Donation vegetatian restaurant across the street is a quaint experience. Walk to Ras Dashen for amazing African delights, Amaysa for luscoius Lebanese or Nhu Lan bakery's famous Bahn mi (Vietnamese bread rolls). Not to be forgotten is Hong Kong BBQ for fast Chinese duck & roast meats, Pho Tam for traditional Vietnamese or 8-Bit Burger Bar. All this begins on your doorstep and is within 10 minutes walking.
Footscray Market, an 8 minute walk away, rivals Queen Victoria Market for quality fresh produce at market prices and is a must visit. On the station side of the market you will find Gurella Espresso for a local taste of Melbourne style coffee. For the brave, ask for their single origin coffee in a short black.
A 10 minute walk will take you to Footscray Park and the quiet Maribyrnong River. Across from the park is Victoria University's main campus where you will find the cosy Reading Room café.
Catch some peace & quiet at Footscray Library, a 2 minute walk away.
Night life in Footscray picks up in the last 1/2 of the week. Little Foot Bar is across the street and hums with the local crowd. A 3 minute walk will take you to Jammo Jazz bar with great prices for both drinks & African tapas with frequent live music performance. Highly recommended is Station Hotel for excellent steak dinners or The Reverend Hotel for traditional feels.
Footscray station is a transport hub and only an 8 minute walk away. Here you will find taxi ranks, train, bus and tram services to the CBD, Highpoint Shopping Centre and beyond.
Skybus to Southern Cross Station
Train to Footscray Train Station (Werribee, Sunbury or Watergarden train lines)
The dog is a 5kg miniature pinscher named Penny who will greet you with happy barks. She is well trained and does not destroy things but there are a couple considerations.
She will be excited to see you on your arrival and will be wagging her tail and making noise but will resume her calm state after 5 minutes or so.
She loves to cuddle with you on the sofa but will understand if you tell her no. Fortunately she does not shed hair or drool.
Please place food either in the fridge, on the bench top or in cupboards.
We use self closing gates to make sure her curiosity does not lead her into your room or bathroom. Also this means you can enter and exit the house freely as she cannot escape.
No additional guests without prior negotiation.
