Mooranda is as pretty as its picture.

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Mooranda, from the time of booking Mel Riel was the perfect host.

Melbourne town was chilly but the house was warm and welcoming. Location was great, tram stops at your door, train station 4 min walk a cosy pub called the Quiet Man was only 10 min walk.

Mooranda was well equipped, house was spotless and we loved the character of this home.

Thank you very much Mel Riel and your colleague Kiran for making our stay in Melbourne feel like home.

We will look you up again.

The Conley Family.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Mooranda Villa proved to be a perfect base for our group of 6 adults. The house is much larger than it appears in the photographs and there was ample space for us all with a lovely outdoor seating area at the rear of the property. Central Melbourne is an easy quick tram ride away.

From the initial enquiry to checking out the owner was extremely helpful.

Highly recommend.
