About our home

Our home is in the leafy bayside suburb of Ripponlea, with the charm of a period style home plus modern living convenience. Bright and spacious, it is moments from the train station and local village strip with everything you need. Only 12 minutes into the city by train, and close to St Kilda, Elwood and the beach.

Our home has three bedrooms (plus study which can be a spare fourth bedroom), two bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen, and separate dining and living areas. It also features an alfresco area out the back with a large bbq on the covered deck, and a lush tranquil garden space to relax in at the front. There is offstreet parking available for one car. Heating and cooling in home.

This is a our second home we rent out on Airbnb, and have achieved five star ratings and superhost status. You can have a look at our home in more detail at tinyurl.com/ripponlearetreat

We would like to try home swapping via swaps (non simultaneous or simultaneous) or use points. Open to anywhere and especially interested in a beach or snow area, and short breaks in Australia/NewZealand.
