About This Listing
Come and stay in our light filled second bedroom. The room has a comfortable queen size bed, desk and armchair.
Our cosy flat is located in Fairfield in Melbourne's inner north. The station is 7 minutes walk and a further 20 minutes travel into central Melbourne. We are close to trendy High St, Northcote and there is public transport direct to the cafe and shopping strips of Fitzroy, Carlton and Brunswick.
We are still putting the final touches on the flat so you will notice there is some painting still to do and our bathroom - while clean and perfectly functional - is on the list for an upgrade.
You are welcome to use our wifi, laundry and kitchen. We will provide a basic breakfast and good Colombian coffee.
Fairfield is a lovely neighbourhood. We are 3 minutes walk from our local shops where there are Italian, Japanese, Indian, Greek, Thai and Chinese restaurants as well as good take away. There are also 3 small supermarkets, grocers and a range of cafes and bakeries.
There are no rules as such.
We ask that you don't smoke inside but we have a balcony that you are welcome to use.
You are also welcome to use our kitchen and laundrey. Basic clean up after yourself rules apply :)
It was a pleasure to stay at Jess and Luis' place. I unfortunately did not get the chance to meet them as they were away on holiday but we had everything we could need and their home was quiet, cosy and comfortable. The beds were made with clean linen and we had fresh towels. There were also basic amenities and pantry supplies such as tea and spreads which was great.
Looking forward to staying again!
Jess & Luis's apartment was fabulous ! They were overseas during our stay so we didn't get to meet them in person but they were great to deal with and responded very quickly to any requests and left us easy, clear instructions. The location was excellent, nice and quiet but within walking distance to great cafés and bars (which Jess and Luis had kindly recommended!)
The apartment was as described on the airbnb website, very clean and handy.
We also appreciated the transport cards they had left for visitors and the very well equiped kitchen (they must love cooking as much as we do !). The breakfast bar was very handy too.
It's a place we definitely recommend for a great Melbourne visit !
Jess y Luis son fabulosos¡ Nos recibieron con los brazos abiertos, y hasta los ultimos dias que pasamos con ellos, fueron muy amables y nos ayudaron mucho (Y eso que ellos estaban preparandose para viajar y tenían mucho que hacer). Son excelentes anfitriones y recomendamos a ojos cerrados alojarse con ellos. Tiene una paciencia eterna y muy buena disposición para todo lo que uno necesita... Fairfield es un muy buen sector para alojarse, es tranquilo, el comercio esta muy cercano y los parques son hermosos.
Chicos les deseamos lo mejor en su viaje, muchas gracias por todo ;)
Y cuando quieran ir a la Patagonia nos escriben :)

We are Jess and Luis.
Jess is a Melbourne girl born and bred, Luis grew up in the mountains of Manizales, Colombia.
We both love travelling and recently completed a six month trip around Australia and South East Asia. We are staying with Luis' family in Colombia for a while.
We love the concept of Airbnb and the fantastic people we have met both as hosts and travellers.
We are a pretty relaxed and really enjoy having people stay with us or making use of our home when we are away.

Jess is learning Spanish as fast as she can. Her favourite places in the world are Japan, New Zealand and Victoria's own Wilson's Prom where she went camping every year with her family. Luis loves being by the sea or in the mountains and loves snorkelling, swimming and hiking.
