Please note this is a homestay run by friend and family volunteers (which explains our cheap price in a good location), not a full serviced hotel.

Please just make sure you check the parking sign properly (eg 2P, 4P, unlimited time zone, permit zone etc). Car parking permit can be hired for $5 a day too.
One thing I often get is people don't realize how good this location is until they arrive. 10 minutes walk to the famous Abbotsford convent, close to Fitzroy and Melbourne botanical garden and Melbourne Cricket ground. On one side you have all the prominent cafes, exquisite restaurants, bbqs, dessert house, bars, shopping strips, entertainment, music/DVDs, cinemas, local bakery.. a multicultural bonanza. On the other side you have gardens, parks, river, walking trails, castles and convents, boathouses, secret alleys, picnic, children's farm and farmers market etc This house is amazingly located on a quiet tree-lined street sandwiched in the middle of all above. Come see for yourself =)

    ** SPECIAL CORONAVIRUS PRECAUTIONS: The room is thoroughly cleaned with disinfectant for every new guest arriving. As is the common area of the bathroom and kitchen - which is cleaned with disinfectant constantly. ** Cheap room, but comfortable and clean - a lovely modern apartment with a heated swimming pool and gym. Fantastic location close to the city centre, tram 2 minutes walk, great cafes and restaurants in the area. This room is great value for money!
    The room is simple - with a double bed and a wardrobe...but there is no natural light. There is a second bedroom in the apartment (that has a full length window and nice view) for those who wish to upgrade to a better room. See my listing "Room with a View" for availability and prices.
    Great area, really conveniently located close to the CBD (and with easy access on tram). But it also has a beautiful natural setting of the Yarra River nearby - just a couple of minutes walk and you are walking along the Yarra River trail in nature. There are a couple of fantastic cafes and bars in the area. A supermarket is just 2 minutes walk away, and the Victoria Gardens shopping centre is 5 minutes walk. Cheap and delicious Vietnamese restaurants are less than 10 minutes walk in the area known as "Little Vietnam".
  • The experience was excellent. The place is super clean and cozy. Good ubication. Several shops and bars nearby. Also, it is near the center walking. We had a great time! :)

    Alex2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Super

    Gaetan2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • The flat is very small but it has a lovely style and some smart details. There is a big pool and gym what we enjoyed. The flat is extraordinary equipped dishwasher, seasoning, cleaning stuff, all cooking tools you can imagine... The bathroom is really nice and clean, as the entire appartment is. The tram is 2 min walk from the appartment and takes ~ 20 min to cbd. There are supermarkets and restaurants nearby.

    Patrick2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Stuart is really hospitable and is very prompt in replying with my messages.

    Janedy2020-02-28T00:00:00Z

    Gorgeous one bedroom apartment 5.5 km from the heart of Melbourne CBD. An easy 30 minute tram ride to the city that will pick you up from the road directly at the bottom of the apartment. Access to sauna, spa, pool, gym and amazing rooftop with views of the city. Step directly onto the tranquil yarra river bike/walking track that winds its way into the city.
    walking distance to great cheap vietnamese food along Victoria street. The extremely popular cafe "Kitty Burns" below apartment building. Walking distance to Bridge road shops and cafes. Terminus hotel closest pub with a great courtyard.
  • Stephanies apartment is just as described and exactly as photos suggest would highly recommend, Stephanie is easily contactable and an awesome host in all aspects. Will stay again in a heartbeat.

    Susan2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was an amazing apartment complex that is located in an absolutely convenient spot! It is right across the street from a shopping centre/ movie theatre. Stephanie went above and beyond by providing everything and more. I can’t stress enough how satisfied I was by staying here. The apartment complex has facilities open to the tenants/ guests that made the stay even more pleasurable.

    Danielle2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • Creature comforts is clean , comfortable & true to its photos. It's in an attractive convient location close to transport, shopping & river walks. Stephanie is an easy to contact helpful host.

    Jacqueline2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Stephanie's apartment. The rooftop pool, spa and gym were amazing and the location was very convenient with the tram stop just opposite. The little touches of toiletries and cholate etc made us feel really welcome.

    Pamela2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cozy place, everything exceeded my expectations. Plenty of essential amenities, the space is perfect for just one person or a couple. Stephanie is also very nice and responsive.

    Hui2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • I love staying at this apartment. It is stylish with all the modern conveniences you need. It is great to be able to reach the Yarra walking track in a minute or two. Trams to the city are right outside the door as are lots of shops and cafes. Stephanie is extremely helpful & hospitable.

