  • I've been staying with pedro 3 days a week for the last month for work. He has been a great host and the location is great for everything in melbourne.

  • Everything is very good and Pedro is very nice, the night view is extremely beautiful.

    Mandy August 2016
  • The best airbnb experience (URL HIDDEN) start with the house and interior is even better then shown in pics...the location is amazing, within 2 mins walk you can take a free tram and roam around the CBD and shopping arena including DFO and cover most of the point of interests for free... plus you get a nice view from the balcony. Now about the host...the best host il ever come across...right from picking up from the port at 6 am in the morning to preparing breakfast and dinner almost daily...and also took the time to take me to some places in Melbourne to visit...interesting person to converse with...will help you with anything and everything... If you are looking for a stay in Melbourne...look no me this is the best place you can be...

    Samar August 2016
  • My stay at Pedro's was excellent, the bed is comfortable, the apartment is tidy and the host is a delight. Even though he had come home late (quietly), Pedro was still up preparing breakfast at 6am whilst I was showering. An all round positive experience.

    Andrew July 2016
  • Pedro welcomed us in his appartement. His appartement is very clean and central and has a good connection to the Free trams. He cooked a few times for us and we had dinner together and had nice chats. He explained us how to get around and was very friendly. He made us feel at home. Thank you again Pedro!

    Sarah July 2016
  • good

    Cheryl August 2016
  • My sister and me stayed just 3 days and we had a wonderful time at pedros apartment. It was really clean and comfortable. I can absolutely recommend it. Pedro even drove us at 5 am to southern cross train station that don't miss our bus. Thanks so much for the great time and hosting!!!

    Nina August 2016
  • Pedro was a very friendly and welcoming host. The apartment was very easy to get to: skybus followed by the free tram (86) to stop D2. The apartment has fantastic views, was very clean and just a short free tram ride away from all of Melbourne's attractions. We made use of the pool/jacuzzi/gym facilities during our stay which was an added bonus! Pedro made us feel very welcome into his home and showed us around the city the first day. The breakfast in the morning was lovely and there was so much of it too! One evening Pedro cooked an evening meal for us which was also delicious! This is such brilliant value for money, we expected only the room for the price as that is what our previous Airbnb experience was like. The added guidance, breakfasts and dinner was brilliant!! Should we return to Melbourne we would definitely stay here again!

  • The apartment was fantastic, couldn't have picked a better spot, 2 mins walk from the Domain Interchange tram stop that went every few minutes into the city and then down to Saint Kilda as well. The apartment was clean, modern, and had everything we need. We were lucky enough to stay over new years and had front row seats all night to the fireworks from the amazing rooftop area. Would definitely stay again!

    Rachel January 2016
  • Great Host, awesome new apartment. Some confusion with the host about details in emails, but turns out it was all a non-issue. Awesome place - as expected. Would recommend as great value for money.

    Jeffrey July 2015
  • It was perfect! Debbie although we didn't meet, communicated every step of the way with detailed information. Our original flights were cancelled and therefore arrived much earlier than expected but we were able to have early access! The unit itself is central to everything, and it was as described! Loved it, loved Melbourne! Thanks Debbie, will definitely come again!

    Jinene May 2016
  • Didn't meet Debbie but she was a fantastic host: accommodating and understanding when we had to change dates, gave us a late check out. The place itself was clean with most things needed to have a home away from home. Convenient location to get into the CBD and IGA meters from apartment. Would recommend.

    Hien March 2016
  • Lovely little apartment in a quiet location. Short walk to the Domain Interchange which takes you to the city and St Kilda to name a few. The apartment is quiet small but modern with pretty much everything you need (fridge, lounge, TV, washer and dryer. Must make mention of one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept on. :) Make sure you make a visit to the top deck to watch the sun set and rise.

    Julia February 2016
  • All information and details given by Debbie were helpful and accurate. The apartment was ideally located for what we wanted and the Myki cards were a great bonus. The compact apartment was tastefully appointed and spotlessly clean. We had a positive first time AirBnB experience.

