The SpaceMy place is great for guest from overseas, interstate or want to live in northern suburbs. If you like live in CBD, this one is not for you, if you are looking for someplace between airport and city, have free places to park your car, and like a spacious and quite place for some privacy, or not in rush and happy to travel 30 minutes on the train to city(like us local people do) , it is the perfect place for you.
The photos were done 2 years ago, ever since, we have upgraded lighting to LED ceiling lights with deeming lighting in the bedrooms, we have bought new furnitures to make the house more morden. However, no changes to the structure of the house, I will upload some new photos of furniture soon. The guest bedrooms in a two bedroom unit with 100sqm backyard(my green garden) is what you pick. This bedroom is airy and bright with big windows. Your room has a queen bed and a build in wardrobe, good memory foam mattress, bedding will be nice and clean, and room is often decorated with fresh roses. Bathroom and kitchen are kept in 70's style with colourful tiles . All my neighbors are very friendly and lovely, You will be woken up by the birds every morning.
fast and unlimited wireless internet,fully equipped kitchen, washing machine, no dryer(they get dried very quickly on the lines in the backyard).
It is close to Melb Airport as well as City CBD. From Melbourne main airport is 15 -20 mins drive, by taxi is about $35-$40 ( work out cheaper and quicker than catching the sky bus from airport to city if 2 people). from my place to city 13Kms which is about $30 by taxi depends on where you go of course. You can catch bus or train to city (30 mins train trip), 10 mins lovely walk to the Keon Park station. Just to mention, your room also has its own TV on the wall with local channels.
Local shops 5-10 mins walking distance are Chinese Restaurant, a cafe, Fresh vegetable and fruit shop, milk bar, and if you need big supermarket, that is 3kms away, can reach by train(2 stops), 2 big shopping mall is 10 mins drive away or couple of train or bus stops away. Also the nearby suburb Preston has a big food market during Wed to Sat, and plenty of restaurants open till late every night and offers $10 meals! it is 4 stops on the same South Morang train line to city direction, so you could have dinner there on the way back from City if don't want to cook. If you love cooking, you have access to all the kitchen equipment, feel free to cook as much as you want.
It is close to Preston weekend markets, RMIT & La Trobe Uni Bundoora campus but not walking distance.
