I look forward to meeting you!

Parkville is a quiet and tranquil oasis, 4 kms from the Melbourne Central Business District CBD). Renowned for its world class university and hospitals, what people also discover are its beautiful parklands, its fantastic collection of Victorian homes, its fantastic access to public transport (train and tram) which can take you in and out of the city quickly, and its proximity to other bustling areas such as Brunswick, the new cool and funky area of inner Melbourne., and Carlton, the italian centre with its pizzerias, stylish clothes stores, cinema and bookstores.

The apartment is perfectly located for you to enjoy and explore the abundant restaurants, bars, pubs, art galleries, bookshops, theatre, musical venues and shopping. For those of you who enjoy walking, the CBD, Zoo, Victoria Market and Carlton can be reached on foot, otherwise the Route 19 tram is just around the corner. This Route runs along Elizabeth Street into the city or can take you into the heart of Brunswick. Trams are frequent and our stop is number 17.
The Upfield train line is also close by (Royal Park station). This takes you directly to Southern Cross station to link to the airport skybus or to attractions such as Puffing Billy (Belgrave line link).
Making your way around Melbourne arent difficult when you stay here.

This is a quiet building in a tranquil parkland setting. Its difficult to imagine you are in a big city!

Gloria is such a wonderful host. Her apartment is very comfortable and clean. She made sure that your stay is perfect. I am so lucky to have chosen her apartment. The bathroom and shower were excellent! I had a nice sleep on the comfortable bed. The communications were very easy and she was very flexible. I recommend her apartment to everyone.

Gloria is a terrific host. She wanted to make sure we had a relaxing stay and felt comfortable. She provided more than enough food. Her apartment is beautiful and in a great location both in terms of getting into the CBD and coming from the airport. (Taxi fare was $47 for 4 people mid-morning on a Saturday) We would definitely consider this Airbnb in the future. Thank you Gloria!!

For anyone needing more than just another place to stay in Melbourne this is a perfect location with the perfect host. Far enough away from the main city area to be quiet but close enough to get there quickly. Near the zoo and park area it is a wonderful place for walking around and exploring. The tram system here will get you just about anywhere else and there's one just a few minutes walk. My wife and I have stayed at a number of excellent B&B places Gloria's tops them all with the most comfortable, welcoming, enjoyable and friendly atmosphere making it indiscernible from staying in our own home.

Gloria was such an excellent host. She went out of her way to ensure we were always comfortable and was always around for a lovely chat as well as tips on seeing the city. Definitely recommend staying with her when in Melbourne.

This place is just fantastic. The apartment is very worm as Gloria, and there is a very good view of the city. Both room and bathroom were clean and tidy. Gloria is the best person you can meet when you visit a new place. She is relaxed, kind and very chatty ;) I highly recommend this place.

Gloria User ProfileGloria is a superhost.

Professional. Enjoy theatre, music, reading, cycling, walking AND travelling - anywhere off the beaten track. Favourite travel destinations are Norway and Spain.
I travel light and really enjoy staying with people, rather than impersonal hotels. I want to experience the day-to-day life of where I go, learn tips from the locals on what to do, where to go ... and generally, blend in and live like a local.
As a host, I am friendly, open and very much enjoy getting to know people, who they are, what they do and sharing life's experiences.
Fluent in italian, happy to provide italian conversation classes for those of you interested in brushing up on your language skills!!!!
