You are more than welcome to make yourself at home in either of the two common living areas and to share the kitchen and laundry facilities.

It would be great if you could provide some information about yourself when requesting a booking. It's good to know a little about you.

You will need to share with a very affectionate cat!

I look forward to meeting you!

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • After staying with the lovely Gloria we were extremely pleased that she excepted us at such short notice. Gloria's apartment is absolutely amazing! The room was perfect and ideally positioned with city views. The ensuite was also a great size and we enjoyed the lovely clean environment. Her cat, Binoche, was an absolute delight and very friendly. Gloria went far and beyond to make our stay as comfortable as possible and have expert advice on the area and how to get around. It was honestly sad to leave and we would re-book again without thinking twice!

  • Gloria is all you could wish for in Airbnb host! Generous, organised, caring, friendly and helpful. Her clean and comfortable apartment is wonderfully located, with fantastic views over Princes Park. I can't thank Gloria enough for acting quickly to help me find my purse which I lost on my way to her house! Highly recommended. Thanks for a lovely week, Gloria.

  • We were greeted very warmly by Gloria who immediately made us feel wonderfully welcome. The apartment is delightful with fabulous views around 180 degrees. It looks out over a lovely park. Parkville is relatively close to the city so we actually walked there from Southern Cross station and enjoyed the ambience of the neighbourhood. The apartment's furnishings and interior decoration are charming, tasteful and very modern with personal touches that indicate that Gloria has a multitude of interests and talents. The bedroom was extremely comfortable and had an interesting view from the large balcony window. The bathroom was elegant and spacious. Gloria has a gorgeous cat who made us feel as though we were old friends. We will certainly be pleased to visit Gloria again and stay in her lovely apartment.

  • Gloria is a supreme hostess...even to the point of giving me her own bedroom with en suite while I stayed. We'd had friendly emails before the actual stay so I knew what to expect; a warm intelligent woman who did everything to make my stay the best ever. She went above and beyond what I expected and I really felt at home. The apartment is in a terrific position, just a couple of minutes' walk to the tram that takes you into the heart of Melbourne CBD. The views are incredible and I had everything I wanted, right down to the cafetiere for my morning coffee. You pick a place because of how it looks and the location; you go back because of the hospitality. I'll be back!

  • Gloria was the perfect host for our all too short time together. Our every need was catered for and we enjoyed her company. The apartment has to die for views over the inner suburbs with secure parking and easy access to public transport. We have no hesitation in recommending it as a great place to stay.

  • We had a fab time with Gloria and her son Tristan. Home was as expected, clean and tidy. Very welcoming, accessible by tram to CBD, spacious, had some lovely evenings with the family. Highly recommend for future stays

  • I had a very pleasant couple of nights in Gloria's modern flat. Secure parking and close to the tram line into the city made it ideal for a short visit to Melbourne. Gloria went out of her way to meet me when I arrived and provide for breakfast. I would have no hesitation staying here again.

Professional. Enjoy theatre, music, reading, cycling, walking AND travelling - anywhere off the beaten track. Favourite travel destinations are Norway and Spain. I travel light and really enjoy staying with people, rather than impersonal hotels. I want to experience the day-to-day life of where I go, learn tips from the locals on what to do, where to go ... and generally, blend in and live like a local. As a host, I am friendly, open and very much enjoy getting to know people, who they are, what they do and sharing life's experiences.
