I am a lover of wine, friends, art and life.
Brilliant space, Magus had provided me with plenty of information prior to the day of arrival to make the settling-in period as short as possible. The location proved to be a winner for all my friends who came to Melbourne for the weekend. If there is a large family or group of friends this is the place to consider for your visit to the best city in Oz and quite possibly the world!
Magnus was very helpful and easy to deal with throughout the whole process. Definitely one of the best hosts I have dealt with. Place is in a fantastic location, very clean and of a great size. House feels very secure and safe. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to close to the city, in a area with nice drinking and coffee shops, and a clean apartment.
We had such a great stay while at this place. Magnus is one of the best chaps on the planet and was super helpful!
There was 6 of us + an 18 month old and we were very comfortable staying here. Great to be in an area where you can find good coffee, walk through the community park and browse through the many cool shops. Was so helpful to have a parking permit for our vehicle too. Thanks so much for having us. It made our stay in Melbourne very memorable : )
I enjoyed this stay very much - Magnus is super knowledgeable and helpful, the place is beautiful, the bed big, the location great. I didn't have time to stay long enough on this trip - looking forward to the next, thank you
Magnus and Cat were warm and friendly hosts. They made me feel very much at home during my 6 day stay. Fitzroy is a great location for exploring Melbourne.
Great house and location!
Great central location near funky Gertrude Street. Fantastic house for sharing and catching up with friends in central Melbourne if you don't want the formality of a hotel.
We had a really wonderful stay in Magnus's spacious home. It is perfectly located in a vibrant area of Melbourne and an easy walk to both the MCG and Melbourne Park for the tennis. Magnus and Cat could not have been better hosts. Magnus was excellent with all communications regarding our stay and it was lovely to meet Cat and receive helpful hints on great places to dine out.
The house has lovely big rooms and is wonderfully furnished for larger groups. Our family of six was extremely comfortable the whole weekend and the house stayed cool despite the searing temperatures.
We would highly recommend Magnus's home as a great place to stay in Melbourne, and Magnus and Cat as kind and gracious hosts.
Thank you for a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable stay.
Warm regards, Paul & Sarah
We spent a just few days at Magnus's house, but we met as long-known friends as we had had a long correspondence with him beforehand. Magnus is a wonderful host: he showed us around the house and neighborhood, recommended places to visit and even helped us with a few reservations (since Magnus is a winetrader - restaurant managers and owners know him well). Overall we had great experience and felt ourselves very comfortable at his place - as it really is very close to the city and at the same time is situated in a very quite corner. I'd certainly recommend Magnus's house to anyone wishing to spend some time in Melbourne.
Location, location, location!! Perfect for us, very close proximity to Brunswick St/Smith St with all it has to offer, cool bars / restaurants / cafes / shops etc etc. Easy travel into the city and walking distance to the MCG, great for us as we based our trip around the cricket.
Great house with a very accommodating host, me and my 3 friends had a great time. A perfect first Airbnb experience and we would definitely stay again.....
Magnus and Catherine were hands down one of our favourite guest couples! Their generosity and general fun chat made us feel like we were the guests and they the hosts. You should infact pay them to come stay with you, as our weekday evenings have never been so fun! Come what may, guests, hosts; you and your belongings are in safe, friendly hands. We look forward to hopefully catching up with this duo again in the future!
This is the perfect place for exploring Fitzroy and Melbourne. It is near a very trendy area and is comfortable. Magnus is without doubt a very good host and is highly recommended!
Magnus will provide you with a wonderful experience. Fitzroy is an amazing suburb in Melbourne which offers great food, coffee, shopping and nightlife... encapsulates all things Melbourne really! Magus is a great host to family and friends, and I know anyone who meets him will experience his wonderful hospitality and kindness. Enjoy!
I love Magnus. He is the epitome of style and knows more than a thing or two about Melbourne and its wonderful eating and drinking establishments. If your staying at Magnus' house then you are in for a great time. He will look after you and his house is in the best location. Don't forget to ask him about the cafe around the corner that serves arguably the best Seven Seeds brew in town.
Magnus is a natural host and gets real pleasure from ensuring people are happy, comfortable and at home in his home. I have had the benefit of his wonderful hospitality many times as his friend and think any guests staying at his great Fitzroy place will have a great time.
