Interaction with guests
I love my neighbourhood and know my city well. I enjoy pointing visitors to places of interest and can provide information and advice on request.
I can tell you where to find the best Pho, suggest restaurants, shopping highlights, coffee shops and galleries. There are wonderful bush escapes nearby along the river and the nearby cultural gem, the Abbotsford Convent, always has food, music and art.
If you love Asian food, then Victoria Street is one of Melbourne's most famous Pan Asian shopping strips. You'll find high quality (and often inexpensive) Vietnamese, Thai, Chinese, Korean and Japanese food minutes away. Specialist Asian supermarkets offer exotic fruit and produce and mainstream shops form a cluster in the handy Hive' shopping centre around the corner.
Public transport can take you directly into the city, to the sporting arenas, the beach suburbs of St Kilda and Port Melbourne and Docklands.
A permit for visitors on-street parking is available for those with a car.
Other things to note
This is a brilliant base.
A walk in every direction will lead you into neighbouring suburbs of Collingwood, Richmond, Fitzroy, along the river and into leafy Kew.
I walk into the city in 30 mins but public transport is excellent. It can take you directly into the city, to the sporting arenas, or to the beach suburbs of St Kilda, South and Port Melbourne and Docklands.
Information about excursions provided.
I have a simple 'do unto others...' expectation.
Enjoy the house and garden, treat the facilities with care and be kind to others.

I live in inner city Melbourne, Australia. I love to garden, I'm an enthusiastic cook and I have a passion for the arts.
I am very interested in the environment, politics, food production and social issues.
At home I sniff out quirky, arty, beautiful and natural gems - which is what I do when I travel as well.
I enjoy it when my hosts are generous with information about their area - the cafes, walks, and galleries close by, and as a host I enjoy sharing this information as well.
I've travelled widely (25 countries so far) but I have also travelled extensively throughout Australia and lived in four states.
Beautiful Tasmania is under my skin these days and I spend most of summer there.
