I run a successful consulting firm which keeps me fairly busy during the day Monday to Friday but I still find time to travel overseas every year for at least one month. I can easily host a single traveller or a travelling couple in my lovely house located in a magical area close to the beach, the park and the centre of our city of Melbourne.
The location is within 400 metres of the famous St Kilda Beach and just as close to the Albert Park Lake reserve where the Grand Prix is held in March each year.
I am in my early 50's, ride a motorbike for fun, love skiing in Europe and am accustomed to having friends and guests stay over and am happy to provide you with ideas for your Melbourne stayover.
The only reason I occasionally host guests from airbnb is because it provides an opportunity to meet interesting people from around the world. Therefore, I will look at your profile, to see how you have described yourself and any partner you might be travelling with, to make my decision. Airbnb stays are very different from staying in a hotel.............. and you need to understand this as a prospective guest.
My experiences with airbnb have been fantastic and I have met people I will know for the rest of my life. Interesting, happy, engaging, respectful and cat friendly people who have understood how to share the house and amenities.
