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.
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.
