Montmorency is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 18 km (11 mi) north-east from Melbourne's CBD. Montmorency was named after a local farm, Montmorency Estate, which in turn was named for the town of Montmorency, Val-d'Oise in France
A space to suit singles/couples only. My home is quiet and peaceful, down a long pebble driveway, away from the street. Sometimes all you hear are the birds and kookaburra's serenading you. The running water in the fish pond, just below the bedroom window will sooth and relax! Enjoy the scent of my handmade aromatherapy soaps and sample creams that I leave in your room on arrival.
As I live in the house I am happy to interact or give your privacy, am happy to help with suggestions on where to visit and where to eat, whether locally or further afield
I love my suburb and over 20 years ago, I said to a friend - "I would love to live here one day", I finally arrived in my beautiful home approx 6 years ago. I love the community feel and friendliness of the people around.
The local village 10 minutes walk away has lots of cafes, and shops for supplies. There are a couple of restaurants and a newly opened wine bar with a great selection of wines and beers.
Train Station is 10 minutes to walk. Bus is approx 5 minute to walk.
There is undercover parking for one car at my property
My pets - I have one boy dog (see picture) and one girl cat and some fish in the pond outside. There is lots of wildlife around!
As I am a clinical aromatherapist, for an extra cost I can offer you a relaxing Aromatherapy massage or facial with a blend of essential oils mixed especially for you.
Myself, Charlie and Audrey look forward to hosting you in our home
Guests have access to the house, as there is only one bathroom, this will be shared.
Interaction with guests
I exercise most mornings and can be out of the house going for a swim, walking the dog or doing an early morning yoga class before 7am. Happy if you would like to join Charlie and I on 'his' walks.
I generally cook most nights (vegetarian) when I am home and I am happy to share a meal or two or more during your stay.
I also respect you may just want to stay in your room and relax.
Other things to note
A once of $15 cleaning fee for short stays over night to 7 days, longer stays $40
I ask that you leave my home clean and tidy, and to clean up after yourself yourself. I do your linen and towels weekly or towels more often. You are also welcome to do laundry.
My household is quiet and peaceful and I am respectful of others time and space and I would hope that my my guests will be the same with me, my home, my animals and the neighbourhood. Must like animals!
I make an effort to walk gently (as possible)on this earth and I am conscious of the water situation we have in Australia and so I ask guests to respect 'shower' time and keep to 4 minute showers. I don't ask for anything that I don't do myself.
You are welcome to cook in my kitchen, but, please keep in mind that I am vegetarian.
