The original double garden room. An isolated wildlife paradise only 1 hour 15 mins from the centre of Melbourne. Use of pool and kitchen and gorgeous outdoor areas. Everyone loves it. Just read the reviews!
We live on 40 magnificently private acres on the Little Yarra River outside Yarra Junction in the Upper Yarra Valley with views to die for and tame kangaroos called Brynn and her baby, Rockin' Robyn. There are wonderful restaurants and wineries close by and gorgeous walks on the Yarra Trail (also on our property down to the river) Watch the horses grazing, pick from the fruit trees, play with the 2 golden retrievers (Gilbert and Sullivan) and cuddle with Felix the cat. I could imagine this as ideal for someone wishing to spend some time writing at their very own country retreat or visiting what is virtually a wildlife retreat. Ride bikes, go for breakfast, walk or spend time by the pool. Many people come intending to go off for the day and decide to stay here all day instead. During the day it is 100% quiet. In this area you need a car as there is no public transport. PS if you would like your own ensuite and the mountain view, instead of the garden, try the Wombat Room on Airbnb Guests have access to all amenities as required. Just ask. PS I have spare isolated paddocks for anyone wanting to bring their own horse. I know what it is like to go away and leave the 'friends' behind! We are flexible. Please tell us if you would like to be left alone, otherwise we are likely to offer cheese and wine.
We love our neighbourhood, because we have no close neighbours! It feels totally isolated with a vast view across the forest and mountains. Safeways is 5 minutes away if you need anything and Warburton is 10 min away. The Warburton trail is a gem and brings bikes! There is little public transport in the Yarra Valley. However, Hermann loves driving, so if you need a drive we are happy to arrange something for you. We know lots of people in the valley and can put you in touch with people to go rafting or biking or therapeutic massage. PS On this property we always carry a mobile phone wherever we go for safety. Please do likewise.

Spacious, open plan warehouse apartment, lovely furniture. Very spacious living and dining area, two loft bedrooms with queen size beds. Two bathrooms. Beautiful, sweeping city views. 2 min walk to Richmond station- 5 mins to the city.
Old heritage listed warehouse conversion. Large space, with beautiful city views. Watch the balloons fly by in the morning if you're an early riser. Luxury for 1 or 2 people, can take 4, but both bedrooms are large lofts to embrace the views. Undercover parking on request and a lazy 2 minute walk to Richmond station, which is one stop from the CBD. Where possible I will greet the guests upon arrival to hand over the key and meet again to collect the key at the end of their stay and check that all was well.
This bohemian neighbourhood is diverse with a great range of restaurants and one train stop or an easy walk to the City, major shopping centres, the botanical gardens and the river. Trains, trams, bikes to hire all within a couple of minutes. Please note there is no air conditioning in this apartment. There are large industrial fans and the air flow is usually good through the many windows. There are blinds, but I tend to live with them up - the views can be seen from everywhere.

Stunning chic city designer apartment walking distance from all the best Melbourne food and cultural icons. Award winning designer fit out and eclectic feel makes this the perfect city retreat.
Stay in my amazing designer warehouse conversion recently featured in the LA Times along with a host of other design magazines and winner of a Melbourne Design award for interior design!! My beautiful apartment is right in the heart of Melbourne's vibrant restaurant, bar and art gallery district. It's literally on one of Melbourne's famous lane ways - Flinders Lane - yet it is in a wonderful quiet and safe pocket where you can relax and take in all that Melbourne has to offer. Situated in what’s affectionately known as the ‘Paris End’ of Melbourne’s charismatic CBD, this large 1 bedroom warehouse conversion is the perfect place to come back to after a day of exploring the wonders of Melbourne. At the top end of Flinders Lane it’s near beautiful parklands and the funky suburbs of Fitzroy, Carlton and Collingwood. Located at the back of a 1940s converted warehouse, it faces onto a quiet laneway so you will be sure to get a good night’s rest with some peace and quiet. As you can see from the photos it’s very spacious (65sqm) and has 4.2m high ceilings and 2.5m high windows (that open up to let a beautiful breeze through). There is a separate bedroom with comfy queen bed. The apartment is suitable for 1-2 people, I do have an extra single futon bed which I am happy to set up in the lounge room for a 3rd person - please contact me first though. The apartment is spacious and relaxed with all that you will need for a fabulous stay. It’s really close to trams and trains and the share bike scheme recently introduced to Melbourne. You can also walk anywhere in the city as it’s very centrally located. You can also hire one of several GoGet cars from round the apartment to save on car hire. I provide MyKi cards for use on trams and trains and can also arrange bike hire for a small extra fee (please contact me about this). The apartment has unlimited wifi and internal laundry (washing machine and dryer) that you can use during your stay. The open plan kitchen is equipped with dishwasher, espresso machine, chef quality Miele induction cooktop and high quality cookware (I love to cook!). A bottle of wine will be awaiting your arrival and I pride myself on providing expert local advice on the best places to eat, drink and explore! Ask my anything - I'm here to help you have an amazing time in one of my favourite cities in the world! The queen size bedroom includes storage / hanging facilities. And of course fresh linen and towels are provided as well! There is a 32inch TV and DVD player is located in the lounge room with HDMI cable for streaming movies ect. The apartment is New York style open plan with a very cool designer rotating library dividing the spaces: it’s not a share place, you get the entire apartment to yourself! You can select from a meet and great or we can arrange a self checkin if that works better for your arrival times. I have prepared an extensive guide book of all the best food, coffee and drinks places close by so you get a locals recommendations on the cool Melbourne foodie scene. I'm also happy to answer any questions you have about things to see do etc - (check out my airbnb guidebook too)! The price listed is for one person per night; if you want to stay as a couple then it will be $25 extra per person per night. Please note that there is a minimum stay of 2 nights on Friday and Saturdays unless there are other bookings on either side. Please contact me first if you want to book for just one night to confirm that it’s OK. Apartment features: - free guest bike for getting around town (everyone rides in Melbourne!) - very close to absolutely EVERYTHING! - complimentary wine on arrival for most bookings - unlimited wifi - walks to trams, trains, cool suburbs - right near a big park (treasury gardens) - designer interior - espresso machine + fair trade tea / coffee all provided for your stay - induction cooking and fully equipped kitchen + cooking basics like olive oil, spices etc - HiFi system, TV, DVD player - washer and dryer - security entrance with easy checkin - iron, hair dryer, storage - extra bed on request - easy access to GoGet carshare and Bikshare schemes - bike hire can be arranged on request - myki cards for public transport use - easy to get to via skybus shuttle from the airport Please feel free to ask any questions! Sorry no photo shoots! (I get asked a lot!) The entire apartment is yours! We arrange the keys to be in a lockbox and provide you with all the access information before your stay so you can let yourself in whatever time you arrive! We are quick to respond to any of your questions and have developed an extensive local secrets guide to all the best places to eat and enjoy. I have a property manager who is on call 24/7 to help out if you need it, but otherwise we leave you to enjoy your stay.
Melbourne City is amazingly eclectic and vibrant. The apartment is located on the very cool 'Flinders Lane' in the Paris end of town. Its right next to some of Melbourne's best and hippest restaurants and bars! You will be walking distance to everything in town and there are a number of trams and trains to take you anywhere else outside of the city.
