The SpaceThis private bedroom is light and comfortable and easily accommodates two people. The house is located approximately 100m from the University of Melbourne, and 200m from the Royal Melbourne and Royal Women's hospitals. It is also a very short walk to the number 19, 55, and 59 trams into the city. Alternatively, it is a 15minutes walk into the city. There are also two beautiful parks located nearby.
The available room is located upstairs, and has a window that overlooks the leafy street below.
Guests are provided with towels, shampoo and conditioner, washing detergent, hair dryer and straightener, hot water bottles, and public transport cards (known as myki). In the available room, guests are also provided with a remote controlled fan, clothes rack and coat hangers, and a full length mirror.
Guests can also use the household washing machine and refrigerator if they wish. Communal tea and coffee are also provided. Guest AccessGuests will be provided with a key upon arrival. Interaction with GuestsInteraction with the five tenants will be minimal as the house is so large, and the tenants have independent and busy lifestyles. However, you might interact with some of the tenants with whom you will share the upstairs bathroom, and the kitchen.
We generally expect our guests to be independent, and to do their own thing during their stay. We do not expect guests to chat, wine, or dine with the tenants, but are welcome to do so, if they so choose. The NeighborhoodThe Parkville area features wide leafy streets, Victorian style houses, with cobbled lane ways. The area is very safe and quiet. Getting AroundOur house is located very close to the number 19, 55, and 59 trams, all of which go into the city. A map to these tram lines has been provided in your room.
The nearest taxi rank can be located at the front of the Royal Melbourne Hospital. Alternatively, a taxi can be hailed from either Royal Parade or Flemington Road. Other Things to NoteWireless internet is also available.
I do NOT have parking permits for guests. Although the there is parking near to my home it is strictly limited to 2hour periods between 7am and 9pm.
Guests can leave their bags at the house before and after check in/out times. I only ask that you let me know in advance if you wish to do this.
The room does not have heating – as the house is so large and is an older design, heating is ineffective. However, I have provided very warm bedding and hot water bottles, so guests will not be cold at night.
As mentioned, the room is located upstairs. If you have problems climbing stairs, I suggest finding a more appropriate property. :)
Please note, airbnb is not like a hotel - I proudly provide my guests with as many comforts as possible, and I sincerely hope they enjoy their stay. Hosts are not, however, expected to provide additional services and/or amenities than what they have advertised. If you have specific requirements, please either contact me in advance, or choose a more appropriate property to suit your needs. :)
