Our home is at the back of a beautiful complex. It's green, quiet and private, yet only a couple of blocks off the 'good end' of Brunswick St. This is the best location in Fitzroy. Nestled between Brunswick and Nicholson and just 500m to the beautiful Carlton Gardens and Melbourne Museum.
This is a family home. We have been sharing our home for many years and love to see our guests enjoy Fitzroy as much as we do.
The private room is extra large with a queen sized bed. It is fully furnished with your own private bathroom. No fresh white modern design to be found here. The house is quirky in all its 80's glory but it has character and is homely.
The room is a set up as a place to completely unwind with a solid collection of books, an arm chair and a desk should you need to set up and work. Everything you need is provided including wi-fi, bathroom essentials, tea & coffee and good quality linen.
You are welcome to share the large fully equipped kitchen available if you wanted to cook however Fitzroy is full of restaurants and cafes so you may prefer to go out. (we love to recommend our favourite places) We have a great little courtyard to sit out and enjoy the sun or inside is a dining room and living room.
There is a shared pool in the complex which will be available to guests to use and is open usually from about November onwards.
Guests are most welcome to use the kitchen and living areas. There is also a parking permit if required and guests are welcome to use the pool over the Summer months.
Interaction with guests
Between work, study and family life we're very busy during the days and on weekends but always available for guests. We can be found most evenings with a glass of wine, or watching the latest series on Netflix.
We are always happy to recommend places to eat, drink and play. We have lived in Fitzroy for more than 10 years and love to share our local knowledge.
Other things to note
There is a toddler in the house but he is used to being around lots of people and is quite social... we have also been blessed with a great sleeper so makes minimal noise during the night but he is an early riser.
This is a quiet family home and would be suitable for guests looking for a more family friendly experience in Fitzroy. Please note we have a checkout time of 11:00am. If you would like to negotiate a later checkout time, please let us know prior to your stay so we can determine if an additional charge may need to be added to your booking. This would only be if it means we are unable to host another guest the day of your departure, due to not being able to access the room for cleaning etc. Thanks.

Rowan and I are married and we live a fairly quiet life with our 1 year old son Tom. Art and music would be our passion however we don't get out to as many event these days. We still love traveling, although our overseas trips have become family friendly local jaunts.
I am studying and and working part time whilst Rowan spends a lot of time working on his illustrations and computer designs. Tom is a typical toddler. He's upbeat, noisey and charming all at the same time. He is used to being around lots of different people.
We have lived in Fitzroy for more than 10 years so know the area inside out and can share a lot of local knowledge about our neighbourhood. As a host we are happy to share this knowledge and as a guest we would be grateful to hear it!
