Our quiet upstairs guest room is a comfortable place to relax, a short walk to many great parks, cafes, restaurants and music venues. The Yarra River bike paths are nearby and it's very quick to get to the city by train or bus. We provide tea and coffee making facilities in your room as well as your own TV.

The space

Our two storey, three bedroom townhouse is a comfortable place to relax with easy bus or train options to the city. The guest bedroom has a queen sized bed, plenty of wardrobe space, adjacent toilet and access to a separate bathroom. There is a TV in the room so if you don't feel like socialising you can just relax with some screen time.
The courtyard is a relaxing place to kick back with a coffee and a book.
The street is quiet but the train is a 5 minute walk and a bus to the city passes the end of the street.
Ours is the perfect place to be close to the CBD, Northcote, Fairfield, Carlton and Fitzroy but far enough away to be able to really chill out and enjoy some space.
Station St Fairfield, a short walk away has many cafes and numerous restaurants including Greek, Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese and Thai.
Cyclists can choose many directions to take bike paths all over the city. We are happy to provide suggestions for cycling and resources to help plan your ride.

Guest access

Your bedroom is adjacent to a separate toilet and you will have your own bathroom downstairs.

Interaction with guests

We like to get to know our guests but assure them of respectful privacy, as we assume from them. All of our guests come and go with their own key at whatever hours suit their individual schedules and this works for us.

Kathy and Alan have an attractive and extremely comfortable home in a very quiet street in Alphington, a suburb which I hadn't been to before but was immediately charmed by with it's clear signs of community. It's very easy to get to and from the city by train and there are buses very close by which cross the northern suburbs and connect to other train and tram lines. Communication with Kathy was prompt and clear and in meeting them both they put you at ease immediately. Everything in the house from the bathroom facilities to kitchen appliances is to a high standard and there was very nice selection of breakfast ingredients, teas and coffee. I would emphatically recommend staying with Kathy and Alan, you will feel welcome and relaxed in their home.

A very welcoming family home with very friendly and helpful hosts. The property is a short walk from a train station which takes you straight to the heart of Melbourne. There are shops and restaurants nearby and a lovely park about 20 minutes walk away. We would stay there again.

My partner Allan and myself love to travel and meet locals when we do. We spent from April to September 2016 travelling in Europe and Asia, meeting many lovely Airbnb hosts in countries as diverse as France, Ireland, Croatia, Turkey, Italy, Greece and Sri Lanka. We are now home…
