The beach is only 2 miles from the house, while historic downtown Melbourne is only 3 minutes away! FIT is only 5 minutes away.
Downtown Melbourne is a very nice area with lots to do every day, unique and creative local stores, live music, great restaurants, art festivals every month.
There are many restaurants for dining by the water, with view to the ocean, lots of happy hour specials, souvenir shops, surf shops, and miles of beautiful beaches of course! I'm

Upon arrival we will give you a key of the house, so you may go and come as needed. If you decide to come late and enjoy a night in the town, that's ok too, we just ask that you enter quietly when you return.
We are a couple in our 50's and we do live in the house alone, but the rest of the family visits us regularly (our grown up children and grandkids), so you may find one of us around sometimes. We are quite friendly people and love to chat, but we also respect your privacy and we understand when you just need to rest and be alone, so feel free to come and chat with us in the living room, or simply stay in your room and rest.

Had a great stay. Place was comfortable and quiet with lots of power outlets. I liked the choice of books (_Algorithms_ by Papadimitriou et al, etc.) Didn't talk to Alex much since I got in late but he seemed friendly.
Very clean room. They accommodated me even though I was getting there late. Good amenities.
The room and the house were cozy and quiet. The bathroom was clean. The hosts provided towels, shampoo and other necessary things. Everything was good.
We got to their house extremely late and they were kind enough to wait for us. The room and bathroom were very clean. Maria and Alex are very sweet.
Nous avons été très bien reçus par Alex, qui nous a offert des boissons fraîches à notre arrivée pourtant tardive (20h30).
La chambre était correcte.
Nous n'avons pas eu l'occasion de discuter plus avec lui par manque de temps, mais ça aurait été avec plaisir.
Le quartier est très calme, et il nous a indiqué où manger.
Alex and Maria are the best hosts we've ever had! So helpful - they help us with everything and their breakfast was soooo good. The house and room are great. The patio - FANTASTIC! It's good place for spend your holidays unless you have no car, public transportation in Melbourne is really poor...
