Interaction with Guests
I usually contact the arriving guest within 24 hours to make sure everything is ok. I am available to answer any questions at any time. I live in France so I apologise for any delay due to time difference.
The neighbourhood is safe and a great place for cafés, shopping or the parks and gardens across the road including the Melbourne Cricket ground. Everyone who stays loves it.
There is a tram stop to the CBD 50m away or easy access to north south or east of Melbourne, via buses and Richmond station is 400m away.
Please note that any cooking odours particularly middle eastern cooking effecting the soft furnishings on departure or excessive cleaning fees will incur additional cleaning fees as assessed by my professional cleaning company.
Very nice apartment in a great location. Smooth and easy arrival and departure. Noise from the traffic is definitely loud and constant and took some time to get used to. Marilyn was very easy to communicate with. Noisy road but comfortable apartment.
Amazing location! Very cute and cozy apartment, that had everything we needed for our 4 week stay.
Tram stop around the corner, walking distance to CBD through wonderful parks, 5 min to MCG and Yarra River. Checking in and out was a breeze.
It is noisy at night, Punt Road is very loud, but we've got a good ear plugs. The only down side for us, was a bit small and uncomfortable bed.
All in all very pleasant stay!
Marilyn has gave full and clear instruction on how to get in the house. I was worried before as this is my first time to book an apartment through airbrb, however, out of my expectation, it was just so simple.
The location was wonderful. We are able to get use of the trams buses, and trains after 2 days. It was so convenient. I enjoy shopping with all the factory outlet jes a street upfront. Wonderful stay in Marilyn's apartment.
I will highly recommended to my friend or relatives that have chances to go travel in Melbourne in the near future.
The welcome, ensuring all was well and attention to detail was excellent - the location was covenant though being close to a major road and traffic junction meant that it was quite noisy at times. the accommodation was in very good condition and to a good standard with all essential items.
Thanks James and Tessa for your review and staying. Unfortunately the traffic has built up more in the last few years, however, the convenience to the city I guess it's to be expected. I will note about the phone. Someone took the previous one with an answer service and it has just been replaced by my cleaning staff since I was there in January.
A great place to stay. Great location, really cosy apartment, immaculately clean. Marilyn is super friendly and so eager to help out with everything.
Marilyn's place was great - close to busy Punt Rd but very sunny and nicely decorated. The kitchen had everything we needed, which was good as we like to prepare our own food. It was in a great location - close to Bridge Road shops and cafes; MCG and close enough for us to walk to work in the city through the park which we really enoyed. Also has 3 train stations within 0.5 km and a tram stop right on the corner. When we weren't walking it was less than 0.5 hr to work. Marilyn was a very good host, clear with the details and in regular contact to ensure we had everything we need. The apartment lived up to the description and photos and we would recommend it to anyone, particularly those like us relocating to Melbourne who needed a good homely base. Thank you Marilyn!
Thanks to Marilyn for clear instructions for entry, and for following up with us to make sure we had no questions. The apartment was super convenient being so central and with the carpark available just downstairs it was the perfect base for us to buy our car and organise ourselves ready to go travelling around Aus. We did struggle initially with the traffic noise, but soon got used to it, and it was only a small drawback because in all other respects the apartment was comfortable with all the facilities anyone needs.
Thanks Cynthia for your kind words. Yes the traffic takes a bit to get used to but after a few days I get forget about it too. Living in a small French village it's quite a change for me too, but I love the location and you can't have both in a big city. Continued good luck on your tour of Australia, safe travels and enjoy Australia's naturally beautiful landscape.

About the Host, Marilyn
I am a happy person living in rural France which I love. I came here 7 years ago to following my dream to live in France. My French cottage is a completely renovated 19th century old stone house in the Baie of Mont St Michel and another gite available for summer rental in Fontenay in a 300yo stone cottage.
I also have my Melbourne apartment in the CBD opposite the MCG which I have available for people coming to stay a short time in Melbourne or relocating for work. I love and enjoy both locations for the history and above all the people and the different lifestyles. I hope you enjoy your stay at one of my properties.
My life's motto?....I have many but most of all I follow this one:
Begin with what you are in no doubt of ... what makes you happy. Take the time to feel secure in your choices and the rest will follow.
