Mark&Mike's place really has a stunning view and it's close to the CBD. Perfect place to start for getting to know Melbourne for us.
It was our first time using Airbnb and we were absolutely amazed. From how to get from the airport to their place and what can be done on which day during our stay to where to find what in the apartment... They were helping us where ever possible. And these guys know Melbourne inside out.
It was an absolute pleasure staying there and it felt like visiting friends. Thanks for having (website hidden) - Barney (the cat) took good care of us as well. This cuddly cat was as good of a host as his owners were :)
It was a pleasure tonmeet Mark, Mike and Barney ! The appartment and the room are exactly with photos. It is very well located to discover Melbourne. The breakfast is delicious.
The stay is amazing! Mark and mike are good host, providing nice and cosy room and breakfast every morning. They even provide us myki card for travelling, just top up whatever u've spent before leaving . Location of the unit is wonderful, right beside Melbourne CBD. Never a problem during my stay and had a very enjoyable experience in Melbourne.
Mark and Mike were very accommodating, from pre-arrival to the second we stepped out of the apartment. A very beautiful space, my sister and I truly enjoyed our stay here.
Our room was cozy and well-equipped with everything that we needed. The private bathroom was also spacious and clean with modern fittings.
The apartment is a nice short walk from Melbourne CBD and we were delighted with a stunning view every morning and evening. The breakfast was lovely, and we thoroughly enjoyed the company of their cats samba and barney.
Great value, and we highly recommend for anyone travelling to Melbourne!
Mark & Mike are very warm hearted hosts. They have two super cute cats. Mark & Mike 's place is in a very good location, which is close to the city centre. Live in their places, you can enjoy the beautiful view of the city and the convenience of their location. They provide us with the detailed information which give us a good guiding in traveling in the thanks. And we are really regret that we did not try the super swimming pool in their building.
Many thanks to them!
What a jewel this Air B & B is. From the moment we booked with Mark and Mike we received a lovely welcome email with all the details we needed on how to get from the Airport to their lovely home and much more other great information.
Our bedroom was warm and welcoming and our bathroom had much attention to detail. The breakfast was very generous and made a great start to our day.
Mark and Mike were friendly and helpful with any of our transport enquires, or what to see on a rainy morning. Where we left too much money to top up the Travel Cards they provided they even chased us up to give us the excess - real genuine people!
Without any hesitation, we will be recommending them to all our friends who may be visiting Melbourne!
Everything was more than GREAT. Mike n Mark are amazing hosts who enjoy having people over. They made us feel at home and were always willing to help. They are really good prepared and have a lot of turistic info. The apartment is really nice (like in the photos) and the location could not be better. Breakfast is awesome, everything ready in the morning, no matter how early you get up. Are you looking for a place in Melbourne? Then stop looking and stay with them.
Gracias por todo!
