A beautiful 1920s brick house one minute's walk to cafes and trams going past Melbourne Zoo and Victoria Market, with Brunswick cafe culture a stroll away. Enjoy a spacious room with bay window and a sunny back garden.

The space

Welcome to our generous single-storey (3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom) house, art deco stylings circa 1920. Indulge in Brunswick's cafe culture, take the tram out your front door to Melbourne Zoo, Royal Park, or Victoria Market, or just languish with the magnificent weeping elm out the front.

The room offers high ceilings, a ceiling fan for hotter days, and a sturdy fold-out sofabed, comfortable for two. Bedding is available for a third person with a small extra charge.

We are on a convenient street, bordering nearby Melville Rd. Cafes, takeaways and a small supermarket are just around the corner, and two minutes' tram ride takes you to the Union Square shopping precinct.

Brunswick West is a Melbourne suburb 6km north of the CBD, and a lovely quiet spot in the greater Brunswick precinct. 15 minutes' walk or 3 on the bus gets you to hip shopping, cafes, and all sorts of odds and sods on Sydney Rd. 5 minutes' drive gets you onto the Citylink, with another twenty minutes to Melbourne Airport - perfect if you're flying in.

Getting around is easy - two buses and a tram line past the zoo and into the CBD are a minute's walk away. The nearest train station (Brunswick) is about a 15 minute walk, but a brief trip on the tram brings you directly to Royal Park Station.

Guest access

You will have access to the majority of the house, including the kitchen, living room, both bathrooms, and the backyard. Make yourselves at home.

Interaction with guests

While we'll be out a fair bit of the time, it is a live-in residence. Advice and recommendations is up for offer should you need it.

Other things to note

Allergy suffers should bear in mind we have both cats and chickens.

We lived six days in the room and had a very good time! The room was great and comfortable. Everything was clean, our own bathroom was good. Sue is a lovely person. The breakfast was good and the two cats were cute! Also the internet worked good. All in all we had a wonderful time. We would definetely come back when we are back in Melbourne :-)

Sue is a lovely host! Everything was perfect, the room is nice, the bed is comfortable, breakfast ready every morning (with fresh eggs available form her hens) with the occasional company of two sweet cats or Sue in person. She's always ready to give you some advice about Melbourne and her home is in the perfect location if you're not too interested in partying at night - it might get a little bit harder to reach the place after a certain hour. All in all, we had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to everyone! Thank you, Sue!!

Sue User ProfileSue is a superhost.

A self confessed classical music tragic, I live for music, art and cats! In life, I love the journey rather than the destination. As a musician I have travelled Australia extensively and know the country pretty well. When I travel it's to experience, taste, laugh, listen, live and work rather than look at stuff. As a host, my house is yours and I want to know why you have arrived in this beautiful city to help you make the most of your time here. I am passionate about caring for the environment and have solar panels for energy needs and chooks to minimize any household food wastage. I love food but like to leave the car at home when possible so live near the tram that takes you to the amazing Victoria market.
