The room: A bright, sunny, furnished room with large cupboards with large window overlooking greenery and tree tops (apologies for night time photo above). The room is furnished with a double bed, bedside table and chest of drawers. You will also have your own bathroom (big and bright also).
The apartment: Gorgeous and sun filled 2 bedroom leafy outlook apartment in a lovely, quiet, inner city apartment complex with friendly, considerate and community minded neighbours.
The apartment is split over two levels, downstairs is the kitchen and living areas which look out on to our very own massive, sunlit courtyard. Upstairs contains 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and has excellent heating and aircon.
It is a very comfortable, spacious and beautiful apartment to come home to and relax in over your weekend.
Please note: This room would be suited to a couple who enjoy a quiet home life. This apartment is definitely a little sanctuary.
I spend 90% of my time at my partner's home so you would largely have the home to yourself.
However, I do enjoy the quiet and do not entertain regularly at home. So if you are someone who likes to have people over frequently or like to entertain at home often - this may not be the right fit for you.
Access to public transport: We are spoilt for choices in South Melbourne. Trams are within 5 mins walk from our doorstep: Domain interchange - all trams, Park Street No. 58, Eastern Road No. 1, plus Clarendon Street No. 12.
About me: My name is Jenna, I'm a warm, friendly, mid 40s professional. When I am living at the apartment I tend to be a bit of a house cat. Mon-Fri I enjoy spending time at home, but generally I'm in and out most of the weekend. I have a stunning chocolate point siamese cat (his name is Mr Skeaty) who lives with me - he is sweet and gentle. So I guess it's important that you like cats too and don't mind seeing a kitty litter tray in the apartment.
I'm pretty relaxed and like to have a laugh and don't like to take things too seriously (except rent of course) ;). I'm a bit of a clean freak in the kitchen, but not OCD (but close ;D). Happy to share a meal now and then. :)
Utilities (electricity and wifi) : included in rent.
Natalya (UK): Living with Jenna in her beautiful home is part of the reason I fell for Melbourne. Moving to another part of the world is daunting, but I immediately felt very settled and at home, at Jenna's. If I didn't have other commitments, I'd be staying with her indefinitely! (Apr 2017)
Lina and Blaise (USA): Living with Jenna at her gorgeous place has been a joy for my partner and I. The apartment is spacious, comfortable, and very well located, just steps to a heap of restaurants and shops. Jenna has also been a fantastic roommate; clean, organised, trustworthy and thoughtful! She is very easy to live with. Unfortunately we are moving out of Melbourne but if it wasn't for that we wouldn't leave this gem!

Ina (Germany): I lived with Jenna in her beautiful apartment in a quiet area of South Melbourne on and off for the 3 years. I spend part of my life in Germany and the other here in Melbourne. The highlights of the light-filled apartment for me were the wonderful sunny terrace and the fact that each room has its own bathroom. I also loved to live in a clean and well-maintained environment.
Sharing with Jenna was very pleasant. She is an easy-going, modern and health-conscious woman. We enjoyed good chats, but at the same time it was important for each of us to have time to ourselves. Jenna is very considerate and helpful.
I am sad to leave this beautiful place, but have to pursue other goals back home in Germany that lead in a different direction.
