Melissa was a very kind and welcoming host. Her home is immaculate, well appointed and very comfortable. The proximity to Kardinia Park/Simonds Stadium makes her home an excellent place to stay if visiting Geelong for an AFL game.

Melissa's house is really comfortable and beautiful. Although we weren't able to meet (we were only there for one night and arrived late and went on our way again early in the morning) we felt really welcome. We definitely recommend Melissa's place!
