Stay with Anthony Bruhn

I think my apartment would be amazing for your students, close and convenient to Moorabbin Airport (less than 5min), public transport and shops (Southland Shopping Centre).

A little bit about myself – I have taught Health and PE at Mentone Girls’ SC for 5years and am on the move to Wesley College next year. I play football for Footscray in the VFL. I can be hands on with the renter in helping them get settled if needed.

Please check out my listing, I currently have the rent at $380 per week (which includes unlimited internet and some utilities) but that can be negotiated. Have a look at my listing and see if you like it
