About the Homestay
Cool little family with Mum, activewear fashion designer/business owner and little bub of 10 months. Two gorgeous little dogs who are super friendly and love going for walks on the beach or at the botanical gardens that are less than a minute from the house. We are 3 minutes walk from the centre of St Kilda which is a thriving part of Melbourne full of students and back packers who enjoy the bayside beach location. We are close to all amenities like trams, outdoor/indoor pools, gyms, tennis courts, cafes, library and anything a student would need.

About the Area
The tram is about 2 minutes from the house, we are in bayside suburb south of Melbourne. Approx 7 Kms from centre of city. We are close to everything and yet the street is super quiet and leafy with the beautiful botanical gardens at the end of the street and less than a minute's walk from the house. The house is perfectly located for a student who wants all the of the benefits of being central yet still have the peace and quiet to study, the green areas to relax or the beach for holiday like atmosphere.

I spent a month in her house and it was great. She is very nice and helpful ! It’s a great location if you want to stay in Melbourne. I recommend it :)
Helena is very kind and a great host. She helped me out figuring transport and places as it was my first time in Melbourne. The home is a lovely space with a beautiful backyard. Al and China (the doggies) are the best, they're always at the door welcoming you every time you enter and keep checking on you, now and then. Loved my time here.
Thank you very much!! :)
I spent 2 months at Helena’s place and can only recommend it! Had a wonderful time with this little family, thank you so much for everything. ❤️
Super cool and convenient location. Trams, buses and supermarkets 2 mins walk. Peaceful neighbourhood. Highly recommended.
