Little Audrey Guesthouse is owned by a truly amazing local couple - Paul & Marita - who know more things about Ivanhoe that most people in the area. Marita's mother loved the famous Skipping Girl affectionately known as 'Little Audrey' which has been officially declared a Victorian Heritage icon.

Little Audrey Guesthouse was named in honor of Marita's mother and is home to it's very own Skipping Girl reproduction which greets you as you explore the gardens. The piece of art was made by a man in Adelaide and Marita found her at the Melbourne Garden Show a few years ago and it was an instant purchase. Little Audrey is mounted up high adjacent to the Guesthouse, to create an archway and perfect opportunity for you to share a selfie with it on your socials!

Coincidentally, growing up, Marita's mother had a best friend. They were both dressmakers and met at 14 years of age when they started work together.

Her friends name? None other than AUDREY!

Come visit us and experience this gorgeous Guesthouse for yourself.

Where you’ll be

Ivanhoe, Victoria, Australia

Leafy and abundant – Ivanhoe is a snapshot of suburban paradise. Renowned for its beautiful Art Deco architecture, here there are homes that have enough flair to stop you in your tracks.. Set on sprawling blocks, life in these stylish twentieth-century mansions feels a world away from the hustle of the CBD, belying this in-demand suburb’s prime location.

But it’s not just the architecture that draws visitors to Ivanhoe. Since the 1950s, Melburnians have been flocking to this charming neighbourhood to see the Christmas lights on display each year at The Boulevard. In keeping with this family-friendly feel, the neighbourhood streets are eternally green and peaceful.

Buzzing Upper Heidelberg Road, where neighbours come to meet for coffee and gossip, is where all the action in Ivanhoe takes place. The Centre Ivanhoe – a charming Art Deco building that comes complete with light strewn circular stage, serves as a popular events venue, its stylish twentieth-century exterior matches the feel of the majority of homes in the area.

Hey there you curious creatures! Time to share a little about ourselves. Mike was born and raised in New Zealand and I have a Greek background but am from a small country town in Victoria. Would you believe that in all the time we’ve been together, I haven’t been able to convince Mike to do the HAKA for me? And if you're wondering, the answer is yes...he’s an ex-rugby player and All Blacks man. Mike trained as a chef and moved to the UK in his early 20’s to work and travel through Europe. He is a Sensei, 1st Dan black belt and passionate about teaching children the art of Karate. Mike is also a qualified landscaper, is now heavily involved in property and is one of those people who’s annoyingly good at everything. I graduated and practiced as a Podiatrist for a couple of years, before moving into the advertising industry, security risk management and recently a furniture design & importing business. We launched our hosting journey as a way to help others create unforgettable experiences during their travels whilst having the freedom to personally explore more of our amazing world at the same time! We’re both fans of entrepreneurship, love Gary Vaynerchuck (if you’ve never heard of him, do yourself a favour and look him up) and enjoy studying personal development, online business, the sharing economy and anything that piques our interest at the time. Podcasts, Kindle, books, online courses...we love learning new things. Thanks for stopping by. We hope the read was worth it and so look forward connecting with you as hosts or as travellers. We will do our best to make your stay truly memorable in all the right ways and also can’t wait to be great guests if we happen to chance by your Airbnb in your little corner of the globe. One more thought to take with you wherever you may be... We Travel Not To Escape Life, But For Life Not To Escape Us. See you very soon! Mike & Panagiota x
