The prefect little cottage, with a great host. Location was perfect and Kirsten made us feel at home.

The townhouse is one of a kind. The bed was super comfortable and the bathroom has been designed beautifully. Location wise it was roughly a 20 minute drive to Melbourne Central. The townhouse was originally advertised as an entire house but has since been update to match the true description. Kristen was their for the weekend but she was quiet as a mouse. A very responsive and lovely host!

Staying with Kirsten was very convenient for me to visit my family in Melbourne. It was also an easy walk to local shops, cafes and public transport to the city. Kirsten was welcoming. Her home was well presented, clean and comfortable with an eclectic, artistic vibe. Thanks Kirsten, hope to stay again sometime soon. Mary from Adelaide

I am truly grateful for my stay at Kirsten's. It was a home away from home, I felt welcome the moment I walked in. Kirsten was absolutely beautiful and her home was so peaceful. The bathroom is amazing! And everywhere you look, Kirsten has her art which is fun (you just want to smile). I couldn't have been more happy. Thank you so much Kirsten!

My partner and I had a lovely weekend in Melbourne and the stay at Kirsten's home was very comfortable. Her home is beautiful.

Kirsten's home is beautiful, and she's a terrific host. The place is filled with incredible art—most of it by Kirsten—and the bedroom is a perfect little haven. I loved staying here, and would do it again in a heartbeat.

If you want a nice house, quiet, with a bedroom and wifi, not in the city center but 35 minutes by tram (line 11) or even 20 minutes for Fitzroy (very nice lively) ... is the good address. However, if you want to discuss, share meals with the host and a very clean house, .. this is not the right address. Indeed, Kirsten at first glance looks nice but very shy, a little smile and finally I didn't dare ask her anything because she gave the impression I was disturbing her. She gave me the space and it was nice but required a bit of interactivity.

Response from Kirsten:
Michael was an insistent guest and seemed to forget that I was living there too. He even cried when I said I didn't have room to store his bag when he went travelling to tassie and didn't want to pay for extra luggage on the plane. He burnt pots in my kitchen, would use the washing machine without asking and could be quite unfriendly. He made me feel uncomfortable in my own home.

Hi I'm Kirsten. I am an artist and designer living in vibrant Preston. My 2 bedroom unit is on a quiet street just off the Gilbert Road Tram 11 which takes 35 mins into the city. I am a 12 min walk to Preston market open Wednesdays to Saturdays, great fresh produce and atmosphere. I love walking there on a Saturday and cooking afterwards. My unit is decorated eclectically with artwork. I enjoy making art, going to galleries, local Bikram yoga and meditation.

I have done lots of travel myself and am keen to meet like minded individuals who are keen to explore the wonders of my favourite city, Melbourne. I have travelled to South East Asia, Africa, USA, Europe and lived in Japan. I have lots of international friends who i have hosted and I've got plenty of ideas of what to do and see here.
I am about a 25 min taxi from the airport which is about $40. Also a 12 min walk to Preston station. Merri Creek, Coburg Trash and Treasure Market, local cafes and yoga studios are short walks away. I love making ceramics, sculpture and jewellery from my home studio. I also love music and am a short tram ride to Northcote Social Club or Brunswick Street, Fitzroy.
