The best of Melbourne is at your doorstep when you stay in our comfortable and convenient abode. Just 2 minutes walk to Bridge Road's excellent cafes & restaurants, shopping outlets, and the tram stop to the city. Private large bedroom & own ensuite.

The space

Hi, I'm Richard. My partner David and I have been living in Richmond for a few years now. We can't think of anywhere better to live in Melbourne! Our home is located in a quiet street off vibrant Bridge Road. We have a friendly neighbourhood and a sunlit residence and garden, which is a delightful retreat after a day of work or other activities.

The spacious guest room (16sqm) is located upstairs with its own bathroom. The queen-sized bed is like a cloud to sleep on, you'll be asleep in a second - if you haven't already fallen asleep on the super comfortable leather recliner chair in the room.

The room contains a desk/table and desk lamp with a view over the street below. There is also ample wardrobe space available.

A kettle/tea/coffee and bottled water is provided in the guest room for your convenience. There is also a 24" TV in the room, with cables provided if you wish to connect to your devices.

Commanding views over the heritage neighbourhood and Neptune Street will give you a great perspective of the area.

We also occupy a few rooms upstairs (bedroom and study). All is very private and separated and we are sure you will feel happy and comfortable.

The house is centrally heated and cooled, however we have put extra heating and cooling in the bedroom if you need. Other items for your convenience include: fresh towels and linen, shower soap, hand basin soap, hair dryer, iron & ironing board, dish washer, kettle/tea/coffee in room, Nespresso machine inc pods, TV in your room as well as main living area, and ADSL2+ unlimited Wireless Internet.

Breakfast comprising cereal, jam and honey is provided (local fresh soughdough bread upon request). Fresh fruit also supplied. Alternatively, you may wish to try out one of many local cafes within a few minutes walk that all serve excellent breakfasts, including Reunion, El Atino, Lumberjack, Touchwood Gypsey & Musquito etc etc

Guest access

Your bedroom + private ensuite is located upstairs. Guests may use the kitchen/living areas, both courtyards, and the upstairs laundry (refer to house rules).

Check in after 5pm and check out by 9am, unless by prior agreement.

Interaction with guests

Both of us hold professional jobs in the city and often work at home, which allows us to meet your needs and make your stay enjoyable.

We spend the evenings cooking dinner then studying upstairs or relaxing downstairs with our two miniature schnauzers, Max and Rufus. Please feel free to use our living areas for your meals, relaxation and entertainment.

Other things to note

We have two adorable dogs, Max and Rufus. They spend their days outside and come in for cuddles and a snooze. Being miniature schnauzers, they always love to kindly welcome guests for a few minutes. They do like to have attention! They get taken each morning for a short drive and walk to nearby Burnley Park and you're welcome to come along if you like.

The room looked just like it did in the photo and was perfect for my business trip. Bed was really comfortable, room was spacious and the desk was perfect for my laptop. The ensuite was great as was the shower. Richard made you feel very welcome and couldn't have been more helpful. Looking forward to staying again on my next work trip to Melbourne.

Hello. Easy going, friendly, professional and considerate sums me up. I love travelling, meeting new people, getting outdoors, and enjoying good food and wine. My partner David and I also enjoy spending time with our two adorable boys Max and Rufus - the miniature schnauzers.
