounded in trees with birds in the morning.
A foodie and self-confessed coffee addict, my kitchen is well set up with a Nepresso coffee machine and all utensils/gadgets that a good cook would need. All guest have use of the kitchen if they desire, thought I have plenty of yummy eating options within a few streets. I also provide breakfast each day with scrummy homemade bread and bakery goods.

One of my gems is of course the sun-drenched roof terrace that I have developed into a superb entertainment area with all-weather couches, lighting, heating, cocktail cabinet, fridge, sound system, sun umbrella and even a garden growing organic fruit, veggies and herbs. Guests are welcome to join me on it or use it if I am not using it.

The location is also really central and there is number of things to do and see all within a few kilometres; Stanley St (Sydney’s little Italy) is just around the corner which has some great restaurants and a real European feel, Darlinghurst is wall to wall of cafes, bars and restaurants to suite all tastes and budgets, Woolloomooloo marina is at the bottom of the hill with its ritzy restaurants and famous residents (Russell Crow has the penthouse at end of wharf) it is beautiful to hang out on a nice evening, The Australian Museum and The Art Gallery of NSW have both interesting exhibitions and evening events, The Bridge can be seen from my corner and the Opera House is a pleasant stroll through the Botanical Gardens and Domain, Chinatown and Darling Harbour are just at the back of the CBD and Sydney colourful nightlife of both Kings Cross & Oxford St are on your doorstep. I also have lots of more information on things to do while in Sydney just ask me.
If walking is not your thing are really well serviced for public transport with a bus stop almost outside of door that takes you into the CBD and beyond and Bondi Beach in the other direction. The Town Hall train station is a comfortable walk and this station is one of the main connector stations for all lines, plus the airport is a quick 20mins away by cab or the Airport Shuttle bus which picks up outside my door.

You would be staying with me and my very cute, house trained small dog Charlie he is a 9 years old Pomeranian, does not shed and is very friendly.
I am originally Scottish and have made Sydney my home for the last 13 years; I am well travelled, enjoy travelling, meeting new people and exploring new places and do believe that there is no better way to get to know a place that through the locals who live there (adopted or not). I am open minded, have respect for all people and value differences and look for the same understanding in return. I am no longer a youngster but still young at heart and enjoy going out and experience all the great restaurants, bars, clubs and events that Sydney has to offer. I do entertain at home sometime but would not describe this as a 'party house'.

Note: The apartment is on the top floor with 4 flights of stairs to walk and there is NO lift, it is great for working out your legs but not really suitable for anyone with mobility/fitness challenges, also the apartment is not really suitable for a young child.

If you want to want more information or have a burning question please message me and I will endeavour to come back to you within 24hrs.

Sehr schöne Unterkunft für 2, ziemlich zentral gelegen. Mit Bus/Bahn ist alles Sehenswerte in kurzer Zeit zu erreichen. Morag hat ziemlich viele Infos ausliegen und hilft auch gerne. Leider grenzt die Williamsstreet an, und dort herrscht die ganze Nacht ziemlicher Verkehr, auf das sollte man gefasst sein.

l appartamento si trova a pochi passi dal centro in ottima posizione ed è spazioso e confortevole..Morag è una persona disponibile e mette a disposizione tutto .. caffè e tutti li attrezzi della cucina ..
il cane che li fa compagnia è troppo curioso simpatico e non da mai fastidio .
consiglio l appartamento sia alle coppie che a gruppi di amici in quanto è comodo e in posizione strategica .

+ we really liked the room, it was large and bright with a little balcony
+ Morag made us her own bread or muffins for breakfast daily
+ apartment is REALLY close to the city center - 15 to 20 mins walk to the Opera House
+ if you like to be on your own - Morag wasn't home much
+ if you like dogs you'll love her little one Charly :-)

- Darlinghurst isn't the best district - we had some "interesting characters" outside the house in the nights (not that anyone would harm you, but you just gotta know)
- the apartment wasn't perfectly clean
- if that's a problem to you: there are cockroaches in the apartment (they don't do anything, but they are still there)
- we didn't see Morag much and she would really try to give us privacy - that also means she sometimes didn't have time to chat or help us with something

All in all it was a nice stay, especially so close to everything - still we think there could be some improvements for that price.

Morag was an excellent host. The room was bright and quite large with a balcony to the street. As Williams st is nearby there is 24h some traffic noise. Stairs are easy.
Location is excellent, CBD and Opera house as wall as Darling harbour 20-30 min walk only. Good café and restaurant neighborhood.

Nice Apartment straight in the heart of Sydney. All balconies offers you a good look to the Skyline and City. It's a 10 minutes walk to the next train station (Kings Cross). - That is really ok.

If you are looking for a good room in this city, it's perfect for you.

Die Lage ist gut und man kann zu Fuß Sydney gut entdecken. Zimmer war okay, über die Aussicht kann ich nicht viel sagen. Waren meist unterwegs. Unsere Gastgeberin haben wir nicht viel gesehen. Sie hat einen kleinen Hund den wir mehr gesehen haben. Es gibt viele Informationen in allen Sprachen im Zimmer. WLan kostenfrei nutzbar, Zimmer war großzügig, Bad eher klein, Ausreichend Schränke vorhanden. Sauberkeit so la la.

Staying with Morag is the perfect place to stay. It's a very lovely place and you almost you Night almost feel at home. All the places you want to visit - either Botanic Garden, Sydney Opera or CBD - are within walk distance. And also in Darlinghurst you have lots of places to discover. I would highly reommend if you are visiting Sydney to stay with Morag.
