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.
Mike and Mark were great hosts. This was my first AirBnB experience, and I was very happy with it. Mike was very helpful in providing directions to the apartment, and personally greeting us during his work day to show us around the apartment. They even provide tourist information, topped up Myki cars for Melbourne public transport, and best of all an amazing breakfast every morning.
Mike and Mark are very polite and they make you feel comfortable in their home, while respecting your privacy at the same time.
Great location only 10 minute walk to the Melbourne CBD- I would definitely recommend, and would stay again!
We had a fantastic stay with Mike & Mark. Although we arrived in the early hours of the morning it was no trouble to them. The apartment is well laid out with amazing views of the city, our bedroom was very comfortable. Such a perfect location for getting around Melbourne by foot. Breakfast was just what we needed to start our day, with lovely fresh fruit, yoghurt, cereal & toast. Having a gym and pool for our use was also great to take advantage of! After accidently leaving the key to our house in Ireland out hosts were so kind to send it on to our next destination. We would highly recommend Mike & Mark's apartment to anyone!

If you are coming to Melbourne for vocation,u dont need to look anywhere else.
We were delighted with the accommodation and the hosts were so friendly and helpful. The views of Melbourne and breakfast was a bonus!
Mark & Mike's accommodation is located at a very convenient neighbourhood,right at the heart of the Melbourne CBD,just as described. This was our first experience with an AirBnB accommodation and probably will be our most memorable one, all thanks to the extremely warm welcome that we received from them. Right from the enquiries to checking in, they have patiently helped us through all our questions and have gone out of their way to provide us with the most accurate and up to date information. The room is very cosy and comfortable and their breakfast spread requires a special mention .. All in all, a great place to stay in Melbourne and highly recommended.
Great location, views are tremendous, Mark and Mike were so welcoming and informative, very close to Federation Square/Flinders Street train station and Crown Casino, Large variety of breakfast was set up every morning, would rate as a 5* if a hotel. Thank you both for a fantastic stay, would definitely stay again when in Melbourne.
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 7 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.
