Our recently completed 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom light-filled townhouse is available as your home away from home while we're on vacation.

Nestled in the beautiful tree-lined streets of South Preston, you will be able to take advantage of the proximity to the City/MCG (20 minutes via train) or explore the cafes, restaurants and parklands of Melbourne's hip inner north.

We love our neighbourhood and we hope you will too!

The space

The townhouse is fully furnished -contemporary tones meets mid-century modernism. We have a fully equipped kitchen with gas stoves and a dishwasher, a state-of-the-art BBQ, a built-in French laundry, a big screen TV with Netflix and PlayStation 4 (for the gamers), broadband Wi-Fi and a cute garden courtyard where you can catch some sun. Air conditioning is available for some of the warmer/cooler days, and the house comes with a free parking spot as well.

Other things to note

The house would most comfortably suit four people, though our couch can double as a bed for a fifth person if necessary.

- 1 queen bed (sleeps 2)
- 1 day bed that folds out to a double bed (sleeps 2)
- Also: 1 L-shaped lounge if required (sleeps 1)

As we have only recently moved in, there are no curtains yet on the windows. The house is very private, but something to consider if you're sensitive to light in the mornings!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at your place in Melbourne and would definitely stay here again. The place was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was well equipped and the bathroom generous with space and spotless. Although very convenient for public transport and shops, it was also very quiet and relaxing. We loved the decor and really felt at home.

We loved the location just a short walk to High Street with an array of cafes and restaurants to choose from. The house has everything you need and a well equipped kitchen, comfortable, warm and plenty of light. We appreciated all the useful information Philip and Camden gave us about the area. We would definitely stay again.

It was a great place to stay. Close to public transport and the hosts have full trust on their residents. The place is clean and tidy. It is very convenient in term of its location. The host is pretty quick in responding to our request. Suitable for 3 people to stay.

Excellent ! We stayed in 4 airbnb just in Melbourne area and this is the place with the best value. Recommended for family given the 2 parks nearby, the quiet neighborhood and the proximity to the shops and public transports. The house is brand new and well furnished. We had a great stay.

Thanks Cam and Phil! They are helpful and reply very fast! The townhouse is quiet, new and clean. Not that big but perfect for 2-4 people. Tram stop, aldi, Woolworth are all very close (about 5 min walking), train station is about 10 min walking. Cam and Phil will give lots of helpful information

I grew up on a plane, work in social research and now live with my partner in Melbourne. :)

In our spare time, we enjoy weekend hikes, visiting galleries, eating unhealthy things (sometimes) and playing video games (don't judge).

We also love exploring the world, meeting new people and sharing a slice of our little city!
