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.

The space

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!

Daniel's place was the perfect choice for my 3-month stay in Melbourne. The place was clean and well provided for (washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, etc.). Daniel does not live there, but is reachable at all moments and very responsive. Note that the house is in an extremely quiet and silent area, which was exactly what I was looking for. My balcony oversaw the Merry creek, and I could wake up every morning to the birds' songs. The Merry creek trail is also a beautiful walk or bike ride to the center. Tram lines 1 and 6 are at 5 min. walking distance, so the city center is ~30 min away overall. A large supermarket is also at 5 min walking distance. Will definitely check in again whenever I'm back to Melbourne :-) Thanks, Daniel!

I had a really good time in this house!! Becci and Dan are so kind, thoughtful,and peaceful people:) I like talking with house mates as well! They are also nice people:) I saw beautiful blue sky, sunrise, stars, and the moon every day:) from this room. It was quite nice:) In the kitchen, Dan's mother brought beautiful flowers from her garden:) It made me happy as well:) I also stayed Deluxe bedroom. It was very big for one person. It was nice as well. I really enjoy staying this house. If I have a chance to come back Melbourne, I would like to stay again.

It was really nice to have a whole modern house to share. The kitchen was nice and pretty spacious. The balconies were great, especially the one next to the room - very sunny. The room has a big wardrobe, but is not that big itself. However there is enough space for one person. Also the creek next to the house is perfect for a walk or cycle - the path goes pretty far to explore. The bathroom is shared with 2 other people and the house - except the rooms - gets cleaned once a week. It was a really nice stay!

I was welcomed with a much needed cup of tea and lively chat when I arrived in this gem of a place! My hosts are very warm and provided clear, useful instructions and information. The room is exactly as described and the house in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood. I couldn't recommend this accommodation highly enough: absolutely marvelous.the
