Helen's apt was perfect for our one-week stay. It is 10 minutes away from the city centre via tram 86, 10-minute walk to the vibrant lively Brunswick St, is near to 2 supermarkets (Woolsworth, Coles) and the popular ice-cream parlour Messina. Endless cafe options in the hood. The apt was clean, adequate and accurate to description. Helen was welcoming, checks in with us whenever we meet, and always gives us our space and privacy. Though we didn't get to use the kitchen but Helen was kind enough to open it to us. Definitely an apt you'd want to consider!

I stayed two nights at Helen's apartment. My space was spotless, comfortable bed with beautiful linen, and very quiet, even though so close to Smith Street. I met Helen briefly and she was very welcoming. I would recommend anyone to stay at Helen's apartment.

Helen's home was the perfect place, and she herself the perfect host, for us . A fabulous location close to cafes and transport, walking distance to the city but very quiet. Comfortable bed, quality sheets and towels and our own sitting room, balcony and bathroom - as well as access to a good kitchen, living area and lovely sunny courtyard. Helen's communication was great so despite some hiccups with the Airbnb site in the booking process I felt confident she would keep the space for us. I also very much enjoyed meeting Helen - an interesting and charming person, warm and welcoming and willing to engage without ever being intrusive. I will certainly be asking to stay again when next I need Airbnb in Melbourne.

Helen's apartment is amazing! She was very flexible in my check in time. Helen is a happy and bubble person and is interested in why you are staying in Melbourne.

I have worked in theatre all my life and now run a small theatre company which produces two shows a year. We specialise in the classics, ancient and modern and a bit of everything else.
I work in the downstairs study and my apartment is on the top floor. Guests have their own apartment on the first floor and we share the kitchen and lounge and entrance. I love books and theatre and the cafes and galleries all around me and love sharing them with guests. The house is very quiet, in a cul-de sac just behind the main drag and on the doorstep of the CBD
