300 metres from Malvern station, 15 minutes to CBD. On several tram lines (no. (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), and 6) that service the other inner and outer middle suburbs.
On popular shopping/cafe strip and large park.
Walk to Monash Caulfield or one stop.

The space

Classic colonial home on Caulfield Park hill. Between park, train station, trams and popular Glenferrie shopping and resteraunt strip. 15 minutes from city centre.

There are two rooms available. This one is a medium/large.
A larger one with a separate study may also be available (see Amazing Malvern listing).

The house is a classic renovated late Edwardian (Tudor revival) style two story home that will remind you of a villa in Tuscany of the south of France or visiting Gran. at the family farm in the country yet it is only minutes from the CBD.

As well as your private bedroom, guests can enjoy two lounge areas with antique furniture and open fireplaces. A very cosy atmosphere is maintained with central heating (and cooling in summer) and several seperate recreational areas for you to relax, read or watch tv etc.

Kitchen facilities are always available and breakfast ingredients provided.

There is a deck at the back with BBQ facilities and a partially enclosed all weather rear terrace.
A large park with pond, walking tracks and recreational facilities is only metres away as is the the renowned Glenferrie Road shopping and restaurant strip and the Chapel Street and St Kilda entertainment districts.

The great thing about Carnarvon House is its proximity to the Malvern station and the inner suburban tram networks.
The Melbourne rail network consists of 200 suburban stations on 16 lines which radiate from an underground metro section of the network beneath the Central Business District, 15 minutes from Malvern station which is 300 metres from Carnarvon House.
There are also several tram lines (no. (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), and 6) close-by that service the other inner and outer middle suburbs and fill the gaps in the network between rail and light rail services.

The hosts are a wealth of knowledge about eating out, entertainment venues, shopping, sightseeing, exploring the ethnic communities of Melbourne and helping you discover the little-known and sometimes secret locations and laneway cafe and bar areas that Melbournians love to frequent.

Really enjoyed our stay at Ian's. Was so convienent being right across the road from the train station, so extremely easy to get to CBD and trains run 24 hours on Weekend, so no need to worry about getting back. Ian was extremely welcoming and made us feel so at home, and gave us lots of help and tips during our stay!
