We're a mother and two girls (10 and 16) living in leafy Hawthorn, close to Swinburne University and cafes, restaurants and gyms. It's a 13 minute train trip to Melbourne's CBD from near us, an 8-minute walk to the station. Our house is in a super quiet cul-de-sac (no passing traffic). The house is large so there's space for everyone to spread out, with a backyard and 2 separate toilets and showers. We're fairly relaxed at home, and if you're keen we can take you with us on weekends to markets, picnics, pools, beach, movies etc. We also have an independent young black cat who is outside all day and well behaved. We have another female student also in the home. We can cook healthy chicken, beef, lamb, vegetarian, plant-based, fish/seafood, Asian, Australian or European foods according to your tastes. Price is less if you don't want lunches or breakfasts.
