The Space

Queen size bedroom (2 walk in robes) - Listing (1) is for the Queen Bed - See also Listing (2) for Double bedroom (also with 2 walk in robes). (Please note with Air BNB each room has to be a separate listing - if this room is showing as booked look for my 2nd listing - it quite likely is available) Swimming Pool, Spa Pool, Sauna, Pool table, Bar room, 4 living areas, One of the living areas also has a comfortable double bed settee, this can become a third bedroom for short stays, 3 bathrooms, 5 minutes walk to lovely sandy swimming beach. TV in room - plus TV's in all the living areas and all the bedrooms .

Large kitchen with all the modern appliances - and also a large BBQ beside the pool - all for you for guests. Washing machine, dryer and clothesline available. Lots of outside garden furniture to use, also balcony with views (tables and chairs up there as well - even a telescope.

Two train stations nearby (Mentone & Cheltenham stations) both on the Frankston Line, 35 minutes to Melbourne central (and tennis stadiums). Quiet leafy street. Lots of safe street parking. Safe residential area.

30 minutes drive to GrandPrix at Albert Park.

High speed WI fi Internet and a Study area with computer and printer all provided for your own use - as in not a shared computer. Easy access to Wi Fi if you bring your own computer.

Though we have almost no plane noise the house is still close to Moorabbin airport and great for the pilots that upgrade their licenses there. I have accommodated many pilots from around the world who are here to upgrade their license's to be able to fly in Australia

Huge shopping centre - Westfield / Southland nearby. 3 Supermarkets within walking distance. Lots of cafes and restaurants close by in Mentone, Cheltenham & Parkdale. Walking distance to golf courses. 5 minute drive to Royal Melbourne Golf Course.

Close to Mentone & Beaumaris RSL.

I provide a welcoming home - bread, butter, jam and breakfast essentials provided. Use of lovely kitchen and huge BBQ.

There is one Brown Burmese Cat here - very quiet cat .

Please note - no children. The price is per room - then an extra $10 for the second guest in the room. If you are coming with older children I will consider this - but they will need a separate room and the cost for an extra room will apply.

My house is like living in a resort - pool, gardens, pool table, and bar. Sandy swimming beach within 4 minutes walk. Not so good if you want rapid transit into the city, the city is accessible ( 35 minutes) - but if you are coming for Melbourne's inner city night life try Prahran, South Melbourne, Port Melbourne, South Yarra & St Kilda

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Belinda exceeded our expectations of (email hidden)! Her warm and generous reception to us despite our late arrival from the penguin parade, made us feel at home and comfortable. Belinda was also really knowledgeable and helpful, when we were consulting her about our travel plans in Melbourne. She went the extra mile to help us during our stay and we really appreciated her kindness. We strongly recommend this place.

  • We had a week with Belinda and thoroughly enjoyed her company and all the facilities of her spacious and well equipped home. The breakfast choices provided were excellent; we only had to mention something and it was there next morning. I'm sorry we had to leave before the wonderful sourdough loaf was consumed!
    Trains and buses are within walking distance as are two shopping areas with a number of restaurants and eateries. A great choice we hope to repeat.

  • My husband and I really enjoyed our stay with Belinda. We stayed for 5.5 weeks and really loved our time in Mentone. We commuted on a daily basis to the CBD in Melbourne for work, which wasn’t a problem at all, as the connection between Mentone/Cheltenham is very good and it was really nice to return to quiet Mentone after a day’s work in the city. The house is very big and lovely. There is plenty of space, and everything you could possibly need. We really enjoyed using the swimming pool, pool table area and the barbecue. Belinda is lovely and very friendly. It was great to meet her and spend time with her; it was also lovely to share the occasional meal. We felt very welcome and at home here and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place to others! Thank you for everything Belinda! We would love to come back one day!

  • Belinda was an absolute delight to stay with; I can whole heartedly recommend her AirBnB room to anyone visiting Melbourne.

    Belinda's local knowledge is impressive, the AirBnB room is very comfortable and spacious, and her friendly attitude had me feeling right at home from my very first night.

  • Belinda is an excellent host.. Her and her adult son are friendly and engaging. Her place is very comfortable and pleasant. She (email hidden) with a separate pool house with extra bathroom. She has a well equipped large kitchen, and comfortable dining room, and family room. The house is located on a quiet, tree-lined street. Her place is walking distance to the bus stop and train stop. Lovely beach, restaurants and grocery stores are a short 15 minute walk. The beach is beautiful and the water was warm. We would stay with her again when we return to Melbourne.

  • The best host you can imagine, welcoming and lovely! I really enjoyed staying with Belinda. I felt so at home from the start and stayed longer than planned, as other guests before me also had done. The location is great if you want to be close to a nice sandy beach, the beach is just a 15 minutes walk from the house. But there's also a pool in the garden, perfect during hot days. Mentone is a nice calm area - I could definitely recommend anyone staying here.
