What you see is a bright room in a 2 bedroom unit. I have hosted overseas students for ten years, and enjoy people's company.
Below is what I offer :
- Queen size bed with built in wardrobes
- ducted heating throughout
-WiFi throughout the unit
- Mt Waverley railway station is 500 metres away and train takes 25 minutes to the city
- adequate shopping near the train station with two medium sized supermarkets, fast food outlets and restaurants
- two buses pass the door, the 733 going south to Monash Uni, north to Deakin Uni and Box Hill, 734 going west to Glen Waverley.
-Washing machine and a clothes line in the back yard.
The unit is well suited for those who want to attend Monash and Deakin University
No smoking indoors
Consideration for others in the unit
John was very accomodating, friendly, and fun to stay with. The place was very well kept, clean, and quiet. John was very respectful of my privacy and was always very polite and considerate. John's place is outside of the city but very close to public transportation including the train line about 5 minutes away and a bus stop directly across the street. I would highly recommend staying here if you want to be a bit outside of the city and enjoy the peace and quiet of the suburbs but still want to access the city easily.
John gave me a warm welcome when I arrived in Melbourne after a fatiguing journey. House is easy to find and very close to the Glen Waverley train station (7 min walk), from where I travelled into the city every day (30 min). He helped me out on the first day showing where to get food and where I could find banks, shops I needed, what buses to take etc. The first evening he even tried to help me stay awake with interesting conversations so I would not give in to my jetlag. He is always open for a nice conversation.
You are able to cook at his place and there is also some room in the fridge for you.
The room is not very big, as the bed takes most of the room, but it was perfect for what I was looking for. From here I was able to start getting around Melbourne and find a place to live for the rest of my stay in Melbourne.
It is quite desired for a short stay. A small car can be parked on premise. Excellent location and very easy to get access to public transport.
John was a lovely host, so friendly and good for a chat and always giving great advice! The room I stayed in was perfect it had a nice comfy bed with plenty of room. Where I was staying was only 9 minutes from the train station or buses which was so handy!!! I loved staying with John I felt so relaxed he made me feel at home! Next time I'm down I'll definitely stay with John! Thank you John
The room has a large bed and closet and is enough to accommodate two people. Less than 10 minutes walk to the railway station and shops including grocery stores, chemists and restaurants. The host is so kind and helpful.
John is a good friendly host. His place is well equipped with facilities for us to do some cooking, which we appreciate for the 2 weeks long stay.
His home is near to the train station, supermarkets and restaurants, that makes it very convenient for us to travel and have access to amenities.
He was very accommodating to our needs and we did enjoy our stay here.
John was a great host,he made me feel at home and even took me to the markets. He has a loving nature and is very easy to get along with.
I would definitely stay with him again when i come back to Melbourne next year
I am a gentle soul who enjoys life, goes ballroom dancing, attends church, interested in self development and finance plus learning dowsing. Live in the leafy suburb of Mt Waverley in Melbourne, about 500 metres to the railway station, restaurants and shops
For ten years before my wife passed on we hosted overseas students who were in Australia to learn English before going to University. Sometimes talking with the students seemed almost as good as travelling to their country
I believe its important to tell the truth and try to do it all the time. I do not discriminate and expect guests to treat everyone in the house with courtesy and respect.
