    Nicola was very freindy and welcoming. The house was suitable for my needs. Nicola was very generous offering to let me use her art supplies to do a painting. I would recommend others consider staying here.

    Braybrook is a suburb west of Melbourne, but it takes only 35 mins by bus to CBD. My room was spacious and clean with a big wardrobe, desk with loads of broschures and maps, Foxtel TV and a comfy bed. Prior to my arrival Nicola asked me for my breakfast wishes and I found more than I could have expected in my own little fridge. I was allowed to use her PC anytime and we spent one afternoon in her amazing garden atelier where we did some art work.

    Nicola was very welcoming from the very beginning and the perfect host. We had great conversations and a fun movie night. She was more than helpful and offered me a lift to the supermarket and airport as I didn't have a car. I highly recommend staying with Nicola and Lucy!

    Thank you so much for the fantastic time. It was a great pleasure staying with you.
    Kisses and meow to little Harry xx

    Nicola is very kind and warm and helpful person. She even helps me after staying her house. She lent me a large comfortable room. There is also a beautiful garden and it was nice to stay outside for meals. In addition she replays to my massages 100%, then I had no worries before and after staying.
