We stayed in Ruby's apartment for 3 nights in June and had a great time. The kitchen and apartment was well stocked with everything we needed and It was really easy to walk around the area to all the bars, cafes and restaurants. Overall a great place to stay in a great location and the electric blanket was a welcome surprise as Melbourne can cold in Winter.

Nicely renovated little unit but as Ruby lives here and her things are everywhere , especially a fridge full of food, we felt the price was too high compared to other places we have stayed that are not usually owner occupied. Close to city but there are so many to chose from also.

I'm a comms professional working full time M-F just across the gardens in Carlton, so check in times are flexible because I'm a short walk away from the apartment. Interested in baking, cinema, arts and crafts, gardening and the outdoors.
