No smoking and respect for other residents in the building is paramount. Noise late at night is not allowed. As a much loved space we ask you care for everything in the apartment too!

Love babies and children but unfortunately we cannot accept them staying too.

You will find the apartment very clean and very comfortable. All we ask is that you leave it in the similar condition.
Some of our belongings are in the apartment as it is my home when I am there. I expect that my belongings will not be interfered, moved or otherwise rearranged. Feel free to read books in the bookshelves, but again take care of them.

On your departure please take all personal items including toiletries and perishable goods. You can leave in a bag outside the apartment door.

Please respect my neighbours by keeping late night noise to a minimum.
Strictly NO parties and NO more than 2 people staying in the apartment.

And again, strictly no smoking. If you smoke best not book at all. PLEASE NOTE THAT WE WILL NOT ACCEPT ANYONE WHO HAS NOT FILLED IN THEIR PERSONAL PROFILE PROPERLY.

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!

Jo is so nice. She prepared almost everything for us. A lot of cooking staff and food. You can cook for yourself. Two trans cards. It's close to Richmond station, so convenient! And the apartment, it's just as same as the photos! Very stylish and beautiful! The view is amazing, you can see the whole city from here. The sunrise and sunset is incredible! The bed is soft. The bathroom is clean. Anyway, if I will come to Melbourne again, definitely will stay at Jo's house! 这个公寓很大,距离市中心只有一站地,而且下了Richmond站两分钟到家,非常方便。周围还有各种公交,swan street离得很近,非常热闹! 这里的风景无敌了,日出日落绝美。而且因为是住宅区,更能体验当地人的生活,来了你就知道了。 房东人很好,厨具样样都有,还有很多调料,甚至还有电饭煲和中国酱油,简直是奇迹,吃不惯西餐的就自己做。 房间真的和照片一模一样,太美了,很有设计感,希望自己能有这样一套房子,哈哈,下次来一定还住这里!

As advertised , Jo's unit is immaculate. Just respect that the place isn't yours and are fortunate you are staying in such a rad place. My wife and I loved our stay and would recommend Jo's unit to anyone who values style, cleanliness and a top location close to everything

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.
