Our 3 bedroom 1940's renovated home is light, open and full of charm. The large garden and nearby creek create an urban oasis only 20 minutes from the city by public transport (a short walk to train station and tram stop). Just minutes from CERES organic markets / farm and the restaurants and shops of High St. A safe and quiet neighbourhood. Room is perfect for solo traveller and hosts can help as much or as little as needed.
Our home is close to lively shopping strips, quiet creek walks and public transport.
The guest bedroom room is spacious, peaceful and light with floorboards, queen bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and large windows looking onto a native garden. You will have plenty of privacy as the room is down its own end of the house. You will have the bathroom / toilet to yourself aside from the short time we shower there - the rest of the time we use a second toilet and sink at the other end of the house. House is tidy and clean, pet free and non smoking.
Our large deck is the perfect place to relax in summer shade or catch some winter sun. Lovely outdoor settings to enjoy the garden. Native birds often perch on the large gum tree in the back garden.
Your hosts are keen on yoga and you are welcome to loan yoga mats etc and do your yoga practice on the deck of in your room (plenty of space).

Hosts Tania and Stephen are keen travellers and hikers. We are interested in healthy living and healthy food. We are passionate about building community and supporting environmental and social equity. We enjoy being around people who are also interested in these issues. Steve is learning the guitar (don't tell him I mentioned it :-)) and I love singing. We love Melbourne (it's full of diversity, art and entertainment) and have plenty of ideas for recommended destinations and activities.
