Enjoy private accommodation in the Heart of Fitzroy, seconds from bustling Brunswick st.
The space is separate from the rest of the family home by 1 floor. It sports a private Onsen (Still Japanese Bath), Queen size futon bed and 5 star location.
The space is unique with a Japanese vibe similar to a serviced apartment, just lacking a fully functional kitchen and laundry but who wants to cook when less than a minute away is one of Melbourne's most popular eating and entertainment strips.
The space itself is very peaceful. The bedroom area is big and has a lovely queen size bed, your own toilet, change room, traditional style Japanese Bath (Ofuro), shower, DVD/TV playing facilities, bar fridge and the basics for an easy breakfast like a toaster, kettle, cups, plates and crockery. The only shared space is the entrance to the building. We live in the floors above the guests to which guests have no access.
Dan is also a shiatsu practitioner and with notice can be available for a shiatsu in the sitting room on a table. If interested just mention it for more details.
Fitzroy is full of life. Pretty much anything one wants to do is available here or close by. There are plenty of bars and restaurants seconds away from the house as well as places to dance, see live music or just 10-15 minutes on the tram you can go sight seeing in the CBD and other surrounding suburbs.
Trams are seconds to minutes away either on Brunswick street, Smith street or Nicholson street.
We are a Family of four. Nikki, Dan, Enelsa and Imogen . It's important to note that there might occasionally be kid noise in the distance through the concrete insulated ceiling or coming down the stairs. It's very seldom intrusive noise but kids are kids in the end.
It is also important to note that we do not have parking on site. There are car parks on the same street that do all day and all night deals which range in price but are below $12.
Guests have access to their bedroom, own toilet and Japanese style bathroom and shower, powder/change room, sitting area with hotel style breakfast bar and tv/dvd facilities.
Interaction with guests
We actually have found that we rarely even see the guests unless it is by accident at the front door or if a guest wants to chat or has questions. We are more than happy to chat with guests but find that most people that book with us want their own space.
Other things to note
This apartment is actually a converted garage with a big mezzanine level where the bedroom and bathroom is and a lower level that is now used as a sitting or dinning room.
We live above this space and are a family of 4. We expect people to respect our house as they would their own and keep in mind that 2 of the 4 people in the family are kids and kids do sometimes like to jump on their beds which are above the space. Nobody ever mentions or notices it though it seems but i feel.it worth mentioning.
Dishwashing fascilities are not available so we are happy to wash dishes for guests. We provide a bucket for the dishes to go in and then if guests need them washed they only need to leave them at the bottom of our stairs and we will get them done.
Also please refrain from going to bed with makeup tgat stains shedts or using non water soluble solutions in bed to avoid staining.

We are a family of four who live above the listed property. Dan works from the room as a Shiatsu Practitioner most of the time that it's not being used by Air BnB, Nikki is a primary school art teacher and the kids are happy and healthy. We are a pretty easy going family that want most of all for people to love their stay with us.