    Paul April 2016
  • We loved our stay in Debbie's apartment. Debbie had thought of everything! Even providing umbrellas. It is in an ideal location close to public transport , cafes and restaurants. Thanks Debbie for letting us leave our luggage in the apartment the day we were leaving ! We had a great time and can recommend Debbie's apartment for a city stay. Regards Ros

  • Edgar is a friendly man, he knows how to fulfill someone's needs and I'm very enjoyed to stay at his house. His place is cosy and clean so you are not worry the hygiene issues. It's a pity Edgar was not home for a few days after he passed me the key. Anyway, you should have a try if you are looking for a good place in Melbourne.

    Kar Wai April 2016
  • Very happy to spend my holidays in this place . Convenient location , Comfortable environment , Friendly landlord .

    Yenting April 2016
  • I had a fantastic stay at Edgar's! The apartment is clean and reasonably spacious, the bathroom was excellent and the view over the river is absolutely stunning! Edgar had done everything to make sure that I'd feel right at home and was happy to help with any and everything from laundry and cooking to sightseeing tips and general small talk. He really cares about his visitors and does everything to make sure that they have a good stay - all without being pushy! Edgar as a host is a total 5/5 and the apartment is fantastic too both in terms of location, cleanliness and amenities (there was no wifi when I was there but Edgar said that he was going to have it installed soon so this should not be an issue for future visits). The only note I'd make is that it is close to the railway where a lot of trains pass by in the morning (not during the night) so if you're a very light sleeper and you plan on sleeping in, this may bother you. Personally it didn't bother me though. TL;DR: Edgar is great and so is the apartment. 10/10 would stay there again:)

    Esben February 2016
  • The host made me feel welcome during my stay in Melbourne. He constantly ask me if I have any queries / issues during my stay there. As soon as i arrived Melbourne, he briefed me on basic description about the room - my bed, fridge, bathroom, kitchen etc. The room is clean and fully furnished. I love the view from the room - facing Crown Casino, Batman park, Crown Plaza, Yarra River and so on. It is so convenient as it is not far from Southern Cross Station and you can get some food close to the apartment - 7 eleven , Kebab shops, Pizza etc. I would like to stay longer if i have any future opportunity. Would love to stay there again in the future

    Hazman April 2016
  • amazing experience. The flat is very modern, high floor with river view. Bed is isolated so you will have privacy. Very clean bathroom with washing machine. Tram stop is 10 meters away from the lobby and it is in free tram soon. super fast wifi and great host. He made me yummy curry for dinner too.

    Andy March 2016
  • Edgar's place is an absolute gem in the city's CBD. The location could not be anymore central and convenient to all major transportation hubs. His place is very clean, comfortable and luckily for me private as he was away the whole time I was in Melbourne. Edgar's communications back and forth with me prior to my arrival were always quick and responsive. He was very accommodating and answered any questions I had. Would stay at his place again and hopefully next time spend more time with Edgar.

    Jacob March 2016
  • je n'ai pas rencontré personnellement edgar mais j'ai pu récupérer les clegs par une autre personne qui a pris le temps de m'expliquer comment ca fonctionne et je tiens à remercier encore une fois edgar de me laisser chez lui jusqu'à 21h00 ou 09:00 pm

The apartment has just been repainted and refurnished with new bed/bedding. Presents like new. Love the central location within short walk of both train stations and one block from Bourke street mall. A cosy quiet space as home base, for a CBD break. Bars,cafes,restaurants,cinema, casino, Fed Square all a short walk or tram ride away from this central location.
  • Perfect little nook, quiet, relaxing, just what we wanted!

    Katie August 2016
  • If you are planning for Melbourne trip for the first time, I would recommend this place. Very simple but comfortable studio just as Tom has described. Excellent location, just a minute walk from great brunch cafes and close to attractions to visit in CBD.

    Andy January 2016
  • It was a very nice and cozy loft located in central Melbourne. Perfectly walking distance to everything in the CBD. Highly recommended.

    Yin April 2016
  • The place was adorable ! It was neat and clean and Tom was there to greet us and show us around. Location is so convenient - only a short 5 minute walk to the heart of the city. Tom was also flexible with check out times and left us a bowl of complimentary chocolates, which we devoured :D

    Emily March 2016
  • Great host and great location, a bit noisy though and stuffy if you don't open the window (which you can't due to the noise). Still a nice place.

