I'm from Melbourne and am actively involved in the arts sector as a producer and publicist.
Loved my stay in South Yarra at David's place! Great location in a cool and quiet cobblestoned street. The room with ensuite was perfect and had a study table which was great for me to get some work done. Got some great tips for dining in the area too. Thanks for the stay!
Beautiful home in South Yarra walking distance to shops on Chapel Street and Toorak road, trams & train station less than 5 minutes walk. David and Neville were great, we spent a lovely evening chatting over wine with them. Room was very comfortable and ensuite was great. We really enjoyed our stay, it was our first air bnb experience and it exceeded our expectations!
A perfect home away from home.
Location: Splendid. A short walk will get you to tram stops, a train station, Chapel street, Prahran Market, lots of cafes/restaurants with great food, a 24hr Italian restaurant (great for people who like late-night suppers), 2 sizable supermarkets and fashion boutiques.
Hosts: Wonderful. David and Neville were intelligent, sensitive, accommodating, warm and friendly hosts. Such a happy and relaxed couple.
The room: Excellent. Clean and comfortable. The attached bathroom is extremely convenient, the bed was warm and soft and an air conditioner is provided for warmer days. Plus, ample storage space in the form of a built-in wardrobe, a shelf, a desk and drawers with a lock and key for valuables. Everything was very well thought out.
Thanks for having us :)
Thanks Robyn, enjoy yourself back in Singapore.
"Beautiful place by beautiful people."
The lovely couple and
I has been in touch prior my arrival to arrange a time for day 1.
David answered to all my text immediately.
They welcomed me so well that I felt embarrased to have come in in rush and ran out within 15mn on my first day as I had to meet my friends as my plane was late.
I almost came home late every night, so they left the lights on from the entrance to my room.
The room was amazing! Tv, aircon, ensuite bathroom, massive wardrobe, books, decorations, sanitary products... And of course an amazing big bed! Slept so well!
I highly recommend this place. Perfect location from chapel St and all the others areas! 15mn tramway to the cbd. Best ride ever! Loved it.
I wished I could book it longer!
Thank you Guys! You rock!
Wow, thanks for the great review Nic! We hope you enjoy living in Melbourne. Stay in touch.
This is a great place to stay in South Yarra! Cozy and warm, all the amenities you need, and so close to the train station, Chapel St and Prahran Market.
Can't recommend highly enough!
The most livable suburb in the most livable city with great hosts.
The room and unit were exactly as described and very comfortable.
Just what I required for my stay. David and Neville were very helpful and friendly. I'd recommend staying here.
Very comfortable and welcoming, with a privacy of an en-suite room. Great area - very close to the main street in South Yarra, but not so close that you can hear it.
I had an amazing time staying with David and Neville. It does feel a lot like staying in an actual bed and breakfast. The room was extremely cozy and having my own bathroom was nice. The boys were very welcoming, easy-going and accommodating. They made sure I felt comfortable and right at home. The location was great with many bars, cafes and shops. There's access to so many trains and trams. I'd definitely stay with them again next time I am in Melbourne.
Enjoyed my stay here. It's a great location, very conveniently located to everything you may need. Got along well with David and Neville - they are easy going and friendly but leave you alone when you want to be left alone.
In general, staying with David and his partner was a lovely experience for my friend and I. The place was very welcoming, and very conveniently located off of Chapel St. in South Yarra which was a prime location to explore shopping and the nightlife of Windsor and Prahan. The room was fine, with an air conditioning unit. The private bathroom was especially nice, great water pressure in the shower. We rarely crossed paths with David and his partner, so if you are looking for a more private/quiet experience, this is definitely for you.
Busy times in our house while David stayed with us. He was clean, tidy and very quiet! Thanks David and sorry I missed you on your short visit to Adelaide.
Dave and his partner are great guest's may be because they are great host's as well so they know it from both sides.
Fun loving and a pleasure to be with one could not ask for more in a guest
Highly recommended as guest's and looking forward to seeing them again
David was organised, pleasant, clean and tidy. He is welcome back any time.
David has lived in South Yarra with his partner Neville for 20 years. They both love good food and wine, so can recommend the best restaurants in the area. They love their cabaret and music, so their CD collection is something to see! David is conscientious and polite, and has always been a great host when I've visited their home.
David is an organised, reliable and conscientious person who always considers the needs of others, and the impact his behaviour will have on others - as a result, he is warm, friendly and supportive. His knowledge and involvement in the Melbourne arts scene uniquely positions him as a host in this city, while his outstanding personal and social skills would make him an easy and amiable guest in anyone's home.
