Thank you for your interest in reading about my homestay which is for a female.
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 fully renovated en-suite shower and basin. The room is in a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom 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. You need only bring your suitcase as the room is fully furnished and equipped.
This city edge location is convenient to the CBD ( 3 kms.) St. Kilda Rd. (Bowen Cresc.), universities, city colleges, Alfred Hospital, library, shopping precincts, cafes, banks, cinemas, Toorak Rd. tram 58, South Yarra Railway Station, Punt Rd. north-south bus 245/246, recreation facilities, sports centres, Fawkner Park, the Royal Botanic Gardens and Yarra River.

For me, homestay is a personal, cultural experience and exchange, not a business.
