This is a beautiful and incredibly comfortable house which had everything we needed for a month-long stay. Emily was a friendly and helpful host and she and her relatives were easy to get in touch with during our stay. The street and local area are lovely, with plenty of nearby shops, restaurants, bars and public transport options.

This place exceeded our expectations. The host generously supplied a bowl of Turkish delight as well as breakfast supplies and made up an extra bed for us on the couch. The house is clean and homely, and the shower is lush! I'd definitely stay here again.

Emily, Richie, and Lionel were incredibly welcoming! They were accommodating to our check in and check out times. They gave us privacy but were also up for a chat during our down times. The location is super convenient - close to train station and tram stops. However, we found ourselves walking around the shops about 5-10 minutes walk from their home almost everyday when we were there. The home is beautifully decorated, and kept very clean. All in all a great experience living in their home.

We have used Airbnb a lot recently and this it the best place we have stayed. And the best hosts (and a great dog!). The room is comfy, clean and spacious with great wi-fi. In a beautiful home. The hosts are great very welcoming and full of useful information. The location is perfect. Right next to the metro, with a short ride into the centre of Melbourne.

Emily and her husband were wonderful hosts; very flexible around arrival time and warm and welcoming. Tea and coffee were offered on arrival and again for breakfast. They welcomed our 2yo daughter and were good company! Lovely and clean place. Comfortable double bed. They have a friendly in-house dog. Toilet is at the other end of the house to bedroom. If you love the inner north of Melbourne, this is a great location.

I have lived and worked in the beautiful city of Melbourne for most of my life and love to travel as often as I can fit it in! Recent trips have been to the US and Canada, Borneo and Cambodia. My husband and I have had great experiences with Airbnb and we're excited to be able to…
