Reviews of this property
Next to his house in West Melbourne the host also has a property in the city of Melbourne... you just jump out of the house and around the corner you jump into the tram which brings you to the city in half an hour and to St. Kilda Beach in maybe 45 minutes... perfectly located for a city holiday... the house has a very big room in the ground floor, a big living room including kitchen in the 1st floor and three smaller rooms in the 2nd floor, also you can use the roof (which we did use for meditation (www.samarpanmeditation.org)... of the three rooms in the upper floor we had room no. 2 which seems quite a little bit small and smaller than rooms no. 1 and 3, but may be this was neutralized by the big living and kitchen room area which we had almost completely for ourselves during our stay there... so if you don´t mind using bath room with other guests and the maybe small size of room no. 2, this appartment can be recommended with good conscience...
We were a group of Samarpan Meditators (www.samarpanmeditation.org) and visiting Melbourne because of the Inauguration of the Energy Statue in Werribee and a Discourse of our Yoga and Meditation Master Shree Shivkrupanand Swami. As we were a group of international Samarpan Meditatorswith 8 resp. 9 people from Germany, South Africa, West Australia and New Zealand with different arrival times some flexibility was necessary... but we found this flexibility with our hosts in West Melbourne... all the shuttles from and to airport were done in time without exception... If you don´t mind sharing one bath room with all the other guests this appartment can be recommended with good conscience...
The owners of the house was very nice and accommodating. The house was nice and well planned but unfortunately not so clean. The owners' dog had free access to the small backyard where it made its needs. Dog Poo picked never away!
Ägarna av huset var mycket trevliga och tillmötesgående. Huset var trevligt och välplanerat men tyvär inte så rent. Ägarnas hund hade fri tillgång till den lilla bakgården där den gjorde sina behov. Hundbajset plockades aldrig bort!
Picking to stay here was the best thing we could have possibly done! Not only do they offer a beautiful home but they are lovely people as well. You don't just get a place to stay you get welcomed into their home. They have helped us out so much being new to this city. Can't recommend this place high enough! thank you!
The service and hospitility were great. The house of accomodation was very nice and everything you need is available.
There are just a few bigger problems in this accomodation:
- in the announcement was not clear that we had to share the bathroom without toilet and the only toilet with all other guests in the hostel (in our case 4 other guests)
- our own guest-room was the smallest room in the house with just a small window at the top of the bed and no Air Condition. In such a small room which is suitable for a single person we found a double bed and on top of it another bed for the third person. If we knew this before we would have never rented this room with 3 persons.
Regarding these problems and the fact that it is high risk to come back home in the evening with public transport as you have to walk along a highway without walkway because there ist a huge roadwork this year the accommodation price is much to high.
When asking for a something to add to write a review each of us all came back from it with a very enjoyable and happy experience, here are our thoughts:
Andrew: "After arriving, the three of us were welcomed into a very modern home, Ryan and Rhiannon were more than happy to make the stay as enjoyable as possible! It's a great experience to have hosts that give ideas on places to go, things to do, travel ideas and also give thoughts on their own experience in Melbourne. I recommended people to experience Melbourne in this affordable and very enjoyable way."
Chris: "The Best West of Melbourne was very comfortable and convenient for our week long stay. The house is modern and lavishly furnished with plenty of space for all guests. Ryan & Rhiannon were great, easy going hosts and were happy to recommend plenty of things around the Melbourne area. Would definitely stay here again and happily recommend to others looking for affordable accommodation in Melbourne."
Nick: "Being a lover of Melbourne and only having experienced staying in the CBD, it was thoroughly enjoyable to spend a week in the western suburbs of Melbourne. The house was very spacious, modern and our hosts were most welcoming and polite, and very knowledgeable of the area. I would certainly consider staying in the house again and have been recommending this to my friends and family already.”
