The Space

We have travelled extensively and have appreciated the hospitality and the knowledge of the people we have stayed with. We would like to return that hospitality.

We are located in a quiet street in Port Melbourne. Our access to the city is 10 mins. by tram which is 5 min. walk away. Or feeling a little energetic only 25 min. walk.

If you are driving here we have free parking in the street. Or traveling from the airport there is a great airport bus that takes you to the city.
Then you take the 109 tram. Upon booking I share with you details to keep it easy.

This open, light and airy space is on the ground floor – it is private for you – we live on the next two floors. You have your own shower and toilet, tea and coffee facilities, access to free wi fi, dvd’s and cds along with a 120cm plasma tv screen. Also happy for you to use the washing machine.

The new bed is Queen size and adorned with new quality Sheridan linen.
The room contains a desk for that incidental work and a comfy couch for relaxing.

Guest Access

Happy for you to have access to the fridge to store beverages and snacks. Also complete use of the kitchen is fine.
Light - basic breakfast supplies are available for your use.

The closet café is a 6 min. walk. In the evening if you wish to dine locally we are close to many historic pubs with amazing food. Ask me where to go for a local’s night.

Interaction with Guests

We are Gay friendly.

I keep the calendar up to date. This assists with the instant book option.

You can easily relax, recharge your energy and come and go as you please. You are very private from our living space and as appropiate there is informal interaction.

The Neighborhood

Our location is fabulous for city access for the Australian Open Tennis, theatre and business. Conference centres are only 10mins walk away. The Grand Prix in Albert Park is 20min walk or easy tram access. We are only 3 tram stops from the Crown Casino or a 15 min walk. Book now for the Grand Prix.
We are in a great location for the Comedy Festival and Melbourne Food and Wine Festival. Along with the Melbourne Cup,
Docklands, Matilda Bay Boutique Brewery,
Spirit of Tasmania and Etihad Stadium.
If you are involved with the Port Phillip Bay yachting activites we are 1 km away from Port Melbourne Yachting club.

Port Melbourne has bay beaches, innovative cafes, boutique pubs and top class restaurants.

Getting Around

City sights and Collins St shopping is only a tram ride away.
5 min walk to 109 tram line - then 10 mins by tram to the city. We provide you with a myki travel card, local maps and information on what the sights.

Other Things to Note

I enjoy cooking so I like to share my baked goods with guests. I am becoming famous for Raspberry Friands.
