The Space

Inner-City Melbourne is famous for its laneways and 'hidden' bars and it doesn't get much more inner city than this!

Sadly at the moment it's also noisy during the day time due to construction work across the street. During this time weekday rates have been reduced to $90, with weekly and monthly rates also reduced. If you intend to be out and about during the day - this will be great value for you!

This is one of two double bedrooms available in this 240 sq.m two-storey warehouse conversion. These rooms, which share one large bathroom, are well sized and fully furnished.
(Bedroom #1 can be booked via http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/307615?preview=true)

Guests have access to the whole house and all facilities - including a full kitchen, separate laundry, rear courtyard, large living and dining areas. Internet is available and a laptop PC is also available if needed.

There are hundreds of books to read and DVDs to watch - but you'll be far too busy - as the house is only minutes walk from Melbourne's best restaurants, bars, galleries, gardens and shopping; including the Victoria Market.

The house is occupied by myself and one very laid back dog called Roger, as well as any other guests. Please note that this is a 25 year old conversion in a 150+ year old building so not everything is 'shiny and new'; it is however very large and comfortable. Cheaper rates for weekly and monthly rental are available, just enquire through the booking form.

Trams and trains are right outside and the area is serviced by a number of airport bus services. There is no parking attached however there are two commercial parking facilities within 50 metres and several more within a block or two (be very careful if trying to park on the street in Melbourne, as there are tow-away zones which change during the day).

Guest Access


Interaction with Guests

I work from home and am around the house a fair bit at night.

The Neighborhood

The East or "Paris" End of the City is the sophisticated side of the inner city, home to some of Melbournes' best shopping, great bars and restaurants, as well as jazz clubs, theatres, parks and gardens - and some hidden city-living gems - like my house.

Getting around

Trams, trains and buses are all within a block, including the free tourist City Circle Tram. On street and garage parking is available at a number of nearby locations. Airport bus shuttle drops offs and pickups can be made to a number of nearby hotels, or even to the corner of the lane if you choose the right company (Starbus and Jetbus).

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Sharyn was a lovely host, so friendly and helpful in giving us tips on where best to go. Clean apartment, a joy to stay at.

  • Sharyn was a great host with lots of suggestion of what to do around town and in the area. The apartment is in a very convenient location and the room is spacious and cosy. As Sharyn said it was quite noisy due to the construction right in front of the house which was a bit tough in the early morning... but my friend and I stayed only for a night and probably slept too long, so it was no problem :)

  • Sharyn was a great and lovely host. Her appartment and the rooms are very clean and homely furnished. The location of the accomodation is very central and you can reach every point in the city very easily. I hope to stay there again when I will be back to Melbourne.

  • Sharyn and Roger were lovely hosts to my friend and I! Sharyn gave us good recommendations of where to go and her experience was very helpful especially when it rained out on us. The warehouse is located at a very convenient location, close to all the shopping areas and tram/train stations, making it super easy to get around. It might not be new, but it was definitely cosy, clean and comfortable. We had a great time in Melbourne thanks to the hospitality of Sharyn and Roger. P.S, this place is located no more than 2 minutes from League of Honest Coffee on exploration lane!

  • Sharyn was the most generous and helpful host one could ever ask for, she made sure we had everything we needed and knew exacty where we were going. The location is perfect and the house is beautiful (and still very cool despite the heatwave). Overall it felt just like staying with a friend in Melbourne!

  • Sharyn is a fun and open host, we had a great time chatting with her, she gave us useful local recommendations. Plus, she has a HUGE dvd collection!! Came in handy on a rainy day. The location suited us as we walked everywhere within 15 minutes yet could also catch the free tram to the Dockland markets, the stop literally 40 seconds away. Overall it felt like we were stayng at a friend's house, it was warm and homely & we had a great time.

Busy, laid back, shopaholic and very social. I holiday whenever I can afford to and travel internationally at least once a year. I spend a fair bit of time walking my dog and pretending to get fit. I am an IT consultant, so I work from home much of the time. Must have: Good wine, coffee, cigarettes, music, books (and ear plugs for sleeping) Can totally do without: reality tv, talkback radio, backpacking and bad food. Next holiday: Bali (again) My motto: Does it come in red? My other motto: Life is short, buy the shoes!
