The only thing we ask is that you don't cook in the bedroom as it has carpet on the floor and no exhaust fan in the room. Tea, coffee, toast Ok.
Enjoy whatever you choose to do.
I had another lovely stay at Maureen's home. She and her husband are wonderful hosts and their house is in a very quiet location. They are very helpful, fun to be with and made me feel very much at home.
Maureen and Brian are the most wonderful hosts anyone could ever wish to have. Their home was as it stated in the blurb, comfortable, relaxing and very clean. Close to transport links around the city. Maps and timetables were provided by the hosts.
I had another lovely stay at Maureen's very comfortable and quiet home. They made me feel very welcome. The air conditioning makes it very liveable on a hot day. Thanks again!
Maureen and Brian provide a welcoming and very warm experience for their guests. The bed is very comfortable and the bathroom is great. The location is both quiet, being off the main roads, and reasonably close to public transport, making access into central Melbourne very easy. Maureen and Brian are very experienced and trusting hosts and we felt very much at home. Their home suited our needs (visiting family in a nearby suburb) perfectly.
The Christmas gift was a treat!
A very beautiful and new home with clean and fresh rooms. Maureen and Brian were relaxed, uncomplicated, friendly and interested, but really we only overlapped for about 20 min. for a really nice conversation. They were super sweet to the kids and even had some cookies for them and let them play the didgeridoo. We are sure to look them up again next time we are in the area. Highly recommended.
My host made me feel most welcome. The room was everything I wished for. The quiet location was also to my liking. Breakfast was well laid out and quite inviting. Maureen's very sociable and easy to chat to. I felt very comfortable there.
A peaceful neighbourhood, lovely home, great room, good facilities and wonderful hosts. Maureen and Brian were very welcoming, and I had a very relaxing weekend with a lot of privacy. Highly recommended!
About the Host, Maureen
We are a very active couple, Brian keeps and rides horses, whilst I love to ballroom dance, go to the gym and swim. We love Australia and enjoy sharing our country and home with people from all over the world and learning all about where they come from. We have been hosting people, especially young travellers since 2000 and thought we would expand it to AirBnb. We love to share a meal and a nice bottle of wine and get to know our guests. Since the accomodation we offer is quite self sufficient, guests can have as much or as little privacy as they wish.