    Isabella (Ilene)2019-10-22T00:00:00Z
  • The place was clean, modern and we loved the details. (Mint scented shampoo, delicious chocolate, and so on.) The local cafes inside the complex were great. Having the shopping centre and tram stop across the road was really convenient too. When we had questions Stephanie answered very quickly. Would stay here again.

    Anna2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • This apartment is in a quiet location, is close to shops and amenities and across the road from public transport to the city. The bed was super comfortable, the shower was hot and the kitchen well appointed. We'll definitely try and secure this apartment again when we're next in Melbourne.

Information about the destination is difficult to obtain. The bathroom is clean and there is a kitchen. I feel 100% at home.

  • This is a unique and really fantastic place to stay. It's a hostel but feels like a big home. Really comfortable and generous, highly recommend for a comfortable, well priced place to relax and sleep for a short term trip.

    One thing I often get is people don't realize how good this location is until they arrive. 10 minutes walk to the famous Abbotsford convent, close to Fitzroy and Melbourne botanical garden and Melbourne Cricket ground. On one side you have all the prominent cafes, exquisite restaurants, bbqs, dessert house, bars, shopping strips, entertainment, music/DVDs, cinemas, local bakery.. a multicultural bonanza. On the other side you have gardens, parks, river, walking trails, castles and convents, boathouses, secret alleys, picnic, children's farm and farmers market etc This house is amazingly located on a quiet tree-lined street sandwiched in the middle of all above. Come see for yourself =)

  • Frank's property is a lovely older style house with many rooms converted The queen size room I had upstairs had everything I needed. You need to have your own lock to be able to lock the room. My room and the shared bathrooms were extremely clean. The kitchen is supplied with any utensil or cooking aids you would need, and the shops are very close

    Kaylah2019-10-25T00:00:00Z

    My place is close to I Love Pho, Victoria Street, The National Hotel, Terminus Hotel, and Pacific House. You’ll love my place because of the location. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travellers, and families (with kids who don't mind sleeping on a mattress on the floor ;).
    My place has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The room available in decorated with wall hangings and fittings from Europe and North Africa. It's light and inviting.
    We are located in the heart of North Richmond. The city life is on our doorstep. Asian restaurants, clothes shopping and a very big IKEA are right here. Melbourne has world renowned art galleries, exhibition centres, street art and is rich with culture. If it's sports you're into then Richmond is the place to be with stadiums galore for just about any sport you can think of. The Grand Prix is a tram ride away each year. Melbourne is, of course the Mecca of fine dining and boasts some of the best coffee in the world. We have loads of parks and the Yarra River a short 5 minute walk away.
  • Marion was respectful and responsive during my stay. She even made my check in/out times very flexible. Her place is stylish and cozy. I recommend for single travellers looking for a quiet and simple place for a short stay. She has an adorable cat (don't recommend if you don't like pets). The region is full of restaurants (most asian), supermarkets and coffees. There's also plenty of public transportation options.

    Alex2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Marion is an amazing host. Her home is very pleasing to the eyes, and I’m in awe of her hospitality. She has a very cute cat named shadow and she makes the cutest noises. There a lot to do in the area too. I’d love to stay here again. Thank you Marion!!

    Ria2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Marion is a warm and inviting host. Her apartment is covered with beautiful and unique artwork. The quarters were comfortable and private.

    Aaron2020-03-10T00:00:00Z

  • Great place, very convenient, friendly host. Highly recommended!

    Tyce2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Convenient location. It only cost less than AUD 50 from the airport. Within a few minutes walk from the residence is also Victoria Street, there are all kinds of restaurants to eat and drink, there are also Woolworth supermarkets, trains, tram stations, and easy access to the city. Marion's house is also clean and tidy, and you can cook in the kitchen yourself. The unknown route this time also helped us find it. Sincere recommendation

