Interaction with Guests
We live at the property and love to socialize, but as the house is huge all guests will have an option of privacy if they wish. There is a living room for each bedroom so space is never a problem.
The bus leaves out the front of our house and the local train station in down the road, we also provide bikes free of charge so guests can take them to the station or even into the city.
We do not allow pets unless specifically requested and agreed to beforehand.
We do not allow smoking inside the house, but do have an area for you outside.
If you loose the house keys we may charge for replacement of locks.
We offer pick up and drop offs to airport or city if available for only $35 AUD, but please plan ahead.
If you damage or break something you have to compensate or replace it if possible.
We do not want you to feel as a guest staying with us, but as a friend that lives with us, make yourself at home.
Only thing you can do wrong is not ask a question if you have one.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our home and city with you.

Everything is perfect!!!! We had Awesome memory with his house in our trip. THANX!!!!
A lovely place that Ryan and Rochelle have put a lot of thought and effort into. We had a great, relaxing stay and enjoyed Ryan's company and hospitality
Thanks for a lovely stay.
The house was clean and very comfortable.
Would recommend warmly!
We had a great stay at Ryan's beautiful apartment. Although the location was a little out of the way, for the price and the beautiful comfortable stay we had it was worth it and it was definitely convenient for us since we drove. Ryan made sure he was home when we arrived and gave us a great introduction to the house, orientations us. He also provided lots of information and recommendations that helped to enhance our experience of Melbourne. We had fun playing with their big friendly dog, Romeo. Their house is decorated with such great taste that I felt like I was living in a celebrity home. Would definitely come back if I could!
Ryan's place is an awesome one to hang out in. I didn't manage to use the facilities he offered due to my Great Ocean Road trip but it was nice to see a Jacuzzi, great contemporary designs of the house.
It also comes with all the materials you need to find your way around.
I can't say much about public transportation as I was driving but the house seem to be 15 - 20 minutes to get to the nearest supermarket. (Best is to rent a vehicle.)
Ryan was friendly, kind and very welcoming. I enjoyed my stay there!
Definitely a good place to stay in Melbourne.
Clean and comfy room. Coles supermarket and restaurants/take-away food are only 5 minutes drive from the house. The house is nicely decorated with lots of cool features, like outdoor spa, lounge area, and a bar! Too bad I only stay for a night.
Last but not least, both Ryan and Rhiannon are very friendly and welcoming! Oh, and they have a dog...who is also very friendly :)
Ryan was very welcoming and was a good host. When arrived at the house, everything was like the photo and he brought us to a mini tour around the house. In the room, there was also guides to help us get home and all. he also has a well behaved dog, romeo which was friendly. Ryan also helps us whenever we needed help in getting around .

Ryan and Rhiannon are your hosts
Ryan is a fashion designer and trained tailor, working from home.
Rhiannon also works in fashion as an account manager.
We both love movies, socializing with friends and enjoying everything Melbourne and life has to offer.
We recently completed out dream home and a large part of out dream was to be able to share it with others, keeping a fresh perspective on you surroundings is important, so you never forget to keep discovering. There is no better way of doing that than with friends from all over the world.
Ryan has lived 17 years in Norway and only came back to Australia when he was going to University.
Since then he has gained experience as a concierge, bartender etc. so between Ryan and Rhiannon you could not wish for better hosts.
