I have a private room available in my apartment. The room is suitable for one person.
You will have full use of all other facilities including wireless internet. In the bathroom there is a washing machine and a clothes dryer. The toilet is separate from the bathroom. The kitchen has a cosy eating area, a gas stove, a fridge & a microware, plus all cooking utensils & equipment.
The lounge has heating, a TV & a DVD player. Off the lounge is a small balcony with a pleasant view over Kew.
Kew is one of Melbourne's older established suburbs where you will find banks, good coffee shops and several restaurants all within walking distance of the apartment.
If self catering is your style Kew offers an excellent selection of fresh food options in the local shops. You can park your car in Pakington, just ask me for the "Resident's Permit".
Travel to the CBD can take 20-40 min, depending on time of day. The 48 tram, at the end of Pakington Street (a 3-5 minute walk) will take you into the city via Bridge Road (clothes shopping), the MCG & Melbourne Park.
From the Kew Junction you can take the 109 tram that travels to the CBD via Victoria Street where there are numerous Vietnamese restaurants.
A bus from the Kew Junction gives you access to Brunswick Street, the Italian restaurants of Lygon Street and the CBD.
All things were very nice!
Kate is very friendly host and help me so mush and answer to all my questions. Room is very comfortable, clean and quiet.
And I can use kitchen.
Kate's apartment is in very nice place, not far from city center.
Will be nice to return back.
I really enjoyed my stay with Kate at Kew Tranquility. This homely unit is close to public transport and only a couple of minutes walk to the bus or tram stop. It is situated in a lovely part of Melbourne and the city is not far away. There are lots of nice restaurants close by where you can have a meal or buy a takeaway. I highly recommend this place to stay, it will really enrich your visit to Melbourne.
Great place to stay! Clean and classic apartment with a friendly host!
Kate is a nice host, her apartment and room is quiet and neat as described, just note that it is positioned on the 3rd floor and without elevator.
Actually I booked the room for 4 nights but only used 2, because I left the key in the room in New Year Eve and my phone as well. Unfortunately Kate was traveled so that I couldn't be able to contact her ask for spare key until the day I should check out I received the email. I still much appreciate her hosting.
Respond to my first Airbnb experience in Boston, I got the review from the weird host, which was completely a disaster, got a dusty tiny room under the staircase with a removed lock hole at the door, no one was in the apartment, and with whole floor empty on the ground floor in dust, that's why I worried my safety and called the help from Airbnb. I never met the host after stayed there for a few days. Unfortunately that was my first time in Airbnb, I don't even know I should leave an honest comment for him.
Kate was very organised - everything I needed was there which made my trip entirely hassle free. Thanks Kate.
Note however - Wifi connection is to a wireless modem which may have a smaller download quota than a broadband modem connection i.e. don't expect to download a video sequence/movie etc without first checking the download quota.
Kate is very generous person. She provided me many valuable advices. Her apartment is near public transport. It is peaceful and quiet neighborhood. I highly recommended Kate’s apartment. Thank you Kate for everything again.
Liked my stay with Kate very much. She likes travelling herself,so she understands a travellers needs and even got up at 6 am to make a cup of coffee the morning I left.
The times we met she had inspiring information, especially about walking and the city.
The room and shared facilities were as told. The location is close enough to the city when you travel by public transport.
It was my first AirBNB experience.
Kate was a friendly and welcoming host. The room was clean, comfortable and good for my needs. I spend most of my day visiting friends and Melbourne landmarks but I thoroughly enjoyed Kew Tranquility while staying at Kate's apartment. I would certainly recommend her place to any prospective visitor and would like to stay there again when I am in Melbourne next time. Thank you once again Kate.
As many before me have obviously discovered and commented on, Kate as a host, is a warm generous person, both in spirit and kind.
Her home, while an older unit, is spotlessly clean on arrival, a state which is continually maintained during the stay. While the unit is not large it is very comfortable and all kitchen and laundry facilities are available, along with tv/radio/internet.
Located in the inner eastern suburb of Kew, it has good public transport close at hand providing quick and direct access to the Melbourne CBD, with all regular shopping requirements again readily available within 200 metres of the property on the High St.
The block in which the unit is located is well secured, as is the unit. Kate and her property offer guests excellent value for money and is highly recommended.
Just back from a few days staying with Kate and had a great time. I'd never used the site before but as soon as I was there, she made me feel right at home and was extremely friendly and helpful with any questions I had. There were even tourist leaflets ready for me in my room for when I arrived! Easy access to get into the apartment, great location by Kew High Street and only few minutes walk to the Tram stop taking you straight to the city. Given I'd never been to Melbourne before but managed to find my way around, in and out the city without any trouble, it was perfect. Would definitely recommend staying at Kew Tranquility to anyone else and will be looking her up again if I'm back in the area.
