About this listing
Comfortable, relaxed house, a home away from home!
The atmosphere is relaxed and easy going. You can make yourself at home for two days, or two months, or however long you wish to stay. This is a quiet house though we do like to share the occasional conversation or drink, or even a meal if the mood strikes.
Your room has large French doors that open out onto a private porch. It has a bed, a wardrobe with mirror, plus a writing table. There are plenty of sheets and towels. It is right next to the shared bathroom.
You are welcome to make yourself at home in the kitchen as long as you clean up. There is plenty of room in the pantry to store food, as well as in the fridge. Feel free to relax on the comfy couch in the lounge room, watch a dvd, or TV, or use the bar-b-que in the back yard.
Interaction with Guests
Guest's privacy will be respected at all times. If you need information and tips on where to go, I am more than happy to help with suggestions.
This is a great neighbourhood – it is quiet, yet close to so many things. High Street, Northcote (hip bars, cafes and craft stores) are a 10 minute walk east; Sydney Road (ethnic delights and great food) is 8 minute drive west; city is 30 minutes by tram or train.
Public transport is super convenient with a choice of trams, trains, buses plus walking and bicycle paths. Parking on the street is free. Even the airport is not too far away at 25 mins by car or taxi!
Other Things to Note
Self service breakfast available (cereal, toast, tea, coffee) for short stays of less than a week. Healthy options available.
Respect for our home, for each other, and the environment.
Please, no smoking anywhere on the property.
Keep the space clean and tidy as you would your own home. This especially applies to long term stays and could include such things as unpacking the dishwasher, putting out the rubbish, emptying the compost, occasional vacuuming etc...common sense!
I had a lovely time staying at Eleni's. The house is very lovely and my room was light, comfy and spacious. It's in a quiet area but is still very conveniently located. Eleni immediately made me feel welcome in her home and was very helpful. She went out of her way to point out important places near the house such as the nearest shops and bus and tram stops when I arrived. She also does beautiful paintings that are hung up around the house. I very much enjoyed staying here and would recommend it to anyone. Eleni is very kind and easy going in general and a great host!
I had a great time staying at Eleni's.
Eleni is a very friendly and accommodating host, she took me to shops and cafes and concerts. I also had a premium Aussie barbeque at Eleni's.
This is a very peaceful place at nights and beautiful at days.
I definitely recommend staying at Eleni's fabulous house.
A very pleasant place to stay. Eleni was welcoming, helpful and considerate: I enjoyed that muesli, and your special yoghurt! The room was good, with one window looking on to the garden and another shielded by a curtain to diffuse the warm sun. Everything was fine; if you could move Thornbury a bit closer in, it would have been perfect!
Eleni was a friendly and interesting host - she made me feel welcome and included in her home. She has plenty of information about the local area and Melbourne in general. My room was spacious, had a desk and good wifi signal.
The house is located on a quiet street. Shops are about 15 mins walk and trams about 10 mins. The trams go straight to the city so it is a simple journey.
I have no hesitation in recommending Eleni's home.
Unfortunately the listing photo was not accurate. The room consisted of two single beds not the double bed. I was disappointed as I specifically searched for a room with a double bed. Eleni was polite and efficient. The house was very clean and tidy. For the price it was very good, but I would of liked a double bed.
Eleni was welcoming and accommodating. I had a friend join me in the stay at the last moment and it was no hassle for Eleni. I felt at home and comfortable in her home. Breakfast was lovely too! I'd happily stay with Eleni again.
Eleni is a very friendly and kind, flexible and warm person. I felt at home immediately. She has a lovely house in a quiet environment. I slept in a spacious room. I can recommend this address in Melbourne North to everybody.
