The Space

Gorgeous huge spacious private bungalow (self contained apartment) set in lush garden of fruit & vegetables with own entrance & BBQ, own kitchenette, bathroom, laundry facilities available, aircon & gas log fire, Upstairs bedroom & living with flat screen TV, DVD player, IPod Doc station, Wifi internet. All linen, kitchen utensils provided. Bathrobe, slippers, soap, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel and hand cream, hairdryer makes it very comfortable and very private. Parking is available in free public carpark. Train & buses, beach, lots of shopping, cinemas, restaurants & cafes all walking distance, easy commute to city centre (25 mins) & airport (45 mins), car rental available around corner.

I'm a kind & generous host, living in the house next door, so able to assist when in need. You will have everything you need to look after yourself, but if you'd like company, I am able to cook gourmet meals upon request, and also willing to arrange some sightseeing.

The Location is about 1 hr drive from some of the best wineries in Australia;
Philip Island (where you can see Penguins & Seals on the beach) is about 1hr away; Magnificent Mornington Peninsula less than 1 hr drive, helps make Highett a fabulous location, with so much to do.

Living next door with my Jack Russell dog, we will share the garden at times.
I'm into sailing from Sandringham Yacht Club on a 51ft yacht, so if you're into adventure, I can arrange for you to come along with some notice.

I've travelled extensively and lived for periods of time overseas, so have many stories to tell. My work keeps me busy as an author and business consultant.
You can be assured of having a delightful stay with as much privacy or interaction as you choose. I'm looking forward to welcoming you (website hidden). If you ever want to share dinner, my friends say I'm a great cook. Some of the meals I like to cook are:
BBQ Steak & Sausages with home grown salad
Lasagne with salad
Spaghetti Bolanese with garlic bread and salad
Chillie Beef with salad
Ragout Beef in Tomatoe Sauce with Potato Gnocci
Thai Green Curry and rice
Lamb Roast with Roast Potatoes, Pumpkin and seasonal green vegetables
Beef Mussamum Curry with potatoes and vegetables
Korma Curry (vegetable, beef or chicken) with rice, raitia and pappadams
Roast Pumpkin & Spinach Pizza with cashews, fetta, fresh herbs, roast garlic & onion
Mexican Beef Tortillas with sour cream, grated cheese and salad
Baked Leg Ham glazed with pineapple and cherries, gravy and roast vegetables
Stuffed home grown tomatoes

and lots of other things too.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Highly recommended: the bungalow is very clean and spacious. Supermarket and public transport within walking distance. Leigh's hospitality was great. And I can confirm that she is a great cook.

    Response from Leigh:

    Thijs, thank you for your kind appraisal, especially about my cooking. Also it was such a lovely surprise to receive the beautiful bunch of flowers from you on the day you left. It was totally unnecessary, but so nice to be appreciated for the extra effort given. Thanks for being a wonderful guest.

  • Leigh was a very accommodating host. She expended the extra effort to ensure everything about my stay was great. Her bungalow was clean, neat and set in a peaceful environment. Also, she responded promptly to my needs and even showed me the Melbourne beach area on several occasions as an informal tourguide. Lastly on a personal note, Leigh was friendly, outgoing and was pleasant to converse with. .

    Overall, I highly recommend Leigh's place if you are interested in staying around the Highett area of Melbourne.

  • Leigh is a very professional yet no less generous host I have come to know. Beyond the basics, my stay was made ever more eye opening and enjoyable with her suggestions and arrangements on the things to do and see in the south of Melbourne.
