Warm and funky comfortable private room in a large four bedroom double brick artist's home set amongst dappled sunlit garden. It is only a few minutes' walk from public transport to city (MCG, Galleries) and close to airport.

The space

Studio and the garden of our home is a focus for rest, recreation, and creativity. We welcome guests to enjoy that cup of tea, book, glass of wine or meal alfresco, in one of our lovely shaded outdoor spaces. Indoor common areas for relaxation are the comfortable lounge/dining area with local TV viewing facilities, the large kitchen, and, of course, the privacy of your charming room. Perfect for access to National Gallery Victoria/Melbourne Museum/Boxing Day test cricket / Australian Open tennis/Melbourne Cup@ Flemington/Cox Plate@ Moonee Valley Racecourse/Moomba/ Grand Final AFL/Royal Children's Hospital/ Melbourne Zoo/ Women's Hospital/Royal Melbourne Hospital and so much more.
Private art lessons are available in studio on request, in Calligraphy, Shibori, Japanese influenced blockprinting with Lino or Woodblocks. Just talk to me about it; my studio is set up for teaching.

Interaction with guests

We welcome our guests and show them where everything is, but respect your privacy. Helpful guidance is aways available. If guests would like a home-cooked meal, I am an excellent cook; I just need a day's notice and an agreed price, depending on menu. Happy to cook for you and leave you to it!

We had a great time staying with Lis and her son Bill. They were genuine, lovely and welcoming people, and we have good memories of our time there. More than once we got so caught up in conversation in the morning we were running late for work! On a practical note, Lis and Bill are knowledgeable about the area, and gave some great recommendations - especially for food, drink and live music. We whole-heartedly recommend a stay with Lis - she's an excellent host! P.S. Biko the dog loves a good scratch!

We had a pleasant stay at lis's house. It was nice to have the feel of a hostel, but within a home environment. Thankfully there was a tram at the end of the street which connects the house to the city within 40minutes. To get to any of the other suburbs, you need to catch another tram from the cbd. The last tram is around midnight which can be a good or a bad thing.
