So we understand and will be led by you and always respect your privacy. But if you want a chat or need advice or assistance with anything we are available. The NeighborhoodSo folks, you should know, Newport is not a bustling hub of nightlife, shopping and entertainment. It is a middle class, safe area with lots of young families. It's a real experience of normal life in Melbourne. Newport is considered inner city. It has a regular train service to the city centre that takes 20 minutes to get you to Flinders St. Station. Newport Railway station is only a kilometre from our home or a 10 minute walk. There are a few really good cafes' restaurants and pubs near us. They may not be readily visible to a traveller so be sure to ask for recommendations from us or a local. Mason street where the train station is located, has a butcher, fruit and vegetable shop, pharmacy, bakery, cafe, IGA Supermarket, hairdressers, atm, and cafe's. So food is readily accessible close to home. There are great parks, walking trails and bike paths to explore. I highly recommend Newport Lakes (which is 5 minutes from our home), where you can feel like you are in the country and not suburbia. There is a great fitness centre near our house with a professional size pool and spa and sauna, plus a range of classes and gym equipment if you want to keep fit :-) We are smack bang in the middle between Williamstown and Yarraville. But with us you don't get the more expensive room rates you may find in those areas. But you are pretty close to these locations so definitely check them out… Williamstown beach and esplanade are lovely accessible locations to enjoy a swim or walk by the ocean. There is an amazing beach kiosk there called D'asporto,where they sell great coffee and the food is fantastic. Not your normal beach kiosk fare. Plus, many other dining choices. I also highly recommend taking a ferry from Williamstown to Southbank on a sunny day. Yarraville has a great Art Deco movie theatre encompassed in a great little pop up park, and they have all the latest movies and arthouse collections. If you are looking for food then Yarraville will not disappoint. It has every different type of cafe restaurant you could want and the area has a quaint village feel to it. Getting AroundTrain, bus, bike or car are all good modes of transport in the inner-west. Our street has free unlimited street parking if you are travelling by car. There is also a taxi rank located at the train station and bus interchange in Newport. Other Things to NoteIf you are travelling to us via train. Please let us know and we will endeavour to collect you from Newport Station. It is only a 10 min walk from there to our home but with luggage it can be inconvenient.

The SpaceThis is a small private room with a super comfortable bed, wardrobe, desk and chest of drawers, with wifi internet access. Perfect for the solo traveller, you could have a couple in this room if your were not spending a lot of time in there and just needed a comfy place to sleep... We are in a zone 1 suburb of Melbourne which means we are only 20 minutes away by train from the Melbourne CBD. It is a 10 minute walk to the Newport train station. Around the location of the train station you will find a myriad of cafes and shops and other useful business to ensure you have everything you need at your convenience. There is even a supermarket open until midnight walking distance from our home. A short five minute walk from our house is Newport Lakes Reserve; an old quarry turned into a park with a large lake and an abundance of wildlife, a beautiful place to walk or run or even watch the sunset. You can loose yourself in the serenity of the lake and wildlife and forget you are even in suburbia.. We are close to Williamstown beach which has a lovely alfresco cafe culture and a good swimming beach. We offer you a relaxed family environment and a warm welcome with respect for your privacy and needs.. There is a beautiful modern kitchen to prepare your food and a spare fridge for you to store your provisions in. Tea coffee and filtered water is available for your use during your stay. Guest AccessWhilst staying with us you will have access to: Fast wifi Washing machine - NB: clothes dryer NOT available. There is a big outdoor washing line and small indoor drying racks in your room. A separate refrigerator for your food and space in the pantry to store other food. Kitchen facilities for cooking simple meals. Please note that between 6 − 7 pm the kitchen will be pretty busy cooking the family meal, so where possible try to prepare food outside of this time. A separate living area to access if you want to escape from the family and read or watch tv etc Interaction with GuestsWe understand every guest is different. Some people like to have interaction and others a quiet place to base themselves to meet busy schedules. So we understand and will be led by you and always respect your privacy.

Mason street where the train station is located, has a butcher, fruit and vegetable shop, pharmacy, bakery, cafe, IGA Supermarket, hairdressers, atm, and cafe's. So food is readily accessible close to home. There are great parks, walking trails and bike paths to explore. I highly recommend Newport Lakes (which is 5 minutes from our home), where you can feel like you are in the country and not suburbia. There is a great fitness centre near our house with a professional size pool and spa and sauna, plus a range of classes and gym equipment if you want to keep fit :-) We are smack bang in the middle between Williamstown and Yarraville. But with us you don't get the more expensive room rates you may find in those areas.

