The Space

The only house in the street so its nice and quite... close to trams, buses and train or a 15 min walk to the CBD of Melbourne.... cant get much better than that.

Our house is an older style melbourne house tucked away from the main roads but close enough to feel like your part of the action Your room is large and has a window that lets in heaps of natural light, a very comfortable queen size bed, tabel, a big old chair for siting and reading one of the meany books in you room and a chest of draws and room to hang clothes.

We have a cosy sitting/living room with a tv, dvd and fire place.

The main room of the house is the dinning room with a large table that can seat 12 people easily. We are food mad so if its food you are in melbourne for we are the people for you...

The kitchen has a great big window that looks out over the backyard and the pots of herbs you can feel free to use. The kitchen is well equipped for all your cooking needs and more.
We supply a bit of breaky and tea/ coffee and juice, but some of melbourne best coffee shops, restaurants and bars are just up the top of the hill in funky fitzroy/collingwood.

The bathroom is large with windows over the back yard.the room is ewly built and had a toilet, bath/shower and washing machine and dryer.

The backyard is fantastic and has a table and chairs making it ideal for the warmer months in Melbourne. Just sitting back enjoying the sun we have most meals out side in summer.

Parking is on the street out the front of the house but really walking and public transport are best. A weekly ticket for all public transoprt is about 30 dollars.

We work long days and some nights so the house would feel like your own... we also have a friendly dog. We are pretty relaxed and happy to share meals if your around when we are eating.

Guest Access

Our house guest have access to all the house and all cooking and cleaning stuff and well as the back yard and tv.

Interaction with Guests

We are pretty happy to share a beer in the backyard and a meal from time to time, we both travel a lot and love to meet new people.

Collingwood is one of the cool Melbourne neighbourhoods will all you need and more: art, live music, shopping strips, restaurants, cafes, bars and supermarkets and banks.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Had a truly amazing time in Melbourne. Sara and Lisa are great hosts. Very friendly, uncomplicated and generous with their time and advise. They live in a really cute place with great location. Clean, close to everything, but no traffic in the street, which makes it real quite. Ask them where to go for dinner. I don't thing I have ever met somebody who understands more about good food and where you can get it....

  • We spent a long week-end at Sara, Lisa and Action's home and we had such a nice and cozy time! The girls are very friendly, attentive and generous hostesses. We got every morning fresh bread, honey, cereals, fruits and good coffee (even better than home!). They gave us a lot of useful advices about great places to visit and things to do .
    The house is very well located; by foot just a couple of minutes away from the buzz of Smith & Brunswick Street (Fitzroy) and very close to the tram stop too.
    The room like the rest of the house is decorated with taste, it's quiet and very comfortable.

    In a word, great hosts, lovely dog, very comfy bed, perfect coffe. Would defenitly come back next time we visit Melbourne!

In walking distance of everything, close to Fitzroy and all the cafes and very originals shops. We had a great time, Sara and Lisa are great Hosts, we highly recommand their house.

  • Sara and Lisa were great to stay with, I stayed just under a week and felt very comfortable and welcomed by them. I had forgotten my phone charger and Sara kindly leant me hers all week, saving me having to buy another! The bedroom is as pictured and comfortable with good sized desk. Action is adorable. Strong coffee is great, wish I could have stayed longer and definitely will be back. The ladies were very friendly and made it a really nice stay. Great location for getting around Melbourne.

  • My sister and I really enjoyed our stay at Sara and Lisa's place. A great first Airbnb experience!

    March 2014
  • Sara and Lisa were great host - so easy going and welcoming. Action (dog) is great too! Their place is eclectic and homey and in such a great location. We loved staying here and would definitely stay again!

  • Living with the ladies has been an unforgettable experience. How we wish we could have stayed even longer! Great little house, super friendly hostesses, amazing dog, perfect location.
    Sara and Lisa gave us great advice to make the most of the Collingwood/Fitzroy experience.
    They are wonderful human beings.

  • We had an awesome time at Sara and Lisa's place! Their home is cozy and charming. Their dog (Action) was a gem and complimented the feel of home away from home.

    We are looking to relocate to Melbourne from Sydney and stayed at their home whilst job hunting. Sara took time to also talk to us about the different neighbourhoods in Melbourne for our relocation. We got advice from her about great places to eat and she even bought us some delicious pastries.

    Each morning our day started with complimentary organic bread, jams and a good cup of coffee.

    Would recommend this place to anyone who wants to feel at home whilst in Melbourne.

  • It was really good - Sara and Lisa are great and caring hosts. They are flexible and responsible and their house is just great to feel the real Melbourne taste.

    September 2013
  • Clean, that was a biggie. Great courtyard to just hang out. And I loved the little touches that Sara and Lisa added to make you feel at home. Books blankets nibbles and 1x friendly pet.

    And heading out, you were always only a few blocks from the buzz of Smith St. Or if you were venturing further, live music in Fitzroy. All that for a ten buck cab fare. Bargain.

My partner Lisa and I love work and live for the food life style of Melbourne, living in Collingwood we can walk or catch a tram to most of our fav places. Our house is a relaxed environment that we share with good friends and family and our much loved dog "Action". Melbourne is our home but we like to travel and have used Air BNB a number of times all over the world. I hope you will enjoy all that our lovely city has to offer even the (email hidden)lbourne is famous for its weather.!
