Geweldige locatie

Bright, east-facing bedroom with a leafy green view. You'd be staying with me & my cat, Pablo. He is pretty easy going, friendly, but also independent, often out during the day but home at night...much like myself.

We have compost bins downstairs, recycling, a bike you can borrow & an awesome bulk food store nearby, so this is the perfect home-away-from-home for an environmentalist abroad!

5min walk to Balaclava station & all the excellent cafes of Carlisle St. Easy 15min train trip to CBD.

De ruimte
The building has good insulation so stays fairly cool in summer and warm in winter without central air-conditioning. You'll find a fan and a heater in your room that you are of course welcome to use if you need to, and on very hot days I highly recommend you help me keep the house cool and close your blinds completely. I have block out blinds that work great to keep to whole house cool on such days.

All windows have fly screens, which means you will have a peaceful, mosquito-free sleep on warmer nights.

There is a balcony too which gets a nice view of the sunset and also has a BBQ which you're more than welcome to use, I only ask that you remember to turn off the gas when done.

The apartment is on the second floor meaning that there are some stairs, but I am more than happy to help you with any luggage up the stairs.

Toegang voor gasten
You are free to make yourself at home, all I ask is that you leave things as you found them, meaning if you cook; please clean up after yourself.

There is an oven with a grill function, induction stovetop, all the pots and pans you could ever need, fridge, freezer, a blender for smoothies etc, a pasta maker if you're into making pasta, sadly no toaster or microwave but otherwise everything you might need to cook up a storm.

The bathroom has a washer and dryer but I also have an indoor clothes caddy where you can hang your clothes to dry the eco-friendly way, if time permits.

The living room coffee table & dining table both make great work stations with nearby power outlets if you need to get on your laptop, and there is WiFi of course. Downstairs I have a bike with helmet and bike lock which is yours to ride around should you wish, I rarely use it myself and would be happy to see it be of good use.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
I'm quite a passionate environmentalist so I'd really appreciate it if guests could minimise the amount of waste they bring into the home, recycle where appropriate, and help me conserve energy & water where possible. Less for my bills and more for the planet.

Saint Kilda East, Victoria, Australië

Very safe neighbourhood, with many great little shopping strips around and SO many great cafes.

Balaclava has the advantage of being well connected to vibrant & funky St Kilda, but just a little removed from the chaos. It's a safer, calmer suburb than St Kilda. There is a small park at the end of my street, but there is also the beautiful Ripponlea Reserve and manor as well as one of my personal favourite parks, Alma Park, each only a 15 minute walk away.

The beach is an easy 15-20 minute walk away too, and Chapel Street is 1 train stop away or a half hour walk - where you'll find the BEST oppe shoppes (/thrift stores), cool bars & eateries, and the beautiful Astor Theatre - a 1920's art deco theatre that plays movie doubles every night, including many cult classics and arthouse films.

Melbournian, working as a small business operator making natural cosmetics in St Kilda, passionate about sustainable development and living, urban design, architecture, the sciences, MUSIC, film, photography, travel, reading, cooking and exploring cities! Aside from my native tongue, hablo español, Eλληνικά, un peu du français, un poco italiano, ein bisschen deutsch, základní české and basically pick up as much as I can in whichever city I find myself in. I am the kind of traveller who prefers to stay and get to know a place rather than visit as a tourist, and I believe the best way to do so is to stay longer, walk slower, and talk to as many people as possible (and be safe).

Tijdens je verblijf
This apartment is my home and I am a Melbourne local so of course if you need anything or have any questions - just ask!

I do however run my own business from home and tend to work long hours often starting early, so generally I tend to keep to myself and do my own thing. If you are looking to stay somewhere where you can be left alone and feel free to come and go, but maybe have a tea/wine/chat with someone of an evening, then this is the place for you.
