A writer's home, a self-contained garden bedroom, secluded and safe, over-looking the vegie patch. Stylish decor, Melbourne art and books, and a peaceful setting. Close to bus and tram. Sophisticated and relaxed.
Great for quiet sleeping. The guests arrive via the side gateway, along the path by the side of the main house to the garden. There is usually a spot in free parking in the street at the front of the house.

The space
The home of a local writer and her husband is a great place to relax for business travellers, or a great base from which to explore Melbourne’s secrets. The room has a lovely feel, and an easy sense of quiet and calm. At one end is a small kitchenette, with microwave and electric frypan for light cooking, a sink and small fridge—with an ice tray! A separate bathroom has a bath and shower, and a lovely sunny skylight. A garden seat offers a quiet sunny sit.

Guest access
This is a private self contained suite for guest use alone. The garden is shared space. Access is via the side gate. Just text me on arrival for first access . Please lock the accommodation during the days you stay, and on your departure, hand the key back or leave room unlocked, with key on table. Thank you.

Other things to note
The garden is a shared space. We ask that guests respect these shared spaces, and are responsible in regards to behaviour, litter and noise. We ask that you respect our neighbours and keep noise levels down. Quiet time after 10pm.

Location

Port Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

Proximity to everything is the bonus of this location.
Port Melbourne is a historic suburb, the oldest in Melbourne, in fact, as it was the place of the earliest settler arrivals in 1835. It’s made of heritage homes, workers’ cottages and colonial civic buildings. As a beachside harbour, it has a great beach, fascinating pier and wharf activities, with ships coming and going, and many beachside attractions. The CBD is only minutes away by taxi, bus or tram, so we’re close to all the action, without the noise and disturbances. From this location, you are basically 10 minutes from everything: The CBD, the beach, the Melbourne Exhibition Centre, Port Melbourne Shopping centre, City Luxury shopping, Crown Casino, National Gallery of Victoria (NGV), Melbourne Theatre Company (MTC) and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art (ACCA)… and even the Westgate Bridge, that will take you to the Great Ocean Road.
