Karen and Jim's home is a real home - a place where you can relax, socialise or work. Everything that's great about Airbnb is in this home: welcoming hosts, a lovely family, a clean and comfortable room, public transport not far away, a dedicated space to store food, a shelf in the fridge - and all in a quiet, relaxing suburb of Melbourne full of trees and birdsong, with a gorgeous lake literally 5 minutes walk away. I have met other lovely Airbnb people on their way through Melbourne here too. There's nothing to improve - it's perfect.

Staying with the Williams was an awesome experience, very friendly and beautiful house. It was nice to come to Australia and stay with a family, make lots of new friends. Will miss them and will hope to see them again. Thanks team Williams!

Lovely family to stay with in a great location, easy access onto Freeway and Westgate Bridge for quick trips into city, with Newport and Williamstown eateries nearby. The kids are super friendly and well behaved, the hosts are welcoming, and in keeping with the friendly theme the cat will want to snuggle - but watch out he dribbles!

Very welcoming house, the room was perfect and the street nice and quiet so slept well. the bed is firm which was ok for me :) very friendly family but not in your face if you want space. It was a perfect place for staying while working in the area, great to be close to newport lakes for a run after work.

What can I say more.. Well it was the third time at the Williams' and I felt like home. Wonderful family, very caring and considerate, with a joyful dog "Otto" to play with. Definitely my place to stay at in Melbourne.

Hey future guests and friends,

Thanks for taking the time to read our profile.

We are a regular Aussie family with a home that many tell us has a relaxed and welcoming vibe. Which is GREAT because that’s how we want you to feel when you stay with us.
You need to know that our home is not a sterile hotel, or a grungy hostel or even a display home. There is the normal detritus of modern family life with children. But that aside you can be assured your environment will be clean, your linens fresh and your room cleaned and dusted before you arrive. There can be a lot of laughter, love (the occasional tantrum) in our home, and you are welcome to share in that, or to have privacy and limited interaction if that is your preference. We will be led by you. ☺

Above all we just want you to be comfortable!

We love keeping fit. Enjoying time with friends. A good red wine or a craft beer AND of course travelling!!

We have been having airbnb guests for 5 years now. It has been truly rewarding and we have met remarkable people from every continent, many we are still friends or in contact with.

We look forward to meeting you too ☺.
