The building is original from first settlement days so vintage in THE best location in Melbourne. All spaces are small as is common with first settlement houses in Australia in the 1850's.

Smoking Outside Only Please.
No drunk behaviour.
Guests asked to be respectful, friendly and keep noise to usual levels.
Cleaning - we ask that guests wash their own dishes. We allocate Sunday's for house cleaning so if you need something sooner or more than once a week (ie linen changed, room vacuumed etc) please let us know or feel free to help yourself to the cleaning cupboard.
The house is an old style (we do not own it - we rent), this means old paintwork or outside leaves blow inside from time to time which can give the appearance that it isn't as clean when it actually is.
We clean every Sunday. Please do not expect standard modern living as this is a quirky original settlement townhouse with loads of charm.
We have taken this into consideration by setting the pricing low for the area and convenience to counter for this, so please do take this into consideration when booking and reviewing. We ask for easygoing non fussed travellers (and five stars :P)
