Guest Access

The Neighborhood

Clarendon Street is a short walk and has something for everyone - beautiful wide streets and footpaths, cobblestone lanes, lots of restaurants, cafes and bars, eclectic shopping, a great market, it's much more local and friendly, and still within walking or tram distance of the city

Getting around

Catch a tram literally at the front door (#55) to take you straight to Melbourne Convention Centre, Southbank and Crown, the Aquarium, the CBD, then on to Queen Victoria Market and even Melbourne Zoo.
The domain interchange stop is just two blocks away, where you can catch trams to almost anywhere in inner Melbourne. It takes just ten minutes to almost everything - for the city, Federation Square, Southbank and major sporting venues, take any tram northbound. For St Kilda it's #16, Chapel Street #6, Toorak Road #8.
For drivers, it's two minutes to Citylink, twenty to the airport. Street parking is free overnight and on weekends.

Other Things to Note

There are NO cleaning fees.
I will email directions for arrival following booking confirmation.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We were very lucky chosing Judy as our host in Melb. Everything is just perfect: location, room, bathroom. Situated on the 11th floor you have a great view over the city and you can even watch the ships coming in or leaving.
    Judy is such a lovely host, very good to talk to and was always keen to offer the best recommondation we asked for.
    In short: there's nothing to complain about. We loved our three nights in her apartment and especially appreciate the evenings talking to her. Thank you Judy for everything, we enjoyed it very, very much and really want to come back one day.

  • My stay with Judy was fantastic. The accommodation was clean, comfortable and quiet, it was close to supermarkets and transport. Thank you so much for a lovely stay in South Melbourne, i shall return and highly recommend you.

    April 2014
  • Judy was a great hostess and her place was in a fantastic location - especially if going to Albert Park for the races. We woke up in the a.m. to the sound of F1 cars, you could see the jets and planes from the balcony. Downtown Melbourne was literally ten minutes via tram and a tons of places to walk to. Judy was helpful in providing us rain gear to bring to the F1 race, we were able to wash our laundry before leaving and she was just a pleasant individual to chat with. Thanks Judy for the great, clean accomadations!

  • I had a lovely time in Judy's apartment. She really pulled our all the stops and was incredibly helpful when it came to telling where to visit.
    She has great knowledge of the city and incredibly warm and welcoming.

  • I couldn't have asked for a better host on my first visit to Melbourne! Judy is a fount of knowledge and extremely great to talk to. I could have easily passed hours just chatting with her.

    On top of a great personality, Judy has worked hard to make her place welcoming to guests. I felt more like a friend staying for a visit than someone sharing space. I loved that there was so many brochures available in my room to help me in Melbourne since I wasn't sure what I wanted to do when I arrived. Her place is very convenient to downtown but also all of the areas south of the city. By far the best part of her place, though, is her view! It is simply stunning.

  • I never realized how much Melbourne had to offer until I stayed in Judy's beautiful penthouse condo. There is something to do and see from every direction out her front entrance. The building she is in is very clean and secure, even late at night. The sunset from her balcony is postcard quality. I had not made any definitive plans for this part of my trip so. I took Judy's advice everyday. I covered a lot of ground by walking and the tram was always an option if I got tired. It was always nice to come home to Judy and share my daily adventures. She has a genuine interest in people and is so easy to talk to that we kept each other up later than we should have. I would truly recommend this host to anybody who is looking for a clean, comfortable place to experience Melbourne.

    February 2014
  • Judy's place is perfectly located in the heart of South Melbourne, with great transport links to the city. The apartment is clean and tidy with plenty of privacy, but Judy also gave me a warm welcome and made me feel at home. A great place to stay if you want the freedom to come and go as you please whilst also having your own space. Thanks Judy!

    February 2014

  • An ideally located apartment in South Melbourne, close to public transport to the CBD and the Melbourne Parklands. Judy keeps a smart and comfortable apartment with great views. We were welcomed warmly and shared travel experiences while there with our generous host.

Educational Quality Assurance & Administration
Hello! I'm an empty nester with a lovely spare room available to guests. I work in the city with a government department, in educational quality assurance. Hosting overseas and local guests has been a great experience over the last few years and enabled me to achieve one of my dreams too - criss-crossing USA by overnight trains, car, bus and plane, staying with Airbnb hosts in some great places. What a fantastic trip and never to be forgotten experience!!! My travels include New Zealand, Bali and Vietnam, and there's a lot more to see yet. I have an enquiring mind, enjoy the company of interesting people, love music and movies.
