**** BEFORE you book - please ASK us BEFOREHAND whether we are able to accommodate your preferred time ****

**** We don't want you to be inconvenienced by waiting for us. ****
**** And we would like to avoid receiving a poor rating just because we are not able to provide 24 hour hotel style check-in times ****

1. Please understand that we are NOT a Hotel that has a 24 hour Concierge service (LOL) - that means that we don't sit at home 24 hours per day waiting in the hope that someone will arrive!!! LOL

2. Apart from being AirBNB Hosts, we are just a regular family with a regular busy household with normal day-to-day demands that include going to work, going shopping, visiting family and friends etc and enjoying an active life. It will, therefore, make things easier for all of us if we work together to coordinate our efforts for your arrival as well as the day-to-day logistics of sharing our family home.

3. We aim to be flexible - we can often reschedule things to help out - if you give us sufficient notice.

4. We do, therefore, ask that you please show us some courtesy and understanding if we cannot be at home if you arrive during our work hours.

5. The great thing is that that if you arrive when we are not at home, there are over 550 shops, cafes and restaurants right here in our neighbourhood to have a drink and bite to eat until we arrive back home.

- The modern and clean WC is for our AirBNB guests only.
(This is separate from our own private powder room downstairs).
- The bathroom is easily accessible about 3 meters away from the two bedrooms.
- We have some emergency bathroom supplies, but please bring your own toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothpaste etc)

- We share the other bathroom facilities.
- But rest assured, we clean the bathroom every day.
*** We do respectfully ask our guests to clean up in the bathroom after themselves so that it always remains nice for us as well as our other guests ***

- Warm, friendly lounge with large sofa and chaise, lots of cushions and throws.
- A large 3-D TV / 3-D Blu-Ray player and 9.1 DTS surround sound audio system.

- You will enjoy a fully cooked breakfast by Chef Ong!!! YUM!!!
- Ong can cook everything from Good Ol' Bacon & Eggs to Asian Fusion and Congee!

*** We can help with this - BUT Please let us know all Dietary Requirements BEFORE YOU ARRIVE!!!! Once you are here, it is often too late for us to help ***
- We do our best to meet the special dietary requirements of our guests - but we cannot always guarantee to do so while maintaining the lowest possible price for guests.
- This is especially the case for short stays because the cost of catering to special diets (Gluten Free, Nut Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, Fruitarian etc) can be cost prohibitive for us.
- Our Number 1 priority is to keep our Price as LOW as possible for our guests while offering the very BEST value we can.

- You will have your own set of keys and codes to come and go as you like.

- Please respect that this is our private, family home - therefore, do not bring any unregistered guest into our home under any circumstances. Bringing strangers into our home causes discomfort and breaches our privacy, security, resources as well as insurance conditions.

- A CODE will let you enter through the Security gate into our large, community courtyard.
- You will know you're safe with our Security & Alarm systems.

**** As explained above, this does not mean you can simply arrive at any time between 11am - 9pm. PLEASE ASK us about a suitable check-in time!!!! ****

- We aim to be flexible, but please understand that we are just a regular family: we work full time jobs and lead busy lives - therefore, we cannot be at home if you arrive during our work hours.

- We will show you how the GATE, KEYS and CODES work.

WELCOME TO Cecil Street, FITZROY!!!! GREETINGS from Ong, David & Jordan! Ong, Jordan and David are now long-time and award winning AirBNB Hosts who love welcoming guests from across the globe. They especially enjoy the cultural exchanges and new friendships that come from opening one's doors to the world! ************************************************************************ ONG Ong is a 5-Star Chef, who was born and grew up in Phuket and Bangkok, Thailand. Ong moved to Melbourne over a decade ago and has since become an Aussie citizen. Ong is passionate about food and cooks up a storm in a local "Gluten-Free" seafood eatery called SWEET SALT in nearby Northcote. Ong's passions include TENNIS, local Thai cuisine, TENNIS, eating great food, TENNIS and cooking.... and not to mention TENNIS!!! LOL! Ong is an active and multi-award winning member of the Melbourne Tennis Centre and you will see him on TV sitting in the crowd at the Australian Open Tennis every year!!! ************************************************************************ DAVID David was born and grew up in sunny Melbourne and loves this city! David has lived and studied overseas in Germany, Phillipines and Spain - but he still calls Australia home. David studied and worked at Monash University and has worked in academia, corporate and small business. David currently works as a Commercial Interior Designer and draws on his background in Psychology and Health to create inspirational and healthy living spaces. ************************************************************************ JORDAN Jordan is a white, fluffy, toy poodle who loves to play fetch, receive lots of cuddles and give big kisses! Jordan was born in Adelaide to famous Australian poodle Exhibitor "Gwynson Poodles". At 8 weeks old Jordan decided to visit Melbourne where he immediately fell in love with David and Ong, so he decide to stay! Jordan is always excited to meet new people and loves to greet guests at the front door. Jordan always stays downstairs so that guests can enjoy a "poodle-free" zone upstairs. ************************************************************************ Jordan, David & Ong stay on the ground floor. There are 2 separate bedrooms upstairs on the first floor (each of which is a separate AirBNB Listing) dedicated to our AirBNB guests. ************************************************************************ AIRBNB Article from 12th November 2018: "Celebrating Australian Airbnb Hosts on World Kindness Day" On World Kindness Day we’re celebrating our Airbnb hosts around Australia and acknowledge the wonderful contribution they make to our community. This year, David and Ong celebrated three years since they started hosting on Airbnb. Along with their poodle Jordan, they share a private room in their townhouse in Victoria’s trendy inner city suburb of Fitzroy on Airbnb. David and Ong’s Airbnb journey has been an extremely personal one. While initially becoming hosts to help make ends meet during a tough period and time of illness, they now continue to host because of the joy they find in meeting people from all around the world and their ability to pay it forward to others. “We initially became Airbnb hosts out of necessity, but we continue to be hosts out of a passion for good hospitality and gratitude for the life it enables us to lead, namely continuing to live in our own home. We now have friends all over the country and the world.” David, Airbnb Host One of the unexpected surprises that came out of hosting on Airbnb is the ability they now have to be able to help others. David and Ong have opened their home for free to support people in need of accommodation and do a weekly food drop for the homeless in Melbourne. “Every week, I would pick up pastries at the local bakery for my Airbnb guests and they would always add more than I had ordered, as they didn’t want the food to go to waste. With a bit too much food to feed my guests I started giving this to some of my mother’s elderly neighbours, most of whom lived alone. This has now grown into a food drop to homeless people around Melbourne, which I do each week with my mum.”
