Close enough to the city to be convenient, far enough away to get out from the hustle and bustle of closer suburbs. Kew is a safe and friendly suburb with a lot of boutique shopping, heaps of great restaurant options, plentiful parks and excellent public transport. Located less than 10KM from the CBD making is easy to experience all that Melbourne. Two minute walk to the bus stop which going to the city.
“We stayed at Saiphin's place for over 2 weeks (we extended for a second week). The layout was not exactly as expected but we had a lovely stay. Saiphin was very easy to contact and friendly. The place was sparkling clean, and the pantry was very well stocked, there is lots of linen available and in a very good location close to walking trails and cafes.”

“The perfect hideaway in Kew - close to everything but so quiet and peaceful. We loved the light filled space, privacy, the Velux skylights with block out blinds, the kitchenette was fully functional and the amenities and homely touches really lovely (shampoo, conditioner, teas, cooking oil, jams, etc). Jayne the host was very responsive and considerate of our needs and also provided plenty of advice for the area. We managed to get a large SUV down the alley (right of way) and into the garage OK - once you have done it once or twice it's easy. Comfortable space to laze and work - the wifi was good and it came with an Apple to livestream free to air TV and watch Netflix (your own account is required). We really enjoyed our hideaway and also recommend stargazing at night through the skylights.”
OUTBACK … DAREBIN Our delightfully compact and secluded bungalow. A bushy retreat near Darebin Parklands and Darebin Creek in Ivanhoe. Join the birds and the bees in our large backyard.
“This beautiful space surrounded by trees and birds was a wonderful place to spend an extended stay! The bungalow has everything you could need and was exactly as described. Great cooking facilities, a strong shower in a simple ensuite and a lovely back porch to have breakfast each morning beneath the trees. Located on a leafy street, it’s just a short 5 min walk to Ivanhoe shops for cafes and Woolworths/Coles as well as the library, coin laundry and Ivanhoe train station. I would return to Outback Darebin in a heartbeat. Thankful to have met Penny and Jim who made my stay easy through quick responses and tips about local spots and nearby nature trails. Really nice people. I’ll be back!”
