Our stay was very comfortable. KC was nice and very well organised. He patiently explained the details of the accommodation and answered all our questions.
We are a couple in our late 70's who stayed 19 nights in the accommodation. KC and son were absent during our stay. Serena was a gracious and helpful hostess. The house is a large property situated on a quiet street with a supermarket, eateries and a bottle shop 5 minutes walk away. The entrance hall is tiled but the stairs and accommodation has white fitted carpets so shoes off on entry please. The two bedrooms and bathroom are self contained but the toilet is outside the unit on the landing. The beds were comfortable with duvet covering but no linen change was offered during our stay. The clothes washing and drying facilities are very good however for DIY. Full kitchen and breakfast facilities were available downstairs but we provided our own in our room as the downstairs area was too far away. Keys are provided so you can come and go as you please. The air conditioning was not on during our stay in spite of some hot nights but fans are provided in the bedrooms. We were out every day with family who live near-by so for our purpose the accommodation was suitable.
We were very pleased to host Eddie and Diane and happy that they had enjoyed their stay. On the day of check-in for long stays (a week or longer), during the briefing and orientation, all guests were reminded that fresh linen can be requested as per necessary since every guest has their own preferences. Similarly, temperature control is very subjective and all guests were gently reminded to inform the hosts of their needs. We aim to meet all expectations but sometimes tired guests (especially after a very long flight to Melbourne) missed out our briefing information :-)
집 구조: 케이시는 본인의 집 2층을 빌려준다.(1층은 케이시와 세레나 그들의 아들인 다리어스가 산다)
2인용방 두개가 화장실을통해 연결되어 있는 구조이고
같은구조로 연결된 또다른 방이 다른 4인 여행객들을 위해 준비되어있다.
(4인으로 여행하는 두그룹을 위한 설계 4인이상인경우 다른방 사용가눙)
2층 거실은 여행객들의 냉장고 2대와 전자레인지 2대
4인용 식탁하나와 소파와 티비, 찻잔 기본 수저 커피포트가 준비되어있다.
아침식사는 1층 거실에 준비된 빵과 쨈, 시리얼을 제공하는데 2층에 토스트기가 없는것으로 보아 아침식사자체를 1층에서 해결하라는 구조인것 같다. 케이시 가족 모두가 여행객들에게 호의적인 것을 생각하면 잠깐이라도 아침에 같이 얼굴보고 인사를 하기 위한 아이디어일지도 모르겠다.
케이시의 집 정원은 크지않지만 동화같아서 잠깐 앉아서 여유를 즐기기 좋다.
위치: 케이시의 집은 시티와는 좀 멀지만 시티와는 다른 멜번 서쪽의 주택가를 구경하기엔 케이시 집이 딱인것 같다.
대중교통으로 시티에 가기위해선 집앞 버스정류장에서 버스를 타고 10분 간 뒤 윌리엄스랜딩역에서 내려 지하철을 타고 35분쯤 가야한다.
이동시간이 아까운 사람이면 아쉬울 수 있는 위치인것같다.
그 외: 케이시는 여행객을 맞이하는것이 아주 즐거운것 같다. 공항과 케이시 집과의 거리때문에 택시로 이동하는것보다 싼 가격으로 케이시가 픽업서비스를 제공해주는데 그때 케이시는 멜번에 대한 여러가지 정보를 알려주고 집주변의 편의시설과 버스와 지하철 타는법을 세세하게 알려줬다.
케이시 집 주변의 시티와는 다른 멜번의 여행지도 추천해주었고 버스가 끊길때면 윌리엄스 랜딩에서 우리를 픽업해주로 오기도 했다.
케이시의 부인인 세레나도 아주 친절하고 세레나가 아들인 다리어스에게 피아노와 바이올린을 가르치는데 그 솜씨가 대단하다.
요약: 집자체는 아주깔끔하고 예쁘다. 굳굳 집주인은 아주많이 친절하다. 멜번서쪽의 주택가구경을할수있으나 시티와는 조금멀다.
I was travelling to Melbourne for 5 days on my own, and lucky that I have chosen this wonderful b&b at Ponin Cook, which is a very peaceful suburb.
I got a really wonderful experience at the homestay in the family of Koh. KC, Serena, and Darius are very kind to their guests. The house is very tidy and clean. And they are such a sweet family which made me truly feel like "home" staying here.
As I was all on my own during the stay, the family took good care of me, that KC provided a lot of useful information for my travel around Melbourne, and Serena made great Chinese food.=p And I enjoyed the instrumental music from Serena and Darius so much!
Thanks to this great accommodation, which made my very first self-trip perfect.=]
I look forward to visiting this "home" again!
We, as a group of 12, were absolutely delighted with the hospitality and kindness extended to us all, and the level of service and cleanliness was above expectation.
Anyone wishing to experience true Melbourne hospitality, definitely book and you will not be disappointed. The time spent with the son, listening to his amazing musical talents was an added thrill.
Next time we require accommodation in Melbourne, for any length of time, we are definitely booking Windrest Way, Point Cook!!!
KC, Serena and Darius, the for making our stay very memorable and would love to catch up soon,
Steve and Brigit Connolly

We love travelling and have a strong empathy with travellers of all types - singles, couples, groups of friends or family, business or pleasure, city or nature lovers ....... We love meeting people, sharing stories, and helping others maximise their travel experiences. Darius, our 10-year-old son, is equally sociable and gracious with adults and kids alike. We look forward to hosting you !
