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.
