    Christine ist eine sehr erfahrene, entspannte Gastgeber in, die unseren Aufenthalt sehr angenehm gestaltet hat und unsere Probleme (Flugverspätung, öffentliche Verkehrsmittel) souverän gelöst hat
    Unser Zimmer mit eigenem Bad war sehr gemütlich, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt, können Christine wärmstens weiterempfehlen.

    Great house in an ideal location. The ensuite room is spacious, comfortable, and well furnished with much attention to detail. I felt completely at home and enjoyed total privacy. Christine's hospitality is second to none. This is the best homestay property I have stayed at. Highly recommend it. Will definitely stay there again if I ever need accommodation in nMelbourne.

    Stayed with Christine for 3 weeks, it's such a tidy and cozy place. The room looks much nicer in reality. It is an ensuite, I had my private bathroom, which is really convenient. I got my own key and even a key to my bedroom, no worries about privacy. Christine also offered a wide range of food for breakfast. Really enjoyed the stay!

    We stayed with Christine and her daughter in their lovely townhouse in Melbourne.
    Both were very friendly, welcoming and made our stay really worthwhile.
    The breakfast was extraordinary with a great variety (of e.g. cheese).
    Overall, the furnishing and configuration were upscale and enjoyable.

    The room, with its separate bathroom, was comfortable and we felt at home easily.
    The CBD was only 30 minutes and the museum ~20 minutes away with a direct Tram connection. The Tram stop is only a 3 minutes walk from the homestay.

    Without hesitation, we warmly recommend this lovely home in Melbourne.

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.
