Welcome to Melbourne! We have a lovely furnished room with a large private balcony overlooking the Merri Creek available in our beautiful, colourful & peaceful home.
Enjoy a warm, homely-home with a calm Zen-vibe where you can relax close to nature.
Your room is fully furnished with a double bed futon, heater, fan, desk, lamp and built in wardrobe. The Balcony room also has a private balcony overlooking the tops of the eucalypt trees. Enjoy the fresh air, sunshine and peaceful sounds of the creek and native birds from the privacy of your own room. Guests share a private bathroom.
Our home overlooks the Merri Creek and bushlands, so it is very green and lush! We live in a very quiet street so you can relax here with just the sounds of the creek and the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)s and the native birds. The creek has a lovely walking track through the bush which is great for jogging, walking and bike riding. You can also ride your bike all the way to the city along the creek bike path - a great way to get into the city!
We are close to the city central, as well as Melbourne University and RMIT University (15-25 min on the number 1 tram line that goes down Lygon St / Swanston St). We are a 2 min walk to our local tram stop. We live in a very safe area with lots of families and children.
There is a large IGA supermarket within 2 min walk from our home. There is a local organic outdoor farmers market held at an urban farm (CERES Environment Park) that is 10 min walk along the creek. The market is on Wed-Sat 9am-1pm. On Saturdays, the market is very large and has live folk music and a crafts/clothing market. You can walk there from our place along the creek. A great place to buy your organic fruit and veg!
We have 3 other rooms that we rent out so there may be other guests staying in other rooms at the same time. Our previous guests have loved meeting new people from all over the world while they have stayed here.
If you are interested please tell us a little about yourself, such as what you will be doing in Melbourne, your interests and how long you plan to be in Melbourne etc.
We look forward to welcoming you!
