A traditional milk bar serving old fashioned milk-shakes are a speciality at Rowena a cornerstore cafe just roundthe corner.
Ice cream in a huge range of modern and traditional flavours can be bought on Swan Street at Mesina!
There are trams going to the city and suburbs running on both streets within a few minutes walk. Richmond Station with trains connecting to all suburbs is 10 minutes walk.
There is a very private rear garden with decking for relaxing, a sunny front porch and attractive city views at the front.
The house suits up to four adults in 2 double beds, plus a small study/spare bedroom with a small single bed and trundle suitable for children. A Portacot is available too.
The ground floor has reverse cycle air conditioning/heating, and bedrooms have ceiling fans for keeping cool in the summer.

More about us

  1. We are a couple mostly retired from work so have more time to travel. We are experienced house exchangers with Love Home swap and through other channels. Non- smokers always, we look after other people's homes with respect, and leave them clean, tidy and cared for. We usually travel alone and sometimes with my English sister and brother-in-law, also retired, living in London.

  2. Enjoy walking, visiting historic sites and cathedrals. Like to meeting new people and getting to know a neighbourhood.

  3. Our children are grown up and we enjoy spending time with our grandchildren in Melbourne, Adelaide and San Francisco
