For anyone needing more than just another place to stay in Melbourne this is a perfect location with the perfect host. Far enough away from the main city area to be quiet but close enough to get there quickly. Near the zoo and park area it is a wonderful place for walking around and exploring. The tram system here will get you just about anywhere else and there's one just a few minutes walk. My wife and I have stayed at a number of excellent B&B places Gloria's tops them all with the most comfortable, welcoming, enjoyable and friendly atmosphere making it indiscernible from staying in our own home.

I had a lovely time staying at Gloria's apartment over the weekend in Melbourne. Gloria is a very warm and caring person. She went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable and welcome. She took time in giving me a tour of the house and the apartment, and made sure that I was comfortably settled. She explained the tram routes and even gave me a spare myki card. I was lucky to get her suggestions on where to dine, what places to visit, and enjoyed some great conversation over tea and cakes that she had prepared. She was very flexible in working with my schedule, and left me to my own devices, if I needed to be. Her cat is a very handsome fellow, and we really hit it off from the get go. The house has beautiful 180 degree views of the neighborhood. It is a 15 min drive to the city center, and yet, is located amidst quiet and peaceful surroundings. There was an international fiesta going on in the parks close by while I was there, and I enjoyed the food stalls serving cuisines from different parts of the world. The apartment has all amenities that you would need. Gloria had kept her fridge stocked, and I enjoyed some great coffee and tea. The apartment has a garage parking which was convenient as I had a rental car during my trip. While the apartment and the neighborhood in itself is beautiful, what I remember the most from my short trip was Gloria herself, and what a great welcoming host she was!

I wish I never have to leave. Gloria is a life-time friend to make with. Gloria responded the appointment immediately and confirmed very fast. She in-timely contacted me for the check-in details, and welcomed me by the gate. The security pass procedures are clearly explained. She is so nice, generous, knowledgeable, and open-mind. She taught me how to prepared the breakfast, where to go for the grocery, food, and furniture, etc. Gloria offered several times to drive me to my destinations. While I insisted to go by myself, she borrowed her myki to me just in case mine myki balance is low. We had a lot really nice talks. Gloria always greet me when I got back from the work, which makes my first night after checking-out seems boring. The living room is breathtaking, and the bedroom is clean and tidy. There is even a tub in the bathroom, and the cat is really cute.

One of our travel highlights was staying at Gloria's place. She is the most welcoming, caring and sweetest person I've met. What was more important was that they accepted our Airbnb request and was accommodate us on such a short notice. Her apartment is beautiful and cozy. We were greeted during the evening by Gloria and her cat. Although I'm not a cat person, this cat was adorable and entertaining to watch. A washer was available for use but we didn't have the time to take advantage of this amenity. Also, her wifi works great. Gloria took it upon herself to go to the store prior to our arrival to buy breakfast such as muesli and raisin toast for us to eat in the morning. She made sure we ate breakfast and had our daily dose of coffee and tea. It was delicious! We wish to we had more time to enjoy our stay as we only were able to check in late and we checked out early in order to squeeze in a few more sightseeing before our flight takes off. Her home is as described and as pictured. Gloria is an amazing person and a great conversationalist. When we come back, we'll definitely stay here again!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Gloria's. The location was great - a short tram to the city + it was close to Brunswick where our friends were staying. The room is private and clean with an ensuite bathroom and small patio. Gloria was very generous and had some great breakfast stuff available. Thanks for having us in your beautiful home!

Gloria was a delight to stay with. She was communicative and more than generous from the start. I booked a single night just a couple of days prior to arrival, and Gloria was warm and accommodating. The room was clean and fresh, and I was offered a cup of tea and conversation within 5 minutes of arriving. Gloria is an interesting and kind woman, and I would highly recommend staying with her if you are an independent traveller looking for quiet and clean accommodation with an affectionate cat and fantastic host.

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.
Fluent in italian, happy to provide italian conversation classes for those of you interested in brushing up on your language skills!!!!
