“This apartment was very conveniently located right in the middle of Melbourne - we found it a perfect base for setting out from and it was a lovely comfortable home to come back to at the end of each day. Mark and Jo were very kind and helpful and we were delighted with our first house-swap in Australia!”
“Mark and Jo's apartment was fabulous. You couldn't be closer to the heart of Melbourne's shops, cafes and tram stops that can take you anywhere you may want to go. The apartment itself is gorgeous, a quiet haven from the city streets, with beautiful, high quality decor and even linen provided! Mark and Jo were delightful to communicate with, responding promptly, and met us with a lovely welcome at the apartment. Thanks you so much Mark and Jo. We definitely hope to come back again!”
