Contact me about enquiring about Friday and Saturday night stays currently listed as not available, but I'm flexible and can usually accommodate these nights too.
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.
We stayed for three nights at Shane's place. He was a nice and welcoming host wo provided us with further information about the city and everything else needed for a good start in Melbourne. The house and our room were very nice and clean and the location convenient to get to the inner city (just a short walk to the train or tram station.).We would totally recommend staying with Shane.
Shane is a nice host, i and my wife stayed in his host for 3 nights. His guest is very comfortable. We are very like to visit Shane's house next time.
The house is fantastic, very clean, well equipped and located in a great spot. Shane is very thoughtful to prepare for us both before arrival and during stay. He is also willing to help in anytime. I highly recommend this place for anyone who come to visit Melbourne. Thanks Shane.
Great location, lovely place to stay and a fantastic host. Everything you need right there and handy transport links to the city. Great for exploring the city during the day and a bbq in the garden in the evening!
Very Kind and helpful host. He prepared a folder with a lot of tourist information, maps and tram tickets.
The house is tidy and nice.
All in all a really nice stay.
Shane is a great host. We were made to feel very welcome and 'at home' as soon as we arrived, and had a great few days staying in his lovely home. Shane kept in contact really well before and during our stay, and he gave us tips on where to go in the city, making our trip even better. He's very easy-going and friendly, and the house is really close to transport to get into town. We wouldn't hesitate to get back in touch should we ever be in Melbourne again, even if just to go for a drink and a catch-up!
Shane's place is in a great location with easy access to the CBD. Shane was very friendly and helpfull.
The place was great. Clean and tidy with a nice kitchen and living room with a really comfy sofa (perfect for watching Breaking Bad on). Shane was really friendly and made us feel at home. The location was great too with good links to the city centre. Would definitely recommend.
Melbourne Cup. Shane's 2 bedroom, single bathroom semi is walking distance to the track. Guides to Melbourne were made available but unfortunately no personal recommendations. The room was actually his young son' s and decorated accordingly. It lacked full length hanging space and a mirror. With a spring clean and pantry restock we would recommend it.
