We are a young family of 5 heartily involved in sports & church activities.

Add to all this a separate access via an external stair so you can come & go as you please.

Reviews of this property
Wow - what a fabulous experience with Daryl & family! And such a lovely apartment too! Thank you so much for your warm welcome and gracious hospitality - we would highly recommend this experience! A definite highlight of our trip
After a long absence from Australia we (my family and I) needed a reliable temporary accommodation to start up again.
Daryl's place seemed to be a good option. As soon as we arrived we confirmed it had been the right decision, Daryl and his family made us feel welcomed straight away and really helped us to find our way around in Melbourne very quickly.
It's a great place, clean and tidy, it offers privacy the necessary privacy that you need and there are shops and public transport around the corner.
We really recommend it, no matter what your needs are.
