Melbourne - Old Trafford Apartment
|Address||Old Trafford, Berwick, 3806 Melbourne, Australia|
We are a young family of 5 heartily involved in sports & church activities. We love keeping fit and live on a quarter acre (1000m2) block in middle class Berwick, We have a large 7 bedroom house which includes a 3 bedroom upper floor apartment (which is where you will be staying). The main bedroom (Summer Room) has a Queen size bed & base with your own private bathroom, toilet & living area with stereo and 32" LCD TV. A second bedroom (Autumn Room) is available with another Queen size bed for extra travelers if required. There is also a third bedroom with a single bed. Add to all this a separate access via an external stair so you can come & go as you please.
There is an in ground pool to cool off in as well as dedicated on site parking. Fresh towels and linen, shampoo & conditioner provided.
We love meeting new people and have traveled via backpacker units as a family. You can eat upstairs in privacy as dining facilities are provided. Daryl works as a Building Designer & Deanna is always around the house to help with advice on local transport, eateries and things to see.
We are 2 minutes by car from the Monash (M1) Freeway entrance and 5 minutes bus ride (15-20 minute walk) from the Berwick railway station. Buses run every 20 minutes on weekdays and hourly on weekends. We are a 40 minute drive by car on the Monash Freeway (over 1 hour drive at peak hour)to Central Melbourne's shopping precinct , MCG and Etihad stadiums for AFL football, international cricket, Australian Open Tennis and all it's other attractions. Train takes about 70 mins to city. Only 1 hour drive to the Phillip Island Moto GP and access to Gippsland is just 5 minutes down the road. Access to the Great Ocean Road is just 90 mins away.
You can walk to over 10 different takeaway outlets and the supermarket in just 5 minutes and Berwick has some wonderful a'la carte restaurants. There is also an extensive network of bicycle trails which connect us with the South Eastern corridor of Melbourne and all the way into the city.
If you're arriving via the airport (Tullamarine or Avalon) then you can get the SkyBus to Southern Cross station in the CBD (where the SkyBus terminates). Then ride the Pakenham Line train to Berwick Station. The train ride takes about 70 minutes. We can be contacted via mobile from the train or station to pick you up on arrival at Berwick. Alternatively you can catch the 839 bus from Berwick Station to 100m from our doorstep.
Please note that there are no cooking facilities in the apartment other than a convection microwave & electric frying pan. Also the apartment is above our children's bedrooms and, due to noise, not suitable for children under 13 years of age. Therefore no booking will be accepted with children under the age of 13 years.
Guests should enter via the side gate
1. While the apartment is completely separate to our house it is directly above the lower floor where we live. In normal living situations you may hear some muffled sounds from us & we may hear some from you. That's just how it is. This has never been an issue for any of our guests.
2. You will have to use outside stairs to enter into the apartment.
3. You will need a car to get around Melbourne. Public transport will take you in & out of the CBD but not to all the tourist spots.
4. Public transport requires purchasing a travel Myki card first.
5. Please keep communication lines open about arrival times and arranging pick ups from the Berwick station.

Reviews of this property
Daryl and Deanna are such great hosts. They seem like a great family. It was a quiet, lovely and spacious apartment that we stayed in, the only "noise" was a joyous occasion celebrating their daughter's birthday. We rejoiced with them.
They give us lots of space and need for privacy. They are such friendly and personable people, that it seemed we have known each other for ages, funny that! It was a pity that our stay was so short, that the moment we said our goodbyes, we have been thinking of them and missing them already.
We would unreservedly recommend Daryl and Deanna any time for anyone who would love to explore Melbourne and still cherish a "home" away from home.
We enjoyed ourselves very much. The helpfulness of Famiulie is very large. Thank you for a lovely stay
Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Die Hilfsbereitschaft der Famiulie ist sehr groß. wir bedanken uns für einen schönen Aufenthalt
Nice place, very comfortable beds, ideal for travelling to Melbourne and the surrounding areas. The hosts were very informative with regards to places to visit etc and Berwick Village has some nice places to eat out in the evening.
I looked at a number of places prior to booking Old Trafford and, it didnt disapoint.
We really enjoyed our stay in Melbourne. Daryl and his family were nice hosts and the appartment was absolutely great - very clean and well appointed. Thank you very much!
Welcoming hosts.Picked me up from the station.First class accommodation.Spacious comfortable with everything I needed.Excellent bus service to Berwick then train to the city.
Really enjoyed my stay and the company of Charlie the dog.
We had an excellent stay at Daryl and Deanna's house. Excellent apartment style upper area, very comfortable and quiet. Great breakfast and snacks provided, highly recommended.
Deanna and Daryl have been the best hosts someone can ask for. They have given us like a "all included" package with regard to the beautiful apartment and so many hints how to get around best. The hole family gave us such a warm welcome, that we loved Australia from the very first day.
My daughter and I arrived at Old Trafford to a wonderful welcome from Daryl and Deanna. The apartment itself was just asdiscribed and even better. The main reason for our visit was to spend time with my grandaughter who is a student in Deakin University so the apartment was ideally placed for visiting her and she was able to stay over with us whenever she could. We visited Sydney for 6 nights over Easter and where allowed to leave a lot of our luggage in the apartment at no extra cost. I cant speak highly enough about our hosts, Deanna gave us some great tips on places to visit in the area and Daryl was very helpful, even Charlie the dog was very welcoming. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to stay within easy reach of Melbourne and within easy reach of the beautiful beaches and countryside. Celia and Carol.
