I love living here where there are plenty of trees and the street is relatively quiet. Being close to the train station is very convenient. The house is old but it is interesting and comfortable with open spaces.
The house has 1 bedroom for guests and your room is large, spacious and light filled. There is plenty of cupboard space and the room has a double bed, so would suit couples or single. There is a trundle bed that can be pulled out for a second person. New bed linen and towels are provided.
Meals are not included, however I do offer a self-serve complimentary continental breakfast (cereal, toast, tea/coffee) for short stays. You are welcome to use the kitchen to prepare meals, as well as use the washing machine. There is a shared bathroom with shower over bath and two separate toilets.
I have a huge back garden and front verandah with lots of space for relaxing and enjoying the tranquil environment. Breakfast on the verandah in summer is a delight or an evening drink under the trees. Wireless broadband is provided, but not unlimited.
There is air conditioning in the lounge room and a fan in the bedroom.
I work part-time as well as working from home so I need my own space during the day most days. Therefore suits persons who are independent and busy and not at home too often during the day.
The house is located in a tree lined street and a quiet cul de sac, so there is no through traffic. It is a short walk to beautiful parks for exercise and recreation. I am just 10 mins walk to one stop shopping at Chadstone Shopping Centre and one train stop to Oakleigh Village where you will find everything you need and where there are some wonderful restaurants (not to mention Greek cake). There are also local shops and restaurants around the corner.
A very good location for public transport, just a 5 min. walk to Hughesdale railway station, in zone 1, and on the Pakenham and Cranbourne lines. It is a 20 minute trip to the CBD. The house is close to two bus hubs at Oakleigh and Chadstone S.C. It is only 3 train stops to Monash University, Caulfield campus and 3 stops in the other direction to Monash University, Clayton campus.
Street parking is available.

I am an artist and have traveled to several interesting places for postgraduate study. I have also traveled to Italy to study the Art and Architecture of the Italian Renaissance. I am looking forward to meeting travelers from other countries and introducing you to the things that make Australia special.
