Close to the famous Sydney Rd and Lygon Streets.
Our home is a modern 2 bedroom townhouse situated down a quiet Cul-De-Sac just behind the vibrant Lygon Street and a 5 minute walk from Sydney Road. Both bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs, as well as a second living area that we use as a home office/study space. Upstairs is a large open plan kitchen and living space with dining table, couch and 55” LED TV with Foxtel and Netflix.
The guest room has a Queen bed and it’s own private ensuite bathroom with a massive shower with 2 heads. We also provide an electric blanket with dual controls and a column heater with thermostat and timer to ensure you stay nice and snug on those chilly Melbourne Winter nights!
Guests are free to use all the facilities, including the kitchen (BYO food) and washing machine. Guests are also welcome to use the TV upstairs, with Foxtel (incl Sports) and Netflix, as well as free tea/coffee.
Interaction with guests
Craig works during business hours and is home most evenings, while Emmy studies during the day and works in the evenings. We will do our best to be flexible around check-in times but please keep in mind that we do have busy lives and we are not a hotel :). We will provide plenty of information about the area and its attractions, as well as all of the fun things to do in the Greater Melbourne region. One of us will always be nearby to assist with any questions you might have about the property or the area.
Other things to note
You never know what the weather will bring in Melbourne so we advise to be prepared for anything! We do provide an umbrella.
- No shoes in the house
- Quiet hours 10pm to 7am
- Smoking on balcony only
- No other specific rules. We would expect guests simply to show basic courtesies like cleaning up after making a meal, turning lights off etc :)
I am a Kiwi professional in my early 30s and live and host with my partner Emmy, who is in her mid-20s, is a student and works in hospitality.
When we are at home we are pretty chilled and enjoy cooking, wine, music and film. I am also a sports fan and enjoy keeping fit by getting to the gym as often as I can. We see hosting as a great way to meet some interesting people whilst building a network for future travels!
