    Kristine is a lovely friendly hostess who made me feel very welcome. Her home is lovely and quiet and is so convenient to public transport and shops. Her friendly little dog was great company also. Kristine made it very easy to feel 'at home'. I recommend Kristine's accommodation to anyone staying in Melbourne, especially if they are using the train to get around. I did have my car with me as my trip was work related, but you could easily get away without a car as everything you could need is handy and close by. Thanks Kristine
