Live like a local, with locals!

We have a bright and light private room in our friendly and creative share house, situated in Melbourne's vibrant inner north.

If you fancy good coffee, small bars, food trucks, live music and vintage shopping, then East Brunswick is for you!

You can safely stroll or cycle the inner north (Brunswick, Fitzroy, Carlton) or take a 15 minute tram to the city, before escaping back to the refuge of your peaceful room.

LGBTIQ+ friendly / multilingual.

The space
About us: We are four social justice-minded creatives aged between 31 and 41 hailing from Australia, Chile, and Colombia and we have lived communally with one another for a substantial time, in a warm and mature home. This is definitely not a hostel or rooming house situation!

We live in a lovely old Californian bungalow in the leafy heart of diverse Brunswick. We have a large backyard and thriving edible garden and we are happy to welcome you into our happy, well-functioning share house!

The room: There is a choice of two rooms depending on which one of us is away from home for study, work or travel. Both rooms have double and or queen-sized beds and include wardrobes. We also offer heating and fans to suit the season and clean towels and linen are assured. Hair care / body wash essentials are also provided.

Communal spaces: we have a large backyard that is half paved and half vegetable garden. There is an outdoor setting for use and you are welcome to eat from the garden if there’s a crop on the go!

Living space: we have a dining room and a loungeroom area you are welcome to eat in and utilise more generally. We're a no-TV household but we do have very fast WIFI and you're welcome to stream cinema wherever / whenever you wish! Our lounge room is a great space for tinkering with instruments too if you’re musically inclined.

Bathroom: we have a separate shower and bath as well as two toilets (one of which is outside) to ensure that it's never overly crowded when we're all preparing for work, university or generally going out!

Please note: we are currently looking after a small sweet cat!

Guest access
Guests have access to all spaces.

Other things to note
Please note, this is a humble share house and not a mansion or a hotel! We keep the house tidy and we want you to also, but it is not a brand new home and doesn't sparkle when you clean it. It is full of character and warmth and we think you'll feel very comfy in all spaces!

Location

Brunswick East, Victoria, Australia

Melbournians are serious about coffee and you've got it on tap in this hood. Brunswick East is also dotted with great little bars and is a regular haunt for street-side food trucks. Of course Lygon Street North is teeming with fantastic restaurants also, as is Lygon Street South for that matter. You'll be a two-minute walk away from Lygon Street!

During your stay
We're a busy bunch and we treat our home like a bit of a refuge on week nights in particular. You'll find that you have the place to yourself a lot during the week days because we all work and study, but we'll always be up for a chat, a beer or a shared meal at home in the evenings.

We are all huge culture and nature lovers and we are all either from Melbourne, or have lived in Melbourne for many years. If you need tips for exploring this city, you are definitely in the right place!
