Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Simple, tidy and located very conveniently from the tram station that takes you to the city, and attractions like the Queen Victoria Market. Didn't see Shane around very much but when we did, he was incredibly helpful and resourceful with regards to suggestions of places to check out around the city. A fuss-free experience that I would definitely recommend to anyone travelling in Melbourne!

  • The house and the room are absolutely delightful, comfort and clean. I felt very warm welcome and felt his thoughtful by all the travel info guide, map, clean room, and even the train cards that he's prepared in the room for us.
    Shane is very nice and kindness host, it was a joy to stay at this place.

    Thank you for your hospitality!

  • Shane is a lovely person. We fell like in our home in his house. It was very clean, very comfortable. We had a wonderful trip there and hope to return for our next trip to Melbourne.

    February 2014
  • Shane's house is modern, looks good and is clean! Also, it is very bright and the room you'll be staying has a desk and a good bed!

    It's about 10 mins walking to the supermarket and 30 minutes by tram to Flinders station and the tram stops very close to the house.

    Shane is a very friendly guy, who also wants to be a good host. And for me he was, I had a good time at his place!

  • I liked Shane and his beautiful appartment very much. I could really fell at home. Everything was well prepared. He gave us lots of useful information about Melbourne, the area around his house with shopping and dining possibilities and the public tranport system. The city centre is not far from his home. We could ask him about anything. We had a really good time in Flemington.

    December 2012
  • Shane was a wonderful friendly host with great tips on what to do and where to go. His home is clean and tidy and very comfy :) I highly recommend staying with Shane if you're ever visiting Melbourne. Thanks for sharing your home with us, we will definitely stay with you again, that is if you're not already booked out!

  • nice place to stay; supermarket, cafés and metro 5 min walk away; next laundry 1 tram station away; welcome info including myki-card for public transport available; place located next to the race course; if intested to go jogging/running you can do this around the race course along the riverside with a great view of the skyline in the back

  • Our experience was perfect since the first contact with Shane. Our check-in was easily arranged. Shane´s place was nice, tidy and clean. He made sure we had all the tourist information available, including public transport passes. The house manual included all the relevant details. Our room was nice, and the kitchen had plenty of utensils, which was perfect for us as we love cooking. Plus, the place was very close to the grocery store and to CBD, but far enough from the crowdy parts of the city. The street parking was great for our hired car.
    We definetly recommend Shane´s place to have a memorable stay in Melbourne.

  • Shane is an amazing guy. Everything was perfect. Very prepared. Better than a hotel! We got our own towels, a nice room, some chocolat :p drank wine and talked late at night. We could ask everything. He gave us a lot of tips. I recommend him to everybody.
