Welcome to the West!!
Just a short train or car ride from the city is this huge, bright two bedroom townhouse waiting for someone to enjoy!
Behind the red front door is a large living area and full kitchen with small outdoor area. Up the spiral staircase to a very large master bedroom, bathroom with laundry (including washing machine), separate toilet and smaller second bedroom with two single beds, leading to a wonderful north facing terrace. Just imagine a balmy evening, a g & t in your hand, prawns on the barbie provided and listening to your favourite tunes. Plenty of room to while away the hours reading a book or sunbaking on the banana lounge, it doesn't get much better than this. Oh and we've recently installed air conditioning and heating upstairs and there's also a gas heater downstairs so you'll be warm in winter and coooollll in summer!!
When you do decide to venture out there's a fantastic choice of coffee shops right on your doorstep and an array of cuisines including African, Japanese, Vietnamese and Indian thanks to the multi ethnic community in the west. Or if you'd rather cook at home and eat your dinner by candlelight on the terrace than you can shop locally at the wonderful gourmet supermarket but you must also visit nearby Footscray Market and Little Saigon for not only fresh fruit and veggies as well as meat and seafood but a wonderful ambience that will transport you straight to Vietnam (with out the jetlag) and there's a bus right out front that will take you straight there.
Everything is right on your doorstep from supermarkets to cafes, to parks and quirky, interesting shops and only 5 mins walk to Seddon station and 10 mins to the city by train.
This townhouse is a great place for families or couples traveling together and we can happily provide fold up beds at an extra $10 a night if necessary.
As keen travelers ourselves and avid users of airbnb we hope we can provide a fantastic alternative to a hotel or hostel, a home away from home and we are only to happy to help in any way to make your stay more enjoyable so feel free to call us at any time, we live in the west only a few minutes away, we love it and we know you will too!!

Interaction with Guests
i will meet and greet guests on arrival and be contactable during the stay if needs be. i also live close by the property.
Seddon is a great place and growing by the minute but is still quiet and retains its village like atmosphere. There's great cafes and fantastic coffee,a gourmet supermarket,wine shop and a variety of restaurants from African (my favourite!) to Malaysian and Italian,and all within walking distance to the property. Just down the road is Footscray,a predominately Vietnamese community with a bit of African too,so wonderful food choices everywhere,including the Footscray Market with its fresh fruit and veg,meat and seafood. Seddon also has an eclectic mix of shops ranging from gifts shops like Sedonia to vintage shops like my very own "Once More With Feeling" at the front of the property on Charles St. So you must drop in and say hi when you stay! Its a great friendly neighbourhood that you will fall in love with.
Just a short walk from the property is Seddon train station,and a ten minute journey to the city. Across the road from the property is a bus that will take you down to Footscray, the Footscray market and also Footscray station. And also nearby is Middle Footscray station again a short trip to the city or to nearby suburbs. If you have a car there is free parking outside the front door.
No smoking inside the building.
No additional unpaid guests.
Please leave the house as you find it.
Jo was great as a host. The house was just as great as what the listing showed. Beautifully decorated interior too! Just a short 15 min drive from the city so no complaints on that front either. Bunch of cafes/restaurants within walking distance from the house too. Overall a great experience. :D
A great place right in the heart of Seddon.
Our trip coincided with the Seddon Festival, which was a great day for kids and adults - the whole street was closed to traffic and full of street vendors and activities.
Easy walk to Seddon Station. A great variety of food and Cafes nearby of excellent quality.
We loved staying in your place Jo. Your quirky sense of humour and your eclectic decor are terrific. Great shops nearby. Thanks for being so helpful.
Welcoming and warm home, made all the more by Jo's accommodating and helpful approach. In a good spot, close to great local restaurants and transport.
Thanks to Jo for welcoming us into your townhouse. It was a lovely house and the description is accurate, it is huge. Easily coped with 5 adults, and the upstairs court yard was ideal for a few drinks and food.
Couldn't have hoped for any more., thanks.
We were all made to feel so very welcome and the atmosphere so relaxing, easy and very special! We enjoyed a quiet location and solid nights of quality sleep! Thank you Jo!
Jo's place was great! Our whole family stayed there and it suited us perfectly. excellent kitchen and living space for a family and the rooftop terrace was very nice. Would happily stay there again.
