Whole house (2 bedroom) available most of February. Outside then we're able to offer a private room with ensuite.
Located in the heart of trendy South Yarra, we have a furnished room available with a private ensuite.
We are offering a fully furnished bedroom in a stand-alone modern townhouse in a quiet laneway in the centre of Chapel St, Toorak Rd, Punt Rd and Commercial Rd. South Yarra train station / trams, supermarkets, restaurants and designer shops are all close by.
Downstairs of the house consists of a large open living, dinning and kitchen space, study, toilet, courtyard and small feature garden. It also has a garage which we use, but a street car pass is available. Facilities include wifi, a washing machine, tumble drier, ducted heating, dishwasher and DVD.
Upstairs has two rooms – yours and ours. Your room has a private ensuite with toilet and shower, double bed with linen / pillows / towels supplied, built in wardrobe, window, a small chest of drawers and is carpeted.
We are a friendly gay male couple working from our home office during the day and are often out at night.
The South Yarra train station is a block away - this is two stops from the city.
Trams stops are also a block away, on two different lines. We're seriously spoilt for choice!
Smoking is permitted outside in the courtyard (one of us smokes). No pets sorry.
As we also live in the house we expect each party to respect the privacy of the other.
You will have your own key so you can come and go as you please.
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 :)
David & Neville were lovely, welcoming & always up for a chat.
The room is great - really spacious with a private bathroom (best shower ever!) and the location is amazing. So close to everything.
Would recommend ten times over!
I stayed with David and Neville for over 3 weeks when I first arrived in Melbourne to start a new job, and I was sad to move out when I found somewhere longer-term to live! They really made me feel at home. They are both very hospitable hosts, very easy to get on with, and very interesting guys! We had some really nice chats from time to time, but they also gave me space to do my own stuff when I had things to do. The house is in a great location, very close to South Yarra station and to Chapel Street, but tucked away on a quiet backstreet. The room is comfortable (and bigger than it looks in the photos!), and it was great to have an en-suite shower. I wouldn't hesitate to stay with David and Neville again, and I hope to keep in touch with them. I really couldn't have asked for a better start to my time in Melbourne.
