Overview I've been hosting for three years and have prided myself on providing a wonderful guest experience in Melbourne. The Melbourne Apartment is great for short term rentals of either two nights or up to two weeks. Nestled in a Heritage Listed Boutique Building (circa 1911), a vestige of the Melbourne “rag trade" area. in the beautiful Flinders Lane. Fully furnished with Queen size bed, and sofa, fully appointed kitchen, refrigerator and freezer, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, flat screen television, wifi, apple dock for ipad and iphone and is perfect for a couple, for one extra person there is a sofa bed. Located in the best spot in Melbourne, entrance is in the gorgeous Bligh Place, one of the most beautiful lanes in Melbourne for cafes and restaurants. In fact a showpiece lane for the City of Melbourne, where cafes, restaurants and residents coexist in harmony. It will feel like you are in Europe! The lane is well lit at night with security entrance and intercom. Our apartment is right in the heart of the CBD, with cafes, restaurants, bars, shopping, train and tram, 24 hour supermarkets, exceptional lane way off Flinders Lane that is reminiscent of Europe. The Melbourne Apartment is close to everything. Leave the car and walk to Melbourne's amazing attractions, theatres, the arts, South Bank, Casino, National Gallery of Victoria, Federation Square, shopping, bars and cafes. Nearby there is a supermarket, bottle shop, City Library, Flinders Street Station, Trams and more only a few steps away. Linen and towels are included and complimentary coffee and teas. FREE coffee for our guests having breakfast any day of the week at Cafe Mile. Menu is in apartment We love our little apartment, we know you will too. We expect our guests to be respectful and clean up as they find it! Thanks! One of our recent guests emailed her feedback: "I fell in love with this gorgeous apartment the moment I stepped into it. It was spacious and charming whilst low key and easy maintenance. It totally captured the lane way vibe of Melbourne. I was literally sad to leave it. Excellent kitchen and bathroom, romantic bedroom alcove. Fast internet. There is a fabulous restaurant and great bar right outside the front door. Karen, it was gorgeous, I felt like it was mine, my home. Even though I was obviously just visiting, it suited my style and taste perfectly." Dr. R.D. This is a whole apartment. I'm available via telephone or text.
Our Lane is a premier lane with high class cafes, restaurants and bars. It's well lit up at night and the laneway is friendly and funky. Trains are are only around 200 metres away. Trams are only 50 metres away. Tram straight to Queen Victoria Market for fresh produce and delicacies I love the proximity to transport and everything is within walking distance. We are in the free tram zone making jumping on and off trams, if you don't want to walk, a breeze.

$ 125 AUD Per night
Apartment is small but sunny and light, with a nice outlook. Surrounded by restaurants, bars and student cafes. Trams at doorstep, next to Melbourne Central railway station. Opposite State Library, close to main sports arenas and universities.
Close to the best of Melbourne: State Library, Federation Square, Victoria Art Gallery, MCG, Melbourne Park (Australian Open), Botanical Gardens, Melbourne University, RMIT, restaurants, cinemas, shopping. Small but adequate kitchenette. Surrounded by eateries of every variety. Coin washer and dryer available next to apartment. I will either meet you at the apartment, post you a keycard or leave it for you at reception if you are arriving during reception house. Apart from that, you'll be on your own.
Swanston Street is a hot spot for music and food. State Library forecourt is a great gathering place. Please note this is the central city so if you are seeking a quiet spot, this is not for you. Melbourne University and RMIT University a few minutes away. A Unilodge operates from the building but my apartment is separate. Trams and railway station at the doorstep. Tram travel around the central city is free. I will leave MYKI cards which you need to travel on trains or trams out of the city centre. You will need to load them up it's about $8 a day for all-day travel. Bicycles for hire across the road for a daily fee of $2.80. Heaps of attractions within a few minutes walk. From airport, take a taxi to the apartment (about $50), or catch the airport bus to the city and get them to drop you off near the intersection of Little Lonsdale and Swanston Street. If you're travelling by train, get off at Melbourne Central Station and look for the Swanston Street exit. There are ceiling fans but there is no air conditioner (it's a heritage building) so it does get hot after a succession of hot summer days. Melbourne can be very hot in summer. On the other hand, it can be mild. If you feel the heat, you might want to choose another place in summer.

It embodies a contemporary colour scheme which encourages a light-filled overall atmosphere. The bedroom and the living areas are fully carpeted, while the kitchen and bathroom are installed with complementary tiles.

The washer and dryer are neatly hidden in the laundry area along the entrance hall. Laundry liquid is also supplied. Even though the apartment is located in a busy neighbourhood, the double-glazed windows effectively block out city noise, which will allow for peaceful, uninterrupted sleep at night.

Southbank houses the Melbourne Arts Precinct which include the National Gallery of Victoria, Malthouse Theatre, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, and Hamer Hall, among all other venues where regular art shows and exhibitions are staged. They are all within just 10-20 minutes away by walking. Clarendon St is only a few minutes away where some of the local restaurants are situated. Crown Complex is right next door where various entertainment hotspots, bars, fine dining restaurants, fastfood shops, and clothing and fashion retail stores are found. For nature lovers, the stunning Royal Botanic Gardens is only 25 minutes away by walking. Being in there surrounded by various flora will definitely provide a quick and serene escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. The tram route 12, which goes directly to Melbourne CBD, is only 2 minutes away by walking. However, even just walking straight to the CBD will only take 15 minutes. The same tram line passes by Southern Cross Station where the Skybus to the airport is available. It is only five stops away. Moreover, the tram that goes to MCG or Rod Laver Arena is only three stops away. The Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex is right next to the building. While the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre is only 10 minutes away by walking. Trams within the Melbourne CBD are free. But, to take advantage of the experiences the most livable city has to offer, walking is the most advisable form of transportation. If you want to check in earlier, please message us first so that we can discuss what we can do to make it possible. There is no available car space within the building itself, but there are a lot of paid, secure parking within the area. The nearest one, the Crown Multilevel Parking, is just right next to the building. The bathroom essentials provided (toilet tissue, hand wash, shampoo, conditioner, and body wash) will only be enough to cover at least the first five nights for three guests.
