About this listing

Gateway to Melbourne city and the Exhibition Buildings, Carlton Gardens, Melbourne Museum, iconic Brunswick Street shopping precinct, Melbourne University and St Vincent's Hospital. I am a friendly, fluent French speaker. The house is a quiet, clean, bright terrace with period features. Your bed has a wool overlay, and ironed cotton and bamboo linen. My three bedroom, two storey home has one human occupant, as well as one shy cat, and one well mannered dog. There is unlimited street parking.

The space

The room is large and freshly painted. Your linen is bamboo and cotton. Your mattress is comfortable select-o-pedic with a wool overlay. The house is a clean, classic terrace, with lovely features that I am currently in the process of upgrading. The area is a gateway to the city, and entertainment hot spots, but is quiet, as the house is located in a one way street with only around 8 houses. Features include exposed red brick walls, antique lights, wooden ceilings in many rooms, original wooden staircase, shiny concrete floor downstairs, and original wood floorboards upstairs. It is well lit with large feature windows, and the back section of the kitchen in glass. My dog "Moon" is a favorite with guests, and you will find her very loving.

Guest access

There is unlimited parking in the street outside with my guest permit. Guests have a private room with lockable door. Your bedroom is the only bedroom on the ground floor, which also houses the kitchen and bathroom. The one other occupant has two rooms upstairs. Your bedroom is accessed off the entry corridor, so your entry is semi-private. You can share the courtyard, the kitchen, as well as washer/dryer. There is another room for rent at this residence, for a maximum of 1 person.

Interaction with guests

I am friendly, and available to help guests through your stay and make your stay with me as pleasant as possible. I generally check in with guests every day. I am hosting air b and b as a part time occupation, so you will find you are well looked after. I can point you to the local hotspots for socialising and eating, including my favorites. At times I like to socialise with guests. I look forward to seeing you.

Other things to note

I speak and write fluent French, having lived in Paris for 6 months. I welcome all French speakers. Coffee and tea is available all day long. Breakfast is unlimited toast and condiments, and is also found in cafes just around the corner. Earplugs are not necessary, but provided. My dog "Moon" is a favorite with locals, and you will find her very loving if you are interested in interacting with her. I rescued Moon from a shelter when she was a puppy. I also have a shy cat named "Tricksen", due to her tricky personality!

This is amazing place. It is quiet and warm house located next to CBD so it would be easy to explore the city. Staying here was a wonderful opportunity for us to feel the Melbourne's vibes.

Very cosy and convenient location, full of great night life. Lisa is a very hospitable and accommodating person. It was our first time using airbnb and it was quite the experience. Lisa walked us through everything and made everything very clear for us to understand.

Lisa is a wonderful host and I found the room to be charming and perfect for my stay. I was a little worried about noise in the neighbourhood at night (given the proximity to some fabulous wine bars and restaurants in Fitzroy) but was pleasantly surprised as there was absolutely no noise during my 5 night stay and I slept like a baby. Thanks again Lisa for your warm welcome and I hope to stay with you again!

We had a very pleasant experience staying at Lisa's while visiting Melbourne. Her home is clean and tidy, the bedroom is spacious and very welcoming, and the bed is incredibly comfortable. The house is within 10 minutes walking distance of amazing restaurants, the museum and cool stores, and very close to the city. Lisa herself is really friendly and helpful, and Moon dog is the icing on the cake. Overall, this was the perfect first Air Bnb experience.
