House rules
This place isn’t suitable for infants (0–2 yrs) and the host doesn’t allow pets or parties.
A room in our beautiful 2 bedroom flat in Prahran/Armadale. Our lovely suburb is both near and far enough from the world's most liveable city. It's accessible to everything you may need while also being in a quiet, peaceful suburb.

The space
Our two bedroom apartment is on a block of only two. We live with our gorgeous dogs, Poppy and Harriet.

We have a great yard, an abundance of on street parking, and an outdoor clothes line. We have a washing machine and provide washing powder too. We do have a dryer but prefer only to use it if absolutely necessary.

The apartment is fully furnished and equipped with everything you might need. We have a bookshelf stocked with various types of books including some travel guides and novels (though they're mainly cook books and food guides ;) There's also board games. If we don't have something you want to watch, you can certainly download it on WIFI (which is included) or use the Chromecast to stream your entertainment to the TV in the bedroom.

Your bedroom has a really comfy quality bed, fresh linen, desk, fan/heater, lamp, towels, a mini fridge, hanging space, a fan and a couple of extra blankets for the colder nights! When the temperature is extreme, we can provide an air conditioner if needed. Fortunately we have an old house which tends to stay quite cool on hot days.

We can provide all sorts of information in addition to the guidebook - just ask :)

Other things to note
Our dogs are gorgeous and ADORE people. They're big on affection and playing. They love people coming to stay and play. Please ensure you close your bedroom door if you don't want them in your space, and be sure to close the front door properly when leaving the house.

You are welcome to tea, coffee and milk from the fridge. If you are cooking, you can feel free to help yourself to basics like our spices, salt, pepper and oil.

Please be warned that this is our home, not a five star hotel and as such, you can expect occasional minor untidiness and even a bit of dust ;)

Location

Prahran, Victoria, Australia

Our neighbourhood is a leafy suburb just outside the CBD. We have access to public transport (3 different routes). We're in the more peaceful side of Prahran so you will need to use public transport to get around, but our neighbourhood is safe, lovely, and quiet at night.

During your stay
While we are often available and can be contacted on phone any time, we both work full time jobs and have social lives that mean we aren't always available. We don't expect you to stay in your room the whole time but please don't expect us to be constantly around.

We'll do our best to help with your travels and planning including local suggestions, provided we are available to do so, and would love to chat if/when it suits both parties :)
