SHARING WITH ...
Hi, my name is Xavier. Please note I LIVE IN THE APARTMENT with my partner Damien and you'll be sharing the apartment with me. I'm 29, male, Australian and gay. I work in social policy and enjoy hosting people visiting the city - letting them know where's good to eat and shop (all of the best places are hidden down laneways!), and what's good to see. I like practising my Spanish too (me gusta practicar español). I generally enjoy a quiet home but enjoy a good dinner party too!
The apartment is close to lots of shopping, including one block from Bourke St Mall, Swanston St, and Hardware Lane restaurants, and two blocks from Collins St and Melbourne Central shopping centre. It is across the road from the new H&M Flagship Store at GPO, the new Emporium Shopping Centre, the Strand Arcade, and a short walk to QV.
It's also close to universities including RMIT, University of Melbourne (a 4 stop tram ride from the front door), and Victoria University's city campuses. A 20 minute walk will reach most CBD attractions including Crown Casino, Melbourne Museum, Melbourne Aquarium, Parliament, Flagstaff Gardens, the State Library, the Arts Centre, and Southbank.
The apartment is located in the heart of Melbourne's public transport network. This means a short walk and one ride on a tram, train or bus will basically get you anywhere in Melbourne. The apartment is closest to Melbourne Central Station (which links to every train line in Melbourne) but is also a short walk to Flinders St Station, and a 10 minute walk to Southern Cross Station where the Skybus and regional and interstate trains arrive. The trams 19, 57, 59 are at the front door, and the trams (phone number hidden) and 96 are all within one block, and within a few blocks is almost every tram line in Melbourne.
Strictly no pets, no smoking and no drugs thanks. Also I work full-time 9-5 Monday to Friday so being respectful on weeknights is appreciated. Helping to keep the place neat and tidy is also appreciated.
Xavier is an excellent host. Very flexible and accommodating. With my erratic schedules, he always found a way to make it work.
The accommodation was comfortable and well equipped. The apartment has a great view of the city, tastefully decorated and in the perfect location for me. Practically a stone throw to where I work. Also being just across shopping district and right in between Chinatown and Hardware Lane, there's heaps of choices of places to dine out!
Very generous and hospitable host and respects your space.
The apt was very clean and centrally located.
It was a very present experience.
The standard of the apartment was excellent and the host was very helpful and respectful.
Xavier is the perfect host. He's welcoming, accommodating and very generous with his home. He's also very responsive to any questions that pop up. His home is centrally located and both that and Xavier make visiting Melbourne a stellar experience!
Friendly and Accommodating host. Made me feel at home and had a great stay overall.
Clean and neat apartment and location is excellent.
I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Xavier's place. I was warmly welcomed and felt at home right away. Xavier was very friendly and was happy to suggest restaurants around the area or just simply have a chat over the breakfast table. I had a lovely room and full access to the shared bathroom, kitchen and living areas. Located right in the centre of the CBD the location was wonderful and close to everything including trams and buses. I would happily stay here again.
The host, Xavi is an excellent host! First day of arrival due to flight delayed, waited for me till 11am! A very nice chap, friendly, easy going and a cool guy :) He is also a very considerate host and respect the guest and trying his best to make me feel like home.
I totally have no problem living with him at all.
Really feel like home. The place is very comfortable, neat and clean.
Most important is location is fantastic and famous coffee shops and restaurants just a stone throw away and very convenient as all the amenities just nearby. Oh yal, this place is quiet too and low density apartment which make this place kinda exclusive.
This place really awesome!
All in all, the host and the place is fantastically super awesome!
