Kate and Mal are very nice and friendly host. The room is really beautifully decorated and thoughtful equipped with food and drink, even the DVDs and nice little gift. It was our first airbnb experience and we all felt like at a friend's place which is memorable. We strongly recommend people to stay a night at Kate and Mal's.
we ja da very Nixe and comfortable stay with Kate and Mal. The room is as described and breakfast included. They were very welcoming and enjoyed our short stay in Mornington. In summer for sure even better so close to beach.
Kate and Mal were very welcoming and friendly. Their house was warm in a very cold winter. The bed was very comfortable that i felt asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow. We loved their place so much and it looked even better than the pictures. They were very generous to provide us breakfast in the room. They were very informative on places of interest in mornington. Overall we enjoyed staying with them. Highly recommended.
Kate and Mal were gracious and welcoming and we enjoyed our visit and stay. Sadly, we only stayed in Mornington for one night. Located in a quiet neighborhood, the room was comfortable and clean. We met Babette, the gorgeous ragdoll cat. I would recommend this Airbnb as a great value and experience. Thank you, Kate and Mal.
We loved staying with Kate and Mal. They were very warm and hospitable, and ensured that we felt comfortable and welcome in their place. Babette's such a stately princess and we were glad to meet her as well. It's a pity that we only spent one night with Kate and Mal as we would have loved to spend more time interacting with both of them. Thank you for such a great experience! =)
Kate & Mal were very warm and welcoming and the room is comfortable, clean and warm. Their cat Babette is beautiful and inquisitive and likes to know what's going on! Great location if you want to explore the Mornington Peninsula from the comfort of a family home.
Very pleasant experience! We highly recommend this place for Kate and Mal hospitality and the great location. The Mornington Peninsula is a fantastic place to visit.
