Great place to stay. Joy and Owen very hospitable and accommodating. Bedroom and facilities very clean. Excellent.
I stayed with Joy and Owen for 4 nights. It was my first homestay and I really enjoyed it as they made it very easy to settle in. The room and the bathroom were clean and everything was well organised. I had some great chats with both of seem and they gave me good tips on where to go and how to get around. I did not have dinner but I am sure it is nice too. If you are looking for place that feels like home, in a nice (suburb) neighbourhood plus the chance to have some good conversations that is the place to stay.

The House was amazing, the food and the poeole. They were very welcoming and friendly . I recommend this House to other people who are looking for home away from home.
Thanks guys for the hospitality
Can't rate this stay highly enough! Joy and her partner were very accomodating at late notice and I had a very comfortable stay. The house is spacious and in a good location.
I wasnt able to join them for dinner (and the famous Irish coffee!) but really enjoyed having a chat over breakfast.
All round great, friendly hosts and a great stay. Will be my first option next time I visit Melbourne!
Very nice and funny guys and easy to get to their house with the train. It's a very quiet location, shops are near by in walking distance. The room was really big and clean. Had a lovely stay there, also if you need anything like tips where to go or if you have any questions about what you can do around there, they are always happy to help you.
This was my first time with Homestay I was a little worried on how my stay would go but Joy and the crew made me feel at home as soon as I walked through the door.I enjoyed the Paris room everything you need to know about the capital and more.I wish I could have stayed longer but my flight to NZ was already booked.
I picked this (my first) homestay in a rush, my initial interest was the look of the lovely old home. From the moment Joy opened the front door, my one night in Melbourne was filled with wonderful hospitality, great Irish coffee (thanks Owen) and I met some delightful international students. I can't believe how relaxed I was staying with people I had never met before, but that is testament to Joy and Owen making you feel right at home.
If I need to revisit Melbourne again on short notice this will be my goto choice, as it will be like going home. Thank you.
It was my first time in Melbourne and I'm definitely coming back for another holiday because of this lovely home stay experience. My room was tidy and clean. Joy was hospitable and she made me feel at home right away. I enjoyed the dinners prepared by Owen as well. That was why I came back for dinner every night when I was here. It has been such a long time since I played UNO cards. How refreshing! Thanks, once again! And see you next time, Joy and Owen!
We just had one night with Joy and Owen. They are extremely nice people and have a great home. We would definitely stay there again!
