“Wonderful stay, comfortable family home, nice car. Great for visiting Melbourne, also did the beautiful Ocean Road, and Ballarat, worth a visit on it's own, fantastic place, great for history lovers and fans of Dr Blake. Melbourne was everything it's crack up to be. Hanh's place was welcoming and we soon felt at home, highly recommended. Janice from Chittering WA Loving lovehomeswapping.”