    金兰2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

    Light - filled studio at back of property with king double bed, sofa bed(1), kitchenette and separate bathroom (toilet, shower, basin). Reverse cycle air-con, TV, fridge, free WiFi. Small outside garden area for sitting. Close to bus, train and tram. Easy access to city, MCG, Rod Laver Arena, Olympic Park(AAMI Stadium). 5 minute walk to Abbotsford Convent, Collngwood Childrens' Farm, bike paths, bars, cafes, Yarra River and Studley Park. Quiet location.
    Our space is like having your own little house. It is just one room plus a bathroom, but the room is spacious and light filled, private and quiet, and close to everything. It has a lovely feel. It is ideal for a couple(king bed) however can comfortably accommodate 3 adults(single sofa bed) or a small family as we can provide a portacot, or camping mattresses for small children. We are very child friendly - I am a primary school teacher and love children.
    Abbotsford is the best suburb in Melbourne! Apart from being a 7 minute train trip, or 40 minute walk into the city - we are a 30minute walk to the Melbourne Cricket Ground and Rod Laver Arena where the Australian Tennis Open happens every January. At the end of our street is an old convent that has cafes, markets and various arts events such as writers' festivals, live music, film and food festivals. The Collingwood Children's farm and cafe are next to the convent - providing a gorgeous place to walk and have coffee and watch the cows, horses, donkey, sheep, ducks, goats and peacocks wander. We are right on the bike path that provides a great path along the river either into the city or into the bushland spaces of Studley Park and Dights Falls. We are also walking distance to the trendy Brunswick and Smith street shopping/cafe precincts and many great Melbourne pubs with live music. There is also a bus that takes you straight to the Italian Restaurant precinct and arthouse Cinema in Lygon Street - just a 10 minute journey. Abbotsford is close to all of the best things that the city has to offer whilst remaining safe, quiet and friendly.
  • Roslyn's place was pefect. The space was private, clean and stylish. Roslyn is lovely and was very accommodating. I would definitely stay there again! Thanks Roz :)

    Jeremy2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • Such a fantastic area close to some very funky shops/cafes. Roz had provided some brilliant recommendations & was very friendly & helpful. Comfortable bed & everything available to make for a wonderful stay!

    Wendy2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved Roslyn's place, it was perfect for what we needed. It was spacious enough for 2 and provided all the amenities necessary for our stay, and we took advantage of the extra umbrellas on a rainy day :). The bed was one of the most comfortable I've slept in and you're a fairly short walk (10 min) to the Victoria Park metro station. We were able to meet Roslyn briefly and she was lovely! We would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

    Luke2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Roslyn's place was lovely, very secluded and private, and although small, had everything there I needed. Roslyn was a great host, very helpful. I totally recommend this studio/apartment.

    Mary2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • The studio was clean and bright and located in a quiet location not far from shops and cafés. A short walk to transport(bus and train) which takes about15/20 minutes to Melbourne Central. Everything that I needed was provided and the space was very private.  Roz and Greg were very friendly and helpful. I stayed there for 11days and then flew to Sydney for a week before returning for a further 2 days. As I had oversized luggage Roz very kindly looked after it whilst I went to Sydney. I really enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it to anyone for short or long visit to Melbourne and its surrounds

    Ulf2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Roz really decorated the bungalow in the garden. The train is very fast in the city.

    Mathias2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Roslyn is a superb host and her place is very, very nice. Her house is located in a quiet neighbourhood with very good acces to public transport. There are a lot of nice pubs and cafés around and even a local brewery with pub that makes and sells great beer! The place itself is very comfortabel and has everything you could need; toaster, kettle, french press coffee maker, fridge and a hotplate for boiling eggs or making pasta. Would definitely come back in the future!

    Laurens2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Ros' place is a really cute self-contained cottage with plenty of privacy from the main house. Very neat and tidy, comfy bed, and has everything you need for a short stay. The place is only a 2 min walk to the bus and a 5 min walk to the train. Plenty of good cafes and pubs nearby. Ros and her husband were lovely and very accommodating. I'd happily stay here again on my next visit.

    Welcome to my home. This 'bed and breakfast' is a single bedroom (for one person) with a shared shower room and toilet, as well as a shared living space with kitchen and dining area. I have a courtyard off the living area. There is secure undercover car parking for a sedan car.
    There is a living area with kitchen and dining facilities. You will have full access to my kitchen complete with oven and stove, microwave, kettle, utensils, pots, pans etc. I also provide tea, coffee and cereals, eggs, milk. I have a courtyard off the living area of my apartment. The courtyard is open to the sky. It's the perfect place for eating breakfast in the sunshine. There is reverse cycle air-conditioning. My apartment is on the first floor (USA would call it the 2nd floor) of the building. There is a parking space for a sedan car in the basement carpark, but this needs to be negotiated. There is a lift between the basement carpark and the first floor.
    This is the bustling Vietnamese/Asian cheap eats area of Richmond & nearby Melbourne. Lots of Asian supermarkets are nearby as well as Woolworths, Aldi and Coles supermarkets. Victoria Gardens Shopping Centre (see photo) is a short tram/car ride away. Or you could walk (I often do) for about 10 minutes along Victoria Street. There are several good coffee shops and cafes, such as Coffee Corner, New York Tomato Cafe, Three Bags Full and all within a few minutes walk. Along with the many Vietnamese and other Asian restaurants here in Victoria St., the nearest a minute's walk from the front door of the building, there are other varieties of restaurants, such as, a pizza restaurant, a fish and chips shop and a restaurant specialising in hamburgers just across the street. There are pubs and bars close by. And, as for Melbourne itself ... https://www.buzzfeed.com/bradesposito/melbs-home?utm_term=.qc2jB96MQ
  • It’s a lovely place, good location with supermarkets, restaurants, pharmacies around, very close to the tram stop and well connected to the city and Mary is such a great host, very kind, helpful and friendly. I can only recommend!

