Welcome to Australia!
We have a fantastic four-bedroom home to share! There is a choice of rooms available for you with a queen bed and a shared bathroom. We can provide breakfast, including tea, coffee, toast and cereal if that's what you'd like.Wireless wi-fi is available as are laundry facilities.
There is a lovely sunny and rustic garden to relax in, or for breakfast and lunch and a park at the front!
We are a couple (originally Scottish) whose children have grown and left home. My daughter and I used air bnb in the US and loved the experience so we would love to welcome you to our home!
We live in Keilor Park, just a 10 minute taxi ride from Melbourne Airport. (depending on your arrival day and time, we might even be able to be your taxi from the airport).
Our house is just 200 metres, or 2 minutes walk from buses which link with the train into the city.. The house is about 20 kms from the CBD, and it is about a 25 minute drive into the CBD. However if you intend to use public transport during your stay you should take advantage of the visitors Myki pack that you can buy from the Skybus depot at the airport for $14.
Please just respect our home.
Room is totally different than pictures- doesn't worth it's price at all. Very, very small (about 4m2) and very messy (with papers everywhere and big printer there, like some person have been just left and didn't clean up. Just 1/2m2 to move around there. We didn't have space to put our luggage and some small belongings, let alone unpacking.
Lighting is the bulb without lampshade.. It was very bad exerience. We don't reccomend Theresa as a host at all.
As you know, I explained that since the premature birth of our grandson who was critically ill, my son and daughter in law had been living with us. I told you that I didn't have the room that was on the website and to feel free to look somewhere else. I also said that despite of the very, very short notice that you were still welcome to come.
You might need to reassess your measurements. The room is actually 18 square metres. I'm actually wondering where you did leave your luggage, since it certainly wasn't outside of the room......and yet you say there was no space inside the room to put it. That is certainly a mystery.
And just in case you have deleted it from your messages, here is the conversation about picking you up, written by you.
We can pay 20$ both sides. Taxis pay taxes :)
I am sorry that you found it such a bad experience. However, I take heart from all the positive comments by each and every one of our other guests.
In fact, I wonder if it is because you skipped off without paying and the fact that I mentioned that in my review of you, whether that was why you decided to give such a review so totally different from all of our other guests.

Theresa was helpful, informative, cheerful too, also her extended family interested for you to have an eventful time in Melbourne. Had some good chats about Glasgow, New Zealand, USA. Well travelled knowledgeable hosts with handy hints and advise if needed. Neighbourhood quiet, handy for buses. Comfortable bed, nice clean sheets & towels etc.some good books on bedroom shelving. spacious shower. Great breakfast, cereal, toast, real coffee, fresh fruit juice. Memorable moments. Would look forward to returning.
Theresa and her family were very welcoming, friendly and informative about the area. We enjoyed our stay
We were so fortunate to find Theresa and Alec when our flight from Sydney didn't leave us enough time to secure the ferry to Tasmania. Theresa's home is close to the airport, in a quiet and very pleasant suburb of Melbourne. It's really a lovely area, and her home is comfortable and inviting. Theresa herself, is warm and engaging and very helpful. She and her husband, Alec, immediately felt like family. Theresa drove us into Melbourne to shop at the Victoria Market for the day. I wish I had had another day to enjoy their warm personalities and hospitality. You will certainly find comfort and friendship here!
A great place to stay, i highly reccomend this accomodation. Theresa is an exceptional host who goes that extra mile to ensure your stay is an enjoyable experience. My girlfriend and i were made to feel so welcome from the moment we arrived, the house is very clean, spacious and so relaxing, just what we needed after such a long journey. The location is very good and the local bus service is just around the corner, so easy to get out and about. Theresa and Alex helped us so much during our stay and we so enjoyed our time, We highly reccomend this accomodation "relax and enjoy".

I am (what I consider to be) a 'young' 57 year old who is coming to the US for a month in September. I am meeting up with my daughter (27) who has been working/travelling in Canada. I am originally from Scotland but have lived in Australia for more than 20 years. I still work full time as a high school teacher and Jacqueline is a commerce graduate who works in data analysis. We reckon that we are both friendly, outgoing people. In the past, as a family we have hosted exchange students from Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Japan and China!
Having has a great experience using Air bnb in the U.S. my husband (Alex) and I have now decided that we can reciprocate to travelers who would like to stay with us in Melbourne
