The Space

• Our house was built in the late 1800's so it is a bit rough but in the fantastic location of Albert Park;
• Rent is $45 ($55 for a couple) per night all-inclusive;
• We also have a 2nd very small double room ( hence we can accommodate 4 guests but check the calendar on the listing for availability;
• Furnished room inclusive of linen, bath towels, beach towels, Wi-Fi and laundry;
• DIY eggs & toast for breakfast, tea, coffee, milk, spices and fresh herbs from the garden;
• MYKI Cards (travel cards for the tram system);
• Within walking distance of Albert Park Lake & the Formula 1 race track;
• 10 minute ride on the No 1 tram will take you into the centre of Melbourne and 7 minutes on the No 96 to Southern Cross Station;
• 2 bicycles & helmets available for your use. 5 minute ride to the beach/15 min to St Kilda;
• Back garden complete with veggie patch and hammock;
• You will be sharing with a social couple and our little dog 'Jack'. We both work in theatre (Stage Manager & Audio Engineer) so are night owls and not early birds thus our place is definitely not suited to light sleepers that want to be tucked up in bed early;
• Feel free to spin a disk, have a game of ping pong, a strum on the guitars or just relax in the hammock!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Myself and my boyfriend stayed with Claire and cob for a week and it was great! It was the first air b'n'b stay we have done and I couldn't ask for more. The breakfast was a lovely surprise on our first morning and the bikes for us were so useful! Everything was just what we needed to explore the city- best location to be in! Thank you :)

  • What a good and relaxing place!

    My girlfriend and me were here for 4 days just before going to the great ocean road. The house is beautiful, the atmosphere really relaxing and Claire and Cob are so nice and really helpful if you need to know something about Melbourne and suburbs. Beach is only 5min walks.

    That was our first experience with airbnb and we give absolutely no regrets for having leavin the backpack for this beautiful house. Looking forward to come back! Thanks Claire and Cob !!! :)

  • We had the best stay! They are very generous and welcoming. We would highly recommend this option for accommodation for anybody looking for a friendly base to explore from. We loved the breakfast options and the real coffee machine was a bonus. All in all Claire and Cob are great hosts and you should definitely stay with them! The rooms were lovely, they provided myki cards and gave us advice into Melbourne's events, it was also in a great location to explore the whole of the city.You are sure to have a great time when booking your stay with them.
