  • We've had a very nice time near the park. Loretta was very easy going and eager to help with anything. We've enjoyed interesting conversations with her and her son. Our baby was excited by the two friendly dogs, Tina & Sandy.

  • Loretta (email hidden) and my stay at her house was a 'very warm welcome' to Melbourne. She was kind enough to invite me for an evening in a small venue with live music which I really enjoyed.

    September 2012
  • Thank you Loreta for hosting us during this last week. It was very interesting talking to you about cultural differences between Europe and Australia and also sharing a fantastic dinner time with André and Noemi. If ever we stay in Melbourne, we would like to keep in contact.

  • Loretta's place lies in a quiet neighborhood. The room we lived in is a big comfy one with a king size bed. Loretta and her family was very welcoming and kind. We are invited to a delicious dinner on the day we arrived and had nice chats with her. She also gave us many insights and tips.

  • Room was fine and the atmosphere friendly. Once you work out the trains and buses it's relatively easy to come and go with a zone 1&2 ticket. When you get to Moorabbin Station get on a 211 or 212 bus but make sure it is going to "Brighton". "Dandenong" is the return bus going opposite direction.

    January 2012
  • A nice place in a quite neighborhood, a bit far from train station so I suggest you should have a car to move around. Loretta was very welcoming and gave us a lot of insights and tips, we had nice chats everyday!

    January 2012
  • A very welcoming warm atmosphere. Loretta was very helpful & kind. Michael has a great sense of humour. Lovely to meet these people – would definitely recommend a stay here
