Linton started Beyond a Room with the idea that hosting should be easier and travelling should be experienced in the shoes of a local. He worked for AirBnB photographing over 200 homes and found that everyone he met was tired of asking their mother to check-in their guests or clean their place. In his spare time (wait, what spare time?), you might find him skipping down to the coast to catch a wave or two.
The Grain Store on Flinders lane has the best breakfast plus the lady who runs it is a champ. For fine dining, Cumulus is a little further east on the same street and for the best bar in town 1000 Pound Bend up on Little Lonsdale has it all, an art gallery, beer and burgers with free wifi.
Studied architecture in Helsinki (the degree, not the band).
As an elite problem solver and entrepreneur the start-up environment has lots of interesting food for his creative mind! If he's not busy coding in the office, you’ll probably find him strumming a guitar or building his own tiny house in the bush.
The number one pizza place in Melbourne is Gradi in Crown Casino, which is perfect as a follow-on from the best cocktails in town, found at Boiler Maker on Lonsdale St.
When he's not answering calls and sending emails in the office, you might see him reading a book, taking photos of things that pique his interest or maybe writing music.
Laksa King in Flemington (worth the short tram ride from the CBD) – his favourite dish is the beef curry laksa. For a whisky or a craft beer, check out Boilermaker House – they've got the largest selection of whiskies you'll find anywhere.
He once won a high school Battle of the Bands competition in Saudi Arabia - whilst wearing pajamas.
When he's not providing guests with excellent recommendations and customer service, you'll find him teaching Zumba classes, learning new languages and reading fantasy fiction novels. He pretty much knows a sentence or two in every language to give our guests a warm welcome in their native tongue.
Worth the wait, Chin Chin restaurant on Flinders lane has the Feed Me menu, just be careful of the spicy dishes! Mama-sita for mexican, Meat and wine co for a delicious steak in Southbank (my annual tradition) otherwise the Lygon Steakhouse and Charcoal Grill for Balkan cuisine (order off the house specials menu).
The under 16 runner-up for ballroom and latin american dancing annual awards 2000.
