  • Pedro made me feel like home . one of the nicest and most chilled out going. Room was clean, tidy and a brilliant view. Would absolutely use this private room and facilities again good work pedro

    Liam July 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!

    Jess August 2016
  • Pedro welcomed us in his appartement. His appartement is very clean and central and has a good connection to the Free trams.

    Sarah July 2016
  • Pedro made me feel very welcome. He is very friendly and a great host. I would recommend this room and will revisit myself if the need arises. The apartment was very clean and tidy, both the room and bathroom were very clean. It felt like a little hotel room.

  • The apartment was amazing! Great view plus facilities. Really enjoyed my stay and love how the apartment has everything I needed, very convenient. Wasn't able to meet Debbie/Carolyn personally though but that's alright. Glad to say that my very first airbnb experience was a great one. Thanks again for allowing us to stay in your apartment. Cheerious:)

    Natasha October 2015

    Michael August 2016

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.

Delightful NEW modern apartment close to the CBD
$ 101 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.
  • Karen has a lovely apparent which has everything you need and is conveniently located. The elevator is challenging but luckily enough the stairs also work. I would certainly recommend it though :)

    Anouk August 2016
  • Karen was very easy to communicate with and made sure we were looked after on our trip to Melbourne!

    Alyce July 2016
  • Great, individual flat placed right in the centre of Melbourne. Very useful for my final look around the place, didn't want to leave.

    Jamie July 2016
  • Our stay can be described nothing short of memorable and surreal. Karen made us feel very welcomed in her apartment, and the place felt very warm and hospitable. She has ensured that most of the needs of the occupants are well taken care of. We absolutely loved the decor of the apartment and the proximity from shops, pubs, eateries and station just added to the experience. Karen has been very timely and kind in all her communication and went out of the way to ensure we had the keys a few hours earlier as we were reaching Melbourne in the wee hours of the morning. Karen's warm hospitality and ensuring the occupants have a memorable stay are commendable and we will certainly be recommending this apartment to anyone needing a place when they visit Melbourne. Thank you Karen, for making our stay truly memorable and one that we will reminisce for years and years to come.

    Harsh October 2014
  • Karen is a nice host and help us a lot. Apartment is beautiful and clean.

    Sarah June 2015
  • Terrific and unique apartment. Centrally located, minutes walk to federation square and plenty of things to do near by. Would love to stay here again! Thanks Karen.

    Harry September 2015
  • We had a great stay in Karen's apartment - not only is the location great but the apartment is fitted out with everything you might need including helpful and current information about Melbourne. Karen gave me a great tour around when I arrived which meant I knew how everything worked and where it all was. Thanks for a lovely stay!

    Anna February 2014
  • This apartment was in the perfect location for exploring Melbourne. Couldn't fault the positioning at all! It was a good size for a couple, and had everything we needed. Clean and tidy too. Can be noisy at night though - but earplugs do the trick. Karen wasn't able to meet us but arranged for us to pick up the keys and store our bags at the restaurant downstairs. She was very helpful with questions that we had and responded to my communication very quickly. Next time we go to Melbourne we would definitely consider staying here again!
