Romano's Place is perfect for holiday-makers because it's close and convenient to most major attractions, giving you an ‘access all areas’ pass to the world's most liveable city.

Pristinely presented, this designer-styled 1960s chic home is ideal for families offering 21st century comfort with climate control, free unlimited internet, fully equipped kitchen and laundry, two televisions, two-zone sleeping, as well as options for a high chair and portacot.

When we travel overseas, we always stay in 4- to 5-star accommodation so we’ve modelled this house on these standards with a touch of 1960s chic.


The layout of the house is perfect for families as it offers a two-zone sleeping arrangement, each with its own bathroom giving a single family, or two families staying together, great privacy options.


They're spacious, feature a lot of storage and each bed is finished in luxurious Sheridan manchester. For a complete listing of what each of the bedrooms include, please refer to the ‘Guest Access’ section below.

Living Area

Everyone can be together in the open-plan kitchen, dining and lounge areas. The lounge room has a sumptuous leather lounge as well as a television that offers both free-to-air and satellite channels, and the dining room has seating for eight. The kitchen is fully equipped with a large 70cm cooker, dishwasher, microwave and of course a fridge/freezer as well as all the utensils you need to cook everything from a roast dinner to a birthday cake.

Bathrooms & Laundry

They're a little on the cosy side but are fresh, clean and easy to use. The laundry is incorporated into the second bathroom and boasts a large, brand new washer/dryer so that you have every convenience in laundering your clothes.


The fully-secured backyard is perfect for relaxing or letting the kids play safely.


When you come and stay with us, we’re pleased to offer you the following benefits:

. A ‘Welcome Pack’ comprising tea, coffee, milk and biscuits as well as a bubbly drink for the adults and the kids

. Free, unlimited internet

. An optional portacot and high chair

. Hairdryer and essential toiletries as well as a Sheridan towel and facewasher for each guest

. In the lounge room you can enjoy watching free-to-air and satellite TV as well as DVDS, and in the Valentino Room there is a wall-mounted Smart TV so you can stream television, movies and more directly from the internet

. And when in season, please help yourself to the lemons, olives and figs in the backyard


This house is hard to beat in terms of location because it has many holidaying conveniences as well as some of Melbourne’s highlights only a short stroll away…

We live in Brisbane so unfortunately we're not able to greet you personally, however, we're only a phone call away.

In addition to the four-bedroom house on our property in Brunswick East, there is also a studio apartment that is rented on a permanent basis to a private tenant.

This tenancy has no impact on your stay as they have an entirely separate entrance to their residence and do not have access to the fully-secured backyard.

It is important to note, that the tenant has exclusive access to the driveway at all times, which means that you must always park your car elsewhere.


Brunswick and Carlton are significant areas in Melbourne’s rich cultural history.

After WWII, many European families left their war-torn homelands and arrived in Melbourne to cluster-settled in this area.

With a strong and steady Italian influx, Lygon Street one street away from Nicholson Street gave Australia its first commercial pizza house, its first commercial espresso machine and the first shop to bring extra virgin olive oil and mozzarella cheese to the local public.

Today, Carlton and Brunswick are urbanised hubs of Melbourne boasting some of the city's best European-style food and hospitality.


Romano’s Place is close and convenient to most of Melbourne’s major attractions - giving you an ‘access all areas’ pass to the world's most liveable city.

The transport options that are readily available at Romano’s Place are:

Public Transport – tram and bus

Private Vehicle – taxi, Uber and Flexicar

The best way to get around Melbourne is by tram and the house is perfectly situated on one of Melbourne's most iconic and popular tram lines - the 96. Between this tram line, and the number 1, which is also near the house, you can ride to most of the city’s major attractions

Stop 10 – Princess Theatre

Stop 9 – Parliament House

Stop 6 – Bourke Street Mall

Stop 1 – Southern Cross Station and Etihad Stadium

Stop 134 – Fitzroy Street Shopping and Restaurant Precinct

Stop 135 - St Kilda Beach, Acland Street and Catani Gardens

You can walk to, or catch a bus to, the number 1 tram that travels along Lygon Street and here are the highlights:

Stop 112 - Lygon Street Restaurant Precinct

Stop 1 – Melbourne University

Stop 8 - State Library, Melbourne Central and Queen Victoria Building

Stop 11 – Melbourne Town Hall

Stop 13 – Flinders Street Station, Federation Square and Australian Centre for the Moving Image

There are two bus lines that are within 150 metres of the house and these give you direct access to Lygon Street and Sydney Road as well as train stations.

We have provided more details regarding the buses in the “Welcome Manual” at the house.

Taxis and Ubers

Melbourne is well-serviced with both taxis and Ubers – all you need to do is call them.


A Flexicar is stationed less than 100 metres from the house and is available for hire by the hour or by the day – so you can go anywhere you like.

To access this service, you will need to register with Flexicar and gain your accreditation as an approved driver. This process can take a couple of weeks so we recommend you do this well before arriving in Melbourne. You can find all the details at their website.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient The property was suitable for our needs - attending a wedding in the park nearby and then a short tram ride to the reception. Close to a small shop, pub and tram stop. Accompanied by our 2 adult children. Loved the unique decor. When we had a problem we contacted Sally who attended to it immediately. On a main road so a little bit noisy.
