Nestled in one of Melbourne's most sought after suburbs, our place is in the heart of Fitzroy North with Edinburgh Gardens, countless local bars, Piedimonte's supermarket and the beautiful Merri Creek trail and bike tracks all just a stone's throw away. With iconic Brunswick street just down the road, you'll be spoilt for choice: incredible music venues, street art, galleries, bars and cafes. Come and check out your home away from home and make your Melbourne experience an unforgettable one.
The house is a modest, double brick miners cottage. Pretty old (particularly the bathroom) but bursting with character and quirks, it is made up of 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom/laundry (with washing machine) and an open plan kitchen/dining/lounge space which backs onto a leafy courtyard and typical inner north, blue stone laneway. We have a projector installed in the lounge as well as a very decent sound set up for music/movies.
There is a bbq and outdoor seating in the backyard which is perfect for low-key weekend drinks. I'm an artist so the house has plenty of art throughout.
Your room is fitted out with a double bed, work desk and wardrobe space and is great for a single person or a couple.. or just two people who don't mind sharing a bed, if that's your thing.
My girlfriend and I stay in the other room so aside from that room, you have complete access to the whole house and all facilities. We are both artists who work and study different hours so are at home at varying times.
Interaction with guests
We're friendly and approachable and happy to help you enjoy your time with us in any way we can. We've been in this spot for 2 years now so have a few local tricks up our sleeves.
We are quite sociable, particularly in the evenings and enjoy our friends popping in for impromptu courtyard drinks and snacks. It's a beautiful, relaxed vibe- If you like to socialise then you are welcome to hang out, but you are also perfectly able to just close your door and keep to yourself, that's fine too. It's all fairly relaxed so whatever works...
Other things to note
If there is anything else you want to know just give me a call or send an email.
Oh, also we have a cat... His name is Alfred and he's very docile and sociable and loves the sunshine. If you have a cat allergy or have a deep loathing of cats, this will not be the place for you.
The golden rule really is just to be respectful. Treat our house like you would the house of a close friend, be kind and honest and we will all get along swimmingly. The place itself is small so cleaning up after yourself is imperative:
- Please wash up after cooking
- Please keep the common rooms/bathroom tidy.
- Feel free to eat the food/drink the drinks but be sure to replace things.
- Keep it relaxed, have fun and don't be shy to ask questions.
I'm an actor and a visual artist based in Melbourne. I have just this year gone back to study at uni and when I am not there, I work out of my studio and at home. I enjoy getting together with pals, having picnics in the gardens and going to shows, gigs, local galleries and movies.
I love hosting on air bnb cos meeting new people from all over the place helps me to feel like I'm travelling too :) I keep to myself mostly but am more than happy to have a drink and a chat and share a meal if you're keen- otherwise I'm just as happy to leave you to your own devices- whatever you like, it's your holiday. If this sounds good to you, you're more than welcome to come hang out with me, my girlfriend and my cat at our place in Fitzroy North :)
