I live with as small a footprint as possible and take some steps around the home to help achieve that: recycling, and minimising energy consumption and water usage, etc. You're welcome to join in.

Toby was a wonderful host with a great knowledge of Fitzroy and Melbourne in general. The space was better than expected - very clean, plenty of space, great decor, and a very comfortable bed! Melbourne's weather made the 5 minute walk to Fitzroy seem much longer but location can't be beat. Would recommend!

Our guest who has stayed with Toby on a number of extended occasions, always enjoys his time at Toby's and highly recommends his home.

Toby is a great host, always up for a friendly chat and has plenty of advice on what's going on around Fitzroy and on the local restaurants. The location is great, especially if, like me, you haven't been to Fitzroy before. There are plenty of great restaurants, op-shops and record stores and it's only around a 20 minute tram ride from the CBD, with trams running all day until around midnight. The apartment is lovely, clean and warm, with your own bathroom, and breakfast is provided. All in all I had a fantastic stay and would definitely be back!

Toby was a very pleasant and amicable guy to stay with and treated me as a guest by welcoming me into his place. He provided breakfast which was a great touch to the experience. He made my check in and out of the place a smooth and convenient process by meeting me at work to drop the keys to me and giving me a hand with my bags. Toby was also up for a chat and had some great tips about Melbourne as well as providing guidebooks in the room to help maximise your stay. Toby has a very comprehensive kitchen with lots of amenities and was happy for me for me to use these to cook. Although I never did cook because Toby's place was a few blocks away from some cool bars and restaurants (e.g. Brunswick Street). It was also around the corner from Edinburgh Gardens which is great for a stroll.

Comfortable and quiet place just north of Melbourne CBD. The tram lines to the city centre are close by. I enjoyed my stay here.

I had a wonderful stay at Toby's place. The unit is very close to the city, the wonders of Brunswick St & tram stops/ public transport is very close. Toby is a great host & the room was very comfortable. Thanks again Toby.

I'm just a guy living in the inner north of Melbourne.

Love being in Fitzroy. I cook, read, spend time with friends and family, and go to bars, pubs and gigs. I enjoy cinema, music and books.

I keep fit with swimming, riding, running and Pilates. And get away hiking, scuba diving and cross-country skiing whenever I can and generally try to keep outta trouble.
