Claire's place is perfect for extended stays in Melbourne Elwood,close to St Kilda, the beach a variety of shops and restaurants a short walk away.Hame has A/c and heating and is simple to control and very efficient.A lovely courtyard to the rear which is a great sun trap and private for sitting and soaking up the sun. All in all a great place to stay,we couldn't have picked better. Mark,Stephanie and Lucy from Rochdale UK

Very hard to think of a way that our stay at Claire's place in Elwood could be improved or bettered. We stayed for four days and could have been happy there for much longer. The place is spacious, comfortable and beautifully equipped, and Claire was the most perfect and generous host. Great supplies in the fridge when we arrived, and we felt immediately at home. She was always available and helpful on email. Elwood is a quiet residential suburb, and the house is near the beach (an easy walk to St Kilda) and a short walk to Elsternwick train station, which gets you quickly into the middle of town. Cafes and shops abound nearby, and check out the classic cinema opposite the train station. Really can't recommend highly enough. Simon and Justine

Claire's home in Elwood was a delight to stay in. Not only was it a great location (lot of shops, bars and cafe's within easy walking distance), it is a beautiful home to relax inside and out. A delightful garden and very comfortable home all around. Transport is also very easy with buses, trains and trams all within easy walking distance. Claire was very welcoming and informative, and there was everything in the home to make for a comfortable stay. Thank you Claire for being so helpful and obliging. I will definitely stay again when in Melbourne.

We are so happy we found this little gem. It is in a fantastic location walking distance to shops, train and a big park perfect for our kids. The house was so warm and comfortable and it had everything we needed. We particularly liked the fully fenced yard/front gate so we were never worried about our kids escaping onto the busy road. Claire was such a pleasure to deal with we felt really welcome from the moment we made the booking. We will definitely stay again on any future trips to Melbourne.

I love the Elwood area and will never leave it because it has a beautiful village atmosphere, whilst being walking distance from the buzz of St Kilda. A haven of activities for kids and adults alike (see the map attached to this booking for my recommendations)

I will be happy to help out with local advice to make your stay here as full of fun as possible.
