Danny and Sharon have been wonderful hosts. They provided a thoughtfully put together welcome package for our arrival. We have had a comfortable stay and highly recommend it to Airbnb clients visiting Melbourne.
We arrived at the unit very late because our flight was delayed. It was 12:30am when we arrived, Danny was there waiting for us and he also has the house warmed up with heaters, it really makes you feels like home. You can find almost everything you need in the unit ( my sis said it's more than enough) , the host also prepared some groceries for us. The welcome note and introduction of the community are very useful as It's my first time traveling to Melbourne. I was staying with my parents and sister, we all love this unit!
Wonderful cottage. Cosy, quiet, comfortable and clean. And Danny had provided great food supplies! The sun came into the bedroom (very comfy bed) in the morning and the garden is beautiful. 10 mins to the beach, which was fantastic for walks.
The host did everything to make us comfortable. He was very friendly and responsive to our needs. Neighborhood is good as well.
Perfect location for our needs, comfortable, neat, and a very nice quite area. Close to all amenities
We were in and out most of the weekend so only spoke briefly to Danny. Greatly appreciated the groceries on arrival. Will be back next year.
Thank you Danny and Sharon for allowing us to stay in your cottage. Location was perfect for us and we really appreciated the basic groceries that were supplied and household necessities. It definitely felt like a home away from home.
This fabulous home away from home exceeded our expectations
Danny was excellent to deal with and was happy to accomodate a slightly earlier arrival
The cottage is located in a lovely neighbourhood which is beautifully quiet and close to some fabulous cafes and restaurants
We appreciated Danny's thoughtfulness in providing provisions for breakfast and other bits and pieces to help sustain us through our stay. (Especially the real milk for that much needed cuppa)
The cottage was very clean and tidy, bed was comfy and it was well stocked with videos etc although we didn't have time to watch them!
We would have no hesitation in recommending the accomodation to anyone and will definitely be visiting again
