    It is very rare(at least with me) to find a comfortable place to stay in as a student. I find myself lucky to have been with Grace and family. From cooking, to driving to work together, to hanging out and sharing stuff, there has never been a sense of togetherness as strong as this one with someone who was a stranger to you before. Grace has been very generous throughout my stay and always made me feel part of the family. I have immense gratitude in my heart for whatever I have received from her. She makes a great host and there is no two ways about it. This has been my home away from home and I thank the entire family for having me as part of their lives.

    My family and I were truly blessed to have stayed with Grace.
    We came to Australia with no family and friends. But that is not the case anymore.

    For someone who is going to reallocate permanently to Australia, Grace was very helpful, informative and proactive in guiding us in every possible way.
    We felt that we were at home, although thousands of miles away from ours.

    I would definitely recommend anyone visiting Victoria to live with Grace and her wonderful family.

    Warm Regards,
    Shafaq & family from Dubai.

    Grace is a awesome women and her home is nice to stay in the Melbourne suburb.
    All the time it was a very warm welcome and she involved me in the daily routine.
    Grace supports me continuously and find solutions for my daily trips to Melbourne CBD. Usually it takes time to found out how it all works in Melbourne but with Grace at my side,
    I could combine business and vacation excellent without loosing time.
    I recommend this homestay with "five hearts" due reasons like hospitality, support & simplicity. For me Grace is doing more than a normal guest host.
    Thanks Grace, Maik & Uta (Germany)

    I've been extremely busy since my stay with Grace but I've made sure I could find time to write this review. I really wanted to leave a review because my stay with this beautiful family was fantastic.

    The house was extremely clean with accessible bathrooms and kitchen. The room was regularly cleaned during my stay and it was fantastic to have my own little clean space. The bed was extremely comfortable and I always had a good night's sleep.

    Grace and her family were extremely welcoming. I was often included in family meals and had many pleasant conversations. Her two children are both very fun and mature for their young ages. I was always made to feel at home, yet still had my own space when I needed privacy. I am by no means a cat person, but Grace has two of the most friendly cats I have ever come across, even they were a delight.

    Overall, I would definitely recommend staying here, no matter how long you are staying. Grace will do everything she possibly can to make your stay enjoyable! 10/10!
