Friendly Hospitable host, good location. Nice room in older apartment.
I have never used airbnb before and was a little skeptical and anxious about what to expect. Grethe was in constant communication and patiently guided me through the process. She is a very approachable and friendly host and nothing was too much trouble. The room was lovely as described; the bed very comfortable. This is an older style apartment and as such has the oroginal bathroom and kitchen - both very clean and tidy. The apartment is very central to the best of Melbourne with public transport close by (use tram 3, 3a, or 16 from Swanston street and get off at Acland. Or catch tram 96 from Bourke street). One thing I should have checked - my fault was the access to the apartment ( there are lots of stairs) as my partner has a disability. We had a wonderful couple of days - thank you Grethe
Great place from which to explore Melbourne.
I enjoyed a 5 days stay in Grethe' s apartment, which is well located, quite near to the beach, lots of restaurants and cafes around as well as the tram station 96 for reaching the city in about 20-30 minutes. The view directly to the beach from the bright sunroom is great and I slept wonderful and deeply in the comfortable bed. Grethe's hints were helpful for me to explore Melbourne. The only thing I missed was WiFi.
Wonderful stay at a light filled bedroom (together with private sunroom) 2 minutes walk to the tram to the city and in the heart of St Kilda - the sea baths are 5 minutes away. The flat is spacious and well kept. It is clean and filled with art. Grethe was a very gracious host and it felt like home.
My husband and I had an overnight stay at Grethe's apartment. The apartment was gorgeous, well furnished and a very comfy bed and what a great location. Grethe was an absolute pleasure to deal with, I only wish I had more time to sit and have a chat (maybe next time). I can highly recommend this to anyone.
Grethe was lovely, her spacious apartment was lovely. A warm generous and caring host. Light spacious apartment. Melbourne deco charm. A divinely comfortable bed. Cups of tea. Late night discussions. If you want privacy you have it. If you want to relax and hang out, a wonderful host. Great furniture. Grethe quietly works from home amongst piles of books and design references off the main lounge area so it's never lifeless. No awkwardness. Big bedroom with wonderful bed and big study table down other end of apartment next to shower/bathroom. So close to the heart of St Kilda. So kind and welcoming to my daughter. I'd definitely stay with Grethe again. The perfect airbnb host.
Very well located near Saint Kilda beach and easily accessible from the City, in this lovely art deco house I shared lovely moments with my hoste who did her best to make my stay unforgetable.
Completely enjoyable stay at Grethe's beautiful appartment! I was only there early and late each day, but every amenity was available, clean, and quiet. I will definitely book with Grethe next time I'm in Melbourne.
