The Space

Located in the beautiful, quiet, tree-lined streets of Armadale, one of the best suburbs of Melbourne. I currently have a room available in my lovely townhouse, which is a real home away from home for you to enjoy your stay.

Your Accommodation......
There is just me and my 2 very friendly cats in the house so there is plenty of space in the house. I am very easy going and love meeting new people and very happy to help where I can. My cats are also very friendly and love meeting new people too ... especially if you rub their tummies.

There is a lovely lounge/dining room and a spacious kitchen that you are more than welcome to use (with space in the fridge and cupboard provided for your own food).

There are also 2 balconies (ground and first floor level) overlooking the the beautiful quiet, tree-lined street, along with a courtyard with outdoor table and chairs for 6 and a BBQ.

Other facilities:
* 1 bathroom and toilet plus a separate toilet and bidet
* Washing machine and dryer
* A large screen TV in case you want to spend some time on the comfy couch
* Provide your own food but you may use my condiments. A wide variety of caffeinated and herbal teas and coffee are provided too.
* Wireless internet access is included too.

I am happy for you to stay whether it’s for one night or a couple of months.

Conveniently situated, the house is located just a 5 minute walk to the nearest station (Armadale) and less than 5 mins walk to the tram.

Easy access to:
- easy train access to the CBD - 13 mins to the Flinders St
- 5-10 min tram ride to the bustling and trendy Chapel St with lots of clothes shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs
- a short tram ride to the beachside metropolis that is St Kilda
- 10 min walk to the designer shops and cafes of High St Armadale
- one train stop to the busy shopping and restaurant precinct of Glenferrie Rd Malvern

There are two trams within a 5 minute walk away that take you to the city or to St Kilda or Chapel St not far away. You will be find lots of great shops, bars and restaurants in all of the nearby areas as well as anywhere you choose to visit in Melbourne.

About Your Host.....
I am a very relaxed and easy going person. I have traveled a lot myself so love meeting and sharing with other travelers. I also love hosting and will help you with advice where I can and recommend some things to do and see during your stay. When I am around and not busy working, I am happy to have a chat. Always available to answer questions when I am free.

Please contact me with any questions about the property or the area.

Interaction with Guests

I am a very friendly person and happy to interact with you and maybe even share a glass of wine or even a meal every now and then if we get along well. At the same time sometimes I do appreciate being left alone but this is less often than I enjoy sharing.

The Neighborhood

Beautiful tree-lined and quite expensive neighborhood with lots of lovely old houses and a few older apartment blocks - all only 2-3 stories. No high rises. The streets are wide, tree-lined and very quiet. Its all very green.

Trams or train only 5 mins walk away and only 15 mins to the CBD

You pretty much have your own fridge in the kitchen and a small cupboard area.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Janeen is an excellent host, the apartment is spotless and the location fantastic.

    March 2014
  • Janeen was so kind to accept our very late request. We had a good room in a convenient location for one night. Janeen was so friendly and communicative. although we spent only one night and had a chance to talk a bit only in the morning, she was so keen to tell us about Australia and culture differences, to give some advices. I loved that she was smiling or laughing a lot:)

    March 2014
  • We were international medical students doing our rotation in Melbourne had difficulties looking for a short term lease. Janeen kindly helped us out and had housed us for the 6 weeks we were here.

    Her place was really convenient and it was accessible to both trams & train stations easily. Shopping for groceries and nice cafes were in the vicinity.

    Janeen is a wonderful individual who is so welcoming :) She made us feel at home instantly and we had the freedom of going on and about during our odd working hours.

    Her two cats Maya and Saska are beautiful little princesses who are cute and welcoming to guests! They always greeted us after a long day at work which made us feel even more at home.

    In a nutshell, a beautiful quaint place to stay with an awesome host!

    Would pop by again if we are going to cross by this area again! :)

    See you there then Janeen!

  • Thanks Janeen for helping us get settled in Melbourne! Great location and good value for our month long stay.

    November 2013
  • Thanks Janeen for providing a good space in a lovely location.
    The bed was comfy, the weekend was quiet and the cats were very friendly.

    All the best with your future endeavours.

  • First of all, Janeen is beautiful host, very helpful, nice to talk to and generous. She gave us feeling of home and plenty of good information.
    The house is nice decorated, although it isn't big, but very light and comfortable. Location is also very convenient (5 minutes walk to train or tram station, from there just 20 minutes ride to CityCenter or 5 minutes on tram to Chapel Street).
    Over all it was a great week, definitely recommended for first time Melbourne visitors!

    April 2013
  • We had a good time staying with Janeen and her purrfect cats in Armadale! The house is bright and light and airy, and our room was beautiful and comfortable. Janeen was a very gracious and generous hostess, sharing a bottle of wine with us a couple of times - and providing surprise birthday cake! - and we enjoyed our stay a lot. The location is good for travelling to the city, and Armadale itself is very nice.

    March 2013
  • Janeen is a very friendly, accommodating and well organised host. She has a very classy two storey-townhouse offering very comfortable accommodation with easy access to bathroom facilities. It is in a leafy and well established suburb and reasonably close to good public transport. Unrestricted street parking is generally available close to the house, and a permit can also be supplied if needed.
    We very much enjoyed our week long stay and found it easy to come and go as it suited us.

    March 2013
  • Janeen's house was really a home away from home. We had all we needed to feel comfortable. The house is great, in a very nice area and with easy transport to the city center. Our room had a very good size and everything was ready to receive us. We loved it. Janeen is a great person, really generous and willing to help. If you are looking for a quiet nice place with easy access to the city, this is the ideal option.

Hi there, I love people, getting to know them, sharing meals and good wine with them and helping them out. I am fun and easy to get along with and happy to go out for a drink and a laugh. I am also quite deep and spriitual ... when appropriate. I am a business coach in my own business so my working times are variable depending on what I have on at the time. I have 2 very affectionate and fluffy cats so you need to not be allergic to cats but they will only want pats from you, if you want to give them. I have travelled heaps over the years and lived in England for a while so have seen most of Europe and a lot of the US, a bit of Africa and also Canada. France is my favourite country in the whole world ... so far. South America is next on my list.
