The Space

Welcome To Carlton -

Located in Carlton, I have a comfortable furnished double room available in a heritage listed house.

The house is fully renovated and furnished with a private courtyard and garden. You will have exclusive use of a bedroom with a double bed, separate bathroom and shared use of a fully equipped kitchen and comfortable living area.

The house is situated in an excellent location, within walking distance to the city centre. It is also close to Melbourne Museum, World Heritage Exhibition Building, Carlton Gardens and the University.

In just a short 7 minute walk, you will arrive at busy Lygon Street or trendy Brunswick Street and their many quirky shops, cafes and restaurants.

The number 96 tram is just a short 3 minute walk from the house and will take you via Parliament House to Bourke Street in the heart of the city where you can also connect to the full range of other trams and trains and buses of Melbourne.

Enjoy your stay in Carlton/Melbourne!!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • I recently stayed in Tony's lovely home for nearly 3 weeks. From the first moment he made me feel welcome and his warmth and consideration throughout my stay truly made it a home away from home. His home is exactly as represented in the photos and both the private and shared space are extremely comfortable. Being so close to downtown was a delightful as it was a pleasant walk to the centre of the city. While Tony's home is close to the city centre it is on a quiet street just steps from Carlton Garden which made the location peaceful and relaxing. Tony's hospitality is genuine and generous. We enjoyed many interesting conversations at the end of the day. He is a wonderful cook and prepared a delicious meal for us at the end of my stay. I would definitely stay with Tony again. He helped to make my stay in Melbourne a delight.

  • This place is well worth the money. Tony was a great host, and it's a shame I wasn't able to sample his cooking. He showed me around the area, which I appreciated. The house is also in a really great neighborhood. It's nice and quiet, and near a tram stop that takes you to the center of the city. Real thoughtful of Tony to have a Myki tram card for all his guests too.

    I'd definitely stay there again if I ever find an excuse to return to Melbourne.

  • Tony has a lovely home close to Melbourne's city centre, Lygon St restaurant district, the MCG / Rod Laver Arena and Collingwood/Fitzroy arts precinct. The home is as shown and described on Tony's profile. Public transport is close by although I usually walked into the city without too much effort

    I recently stayed with Tony for 6 nights while attending nearby training, the football and catching up with friends and family. Tony is a great host and very mindful of the needs of the traveler. His home is neat and warm with small touches (like the shell collection in the downstairs bathroom) to welcome the guest. I had a busy week so didnt get to sample his much complimented cooking..next stay perhaps?

    Highly recommend and hope to stay with Tony again,

  • I stayed with Tony for six weeks while I was in Melbourne for work.
    I had a wonderful time. Tony is a sweet, generous host who made me feel welcome from the very first moment I arrived.
    We have had lots of fun together - hosting dinner parties and going on a day trip on the weekend. I consider him a friend and look forward to catching up whenever we are in the same city next.

  • Great host, great location, just few steps from Carlton Garden (Melbourne Museum), quiet in the night so we can take a rest well. Definitely will stay here if we will go to Melbourne again :)

  • Tony is an excellent host who is friendly helpful and informative. However he is also unobtrusive. The house is very clean and tastefully decorated with a pleasant small back garden that one can dine in. The position is also very good especially if you like to walk. Many of Melbourne's attractions are within walking distance, however there is a tram stop less than 5 minutes away.

  • Tony is a completely charming and engaging host. On my first night, we went on a nice long walk around the neighborhood to help me orient to the location and so that he could show me good spots to eat, shop for groceries and where to catch the tram. There are lots of great eating and shopping areas very close to the house. The location is close enough to the CBD that I usually walked into town, but it was nice to have the tram as an option for those afternoons when I was tired from too much walking. The guest bedroom is well appointed and would be comfortable for a long-term stay. The guest bathroom is really as beautiful as the photos. The entire house is large enough that privacy is easy.
