My first AirBnB experience, it was great. A very warm welcome was given, and a lovely comfy bed ensured a great nights sleep was had for my 2 night stay.

Loved my stay at Anna's charming, art filled, white weatherboard cottage, located near a beautiful park. From the charming white room with the cosiest bed, the sweet little touches of nibbles in your room, plus the added thoughtful touch, of pre-warming your room prior to coming home, at the end of an Melbourne winter's day. Bliss! You will leave inspired not only by the interesting, eclectic home, but also by Anna's artistic influences and her lovely, easy going nature. Anna also very graciously, accepted into her home, my beautiful little pooch, Jazzy, which I was truly appreciative. Thank you for a wonderful week Anna. Looking forward to next time! :D

Anna made me feel right at home in her lovely little leafy cottage in Clifton hill! Its situated in a quiet area and hidden down a ROW but I quite liked that aspect for a sense of security. 5 min walk to the station and cute cafes ! Delightful stay overall! Thank you Anna xx

This is a real Airbnb - homey and comfortable, an incredible treat to be able to stay at Anna's little cottage filled with beautiful artworks - and Anna :) warm, easy, comforting. Everything you need. What Airbnb was originally about - sharing and connecting and being let into another world for a little time.

Anna is the best host ever. She is really lovely and very helpful. She arranged a door lock for me. I do appreciate it. She also helped me for my upcoming interview as well. It was a very pleasant stay with Anna! I do recommend this place! Very comfy bed and beautiful house in an easily accessible place!!! ♡

I stayed 16 days at Anna's and it couldn't have been more pleasant and welcoming. The room is nice and quiet, the bed is very comfortable. There is not too many space to store things, but I had no problem with that even with a big suitcase. The kitchen is great to sit and the little garden feels like an inner city oasis. The house is small but cosy and lively with Anna's art everywhere. I chose the area because of my sister living nearby, but in either way its the perfect location to have a green and relaxing surroundings and easy connection within 15 minutes to the CBD. Anna is such a lovely person and was very helpful and warm welcoming with everything. We had lovely chats as well as we did our own thing. She even did have things to play with for my nephew visiting. Anna always cared if my room was cool enough and turned on the fan, when I forgot or wasn't there, which was really nice. It was my first airbnb experience and it couldn't have been more easy going and lovely. Will definitly come back again!

I've lived in Melbourne, Australia all my life and really love it. I've travelled in Asia, Europe and America. My favourite would be hard to choose! New York? Rome? I still have dreams I'm there! We used airbnb often and really enjoyed the freedom and relaxation.
I'm an artist and I teach adults painting at the nearby Abbotsford Convent. You'll want to go there! Galleries, artists studios and cafes near the river and in beautiful gardens! Try a class for fun - I can offer a discount! Being creative in all ways is a great way to live!
