The shower does not have a shower screen so as to make the bathroom feel bigger. There is a bath in the living space.

Ben's place is in the perfect location, right near everything Fitzroy has to offer but tucked away at the back of the unit offering complete peace and quiet. Luxury fixtures and fittings - the bed and linen are out of this world. If you want something a bit different, completely unique and right in the heart of the action then this is the place to stay. We can't wait to come back.

Ben's place was in the perfect location in Fitzroy, in the heart of it all and still away from the hustle and bustle. His innovative style and taste were very inspiring but sometimes at the expense of functionality. A solution to bathroom flooding from the shower and a curtain over the window would go a long way. All in all though, we had a great stay.

I booked this retreat on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). There was no listing of the check in and check out times, so I messaged Ben. Sometimes he was prompt to reply. Sometimes if was a few days later. My booking with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) was cancelled, twice. I contacted Ben to find out he doesn't use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) - only air BnB. All rather frustrating so I suggested Ben remove the listing from (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), which he did. Once I booked through air BnB everything was straightforward. The retreat is great. We loved the area. The hot water only allowed for one shower & to fill the bath 1/3 of the way though which was a shame. The pivot door is gorgeous but if you love a sleep in, its too bright for that. Overall the place has a great feel and we definitely had a wonderful stay.

Bens place is a beautifully designed and decorated place in a great location. As with any signature place, there has been a compromise of "form over function" in some aspects. If you want a sleep in, I recommend an eye mask. Ben was a great host who communicated well and was very accommodating

The propertys location is central to great brekky bars and the city, however although you are central, you feel as though you are tucked away from the hustle and bustle!
