About the Area
Port Melbourne is very central to all amenities including the beach, parks, freeways and airport. This area is unique as we are on the beach but close to the city- best of both worlds! Our suburb is very safe and people who live here do not want to leave.
It is only a 15 minute stroll along the beach boardwalk to Port Melbourne village where we have a very lively cafe and restaurant culture together with trendy boutiques and specialist shops. We are close to buses and the tram which can take you direct to the city - Melbourne CBD is about 4km away.
Port Melbourne definitely has an urban beach vibe.

Must love dogs - we have 2 beautiful kelpie cross border collies who are very well behaved.
We love a relaxed lifestyle and will do everything we can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. A few standard rules are: no extra guests, ensure the house is locked, general cleanliness and tidiness expected
Smoking is allowed outdoors only.
I had an excellent stay at Barbara and steve's. They are attentive and generous. Their house facing the sea is very beautiful the room it offers is just as comfortable and spacious as the bathroom. The house is very well located in a beautiful area directly connected to the city centre with the bus in thirty minutes. You will not be disappointed.
How do I book?
Contact the host to check their availability and ask them any questions you have about staying with them. Once the host confirms they’re available for your dates, you can complete your booking.
When do I pay?
Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival.
