You have your own room of course, however the bathroom, the kitchen, and the lounge room are shared with us, but we like sharing =)
We also have heaps of movies, TV series, and martial arts videos that you can borrow.
If you have a car, we have a space for you too.
We like when people feel like home.
Interaction with Guests
We like spending time with our guests and make them feel welcome and we try to be as helpful as we can! After all, a big part of why we joined AirBnB was to meet travelers! However we also respect people's privacy.
The apartment is located 2 minutes away from Chapel street, next to all the action!
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.
There is a tram that takes you to Richmond and St Kilda in less than 20 minutes. You could even walk to the city and St Kilda if you're up for a walk (30-40 minutes).
Other Things to Note
Lina's robot dance show requires a booking
A couple of things:
- Check in time depends on whether I am at home or at work, if it's a week day , check in can be at 5pm.
- Don't worry about the check out time =)
- No pets
- Please use common sense, so don't throw parties, don't bring extra guests late at night, no smoking inside, clean after yourself, etc. etc.
- You can smoke outside of course.
I stayed with Ernesto and Lina for 6 days recently when I went to visit my daughter in Melbourne. It was a great location, very close to South Yarra Station and the shops in Chapel Street. Couldn't have been better. Although I didn't see much of them (as I was out a lot), they were very friendly and accommodating. Nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone.
The house was clean, comfortable, and great location. They made me feel like i was really at home. Also they were kind to tell me which restaurant around the house was good. I was really happy to stay here.
Ernesto was a wonderful, considerate and friendly host! His house was clean, beautiful and conveniently located just a stone's throw away from chapel street and the train station. Really enjoyed my stay over here!!!
The appartement is 15 minutes from city center, with a lot of shops just at the corner. The flat and the room are really good place to stay. And Lina and Ernesto are really nice persons. I hope I'll see you soon :-)
Wonderful week long stay with Ernesto and Lina. They are very welcoming, interesting and gracious hosts. I loved talking to them about their own travel adventures. The apartment is clean, comfortable and is in a great location in South Yarra. There are supermarkets/ cafes/ shopping/ cinemas/ trams/ subway just a few minutes walk. Great neighborhood and great city. I wish i lived closer to Melbourne so that we could hang out more:).
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!
About the Host, Ernesto & 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, diving, 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!!
