Within five minutes walk of home is Newport Lakes - a beautiful native bushland oasis with two big lakes, lots of native birds and grassy spots for picnics. Also close by are playgrounds, a yoga studio, and, most importantly, a café pumping out great cups of Melbourne coffee. We also have a couple of bikes and helmets that you’re more than welcome to use during your stay, so you can take a short ride to Williamstown beach (10 minutes) and have a dip, or cycle through the nearby wetlands and coastal reserves on the Hobsons Bay Coastal Trail. We’re a 15 minute walk from the train station or a quick five minute bicycle ride. From there it’s a 15 minute train ride into Melbourne’s CBD, with services running every 10 or so minutes to the City. Along the train line you’ll find some great destinations: Scienceworks Museum in Spotswood and amazing cafes and restaurants in Yarraville and Seddon. Footscray – one of Time Out magazine’s ‘World’s Coolest Neighbourhoods’(!) – is the home of great bars, fresh produce from Footscray Market and a wonderful melting pot of cultures. Further afield, it's a 50 minute drive to Geelong and just over an hour to Torquay - the start of the Great Ocean Road. Along with this, we're only 25 minutes drive from Melbourne International Airport.

Member description
We’re fairly well travelled and have been lucky enough to live in a few different countries, but there’s always more to see and discover, which is why were so excited to join this community. Food, nature and local culture are big inspirations for our travel choices, as well as meeting locals and learning everything we can about a place. Whilst new to PLU, we have a great deal of experience house and pet-sitting and always display the same love, care and respect to your home that we do to our own.
