We are a small family living in Elwood, Melbourne. We love travelling, visiting family and friends and exploring new places (especially playgrounds!). Airbnb has been a great way to travel in Europe and Asia, and we really enjoyed the little luxuries of having a home away from home (especially with little ones), and enjoying unique experiences you would not get vs staying in hotels.
Eating great food is our favourite past time. Whenever we go somewhere, I always look up where are interesting or new places to eat (so I am happy to help out with tips in Melbourne, and also kid-friendly ones too)!
We fell in love with this place in Ripponlea. One day, it will be our "forever home". In the meantime, we are excited to be sharing it with you.
