It was amazing.. Bill was really helpful.and the place was quite near to everything and quite comfortable too..
Dear Roo, Thanks for the review, prior to every new guest arriving professional cleaners clean the apartment. I pay $77.00 for each clean and I change linen etc. This is done withion a 2 hour changeover period. There would not have been oil on the floor? and the only thin g I can possibly think of what that the floor hadnt fully dried since being cleaned?
The room is very nice and spacious, it is also very well located, near a train station and lots of restaurants and supermarkets. Although the kitchen and the bathroom could be better, overall the house is quite nice as are the rest of the housemates.
Dear Guiomar, thanks for the feedback and you were a wonderful guest. Any mess of course is made by others staying their is often out of my control until I see it and address it. I have a cleaner fortnightly for the common areas. This I think is often a problem in a shared house and to provide more regular cleaners would ad to the prices I would need to charge. Is a common problem with boarding houses.
Bill is a great host and welcomes you with a nice bottle of white wine waiting in your room :) Room is very spacious and has all the Foxtel (Cable TV) channels which is great to watch and relax on the sofa or bed.
Perfect location to view what Melbourne has to offer and very close to local shops and many Asian restaurants locally in Carnegie town. Just up the road is Chadstone Shopping Centre which is apparently the largest shopping mall in the southern hemisphere! Bill is very accommodating and reasonable and you can contact him at most times if you have any queries. Thoroughly recommended - Enjoy your stay in Malvern East/Carnegie!
We were made very welcome, even though arriving in the evening, the description posted is correct, the permanent tenants are very quiet and we hardly ever had to wait to use the shared amenities. The bed is very comfortable and the room we stayed in was clean. This is great hostel type accommodation for travelers or people coming to Melbourne for a conference. It is only 35mins to Southern Cross Station.
The room was very spacious and felt homely. Staying in the house with the other guests/long-term house-mates was fine because everyone was nice, but also kept to themselves. The area is a little removed from the hub of the city, although it's only a 9 min walk to the train station, so well-connected for transport. Bill was always quick to reply when we needed to ask anything, and was very helpful and courteous. Room and facilities are at a good standard and the price of the room is very affordable, we would happily stay again
Myself and my girlfriend stayed in Bill's house for a week and he was very accommodating to our needs and very friendly
Bill was a great host as he made sure everything went smoothly during the stay. The place was very clean and close to the station and majour shops as ALDI, so it was a very convenient location.
