About This Listing
My sweet little house is located in the trendy area of Yarraville, a relaxed inner city suburb with a village-like atmosphere, home to many young professionals.
The house itself is a 2 Bedroom Edwardian, with a great kitchen, spacious lounge, front cottage garden and cute back yard with vegie patch. The main living space has a comfy couch, air-conditioning and large TV for those nights when you want some down time.
The bedroom is the light-filled fully furnished master bedroom, with built in robes, queen size bed, and ceiling fan.
The Kitchen offers modern appliances, apart from a microwave (apologies if you are microwave dependent, but I have never cooked with one and prefer to keep it that way). You are welcome to use our washing machine with your own laundry powder, but as I am trying to remain environmentally responsible, I do not have a dryer. Shared Bathroom with myself and the other AirBnB-ers.
The area has great cafes, restaurants, the gorgeous Sun Cinema, and gift and clothing stores among the important basics like banks, butchers, bakers and groceries.
Yarraville is just 6.5kms from the city centre and can be accessed by a 15min train ride, the station is very conveniently located- 3min walk from my front door.
Away from home and missing your dog?? Tyson the affectionate Labrador resident in our home is more than happy to receive your affections! Tyson is a lovely dog, great with everyone young and old.
Dogs are very welcome - please contact me for conditions.
PLEASE NOTE: The garden is under reconstruction! So unfortunately, it is currently not in use.
Considerate and respectful thanks. You are welcome to borrow things while in the house, but please do not take them out of the house.
Broken/destroyed items will need to be compensated for.
Great house in a lovely part of town. Yarraville centre is only a few blocks away with all its cafes and the sun cinema - seemed like a really nice little neighbourhood. Transport into town was easy by train too. I only saw Lana the first night but she made me very welcome. Tyson, likewise. Would deffo recommend this place to anyone heading to melbourne.
Great home! Very Boho and just cozy to stay in! Tyson the dog is wonderful!!!
It was just lovely staying in Lana's unique Yarraville cottage, such a pretty place with a very soft and comfy bed and pillows. I also loved the tissues provided in the room. The bath and shower were really great and lovely big soft towels are provided, We had the house to ourselves a bit with Lana being out at work or staying out the back in the studio. So we could watch tv in the lounge room whenever we wanted. Lana is really a lovely person and her dog Tyson is also very lovable. The house is really close to the station, just a 5 min walk, and all the fantastic restaurants of Yarraville too. Really loved the leftover food from other guests that we could access in the pantry. Note there is no microwave in the house. We hope to stay again one day as we really enjoyed being in this lovely house.

About the Host, Lana
I am Lana from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. I only JUST realised that Airbnb had prefilled this profile for me with the following: I love reading, listening to music and watching my favorite shows on TV. Not necessarily true - I do indeed love reading, but watching TV is very very rare, even though I do have one.
A little about the REAL me: I am a puppeteer and performer, currently working part time at the State Library. I have Auslan and some old French skills I haven't used in a while, so if you are Deaf or French, we could communicate in either English or one of those languages! I am fairly social, but a complete workaholic, so you may find me always working in my studio, writing or other stuff.
I do love meeting new people and travellers, so am excited about meeting you and making you feel welcome - in between the workaholic business that is!
