Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We had a great stay the house was very comfortable clean and quiet - Margot was a very friendly and helpful host and we loved Melbourne

    December 2013
  • Margot was extremely inviting and friendly. Our trip was a bit challenging because my grandmother was in the hospital, so we were visiting her every day. Margot checked on us frequently, was always compassionate but also cheerful. I don't think we could have asked for a better hostess. The house was wonderful, very comfortable and the location is excellent, easy to get to the city or to the beach. Great restaurants nearby and a wonderful spa nearby too! Thanks Margot for making this such an easy experience!

  • We enjoyed staying with Margot. She was a great host who gave us lots of ideas for exploring Melbourne. She got us started with myki and figuring out public transport.
    George, the dog was lots of fun and very cute.
    Margot's place is lovely. We especially loved its proximity to great coffee and the train.
    We'd definitely stay again if we're ever in Melbourne.

  • Margot is a great host and her lovely house is in a great location in Melbourne close to the beach and CBD. We had a great time in Melbourne and her house is in a great location very easy to find places to eat and to move around without a car. We love to go back to Melbourne and stay with Margot any time!!! I definitely recommended it ;o)

    November 2013
  • Wow! From the minute we arrived (late!) Margot and George could not have been more warm and welcoming. Margot was incredibly helpful and had thought of absolutely everything, from parking permits, myki's, and Apple TV (thanks Rod ;-) ) to eggs, bread and shopping tips. We had fabulous weekend and wouldn't hesitate to stay with Margot and George again.

    October 2013
  • Wow! What a great weekend with fantastic accomodation! This was our first experience with Airbnb and it won't be our last. We will be back to stay with Margot every time we are in Melbourne now.

    Margot has a beautiful home with all you need for a great weekend. It's a 100 times better than any motel you could ever find, and miles cheaper!

    Margot was a delight! So was George the Dog!!!!

    Margot provided us with a simple breakfast for if we didn't want to go out. Everything was perfect, linen, towels, couch, tv, shampoo etc in the bathroom. She lives here, so it is just the perfect house. Margot even has a wide selection of different types of tea!

    Margot was out on the Saturday night, so it was sort of like our place anyway!

    Thanx Margot, your home is beautiful and we enjoyed staying there!

  • Margot has a wonderful house. It's very spacious and beautiful. I was so impressed by it. The train station is literally around the corner (less than 5 minutes walking) which made my life really easy. She is a very nice host and was very very helpful when I was there. i would highly recommend it to anybody. It is a house great for both individuals and families.

    October 2013
  • I had a fabulous stay with Margot and her puppy George. He was a pleasure to have around and it was great to take him out for walks. The house was a beautiful open space and true to all the photographs listed. Very comfortable with every amenity I could possible have needed plus more. Margot went above in beyond to make me feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this place to stay and will certainly be recommending it to any visitors I have to Melbourne. Thank you Margot for the wonderful experience.

    October 2013
  • Margot's home is everything you could ask for: Quiet, beautifully appointed, and spotless. Look no further! 5 stars.

  • Margot and Rod make a great team, they communicated perfectly from the moment of booking and were there to meet us when we arrived. They were a fantastic source of local information and were contactable if we needed then whilst being fully respectful of our need for space as a family.
    The house was beautiful, spacious, comfortable, well equipped and in a lovely neighbourhood; both a short walk from the beach and a short train ride to the city. They provided us with parking permits and MYKI cards, essential for using public transport in Melbourne! As well as lots of other practical advice and information.
    Our children particularly enjoyed spending time with George, Margot's adorable and extremely well behaved Poodle; they loved taking him for walks on the beach and will miss him!
    It was a real pleasure to meet Margot, Rod and George - they are expert Airbnb hosts and would be perfect for anyone coming to stay in Melbourne; their skill being to tailor their involvement appropriately to the needs of their guests. As we were there as a family they introduced us to the concept of the Aussie BBQ where we met some members of their family (by chance Rod's children were the same age as ours) as well as their neighbours and their children...lasting memories for sure!
    We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay with Margot and Rod; they made us feel really welcome in Melbourne and our time here provided the perfect platform for our 7 months in Australia.
    Regards Mike, Ellie, Phoebe and William

My name is Margot and I have lived in this fabulous house for many years. I look forward to welcoming you as a guest. I work in the corporate world by day, but take a keen interest in theatre, movies and art after hours. I am very interested if you are into the arts and we can share experiences. I travel extensively and especially enjoy Vietnam, Singapore, North Africa and Peru as destinations to name a few. Happy to accommodate any special requirements you may have to make your stay a satisfying experience.
