Guestbook comments from the owner

Great house in a fantastic location. So close to everything, shops, transport and restaurants. Walking into the house straight away felt so comfortable and like a home. Our host Louise was so easy to deal with. Very responsive from the day we enquired, to the day we left. Have to say one of the most comfortable beds I have ever stayed in! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely stay again.

Such a great place to stay. Perfect weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a brilliant place for our group of 8 girls to stay for a long weekend in Melbourne. Plenty of room, easy and secure, perfect location for great coffees, bars and food. Lumberjack coffee around the corner was the best!

Accomodation Perfection !!

  • 5 of 5

Two Five Zero was the perfect accommodation for our recent trip to Melbourne with friends to watch AFL.

The pictures do not do the house justice with and was beyond our expectations. A great variety of small cafes and restaurants are close by within walking distance and also a short tram ride in to the city .

The hosts were more than accommodating with a couple of special requests and provided us with plenty of dining and tourist attractions.

You can even walk to the MCG in 15 minutes allowing for you to take in even more sights and sounds along the way .

I would highly recommend anyone looking to stay in Melbourne booking this accomodation and you will be very happy with your choice.

Well equipped house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family recently stayeg here and the layout of the house was perfect for us. The kids were kept entertained with a cupboard full of toys and Fetch TV. The location was so convenient with cafes, convenience stores and Dan Murphy’s all in close walking distance as well as a tram stop close by. We loved the roof terrace and the owners were very responsive and accommodating.

The perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We can thoroughly recommend staying at two five zero, it is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. The outdoor areas are fantastic and the view of Melbourne City from the terrace is beautiful. Would love to return and see more of Melbourne and the restaurants on near by swan street. There is also a great little coffee shop just across the street..

excellent property

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. There were three generations there for nearly a week. We particularly enjoyed sitting at the table overlooking the city. The master bedroom is enormous and the views by night are lovely. The owner was very accommodating. I would recommend staying there. Easy access to trains, trams etc and all the amenities necessary. Enjoy!
