Interaction with guests
Friendly young family with kids and "Cloud" the housecat (....very friendly) in the main house and - we all look forward to meeting you and helping you explore Melbourne by bike, PT or car to make the most of your stay. Have coffee with us in the morning if you like! If you're a keen and regular road cyclist, just ask us about joining regular classic rides around Melbourne with friendly local riding group - Beach Rd (Saturdays, 70kms) and into the Yarra Valley (....Hills) (Sundays, 65kms) or Kew Boulevard midweek rides and post-ride coffee stops.
Other things to note
We're about 20-25mins by taxi from Melbourne Airport - about $50-60AUD one way (Uber is less and I'm happy to recommend a reliable local driver - just ask and I'll put you in touch). There are Skybus options to CBD (Southern Cross Station) which is then about 20 mins by public transport to us.
Be friendly, have fun but please don't smoke on the premises. Please note that we live as family in the main house and we will be home at different times during each day - we have children. The studio is reasonably quiet and private (with blinds and frosted glass) but please note if you have the blinds open you'll be able to see us in the main house and we'll be able to see you across the courtyard. Occasionally we might need access to the laundry and rear storage - wherever possible, we'll only do so with your permission and when you're out. Happy for you to entertain (its a great space for a dinner party) - but since we'll be close neighbours, a lights out disco dance rave is not going to be a great idea! Thanks!
We're a broad-minded, well travelled and relaxed working family - we enjoy meeting people from all over the world and around Australia and happy to share our home and help you make the most of Melbourne with local tips and info. We love to socialise (join us for an evening drink or morning coffee with us in the courtyard) but we always respect your privacy if that's the way you roll - everyone's different!
