Mark and Mike are fantastic hosts and made us feel really welcome in their lovely apartment. We felt really spoilt with breakfast being laid out for us every day. They were both very friendly and happy to offer suggestions about how to get around and things to see/do while we were there. Barney the cat was also a bit hit with us!
The apartment is spotless and as described in the listing page. It's a short walk or tram ride away from the CBD and we found it easy to get around. Mark and Mike were very accomodating of a couple of late nights that we had due to late arrival and attending a friends wedding.
If we ever go back to Melbourne we wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again, they made our 1st Airbnb experience a really pleasant one.
Mike and Mark were very welcoming and hospitable hosts. They made us feel welcome and comfortable. While small the room had a nice bed and we had a private bathroom. The breakfast was wholesome and nice.
We had a fantastic stay at Mike and Marks! The apartment was lovely, very stylish and the views over the city were breathtaking! Mike was extremely helpful with getting us to the right places for our city plans! We enjoyed a lovely breakfast every morning. The bed is very comfy and the private bathroom is ideal, the shower was great! The pool area in the apartments was fantastic. Mike and Mark go above and beyond to ensure guests are well looked after! We enjoyed the company of Samba and Barney the cute cats!
This was my first experience using Airbnb and Mark & Mike made it a real memorable one! Located 5 mins from Southbank, perfect location to enjoy Melbourne. Visits to MCG/Rod Laver Arena/Royal Botanic Gardens,etc. are all walking distance from the apartment. The apartment itself was very stylish and comfortable with sumptuous morning breakfast in company of their 2 lovely cats :) If you are visiting Melbourne, most recommended place!
Mike & Mark's apartment is conveniently located 5mins from Crown casino. The room & bathroom were uber clean & modern. The unit has panoramic views of the CBD. There's a nicely equipped gym & pool downstairs as well.
Mike & Mark were attentive & welcoming hosts, nothing was too much trouble. They welcomed me into their home as their guest & were interesting guys to chat with. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with me.
Mike greeted us on the day we arrived & showed us what we could do in Melbourne/ how to get around. They even provided us with 2 extra tram cards for our friends which was a lovely gesture! Their place was very clean & had great views. Breakfast daily was an added bonus! Great first AirBnB experience :)
Mike and Mark are very nice and easy to talk to. They tried to make my journey as smooth as possible by providing brochures and information about transportation and where to go upon my arrival and throughout my stay. They also provided breakfast, which was a nice way to start the day.
The apartment is incredibly clean and tidy. The view is also excellent, just like the photos. There was privacy in the room, and it was also very comfortable.
Mark and Mike an Australian couple, married in New York, have lived in Melbourne since 1986. With both our families living overseas, travelling is just what you do. You’ll often find us planning or thinking about where to stop off before or after seeing the folks on the next trip.
We’re both currently working in Education. Mark originally from New Zealand works part time in a College teaching Music to kids 7-10 years old. Mike hailing originally from London in the UK works as a Manager in Vocational Education & Training.
We both got the bug from our own hosted experiences in Prague, Paris and Amsterdam and started hosting over 9 years ago. Passionate about Melbourne it gives us a buzz to be able to share our city and knowledge with visitors and hope that we can provide a great base for your Melbourne stay.
