My home in Richmond is a two level spacious warehouse apartment located in the inner city of Melbourne
From the front door you enter into a garden courtyard and BBQ eating area. Inside the home the downstairs area has the kitchen eating area, a lounge TV area and formal dining. The laundry is also located downstairs.
Upstairs there is a private guest double bedroom with private bathroom and toilet and also a cosy private TV reading room as well.
The apartment is located 5 minutes from the City centre and is accessed by both trains and trams.
At the end of my very quiet lane is the bustling Bridge Road that has cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and great shopping.
One kilometre away is Victoria street that is famous for an excellent variety of Vietnamese and Asian cuisine
In my neighborhood I live in a very quiet residential area and where the apartment is situated in a non thoroughfare lane so there is no through traffic.

we had a nice time at Helens House. the room was big enough and clean with a comfortable bed. we had our own bathroom and living room with tv. it is really near to the cbd of melbourne, only 10min by tram.
we can really recommend to stay here if you want to visit Melbourne and want to be near to the city.
I was nervous before my trip to Melbourne. I knew nobody in the city and it was my 1st time using AirBnB. However having Helen as a host quickly took that away ! Helen was warm, helpful and trusting and it was a pleasure to stay with her. Her house is lovely and just a 10min tram ride into the buzz of CBD, 10min walk from the MCG and just off the main Bridge road of Richmond where you have a lot of shopping and dining options.
I highly recommend her place for those looking to experience Melbourne by living just outside the city center.
I couldn't have been made more welcome. Having Helen's place as a base really made my trip to Melbourne. Highly recommended.
Helen has been very welcoming and helpful during my 2-week stay at her house. Everything was well kept and clean. The location is very handy to the shops and tram. I highly recommend her place!
Beautiful huge loft apartment with a cosy bedroom and access to kitchen, washing machine etc. Great location in Richmond with plenty of food nearby and easy to get around from. Helen was friendly and made a good host even in spite of having a broken arm during my stay! Recommended
Wonderful apartment, location and host. Thanks Helen, we very much enjoyed our stay.
Helen is a delightful being, and welcomed Jana and I very warmly when we arrived at her home. As she was staying away for a few days we enjoyed the full comfort of her home.
We only had a short stay but felt at ease, and the kitchen, bedroom and bathroom were very nicely appointed. We both highly recommend staying at Helen's accomodation.

Helen is a very welcoming and friendly host and I felt at home from the minute I walked though the from door, with my room and her spacious apartment more than I had ever expected. Helen's very clean warehouse apartment is extremely well located, providing easy access to the city and Melbourne's world renowned sporting facilities. I will definitely be back. David
Helen is extremely generous and welcoming. We enjoyed our stay in her beautiful home. The location is fantastic too, with easy access to Melbourne CBD, cafes and bars, sports grounds and the outdoor scene. A great spot.
Helen was an excellent host. It was my first time to Australia and she was very accommodating and helpful. Her place is immaculate and very comfortable.
The location is perfect, just off Bridge Street which has a ton of great restaurants and shops. There's a metro there as well, so easy access to downtown, though its close enough to walk (about a mile or so).
I plan to return to Melbourne, and would love to stay at Helen's place again!
