Please also check the location map, like much of Melbourne, the property is located close to a train line. It is very well soundproofed and trains run approximately 7am - 11.30pm - shorter hours on weekends. No complaints from guests about this yet.
If you would like anything arranged for you, no request is too large or small - just ask!
I have a few rules to ensure that both you and I enjoy your stay here. Not too many, just a few!
1. My neighbours are lovely. Please respect them by keeping the noise down, which means:
2. Absolutely no parties!
3. No smoking inside. You may smoke on the balcony or courtyard
4. The place must be left securely locked up on departure
5. Please turn all appliances off when not in use, i.e. when you leave the house. This particularly relates to the heating and air con - I reserve the right to enter the apartment to turn these off if they are on and you are out.
6. Remember not to take anything with you!
Thanks and I hope you have a great stay :)
Chill out after a hard day sightseeing in the comfy loungeroom with huge sofa and plenty of books
The positive aspect of my stay was the location in northcote. It is a very short walk to the Main Street and close to tram and train station.
We were surprised though that this terrace that is listed as an 'entire home' is infact a shared listing. The 'apartment' is merely the upstairs level of the terrace so not much privacy and not what we signed up for.
Also the place is right on a train line and close to railway crossing so the trains beep every time they go past and are very noisy.
Thank you for the feedback Nicola.
The property is clearly described in the listing, with the laundry and entrance hall being shared with the downstairs apartment. The price is reduced to take this into consideration. This is a lovely apartment and the many positive reviews for this listing from happy guests will bear this out. Potential guests are recommended to read the listing and the reviews carefully.
It is true that the listing is close to train line, this is also described in the listing. I'm sorry you found the noise disturbing. Earplugs are provided for light sleepers but most have no problem. Again, potential guests should carefully read the listing and all reviews to see if the place will suit them.

Great place to stay! So lovely and sunny, clean but at the same time "homely".
Incredibly convenient, I was in Melbourne for a gig at the Wesley Anne in the centre of Northcotes super up and coming scene and it literally took me 10 mins to walk there, 5 mins to the station.
The trains are almost like a free philosophy lesson.. Maybe that's just me :P
Rach was very kind and helpful, no dramas at all :)
Rachel's apartment is very well located and comfortable despite the cold November Melbourne weather. We enjoyed our stay as the location was excellent for our circumstances. Northcote's High street is well worth a stroll and a meal or two.
Rachel was fantastic to deal with when I book her apartment for my tenants while my property was being renovated. She was very quick to respond and assisted with every question I had in a friendly manner. My tenants enjoyed their stay there.

About the Host, Rachel
I am a cheerful person who loves and is passionate about living in Melbourne, and all it has to offer. I love trying new places to eat and drink around and am always ready with a recommendation! I'm also a sucker for comfort so my place is a little nest. I love introducing new people to my city and the North in particular and will make sure any visitors have a great time.
