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 :)
