Interaction with guests

There may be another tenant in the house who may need some consideration re: bathroom in the morning, easy access to kitchen, laundry....

As I work locally and my hours are varied and flexible, I am often in and out or close by. I'm usually just a phone call away and happy to help you with any quires.

When I'm home I do like to relax or sometimes Im busy potting around or happy to share a cup of tea or have quick chat in passing...

The neighbourhood

What can I say?… this is the Inner North.
Oh how do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
Just walk out of the front door, point in any direction and walk. You will surly end up at an amazing spot. Just ask me for some tips!
The whole area and surrounding suburbs are rich in culture, diversity, art, music, design, and fun. Fitzroy, Collingwood, Brunswick, East Brunswick, Carlton, North Carlton, Northcote, Westgarth, and the City are all just 2 to 20 minutes away.

Centrally located in the hub of everything cool, hip and groovy, this home is in a relatively quiet street, used by the locals as the main cyclist route from Brunswick, straight through to the city.
Everything you need is literally around the corner.
Within a block you will find:
Public transports, late-night supermarkets, specialty stores, organic stores, delicatessen, bakeries, chemist, dry cleaner, banks, ATM's, post office.
Green Park (St. Ali's) Cafè opens at 7am and the iconic Danny's Burger's closes at 3am.

I recommend you enjoy the colorful abundance which is "North Side" :
-Gertrude Street
-St Georges Road\Brunswick St
-Smith Street
-Johnston Street
-Lygon Street-Carlton & East Brunswick
-High Street/ Westgarth Street
-Sydney Road -Brunswick & Coburg
-Nicholson Street
….and the lane ways are all a walk away.
-Edinburgh Gardens- not just flowers and lawn!
-Fitzroy Lawn Bowls- another local icon
-CERES Environmental Park- give yourself a couple of hours or more with organic market, a permaculture nursery, communual vegetable plots, cultural education, chickens and lots of local happy humans.
-Merri Creek and Capital City Bike/Walk Trail
-Rose Street Local Artist Market.
-The Abbotsford Convent- beautiful gardens, full of restaurants and galleries, outdoor cinema, yoga studios, markets etc.
-Childrens Animal Farm- not just for kids!
-Nova and Westgarth -independent cinemas.
-Laneways and Street Art
A plethora of cheap'n'cheerful or AMAZING eateries and restaurants, cafès, pubs, bars, band rooms, music venues, dance venues, galleries, book stores, specialty and local design shops, vintage bazaars, 5 great swimming pools and gyms, more parks and gardens you can chuck a frisbee at…..or just walk around, taking it all in with your eyes wide open!

Getting around

Public transport - easy!
Just 1 block away, tram routs 112 & 96 and also bus routes 250 & 251. Tram head directly to the city centre and through to St Kilda.
The 96 goes direct to Spencer Street- Southern Cross Station for Shuttle Bus direct to Melb Airport. Cabs are often zipping past the main roads only a block away or call from here to order direct.
I also have a push bike and helmet with a lock for your use.

Great, comfortable place to stay. Hostess was friendly, had great recommendations, and was always willing to help in any way possible. I have to say this was probably my best AirB&B experience yet. Great communication, easy check-out, lots of suggestions for eating, shopping, travelling and the space is amazing. Very eclectically cool! The room with a VERY comfortable bed, and a large bathroom. Kitchen was available for coffee making and breakfast, Anna was just the best hostess and I'm so thankful I chose this property in Melbourne.

Anna-Maria was very helpful in giving me some ins and outs about the local area, what best places to buy food that I liked, she took the time to give directions , let me know the latest and easiest transport systems available in Melbourne and well she was just lovely in helping me feel comfortable in my stay in Melbourne where I came and went with ease. I would recommend staying at Ann-Maria's place as a cool little hang out that's well priced and close to some very cool hang outs.

I highly recommend staying with Anna-Maria! She is so wàrm and friendly - I immediately felt at home. She knows the area inside out and recommended some great music venues. She even offered to meet me at the tram stop because it was raining! I slept amazingly well. The room is comfy and the house is so groovy. I hope to stay there again next time I visit.

I already came with high expectations because I saw that Anna has lots of very positive reviews. Still, my expectations were exceeded by Anna´s warm and welcoming personality. It totally felt like home to me, thanks for the great time, Anna! :-)

Hi Wiebke, Thanks for your review and your suggestion re: smell in the room . Yes, its awful!! Im so sorry. I am going to have the carpet steam cleaned - perhaps some food was spilled on the carpet from a past guest ??? I does smell food-like.

Clean and close to everything. Anna is a very friendly and considerable host. She always can provide right tips for her guest.

My stay with Anna-Maria was perfect! Right from the beginning, she helped make me feel like I was staying in a home rather than renting a room. I appreciated her hospitality and kindness, as well as helpful tips about the neighborhood and what to see. I travel a lot for work and am rarely home, so it was wonderful to have the feeling of being in a comfortable house for the week. The area is very close to public transportation and plenty of great cafes, healthy restaurants and cute shopping! Thank you again Anna, if I'm ever back in town I'll know exactly where to stay!

Born in Melbourne- A real "North-sider". I have lived and worked in Fitzroy and around the Inner-North all of my adult life (over thirty years)
Its been wonderful to watch this side of the city morph into the vibrant place it has become.
Always out and about, I love this place!
Yes, I generally walk, cycle and tram everywhere.
I speak fluent Italian -its my mother tongue, and I can get around a little French and Spanish too.

I've always been involved in the community as a trader and a participant so I really enjoy and love this artistic and colourful place as my own. Ask me anything!
I really enjoy people and am happy to share some of the local stories and history with you.
