North Fitzroy in the most Melbourne part of Melbourne and the best suburb in Australia... in my unbiased opinion. Our house is located just down the road from many bars and restaurants, the supermarket and the beautiful Edinburgh Gardens.

A little further down the road, you will find the iconic Brunswick st where you are truly spoilt for choice: incredible music venues, street art, galleries, bars and cafes.

Our house is typical of the area. Original, old and small. Quirky and cute.

The space
The house is a modest, basic, double brick miners cottage. It is definitely old and small (inner city, yo)- particularly the bathroom, which we keep as clean and possible, but like the rest of the house, it's old... or in other words, bursting with character and quirks! Made up of 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom/laundry (with washing machine) and an open kitchen/dining/lounge space which backs onto a leafy courtyard and typical inner north, bluestone laneway.

Your room has a double bed, bedside lamp, work desk, a heater for the winter, a fan for the summer, a window that looks out on our makeshift shed area and outdoor storage, bookshelves, and original art pieces on the walls.

You share the house with myself and Alfred. Who is a the cat. He is extremely sociable and loves people. I am an artist who spends the vast majority of my time in the studio so it is likely you won't see me much... although Im always up for a chat and a hang if the mood strikes.

Where you’ll be

Fitzroy North, Victoria, Australia

The neighbourhood is great. All the friendliness and community of a small, intimate village but with amazing access to inner city amenities. Walk to one of the many old-school pubs scattered throughout the leafy, tree lined streets; wander over the stunning Merri Creek to catch a film at the Westgarth cinema (15min walk); picnic in beautiful Edinburgh Gardens and check out the skate park, tennis courts and lawn bowls (3min walk); gorge yourself on world class Italian fare on Lygon street, Carlton (20min walk). The area truly is excellent and is right in the heart of the very best that Melbourne has to offer. Lots of bars and cafe's.

We're a short ride into the city and an even shorter ride (or 15 minute walk) to Brunswick street- your one stop street for galleries, great op-shops, HEAPS of excellent second hand bookshops and creative and unique retail.

Hiya :) I'm an actor and a visual artist based in Melbourne. I work out of my studio and artspace and at home. I enjoy getting together with pals, having picnics in the gardens and going to shows, gigs, local galleries and movies. I love hosting on air bnb cos meeting new people from all over the place helps me to feel like I'm travelling too. I keep to myself mostly but am more than happy to have a drink and a chat if you're keen- otherwise I'm just as happy to leave you to your own devices. If this sounds good to you, you're more than welcome to come hang out with me, my girlfriend and my cat at our place in Fitzroy North :)

During your stay

I’m an artist so I spend a lot of time in my art space around the corner. My girlfriend is an actor which means her work schedule is always changing- she can be found playing guitar, reading, gardening and working at home. We're in and out a fair bit and lead pretty busy lives

We are very sociable, particularly in the evenings and enjoy our friends popping in for impromptu courtyard drinks and snacks- these can turn into sprawling sessions. It's a beautiful, relaxed, artistic vibe around our place- If you like to socialise then you are welcome to hang out, but you are also perfectly able to just close your door and keep to yourself- whatever suits you.

I’ve been in this house for 5 years now and have lived in Melbourne my entire adult life so I have a few ideas of good things to do or places to go and I’m more than willing to share that information with you if you're keen for tips- just ask.
