“Mark and Jo's stunning flat is beautifully presented and in the perfect location for exploring the vibrant city of Melbourne. Mark and Jo were gracious and generous hosts. Their home is beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable and well equipped. Despite being in the heart of the city the interior of the flat was absolutely silent... perfect considering we had fairly dramatic jet lag which meant a number of day time naps were required. This was our first homeswap and we are very honoured that Mark and Jo made it such an easy, comfortable and memorable (for all the right reasons) experience for us.”

“A European experience in a perfect apartment in the centre of Melbourne. Cant wait to return! Thanks Mark and Jo”
“We had a wonderful time in Melbourne Mark and Jo where the most thoughtful hosts. There is nothing that can be improved on suburb exchange”
“Our stay at Mark and Jo's Melbourne apartment was fabulous! The location is in a desirable area central to touring the city and walkable to eateries and shops. Yet it is a quiet oasis to relax at the end of the day! Tastefully furnished and very comfortable, as well as thoughtfully equipped with everything you need for your stay. We appreciated the fresh crisp linens, comfortable beds, as well as the Nespresso machine and the fresh fruit and staples that Jo provided. They provided a warm welcome and were very easy-going. Thanks Mark and Jo! ”
“This is a true haven away from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is super comfortable and quiet after a busy day doing the tourist things. Mark and Jo were very welcoming and a delight to communicate with. Highly recommend this beautiful apartment.”
“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!”
