You'll have our recently renovated and private second floor bedroom and bathroom in our 1920's house right by the parks of leafy Camberwell! We're just 15 minutes from the CBD by train and even less to the best shopping and eating locations around!
The house itself is very large and open, with high ceilings, a large kitchen and is heated throughout. The house is quite old and very quirky (which is what we love about it!). The upstairs area, as we call it - your domain - is a really big and bright space that has views of the trees and park across the road. The bathroom has also been renovated and has a bath as well as a shower.
We've kitted out your space with a new bar fridge, a toaster, kettle and some snacks as well! There is plenty of space to store your luggage and clothes in the built-in wardrobes.
A new and very sexy Samsung smart-tv compliments the space and has complete access to Netflix, our surround sound dvd system and the wider internet of course.
There is a door to the stairway that you can keep closed when you feel like some privacy. We are just looking to meet new and interesting people from other places, but we understand the need for privacy and some quiet when it's asked for as well!
You will have complete access to the entire house, our home is your home while you stay with us.
The kitchen, laundry facilities, bathrooms and showers are all open and of course free of charge. That includes any food we have in the fridge, snacks in the cupboards and whatever else.
We wholeheartedly encourage our guests to join us for meals and cooking as they like, same with grocery shopping and anything of that nature.
Whilst there are some cooking facilities upstairs (toaster and kettle), we have no problems at all with our guests using our kitchen and eating at our kitchen table as well.
Общение с гостями
We are happy to interact with you as little or as much as you'd like. I love to cook and we'd be keen to share a meal and a movie or to play some PS3 or just talk on the couches.
Melbourne can be a huge city and if you are coming to study here, knowing which suburbs are the best and most suitable for you to live in can be really helpful! If that's what you're hear for (as often our guests are) then let us be your real estate guides to Melbourne!
As we drive and also are more than happy to take you along the Victorian coast for a day, or into the mountains for an afternoon - please let us know if that's what you'd like to organise. We are just as keen as you are to explore our city and country, so any suggestions you might have are more than welcome.
Alternatively, if you want to do things your own way, feel free to have some breakfast and head off and do your own thing instead. The biggest part of Aussie culture is being easy going and not fussed - and we plan to do just that!
Другие важные подробности
Our house is situated directly across the road and adjacent to the Camberwell 'green belt' which is a series of snaking parks that go along the river into the city. I have a bike which can be made available upon request, there are some really nice bike trails around our place if that is something you'd be interested in.
It should also be noted that I have a blue tongue lizard, her name is Montania. She is really friendly and I regularly take her with me to Primary Schools to play with some of the kids I work with. She isn't poisonous, nor does she bite or roam the house or anything like that! She mostly sleeps in her tank. In fact, it is entirely likely that she will be hibernating underground in her tank for the duration of your visit. If there is a big issue with her, I can keep her in my room but she really isn't anything to stress about.
Obviously, common sense and basic politeness are required if you want to stay with us. If you've got some dirty dishes and we have a dishwasher, just load it up. If you've accidentally damaged something, just let us know. We don't have an issue with smoking outside or on the balcony, but not inside. Apart from that, just be open and ask any questions or concerns that you might have and I'm sure we'd be happy to do whatever we can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
