Perks for the Parents

The residence is seriously stylish with luxurious touches from the lighting to the egg-shaped bathtub. The open kitchen/living space is great for preparing meals while keeping an eye on the kids, and the neat garden dining space has an outdoor kitchen for an Aussie BBQ to remember. The residence is also in a great location for exploring Melbourne as a whole - just jump on a tram - in a suburb with a lively and eclectic feel.

Why Kids Love it

There is a dedicated nursery bedroom with a toddler bed, toys and books, and a little space to play in the garden. Victoria Gardens, a local playground, is just 300m away. The hosts provide everything a small child could need, from a high chair to kids dishes, a tee-pee, a paddling pool, ride on toys and a small outdoor pirate ship.

Things to Know

The home is on one level and is very safe for young children. A trundle bed and a travel crib can also be provided. Note that the residence is usually home to a dog, who will be away during your visit.

About the Location

The residence is an easy walk from cafés, shop, a supermarket, public transport and parks. The closest train station is Hawksburn, 800m away. It takes 30 minutes to reach Melbourne International Airport by car. Car hire is recommended but not essential.

Accommodation Details

This Edwardian home is laid out on one floor with a double bedroom, kids bedroom, large bathroom with double shower and bathtub and an open plan living, dining and kitchen area. Doors open from the living space into the garden, which has an outdoor kitchen and grill plus laundry area and small patch of artificial turf.

Style Notes

While the building dates to the 1920s, the interior is fresh and modern, with statement lighting, pops of color in the wall art and clean lines throughout. The residence is uncluttered and sleek with modern fixtures and fittings. The gray-tiled kitchen area in the garden is particularly pretty, while the bathroom has a glamorous egg-shaped bath.

We are a family of 4! Our son name is Brooklyn and he is 4 years old and our youngest is Jackson who is 18mths. Both our boys love animals and reading books! Our favorite travel destination to date is Port Doulgas in QLD. Both of my sons are well travelled since they were both born in San Francisco. They have also travelled to NYC, New Zealand, Dubai, Singapore. So travelling is a way of life for us! We joined Kid & Coe because we travel to much and use home away from home rental when we travel. We wanted people to experience our home whilst we are travelling!

Hayley was very helpful before and during our stay. Her home was very well set up for young children. We really appreciated her recommendation sheet which listed everything we needed to know about the house and area (from hospital locations to great coffee shops!).

Vintage stores and a visiting farm

‘Pran’, as the locals call it, is an independent-spirited vibrant area just southeast of the CBD. Join the hippies browsing vintage stores on Greville Street, stroll café-lined pavements and admire the Victorian and Edwardian architecture. For kids there’s a great skate park and Prahran Market, good for food and also entertainment with face painting, music, dance classes and a visiting farm.
