Historic seaport of Williamstown. This comfortable, beautifully decorated, former blacksmith's cottage, a few minutes walk from stunning Melbourne city skyline views across Port Phillip Bay, has one bedroom with queen size bed, plus a comfortable double sofa bed in the living room. It sleeps four people. Parks and water views are at the end of the street.
Originally a blacksmith's cottage, built in 1915, the house has been extensively renovated. Ducted heating warms all rooms and air conditioning connects to the open plan living and dining area. The spacious, modern kitchen has a dishwasher, stainless steel appliances and white caesarstone benches, as well as everything you need to create delicious meals at home. The combined bathroom/laundry is compact. It has a large shower and a front loading washing machine. Good quality linens and towels are available for your stay. There's a small side outdoor deck for morning coffees, where smoking is permitted as well as a pretty rear, north-facing courtyard with all day sunshine. The front of the house has off-street parking. Unrestricted parking is also available on the street. Unlimited internet and national calls to Australian landlines are included. Sorry, the house is not suitable for children.
The entire house is available for guest use, except for some wardrobe space and cupboards storing my things. One bedroom is locked for my personal use. Separate wardrobe and cupboard spaces are available for guests. The kitchen is well stocked with appliances and utensils and there's a large cupboard for groceries.

I'm a travelling photographic artist and former teacher from Melbourne, Australia. I've lived for long periods in France and in Mexico. Here in Williamstown, I live a few minutes from the water and 15 minutes by car from Melbourne city centre. I travel to learn more about the world and its people. I love anything to do with art, history and travel.
