About this listing

This room in our lovely townhouse has it all - tv, dvd, mini lounge and library and private ensuite. Located 9k from the CBD, a walk to train and trams, and a short way from cafes, bars and galleries in Melb's exciting inner-North!

The space

We've utilised an elevated double bed to make the most of this compact and comfortable bedroom with ensuite bathroom. The bed is accessed by a ladder and underneath is a great little sitting area where you can read or watch tv or a movie (flatscreen tv, dvd player, dvd's and books provided).

The room is located on the ground floor of our three story townhouse and is separate from the living area on level two and our private bedroom and bathroom on level three. Guests can make use of a great range of modern facilities, including a spacious modern kitchen with microwave and dishwasher, wifi, bbq, smart tv, front loading washing machine, heating and air conditioning (in living area only).

Guest access

Guests will have access to their private room and ensuite on the ground level and the living area, kitchen and balcony on level two. The laundry facilities are on level three and guests are free to use these upon request.

Interaction with guests

We are both open and sociable types and happy to spend time with our guests when we are at home. We have lots of advice about things to do and see all over Melbourne - especially art, theatre, dining out and queer/queer-friendly nightlife and events.

While we tend to keep a pretty quiet house after dark we are more than happy to share a drink or two with like-minded souls. We also love our food and cooking and look forward to sharing meals with other 'foodies' that come to stay - show us your signature dish!

Other things to note

- LGBTQ friendly.
- Smoking on balcony with the door closed ok.
- Plenty of free parking on the street.

My first airbnb experience was definely amazing and made my one year working holiday in Australia even more memorial. I stayed with Joel and Don for entire one month, the room was cozy with complete privacy and convenience. Though I need take public transport to work in CBD everyday, it was quite convenient and relevant safe as both train and tram is only 5-min walk from the house. Joel and Don are wonderful, always feel good to talk to them, our goodbye Chinese lunch was one of the best memories:). I would love to stay with them again when I am back to melbourne in July, as for me the place seems like a "second" home in melbourne now.

Both hosts made me feel very welcome. The room was private with an ensuite and direct access from the street which with my work at strange hours was very convenient.
