Stay above a shop in a place with lots of character. The room is away from the main road and has a really peaceful feeling to it.
Make yourself at home, relax, surf the wifi or cook up a storm in a kitchen works great for the cook and chat kind of thing.
Your room has a stereo with AUX input and a desk if you need to clock up some screen time. Office type chair available if that is preferable.
The bed is quite firm and without any sagging in the middle.
Few rules required when there is respect and awareness. I'm pretty easy going.
Smoking in the bedroom is OK if the smoke goes out the window. Smoking in the living area if you have friends over is OK too if you keep the place ventilated so it doesn't sink into the furniture or drift downstairs.
Raised in Melbourne and widely traveled both for work and pleasure. I've spent much of the last ten years lining up accommodation for myself via in places like in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Berlin. I've had wonderful experiences as a guest and it's great that Airbnb is around now that I'm settled back in Melbourne and ready to host.
I love Melbourne for all it's hidden away gems and am always keen to find something fresh to do in the inner city like head to art opening or a performance. Maybe a party. My tastes tend towards the alternative but I don't care about the label - it's about quality.
I work in media ... a creative video type of guy with a passion for innovation. Ocasionally I also work behind the scenes on live events ranging from Meredith Music Festival to Rainbow Serpent Festival to ... ummm ... a Bon Jovi concert.
The world and it's daily goings on interests me greatly and I'm up for a wide range of conversations about this place or that way of doing things. I guess I'll always be a traveler.
I play music both electronic and more old skool as a hobby but these days I have trouble finding enough time ... So no need to bring earplugs :)
To me good, healthy home cooked food is one of life's true pleasures .... my parents probably have a lot to do with that.
And I think I'd get a reasonable score from past girlfriends and housemates when it comes to cleanliness. I'm tidy but not obsessive.
