The apartment has large rooms, great airflow and a vibe that everyone seems to love - just see the reviews! :)

Maggie Grove is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travellers. Fast WiFi, Netflix, Nespresso machine.

A 4 minute walk to Auburn Station, 10 minutes to Swinburne University, Glenferrie Station and Camberwell Junction.

The space

Walk in and notice how good this place feels!

A long hallway with space to take off your shoes, hang up your cap, coat or umbrella (this is Melbourne after all!).

The separate toilet and bathroom is very handy. Get your body and your clothes clean in the bathroom/laundry. There is a washing machine and a dryer, you are welcome to use both.

The King-size bed welcomes you with a view over the trees, a laptop friendly work space, hangers, drawers, extra pillows, blankets, floor fan, heater, electricity points including USB rechargers. Lars & Ivan stereo - link up your phone or laptop for sweet beats in the bedroom. Plenty of space in the wardrobe to hide your suitcase too. Iron and ironing board available to get your shirts ready.

The lounge has a 55" TV with Netflix, PS4 and selection of games, DVDs and books. Free and consistent WiFi.

You're cooking with gas in the kitchen, literally. There's tea and a Nespresso machine with a selection of pods. If you have your favourite flavour, you are welcome to bring your own Nespresso pods too. Toaster, kettle, gas stove and an electric oven.

The bathroom has a selection of shampoos, conditioners, soaps, body wash and bath gels to choose from. For the ladies and metro-blokes, we've got hair gel, hair spray, perfumes, make-up remover, toothpaste and a hairdryer. Not to mention, nice towels!

Guest access

The bedroom, bathroom, balcony and living spaces are yours to use. All the drawers that contain things for you, be it kitchen, bathroom, dining or lounge are all clearly labelled - you are welcome to use everything there.

Because I live in the house, there are several cupboards containing my own possessions - so if its not marked, that's mine :)

Interaction with guests

Either myself, my mum or my co-host, Wendy, who all live locally are available for you 24/7. We can be at the house within fifteen minutes and can fix any issues or help you in an emergency.

Other things to note

I welcome guests for single night stays.

I couldn't recommend dealing with Nadia and staying in her clean comfortable apartment with a king size bed and a leafy view. The entire experience was warm and inviting which made our time away feel like a home away from home. Thanks again Nadia.

We stayed here for 2 weeks and it was just amazing, we would have loved to extend our stay. This apartment has everything in place and the hosts clearly knows what the guests needs are. Lot of supplies to get you going. The kitchen was also well stocked. Large TV with Netflix was a great addition, also special mention for the quality of appliances provided. Location wise it is close to Auburn station, the tram stops are also at walkable distance. Our stay wouldn't have been perfect if not for Wendy and Nadia, they were always available to answer any questions we had. I'd definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a short term accommodation.

My first trip from Australia was at 18 months old with my parents to China. On that trip I swallowed my mother's engagement ring on the plane and that was the start of my adventurous life.... Since then I have traveled many times around the world on my own, with my family and with friends.

I work as a consultant, so am normally traveling around Australia and Asia for work and I will often ask the taxi drivers for good places to eat and they normally know the good spots! I also always take a pair of comfortable shoes, so that I can explore the town or city I am in and maybe find some interesting things. The secret to happy work traveling is forgetting you are working and enjoying every spare minute!

If I stay at your place I can promise you the following about me - I laugh a lot and am always smiling, I am clean and considerate of others wishes. I do like to converse and get to know people, so I am not shy at all. But I do get tired after walking around all day and like to go to bed pretty early, then get up early to do some exercise and find breakfast. If you have a piano, then I will enjoy practicing on it. If it suits you, I would like to spend some time in the kitchen as I sometimes prefer to find a market and cook for myself.

If you would like to know anything else about me, please let me know.
