The Space

Our Home

We therefore are letting out our two spare rooms. The cost shown is for one person. For each additional person, the cost is $20 per night.

The bedrooms

The bedrooms are a good size, about 3m by 3m. One has built-in robes and drawers, a queen size bed, and a set of french doors onto the front balcony. The other has a double futon and a chest of drawers.

Included in your costs are:

* A queen size bed with clean sheets and pillows
* Bath towels
* Shared bathroom
* Hair dryer/straightener available
* Furnished lounge & dining room
* Shared kitchen
* Shared laundry facilities (including detergents)
* BBQ & outdoor area

The Features

Our living area has sandstone floors and contains the lounge room, plus open plan kitchen and dining room. The lounge room has wireless broadband, a 42" HD TV, stereo system and our ridiculously comfortable six-seater couch (which converts to a queen size bed, if you wish). The kitchen has a gas stove on an island bench, blenders, toaster, kettle, dishwasher, all your crockery, cutlery and utensil needs. The whole area is heated by a split system. Naturally, you're welcome to use all of this equipment.

Bathroom

The bathroom has a bath and shower and loads of room. There's an additional toilet available out the back.

Laundry

There is a laundry with iron, washing machine and utility cupboard, with a clothesline just outside.

Backyard

Our backyard has herbs, a BBQ, a brazier to huddle around and keep warm, and chairs to relax on.

The Area

The home is located in Yarraville, which is one of the coolest areas of Melbourne. We are literally 200 metres from the village, which has a train station (12 minutes to the city!!), two supermarkets, loads of restaurants and cafes, boutiques, and a brilliant old art deco movie theatre

  • First Airbnb experience... and a very pleasant one!
    Very friendly hosts, nice home, tidy, clean and quiet.
    Thanks again Charlie!

    March 2014
  • Charlie and Rowena were out for the weekend we were there. They entrusted the entire place to us. The Airbnb manual that charlie published had everything we needed to know to get around the house and the neighbourhood. The place was clean and tidy, warm and cozy. Indeed a home away from home. Yarraville village has several nice coffee places that serves fantastic food. There's also an IGA supermarket and several quaint little shops; you will pretty much find anything that you need there. A pity we only got to interact with our hosts for a short while, they are extremely friendly people! Totally enjoyed our stay there!

  • Great experience to stay at Charlie's house.
    Very comfortable and lovely house, and good location!

  • Our family of four were treated with the highest level of hospitality during our 3 day stay at Charlie's home. His home is spacious, bright, comfortable and inviting, with a wonderful courtyard where I enjoyed my morning tea while my daughter relaxed in the hammock. The neighborhood has the best cafes, restaurants and shops, all in walking distance of Charlie's home. We will be visiting Melbourne frequently this next year and know where we will book our stay for every trip. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

  • Great stay. Charlie and Rowena were really helpful and friendly and made the stay most comfortable!

    September 2012
  • Charlie's house was very pleasant to stay in, with a lovely, sunny open-plan living area at the back looking onto the small garden courtyard. The beds were extremely comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. Charlie was friendly and helpful. And Yarraville is a terrific little shopping centre, with a village-like atmosphere, and lots of cafes, restaurants, little shops and even an old cinema. My daughter and I had a great time there.
