    I had a great time at Emily's house. I spent only 4 nights there, but Emily and her family had been very helpful. They gave me lifts to the nearest station, too. They've made my trip to Melbourne fantastic and unforgettable!!

    The Rosner family made me feel like I was part of the family, always taking me with them on their family adventures. They are a wonderful family that knows how to relax one day and be on the go the next. I highly recommend staying with the Rosner family!