    Şeniz2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • It's a really nice and cozy place Mary always made my stay comfortable and better There's another good point which is I was the only guest in the house, so it was very quiet and I didn't need to care about anyone It's close to the tram station and doesn't take so long to get to city I'm really grateful for her hosting and glad to stay in the comfy room

    2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Mary was a great host! She was always helpful and had good tips for activities in Melbourne. There is good working public transport, several tram stations and beaches not far away from Mary’s place. Richmond and Collingwood have plenty of good Cafés and bars with good craft beer.

    Alex2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Mary is always a pleasure. Recommend it.

    Shane2020-02-06T00:00:00Z

  • The room was clean and the location was a bit far from the city, but I was very happy!

    Marianne2019-12-17T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend this place. The room is very clean and cosy, you have all the space you need to feel yourself like at home, the bed is comfortable and Mary is so nice: we had some chit-chats, she gave me some advice. She was also very reactive when needed. You'll have free access to the kitchen to make your fav dishes. Also, the location is very good, tram is 2-min away on foot and supermarkets very closed too . I had a very pleasant stay, and it clearly helped me to start off on the right foot my new life.

    Queen Bed & Foldout Sofa Bed! 2 min walk to the closest tram stop, 10 min from the nearest train station. Great Location! 15 min tram to CBD. 20 min away from the MCG. Close to a wide range of bars, restaurants and cafes. Perfect location for travellers from any background. Very chilled environment.
    An international house often full of people who have just moved to Melbourne and use the house as a basecamp for a month or 2 while they establish themselves. If you need anything or have any questions please MSG me via the app. You are free to use all the facilities in the shared spaces provided you clean up after yourself. You will always get clean sheets and a vacuumed room! It's an old house which is cold in winter and hot in summer. It is priced cheaply to reflect this so if this does not suit your needs you may be better off finding alternative accommodation. Please make yourself at home! (The house has 4 bedrooms, a large kitchen, a garden with a covered area and 2 toilets with 1 bathroom with 3 Airbnb rooms).
    Just around the corner from the Vietnamese District (Victoria Street) which has lots of yummy foods to try. There are also a lot of Bars and Cafe's in the neighbourhood. The tram around the corner can get to sunny St Kilda Beach. Richmond is close to East Melbourne, Fitzroy and Collingwood which also have popular attractions and night life.

  • Ryan replied super fast and was very nice! His ginger cat welcomed us with lots of love too! The photos do not do justice as the place was much lovelier in person! There are 2 other rooms so usually a lot of other guests around for a chat! Perfect location for tourists too xx

    Syeda Alina2019-09-19T00:00:00Z

    Just four kilometres from Melbourne's CBD and nestled just steps from the banks of the Yarra River, this space reflects an understated, classic elegance with a timeless ambience.
    The room is nestled at the front of the property and has its own entrance. And as hosts we will assist in any way we can... Just ask!
    The Convent! What a magnificent place. The proximity to all that the inner city has to offer, including the cafes along Brunswick st, the MCG for all the footy action, the night life that Richmond has to offer and some great fashion precincts with the like of Chapel Street just a short tram ride away. All this on the banks of the Yarra river.
  • Our best Airbnb experience ever. Beautiful, clean, quiet space with many thoughtful touches. Geri and Nick are lovely hosts. I attended a professional development course in Abbotsford and the apartment was very well located- a stress free morning and no battles with traffic, just an enjoyable walk to arrive by 9am. I will pass their details on to our event organiser. We will definitely be back.

