Interaction with Guests
I am very happy to assist with any special requirements you may have in Melbourne. You are welcome to knock on my door or send me a sms. I can recommend wonderful eateries, coffee shops, dog groomers, can provide dog minding and dog walking if requred; I am also mindful of privacy. As the apartment is totally self contained with its own private entry you have a home away from home but I am more than happy to provide any local information you may require.
The neighborhood of Clifton Hill is very friendly and welcoming. We have a very high owner occupied neighborhood which fortunately creates a great sense of community and pride in our properties. For those who travel with their doggies you will be pleased to hear Clifton Hill has the greatest number of doggies in any suburb of Australia. Thus we are very doggie friendly and restaurants, coffee shops, bars would welcome doggies.
We are well and truly spoilt for parks....all around this area are parks and in fact one can walk, cycle, run etc for hours and feel as though one is in the bush. We have the best of both worlds, a city retreat with a rural environment.
One can wander along the river and enjoy a local farmers market most saturdays either at the Abbotsford (converted to a community based environment) Campus or the Childrens Farm... a real farm with a delightful cafe.
Smith St, Fitzroy has wonderful second outlets as well as boutique shopping.
Many supermarkets are close by and you can always get home delivery from Coles.

About the Host, Wendy
Hi my name is Wendy. I enjoy the opportunity of being a host and for guests to have a wonderful experience of both staying at my apartment but also getting to know the area of Clifton Hill, a truly unique part of Melbourne.
I own a doggie who is very friendly, athletic and welcomes other doggies. However you do have your own private area so if you don't want your doggie to be in close proximity to mine that is not an issue.
I enjoy playing bridge weekly, going to the theatre and the opera...movie going is one of my relaxations as is cycling and walking.
I have travelled extensively and also lived in Europe. Meeting others is a wonderful experience.
Please be in contact with me about my listing and if you have any questions or would like me to make a booking for any of Melbourne's special ocassions please ask . I look forward to welcoming and hearing from you.
