General courtesy with other guests and cleaning up after using the kitchen.
Great room in Melbourne suburb. The house is close to supermarkets and trains to the city, strong wifi and the FOXTEL in the room is a great bonus. Kitchen and bathroom could do with a spruce up, but good for what they are. We were provided lots of storage for our foods which was good. Private seating area outside too. Other house guests tended to stick to themselves but that's no negative on the property, overall a great weeks stay. Highly recommended!
great stay! house is very close to mall and train station. great communication with host :)
Bill is a very nice host who made me feel very welcome. His response time was fantastic - fast and courteous. The accommodation is just as described/shown. The location, as many has pointed out, is great, Woolies and Aldi, are within walking distance. Chadstone Shopping Centre is about 5-10 minutes car/bus ride away. Lots of eateries/restaurants closeby. Also there is a local library if you will like to read or relax in. The closeby train station would help getting around to explore the city.
Great host, room, lots of space, in a lovely quiet house also meeting other travellers, very close to Chadstone Shopping Mall (20 mins walk) and Shopping Centre across the road. Lots of little cafe's and bakeries on the main drag. Highly recommend staying at the house as it's close to the train station (7 mins walk) and only 20 mins from the most livable city in the World.
Bill states his goal "...is for you to enjoy your stay, have privacy, and provide you with a room that is both comfortable, homey and fun to be in".
Our expections: we were disappointed in this booking with Air B&B. This booking is functioning as a backpacker/hostel acomdation. This is not how it is listed.
On a positive note Bill was very responsive when issues surfaced regarding the zone heater not working and brought us a fantastic wool blanket to stay warm. The wifi, tv, clothes washer were nice amenities. Transportation and grocery store is close by. Little road noise from busy street.
The property should be marketed as a 1930 home renovation in progress. The room is reflected accurately in posted pictures.
The kitchen, bathroom & building are
Under refurbishment should be implied with pictures being accurate.
The front entry way is broken cement pad. The back exit to private patios is often blocked with tools etc
We would not recommend this booking. J&M V, USA

Bill was a great, helpful host and the room was just as you see it in the pics, nice and spacious. This is a quiet household in a good location, with a supermarket a couple hundred metres down the road and not far from Chadstone Shopping Centre. Met a couple of the other house guests and they were all great folks.
