Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Very Warm and funny peops, and sleept very good every night.

  • I really enjoyed my stay at Silvana's! She was very welcoming and easy to get along with. Her place was very homely and felt safe and quiet despite being on the main road. The bedroom was massive and bed so very comfy! It was a bit of a trek to the toilet outside but didn't affect my stay. I would definitely recommend this lovely place as it's great value for money!

  • We had a very nice stay! The flat is beautiful, the room really big and bright with view on the Smith St, lovely small garden to the back and a great host. Silvana was very friendly and gave us some nice hints for things to do in Melbourne. Fitzroy is a great place to stay with its bars and pubs, small shops with design and art stuff, galleries, close parks. Also not far from the city, and if the weather is nice in walking distance.

  • We had a great time in our trip to Melbourne. The house is very unique and cozy, and the bedroom is enormous. Silvana is really awesome person! She helped us a lot to explore the most cool part of the city, and we also had several really nice conversations. Unfortunately we did not have the opportunity to meet Tim, who was in a work trip.... We wish we could stay there for a longer period. In case of another visit to Melbourne, we would definitely stay there again.

  • 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.

Hello, 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!
