Stayed for 3 nights at the 94 Highett B&B. First time in Melbourne and not familiar with the transport systems and way around. Jeff and Julie were very friendly, hospitable and they gave us plenty of advise on the places we want to go, the trams to take and etc. Jeff even loaned us the Myki cards which we could easily top up at the 7-11 at Bridge Road to take us to CBD which is about 10 minutes by tram. The property is clean and beautiful so comfortable for the 7 of us with a small park opposite where my children enjoyed playing after a day's sightseeing while grandpa and grandma took their evening stroll. There is a Coles nearby where we get all our grocery needs. There are many shops/Restaurants at Bridge Road but unfortunately we do not have time to shop there.
The best part of the stay is the daily cooked breakfast prepared by Jeff for all of us every morning. Bacon, eggs, mushrooms,tomatoes, orange juice, homemade bread, cappucino and cereals. Yummy breakfast ! my kids remembered it as one of their highlights of their stay in Melbourne i.e the breakfast prepared by Uncle Jeff.
Jeff went all the way to make our stay a comfortable one. He even drove us to the car rental in Palmer Street to collect our rented car on the last day of our stay in Melbourne before we continue our journey to the Great Ocean Road. We were so touched by his kindness and hospitality.
Would highly recommend 94 Highett Street to anyone who needs accommodation near Melbourne CBD especially for families where it would be so much more comfortable to stay together under one roof.

“Close to everything, perfect!”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Stayed here the week of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with girl friends. We had the bottom part of the house which sleeps 4. I felt like I was at home. Jeff was a great cook as well being very helpful. Nothing seemed to much trouble. Even got the transport card to put some credit on so we could get around for the week we were there. It is so close to everything, Richmond shopping, Chapel Street, Melbourne CBD and all little inner city suburbs.
Thanks for a great week. It will go down as a great week for me!

“Best Accommodation in Australia”

94 Highett was the best accommodation my big family and I have ever stayed in Australia! We've been to Sydney and Perth too but neither place beat this accommodation in Melbourne. The property fits my large family of 12 and it felt like home away from home! It had everything a house should have and the location was fantastic too - very strategically located to almost everywhere. My family and I will definitely stay here again should we visit Melbourne. And best of all the owners including Jeff's sister Julie are very warm people. This made our stay more worthwhile.

“Great choice for families with children”
Reviewed December 8, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

person found this review helpful

We spent two nights at 94 Highett in November 2011, travelling in two family groups, including three children under four. We had plenty of space, privacy and very accommodating hosts, which always makes travelling with small children much easier.

We used a combination of the upstairs, downstairs and attic/studio suites and can recommend all three options. The upstairs suite has a main bedroom, a second room (which can be turned into another bedroom or used as a "sitting room"), and a family bathroom, including shower and separate bath. The downstairs suite has two bedrooms (one of which can comfortably fit a portable cot or single foldaway bed), a large bathroom with a spa bath, and a living room. The attic room is quite quirky - it is under the eaves over the garage (which I think used to be a stables or similar when the house was first built?) and has a nice view over the rooftops to the city, as well as access to an outdoor terrace. It has a tiny bathroom (shower and toilet), with the sink separate in the room. The room is small; it is best suited to a single or a couple, but that said, we easily fit a portable baby cot in there. It is not connected to the house's central heating, but there is an air conditioning unit and a column (oil-filled) heater, so you can manage the temperature nicely.

The breakfasts were excellent and included fresh fruit and juice, great coffee, and a range of cooked and continental options. We were able to use the off-street parking, although the location is very central and there are plenty of walking/public transport options.

We felt very welcome at this property and would highly recommend it. The whole house is beautifully appointed, with all the period features, and was a more charming (and cheaper!) option than a sterile hotel. The hosts (Jeff and Lexie) were terrific.
