John is an amazing host. He's good example for great host. If your planning to start your life in Melbourne, then this is the best place to be.. Its perfect for long and short stay. This place has all the facility and John has got most of the stuffs which will help you a lot. Location is close to everything, Train station 5 min walk,super market and small shopping zone where you get almost everything. by train it is about 30 min to Melbourne central. Also this is located in one of the best suburbs of Melbourne. I would stay if needed in future and also recommend this place to other travellers. Thanks for hosting us.

John's place is in a quiet and nice neighbourhood. You can park your car easy. The train to the station is on a 5 min walk, it takes 30 minutes to the city centre. John is very interested in what you do, what time you are at home and how you behave in his house. We stayed four nights at his place, but we didn't feel home. He was all the time around in the living room, thats why we just stay in the sleeping room. For us as a young couple, wouldn't recommend this place to young people who want to have some privacy. We are for sure John has all good intentions and he is good for someone who wants to have deep conversations, but for us it was a little bit akward sometimes.

John's residence is located at a very convenient place. He is very friendly, helping and always wants to make a day more enjoyable. We felt at home living there. In fact, we developed a friendship that will remain for the rest of our lives.

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.