    Lauren2020-03-13T00:00:00Z

    Brendan2020-03-12T00:00:00Z

  • We only stayed one night, but made full use of all the facilities, as it rained heavily all afternoon and we didn't feel like stepping out. The studio was incredibly cool even though there is no air conditioning, and it was extremely hot outside. (Great Indian restaurant a short walk away). Breakfast choice was excellent, including fresh fruit, yoghurt, orange juice, bread and yummy home made raspberry jam. If you like stylish black and silver decor, you will love this space.

  • I had an amazing time at Rich’s place. I lived there for 6 weeks while I was in Melbourne for work. The appartement is equipped with everything you need, including a great bed and nice ensuite bathroom. Rich was very responsive and the place looks exactly like in the pictures (even better, as he is working on making the terrace a very nice place to relax!). The apartment is conveniently located next to the train station North Richmond, with a travel time from Flinders Street Station of only 15 minutes. Also, supermarkets are close! What made this stay so great for me, was Rich. He is the ideal roomie! He is interested in how your day was, but also gives you your space when you just want to hang out on your own. We had dinners together and he took me with him to his friends. He was genuinely concerned with how I was doing and I felt safe with and thanks to him!

    Helena2020-03-15T00:00:00Z

I spent two month there and he even invited me to do stuff with him and his friends, but he totally respects your privacy and “me-time” too. I recommend staying with Rich!

Rich is super-chilled, easy going and great with communication. There are some awesome skyline views from the wraparound balcony and the bed is extremely comfy! Thanks for a great stay!

    Watch the Yarra River flow by the bank side backyard outside this tranquil apartment nestled in the city. This private, sleek space is designed for comfort with a spacious walk-in shower, cosy patio, and modern appliances. Includes secure parking.
    Unlike some other Airbnb properties advertised, our apartment is available for the sole use of Airbnb customers. This apartment, built less than two years ago, has everything you could ever need to have an amazing trip.
    Being right on the Yarra Trail, the home is an easy walk to Abbotsford Convent, which offers some great restaurants and cafes. Also, just minutes away on foot, Victoria Park Station runs trains to Melbourne’s CBD stopping at the G and Tennis Centre.
  • James and Lauren’s place was really peaceful and really well set-up. Very comfortable bed, large couch. Just a great place to stay!

  • You won’t regret staying in this peaceful spot. The apartment feels just like home. The location is so quiet and restful. But it’s only a quick walk to everything you could need. And you will be well looked after. Perfect for a single or couple.

    Kate2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • This Airbnb is in a great location. Nice clean building and Condo. Host was quick to reply to all our questions. We have already rebooked another stay .

    David2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • This is a charming little place. The apartment was clean and vibrant. It was a great base for us to explore Melbourne from. It is in a nice area of the city and close to both bus and train stations.

    Riko2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed the location - on the edge of country on one side, while steps from transportation, supermarket, laundry, restaurants on the other. The kitchen was well-equipped and we liked the terrace for dining and relaxing.

    Frimmel2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great apartment for our 2 week stay. Excellent location for visiting all parts of melbourne and right next to the yarra trail to walk along the river. Would definitely recommend. Great host with good communication.

    This is a one bedroom apartment that is not in an apartment complex. It is at the rear of a house in a quite cul-de-sac in the heart of Abbotsford. It is fully secure, modern, private with great access to the Yarra River, walking and bike trails, cafes, sporting venues, shopping and art precincts and some of Melbourne's best restaurants.
    This modern, well-appointed and comfortable one bedroom apartment comprises two levels, the first of which includes a generous living area, a modern kitchen (electric stove and oven, dishwasher, large refrigerator/freezer, meals table which seats six people and high chair). The second level comprises one generous sized bedroom furnished with a queen-sized bed and includes a couch that converts into a double-sized bed and a single trundle bed. So up to five people can be accommodated. The on-suite bathroom includes a double wash basin, shower and washing machine. The apartment is quiet. There is good light, good privacy and WiFi.
    The apartment is located about 3 km from Melbourne’s CBD in one of its oldest and most intriguing suburbs. When you stay here it’s like you are on the cusp of two worlds; on the one side you are metres from the Melbourne’s picturesque Yarra River and its tranquil, tree-laden surrounding parklands and bike riding / walking trails. And on the other are bustling character-laden streets filled with charming cottages and intriguing alleyways, cafes bursting with Melbourne’s famously good coffee, pubs and restaurants and unique furniture and clothing outlets. Other great restaurant, shopping and artistic precincts and sight-seeing attractions are within easy walking or push bike riding distance, including Brunswick Street Fitzroy, Smith Street Collingwood, The Abbotsford Convent, Collingwood Children’s Farm, Victoria Street Richmond, the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) and Rod Laver Arena.
  • Great, friendly host with a super clean place

