A spacious old studio flat with own courtyard, at rear of the property, with separate entrance from back lane. Retro and global decor. A rarity in today's increasingly high rise Fitzroy. Once the stable of the 1885 house then 60s garage.
Fantastic location, 2 minutes from bars, cafes and shops of vibrant bohemian Brunswick Street, Fitzroy, trams to the city and beyond at your doorstep.
This is Fitzroy in its bohemian heyday.
If you want to experience what once was - this is the house for you.

The space

The studio has a queen size bed. A single bed can be made up. The 3 seater chesterfield sofa (1950s) is a very comfortable extra bed. The space is heated with 2 good quality ceramic tower heaters.
It has a kitchenette and a small toilet and shower. The garden area gets direct midday sun.

Guest access

There is one free parking spot at the front of the house. Guest should give me notice if they wish to use this space so it can be reserved for them. Please don't assume that it is automatically available.

Interaction with guests

I may not be around all the time but am always available to help with any issues

Other things to note

This property is in the middle of alternative Melbourne - or a walk or tram ride away - depending on what you are looking for. This area has it all.
This is a sustainable ethical eco household. No chemicals are used in cleaning. Some bedding may be not new but it IS CLEAN.
Please DO NOT confuse old with dirty. Especially if you are using uncleanliness as a reason for total refund.
Harry the cat does not live in the studio but he may say hello sometimes.

The place is exactly as described, and what reviewers have said- the location is excellent, the fitout is oldish (?) and has character, is kitsch, eco conscious, clean, and inviting. It's in a laneway, so close but secluded and own private garden. Facilities are basic but enough. I had several questions and a parking problem and Peter was responsive and helpful each time.

We enjoyed our stay in Fitzroy & the description of the accomm is honest & reflected in the value. No frills but all you need. Walk to restaurants etc.

Location is brilliant! Walking distance to all the amazing restaurants! The space is cute, also being an eco home is something more Airbnb hosts should encourage. Peter was always quick to get back to me and we were both happy with our stay - even in 4 degree nights

Tidy, no fuss accomm and a great location if you like to stay around the uber cool Fitzroy area when you visit Melbourne. Cool vibe but wouldn't recommend staying for more than 2-3 days as it's pretty basic, found it to be a bit dark/chilly but we stayed in mid-winter. In terms of privacy and convenience, it was top tier. This is a BYO toiletries Airbnb (soap, hair stuff, toothpaste, etc.)

Great place to stay in Melbourne. The kooky art and rad vintage fit was so much fun. Close to trams coffee and so much food.
