  • The house is clean and quiet. My host Belinda was very accommodating and helpful. She even lent me her extra bike to go around Melbourne....

  • Balinda is a very nice host,she is atentive and really kind, her house is in a very fun apartment building where we met a couple that became our friends, we had a good and calm time with her. :)

  • Belinda's home is every bit as comfortable and stylish as the photos suggest. The location is perfect for access to Elwood, St Kilda and Melbourne CBD with the beach only a short ten minute stroll. A regular tram and rail service is easily accessed a few blocks away and the Tennyson shops, cafés and laundromat are very convenient. I plan to stay with Belinda the next time I'm in town.

    Thanks for being a great host!

  • Belinda's place is fantastic, a beautiful renovated art deco unit in a terrific location. Made me wish I was living in Melbourne. Belinda is a great host and very accommodating. I had a lovely brunch with her and her friends. This was by far one of my favourite places I've stayed through airbnb, I hope to stay with Belinda again later in the year.

  • Had a pleasant stay at Belinda's place. Took me and my partner about 5-8 minutes to reach her place from Ripponlea train station, pretty straightforward. Beautiful interior and very clean. Toilet is a little old but it was alright. Belinda is such a nice and warm person. Always telling us to make ourselves feel at home and comfortable. Heater in the living room also helped us during the freezing weather.

    thank you again for having us!

    November 2013

    September 2013
  • Had a great time at Belinda's place. Everything was super clean and nice and it was great to stay in such a cared for place! It's a train ride out of town but we managed to hang out in local places like St Kilda and Elwood which is highly recommended as a chilled out, pretty area.

About
Whilst orginally from Melbourne, I have spent quite some time living overseas (most recently Tasmania!) and am thrilled to be back in Melbourne. I have an ongoing interest in the arts and currently work for an arts/events organisation situated a pleasant 30 minute bike ride away in the city. I like cycling on my faux-pony, op-shopping for hidden treasures and am so happy to be living in such a diverse and vibrant place. What can't I live without ............. my loved ones, being exposed to interesting adventures whilst taking time out for the quiet moments.
