About Me
I am a professor with a research area in Disability and inclusion. My partner is a retired professor of psychology and we have travelled extensively and lived and worked in the Uk, Netherlands, Norway and New Zealand. We now spend half our time in Norway.. Between us we speak English Norwegian, Danish, Swedish and some French and German. We are looking to rent our lovely penthouse apartment for minimum periods of three months - the apartment is child friendly but not pet or smoke friendly so no pets or smokers. We are keen cooks so the kitchen is very well equipped including a range of good books and many kitchen gadgets including a pasta maker. We have a good Cd collection featuring lots of jazz and classical music. we are looking for tenants who would like to rent our home with everything they need in it other than our personal positions, clothes etc which will of course be removed.

Moving overseas with family is a stressful experience. I couldn't imagine spending our first few weeks in Australia confined in a hotel room or at a soulless AirBnb. Staying at Sue's place has been an amazing experience, and has made the transition to our new life much easier. The apartment is spacious, beautiful, and comfortable. We were able to focus on re-establishing our family routines from day one, because we found everything we needed to cook, entertain the children, and many, many books to read during the nights we spent awake fighting jet lag! The location is also perfect - right in front of a large park that connects to a sports fields, a brand new playground for the kids, the velodrome, and the ravine (at Merry Creek Trail). There is plenty to see and do in the neighborhood (check out CERES!), and there's two tram lines less than 10min walking distance from the apartment, that will take you to CBD in 25-30min. Finally, Sue is a pleasure to interact with. She has been responsive to any questions we had about the apartment and made sure we were settled and happy during our stay. I don't hesitate in recommending her place to anyone looking for a long-term rental in Melbourne. Excellent Daiane Scaraboto 9/2/2019 4:25:00 PM
