Alex! What a great host to start our new life in Australia. He picked us up from the airport even after the flight had delayed for 3 hours. He was so welcoming. In the next day he delivered us to the bank and helped us to open
a bank account. He was always there when we needed him, he also was trying to help us finding a job in Australia by giving us some great tips and advices and sending us jobs advertisements. His house is super clean and we never felt strange living with him. When we finished ,He delivered us to our new host and refused to take any fee for that. I would recommend him 1000%.
It's a great stay at Alex's homestay and also with the housemates, Alex helped us for finding job and renting car during our traveling in Melbourne. Nice house and close to bus public transport that linked train commuter to the CBD.
Send our regards to Molly and Angela :)
Wish you all the best, Alex
This guest awarded the host 5 hearts but didn’t leave any comments.
Alex is a very kind guy.
Thank you for everything.
I had a really good time in this house.
I have made wonderful friends!
His family is also nice toward me.
It was my first time coming to Australia and also first time at a home stay.
Alex taught me English.
He spoke slowly so I could understand better.
I could improve my English.
Even when I was in trouble, he tried to solve the problem.
He always cared me and other people!
I cooked with them, we had dinner, had parties there with them…
It was a memorable and irreplaceable experience to spend time with them.
I would like to stay there again someday!!
Thank you Alex for hosting me, and even more, for becoming my friend. All your advices about local lifestyle, habites and job hunting were more than useful.
I will never forget your adorable family, and sincerely hope to stay in touch with you guys.
Alex is relaible person, who are always looking for best solutions to you. I recommend him with 200% .
My stay was in a clean and safe place where I met people all around the world. The best souvenirs ever!!!
Nice house, public transport is good but you must early in the evening leave Melbourne city. At 11 pm is the last possibility get at home.
Alex is great. He helped me much to settle in Melbourne and we've got good friends. I cannot review about the room because I never went to that room, we agreed before my arrival to stay in another room of him which was anyway so much nice and convenient. I'm sure that Alex is a kind of person cares to any problem you may have and try his best to keep you happy with the accommodation.
It's hard to find words to describe how wonderful Alex made my stay in Melbourne. It was my first Homestay experience & I couldn't have picked a better place! My trip to Melbourne was my first time travelling alone so I was quite anxious about the whole thing, but he made me feel welcome all the time! Alex has got a wonderful house, my room was perfect! I really enjoyed cooking with him, watching movies or spending time with him and his lovely family. I really felt like being a part of it!
Thank you for everything, Alex.
I'll see you soon :)
Thank you again SOOOO much for having me, Alex :-)
Thank you for picking me up from the Airport for Free. Thank you for welcoming me to Australia for my first time with an Aussie BBQ an hour after I had landed in Melbourne. Thank you for making me a part of your family (to the point where you family & friends referred to me as your "Son" ;-) . I will never forget the Birthdays, Dinners, Coffee's, 3 Christmas Parties you took me along to & New Years Eve Party we celebrated even thou I was no longer at your house.
I will with no doubt stay at your house again if my travels take me back here. For anyone out there considering staying with Alex feel free to look me up and ask me any question, I can't recommend Alex as a Host HIGH enough. While with Alex he taught me English, Respect, Values, how to Iron my clothes, how to cook & be independent. Oh and yes this one is for you Alex, you taught me how to USE COMMON SENSE ;-)
Once again THANK YOU and please you are welcome to stay with me in Oman anytime :-)
Ps. My mum says I'm a changed man (for the better)
Excellent experience ! And certainly the best homestay I ever try so far ! It's so overwhelming ! I will definitely give Alex , the host 2 thumbs up for what he did ! Looking forward to revisit again soon ! He deserves a " 6 stars ++ " !
