I stayed at Melissa's for 2 nights and everything went great. I didn't actually meet Melissa since she was away (hence I was in her room) but she had everything prepared before I got there. She was nice enough to leave some toiletries for me and a nice welcome note with tips on…

Beautiful, cozy house and rooms in a great location. We didn’t meet Melissa in person, but communication was easy straight forward and arrangements flexible which was great for us. Really appreciated the printed out suggestions for the area and the Myki cards.

I'm a nature-loving, novel-reading, coffee-appreciating, visual-arting, social justice-minded, vegan office worker! Relaxed and respectful, with a long history of happy share housing. I look forward to connecting and sharing!
Interaction with guests
This is our home in Melbourne and we're a busy bunch of students and workers. In the evenings we wind down after long days out, so we generally cook and chat and then retire to our rooms! We're happy for you to be as self-contained and quiet or as chatty as you like.