    Simon May 2016
  • Tom was a very friendly and accommodating host. Although unfortunately we did not meet in person due to a late arrival time, he gave clear instructions for accessing the flat. Tom was communicative throughout our stay, the loft was exactly as expected and suited our needs perfectly. It is centrally located, clean and quiet. Thank you Tom for a lovely Melbourne experience!

    Claire June 2016
  • Lovely, clean & central apartment with everything you need to make the most of being in the city. Tom was very helpful and punctual. I'd happily recommend this delightful little loft and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again

    Beckie April 2016
  • Perfect location! Tom was also lovely when we met him. Just off the main streets in the CBD so it's close to everything but quiet enough to feel like a little escape from all the city commotion.

New York Loft Style in CBD
$ 103 AUD Per night
Funky! Heritage Listed in the heart of the fabulous Melbourne CBD. Best location, & Melbourne City Council premier Lane-Way. Classy cafes & restaurants. You will think you are in Europe. NEW!! HIGHSPEED Internet NO DOWNLOAD OR UPLOAD LIMIT
I've been hosting for three years and have prided myself on providing a wonderful guest experience in Melbourne. I have owned my little part of Melbourne for 15 years now and wouldn't trade it for the world. It's just the perfect location! 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. It's a quirky homely environment with lots of character, not a hotel, so if you are the sort of person where everything has to be perfect, maybe its not for you! But if you like personality combined with comfort then we think we have it just right. Unfortunately the apartment and building is not wheel chair or walker friendly, being an "over a century" old building with 6 steps in the entrance foyer. You will cope though, with our complimentary little shopping trolley if you decide to splash-out at any of our amazing boutiques, or patisseries. The apartment is 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. There is a sofa bed for a friend sharing the apartment with yourself. So you don't have to bunk together (always a bonus!) 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 (which have been professionally laundered), 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.
  • Great posi in a clean and cosi pad...perfect for my inner city stay!

    Aimee July 2016
  • Was a great apartment. The location is great would stay here again anytime.

    Jason November 2013
  • Karens apartment is very comfortable and in a fantastic location. The owners of the cafe downstairs treated us like long lost friends. Communication was prompt and friendly. We would highly recommend this apartment for an inner city Melbourne experience.

    Naomi March 2014
  • The location of Karen's flat is amazing, safe and close to everything. The flat is clean and compact and has everything you would need plus lots of storage space for your things. The only downside is the late night noise from trams and dumpsters being emptied throughout the night but you get used to it after a few days. Karen is extremely responsive and helpful as well!

    shawna August 2013
  • If you're looking for a comfortable flat right in the centre of buzzy Melbourne, then this is the one for you! That means that it's a bit noisy at night and early in the morning, but hey, what do you expect from a Torquay window? Although it's small (and a bit squashy if you're two people and NOT sharing the comfy double bed; the fold-out futon was also very comfortable, however), it has everything you could possibly need. It's very clean, cute and cosy, the bathroom is terrific, the free Wi-Fi is fast, the kitchen is wonderfully equipped for cooking at home (all that stuff you feel compelled to buy from Victoria Markets!). We didn't bother with the large screen TV and DVD player because there is just so much to see and do right outside the door, including your own personal coffee shop and wine bar on the doorstep, where the wonderful Carmen is on hand to offer keys and advice when Karen can't be there. Why would you go to a soulless serviced apartment when you can have something like this for less money, that actually makes you feel like a Melbourne local in your home away from home?

    Georgina September 2013
  • Karen's apartment was in an amazing location and felt like a home away from home. It was very cosy and had everything we needed. Karen was great to deal with and always replied promptly.

    Anne January 2016
  • The place was awesome. If you are looking for a true "Melbourne" experience just like the locals, then sign up for this contemporary, in-the-heart-of-it-all apartment. I felt like I lived in the heart of the city, with the locals.

    Jay May 2015
  • The apartment is in a great location. safe & quiet. We had a great time being able to enjoy the experience of Melbourne because of this. Many Cafes to choose from public tradition is close by.
