Two bedrooms are available in my lovely townhouse in the lovely suburb of Ormond in Melbourne, Australia. I have been hosting international guests since 2014. I enjoy meeting new people and would love to help you to settle in your life in Melbourne, or to provide a temporary accommodation for your visit. You can have a very comfortable queen size bed or single bed in separate bedrooms.

The bedrooms is very light and spacious. All bedding and towels are provided. There is heating in winter and cooling in summer throughout the house.

There is a bathroom/laundry available exclusively to homestay guests, I have a separate bathroom. You will be able to use the kitchen (fridge, cooktop, toaster and dishwasher), bathroom and dining area with TV. Car parking off the street in the driveway is available if required. Internet is available. Anything else you might need - just ask!

By agreement I can pick you up from the train station if you arrive after 6 pm.
The self-serve breakfast includes cereal, juice, milk and toast with jam/spread, tea and coffee. Dinner can be included in the package for an additional fee.

I am working in the publishing and finance area for many years, but now retrained as Bowen therapist, and run a part-time clinic from my home. So if you have a sore back from sitting in the plane for hours or want to start your holiday de-stressed I can certainly help! :)

In my spare time I am a traveller, a keen dancer, a gardener and just a social person who likes meeting people and sharing a good time. I speak English and Russian.

I am happy to help with advice and to chat at dinner times but busy during the day. I am a quiet person and will respect your privacy.
