There is an abundance of bars, restaurants, shopping and cafes close by. However, the street where the apartment is located is quiet, so you can sleep in, no worries!

We also have the Botanical Gardens and the Yarra real close to us, so if you want a great spot for a barbie we'll tell you (or take you)

Getting around can't be easier, 5 minute walk from the train station and tram stop that takes you to the city (the tram also takes you to the botanical gardens). The train ride to the city takes about 5 minutes.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I had a such lovely days in Melbourne and Ernesto&Lina's comfy and bright room.
    The apartment is located in a nice spot. It has easy access to the South Yarra train and tram station, and Chapel street which is a trendy spot to go shopping. It was a second floor apartment, bright and warm, and well decorated. Oh, don't miss the Ernesto's DVD collections!

    Ernesto and Lina were so sweet and kind hosts. They welcomed me and were open minded, so I could stayed like at a friend's house. Also, Ernesto and Lina are really like travelling, so we have shared own travel experiences. Thanks for great stay!

  • Ernesto & Lina were great hosts, very relaxed and easy going people. Even though I didn't spend enough time in the house with them in the short time we were there together it was nice to sit with them and chat about common interests - travel, music, food etc. Thank you again Ernesto & Linda for your hospitality!

  • Staying at Ernesto and Lina´s was like staying with old friends. I totally recommend staying with them, the place is very nice and you can find anything you need just around the corner. They are ready to give you any advice about the city and welling to share their lovely home with you. Thank you for everything!!

  • Ernesto and Lina are the nicest hosts you can happen to find. Staying with them was great: not only they are really welcoming and easygoing, but they also provided me with all the information and help I needed.
    The apartment is spacious, bright and clean, and so is the guestroom. They let me have access to the kitchen so I was able to keep and cook my own food. The location is a total plus: South Yarra is an incredibly lively area, full of shops and bars. And any point in town can be easily reached by public transport or even by foot in some cases. I highly recommend staying at Ernesto and Lina`s place: it`s the perfect spot to start exploring the city, and it`ll give you the possibility to get to know two really nice and interesting people.

  • This was the perfect way to start our stay in Australia. My old college roommate and I were so fortunate to meet Lina and Ernesto. They are such gracious hosts--we were full of questions and they were nothing but helpful every step of they way. Plus, they are just great to hang out and joke around with! I can't say enough good things about these two!

    The room itself was clean and sunny. Their apartment was in a central spot to the train station and Chapel St in lovely South Yarra. If you're new to the city you'll lovelovelove staying here.

  • We had a great stay at Ernesto and Lina's lovely apartment. The house is beautiful and the room is clean and cosy. Ernesto and Lina are really nice people, friendly, helpful and always smiling. The area is very pleasant, lively by day and peaceful by night, well connected with the CBD and very close to the wonderful Royal Botanic Gardens. I absolutely recommend it and really hope to come back. :)

  • Ernesto and Lina were absolutely fabulous hosts! They were very welcoming and made me feel comfortable right away. Staying with them was like staying with old friends. The apartment was clean and the room was cozy with a comfy bed and a place to hang my clothes. The location was ideal for discovering one of Melbourne's great neighborhoods, tons of great restaurants and shopping...also nice to be away from the hoards of tourists. Walking distance to the Royal Botanical Gardens and even to St Kilda if you are up for a powerwalk. Thanks Ernesto and Lina!

I was born and raised in Mexico, one of my dreams is to live in 5 countries, so far, I've lived in 3. Most of my knowledge about other cultures came from the Asterix books that I read while I was a kid. I love traveling (my quest in life), I really love Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, reading, playing guitar, having beers and a good conversation at a pub and eating mexican food, but I always like trying new things, for better or worse! We're pretty laid back and tolerant, so respect and an open mind attitude can be expected from us! "Nuestra Casa es Tu Casa" Lina is my partner, we live together, she is from Sweden, very laid back, great sense of humour, and a very happy person, she also speaks French, and does a mean robot dance!!