If you are looking for food then Yarraville will not disappoint. It has every different type of cafe restaurant you could want and the area has a quaint village feel to it. Getting AroundYou could live well enough here without owning a car. The frequent buses meander through the streets connecting Newport train station with Yarraville via Altona North & Kingsville/Spotswood. That enables you to get to schools, strip shops, doctors, dentists & Altona Gate Shopping Centre for all your basic needs. For entertainment, etc., you can easily get to Yarraville for the Sun Cinema, cafes, and shops, etc; or visit Williamstown for a wide variety of eateries, cafes, pubs, market, etc. If you want to get to the beach, the train from Newport station to the beach is only a 5 minutes trip to Williamstown Beach station, or if you prefer pools then the Leisure Centre is on the bus route along Mason St. For cyclists, the bike path along the foreshore is a really nice ride - you have Williamstown & beyond to the east and Altona beach to the west. As Newport & Williamstown are on a sort of mini-peninsula, we don't get the through-traffic congestion that a lot of other suburbs get. Commuting via rail to the city beats driving any day. I get to read instead of getting frustrated in commuter traffic. If you have to get to the city by car then on a weekend the city is only 15 minutes away. All in all, to live so close to Melbourne CBD, Newport is a nice place to live!

The NeighborhoodNewport is a quiet suburb with only one through destination being Williamstown so not a great deal of traffic. Elphin St is a peaceful street with a mixture of early Melbourne architecture, often renovated, along with a mix of properties through the decades. There are parks and great walks nearby along with some awesome local restaurants and cafes. Newport Park and the Yarra river are pretty much at the end of the street and you can walk down to Williamstown along the Strand for shopping, meals and attractions. Getting AroundVery well situated for trains and buses with Newport station being at the end of the street. As this station is the junction for trains to Werribee and Williamstown there is always a ready supply of trains heading to those destinations as well as the city. Buses also leave from next to the station to many destinations including Altona Gate shopping centre. Access to the Westgate Freeway is 5 minutes down the road with alternate routes into the city also available. A nice way to get into the centre of Melbourne is via the Williamstown Ferry service which travels up the Yarra under the Westgate bridge and into Berth 1 at Southgate next to the Elizabeth St walk Bridge.

The SpaceThe upstairs guest room is large, includes a sofa and is beside one of the bathrooms which has a shower and a bath. Downstairs has a second bathroom. The newly purchased Queen size bed is very good quality and extremely comfortable. UNLIMITED WIFI is available throughout the house, and you can watch as many movies as you like on your laptop. The guest room has tea and coffee making facilities with various teas and real freshly ground coffee. There is a coffee plunger in your room or an espresso maker style coffee pot in the kitchen. Guest AccessYou will have access to all of my home and a sunny outdoor deck and garden. Interaction with GuestsI will welcome you and ensure you have what you need. I am out and about regularly and its likely you will have all the space and privacy you want. I love the new Airbnb community commitment all hosts and guests are now required to make-“I commit to treat everyone—regardless of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation or age—with respect, and without judgement or bias." The NeighborhoodMy home is in a quiet laneway with cafes, restaurants ( trip advisor lists 24 eateries in Newport) and shops a minute away. Looking at all the Airbnb hosts in my neighbourhood it appears I am the closest to the train station...a great bonus! There are three clusters of shops, cafes and restaurants less than a 5 minute walk , with excellent cafe 1 minute away. I walk the seashore each morning with my dog Yoshi. Spectacular city views a 7 minute walk away as well as extensive parkland. Williamstown(89 restaurants) is the next suburb and I can walk there in 20 minutes. Ferries go to and from St. Kilda and the City from Williamstown. The Substation -Centre for Art and Culture is 5 minutes walk from my home. My favourite cafes include The Pint of Milk and Mez Mez '2016-Melbourne has been named the world's most liveable city for the sixth year in a row.The city once again achieved a near perfect score on the Economist Intelligence Unit's liveability survey of 140 cities." Getting AroundPUBLIC TRANSPORT Access to very regular public transport -about every 9 minutes weekdays (15 minutes weekends) is excellent with the Newport train station a 4 minute walk and the bus stop one minute from my home. Express trains to the city take 18 minutes and the two train lines from Central Melbourne(Flinders Street) to Newport are the Werribee and Williamstown Line. Uber taxi service from my home usually takes about 5 minutes to arrive after ordering. Public Transport Victoria and PTV are the key computer search words for train and bus timetables.(I tried to provide the link but Airbnb does not allow website addresses in there listings.) MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT Most of my guests seem take the airport bus to the city then the train to my home in Newport. If you prefer you may take an Uber or Taxi service to or from the Melbourne International Airport . This will cost between $60 and $80 dollars depending on traffic and takes about 25 minutes (longer in peak hours 7.30am-9.00am and 3.00-6.00pm weekdays)Airport bus to city (drop off at Spencer Street Station) and then train to Newport will be about half that price.Taxi from Melbourne city to my home is about $35.00. Other Things to NoteI hope you will let me know if there is anything I can do to make your stay a great one.
