My charming Victorian cottage is right on the border between vibrant, multicultural Footscray and groovy, hipster Seddon and only 3 train stops away from the Melbourne CBD. Plenty of places to eat, drink, walk and relax are just around the corner.

Жилье

The room on offer is bright, comfortable, quiet, and private with a queen size bed, drawers and some wardrobe space (most of the wardrobe is used for storage). It's the second bedroom in a small Victorian weatherboard cottage. The rest of the house consists of a charming eat in kitchen, small but comfortable lounge room and large bathroom with corner bath. There's zoned ducted heating for cosy warmth in winter and pedestal fans to help with the occasional Melbourne heatwave.

The location has a real inner city feel to it, with a pub just across the road, the train station a few houses away and lots of cafes, restaurants and bars in close proximity. Despite this, the house is very quiet once the front door is closed, and I have never had any trouble sleeping.

Доступно гостям

Fresh linen, towels and soap will be provided as well as coffee, tea and basic breakfast items (toast, fruit, spreads and cereal).

The house is non-smoking inside but there is a sunny back yard and an undercover front verandah where you can smoke.

The kitchen is charming but fairly basic - there's no dishwasher, for example - but you are more than welcome to cook a meal or make a snack whenever you like, as long as you clean up afterwards. Cupboard and fridge space can be made available for storing foodstuffs. I do have lots of handy appliances, including a very good electric espresso machine which grinds the beans fresh for coffee and a juicer for healthier beverages. There is, of course, a washing machine and a clothes line (or clothes horse for wet weather drying).

There's a TV with cable in the lounge room and a pretty good collection of DVDs that guests are free to use. The bedroom has an iPod docking station for music.

Общение с гостями

I work full time and have a couple of regular evening activities, so I may not be around a lot. However I definitely know what it's like to arrive at inconvenient times in a strange city so I will do my best to help you to find your way here, welcome you and get you settled in. I'm not an in your face host by any means, but if I am around, I'm always up for a glass of wine or a cup of tea and a chat, or a wander around the neighbourhood. My dog is a lovely, gentle, older chap who loves a pat and will happily soak up as much interaction as you care to share but will also go off to sleep in his bed if ignored. He is a fence jumper though (despite his advancing years) and because he's escaped the yard a few times, he is locked inside the house when I am out. So please expect to be sharing the house with him. Your room, of course, can be your private, dog free space :)

As a host I understand that different travelers are looking for different things at different times. Sometimes you want a bolthole where you won't be bothered and you can sleep, shower, and grab a coffee before rushing out the door to go do or see the next exciting thing. Other times you want to take the time to get to know an area, chat with some locals and take it slow. And now and then you just need to have a day off and watch some TV or read a book. I like to provide a comfortable, quiet space that travelers can make their own and use as much or as little as they need.

I don't assume we all live exactly the same way - difference is what makes the world so interesting, after all. If you are at all unsure of what's expected or allowed, please don't hesitate to ask. I hope you will find that I’m pretty easy going.

The most important things is that while you are here, this is your space! Please feel free to use it – cook a meal, put on a CD, watch some TV, take a bath (unfortunately the spa function doesn't work, but it's still a nice big bathtub). I like people to feel comfortable and at home in my house.

There are also, however, a few expectations of you that I have, which are:

• No smoking in the house, including the bedroom
• No candles in the bedroom
• Please don’t feed the dog human food, even if he begs (and he will)
• Please avoid eating or drinking things in bed that could stain the bed linen (those sheets are expensive)
• Please tidy up after yourself
• Please be considerate of my need to access the bathroom between 7:30 and 8am on weekdays as I have to get to work
• Likewise, limiting loud noise after 11pm is also appreciated (this doesn't mean no noise, just not really loud noise)

Excellent location for getting around Melbourne with the train just minutes away. Quaint and trendy Seddon strip right there with cafes and restaurants, post office and vet, which was good when my puppy was sick. And a couple of pubs nearby. No problem with noise although it is on a busy road and trains are nearby.

What a wonderful place to stay! Venetia is lovely, so happy to help and was great company! We were sad to leave her house after our month long stay and would highly recommend her home for anyone to stay in. The house was so comfortable, it felt like our own home. Perfectly located for public transport, even more so Footscray is just as great for various types of food, and all of your basic needs. We will miss staying in this house!

Venetia has created her own local guide booklet which I found very helpful. She's friendly and her dog is very friendly too. Good location. Highly recommended.

I loved my stay at Venetia's house (stayed for a month)! The room was cosy, the bed had really nice sheets, and the house itself had a comfortable shabby chic feel, with lots of books, plants and Venetia's unique knick knacks all throughout the house. The location is unbeatable - about a 30 sec walk to the train station, and close to heaps of great restaurants!! (also close to the city). Venetia was a great host - she lets you have your own space most of the time, but is there if you have any questions or need any help. Was also generous enough to share her coffee - I often had a 'latte' in the mornings. Her dog (Digby) was lovely and friendly as well. All in all, I enjoyed my time at Venetia's and would highly recommend this place to anyone!!

I am a social worker from Melbourne, Australia who loves to travel. I'm laid back and easy going but also clean, quiet and responsible.

I do a lot of travelling on my own and enjoy becoming familiar with the 'feel' or soul of a place and meeting local people. I would rather spend time getting to know a small area than rush around trying to fit in all the sights. I did the backpacking thing in my early 20s. These days I take it slower and don't travel so light as usually I bring along a ton of photography gear, a lap top to process my photos, and sometimes my ukulele (which I am slowly learning to play).

As a host I understand that different travelers are looking for different things at different times. Sometimes you want a bolthole where you won't be bothered and you can sleep, shower, and grab a coffee before rushing out the door to go do or see the next exciting thing. Other times you want to take the time to get to know an area, chat with some locals and take it slow. And now and then you just need to have a day off and watch some TV or read a book. I like to provide a comfortable, quiet space that travelers can make their own and use as much or as little as they need.
