We are a yoga temple where you can have a quiet retreat by the sea without leaving the convenience of the city. We would like to share our healthy lifestyle with travelers who are interested in sharing our high vibe abode :)

The space

We are a yoga temple where you can come and retreat with the convenience of being in the city.

We have on street parking, a bathtub, washing machine, blender and unlimited wifi.

Sita works on her PhD usually from home, so is often available to give you advice.

Elwood is a very green area close to the beach with everything you need. Close to St Kilda if you fancy a bit of nightlife but please don't return home drunk.

Elsternwick station is a twenty minute walk away. There are many buses close by.

We have a second room listed under Elwood yoga beach retreat. If you would like to come with friends we have room for up to 4 at a time.

Our house is an old character home. It's not the ritz but were doing our best to keep it standing :) if you have any concerns please communicate with us.

Please read the house rules!

Guest access

A private study, double mattress. Anything in the bathroom with 'guests' written on it ie. body wash, men's deodorant, body lotion are for sharing. You get a shelf in the fridge, use of the washing machine, lounge room and outside areas.

Interaction with guests

Sita is home most of the time working on her PhD while Bryan works full time. We occasionally take our guests out but it all depends on whether it fits in with our busy schedules.

Other things to note

We are very focused on yoga here. Please take time to read the rules as this place may not be suitable to everyone. Also our home is an old character home and has had a lot of wear and tear over the years. We are doing our best to keep it standing, but it is not a brand new apartment, so please be aware of this before you book.

Bryan is really nice host, he is friendly and easy going person! Room is big and house has a good vibe. Neighborhood is quiet. House is about 5 minutes walk from tram which takes you to the center of Melbourne. Grocery shop is 20 minutes walk away. House has everything you need for cooking, washing and chilling. We really enjoyed our stay and talks with Bryan!

It was the worst house I have ever stayed... They didn't tell me where the key was so we waited outside in the dark night and finally the other guests came out and helped us The room and shower room was really dirty And there are too many Mosquitos... And the hosts came back at midnight and they talked in a loud voice in other room and laughed a lot.It was too noisy They don't have the responsibility of the host

Response from Claire:
I am very sorry you had this experience, Shinya. Unfortunately I am not currently in Melbourne to ensure the place is properly maintained. Certainly there should not be any noise even close to midnight and I am very disappointed that this has happened. Please accept my apologies. Sita
