Other things to note
This is our home, not a hotel: so there will almost certainly be some clothes in the wardrobes, some food in the fridge and some stains on the carpet! If you are the kind of person who will be upset if "there are someone else's breadcrumbs in the toaster", then this listing is not for you!
Nor is this the right place for you if you prefer something generic, modern and hotel-standard clean, over character, location and style.
Check in 3 pm, check out 11 am (negotiable)
No smoking inside.
Shoes off policy.
THIS IS NOT A PARTY HOUSE! (Our caretaker lives in the apartment below, so please no music or excessive noise after 12 am).
More detailed information will be available once you book in the House Manual section of the listing.

I work as a barrister in Melbourne. My wife Madeleine works as a psychotherapist, and is also currently doing a doctorate in psychology. We live in a lovely house in the bayside suburb of St Kilda with our sons Carlos (aged 13) and Jerome (aged 8), who both go to school around the corner. We also have several adult children from our first marriages. We have a beach house in Lorne where we love to get away. We take good care of things, and will take good care of your home!
