Joy's home is a welcoming, warm, safe and inviting haven amidst the buzz of lovely St Kilda. Just a few minutes walk to the St Kilda Botanical Gardens and an easy walk into St Kilda restaurants and shops, the house is in a perfect location whether guests are wanting to "cosy" into the house for stay at home dinners by the fire or go for an easy walk to the many restaurants and cafes nearby. The house is generously equipped with everything a guest could possibly need, from an amazingly equipped kitchen to beautiful linen on all the beds. We travelled as a family group of 7 comprising three generations and the house provided all of us the comfort, privacy and communal spaces we wanted. One of the lovely things about Joy's home is that whilst it is home to her beautiful momentos of a family life happily lived in that space for the past 35 years, it is also a place where guests can feel totally and immediately at ease. It is a wonderful mix of comfort and space. I will return in a heartbeat when we next have a large family gathering.
