The neighborhood

The Neighbourhood

Coburg (like any Inner Northern suburb in Melbourne) is a fantastic place to live and stay, and has really held onto a wonderful multi-cultural vibrancy - in our educated opinion, it's the side to be on!
You only need to read our reviews to see how much our guests love the neighbourhood and it's easy access to the city!

Coburg is home to the lightest, fluffiest falafel in all of Australia at one of the many reasonably priced Middle Eastern food shops.

The Post Office Dining Hall/Cafe and Hotel (see pics at end of listing) is stylish, beautiful and just around the corner (a great place to have dinner, listen to some fantastic live music or sit in the awesome leafy beer garden with a pint.

There is a lovely cafe just around the corner called 'True North' which we love and it's quintessentially 'Melbourne'.

The 'Eastern Block' and 'East Timor' are 2 other great cafes nearby. There are new cafes popping up everywhere at the moment! The quirky Woodlands Hotel is also nearby and well worth a visit.

And then, well Sydney Rd and Lygon street are fantastic and well worth a tram ride in when you're on your way to the city with lots of stop-off points! Be sure to visit Green – a cafe at the end of Sydney Rd in Brunswick for some amazing home-cooked goodness at cheap prices or Ray for breakfast.

Also nearby is CERES, an environmental park with a cafe, farmers markets/stalls, a fantastic nursery and community vegie patches/initiatives.

There is also a COBURG FARMERS MARKET. It's on every 2nd and 4th Sat of the month at Coburg North Primary School - lots of awesome produce there.
Our neighbour, Brunswick (we are nearly on the border) is full of trendy cafes, shops, pubs, bars, restaurants, parks etc

Our house has excellent fast access to transport of all kinds. Firstly, trams and trains are literally just around the corner, making it super easy to get into the city or other places along the way such as Brunswick (neighbour), Melbourne uni, the hospitals, Queen Vic markets for fresh food or the Royal Melbourne Zoo!

In addition, right behind our house is a bike track which goes into the city (with great stop-off points along the way like Lux Foundry.

The other option is to take a walk down Sydney Rd, along Merri Creek or around the beautiful Coburg Lake.

Whether you're into op-shopping, unique, independent fashion, boutique wine bars, great pubs/live music, restaurants, coffee, fabric, gardening, vintage, jewellery, bridal wear, Melbourne-made craft, the zoo, or record stores, there's something for everyone on this side, if not on Sydney Rd, Lygon, Nicholson or Brunswick Street, than tucked away in little lane ways and unexpected places that no travel book will know about.

Getting around

Public transport is easily accessible from the house. The closest train station is Coburg, which is a 1-2 minute walk away near the shops. The closest tram stop is also a 1-2 minute walk away and located on the corner or Sydney Rd and Reynard (or Munro Street). There are also bus stops nearby.

Great location, we used both houses for our group of 12. Back house is near tracks to a commuter train that keeps running at night but we got use to the noise. Ramona was always quick to respond to any questions we had. We enjoyed our stay very much.

The properties are beyond beautiful. We booked both the front and back house. They were everything we needed for our large family gathering and more. Fresh bouquets of flowers, luscious manchester, and fantastic beds. The outdoor furniture was the perfect size for our evening family dinners and passing the night away catching up. Ramona was a fantastic host, always quick to respond and very accommodating. We couldn't have been happier. We will absolutely be back to stay in these stunning houses. Thank you, thank you, thank you

The houses were clean and tidy and located in a relatively central location, an easy Uber into the CBD. The houses were perfect for large family’s or groups of friends on vacation. An excellent stay and would definitely return.

Thank you for hosting our family so comfortably in your home. the 2 houses were well placed to provide space and privacy yet still enabled us to all be together. Transport was very accessible and the local shops were colourful and cosmopolitan.

The house is absolutely beautiful, very modern, clean, and very well equipped, with ample space for everyone. There was a lovely barbeque area outside there were 13 of us, and we had one of the best holidays we have ever had in this wonderful home.

Great accommodation for a big group! 13 of us stayed very comfortably, plenty of bathrooms and 2 x kitchens come in handy if you need them. Although out of the city it was only a short and cheap cab ride and plenty of good local options for food and drink. We will be back for sure. Thanks Ramona and family.

We are an energetic and fun family of 8. Yes that's right - 8! I am a lab scientist and each one of us has an interesting and different profession and passion - whilst different in our work lives you'd struggle to find a more tight-knit and welcoming family!

There's Sam, Samantha, George, Fred, Rim, Dani, Steph and myself and we are very proud to offer our property as luxurious guest accommodation.
