Two Bedroom, Garden Flat, 4 Kms from Melbourne Uni

This lovely little apartment is at the back of our garden and is accessed by a path down the side of our house. It is separate to the house and quite private.

The apartment has two bedrooms, one with a double bed and one with an extra long and wide King single with a futon mattress, a desk, built-in wardrobes and windows overlooking the garden/courtyard area. The lounge room sits between the bedrooms and has a large, flat screen TV, sound system, 2 comfortable armchairs and gas heater. Large floor to ceiling glass doors open onto the leafy courtyard outside.

The apartment is fully self-contained with well equipped kitchen and washing machine.

Wifi is available for exclusive use in the apartment and in the garden outside.

Located in Northcote, close to North Fitzroy and the Merri Creek, we are very well placed for public transport: trams, train and bus. A short tram and bus ride will get you to Melbourne University, or hop on a bike which will take less than 20 minutes. There is a direct tram line to Australian Catholic University, another direct tram line to Latrobe University. The local train, 3 minutes away will get you to RMIT.

We are a family of 2 who live in the main house. You can be assured of quiet and privacy, but we are happy to help with any questions you might have about the local area or the city as a whole.

About Me
I have been living in my home now for over 24 years. I grew up very close to where l am living now, so l am very familiar with my surroundings and what services are on offer in this area. I work for the local council in the area of Age and Disabilities. I enjoy travelling, gardening and socializing in my local area. Now that my family has grown up l have time to enjoy the pleasure of being in my garden either working in it or viewing the results of the hard work. I am fortunate to be living in a friendly street with neighbors that look out for one another. I walk to public transport if l am heading into the city, and walk to the local cinema and environmental park (C.E.R.E.S) on market days. I have at the rear of the property, an occupied bungalow, secluded from the house by trees.

We had a wonderful month staying at Roben’s garden flat! The cozy well designed flat opens up onto a lovely garden area. We loved eating meals out there or just looking at it through the large glass windows.

We felt like every need had been taken care of when opening drawers: extra blankets, iron, grocery cart, nice dishes, extra cooking utensils, interesting books and movies.

Roben kindly took out books on travel for us from the library. She also helped us with directions to local tourists attractions. We felt she was there if we needed her but gave us our own privacy also.

We enjoyed the quick walk from the train stop to her door and enjoyed the picturesque street houses with interesting architecture features. We also used the tram line which was equally handy.

The local village to shop and have coffee in felt like a small community. I needed to find a doctor and Northcote had a great client right on its Main Street. Lots of funky stores, great pub food and a well stocked boutique liquor store with knowledgeable friendly staff. We bought our main groceries in this community also.

If and when we do come back to Melbourne, we would definitely rent Robin’s garden flat again. Summary: Excellent host, reasonable price, wonderful location.
