Relax and Enjoy!
An amazing spot to explore Melbourne from. We were made to feel at home, our host was very helpful and made sure we were comfortable. The room was spacious, with a nice street view of the trendy neighbourhood. I would highly recommend a stay here if you have the chance.
Suzana was really kind, friendly and accommodating. Their apartment is very unique, the room is big, warm and cozy, and the neighbourhood has lots of shops and restaurants. Their place is also just near the tram station, and it's just a few minutes away from the CBD.
Silvana and Tim's place was really great!
The apartment is very clean, cosy and very nicely located. We had a great time going to local cafes on Brunwsick street- only a short walking distance away. There was a tram stop very close to the apartment so we could get to the city very quickly.
Silvana was a fantastic host and she made us feel at home. She even made me tea when I was sick.
Wonderful location. The neighbourhood became our favourite area in Melbourne - cute shops, the best cafés - and the tram stop is nearby for making trips into the city (a short, about 15 minutes, ride away).
Wonderful hosting. The listing is accurate, Silvana is so easy to work with and very welcoming though we only got to see each other a couple of times.
Wonderful place. The house is lovely in all its quirkiness. We had a clean and spacious room, everything we needed inside, and the library of books in the room was a great source of delight for us. Definitely recommended. Thank you for the hospitality, Silvana!
Silvana made me feel very welcome, was very easy to flow in and around the space, my room was lovely and old style, lots of light, high ceilings and big windows opening above Smith St, will happily return for more stays
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!
