I would highly recommend this gorgeous home. Absolutely brilliant location and the host Katherine is incredibly warm, and wonderful to deal with. The house has a great feel to it and the backyard is fantastic and well loved. I never really knew Northcote High St before but what a find! I just love it. If there's a new hipster trend emerging it will evolving from this area first. Very, very cool. Great cafes, bars, concept eating places and other quirky little shops. There seem to be lots of young families around. There are some great parks nearby. We loved All Nations Park and H Swain Reserve. The city is 20 mins by car and a bit longer on Public Transport I guess but there is both a tram stop and train station in less than a minutes walk away.
I found both beds very comfortable and I am really fussy. The linen is nice and all cotton(you would be surprised at how many people use poly-blends!!). The house is secure and we always felt safe here. We stayed here in total for more than 2 months and we will miss this home away from home.
