Josie & Joe are very warm and welcoming. They have created a beautiful apartment in a beautiful area. It is close to the beach and cafes and public transport is practically on the doorstep. All up it makes for a very relaxing stay!

Were Joe & Josie welcoming hosts? YOU BETCHA! Warmth oozes from this lovely couple and this is reflected in the appointments of their Melbourne Beach Holiday Middle Park unit .... your temporary home. Does the listing truly reflect the unit? YOU BETCHA! ... but it's so much nicer being IN this gorgeous unit than just looking at the photograph. Being in, is so much better than, looking at. The artwork on the walls are all canvas enlargements of Joe & Josie's photography of Melbourne life and if they don't motivate you to see the real Melbourne nothing will ! Is the neighbourhood nice? YOU BETCHA! ... what's not to like ! Gorgeous Terraces, friendly people who smile and say G'day. From the unit you get a view of Port Phillip Bay to the left and the City Skyline to your right and at night (as you lay in the King Size bed with crisp white linen) you get to watch the city lights twinkle as you are lulled to sleep by the lapping water and the stealthy swish of a nearby tram gliding into the city or out to St Kilda. Am I going to stop reviewing now? YOU BETCHA! ... if I don't this unit will become so popular I won't be able to get another booking so I can 'Lose myself in Melbourne' all over again!

Our stay at Josie and Joe’s apartment in Middle Park was our first Airbnb experience and they have set the bar very high for our future experiences. The location alone is fantastic with easy access to the beach, shops, and trams. The apartment itself is tastefully appointed and cozy with all of the comforts of home. As a family of four travelling with two teens, there was enough room for everyone to spread out comfortably. Small details like the pile of board games in the bookcase helped create some memorable family moments during our stay. Josie, our amazing hostess, met us at the apartment at check-in and anticipated all of our needs and was ready with answers to our questions and suggestions for itineraries for our short stay. The basket of treats that she prepared for us was a pleasant and welcome surprise. During our time there, Josie was also easily accessible and quick to respond to our queries. The only drawback to our whole experience was not being able to spend more time with Josie and Joe themselves. It is obvious that they love sharing their apartment and are passionate about their city.

Wow! What a fabulous apartment. We fell in love as soon as we entered. Josie was extremely warm & friendly & very proud of their gorgeous space. It has been tastefully & lovingly refurbished. The kitchen is well equipped, even with a coffee maker & the pantry was stocked with food, for our use. Milk in the fridge, A bottle of wine & bowl of fruit to welcome us. Josie & Joe have made it a home away from home. Even washing powder in the laundry area. We were 3 ladies away for the weekend & they left 3 hats & 3 umbrellas & even 3 toothbrushes for our use. The beds are extremely comfortable. I had to shut the window at night as the trams are not far away. But there is fans left for our use, so it was very comfortable on the hot nights. There is a balcony off the second bedroom which is nice to sit on & enjoy the view. The area is very flat, so walking is easy & everything is just a short stroll away. We enjoyed morning & evening walks along the Bay. The surrounding homes are beautiful, so a walk along the street to the shops is great, taking in the local architecture. The tram stops around the corner so getting into Melbourne is very easy. Josie & Joe even left MYKI cards for our use, which we topped up for them, also plenty of information on the tram lines & interesting things to do are in the apartment. Thanks so much. I don't come to Melbourne often, but I will definitely stay there next time.

Joe and Josie were fantastic - accommodating, welcoming and going out of their way to make us feel at home, such as meeting us at 2am because of a late flight. The flat is great, located in a great area, with all amenities and transport nearby and the beach 50m away. The family really felt at home and we didn't want to leave. I cannot recommend this more highly, thanks Joe and Josie

All the best from Josie and Joe.

We are a family of four from Denmark who stayed 5 days at Josie and Joes apartment in Middle Park - and we loved every minut of it. The flat was in a great location, close to the beach and only a short walk from St. Kilda. The area was quiet and cosy with great cafes, a few restaurants and a great supermarket just around the corner. The apartment was spacious, very clean and had everything we needed - and a nice balcony with view to the ocean. And the beds were so comfortable, the best we had on our six weeks in Australia. Josie and Joe was there to welcome us when we arrived and they had bought lots of fruit, wine and breakfast for the next day - they were so sweet and made the stay really easy with a lot of good information about the area and Melbourne. We would love to come back and stay there again.

We believe it is very important to have super comfortable beds. We are also pleased that you liked our little section of Melbourne bordered by the sea, parks, St Kilda and the City. Thank you for choosing Melbourne Beach Holiday and for leaving our apartment so clean. We are glad that we could play a small part in making your holiday enjoyable. You and your family are welcome any time.

We are a husband and wife team who have called Melbourne home for life. We enjoy meeting new people and exploring new places but nothing pleases us more than returning to our family and friends in Melbourne.

Six things we can't live without:-
1. Each other.
2. Family & friends.
3. Morning coffee and a long, hot shower.
4. Long Sunday walks.
5. A dinner table full of laughter.
6. A camera to capture the moment.

Our favourite six spots in Melbourne.
1. The walk from StKilda to Port Melbourne beach.
2. Seawinds on the Mornington Peninsula.
3. The laneways of Melbourne.
4. Ripponlea Estate.
5. Yarra River walk.
6. The Royal Botanical Gardens.

We like to think that we have created a home away from home in the apartment we host on airbnb.
