Other things to note

One small thing to note is that the back house backs onto the train line and whilst guests don't see this as a problem we want to make sure you're aware that is some noise as a result. We have slept before in the house and had no issue with this however some may find it distracting!

Jayne was not there in person but made absolutely sure that everything was perfect for our arrival. The correspondence before our arrival was friendly and accurate and Jayne left us with a contact no should we need it. Would go back again and would strongly recommend it to friends and family

We had a wonderful 6 night stay in Jaynes beautiful home and would highly recommend it. This was our first Airbnb experience and our first trip to Melbourne and we fell in love with the house and the city! We are a family with 3 grown up kids so really appreciated the space. The bedrooms are all large and airy with high ceilings and 2 have ensuites (ours was the very special one with the egg shaped bath- gorgeous!). Bedding was bright and clean and towels all white and fluffy. The living area of the house works really well for a family group with comfortable sofas and a large dining table and French windows onto a lovely outside seating area which also has a table and a fab bbq! We love to cook and this is a cooks kitchen - good local shops provide all you need and Jayne has a very well stocked pantry which she generously allows you to use. We had some great, relaxed times at the house as it's such a comfortable place to be, we didn't want to rush out early every morning and we used it more like a home for the short time we were there. Jayne is a perfect host, she is very friendly and very efficient and full of tips on where to go and what to see in Melbourne. She even helped us find the perfect restaurant for New Years Eve! We bought Myki cards and used the trains and trams into the centre which were great and you get to see more of the city that way. Jayne's attention to detail has helped create a beautiful and stylish home, the fresh flowers and toiletries in the bathrooms are a really welcome touch - she is a thoughtful and caring host who takes great pride in her home and I would happily recommend The Yellow Door to all!

Staying at The Yellow Door will mean that a large group can interact well, and the close buy amenities are perfect, but the website is a bit misleading re house standards, and train noise is a genuine issue.

Response from Ramona:
Michael thanks for your feedback. All points have been taken into consideration and the site updated. We have many guests not have any issue with the train noise however agree that a note on the site will set the expectation from the outset. Once again, thank you! :)

Great location, we used both houses for our group of 12. Back house is near tracks to a commuter train that keeps running at night but we got use to the noise. Ramona was always quick to respond to any questions we had. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We are an energetic and fun family of 8. Yes that's right - 8! I am a lab scientist and each one of us has an interesting and different profession and passion - whilst different in our work lives you'd struggle to find a more tight-knit and welcoming family!

There's Sam, Samantha, George, Fred, Rim, Dani, Steph and myself and we are very proud to offer our property as luxurious guest accommodation.

Between us we have travelled to over 20 countries, experienced many wonderful cultures and stayed in countless accommodation. We are passionate about hosting and providing an excellent level of care and attention. We hope you feel 'at home' at The Yellow Door during your stay!
