“Lovely and comfortable house ..”
Reviewed 9 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I recently stayed at 94 Highett Street for a work trip in Melbourne with 5 others. We were warmly greeted by Julie, who gave us the in's and out's and allowed us to drop our bags early in the day although she was busy doing the swap around for us.
The house is well heated (for the cool Melbourne winters) and quiet to sleep in. The rooms are big and well equipped (TVs, bar fridge etc) and the beds are comfy. It is a 5 minute walk to restaurants and shops, as well as a train station and tram stops.
I would highly recommend 94 Highett for your extended Melbourne stays.

“Excellent, just don't use the recomended taxi driver!”
Reviewed 9 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

A slightly quirky property, but no worse for that, but a great choice due to Jeff and Lexie. Easy to explore from as conveniently situated. Wonderful breakfast with freshly squeezed oranges every morning. Home made bread. Enough to satisfy even the greediest visitor (aka Big Dave). The property is perhaps a little tired in places but this did not spoil our enjoyment. However I would suggest you don't use the taxi driver they recommend. We booked him for our trip to the airport and not only did he not turn up but we were unable to get hold of him, he didn't return our calls and we may have missed our flight as it took sometime to arrange a replacement if our flight hadn't been delayed.

“Great property and perfect location”
Reviewed 15 January 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Third time in Melbourne but the first time at 94 Highett. Wonder why we haven't found this place any earlier as it's just perfect to explore they city. Quite residential location but still just a few minutes on the tram to the CBD. Or if you feel like the beach, a little longer but still direct tram ride to St. Kilda.
We had the huge ground floor unit with more than enough space for us two and enjoyed the quietness. No other guests on the same floor and every unit has it's own entrance, so you can enjoy full privacy until everybody meets up for a chat and a lovely, fresh prepared breakfast in the large kitchen. Jeff is an excellent and more than helpful host who will assist you wherever he can. Once again thanks for storing our bike boxes! We'll definitely be back if we come to Melbourne again sometime in the future.

“Excellent place!!”

Stayed for 3 nights at the 94 Highett B&B. First time in Melbourne and not familiar with the transport systems and way around. Jeff and Julie were very friendly, hospitable and they gave us plenty of advise on the places we want to go, the trams to take and etc. Jeff even loaned us the Myki cards which we could easily top up at the 7-11 at Bridge Road to take us to CBD which is about 10 minutes by tram. The property is clean and beautiful so comfortable for the 7 of us with a small park opposite where my children enjoyed playing after a day's sightseeing while grandpa and grandma took their evening stroll. There is a Coles nearby where we get all our grocery needs. There are many shops/Restaurants at Bridge Road but unfortunately we do not have time to shop there.
The best part of the stay is the daily cooked breakfast prepared by Jeff for all of us every morning. Bacon, eggs, mushrooms,tomatoes, orange juice, homemade bread, cappucino and cereals. Yummy breakfast ! my kids remembered it as one of their highlights of their stay in Melbourne i.e the breakfast prepared by Uncle Jeff.
Jeff went all the way to make our stay a comfortable one. He even drove us to the car rental in Palmer Street to collect our rented car on the last day of our stay in Melbourne before we continue our journey to the Great Ocean Road. We were so touched by his kindness and hospitality.
Would highly recommend 94 Highett Street to anyone who needs accommodation near Melbourne CBD especially for families where it would be so much more comfortable to stay together under one roof.

“Close to everything, perfect!”
Reviewed 25 November 2012 for a stay in November 2012

Stayed here the week of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival with girl friends. We had the bottom part of the house which sleeps 4. I felt like I was at home. Jeff was a great cook as well being very helpful. Nothing seemed to much trouble. Even got the transport card to put some credit on so we could get around for the week we were there. It is so close to everything, Richmond shopping, Chapel Street, Melbourne CBD and all little inner city suburbs.
Thanks for a great week. It will go down as a great week for me!
