About this listing

We are in the heart of Fitzroy's vibrant city life, yet nestled in a lush and peaceful little forest area. Wake up to the sound of birds tweeting, stroll out onto your balcony and enjoy the morning air. Yet, you're a 2 mins stroll to Brunswick St!

The space

Downstairs, floor to ceiling windows in lounge & dining areas provides lots of light and a fantastic outlook onto our little forest garden, which is shared by other residents in our private city oasis.

Upstairs, the master bedroom (our room & not usually available for use by guests) and the 3rd bedroom also have floor to ceiling windows with doors leading onto a balcony looking out over the forest areas. Relax on our comfy sofa on balcony enjoying the afternoon sun. The 2nd bedroom has a floor to ceiling window & feature exposed brick wall. Whilst we have 2 spare bedrooms, we only rent 1 room at a time via Air BnB, to ensure you always have private use of the bathroom.

The little forest area is home to many birds, a resident cat and from time to time possums.

Guest access

All downstairs rooms - lounge, dining, kitchen, powder room, patio, balcony, private garden and communal gardens.

Interaction with guests

We work most days but we are around in the evenings and always on hand by mobile to help you with any questions you may have about the facilities in our home, or more generally about what to do, where to go & how to get there in & around Melbourne.

Getting around

We're 2 mins walk to 2 different tram routes that head into the city - take your pick! You might like to walk instead & that's a leisurely 20 mins stroll through beautiful Carlton Gardens. The nearest train line is Parliament which is 20 mins walk.

Other things to note

We have a pet rabbit, called Elvis. He's a friendly, fluffy lap eared rabbit. He spends his time either in his hutch in the garden or hopping around our lounge. If you're not a fan of rabbits let us know & we'll ensure he stays in his hutch in his garden during your stay.

I moved to Melbourne 4 years ago with a plan to stay for a 1 year adventure! Here I am still loving every moment of life in the world's most liveable city. I share our home in Fitzroy with my gorgeous Aussie man I met here a few years ago. We love nature, so the tranquility of our home in a little forest, right in the heart of Fitzroy, is heaven for us! We're a 2 mins stroll to Brunswick St, 10 mins to Smith St & Lygon St and 20 mins walk through beautiful Carlton Gardens to the top end of the city. For us, this is the best spot in the Melbourne!

Whether you're here for pleasure, business or visiting friends & family, we welcome you into our home for single night or longer. We both work much of the week but are usually home in the evenings and will be happy to chat to you about anything & everything. If you're visiting for pleasure we have a collection of guide books & tourist brochures always on hand & will be happy to recommend our favourite bars & restaurants.
