Serena and KC are hospitable and friendly. Their home is set up to accommodate guests privately and respectfully. I would definitely recommend this listing.
The host family was very welcoming and the house was absolutely spotless. Very enjoyable and I would definitely stay again,
Our family stayed 3 nights at this homestead. Our hosts kept their home meticulously neat and clean, very much in the manner of our own style and preference. KC was thorough in running us through the features of his home and what was available to guests. The house was in a quiet and new neighbourhood with nearby food and the Werribee Park/Zoo attractions.
Would recommend this place to others.
A very nice place to stay, both the house and area. The family is accommodating and friendly.
The previous reviews say it all! Great hosts and a wonderful, spacious home in a respectable location allowing you to easily explore Melbourne or to travel the Great Ocean Road. A supermarket and various eateries are also in easy walking distance.
I was travelling alone and was made to feel very welcome, right from our very first communication through to my 4 night stay when I was warmly greeted by KC. Their home is very clean, modern and quiet.
My packed itinerary meant that I did not, sadly, get much time to spend with the Goh family, but their house was certainly a pleasure to return home to in the evenings. Like many guests before me, I would certainly recommend staying here and you can book with confidence.
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 :-)
