I had an amazing time staying with David and Neville. It does feel a lot like staying in an actual bed and breakfast. The room was extremely cozy and having my own bathroom was nice. The boys were very welcoming, easy-going and accommodating. They made sure I felt comfortable and right at home. The location was great with many bars, cafes and shops. There's access to so many trains and trams. I'd definitely stay with them again next time I am in Melbourne.
Enjoyed my stay here. It's a great location, very conveniently located to everything you may need. Got along well with David and Neville - they are easy going and friendly but leave you alone when you want to be left alone.
In general, staying with David and his partner was a lovely experience for my friend and I. The place was very welcoming, and very conveniently located off of Chapel St. in South Yarra which was a prime location to explore shopping and the nightlife of Windsor and Prahan. The room was fine, with an air conditioning unit. The private bathroom was especially nice, great water pressure in the shower. We rarely crossed paths with David and his partner, so if you are looking for a more private/quiet experience, this is definitely for you.
Nice clean room with own bathroom.
David and Neville were the perfect hosts. Kindly accommodating us just before the crazy Christmas period. Their place is in an awesome Central South Yarra location, just off Chapel Street but far enough away to relax. Neville and David were the most warm and welcoming hosts sharing lots of local tips and some great conversations over some well-seasoned Aussie Rieslings. I definitely recommend staying here!
Great place, fantastic hosts, and in a perfect location for access to trams, city, the restaurants/bars/pubs/clubs on Chapel St, close to the Prahran fresh food market too. I originally booked 1 week but ended up extending it for my full stay in Melbourne. Competitive rates too! Both David and Neville are very friendly & welcoming, will leave you to do you own thing as you want, or happy to be social and both very interesting guys to chat to. Highly recommended.
Very convenient location (contracting just off Domain Interchange so easy tram access or walking distance) and South Yarra is a v nice area. David and Neville are both very friendly and welcoming, room is decent and en-suite bathroom is great (amazing shower!) Decently priced too. I've extended my stay here for another 2 weeks :)
