The Nest! Fitzroy off bustling Smith & Gertrude Sts is a big old dame of a terrace house offering a large spacious extremely comfortable room for short termers to have a home, in between exploring the very funky local area. A 2nd room is listed on airbnb.

Le logement

This place is totally fabulously located - see the reviews!

It is a comfortable bedroom space for two but there is an extra room with a double bed to accommodate up to 4 in total. This is a quirky old dame of a home with loads of typical Fitzroy charm. It will suit the those who appreciate a terrace house - heritage interiors experience. Organic soaps provided, some organic linen and bamboo towelling will suit the preferences of greenies. Some vintage, some Ikea, some fabulous local artists designs are combined to create a comfortable, tasteful and tidy abode.

The city, the MCG, the Australian Open, the gardens, the hospitals, the universities are all a 15 minute walk away at the closest points. There is local bike hire. There are 6 tram routes in the immediate vicinity. No 86 (Gertrude and Smith Sts) goes past three doors away. Nos 112 (Brunswick St), 96 (Nicholson St) 109 and 12, (Victoria St) are 5 minutes walk away. There's a few local buses very nearby too. There is only short term parking on the street - sadly no parking permit available.

The area is overflowing with fabulous variety of eateries. There are endless entertainment options in the immediate area and in easy walking distance. Tea, coffee, small carton of milk, some breakfast cereals and toast making facilities are available. If you want to do alot of cooking this is probably not the place for you unless you want to cook up a feast for everyone that everyone wants to have. It's ok to cook meals as long as you work around Jane and dont take over the kitchen. Communication about your needs is the key.

Self access instructions are provided.

Accès des voyageurs

Share large beautiful bathroom when other guests are staying but if no one else is staying it is all yours. Your room is at the top of the terrace - so no wheelchair access. Independent access is organised on confirmation of payment. Comprehensive easy to follow instructions provided.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

I am helpful, friendly and busy. I am a local 50+ Fitzroyal who works away from home 8am - 6pm. I go out alot in the evenings and have friends over for social times at home. I am happy to provide lots of local info and share a glass of bubbly or vino and discuss the life in general and Melbourne in particular but if u need a concierge you need to stay at a hotel.

While children are warmly welcomed it hasn't worked for other guests to have really little ones who might be teething or waking up late crying loudly in the middle of the night etc. These kids need a different kind of place to have their needs and rhythms met without having to consider other guests needs. The walls between bedrooms are solid brick but not that soundproof! Older children and young adults need to comply with house rules and supervising adults are responsible for making sure of that.

There are lots of separate spaces but please dont take over any and clean up after yourself immediately. If you need to do alot of cooking best to communicate about that and work out how to make that fit in with Jane and any others.

Autres remarques

Cupboard for dry foods and a shelf in the fridge are available. If you want to cook the occasional meal or potter in the kitchen please keep it ready for the next person to use at all times unless you've arranged to cook for everyone.

The main rule is value driven - you need to "fit in" as a respectful and trustworthy guest with me as your host and with Ingrid my house mate or any other guests who might be staying. In particular clean up after yourselves immediately and don’t take over the kitchen unless you've asked me if you can cook up a feast for everyone. That could be fun!

For some people these rules will be “no-brainers” - others have needed to have it spelt out:
Registered guests only, visitors by arrangement.
If you are the last one out make sure all the doors are locked
When you are at home either the front security door or the solid front door needs to be locked at all times.
Hang your keys at the front door when yr home at all times
Keep the front gate latched
Switch off aircon, heating, lighting when you dont need them.
Dont run any water while someone else is in the shower.
Dont wash your dishes under running water
No smoking on the property.
Guests are expected to be respectful, reliable and trustworthy with all other members of my home. Dont go into anyone elses room

It was the best decision to stay in jane's place! Me and John feel so at home, the room was comfortable and the location perfect for restaurants and public transportation! Also, John got sick and Jane made him a special soup! It was so nice!!

Perfect guests, warm, self sufficient, responsible, respectful, organised and unimposing. Very easy to have stay and a little nurture is a common response of mine to respectful guests. :)

Jane’s place is great! The room is a good size, with lots of storage and light, and the common spaces are comfy and cosy. The location is convenient, near great cafes and bars, and walking distance into the city should you want to save on transport or get home late at night when there’s no public transport. The only thing I would note is that the listing (particularly the House Rules section) gives you a good sense of her communication style and requirements, and if it raises any concerns for you then it might be best to stay elsewhere. Her requirements aren’t particularly unusual or difficult, however she does want things "just so", and her attitude and communication style when trying to resolve small issues may not be for everyone.

Thanks to this guest for giving me the opportunity clarify. I do want my guests to be housetrained and able to clean up after themselves especially in the shared kitchen. It just doesn't work to have to clean up after a guest has used the kitchen or to give guests leeway of 24hrs to clean up after themselves as this guest suggests in private feedback. The kitchen is used a lot so it is imperative that guests clean up so that people coming after them dont have to clean for them. This review gives me the opportunity to say to prospective guests that the rules are rules so that means they are not optional. Note that many guests have no problem with taking responsibility for themselves and assume that as their obligation as a respectful guest in a strangers home.

It was a good time, but the owner is not really nice!

This review doesn't make sense maybe because guest was not familiar with being an airbnb guest, and seemed to not understand the importance of fitting in. On arrival he parked in my parking space, in the end messed around returning keys. But he and his girlfriend are basically decent people who got the hang of being airbnb guests. Full access info provided for independent access and I have the kind of job when I can't drop the patient to repeat the access instructions.

Excellent host and location if sometimes a bit noisy at night and early in the morning due to bars and refuse collection of bottles from pubs. I would definitely stay here again though.

Jane such a wonderful host. I don't think i can find any better place to stay in Melbourne during the first 2 week we're here. Jane is so nice and considerate to accept 3 of us and we even extend our stay for another few days! Its a pleasure to stay in an environmental friendly - old victorian house (i always dream to have a house like this!). I learnt a lot too.. About recycling, composting, saving water, and many other things. I guess its the base thing we can learn about before we start our life here in Melbourne. Staying here with Jane is one of the best decision i made. And 1 more thing, the bed is wonderful. I slept like a baby. Will definitely stay here again if i got chance.

Very creative, very brave, very sensitive with an eye for the comforts of others, more than a dash of green in my enviro veins... I was inspired to create Live Like a Melburnian after travelling to europe and feeling very disappointed with the very generic accom we had in Paris. We could have been anywhere in the world, there was no sense of love for Paris in our place. In Rome behind the Colosseum I came across some great street art of a northern african in gladiator clobber with a bucket of paint and a roller and a big cheesy grin. Over his head it said "When in Rome..." When I returned to Melbourne I decided to create a place where visitors to Melbourne could experience the local design scene that Melbourne is famous for.... The Nest! St Kilda fulfils that creative dream and has been enjoyed by scores of people from all around the world. I hope you too enjoy it! See more at
