About this listing
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. There is a fold up bed that can be added to the room if you require to have 3 people in the room.
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. The cost of a taxi is about $23.
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.
Other Things to Note
If you require 3 people to use the room the second bed is a fold up bed. This will obviously limit the space in the room but probably makes for a more affordable family rate rather than having to book 2 separate rooms.
Please just respect our home.
Theresa is a fantastic host who went out of her to ensure my stay was comfortable and convenient and the accommodation is very private and suited my needs perfectly.
Theresa was very welcoming from the moment Jeff arrived. They were so understanding and appreciated Jeff busy schedule. Priceless. Thank you.
The hosts were very welcoming with the house conveniently close to the airport. The room and bed were comfortable and warm and it was a lovely three day stay.
Dear Theresa and Alex, it was wonderful staying with you! Thank you for your hospitality, lovely dinner and inspiring company. You made me feel like home. Your place is ideally located near the airport without having the noise. I´ll be back next time I am flying in to or out of Melbourne. Cheers!
Theresa and her husband made us feel very welcomed and were very accommodating. After getting in to Melbourne late, Theresa made us dinner which was so nice after flying all day. In the morning we had breakfast and she drove us to the airport. Great stay and very nice people!! Thanks again Theresa!
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.
The reservation was canceled 47 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.

About the Host, Theresa
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
