Getting there from the UK

If you have made the choice to travel to Australia, it is always a good idea to book your ticket far in advance in order to avoid inflated ticket prices. The flight is more than twenty hours from the UK and although you can purchase a direct flight, many airlines will give you a stop over in another country. This will allow you to break up the flight time a little.

On arrival in Sydney there are a few options you can take in order to get to your accommodation in Darlinghurst. Public transport is more common amongst locals who know their way around the city, and can be exhausting for travellers booking a holiday appartment especially if it is their first time in the country. In order to get to Darlinghurst from the Airport using public transport, it is necessary to take a train to Museum station, and then a bus which will take you directly there. Depending on the bus and train times, this can take only around twenty five minutes.

Another option would be to catch a taxi from the Airport, and they are always abundant. If not, a driver can be arranged for often a reasonable price, and you would arrive at your holiday destination in around twenty minutes.

Access to the master bedroom was via a narrow spiral staircase; not an issue for us but charming. Location is convenient to all. Car park in the rear is a plus but only for a small vehicle (smaller than a Masda 3). Although we arrived late (8 PM) the keys were easily accessible. Overall a very good experience!

Pictures don't do this place justice - it's a gorgeous apartment with a view out over the city from the bedroom and from the shared patio area on top of the building. Great value per night compared to other vacation rentals in this area of Sydney, and such close proximity to the CBD. The kitchen was well-equipped, free wifi available, washer & dryer in the apartment, and an extra twin bed was supplied (we were 1 couple and 1 single friend traveling together). Lots of terrific local bistros and coffee shops to sample. Getting anywhere else in the city was easy without a car: Hyde Park, with bus connections and the Museum train station, is less than a 10-minute walk away, as are the King's Cross and Surry Hills neighborhoods. Central Station with connections to the Blue Mountains and elsewhere is around a 15 minute walk. Some considerations: we thought this was a 1-bedroom apartment based on the pictures, but it's actually a large studio - probably best for a couple rather than a group, if you want privacy! Also, there's no elevator in the building and 7 flights of stairs to climb. We got plenty of exercise on this trip. We'd recommend against a car based on our experience - limited parking in the neighborhood, and you don't really need it with Sydney's excellent public transport so close. We did have some confusion setting up pickup and drop off of the apartment keys at the beginning and end of our stay, but the local management company, MadeComfy, was very responsive and sorted it out with us quickly both times. We would definitely stay here again!
