Stroll to Clifton Hill for some classy shopping and latte sipping or take the tram up the road to Preston markets for some multicultural bargain shopping. Take time out in Edinburgh gardens or find peace and tranquility walking along the Merri Creek. You can even borrow a bicycle and follow the Yarra River path to Southbank.

Dear Sandra and Andrew,
we couldn't imagine better 1st experience with airbnb in your lovely superman house in Melbourne!
Thank you so much for your hospitality, we really felt like at home.
A little bit about the house:
It's super easy to find & arrive. It's a safe area with nice restaurants & cafes close by. The house itself is lovely and full of magic surprises like bicycles which you can use, spaceful bathroom, jacuzzi on the verandah, super comfy and large bed, all sort of coffees & sugars and more than interesting chats (as the house is so spaceful you can choose when to socialize and when to have your private time).
If we go back to Melbourne we definately know where we will stay! :-)
Very accomodating hosts, and the location was nice and convenient, with a tram close by to take you into the city. The room is quite large and the house is also large with a very relaxing vibe. I recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in Melbourne.
Sandra and Andrew were wonderful hosts. They warmly welcomed me into their home and made me feel a part of the family. Their home is warm and comfortable, as well as being perfectly located close to the Melbourne train and tram system. I look forward to staying with them again the next time I'm in Melbourne.
I had a wonderful stay with Sandra and Andrew at their very lovely home in Northcote. They were extremely welcoming and the location was just spot on for my needs. The tram at the front door, shops so close by and the vibe of the neighbourhood will definitely make me a return visitor! 5 stars out of 5 from me
I can't speak highly enough about my experience staying with Sandra & Andrew. A true family and charming host who paid attention to every detail, ensuring that my stay was seamless and enjoyable. The room is of the very good B&B quality, the breakfast is delicious, and what a pleasure to meet and stay with such a lovely family!
Great central location, a little noisy due to the main street outside, but that's urban living!
Gorgeous house and warm welcoming hosts.
Very likely I would ask to stay again when next I am Melbourne-bound.
Wonderful hosts, generous, fun-loving, and large family feeling. It was lovely to be taken in, to meet all the characters, and to be part of the gang, delicious meals together etc. Big room with lots of space, a wonderful work desk, wi-fi, kitchen space, washing machine and outdoor drying, etc. Can choose to be part of the whole, or independent in your own space. Ideal.
They get a 500 out of 500 rating from me!!
We were lucky enough to have a stay with Andrew and Sandra and couldn't have been treated better. This hospitality included Sandra making us fresh banana scones. Great couple. Place was lovely and clean and even the fact that our plane had been delayed and we arrived at 1.30 am didn't faze them. Thank you
This was my first time booking accommodation through Airbnb and I can't imagine having a better experience. Andrew and Sandra are warm, friendly, caring and helpful. My comfort seemed to be their goal and they delivered!! Location is perfect for exploring all that Melbourne has to offer. Andrew is full of outstanding recommendations too. My room was so comfortable and spacious! Such a wonderful place to call my home away from home. Thank you! I will be back.
sandra and andrew are brilliant hosts in a spacious well furnished quite beautiful house, located conveniently on high street at the westgarth tram stop. you will have a shelf on their fridge, use of kitchen, washer/dryer, large shared bathroom with shower,and one of the front rooms to sleep in. both hosts are amiable,highly educated, and generous people and a lot of fun to be with. this stay was a dream come true for me. it seemed like the way every family stay should be, with good cheer all around, and pleasant ambiance. i hope i can stay there again when visiting my daughter in northcote; i certainly would look forward to it. in a word: superb! wendy and sandy noyes
