It is very clean and private. I have another bedroom as well with their own bathroom so if you would like to book both please contact me for a special rate. Guest AccessYou have access to the kitchen to prepare breakfast and light meals but there are so many options around the area you will probably be out exploring most of the time. There is a bicycle you can borrow to ride down to the beach and either head to St Kilda only a few kms away or head in the other direction to see the famous Brighton Bathing Boxes. Interaction with GuestsQuite a lot of the time we are out but when home, we can mix with you or you can remain in your own private space if you wish. The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood is in close proximity to shops, restaurants and bars in Elsternwick, Brighton, Gardenvale, Glenhuntly, Malvern and Elwood.

There is a night bus that stops a few blocks away that leaves the city to Frankston every hour and trains are nightly now as well so there are plenty of public transport options. Other Things to NoteIf you wish to ride a bike, I have a hybrid bike that is available to ride and there are plenty of bike tracks around.

    The SpaceAn award winning architecturally designed space atop a heritage building in central city Melbourne. There are great views from the living area across a plaza and the adjacent heritage buildings. A balconette opens off the living area with French doors to take advantage of the breeze and the views - Help yourself to the scented flowering herbs, perfect for baking savoury scones, muffins and for sauces. Huge picture windows allow maximum winter sunlight to play into the room so you can breakfast in the reflected sunlight on a clear day. Guests are offered a cosy, clean and bright apartment with a very comfortable and contemporary four poster bed. I will be happy to make suggestions and recommendations on what to see and where to go in the city, and assist with any information you need. The apartment is a short distance from many of Melbourne's famous venues including Vue Restaurant, the Lui Bar, Bourke St shopping mall and much more. The apartment is brilliantly located to take advantage of all that central Melbourne has to offer with public transport options a 2 minute walk away. Its a very short walk (3 minutes) down Little Collins Street to Elizabeth Street shopping and cafes and the other direction will take you to Melbourne's main transport hub, Southern Cross Station - a 15-20 minute walk or short taxi ride. In the building there is an elevator to Level 4 and then a staircase up to the apartment on Level 5. Guest AccessGuests have their own bedroom with double bed and large built-in robes. You will have access to all facilities in the living area, kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities. There is shampoo, body wash, bath towels, and a hair dryer provided for your use. Interaction with GuestsMyself and my partner stay around the corner and are usually available for any guests needs. Just ask and we will be glad to help you! Your privacy will be respected. We will need to visit the apartment daily to water plants. The NeighborhoodThe apartment is in central Melbourne which is renowned for its bars, restaurants and shopping. I can recommend everything from a delicious pizzeria, the best coffee in Melbourne and much more within a few minutes walk. A short tram ride away is the Queen Victoria Market for a huge range of clothing, gifts, cheeses, meats, other deli items, fruit and vegetables at low prices. Getting AroundTrams are two minutes walk away, and Melbourne's two main railway hubs are within 10-15 minutes walk. The central city of Melbourne is easily walk-able with no need for a car. Bicycles can also be hired from a depot close by and are a convenient way to see the inner city. Other Things to NotePlease let me know as soon as possible if you decide not to go ahead with a booking because the room is in demand due to its inner city location. The apartment is not suitable for children below 6. Luggage storage is available for a small fee at Travellers Aid, Flinders Street station until 8pm or for a higher fee at Southern Cross Station, 24 hours. Guests staying in January 2017 please note that there may be construction noise generated by works to the plaza next door.

    The SpaceWelcome to Melbourne!!! I bought my dream home last year and wanted to share it with the Airbnb community! The large double room with queen size bed is in this distinctive light filled architecturally designed townhouse. The difference is apparent, the appeal is immediate. Curved contours and polished concrete floors complement an entrance foyer that sets the style agenda for inviting downstairs spaces including two double bedrooms, each enjoying the benefits of an effective light well, both served by a downstairs bathroom with Balinese style sunken shower. Upstairs, northern light, polished floorboards and reverse cycle heating/cooling enhance generous living/dining areas accompanied by a spacious open plan kitchen and powder room. A sunny study space appreciates a zone all of its own while a substantial north facing terrace with outdoor heater creates the ideal context for entertaining with the Richmond streetscape, and a glimpse of the city, providing a superb backdrop. The famous and very trendy Bridge Rd shops, cafes and restaurants are only 100 meters away with direct access to the city, St kilda or Fitzroy by tram also only a moments walk. If you wanted to visit the Australian Open tennis, the Botanical gardens or any event in the CBD, you can either walk or take the tram and arrive in minutes. This really is the most convenient place in Melbourne to stay while visiting as everything is literally at your doorstep. If you have any questions about the space please feel free to drop me a line. I look forward to meeting you! Guest AccessYou will have full use of the house including the washer dryer, outdoor entertaining area with deck, kitchen facilities and bathroom. Interaction with GuestsI love providing tips and recommendation on the things l love most about Melbourne. I am around if you are up for a chat but the house is certainly big enough that you have your own privacy and freedom as well. The NeighborhoodRichmond has more bars, restaurants and cafes than you could possibly eat or drink at. Public transport is so close an you can literally get anywhere in Melbourne in one connection or less. Getting AroundTransport here is as good as anywhere in Melbourne. Other Things to NoteI have travelled extensively and speak a little Spanish so would welcome visitors from any country and would love to touch up on some Spanish when possible