    Andrew2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful, thanks Kerrin

    Kate2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is very nicely located in a pleasant, safe neighbourhood, and is located next to a huge reserve with a working farm, a golf course, and trails, but very close in. Excellent location. The apartment itself was a pleasant surprise (we were initially hesitant about entering through the garage.... turned out just fine). The website pictures are accurate. It is separate from the main house, very nicely appointed and very clean. We could live there! Kerrin left us to to ourselves but was always available if we had a question. Thank you.

    Brenda2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kerrin’s place. There were many special touches such as fresh fruit, milk and munchies. The kitchen was well equipped and the space was comfortable and stylish. We enjoyed talking with our hosts and were made to feel welcome.

    David2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great 3-week stay at Kerrin’s place. Access is gained via the garage and private front door then the stairs to the 2-level air-conditioned loft apartment which is spacious, well furnished and the well-stocked kitchen is equipped with modern alliances and utensils, as are the bathroom and laundry. The apartment is well-serviced by public transport - 5 minute walks to Tram, train and bus. Parking is easy especially with the 24/7 permit supplied by Kerrin. Smith and Victoria streets are also a short walk away. We are definitely staying here again. Big thanks to Kerrin for her friendly hospitality.

    Dennis2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Such a warm and lovely space. So close to everything. Ideal for the traveller who wants inner city experience whilst still being able to access natural spaces ie walks along the river and local parks for kids. Can’t wait to return in 2020 Our host was always lovely and helpful.

    Elli2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Really amazing place that feels much more like a home than a house! We really appreciated the personal touches and little things that made the house lively and our stay so much nicer.

    Claudia2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Kerrin's place is a hidden bit of paradise on the Yarra. Tranquil - yes, Cosmopolitan - yes, and very comfortable. We had an extended stay with Kerrin as our kitchen was being renovated and she was so hospitable and kind. I can't recommend this place highly enough!

    Spacious room opening onto balcony with Yarra river views. Separate brightly lit bathroom with bath, shower toilet and vanity unit. King single bed and wardrobe space, access to tea/coffee facilities and towels and linen provided.
    This is an ideal room for the single traveller in Melbourne on business or for a weekend away. It overlooks the Yarra river with its bike and walking trail that can take you into the city or out through Heidelberg to the outer reaches of the river. The room is light, airy and pristine clean. The separate bathroom is complete with bath and shower and brightly lit shaving/make up vanity unit. Guests can avail themselves of the nearby ironing room and the upstairs kitchen and laundry facilities.
    Abbotsford is one of the highly sought after inner city locations. It is eclectic in its mix of residential, businesses, shops, pubs, bars and cafes. Commuting to the city is easy by car, train, tram, bus, bike or walking. In 15 minutes you can be at Rod Laver Arena or the MCG. Or walk there in 25. Across the street is Victoria Park, an open public space where you can barbecue, sit and relax or even kick a footy. And the scenic Yarra River is right outside your bedroom. Melbourne's best restaurants, shops and bars are in nearby Smith and Brunswick Streets. Buses and trains are a 5 minute walk away. Cycling and pedestrians are catered for with 40kmh speed limits throughout the City of Yarra. But you can drive too!
  • Phil is very friendly, great conversations, the house and room are extremely comfortable! Near train station, bars and restaurants! I’ll be back!

    Mario2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely amazing hospitality. Phil was instantly so friendly and welcoming, and his quiet, comfortable large apartment by the Yarra River was a sanctuary after a busy day but was remarkably only 5 stops from Flinders Street Station on the train. The local station, Victoria Park, is then only a short walk to Phil's. I chose Abbotsford due to the ease of public transport to the Australian Open Tennis and cricket at the MCG, and it was ideal. Melbourne is a fantastic city, easy to get around, and the sunset Ocean Road coach trip was first class. It was lovely to spend time around the apartment too during my 16 night stay, meeting Phil's wonderful partner Guy, sitting on the patio listening to the bird song, walking up the river path or just chatting to Phil. I could go on singing the praises of Phil and his home for a long review but there is little to add that has not been said by many others of his impressed visitors.

