We had a great time in Melbourne during school term 1 holiday. The host is a good tour guider. He prepared the maps about the great ocean road, CBD and zoo for us. That makes us so convenient. We had good trip on those days.

We stayed for 3 weeks when we initially emigrated to Australia. KC & Serena were very welcoming and gave us a lot of advice that helped us find our way around and organise things. The room was large and comfortable and we could use the upstairs sitting room and their very adequate kitchen to do our cooking.

We stayed with KC and Serena when we first arrived in Melbourne having emigrated from the UK and they couldn't have been better hosts. They were extremely welcoming, knowledgable about the area and also gave us great advice about how to settle quickly and effectively in the city.

Despite being slightly outside of the CBD (about a 20 minute drive), the location is great with supermarkets, restaurants and beautiful coastal walks nearby. The rooms were perfect for what we required and the communal kitchen was fully equipped. The only improvement could have been the breakfast selection which was just cereal and toast but for the value for money it was fine.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has a car. Otherwise, it's probably too far out of the way to be viable.

Peaceful and quiet location which is only 25 minutes drive from the City, and 5 minutes drive to the nearest Town Centre, which offers a great variety of cuisines and supermarkets.

I went with 3 of my family members and we were given comfortable and spacious rooms to stay in. Room was heated to a pleasant temperature through the heating system. There was full access to the kitchen and cooking including usage of stove, microwave oven and heat oven. Utensils provided are more than sufficient for us who are heavy cookers.

Last but not least, the owner is helpful and friendly. He gave us travel advice around Melbourne too!

The place was clean and spacious. It is about a 30 minutes drive to the cbd area. KC and his family were very welcoming and accommodating. Their son, Darius, plays the piano well and it was a pleasure listening to him play. The only problem we had were millipedes and occasional insects. However, this was only because there is a garden in the backyard. Otherwise, a place worth going back to.

Glad that Germaine and her friends enjoyed their stay - it was a pleasure to have them around.
Those few tiny millipedes are harmless and very common in Australian houses. They do not bite or bother humans. They crawl in through the heating and ventilation air ducts, gaps in the doors, and so are present in all Australian homes. They are attracted by the warmth of the house and die off quickly as they have no food in the house.
The house is otherwise free from ants, flies and mosquitoes. We have some friendly bees in our back garden, busy pollinating the flowers !
