We try to explore ways to reduce, reuse and recycle as much as possible, thus our house has been furnished with mostly retro/recycled items. If you are wanting a place that is shiny and new this is not the place for you! We offer simple accommodation!

We look forward to meeting you.

We had a very nice stay at Silvana's place. This little house is very charming and authentic. Silvana and Tim are very nice and gave us plenty of advices on what to do and how to get there.
The location is perfect and it's very easy to go all around Melbourne with the tram. Fitzroy area is full of little cafés and good restaurants.
What a lovely (quick) stay with Silvana! She couldn't have been more helpful - from tram cards to gelati recommendations and even offers to help me deal with moving my car every few hours. The flat itself is so unique and I found it fun to head outside into the garden for the toilet and shower! The neighborhood is very convenient to public transport and is maybe my favorite of Melbourne in terms of restaurants, bars, shops, quiet side streets and the energy. Would definitely stay with Silvana again.
내가 너무 좋아하는 피츠로이에 위치한 숙소였고, 사진을 보자마자 한눈에 반해서 정했던 곳이다. 한국에선 볼 수 없는 독특한 구조의 하우스여서 짧은 일정이지만 선택해서 묵었다. 빈티지한 하우스가 너무 이뻤고 포근한 온실같은 느낌을 주는 아늑한 곳이었다. 처음 이용한 airbnb 숙소는 만족스러웠다. 그리고 매력적인 집주인 커플은 조용하고 친절했다. 화장실이 밖이었던 것이 조금 불편했지만 그마저도 좋게만드는 아늑한 집이었다. 현지인이 된 기분이었다.
The room is wide and clean. So i felt comfortable! And S&T are so kind. Also the location is good. It is close to city(downtown). And there are many stores and restaurants near the house.
Great choice. Silvana & Tim were friendly and gracious hosts, and the place is very well situated in the happening neighborhood of Fitzroy, and has a unique charm. Wish we could have stayed longer!!
Séjour parfait, Silvana et Tim sont très sympa, leur maison est vraiment cool, propre et la chambre est immense. Le quartier de Fitzroy est vraiment bien, très animé et bien placé. On peut même aller en ville a pied!
Merci à silvana et Tim pour leurs conseils!
We enjoyed our stay in Silviana's house. The room was huge and light and the neighbourhood ideal to hang out and explore Melbourne. Thank you for the coffee also!
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!
