Our home is right next to public transport we are along the number 86 tram line that goes straight into the city, you could also walk in to the city too!
We had a lovely time at Tim and Silvana's place. We lived in Tim and Silvana's beautiful home for a couple of months when they were on a trip of their own. We only met them once in person, but we had contact with them through email and they have always been amazing and understanding hosts. The house is comfortable and has a very homely feel. It is amazing how a place like this exists in the middle of the city. Smith Street it self is very cool with a lot going on, but once you've entered the house it's like you've entered this serene and calming sanctuary. We feel that we have been very lucky to live here! We we're there in the colder months so unfortunately we could not use the cute little courtyard as often as we had wanted, but this is definitely an amazing feature of the house! I would definitely recommend this place and it's amazing hosts to everybody who would like to experience cool and urban melbourne like a local.
We had an amazing time in this beautiful home. The bedroom is enormous and beautiful, with lovely large windows that overlook the bustling street below. It wasn't noisy at all, and is like a little urban oasis with a cute backyard and very homely feeling. Silvana is lovely and down to earth and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in her home. Thank you for the great holiday! I'd recommend this place to anyone.
We felt comfortable and at home during our stay with Silvana and Tim -- they were ultra-busy but we enjoyed meeting them and having a few chats amidst it all! They're in a super spot for getting out into Melbourne, in a great neighborhood for walking and with easy access to transport. The bedroom gave us plenty of space to relax in, and we'd have coffee at the window so we could watch the parade of city traffic go by. A cosy haven. They were welcoming and easy-going hosts and we'd be delighted to spend time there again.
Tim and Silvana were lovely hosts. The room was very nice and the location perfect; close to all the wonderful treats Fitzroy has to offer and transport if you wish to venture further afield. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again :)
We stayed with Tim and Sylvia in February 2013. The apartment is very quirky and arty. It has no lounge area or TV just a kitchen and outside bathroom and toilet, hower the room is large and comfy. Tim & Sylvia were a nice couple and were available to help if required. Our room was on a main road so if you are a light sleeper bear in mind the tram runs past and the windows are retro so not much sound proofing. We did have a nice stay here and the retro shops around are lovely but as for nightlife it has to be sought out i think. We cooked at home but as it's melbourne im sure there are some lovely places to eat nearby.We had no issue with the outside bathroom and toilet and we did have a little rain but it was no big deal for us but for othersit may be.For art students it's a must or for flexible travelers its fine, if its posh you want it's not for you.
We had the good fortune to stay at Tim and Silvana’s place on a recent Melbourne trip. The location of their place is outrageously good, and we spent a lot of time in the area because it offers much to do, and see, and eat, and drink. It is close to town and trams run frequently on Smith St which makes it a good place to get around from. The room is beautiful and big and more than comfortable. And, of course, Tim and Silvana were excellent hosts. They both are kind, interested, knowledgeable, and passionate people, and it was a great pleasure to be able to share late night cups of tea with them. Staying at their place made our whole trip more enjoyable and memorable. I would love to be able to stay with them again, and I would not hesitate to recommend them to my nearest and dearest.
너무나 좋은 집입니다 ! 아기자기한 인테리어며
집주인들의 세심한 배려까지! 너무너무 완벽했어요 !
저희는 멜번 테니스 시합 기간에 여행한거라 호텔이 너무 비싸서
선택하게 됬었는데 너무 완벽한 선택이였습니다.
인터넷 무료에 수건까지 주시고 냉장고 공간까지 마련해줬었네요
집에서 3분거리에 울월스 마트가 있구요 집 바로앞에서 98번인가
트램을 타면 바로 멜번 시내 중심까지 갈 수 있었네요.
여튼 위치적으로도 너무좋고 방도 후회안할만큼 이쁩니다~
It's really great house for me !
Good location, nice people , lovely house!!!
I love this house ~ It was my best choice in Melbourne:)
Thank you Tim ~
Perfect for me and my boyfriend! We loved being in the middle of Fitzroy to try different cafes and bars every day, and yet Tim and Silvana's place was so quiet and private inside we never would have known we were in such a busy area. They were lovely hosts, the room was great, and the towels smelled like lavender, yum. :)
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Silvana and Tim in Fitzroy! It was really great to be in walking distance of so many great vintage shops and delicious cafés.
Tim and Silvana were such nice hosts! Easy going couple. A great big large room to give you privacy, and a very australian style 'outside' toilet. A very lovely place to stay. Thanks guys!
