Easy to travel from and to the Airport; quiet and safe neighbourhood; a spacious and sunny room; backyard for sun baking; a friendly host who are easy going and super friendly!
I would like to make your journey more comfortable!

The space

My place is great for guest from overseas, interstate or want to live in northern suburbs. If you like live in CBD, this one is not for you, if you are looking for someplace that is between airport and city, have free places to park your car, and like a spacious and quite place for some privacy, or not in rush and happy to travel 30 minutes on the train to city(like us local people do) , it is the perfect place for you.

Recently, we have upgraded lighting to LED ceiling lights with adjustable lighting in the bedrooms, we have bought new queen size bed to make the guest room more comfortable.

The guest bedrooms provided here for your comfort is in a two bedroom unit with 100sqm backyard(my green garden). This bedroom is airy and bright with big windows. Your room has a queen size bed and a build in wardrobe, good mattress, good cotton bedding and linen, and room is often decorated with fresh roses from my garden. Bathroom and kitchen are kept in 70's style with colourful tiles . All my neighbors are very friendly and lovely, You will be woken up by the birds every morning.

I am not living in the unit, you will share the unit with my Chinese parents. They are newly migrated to Australia. Mum likes to meeting people, and talk to guests through her phone app translator. My Dad was Biology teacher, he is a bit shy and quiet, he is passionate about table tennis and gardening. So he looks after the organic vegetable garden we have. They are very happy and easy going people, like to do their best to make guests comfortable.

Unlimited wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, no dryer(clothes get dried very quickly on the lines in the backyard).

It is close to Melb Airport as well as City CBD. From Melbourne main airport is 15 -20 mins drive, by taxi is about $35-$40 ( work out cheaper and quicker than catching the sky bus from airport to city if 2 people). from my place to city 13Kms which is about $30-$40 by taxi depends on where you go of course. You can catch bus or train to city (30 mins train trip), 10 mins lovely walk to the Keon Park station. Just to mention, your room also has its own TV on the wall with local channels. you can also catch bus and change bus to get to airport, the details will be available on public transport Victoria website.
Local shops 5-10 mins walking distance are Chinese Restaurant, a cafe, a italiian food shop with homemade pasta, fresh vegetable and fruit shop, milk bar, and if you need big supermarket, that is 3kms away, can reach by train(2 stops), 2 big shopping mall is 10 mins drive away or couple of train or bus stops away. Also the nearby suburb Preston has a big food market during Wed to Sat, and plenty of restaurants open till late every night and offers $10 meals! it is 4 stops on the same South Morang train line to city direction, so you could have dinner there on the way back from City if don't want to cook. If you love cooking, you have access to all the kitchen equipment, feel free to cook as much as you want.

It is close to Preston weekend markets, RMIT & La Trobe Uni Bundoora campus but not walking distance.

Here to offer you a home away from home and joyful Melbourne experience.

We are all travellers on this planet, happy to make your journey even more brighter and happier!

We had the most amazing stay with Diana's parents! This was the best airbnb experience my partner and I have had and we use it a lot! It was so homely comfortable and amazing to meet an older Chinese couple who have only lived in oz for 13 months! We had dinner made for us for a very valuable price and felt so welcome! We definitely will try and stay again! Can't recommend enough !! We even spoke a little mandarin which was very fun!

Staying at Diana's place was wonderful! Her parents are delightful. It was exactly the quiet place I needed to rest for the night between flights. If you can navigate Melbourne transit, it is a pretty simple two bus trip and couple block walk from the airport. Diana's place is a gem in Melbourne!

We stayed at Diana's parents for two nights. We had to check in very late and they didn't have any issues. Communication with Diana was very good and efficient. Communication with Diana's mum was amazing, interesting and funny... she uses her (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) translator and makes you speak and also translates haha. It was a very nice stay, we would stay again.
