I had an amazing stay at Mark and Mike's apartment. The location was perfect for getting into the centre. The whole place was spotless. The breakfast choices were lovely. Everything was very well thought-out. I was a bit nervous travelling by myself but they made me feel very welcome and safe. Thank you for a great start to my trip.

Mark and Mike's place in Southbank is perfectly clean, quiet, beautiful, and centrally located. I enjoyed the 8 minute walk to the National Gallery of Victoria and another 5 minutes across the river to Federation Square. Mark and Mike went above and beyond to make my solo stay enjoyable, offering suggestions on things to do and places to eat as well as respecting my privacy. If I'm back in Melbourne, I wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again.

Thanks Mark & Mike for an outstanding stay in your beautiful home and your stunning city. Everything was perfect for us: wonderful communication, cleanliness and comfort. Outstanding breakfast and scrummy snacks. The fresh fruit was delicious. We enjoyed your charming cats. Your hospitality went over and above. We appreciated all the advise and recommendations for activities, places to visit, transport routes and restaurants. Your home is perfectly set up and organised for two visitors, we did not want for anything. It was lovely being able to freely use the living areas, kitchen and deck as well as our comfortable room. Thank you so much.

Mark & Mike have an amazing apartment located a short walk from the city. They are very accommodating of guests and have extensive knowledge of the city which they are more than willing to share. They will arm you up with all the information you need to explore the amazing city. The modern apartment has great facilities including a rooftop with amazing views of Melbourne and the room itself is clean and private with its own bathroom. And a brekky spread in the morning, what's not to love!

Mark and Mike an Australian couple who married in New York, have lived in Melbourne since 1986. With both our families living overseas, travelling is just what you do. You'll often find us planning or thinking about where to stop off on the next trip and we try to have the next destination identified before finishing the current trip.

We both got the AIRBNB bug from our own hosted experiences in Prague, Paris and Amsterdam and started hosting over 10 years ago. Passionate about Melbourne it gives us a great buzz to be able to share our city and knowledge with visitors and hope that we can provide a great base for your Melbourne stay.

Mark has recently retired from teaching music in a college and Mike is a manager in the vocational education sector. Mark is originally from New Zealand and is where we both met in 1984 with Mike hailing originally from London in the UK.
