I fell in love with this grand old Terrace Home. The moment I stepped inside and saw my family already settled in I knew I'd made the right decision when I chose it almost one year ago. Jeremy has been a delight, as are the neighbors on either side and one door down. The Rusty Rabbit was a go to almost every day, especially by my four teenaged grandkids. The attic bedroom was perfect for the three boys aged 15 15 and 18. Sue and Ella enjoyed the small room on the 2.5 level. Sean revealed in the master bedroom because the twin mattress was just not thick enough for floor sleeping and he chose to sleep on the sofa instead. Bill and I took the smallest room which offered a little porch with table that I enjoyed. The one suggestion I have is that a dresser with drawers would make it much easier than living out of suitcases on the floor. (I didn't see the clothes rack on the porch until well into the stay and when I did, I saw no hangers. So we continued to live out of the suitcases. Having the washer and dryer made it less of a task than it could have been and we loved and used them daily. The wonderfully appointed kitchen, the living room with large tv and ample seating, and dining room with the wonderful table that seated all 9 of us was the hub of our stay. In its entirety, this house provides everything we could have needed or desired. Except for the tiny mosquitos that left a few of us itching huge welts. A trip to Aldi's solved the problem. Bug spray, itch cream and cut lemons rubbed on the bites kept us comfy. The staircase, the fireplace, the decorative details in the plaster all were charming. I watched the plant on the front porch go from tight bud to fully opened bloom. We made coffee (love your thick cream), thick raisin toast with butter and fig jam, had boxes of cereal and fruits lined up on the sink and kept the fridge filled with foods not seen in the states. We appreciated the seasonings and things in the cupboard. We bought dish soap and toilet tissue as needed (our group was large and we happily did that) but your shampoos etc. lasted thru our stay. Our stay was delightful! In so many ways. Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts. The Simko and Mannos families. (P.S. You might want to check for a sewer smell that occasionally permeated the downstairs bathroom.) Bobbie Simko
All we expected
Would definitely recommend
Great location and property
Location, Location, Location
Fantastic quiet location but could do with a bit of a spruce up and a good clean.
Thanks Igor - we are currently organising a complete paint through internally plus deep clean and refurbishment. Watch for new photos and descriptions.
One of our challenges has been the fact that this super popular listing is booked almost continually so getting in to do the work has been a challenge due to advance bookings.
We believe the house is currently outstanding value for money and our professional cleaners do a great job but a thorough refreshing is taking it to another level of beauty and finish.
Your feedback is valued and will be used to inspire and underline the above undertakings that are currently being implemented.
Darlinghurst - The Stately Terrace
The location of this property is superb - close to City Surry Hills Oxford Street and Kings cross. You can walk to various venues and the buses from Oxford street excellent. Five of us stayed at the property. We enjoyed the amenities the property provided.
