Redfern is a fantastic central place to stay and Mel's place is lovely - and she is a very welcoming host. The room is spacious and clean, the only suggestion I would have is to bring an eye mask if you struggle to sleep in bright environments - as there is only a translucent curtain over the window and it gets bright in the room from when the sun comes up
Mel User ProfileMel is a superhost.
Response from Mel:
Thanks for the feedback Frances, I actually leave an eye mask in the room and guests seem to enjoy using it so much they take it with them, so I am constantly replacing it. I was unaware there wasn't an eye mask in the room when you stayed, my apologies for any inconvenience, and thanks for the tip for future guests!

Mel's place was gorgeous, clean, bright and comfortable! Close, walking distance to the city with lots of restaurants and coffee spots nearby. Super quick UberEats delivery too. Wifi is fast, bed is comfortable and everything you need is provided. Mel is a great, warm host - she was incredibly helpful and hospitable and her gorgeous dog Harry gave me snuggles on the couch in front of the fire. Shower is awesome after a long day! I will definitely be back, thanks Mel :)

I work for myself as a commercial photographer and director of photography and I love it!
I have an office at home so sometimes i'm at home during the day working whilst other times I'm out working on location or at my studio.
Harry (my dog) and I go walking every morning. She will greet you very enthusiastically when you arrive at the house and be ready for a scratch on her tummy from you to say hello.
It's great to meet new people from all over the world and have a chat over a coffee or a wine and share my local knowledge with you, and hear about your travelling experiences, but I also respect your privacy, and my work keeps me pretty busy too!
I love being an Air BnB host and have made some great friends from the guests who have stayed with me from all over the world.
I look forward to meeting you.
