Interaction with Guests
The whole apartment is available for guests to utilise, except of course my bedroom and ensuite. I am home most nights, watching my new favourite TV series or a movie.
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
Catch a #55 tram at my door step to take you straight to Melbourne Convention Centre, Southbank and Crown Casino, the Aquarium, the city centre, then on to Queen Victoria Market and even Melbourne Zoo.
The domain interchange tram stop is just two minutes 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.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay very much in this lovely, clean and spacious home, as our host is very generous, kind and helpful to us. The decorations are also very pleasant.
Our host also offered me a lot of useful information for visiting the city Melbourne which made our trip go more smoothly . Another thing I couldn't thank my host enough is that she helped me find my cellphone back which was left by me in a taxi. It saved me a lot of time and trouble.
My host is great and fantastic and I think choosing her home to stay is a very smart decision. I highly recommend this home to other visitors to Melbourne.
2nd time back staying with Judy for the tennis, and still such a fantastic airbnb host!!! Thanks for your hospitality and great company!!! We love staying with you!!! Highly recommend!!!
My husband and I stayed with Judy for 5 days. Her apartment is lovely; comfortable, nice location, near public transportation, great views, and safe and secure. What I valued most was our hostess. Judy made us feel most welcome and she went out of her way to help me when I found out that my mom was hospitalized while I was staying with her. Our guest room was full of pamphlets and brochures about things to see and do and she even had miki cards for us to use, which you must have for the trams and buses. She gave us our space yet also invited us to visit with her when our paths crossed. If I ever have the opportunity to visit Melbourne again, I would surely love to stay with Judy.
Judy has been a wonderful host and I could not have asked for a better house. The entire house was very neat and clean and it was nice having a separate bathroom. There is a tram station right in front of the house so you can go to the city in less than ten minutes. It was my first time using airbnb and i had such a wonderful time at Judy's! I will definitely stay at her place again if I ever go to Melbourne.
주디네 집 완전 강추합니다ㅎㅎ 집 앞에 바로 트램 타는 곳 있고 집 근처에 맛있는 레스토랑과 마트도 있어요. 집도 엄청 깔끔해서 놀라실거에요ㅎㅎ 화장실도 따로 쓸 수 있어요~주디는 매우 친절하고 유쾌해요ㅎㅎ 정말 강추합니다.
Judy has a great apartment with a wonderful view from the 11th floor. I really felt home and comfortable. Also Judy's sightseeing recommendations were very helpful. When Judy was home she was always up for a chat.
Judy is a great host and very kind person. I was so happy to stay with her and whenever I go to Melbourne again I will definitely stay with her again.
Judy is a very nice host. We loved her apartment (just a few minutes by tram away from the city centre) and she made us feel welcome and at home. She gave us advice on places to visit and how to reach them and we enjoyed talking to her in the evenings over a few glasses of wine. As we wanted to try Kangaroo meat, she let us use the BBQ to make sure we had an authentic Aussie experience! Thanks Judy!
The neighbourhood was very safe and so very conveniently located. Judy was welcoming, friendly and flexible with our arrival and departure. The apartment is just as it looks, which is homely and cosy. The pool, gym and tennis court looked fantastic but we didn't get an opportunity to try any of them out. This was our first Air BnB experience and it was such a fantastic one.

I love living in marvellous Melbourne, and hosting Airbnb guests has been a great experience for me over the last few years.
It has enabled me to achieve some of my dreams too - criss-crossing USA by train, plane, car and bus, seeing Paris ooh la la, walking inside Stonehenge, and staying with Airbnb hosts in all these places.
I started my travels late, but I'm making up for it now.
My trips include New Zealand, Bali, North America, Vietnam, France, Wales and England, and there's a lot more to see yet.
I have an enquiring mind, enjoy the company of interesting people, love music and movies. I'm never without my Kindle either.
