Mike and Mark were consummate hosts during my weekend stay in Melbourne -- providing fitting suggestions for restaurants and spots of interest. They were always open to answering any questions I had, or leaving me to my own devices if I so preferred. The apartment, apart from being very well-situated within walking distance to the heart of the city, is exactly as described and shown in the photos (clean, comfortable, trendy). I was offered tea and coffee upon arrival, and taken to the rooftop to soak in the panoramic views and to orient myself. The included breakfast spread each morning was very comprehensive -- the perfect way to start each day in a beautiful apartment in an exciting city!

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.

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.
