Staying with Nadeen was fantastic.
The entrance was an unexpected pleasure; a creative window display showcasing Michael's hand crafted furniture made from recycled timber that was like an art installation.
We were immediately greeted warmly, and helped with our luggage.
Our room was spacious, airy and spotlessly clean and creatively furnished. It was stocked with everything needed for an enjoyable stay including books, a great selection of teas,and very generous toiletry provisions that thoughtfully included a basket of items that travellers may have forgotten to bring.
Situated in the busy and funky heart of Carlton it is an easy stroll to the numerous eateries and Nadeen's restaurant suggestion was perfect. I only wish I'd had more time to explore the interesting area.
Nadeen is a lovely warm and friendly host, and she went over and above what I expected to ensure that our stay was memorable for all the right reasons.
I left reluctantly as I would have loved to have spent more time in her lovely space just enjoying it!
I live in this B&B during 28 Feb to 4 Mar 2014 & I find my stay marvellous! Nadeen is so helpful to allow my early check-in, she even drove me to tour around my neighbourhood areas and dropped me at Victoria market to start my first itinerary! What's more, I got sometime at night to chat with Nadeen, her husband & other residents. They are really friendly & we really have a fruitful exchange. Another impressive thing for me is the friendliness & hospitality of Nadeen, she cared for me all the way and she even drove me to the airport at 4:00am so as to catch my early flight! I'm really glad & grateful to have such a nice stay at Nadeen's home. I highly recommend to others to take this B&B!
I've just got back from my long journey, and I am pleased to share my experience at Nadeen's place. Personally, i loved her place, very cozy & neat but everything we needed was equipped in the room as microwave, cups,plate, refrigerator, fan, extra blanket(literally everything). Most of all, we were very pleased about the way Nadeen welcomed us, very cheerful, informative and friendly. The supermarket was one block away, so it was very convenient to buy some fruits and milk n bread for breakfast. Just one tip for visitor, it is much easier if you take a tram to mel university station and then walk toward to Lygon street. Just pass 3 more blocks 2 reach drummond street and then look for the building number. Thank you! Oh, they have one lovely dog, Rusty? It was very nice to see her since i missed my 2 dogs ,who were left back home,so much.
We spent a wonderful night in this beautiful and big room! Really relaxing! Nadeen and her husband were fantastic, it was nice to meet them. We totally recommend Nadeen's place.
Nadeen was lovely. The room was perfect, just what I was looking for. And Nadeen's generosity and helpfulness added to a perfect stay. Would definitely recommend staying here
Nadeen and Michael were terrific - very welcoming, responsive, helpful and down-to-earth. Our room was clean and comfortable and the sharing of the bathroom was not an issue. Had the opportunity to meet other people staying in the B&B and that was fun. Location was around the corner from bustling Lygon Street and a 25 minute walk or a quick and easy tram or bus ride to the city core. When we left, We had an early morning flight and, on her own initiative, drove us to the airport. Enjoyed our stay.

Nadeen and Michael were fabulous, friendly hosts. The location was perfect - right around the block from Lygon Street with plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops. And the room was very spacious, clean and had everything we needed. We would definitely recommend staying here!
We loved our stay at Nadeen's place. The room is huge, beautiful, full of light and Michael's custom woodwork. There were delicious cookies, chocolates, breakfast foods and tea/coffee (plus an extra special honeymoon gift for us!). There's a kitchen area, sitting area and sleeping area plus a fireplace (don't think it's working but pretty).
The neighborhood is excellent- the little Italy of Melbourne. It's 1 block from Lygon St with plenty of restaurants and cafés. The tram is a few blocks walk that takes you to the CBD.
Best of all were the hosts. They made sure we had everything we needed and Nadeen even gave us a lift to the airport. We highly recommend Nadeen and hope to return in the future. Thanks!!
Our stay with Nadeen and Michael was wonderful. Great location, lovely clean room. Loved the quirky shop entrance, not forgetting the friendly dog, and all the homely touches in our room. We couldn't have asked for more. Our hosts were friendly and helpful and we will definitely come back again.
