  • What you see is what you get! The room is exactly like the pictures and it is even better in real life. It is an amazing place with a touch of creativity. Nadeen is one of the most welcoming, friendly, happy and amazing host I've ever met. The place is right in a vibrant neighborhood with loads of cafés, shops, restaurants and such. The room itself has everything you need (microwave/fridge/fork) whatever you need, Nadeen's got you covered. Michael, Rusty(pet dog) and Brody (tenant) are extremely welcoming and we had a lovely chat about the world. It's also clean! I'll definitely stay at Nadeen's for the next visit!

  • Our stay with Nadeen, Michael and Rusty (the gorgeous Kelpie) was easy, comfortable and a great place to stay for a wee trip away to Melbourne. A very central location and great decor made the stay even more stress-less. I definitely would recommend !

    Hey Sarah, must have been a price increase since I last checked with Starbus, thanks for that update. Thanks also for your review we hope to see you again. Rusty eagerly awaits your return to take you up on that offer.

  • A real Airbnb gem! In a quiet part of Carlton but very accessible from the airport and CBD, Nadeen and Michael's place is full of character. The room is comfortable and tastefully decorated with plenty of creature comforts - including my favourite, lots of back issues of National Geographic to read! The shared bathroom is great too. With a warm welcome and a friendly dog too, this place couldn't be better. Loved it! It's most definitely at the top of our list for our next trip across Bass Strait!

  • This was a fantastic location - a street from the hub of Carlton, close to everything delicious and delightful. The room was lovely - plenty of heating, great bed, and tons of extras to make life easier, like milk and timtams in the fridge and masses of books and music to choose from. If you're not used to the city noise levels bring some earplugs - I was grateful for them. The hosts Nadeen and Michael were great. I wasn't around much, but it was lovely to have a chat when coming home, and so nice to have a dog around too.

  • nadeen and her husband were just extremely sweet and helpful alongside their cute dog rusty who is so well behaved. the room is amazingly spacious and cosy and the wifi is great. the location is directly next to a whole slew of italian restaurants and a comfortable ten min walk from the central area. we had a lovely time and would highly recommend anyone to come here. if i ever plan to return to melbourne i would choose to stay here in a heartbeat.

  • Cannot imagine a better AirBnB experience. This space was my home for two months and it was, if possible, even more charming and wonderful than it is in the photos. The room is large, bright, cheerful, and thoughtfully furnished and designed to have everything you need. The view looks out onto a lovely tree-lined street and could not have been more cozy. Virtually all of the furniture is beautiful and unique and made by hand by Michael in the woodshop just downstairs!

    Nadeen and Michael are simply out two of the most wonderful people you will meet on this earth. Even though I was traveling alone 10,000+ miles away from anything familiar, they made me feel at home from the first moment I arrived. They strike the perfect balance between leaving you to yourself if and when you want to be left alone, and being open to and interested in conversation when it suits you. They are wonderful people with big hearts and open minds. I learned a lot through my conversations with them and am a better person for it.

    The neighborhood could not be better, either! Carlton is walking distance to just about everything, and the tram stop is just minutes away by foot. You are surrounded by cute shops and restaurants and cafes, an independent movie theater and a large grocery store are just steps away. This has to be one of the very best locations in all of Melbourne!!!

    All in all, this was a perfect place to live for two months and I did not want to leave. Thank you Nadeen and Michael (and Rusty, the sweetest dog ever!) for welcoming me into your home! Hope to see you again soon.

  • Don't know what's left to say.
    It was amazing and I didn't want to leave'
    It felt like home after long time travelling so I couldn't see the sense of actually flying home.
    You are awesome!!

  • This was an amazing Airbnb experience! The location was perfect and the hosts were fantastic. We were meet by Nadeen's partner Micheal when we arrived, he brought us through his incredible wood workshop and up to our room where we were greeted by Tim Tams, Teas and fresh coffee. We asked if we could do a washing whilst we were staying there and Nadeen was so cool she even offered to take it to the launderette for us so we wouldn't have to spoil our evening in Melbourne. The guys were great and it was such a good stay, we'd highly recommend it.
