Especially for the first time Melbourne visitor, all the info. is very helpful. I would love to stay Shane's house again if I go to Melbourne.

  • I enjoy my short stay (3nights) at Shane's place. Very clean, tidy, comfortable.
    The transport very easy to get, near the tram stop and train station to the city.
    Shane himself is nice person, informative about the transport, a place to visit.
    Fully recommended. Thanks Shane for the hospitality :)

  • Great place, but didn't get to meet Shane :-( when he was in, I was out :-)
    We wrote little letters for each other though.
    Tram ride to Flemington takes a little while, but I enjoyed it and the trams operate until midnight even during the week. Shane kindly provided a tram ticket (myki card) for the first ride - then you top up in any of the 7eleven shops.
    Everything easy, clean and tidy.

  • We had a very nice stay at Shane's place.
    The location is very convenient : 30 min taxi ride from the airport, very close to tram, bus and train that lead to the city in 15 minutes, shops (woolworth) very close as well.
    The house is very comfy and has got everything you need (washing machine, bbq, dishwasher ....).
    Shane works a lot so we did not see him a very long time but it was great to meet him. He will make you feel at home. He is very experienced with air bnb and very well organized : top welcome pack, self check in and out, this is very convenient !
    We would definitely recommend staying at Shane's !

  • 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 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.