    Angela2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Phis is a very nice host

    Mostafa2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Phil is a great host and makes you feel very comfortable. He is so serviceminded and you feel so welcome. The room is very clean, tidy and has a nice view to Jarra River. And it is great to sit at the balcony and listen to the Bell miner and watch them bathing in the birdbath. I stayed for three weeks and I will definitely use Phil`s airbn next time I come to Melbourne. The place is very central located for public transport, not far to walk to Coolingwood with lots of exciting cafes and shops and lots of nice walking paths along Jarra River.

    Britt2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place, Clean and quite room, secure parking.

    Mike2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Phil was a great host! Kind, friendly and very helpful with local suggestions. Phil's place is in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to walk to all of the action in Collingwood and Fitzroy. The room and bed are small but perfect for one person and the balconies overlooking the Yarra River are a nice touch. The private bathroom is large and well kept. Definitely recommend staying here and would love to again next time I'm in town.

    Hanif2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Phil's place is close to transport trains and buses to the city. It is right on the river with great views and good for walkers or joggers. The apartment is very spacious and everything you can need.

    Jan2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • A clean, modern apartment in a great location near cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and the river. Public transport options are also nearby. The room is comfortable and having your own bathroom is a plus. Phil is a kind, welcoming host who will ensure that you have a great stay. Highly recommended!

The house has a spacious lounge room and an open light-filled kitchen/dining area that overlooks a lush garden. -Room comes fully furnished -A short walk to Smith/Brunswick Street -Quick ride to CBD and close to Hoddle street- but still hidden in cozy neighborhood -Easy access to public transport
  • The house is in a really nice, safe and quiet neighborhood, close to tram and metro stops, cycleways everywhere. Many nice small pubs and all sorts of shops within the walking distance. The house is cozy with a pretty leafy backyard. There is all the equipment one may need for their stay. The room is rather small, equipped with a chest of drawers and a hanger. The bed was very comfortable! Natalie and her partner are friendly and open-minded people ready to make your TO SEE list for Melbourne even longer. I enjoyed my stay here.

    Anna2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nathalie and her husband are so nice. They gave me recommendations for places to see and we chatted a bit about other st . The place itself was perfect. Its a 5-8 minute walk from the tram and lots of shops. The couple does occupy one of the two bedrooms but they are mostly quiet.

    Beautifully decorated modern apartment. Sliding doors leading to a leafy courtyard. Lots of light filling the apartment with full blinds for complete privacy. Well appointed modern kitchen. Very comfortable bedroom with built in robes and draws. A very tranquil and quite apartment. 10 mins to the city, with public transport a 3 min walk away. Right on the banks of the beautiful Yarra river with miles of bushwalking at your doorstep, it's the perfect location to enjoy Melbourne at it's best.
  • Justine was a graciously welcoming host and considerate with her communications with me. I was delayed at the airport which kept her waiting for my arrival longer than anticipated but she made it so pleasant to arrive at her beautiful apartment. My stay was quiet, comfortable with a lovely walk along the Yarra River close by. I hope to stay there again, thank you Justine.

    Mark2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely apartment, tastefully decorated and in a fantastic spot. Easy access to public transport, Yarra walking trails and all that Abbotsford and surrounds have to offer. Justine is a generous and kind host and great communication .

    Quinn2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Justine's apartment is so much more..... from the moment you step inside you are in a special world of beauty, nourishment of the mind and senses, care, style and comfort. This is truly a home away from home, everything you could possibly want or need. Justine is a perfect host - warm, engaging and responsive. The location is stunning, one minute away from urban cool you are in the midst of nature - the Yarra river, the bush, the cycleway, and a few min utes walk to the famous Abbotsford convent community precinct and Childrens farm. I was in heaven!

    One thing I often get is people don't realize how good this location is until they arrive. 10 minutes walk to the famous Abbotsford convent, close to Fitzroy and Melbourne botanical garden and Melbourne Cricket ground. On one side you have all the prominent cafes, exquisite restaurants, bbqs, dessert house, bars, shopping strips, entertainment, music/DVDs, cinemas, local bakery.. a multicultural bonanza.

Come see for yourself =)
  • Frank was very considerate when I asked for booking alteration. Much appreciated.

    Catherine2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • The pod was pretty cool- I liked that I could close it off from the rest of the dorm and have my own private space. However the bed was very squeaky! Great location for my needs. I didn’t spend any time in the rest of the house.

