We had a great time with Emily and her family. Although they had a lot to do for their own work, they looked after us greatly, gave us a lot of support and helpful information, and suggested often to spent time together and to share their meal. So, we learnt something about the colours of different football teams, of Australian animals, and much more; and they made us familiar with a movie which my daughter now likes much. The room they offered is nice, the house is very clean and homey, and we could find everything we needed. The suburb is a good place to stay with a family and it was perfect to go to La Trobe University.
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!
