Great place in a great location, both Fitzroy St and Acland St within walking distance.
Place itself is very tidy and spacious with everything you need to relax or even cook your own food.
Brief mixup with keys initially but Jan was quick to help us out :)
Dougal and Jan have the best place! Very nice (just like the pictures or even nicer), clean, great location, comfortable with everything you may need. We couldn't ask for more. Dougal and Jan, even though they live nearby respected our privacy but at the same time made themselves available for any question or help if needed. I absolutely recommend a stay at this place!!
Here are just some highlights:
Really good shower with good water pressure, most comfortable beds, available car parking spots on the street with a permit for your use, bright and airy with lots of natural light coming in, heats up and cools down very quick with air conditioning in each room, very clean, great feeling in the place overall, nearby all you need including restaurants, supermarket and tram.
Waiting to be back in my next visit.
Immaculately clean & tastefully furnished house. Lovely quiet street, only 5 mins walk to Acland Street & trams. The hosts Dougs & Jan were extremely friendly & efficient, answering all of our questions immediately. We'll definitely be back on our next visit to Melbourne as it really doesn't get any better than this!
Jan was a great host: very responsive and clear and proactive communication. He has been very flexible in arranging whatever was needed to make it a perfect stay.
The cottage itself is very spacious, large bed- and bathrooms, dito living room and a lovely terras. Everything was very clean, all kitchen equipment available and whatever is need to play some music or watch television.
The location of the property is perfect: close to the beach and near a couple of trams that can bring directly to the center. Restaurants, bars and supermarket are only a couple of minutes away.
Best AirBnB house I've stayed in - in Australia and across Europe. And as a former host I'm picky. Immaculate, clean and nicer than the photos. Great location for St Kilda Beach, cafes, trams into the city, Luna Park. Dougal and Jan are generous hosts, lots of good quality towels, nice linen, stocks of toilet paper, dishwasher tablets, washing powder etc. And a packet of plunger coffee, teas and fresh milk in the fridge. I didn't cook there but the oil, salt and pepper provided would have been really useful and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils. A good quality wireless/Bluetooth speaker and Apple TV was a nice surprise. They really have thought of everything.
The bed was comfortable and the spa bath a great treat after arriving from a long haul flight. They were very responsive to my text messages and while I didn't need any tips or help myself I felt I could have asked them for anything if I had. If you were travelling with young children the house would be pretty toddler proof, no stairs or sharp glass coffee tables etc.
Excellent location on a quiet street near the ocean in St. Kilda. Great cottage which is very neat and clean. A fantastic stay - we'd definitely book again!
We had a great time in this 2bdrm house. Very spacious kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Really close to St Kilda beach, cafes, restaurants and the tram station to go into the city. The hosts were lovely and went out of their way to make our stay as pleasant as possible - even went and got us a high chair at the last minute!Would highly recommend this place.
it was great to have both of them back again, highly recomended guest, my Home was left in tiptop condition, love to have them back anytime soon... ;)
Very nice and friendly guests. Dougal and friend left our appartment very clean.
Dougal and his friend were nice, polite and friendly guests. They left everything clean and tidy, it was a pleasure to host them. Recommend!
Really nice, clean, polite guests I host even if just for one night. Hope to host you again in Venice!! See you soon. Bye Domenico
Dougal and Jan were superb guests. Witty, funny and great to have a talk with. They left everything nice and clean. Hope to see them again some time!!
Great guest. Good communication. Thank you Dougal. Ivana
Dougal & Victor were very polite, friendly. Excellent communication. They took great care of the place. Welcome back any time.
Great guest, very friendly and understanding.... Also left a great book for us to read which was really sweet
Dougal was one of the nicest guys I've never met.....I was away for the weekend when he and Vic stayed, so we only ever had email/text contact. Having had a bad experience a few years ago (not on Airbnb) when someone did some extensive rummaging through my things, I had some uneasiness at first about being away. However, the great communication from Dougal made me feel (rightly) that my place was in very trustworthy hands. When I returned the flat was spotless and everything had obviously been treated with great respect.
I cannot recommend Dougal enough. His partner also rents out an Airbnb space so they know the importance of being able to trust and be trusted.
What more can I say!?
it was great to have both of them onboard, though it was rather a short trip,(single nite) my Home was left in tiptop condition, as it seems untouched, Highly recomended Guest, will be welcoming them both soon ;)
