The apartment itself is set in a tranquil City Oasis complex. The apartment complex has a number of attractive features including Solar heated pool, Hot Spa and Tennis court. These are all set in beautiful well maintained gardens. The apartment is set on the ground floor for really easy access. Many alternative airbnb listings in this complex are up multiple flights of stairs as there are no lifts in this complex. You will be sharing the apartment with me, Mark, a 45 year old pro golfer

Just a couple of simple house rules:
No smoking inside
All shared spaces to be kept clean and tidy
Respect the other people who share the complex and adhere to body corporate rules i.e. no alcohol, glass, or smoking in pool, gym, spa or tennis court areas, no laundry on the front courtyard, abide by noise restrictions etc
Hi, I'm Mark a 45 year old professional golfer. I'm originally from the UK but after coming to Australia for nearly 20 years to play the pro tour here I have decided to settle in Melbourne, one of my favourite cities in the world.
I have traveled the world extensively both for golf and pleasure, and enjoy meeting people from different countries and backgrounds.
I also run several other airbnb listings in Melbourne with my friend Neil, you can see them here:
Apart from that enjoy cycling, reading, eating out and especially chocolate (and lots of it, don't leave any lying around :-)
I look forward to meeting you and showing you this fantastic complex and city.
