Tim and Silvana were very welcoming and made our stay easy and comfortable. Their apartment was beautiful, charming and tidy and they made us feel at home. Our room was huge and very light and airy with a great collection of books and a very comfortable warm bed. The location was great; so close to all the shops, restaurants and bars and an easy commute to town. Thanks so much, would highly recommend!
Tim and Silvana were absolutely lovely and welcoming. The place is cute as heck and the location is fantastic! Would happily stay again next time I'm in Melbourne.
Tim and Silvana made me feel very welcome. The apartment is simple and cosy. The room is really nice and spacious.i would stay there again!
Tim and Silvana's was my first Airbnb stay and it was fantastic! The directions were so easy, picking up the keys was no problem and they were both so welcoming and friendly. The photos reflect the accommodation really well and even though it was cold in Melbourne, they had provided extra blankets and a heater and the bathroom was toasty and the shower lovely and hot. Their place is so quirky and fun, and the neighbourhood is great; I would highly recommend staying here. Thank you for having me!
Great location, but not for the faint-hearted! It's a steep flight of internal stairs, and then out into the backyard to use the outside toilet and bathroom. For $80 per night, I thought it was way too expensive because of the outside toilet.
We enjoyed our stay in Silvana and Tims accommodation on Smith Street. It is in a great suburb just a short walk from the city and with lots to do in the Fitzroy area. The accommodation was quirky and the room was large with plenty of books to read and a projector to use if you fancy a quiet night in. Silvana and Tim are very friendly and helpful hosts. Would recommend to stay for the laid back traveller.
I have to say staying at Tim and Silvana's place is amount the best experiences I have ever had on airbnb. Upon arrival, Silvana made sure I was comfortable in their house in every way. The place looks exactly like the photos on Airbnb, stylish, down-to-earth and cosy. My room is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. One of the highlight of this place is its location. This house is located in the centre of Fitzroy, the hip area of Melbourne where many indie shops and cute cafes and restaurants thrive. I feel like I don’t even need to do any research on restaurants and could simply walk into any restaurant and wouldn’t be disappointed, clearly these hipsters have standards.
Silvana is a great host. She is friendly and attentive. I got many great advises of the neighbourhood from her. I wish I was there a bit longer and able to spent more time chilling at the house and the neighbourhood. I highly recommend their place and I would definitely go back if I were in Melbourne again.
About the Host, Tim
We are two artists living in a great apartment in the hub of Fitzroy, Melbourne. We love film, food, music and also enjoy going to see performances and art or driving in the country.
We love meeting new people and are happy to share our amazing place with others. Our home is on top of a shop surrounded by great cafes, restaurants, vintage shops and galleries, yoga classes etc. Our place is in a great location in Fitzroy. It's quite a unique place with a lot of character. If you are looking for squeaky new place with brand new fixtures this is NOT the place for you!
It's more like a farmhouse in the city. It's also in the best location too!
