Where to start?! Well, we have been living in Melbourne together for nearly 4 years. I (Sophie) am born and bred Australian and Freddy is Swedish. We also share our 3 bedroom home with my brother, Lachlan and dog, Bobbi.
Freddy and I have always loved to travel and upon our return from a recent trip across the US and Europe in which we rode the AirBnb bandwagon we thought why not list our spare room!
If you are new to AirBnb you are in for a treat! We absolutely loved being able to get an authentic local experience in every place we visited and were overwhelmed by the hospitality and experience our hosts provided. We hope we will be as good as they were!
I work Mon-Fri 9am - 5pm as does Locky, but Freddy's hours are more varied. I work in Marketing & PR, Freddy is a barista and spends his spare time managing a band which he is very passionate about. Locky works in construction management. And Bobbi works in the art of sleeping and eating.
We have a very relaxed and open home and really enjoy spinning a few yarns with new people and hearing tales from the road.
Our house is conveniently located just a couple of mins walk to tram stops and a train station (Hawksburn). The train into the city takes only 8 mins.
We are also walking distance from Chapel Street which is known for its great shopping and night life. There are loads of bars, cafes and restaurants along the 2.5 km strip.
If you are into sport, we are a 5 min train trip to Melbourne Park/Rod Laver Arena/MCG where the annual Australian Open takes place as well as many an Aussie Rules footy game in the winter time.
We hope to meet you soon and safe travels!
Sophie, Freddy, Lachlan & Bobbi
