Sorry, room occupied until further notice. This homestay welcomes a female guest.
South Yarra is one of the best places to live in Melbourne.
My guest enjoys a bright, attractive, air-conditioned and heated upstairs room with double bed and private en-suite shower and basin. The room is in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom and 2 separate toilet townhouse with courtyard garden and tennis court. This is a secure residence suitable for a discerning and respectful female guest (possibly post grad) who appreciates a quality, quiet and supportive home environment. The room is fully furnished and equipped.
