I live in an attractive leafy suburb with a quiet engineer (early 30s) and my 2 cats. This is a peaceful neighbourhood and is only 20 minutes (by train) away from the bright lights of the city.
I have one double bedroom upstairs for guests, and all the linen (including pillows) is fresh and new. The room has a double bed, bedside table & lamp, chest of drawers, bookshelf and wardrobe. A desk will be available if required. A bathroom (with shower and bath) is adjacent as is a separate toilet.

In warmer weather the lawn and courtyard are ideal for leisurely reading, relaxing and barbecuing, and...we have a hammock! We are only 8 minutes walk from the train and tram. The beach is an 8 min drive away.

Additional Info

Off street car park available, but only 7 min walk to train or tram.

    Our first Homestay experience was great. Jenny is a caring, friendly and generous host. We were sad to leave, especially my daughter who played with Miagi the cat every day. The location was ideal for our needs and close to all public transport. We will definitely use Homestay again.

    Where to start, Jenny and her home are a fantastic homestay for anyone looking for a place to stay in Melbourne. Jenny's location is easy to get to from southern cross station and is easy to access from Glen huntly station. There are two lines (Frankston- to get back to glen huntly and Flinders street- to get to the city). Jenny provided us with useful information and points of interest. Jenny is a brilliant advocate for homestay and allows her guest the freedom and some mothering they will need. 100% would recommend and hopefully return in the future. Will defo stay on touch.

    Loved having this delightful young couple to stay...and share my Empty Nest!! Hmmm...yes, find it hard not to 'mother' a bit, but protective over my guests, and visitors don't always wear enough sunscreen!! lol So sad to see them go after 8 days as part of my 'family'...but will keep track of them!

How do I book?

Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 250 $£€ for longer term bookings) using a choice of payment methods: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal (not available in certain countries). You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
