Airbnb Users Beware:
This host canceled a booking for international visitors a few hours AFTER
the agreed upon check in time, because she 'didn't want to deal with it'.
They were left with all of their suitcases and no-where to go in 40 degree
heat when the security pin-code, provided by the host, did not work. They
had to leave their suitcases and catch a tram into the CBD where the host
worked, to pick up a key (as instructed by host). 20 minutes later, when
the guests were on a tram half way to the city, Airbnb called me to say the
booking has been cancelled by the host and that they are not to enter the
I was left with international guests with nowhere to stay on a Friday
night, confused and in tears from the way Rachel spoke to them on the
phone. It was a horrible experience for all of us and the host was stern
and unapologetic to say the very least.
Obviously, this kind of behaviour is entirely out of Airbnb's control but I
do feel that future guests should be warned.
I've only ever had good experiences on Airbnb before this and feel that I
should also mention how helpful and friendly the Airbnb staff were when
helping us find alternative accommodation (thanks again).

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.

Had a great, easy stay with Rachel in Northcote. The apartment was well appointed and in a great location. Meeting Rachel was lovely and I suspect if we'd stayed a little longer her knowledge of the area would have been invaluable! As it was the list of local attractions left in our apartment contained a great recommendation for breakfast. Would recommend to anyone.
It couldn't have been any easier. Everything went without a hitch, and the apartment was incredibly clean, neat and efficient. Rachel was an awesome host and I'm definitely looking forward to staying in Northcote again when I come to back to Melbourne! Thankyou so much once again Rachel!
Rachel's apartment is convenient located near great cafes, bars and public transport. It is warm and inviting space and my girlfriend and I had such an enjoyable stay. Rachel compiled a list of helpful information about the area which was very useful. She is a perfect host, with a lovely apartment in a fantastic area.
Thank you Rachel.
