Large, sunny room in a big house along the bay, just a short walk to beautiful, uncrowded Seaford beach, one of Melbourne's best. Close to train and freeway, just 50 mins to city. Several nearby walking tracks along beach, creek and reserves.

The space

The back yard is verdant and relaxing, and the house is light-filled, spacious and open, with a friendly feel. We live in a quiet street with friendly neighbours all round.
We have access to shops and local amenities, as well as beaches, reserves and wetlands.

Guest access

Bathroom, kitchen/dining area, living area, back yard.

Interaction with guests

Guests share the house with us, but we respect their privacy. Guests can interact with us as much as they feel comfortable.
We do expect openness and friendly interaction from our visitors though. We offer as much and always hope for the same.
Space is respected always, for all.

Other things to note

We do have a part time smoker living here but smoking takes place outdoors.
Be aware we have a cat and a bird, so if you are allergic or just don't like animals, then this isn't the place for you.
It is an old house with one toilet. We just had major work done on the plumbing though so there shouldn't be any dramas. Really!

Chris and Jody were fantastic. They have very relaxed easy going personalities that will make you feel comfortable. With an artist and musician in the house their home is wonderfully eclectic with a lot of interesting items. Highly recommended.

Chris and Jody are wonderful hosts, relaxed and easygoing, immediately made me feel at home. the room is large, well furnished, very comfy bed all the linens and such you need. And quiet - i am a very light sleeper, no worries here. really a great place to stay. 5 stars are not enough, but it's the most i can give!

I received a warm welcome and I was delighted to be offered a cuppa when I arrived, and all through my stay Chris and Jo went above and beyond to make my stay comfortable and easy. I loved the very spacious room and the location was great - close to the beach and the train station. I really enjoyed my stay which was a wonderful homely, friendly airbnb experience.

I really enjoyed my stay at Jody and Chris's place. It was really easy to be there - I felt at home and welcome from when I arrived. Jody and Chris were friendly and interesting and very easy to converse with. My room was clean and comfortable and I had as much privacy or conversation as I desired.

I absolutely loved my time with Chris and Jody. They were both so warm and hospitable and made me really feel like the place was my home too. I loved sitting around the table talking eating and laughing together. Everything was clean and I also appreciate how generous they were with sharing their food with me. I look forward to staying there again some day.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay with Chris and Jody. They always went out of their way to make me very welcome and were generous in many wonderful ways. I also enjoyed being near the sea, yet still able to be in the centre of Melbourne in only 45 minutes. Their home is a sanctuary which I miss and which I have no hesitation in recommending to others.

Jody & Chris User Profile

Chris (on the right in profile pic) is a musician and lecturer, with a particular interest in traditional West African music. Jody is a taxidermist with history in theatre and visual arts. We moved from inner city Melbourne to live beach side 14 years ago. We share the property with a cat and a cockatiel. The chickens next door visit occasionally, as do our lovely neighbours!

We both like many different kinds of music, as long as it's good! Our interests are diverse; science and nature, environmental issues, human behaviour, Nordic Thrillers, subversive cartoons, good comedy, anything slightly left of centre I guess.

We both like higher-end television: ABC, BBC, SBS, HBO, Showtime, etc., anything intelligent and well-written.

Our lifestyle is not regulated by 9 to 5 routine. We are both easy going, and the house is a comfortable and casual environment.
