Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Great location, clean and tidy. Not much more you can ask for ... oh and it doesn't cost a arm and leg either.

    January 2014
  • Great location 2 streets away from the G. Apartment was very comfortable and had all the amenities required, Haydn was a great host, easy to deal with and communicated well.

    December 2013
  • I couldn't have asked for a better first experience with Airbnb. Haydn was incredibly helpful and organised throughout our stay. The pre-arrival property guide was useful before and during our stay; giving us directions and different travel routes/options from the airport to the accommodation, and providing information of the local area. Our late arrival was easily managed, and we were given instructions, which were quick to follow. The apartment was clean, tidy and well-furnished. A large amount of effort can be seen to have been spent on this homely space -- especially the new kitchen bench-tops! Haydn courteously contacted us the day after we arrived to ensure that everything was going smoothly. It was an absolute pleasure staying at this apartment, and we would recommend it to all our family and friends! Thanks so much Haydn :)

    November 2013
  • Good location and very comfortable apartment.

    November 2013
  • Haydn was a great host. He was helpful and prompt in replying to queries, and checked in to make sure everything was going smoothly. His unit was everything we hoped it would be. I highly recommend it as a great base for staying in Melbourne.

    November 2013
  • We stayed at Haydn's for 2 weeks in October, and highly recommend the place. Location is perfect: close to Fitzroy gardens and CBD, close to public transport, and at the same time it's quiet. The apartment is neat and tidy, clean and cosy. Haydn provided us with everything we needed. For us coming here was going home from home. Thank you Haydn!

    October 2013
  • Haydn was an awesome host. He was very accommodating and easy to work with. The apartment had everything needed for a comfortable stay. Very clean and modern flat. Also the location was great, close to Fitzroy gardens for an nice afternoon walk. I'd recommend this place to anyone as the location & flat is excellent in addition to Haydn being an excellent communicator and very accommodating. This was my first air bnb experience and it was a great way to start.

    October 2013
  • The location was excellent, ready access to transport, walking distance to CBD and other restaurant areas. Apartment is clean, modern and has all facilities. Haydn was easy to deal with and available if needed. We highly recommend this property.

    September 2013
  • Haydn was prompt to respond to my initial inquiry about his apartment and continued to be quick to respond before and during my stay. The apartment has a great kitchen which we used a lot. Wifi is great. Having secure parking was really handy. It was quite cold for our time in Melbourne and as the apartment has separate rooms, it is hard for the air conditioner to heat the whole apartment. Haydn quickly provided a second heater when I asked for one. The apartment is in a lovely area of Melbourne - it is quiet at night and you can walk through beautiful Fitzroy Gardens to the city. Also you are not far from outlet shopping on Bridge Road. We found a great cafe on the corner of New and York Streets (New York Tomato) where the coffee and the breakfast were great. There are a few train stations close by, as well as trams. Overall, we had a very good stay.

    August 2013
  • The apartment and location are great. The kitchen is fully equipped and renovated, and the apartment in general has been appointed with modern, functional furniture. The building and area are very quiet, and very close to trams, train station and walking distance to shopping/cafe/restaurant areas. Beautiful Fitzroy Gardens is 3 minutes away on foot. I loved staying here.

    Haydn was very responsive all at times, answering all my emails and questions in a timely manner. He was even nice enough to let me put my bags in the apartment before check-in time, since I had been flying for many hours prior to reaching Melbourne and arrived early in the morning. We initially had an issue with the way the apartment was left by the cleaning crew, but Haydn and Katrina called and emergency cleaning crew after business hours the same day, and both of them came by to personally supervise that everything was done right. They really took responsibility for this aspect of the service.

    In the end, the apartment was delivered in very clean condition and my stay was great.

    Katrina was also very kind to deliver extra sheets and a bathroom mat as soon as I requested it.

Born in Melbourne, grew up in Melbourne, and this great city is home. My work in management consulting and executive education takes me around Australia, to Asia, the Middle East and Europe. I've been an airbnb host since beginning of 2012 (yup... since before airbnb was a global phenomenon) and have a range of properties on offer. You'll find they're all fabulously located, spotlessly clean and super-comfortable and convenient. I travel enough to know what makes for a great home-away-from-home... and that's what I promise to deliver for you. Happy to answer your questions about Melbourne or my properties A little about me? Hmm... three things I really like: - Boeing - INSEAD - Peking duck! ;-)
