The best location in town. Gertude’s apartment is a petite yet chic, 1 bedroom apartment suitable for 1-2 people that like sharing a queen size bed. It is an original shop-top apartment. Neat and clean simple living without the mod cons - no aircon. Located above Takeawei ceramics store on Gertrude St. in Fitzroy it’s the perfect place to put up your feet after a long day exploring Melbourne, with galleries, museum, shops, restaurants and bars all within walking distance or a tram at your door.

The space
The whole upstairs apartment is for your private use including kitchenette, shower, wc and one bedroom plus open plan lounge/dining and the cutest little back verandah. It’s a humble artsy apartment decked out with work by Australian artists and designers that will have you craving more time in Australia’s bohemian capital, Melbourne. Most pieces are for sale including artworks, ceramics and furniture, so if you find something you want to take home pop in and see the staff downstairs. The bedroom is on Gertrude street side so you will hear trams and general street noise. I sleep fine through the trams but some don’t so bring earplugs if noise bothers you. Please note the downstairs area is the back of the shop - please do not block this area as staff downstairs use this area. If you have bikes they can be stored on the apartment verandah upstairs. Please keep gate locked at all times.

Owner of Takeawei Ceramics, pottery teacher, I live on the surfcoast and have Gertrude’s apartment as a place I’d like to stay in when in Melbourne. I love handmade objects, art galleries, eating out, supporting local small business wherever I am.
