Location

Research, Victoria, Australia

Research is a beautiful area within the shire of Nillumbik, it is nestled between Eltham, Warrandyte, Kangaroo Ground and on the doorstep of the beautiful and popular Yarra Valley with its numerous wineries and chocolate factory. Also close by and only a 5 min drive away is the new and growing Artisan Hills area with its small boutique wineries and organic farms. There are many places of interest to visit nearby including Montsalvat, St Andrews Saturday Market, Warrandyte, numerous walking and bike trails and great local cafes and restaurants. Research is only 26km from Melbourne CBD but feels like a million miles away from the city! A trip to the CBD is only 35mins outside of peak hours, also only 40mins to the airport. The local shops are 5 mins in the car or a 15 min walk and include a lovely cafe, bakery, post office, butchers, supermarket and liquor store, hairdressers, doctors and pharmacy. Takeaway food includes fish and chips, charcoal chicken and pizza.
We are also very close to the wedding venues of Ballara Receptions, Inglewood Estate and Montsalvat.

I live with my husband David in the beautiful suburb of Research which is on the edge of the bush yet only 26km from Melbourne CBD. I consider myself very lucky to live in such a dream area and yet have all the benefits of a wonderful city like Melbourne nearby, I still say the Eltham/Research area is Melbourne's best kept secret with its easy access to all the wineries, beautiful scenery and thriving local arts scene!! I originally come from Manchester in the north west of England, I traveled to Australia as a back packer in 1988 when I was 25, living in Sydney for 5 years and then moving to Melbourne for a better quality of life. I have travelled extensively around the world including Asia, South America, Caribbean, America and Europe; I am passionate about travel and enjoy meeting people. I am also passionate about music and food and love to experience all the wonderful live music and food in the local and CBD venues. I love Australia with it's sunshine, beauty and easy lifestyle, especially where we live and will enjoy the opportunity to share this with my Airbnb guests. Ours is an inclusive household for all races, religions and sexuality - all are welcome.
