Hello, my name is Gary and I live in Middle Park, Melbourne. I currently manage sixteen short to long term accommodation properties in Middle Park (6), Albert Park (3), South Melbourne (4), Port Melbourne (1), North Carlton (1), Torquay (1). Middle Park, Albert Park, South Melbourne and Port Melbourne. These are arguably some of Melbourne’s best inner city suburbs. I believe I am fortunate to live and manage properties in the area and meet and host wonderful guests.

My Airbnb hosting journey started when my wife, Jo and I bought Florence Court in Nimmo Street, Middle Park in 2015. It is a heritage listed, mid 30's Art Deco apartment block in where I now offer four fantastic short term accommodation apartments. I now operate sixteen brilliant short to long term accommodation properties in the area ranging from apartments to houses and from one to four bedrooms. They are all stunning and fitted out to the very highest standard.

As an Airbnb Superhost I offer my guests a concierge like service. I am an unashamed ambassador for the area where I have lived for over 30 years. Just tell me your interests and I will offer my recommendations.

Each property has a copy of "Adventures" which provides details my recommended local To Do's and the very best of nearby dining pleasures. There are many recommendations for guests of all ages.

Jo and I met playing tennis at Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club and were married in Paris just over 28 years ago. Jo is a part time teacher at the local primary school where she is a special education reading teacher. She has a real passion for books, real estate and interior design. A typical week will see her at a local café with friends, walking our dog in the nearby park, seeing a movie, attending her book club or a yoga class.

We have two children. Natasha (Tash) an Architecture - Design graduate working in the construction industry. When she is not out socialising or globetrotting she may occasionally walk our friendly Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever called Hudson. We love pets and welcome them at all properties.

Our son Louis lives in Portland, Maine, USA where he works for the Boston Celtics basketball team as Player Manager of their second team the Maine Celtics. He attended university in Boston, USA and represented Australia in rowing as a coxswain.

On weekends, given a chance, we will visit a beach side holiday apartment with stunning sea views in Torquay. Torquay is just over an hour’s drive from Melbourne. It is Victoria's surf capital and the gateway to the famous Great Ocean Road. In Torquay, we enjoy walks, great local food, wine, the many surf beaches and the company of friends. The apartment is available for stays on Airbnb. (Sleeps 8).

We have travelled to Europe, the Middle East, South East Asia and the USA where we have enjoyed Airbnb hospitality in England, France, Italy, Spain, Bulgaria, Croatia, Turkey, Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and the United States. I wish to share the same pleasure and the excitement of travel with my guests.

I am a self-employed Marketing Consultant whose consultancy, Gold Medal Marketing develops and implements winning business development programs for businesses in various industries. I have written and delivered a number of business development programs.

I am the honorary Chairman of the Australian Patients Association (APA) which advocates, educates and supports Australian patients. The APA strives to be the voice of and for Australian patients.

I regularly attend a local gym for regular workouts which I would be pleased to introduce to my guests.

On weekends in Winter I watch St. Kilda, an Australian Rules Football Club as a long standing and sadly long suffering club member.

With a family of designers I am always working on some property development or creative project for myself, family and friends.

I like to catch a movie or show and visit galleries and believing that you should “be a tourist in your own town” try get out and about to something interesting either near or far.

I look forward to sharing the great properties which I manage and my local experience with my guests.

I am available to ensure that you have a great stay.

Your host,

Gary Copolov.
