Luxury and style. This apartment is incredible. The location is amazing and the light filled apartment is well presented with spectacular views! If you want to stay in St Kilda and experience all Melbourne has to offer, then this is it!
You're going to love our apartment.
For a start, when you arrive you'll be thrilled with the location. The laughing mouth of Luna Park, the grand old Palais Theatre, the the iconic Esplanade, St Kilda boardwalk, Jacka Blvd, Port Phillip Bay, and the historic sea baths are only part of what you get with your uninterrupted panoramic views.
The #96 and #16 (3a on the weekend) tram stops at your doorstep. Great when travelling to the city, shopping in Chapel St, going to the Grand Prix or heading over to the north to experience even more layers of Melbourne's rich culture.
While you are local in St Kilda, you won't get lost finding your way home. The Esplanade location of the architecturally significant 1960's apartment building with intercom access, lifts and optional off-street parking, is only a stones throw from the action end of Acland St with it's restaurants, bars, theatres, shopping, and local street artists. It's also only a short stroll to Fitzroy St where you can explore some of the more edgier experiences St Kilda offers. as well as some of Melbourne's finest dining establishments.
Our city getaway pad reflects us as a couple. Relaxed, welcoming, inclusive and typically Melbourne. The well appointed apartment with TV, WiFi, books, games, relics of local history, European laundry, spa bath balcony and heating/cooling unit will make you feel like you're home no matter the changing climate outside. Incredible views from the entire apartment, the sparkling bathroom is modern and clean and includes luxury Egyptian cotton towels, organic soaps and shampoos. It has double sinks and a spa bath.
You could eat out for every meal and not visit the same place twice, but if you decide to stay in and cook, maybe with some local produce from the farmers market (or with shopping at one of the local supermarkets) you'lI find the fully equipped kitchen will have everything you need.
In the bedroom, the queen size 4 poster bed has a romantic charm with a super comfortable eco bamboo mattress and high quality pillows and Sheridan bedding. The sofa in the lounge transforms into a 2nd comfortable bed with luxury linen and pillows if you're adding extra people to the booking.
The entire top floor getaway pad is yours to make yourself at home in.
The apartment includes: TV, WiFi, linen, laundry, soaps, towels, shampoo, hair dryer, washing machine, spa bath, cooking facilities, iron, ironing board, microwave, dishwasher, heating/air conditioning.

A dedicated off-street parking spot is available for $10 a day or $50 for the week.
We want you to have the getaway you want to have. We are experienced Airbnb hosts with another apartment in the building.
If you want to just slip in and out without any help from us then we are happy to organise intercom access and leave our number if you need anything.
Otherwise, we love to greet our guests and help to settle you in. We are happy to take you on a short local tour to help you get a lay of the land and customise your experience anyway we can.
St Kilda is eclectic, vibrant, fun and full of interesting people that is located right on our beautiful bay in Melbourne. In the hot weather you can enjoy the promenade and beaches by the water - across the road from the apartment.
We have Luna Park, the Palais Theatre and great live music venues literally around the corner or down the road.
You can find great food, drink and entertainment every day of the week and I will be super happy to help you maximise your experience of our wonderful neighbourhood!
Our apartment is close enough to be 1 min from the action of Ackland street without the noise associated with being on top of it.
The Sunday market is right outside your door. The Esplanade Market is a tradition in Melbourne.
During the summer months, the Thursday night market is only a few doors down the road which is also where you'll find all the restaurants, cafes, bars and supermarkets.
The Palais Theatre and TheatreWorks are both only a very short stroll, and is host to many international acts all year around.
The sea baths, the Fairy Penguin colony at the end of the historic St Kilda pier, the community gardens, parks and bike paths are close enough to be seen from your apartment and all of this is all only a short tram ride from Melbourne's CBD.
During the Grand Prix, we are only 5 tram stops from the main gate.
And during the St kilda festival, Australia's largest free outdoor music festival, you have prime position almost opposite the main stage.

If you're keen to head into the city you can easily jump on the #96 or #16 (#3a on the weekend) tram on The Esplanade and be there in 20 minutes. Coming in from the airport you have Taxi, Uber, Skybus + 96 Tram or FAPAS ( booked bus transfer directly to the corner of our road). We're easy to reach with lots of options.
The Melbourne transit system (trams, trains and buses) use the Myki system, be sure to buy your Myki card at 7-11.
The Melbourne Bike Share system is a quick 5 minute walk from the apartment, great for riding around the bay and into the city.
Dedicated off street parking is also available for $10 day or $50 for the week.
Thick blankets for extra warmth if you need it, can be found in the top of the wardrobe.
For light sleepers, the relatively light Melbourne traffic on the Esplanade can be distracting, and despite the double glazing on the bedroom windows we have left ear plugs in the bathroom if you need them, but most guests usually don't notice this once they settle in.
Extra bedding (up to 2 extra guests per night max) is $50p/n.
Cleaning fee - we expect the apartment to be left in a clean and tidy condition on check out. We bring in a cleaner after each check-out to disinfect and launder over all linen.
