Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Nadeen & husband were very friendly accomodating hosts. The room was full of great furniture made from recycled furniture, and special little touches - like the interesting books & back up basket of toiletries which I needed cos I left mine home! Perfect location in the middle of Carlton ..

    Response from Nadeen:

    Thank you for talking the time to write a review, it was lovely to meet you!

  • My first time using airbnb and I was greeted with an amazing experience at Nadeen and Michael's! The place itself is fantastic (very comfortable and picturesque, right next to 'Little Italy" i.e. Lygon St) and is a walkable distance to the city where you'll pass by places like the Melbourne Museum. Nadeen and Michael were fantastic themselves too, with Nadeen even offering to take us to our needed location at 6 in the morning! A quiet little place but definitely not in a creepy and secluded way - a real great way to spend your nights while in Melbourne :-)

    Thanks Susan it was great to meet you and chat. Thankyou especially for such a lovely is sooo beautiful!! I love it. :)

  • Just want to say a big thank you. Our 2 night stay was good. We found our room very spacious and comfortable, the bathroom is shared with other tenants. Part of the stairs are steep and narrow. Michael helped us with our bags, thankyou for that. There is no TV in the room, and we had a small radio/CD player to use, but the CD player button was broken, so only had the radio to listen to at night. There was a selection of CDs in the room. The location was very central and convenient for our needs. Lots of eateries within walking distance. Nadeen and Michael were very friendly and helpful. Rusty the dog is lovely.

    Street parking is limited and restricted and Nadeen sorted that by swapping her car park and supplying us with all day parking stickers.

    Overall good location and friendly hosts. Thank you.

    Thanks Barbara, I appreciate you taking the time and writing a review. Nadeen

  • A great location and appartment - clean, fun, lots of creature comforts, and Nadeen and her husband were warm and welcoming. Its a simple room but spacious and well equipped; the bathroom in the hall is shared, but only 3 rooms sharing. Many restaurants and bars nearby buzzing with hip kids, but none in the immediate vicinity (so no bar noise). Some traffic noise in the morning, but otherwise quiet and pleasant.

  • Our hosts Nadeen and Michael were great (and Rusty the dog too)! Lovely people and was nice to meet them! The place was one of my best I've ever stayed at! The overall feeling of the room and the house is as warm as being at home. :) The room was clean, tidy, very stylish, artistic and provided with many extras to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Very easy to get to the city. They really want to make people enjoy their stay!

    Thank you Nadeen and Michael once again!

    Response from Nadeen:

    Thanks David I am really glad you enjoyed your stay. It was very nice to have you stay. Hope we see you again some time. All the best!

  • Nadeen was great and provided more than was expected in the lovely room. There were books, fresh flowers, the best coffee and lovely bed linen. Also there was tons of space, with a good couch, and plenty of china, glasses etc. so you could self-cater and be very comfortable. Well-done, Nadeen. Thanks, Ann.

    Response from Nadeen:

    Thanks Ann I appreciate ALL your comments! :)

  • We spent two nights at Nadeen's and we had a great time. Really nice hosts, lovely room and perfect location (a few minutes away from the city centre). Carlton is also a funky suburb with tons of cafes, restaurants, shops.

    We highly recommend this place!

    Thanks Nadeen & Michael

    Response from Nadeen:

    Thanks Remi it was great to meet you both and have you stay!

  • 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!

    Thanks Mandie for your detailed review I am sure it will help other travelers. It was great to meet you both!!

  • 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!
