Colleen's place was excellent! She made us feel at home from the minute we arrived. It was very clean, comfortable, and conveniently located. She even provided parking for us! We would definitely stay there again!
Colleen was very welcoming and warm, her little unit is very neat and tidy and clean, and the bed was exceedingly comfortable! The neighbourhood is quiet considering it is such a busy road, and the area is central, easy to get to, and feels very safe.
Rebecca, I have tea, coffee and biscuits for all guests.
I assumed that you read my blurb. When I said please make yourself
comfortable and use what you wish, I thought that you would make drinks
if you so desired. Please feel free to ask for what you wish with me and
I stayed at Colleen's place for just one night and it was very convenient and cosy. There is a tram line that runs along the main road directly outside the building that takes you into the city. The room itself has a lovely comfy bed, a ceiling fan and plenty of cupboard space. Colleen was friendly and accommodating. Great spot and good price for a short stay.
Colleen made me feel extremely welcome and was very helpful. I was only staying one night, I arrived late and was off again in the morning. My stay was easy. Colleen was a great host.
What a great place to stay! Colleen is so friendly and helpful, and she knows great places to visit around the city. The room is really nice, which such a comfortable bed. I highly recommend this place
I was visiting my son in Melbourne--and Parkville happened to be minutes away from his place. I was made to feel really welcome and the room was comfortable and quiet. There was some noise from the main road but not a problem. Really enjoyed a jog around the park in the morning (early before it got hot!). Had to leave early AM for a flight but Colleen was very accommodating with this (tried not to make too much noise!) A great stay and highly recommend.
Colleen made us feel very welcome, by explaining in detailed and constant communication how to get to her place. The accommodations were clean and comfortable, and the location was excellent and easily accessible by the public tram system. I highly recommend her place!
