Amal is a cosy apartment, conveniently located in North Melbourne. Avoid the bustle of the city centre, but still be close enough to enjoy the benefits of central living. Close by to expansive parks, the Melbourne Zoo, and only a few tram stops away from a wealth of dining options, Amal is a perfect launching pad for the whole city. Although snug, this apartment is great for singles, couples or business travellers! Please note the apartment complex was built in the late 1970's.

Snug little one bedder easy walking distance to everything and with great public transport. Loved out stay here, but definitely not one if you want to entertain while in Melb, as when it says it is small, it is small. Great for a couple or single who need a place.

Functional place to stay in a nice residential neighborhood. Apartment is small, and a little more air circulation would have been nice, but it all works fine, if you aren't planning to spend too much time in the apartment. The garden entrance is quite pretty. Convenient to tram, if you are headed to the CBD; about a 10-minute walk to the train if you're headed further afield, but there's nice coffee and breakfast on the way to the train station. The neighborhood is nice for a walk (and for a run in the park).

Linton's place is so clean, cosy and affordable. Great location, city close by, easy walk to shops, tram and Melbourne zoo. Linton was very helpful during our stay in Melbourne. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Fantastic location next to trams, buses, shops and takeaways and only a 25 minute walk from the zoo, great base for a few days in Melbourne!

I’m an entrepreneur, architecture graduate, photographer, cyclist (NOT the lycra kind), volunteer, adventurer and problem solver.

During my studies I worked at various cafes and architecture offices to save up for shoestring trips around the world. My grandma once told me I had ‘champagne taste but a beer budget’ and it’s a motto I’ve enjoyed applying to different parts of my life to get the more out of less and find enjoyment in the little things.

I love discovering authentic experiences when I travel and I love being able to share the opportunity with others, to live like a local when they travel too.

Some of my most memorable trips have been couch-surfin across Russia while taking the Trans Siberian, living in Helsinki and learning to hand build furniture, riding a vintage steel bicycle through France to race in L’Eroica and buying a car on craigzlist in Los Angeles and driving across the south, east and north coasts to arrive in Vancouver.

My listings are all managed by Beyond a Room and are all given names that I think reflect the character of the property and area. My aim is to give guests a unique and local perspective on the location and share my knowledge and experience of this wonderful city with travellers so that they feel at home. Search Beyond a Room to find out more about how we can help manage your airbnb.

I try to keep all my calendars up to date so if it’s available in the calendar, you can usually just go ahead and book ☺
