Great place to stay for short or longer visits. So conveniently close to transport and the city. Extremely comfortable (bed is great) and Elaine is a wonderful host.

My partner and I have just spent a month at Geoff and Elaine's, and it was perfect for what we needed. A stones throw from the train station which made my daily commute to Greensborough a lot less hassle, but noise from the trains was never an issue. Lovely quiet, comfy and cosy apartment. Thank you so much Geoff and Elaine for having us! We'll definitely be booking again if we are ever back in the area!!

Geoff and Elaine were there to greet us when we arrived which made check-in simple. The apartment was exactly as described. The outlook was pleasant and it was surprisingly quiet considering how close to major Street and rail it was. You could hear the trains but we didn't find it a problem and being so close to the station was great for getting about. We would definitely stay again.

I enjoyed staying there as the location was good and handy to CBD. Also near the Vietnamese eatery on Victoria road. The place was neat and tidy and had everything I needed for a long stay. The host - Elaine was very nice and friendly and caring. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone looking for accommodation in Melbourne short or long stay.

Response from Geoff And Elaine:
It was a delight to meet Noriko in Richmond and to enjoy a coffee and a chat. Noriko is outgoing and very easy to get along with. We are pleased that she has now settled into her new abode! Our apartment was left in excellent condition and we would be happy to recommend Noriko for any other Airbnb stay. Elaine & Geoff

Elaine & Geoff met me at the property promptly when I arrived. They were very friendly and welcoming and helped with my luggage. They showed me round the flat and even showed me where two pubs were where I could get a meal as it was late in the evening. The flat was great. I stayed a month when I emigrated and it was an ideal base for this as it was close to town, trams and trains. The laundry was useful and I could hang my washing to dry in the secure communal areas. I did this 4 times and none of it got pinched. The place served it's purpose for me.

Hi Michael, Thanks for your positive review. Glad you found the apartment great! We do too! Whoops, sorry about the pegs. I will definitely remedy that ASAP. You never know, we may catch up with you at "The Kingston" at some stage! Good luck for your future in Melbourne. Cheers, Elaine & Geoff
