A whole floor in a fascinating old distillery & malting complex - a calm oasis within an old industrial area now home to art galleries, fashion houses and creative startups. Minutes from vibrant Gertrude & Smith Sts and a lovely walk through parks to the CBD.
Our living room upstairs is open to the gallery so we ask you to be quiet in this area when we're at home.
Please keep the upstairs kitchen and gallery clean after use as these are shared areas.
No smoking inside the building but you can in the courtyard or back lane.
You a very welcome to explore our rather eclectic book collection - just put books back where you find them.
Please let us know beforehand if you intend to bring other people into our home.
Mercedes has a background in social work/counselling, teaching, farming & fashion and follows passions in art and craft, gardening, home renovation and volunteer activities. Paul had a university career in science, education, software development and information system and is occupied on a range of woodwork, jewellery, home renovation & app development projects. We've both travelled quite widely over the years and have grand plans for the future.
Airbnb was a revelation to us - discovered through Paul's daughter, an active host in Fairfield and frequent traveller. Now multiple family members have become active and enthusiastic hosts and travellers. We love living in this great part of Melbourne with its history, architecture, galleries, cafés and dynamic cultural mix and feel privileged to be able to share our passion with others. We'll be only too pleased to help you make the most of your stay in Melbourne.
