Jo's place is absolutely amazing, it's bright, spacious and fitted out with beautiful furniture. You will have the perfect view of the city, which becomes spectacular at night, coupled with good use of lighting makes for A lovely night in. The location great, very close to the city, whilst being in the center of Richmond surrounded by lots of nice restaurants, bars and shopping. Jo was a pleasure to deal with, she went beyond the port of call for me, my partner and I both highly recommend Jo's place for the perfect weekend away.

What a beautiful little stay in this gorgeous warehouse apartment. The place is very cosy, has an excellent view, especially in the late afternoon light. We managed to even catch a storm one night which was spectacular! Its very close to shops, restaurants and public transport. Would definitely recommend!

Jo was a wonderful host! She let us check in at 6am which is quite rare and fit in perfect with our arrival time into Melbourne. The place itself is a slice of paradise and very enjoyable to just sit back and enjoy the high ceiling and open plan overlooking the city!

If you want a reliable, friendly and awesome host, Jo is the one. The room gets a lot of natural light, and you get a picturesque view of the rooftops of Richmond. The room was well-stocked, clean and trendy. Thank you Jo for an amazing stay!

My husband Pete and I renovated this amazing space and use it when we are in town. We live away from the city and I have my art studio in the other house. People who have places in the building love the position, the spaces and unique history of the area and this unique building and environment.
