Welcome to Little George, a light-filled 3-level home in vibrant Fitzroy filled with comfy furnishings and vintage touches. This is an award winning Kerstin Thompson architecture house and has been my home for 18 years. I love living here - I hope you'll enjoy visiting, it's nice to have you!

The space
Hi there,

This listing is for the top floor of my large 3 story home just off the wonderful Gertrude Street, comprising double bedroom, private bathroom, wee study, mini kitchenette & balcony.

This is an excellent spot for guests in Melbourne for a short time who want that 'local feeling'. Or for those lucky folk who are moving to Melbourne (nice choice!) it's a great landing pad while you look for something permanent.

Located in between famous Brunswick and Smith Streets, this is a fantastic, diverse area full* of great cafes, restaurants, wonderful local pubs, art galleries, parks, live music venues, diverse architecture and the Melbourne Museum. The beloved #86 tram (our 'tramily') and #12 are just at the end of the road giving easy access to other parts of this wonderfully liveable city. *Obviously with Covid-19 things are not quite what they were but many of our wonderful hospitality spots are open and ready for you!

The house has all the mod cons mixed in with vintage collectables. And rare in Melbourne in that it is very light and bright, especially on Level 3.

As well as your own mini kitchenette setup on Level 3, you are welcome to use the dining room, lounge, kitchen and balconies on Level 2. Plenty of oils & spices in the kitchen and fresh herbs on the balcony to get you started and plenty of cupboard & fridge space.

Breakfast - your kitchenette is set up with fairtrade teas, fresh coffee, organic breads & spreads, soy milk & nuttlex (I don't buy animal products but if you need them there is a food store at the end of the laneway and a supermarket 3 minutes walk away on Smith St).

FROM THE AIRPORT - I recommend "StarBus Airport Shuttle" which brings you right into Fitzroy. Cut and paste StarBus Airport Shuttle into your search engine for more info. Or a taxi for approx $65 is the fastest.

Fitzroy is a wonderful, diverse, energetic area. Needless to say, I love it here, I'm sure you will too!

Cheers, Ramona.
Smoking: no thanks
Children: not suited sorry, too many stairs and hard surfaces! But if you have a 3rd guest over 12 I have a lovely spare bedroom on Level 1 which is $75 per night.

Guest access
Level 1 - front door access, laundry, my rooms
Level 2 - shared dining room, lounge, kitchen & 2 large furnished balconies
Level 3 - your own bedroom, bathroom, wee balcony & study/kitchenette

Other things to note
It's a good idea to check Melbourne's weather report before you arrive, we really can have "all seasons in 1 day" so it's wise to bring something warm even for those summer nights. I recommend the app 'Weatherzone'.
If it looks like it's going to rain please help yourself to the umbrellas at the bottom of the stairs. Try not to lose it, but umbrellas come and umbrellas go so don't worry too much!

Location

Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia

One of Melbourne's smallest urban areas, Fitzroy, is a real treasure of old and new, working class and gentrification, historic preservation and modern architecture. Right next to the city with both the Fitzroy and Carlton gardens in between, it's never boring but very chilled. If on the odd occasion it's noisy there are ear plugs in your bedside tables.
Diversity, cafes, boutiques, galleries, pubs, parks, restaurants, cocktail bars, music, street art = good vibes.

Hi there. I'm originally from New Zealand but moved to Melbourne 21 years ago. Like most people who arrive in this wonderful city we think we are going to move on, but as soon as we get here ... well, there are reasons no-one ever wants to leave! I was lucky enough to find this great house in the best part of Fitzroy so here I still am. I have a habit of collecting things hence all the vintage love around the house. Over the last decade+ I've shared my home with hundreds people from all around the world. Things I can't live without? Friends, freedom, Fitzroy... If you think my home sounds like your kind of pad I'd love to hear from you and know what brings you to Melbourne.
