“Just what we wanted, perfect accommodation”
Reviewed July 3, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Private very comfortable suite with bathroom and lounge, private entrance, outdoor courtyard, lovely tea making provisions and everything we could have wanted, the owners are lovely welcoming hosts, and the breakfast is exceptional. Highly recommend if you are visiting melbourne and like somewhere homely and relaxing to stay. Easy to catch tram to city.
Excellent value

“Wonderfully Welcoming, Comfy and Relaxing.”
Reviewed May 29, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Easy to access - Skybus from the Airport, then the 96 Tram to stop 18. Well within walking distance from there.
Able to come and go as you please, with everything you may need at your finger tips.
Warm and friendly owners, preparing the most magnificent breakfasts and ensuring all is fresh and Beautifully presented.
Cost - great value for money and would gladly stay again.
Even enjoyed a beer and a game of scrabble at the pub a cross the round about!

“You have to stay here when you come to Melbourne”
Reviewed November 5, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is one of Melbourne's secret gems...Tucked away just off Nicholson St in Fitzroy (easy 10 minute tram trip from the city - route 96) hosts Sal and Vinnie could not be nicer. Booked Mum in for 2 nights - she said she won't stay anywhere else...Double bed - modern bathroom (shower) little lounge with tv/computer/bose sound - well stocked bar fridge at very reasonable prices - private courtyard - all great but it's the geniality and wonderfully welcoming hosts that nail it!
Fantastic breakfast - large or light - start your day off on the right note. You have to meet these people when you're next in Melbourne...in a word, FANTASTIC!

“Stay here!”
Reviewed September 20, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Just back from 4 nights with Sal and Vinnie in their lovely, comfortable, roomy B&B - more like an apartment with sitting room, private entrance and courtyard. Fitzroy North and Carlton North are delightful for browsing, shopping and eating. An interesting walk to lovely gardens, Museum, Zoo even into the CBD or, easy to catch the tram around the corner. Great breakfasts. Sal & Vinnie were so hospitable and helpful with Melbourne local knowledge for travellers. We'll be back.

We (parents and teenage daughter) stayed for 3 nights. The accommodation is lovely, and having the attached little sitting room with TV, and courtyard garden was a real bonus. Fabulous breakfasts (v good yoghurt, fresh fruit, homemade bread) and helpful, friendly hosts. They even got up at 05.00 to see us off! We used the driver that they recommend for airport arrival and departure.

“Fantastic location and service!”
Reviewed October 30, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Our stay with Sal and Vinnie was one of the highlights of our trip to Melbourne. We were there for almost three weeks and we felt like we were living at a home away from home. The breakfast provided was the BEST we have come across in our travels - fruits, toast, crossiants, cereal, omlette and best of all freshly squeezed orange juice every day. The ammenities are fantastic, with private entry and we were able to use their laundry for washing. The location is very near to two tram lines and an easy walk into the eclectic Brunswick St area. North Fitzroy village and restaurants are also in walking distance. The arranged pick up from the airport was also very handy as we found taxi drivers had trouble finding the street. Perfect place to stay for long city visits when a hotel room is just too small, or for people who want a bit more space and privacy. Other B&B's could learn a lot from the way this accomodation is run.
