Truly unique inner city oasis only one block from Swanston Street. This is a queen bed room in a three bedroom, 2.5 bathroom warehouse conversion, with its own backyard and direct street access.
Take advantage of the cheap off season pricing!
It doesn't get much more inner city than this!
This is one of two queen bedrooms available in this 240 sq.m two-storey warehouse conversion that even has it's own backyard. 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, large rear courtyard, large living and dining areas. WiFi 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 30 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, and should apply automatically 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).

Interaction with Guests
I work from home and am in the house during the day, as well as after hours.
The East or "Paris" End of the City is the sophisticated side of the inner city, home to some of Melbourne's best shopping, great bars and restaurants, as well as jazz clubs, theatres, parks and gardens - and some hidden city-living gems - like my house.
Trams, trains and buses are all within a block, including the free tourist City Circle Tram. Mykis are available for guests use. 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.
Rooms are a maximum of two people - no additional guests or overnight visitors are allowed. Please exercise a reasonable level of discretion when coming and going - always ALWAYS lock the front door (even if you are just popping in and out) and please don't wake up up the neighbours (or me).
I smoke - so you are welcome to smoke out on the back patio.
I have a dog - he likes everybody and will happily take you for a walk around the park if that takes your fancy - otherwise you may comfortably ignore him other than not leaving the front door open.
No meals are provided however you have full use of the kitchen and all appliances etc. There is a supermarket across the street if you wish to buy groceries and there is space for you to store your own food. You are welcome to use the tea, coffee etc and condiments which are in the kitchen and also the laundry facilities and supplies.
All linen and towels are provided, there is a hairdryer in the bathroom. Please note that the bathroom is shared between two bedrooms - so if you are not the only guests - please be considerate in your use.
Cleaning fee will only be charged in the case of serious mess (if you haven't cleaned up yourself). I won't cry if plates and glasses get broken - however replacement costs apply for broken appliances and furniture and any replacement keys required.
Have stayed here for 3 weeks. Sharyn is a great host.She made me feel staying at my home. Here is convenient for me to work and visit around Melbourne. The dog Russel is also a good boy. Thanks Sharyn so much :)
awesome experience. Sharyn's a great guest. she provided all the important info and warmly welcomed us. her dog is lovely and well-behaved. such a pity that we stayed so short. otherwise we would have liked to enjoy her beautiful and clean terrace and everything. greatly recommend!
We really enjoyed our stay at Sharyn’s place. She was very welcoming and always helpful concerning our renting activities in Melbourne. We felt a bit like living in a shared flat with everything you need. Hayward Lane is a perfect place to explore the CBD and suited our needs perfectly. Facilities are a bit old but very comfortable and kept clean. Bed has good firm mattress, which we loved. We had some good talks and enjoyed Sharyn’s wisdom and knowledge. We will definitely visit each her in our future stay in Melbourne. BTW, the dog Roger is lovely! Highly recommended!
Living @ Sharyns' in Melbourne was a very good experience. She is a great host and made us feel welcome. There were instances when she went out of her way to assist us; it was greatly appreciated. We stayed with Sharyn & Russel, the pet dog, for 4 days....sharyn's place is all about location location & location in cbd area.
Sharyn was a nice, caring, and helpful host and gave me good tips for my trip.
Also I found it convenient to stay at Sharyn's place, as the location was at the very center of the city and public transports such as trams and trains were close as well.
Thanks a lot Sharyn. Take care :-)
We had a relaxed few days in Melbourne staying at Sharyn's place. She is a lovely host who is willing to help you with anything you may need. The location is awesome, its easy to get around the city on foot and the trams aren't far away either! We would be more than happy to stay there again if we return to Melbourne.
I stayed for one week at Sharyn's place. She was most friendly and welcoming! I felt very quickly that I was like at home. The place is very well located in the heart of Melbourne and everything can be done walking. The room and the bed were good, as from the description. I slept very well until the rubbish truck comes in the morning around 6:30am. Apart from that, I believe this was a wonderful experience and Sharyn is a great host!

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!