    Gabrielle2020-01-19T00:00:00Z

    READ THIS: A VERY small room, for NON smokers ONLY. (If you are a smoker, you will be asked to leave). Accessed from the outside deck. Has a toilet and hand basin. Shower is in garage, 10 metres away. Breakfast supplied, but no cooking facilities for other meals. Room is for those wanting cheap, private room for a short stay, min. 2 nights. Linen, soap, shampoo, heater supplied. Please don’t use essential oils or spray deodorants or aftershaves in room.
    The room is just outside the kitchen/back door area of the house. We live in the house, and we also have a larger double room available for Airbnb (which costs more) and which has access to facilities such as the kitchen for cooking. This tiny single room suits people who like to do their own thing and just want a bed, shower, and breakfast!
    Our neighbourhood has an eclectic mix of restaurants with emphasis on Asian. There are also supermarkets and the Post Office nearby. We are very near the CBD by tram or train. We are also near the MCG for sports enthusiasts!
  • Very nice little space, close to the city and public transport, also great hosts

    Thomas2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • I can totally recommend Cynthias place ! It is well located- it is easy to get around Melbourne via Trams. Also, communication was fast and precise. A big plus is the supplied breakfast, everything I could have wished for was there.

    Svenja2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Best place ever!, excellent place with a wonderful host

    Oscar2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • If you search a comfortable and cheap accomodation in Melbourne near tram station towards the city: It's perfect for 1 Person not too big and too large because room is little but nice.

    Gabriele2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely small room with own amenities, easy access to city, highly recommended.

    Alice2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. I enjoyed my stay.. they have a dog who is cute. The bathroom is in the garage and its a bit of a hassle when it is raining . But other than that the stay and hospitality is amazing! Will definitely book again..

    Balie2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Cynthia's place was a great place to stay! The room is exactly as described so if you are anything like me who all you need is somewhere to drop the bag, recharge the phone and laptop, shower and sleep, I really recommend this room. And I am a small person so the size of the bed wasn't an issue for me. Wonderful location, great cafes and eateries around. The host is marvelous and Rufus is a very friendly dog. I would not hesitate in staying at Cynthia's place again. Thank you very much, Cynthia and Clarke, for looking after me!

    Hea-Jin2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • A very beautiful and very good house! They accepted me very gently and very welcome! If I ever go to Melbourne I will definitely stay here again! It was so good!

    Marvelous2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location near public transport, supermarkets (Woolies and Aldi round the corner) and a cafe or 2 (if a simple breakfast isn't quite your taste). Great value and given that it's a sharehouse, reasonably clean and tidy.

    Jianling Daryl2020-02-10T00:00:00Z

    Theres are 3 air-bnb rooms in the 4 bedroom house, plus 'The Caravan' in the back garden. There is a double bed and a small lounge area inside the caravan. Also heating and air-conditioning with a private bar fridge. All usual house amenities are available, bathroom, kitchen, laundry etc.. The house is clean and comfortable. You are free to use all the facilities in the shared spaces. Please make yourself at home!
    Clean, private and respectful share-house/hostel with a laid back relaxed environment. It's an old house which is cold in winter and hot in summer. It is priced cheaply to reflect this so if this does not suit your needs you may be better off finding alternative accommodation. Please clean up after yourself in all common spaces!!
    Next door to the Vietnamese district. Lots of yummy asian food! Cafe's and restaurants are abundant in the area. 15 minute tram ride into the heart of the city!
  • Like this place. Friendly people and good location

    Irina2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place is super chill when you just want a very affordable private spot and are not too picky. Ryan was an awesome laid back guy who responded to my questions swiftly. He even got me a dumbbell to train with. Good stuff.

    Mike2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect for a private week away! The caravan is cosy and spacious for one person. Has a bar fridge too! Richmond is a great location too. Very good value for money, would definitely stay again!

    Ryan2020-01-07T00:00:00Z

    昌也2019-05-08T00:00:00Z

  • In a location that was easily accessible to many different attractions, cafes, bars and public spaces, Stuart invited us in through quick and easily understood communication. The room was extremely clean, and although we only booked the private room, we still had access to all other amenities and felt welcomed with the phrase ‘make yourself at home’ from Stuart himself. With amazing people skills, an amazing apartment (and google chrome cast, may I add), our stay was one of the best and most welcoming we could of had! Highly recommend this place for any of your needs, whether it be pleasure or business, and thanks to Stuart for allowing us in your home and over-achieving our expectations!!!

  • We had a great stay at Stuart’s place. Even though there were other tenants there, we didn’t see them at all and still found that we had enough space. Didn’t have time to use the pool or gym but they looked like great facilities. Perfect location, we will be back.
