Bright beautiful well appointed loft in a quiet neighborhood close to downtown. Grocery store, tram and train are all close by if you are visiting without a vehicle. There is plenty of room, we're really friendly and welcome any and all to our home!
Your large loft room is in a home that is family, and alternative lifestyle friendly.
Very close to tram (250M) and a 15 minute straight shot to downtown, Victoria Market, Flemington Racecourse or Showgrounds or a 12 minute walk to the train station to downtown.
Your modern renovated home stay includes full use of the kitchen facilities, shared bathroom and large backyard with BBQ and great sunning privacy. We even have a few bikes and gear that you are welcome to borrow.
The Loft bedroom has a lovely queen bed and matching dresser, futon-pullout couch as a second bed, giant screen for movies with surround sound, 2 sunroof windows that completely open or black out depending on your needs, heating/AC independent of the rest of the house, and an office style desk for your use. It is an open loft with NO door but has privacy as it is not viewable to the rest of the house.
We are located in a quiet neighborhood but close and easily accessible to downtown by tram or train. We are a 3 minute walk to a grocery/liquor store, 12 minutes to large grocery store (Woolworths), cafes and restaurants on Racecourse Road. There is plenty of safe street parking or our large driveway to use, and there are parks all around us.
We are an international household (2 adults plus a 6 yr old daughter), hailing from Canada and the US. We enjoy shared meals and good company and also respect people's privacy and desire for quietude. We also host Airbnb guests in a separate room so we may be feeling very worldly! Monthly and longer term guests are welcome as well.
Trams and trains straight to Flinders are in very close proximity so travel is very easy in the city.
Other Things to Note
We have two lovely kitties!
You have all access to kitchen and common areas of the house and please respect our clean environment (aka Please clean up after yourself in shared areas). No additional night guests other than what has previously been agreed upon.
Small functions or hosting of meals is allowed as long as its been previously agreed upon.
Quiet hours are 9PM-7AM (adjustable depending on any previous agreements)
Family friendly behaviour is expected as we do have a child in the house as well as other Airbnb guests, but we also have great tolerance for alternative lifestyles.
Please feel free to use all the facilities and kitchen and please make sure to leave them as you found them after each use.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Erin, Adam, and Michela. They were gracious host and very kind. It made it a little bit better that Erin was originally from Canada (as are we). We arrived very late the first night, but they were nice enough to let us in around 130am. The loft is very spacious and quite private. Definitely a place we would go back to stay. Our time was short, as we spent most days wondering around Melbourne, but when we could spare a little time we enjoyed chatting with them. Thanks again!!!!
It was a good place, but there were some things we didn't like. The most problem was that we hadn't got a door so we had to wake up every morning at 7 am, that's because Michaela is a early bird and loves to play loud:-)
Unfortunately nobody cleaned up the kitchen or the bathroom so most of the time it was dirty:(
All in one it is a very nice and helpful family!!! Thanks for the nice Dinner :)
The room was nice, Erin and her family were lovely.
Children like to wake up early ;)
My partner our two kids and I enjoyed our stay at Erin's. Her daughter and Adam were the perfect hosts and very reasonable to our kids. The house was very clean and location was good considering it wasn't in city centre.
I recommend the place to anyone, specially families with kids.
Erin & Adam are friendly, interesting & relaxed hosts and with Michaela too it is a nice family atmosphere. The loft room is much more than just a room to stay in; it has sitting, sleeping and study areas and has lots of natural light. The surround sound, projector and screen are a nice touch......but unnecessary when the weather is good having so much to do and see locally!
It is situated in a fantastic location for transport, one reason why I made this choice needing to use the airport and get to the CBD regularly. Quick and easy road access for the airport and very close to a tram stop for a fast journey into the city. I enjoyed my stay and learnt a lot from talking to Erin and Adam, thank you.
We had a very pleasant stay at Erin' s home. Adam, her husband, and Michaela, her little daughter, made us fell very comfortable. Our daughter was very happy playing with Michaela and already miss it. The room is very comfortable and also it is possible get downtown by tram easily.
If we come back to Melbourne, for sure we will stay there again!
Clean, mostly comfortable accommodation, quite close to a tram line in an old neighborhood of the inner suburbs. The Pimm family are interesting and appealing people. We would like to stay with them again on another visit to Melbourne.
My only criticism is poor design of fixtures in the bathroom, which made bathing/showering less than comfortable.

We are a family of 3 with a fabulous 6 yr old daughter and living the dream here in Melbourne AU.
Erin is a Commercial Photographer and Adam does IT and Michaela just LOVES to dance and bounce on her trampoline! We have a small garden, love to ride our bikes, camping, festivals and anything fun!
We look forward to sharing space with you and talking about arts, music, and gathering for social/community events.
