À propos de ce logement
Our home is in leafy, beachside Elwood. We love its bright and airy feel, it's comfortable and contemporary furnishings and period features, two tranquil garden courtyards, and the short walk to beaches. St Kilda's Acland St, cafes, bars, restaurants, shops, and public transport to CBD are also short walks away.
This property is our home. It's comfortable, peaceful, cosy and modest with wonderful natural light. The two shaded courtyards capture morning and after afternoon sun and there is a real sense of the outdoors being part of the living space. Our spacious bedrooms have two luxurious king beds and table fans for hot nights. The living room may be cooled by a large effective fan or an air conditioner. Our kitchen has plenty of bench space with handy seating for three. Our home is all on ground level. The off street parking is really handy and the front of the house can be secured with our latch gate. Our location could not be better!

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We like to meet and greet our guests and that way we can answer all your questions, show you the ropes and provide you with important information to make your stay a good one. Our guide book of some of our favorite cafes, good coffee joints, bakeries, restaurants etc appears in our listing. We are a phone call away if you need us.
We offer a DISCOUNT for stays over 10 days. Please discuss with us. You might have noticed that for the most part we have our home listed for long weekends, ending with check out on Mondays, however from time to time on the calendar there may be a month in which longer stays are possible. For our long weekend stays we may be flexible on check out times on the Monday within reason but unfortunately will not be able to extend days.
As you won't have access to our washing machine, you'll be pleased to hear there is a full service laundry about 4 doors up from our place and we have a clothes line down the side of the house for any hand washing you may want to do.
This is our home so please have respect for our space and leave it as you found it.

We have very old pine floorboards that mark easily, please DO NOT wear STILETTO heels in the house.
Happy for you to read any book from our library and please do not take any home with you.
We are strong supporters of sustainable living and ask that you turn lights, fans, TV, Air-conditioning, heating and exhaust fans off when not required and when leaving the house at any time. This is also a safety issue.
Make sure the gas stove and oven are turned off when unattended.

Both of us love to travel and in particular we love being in the great outdoors, camping, kayaking and hiking. We are both educators with a particular interest in environmental history and politics. Robert is also a writer and researcher and presently I work in my local community providing outreach programs on sustainability to school and community organization. Both Robert and I love to meet people, share good food and good conversation. Five things we cannot do without are: physical exercise, books, friends, family, and wild nature.