    The SpaceYou're located in the very heart of Melbourne, so the finest restaurants, museums and theaters are all only a few minutes walk away. The studio is self contained and all my guests feel right at home as soon as they close the door. Enjoy :) Wireless Internet is included free of charge. This modest sized Studio is located on the 11th floor of the Lonsdale Heights Apartment building, which occupies the same space as the Hotel Grand Chancellor which was built in 1970. It's fully furnished with bedding and furniture. Includes 42" LCD TV/Bluray which has USB/HDMI inputs. Separate Bathroom also includes washer/dryer/toilet/shower and sink. Kitchenette includes Hot Plate, Microwave, Toaster and full size Fridge. It's not a large kitchen, just a bench on which to do basic cooking. Building security is excellent, with two security access doors downstairs and double locks on the studio itself. Located in the heart of Melbourne with virtually everything at your fingertips. Chinatown is a 30 second walk behind the building. Countless restaurants are within a 5 minute walking distance, as are numerous Theatres and Cinemas. All forms of public transport are within a 1 minute walk from the Studio and the SkyBus (which takes you directly to/from the Airport) stops right in front. Just down Lonsdale Street (if you turn left and walk down a hundred metres) you'll find the QV Building which contains BIG W, Woolworths and Harvey Norman (for all your food/clothing/electronics items), as well as 120 other shops. It's basically a shopping mall in a building. You will find everything you need there, food, clothing, technology etc. There's dine-in restaurants, as well as numerous take-away places. Make sure you spend some time checking out QV. Heated Rooftop pool, located on the 17th floor with spectacular 360* views of the city and our amazing buildings, the Dandenong Ranges and an ocean view (yes, it's barely visible between 2 skyscrapers - but it's still a view!!) The studio itself is cosy and neat. Most of the furniture is less than a year old and in good condition. There's a Microwave, Hotplate, Fridge/Freezer, Toaster, Kettle, Coffee Machine in the kitchen. Full range of cutlery and cooking utensils. Complete Washing Machine & Dryer in the bathroom. Iron & Ironing board, vacuum cleaner. Plenty of spare sheets and towels. There's also a 42" LED TV with 2 Bluray players as well as USB/HDMI inputs. There is car parking available inside the building, but it's quite expensive, so I'd suggest parking at JM Car Park across the road at the church. It's $8 per evening and $15 during the day. You can leave your car there for days at a time, so just tell them what you need and they will price accordingly. There's storage space for you bicycle/bike on the 1st level of the CarPark in the building. I try and respond within the hour to all messages I get. I always greet guests at my studio and give a full tour of the building, the studio itself, the heated pool on the roof and all the fire exits, extinguishers etc. I welcome communication and feedback. You can contact me via Airbnb, phone or email. All forms of public transport are at your finger tips. There's a bus stop right out front. All major trams are within a few minutes walk. Parliament train station is a 4 minute walk. Flinders Street Station is about 10 minutes walk. If you're coming from the airport you can catch a Skybus to Southern Cross Train Station, and from there catch the SkyBus Hotel Shuttle to Grand Chancellor Hotel. Taxis are always around, you can just walk to the street and hail one. If you're interested in sight seeing, there's a RedBus that does a tour of Melbourne CBD that departs from the church at Flinders Street Station. For day tours/trips head down to Swanston St and you'll find plenty of places to book. Guest AccessHeated Rooftop pool, WIFI, kitchenette, laundry, TV, Bluray/DVD player, amazing rooftop views. Your own private oasis! Interaction with GuestsI'm a good communicator and generally respond within the hour to all messages (except when I'm asleep!). I live next door to the studio , so I'm always available if you have any questions or need assistance. The NeighborhoodMelbourne is a charming city, with amazing culture, restaurants, theatres and natural beauty. You're in the heart of the city and all this and more is at your fingertips. Enjoy! The best markets in Melbourne: The most famous market in Melbourne is indisputably the Queen Victoria Market (known affectionately by locals as Queen Vic or Vic Market), located in the heart of inner-city Melbourne. This historic and labyrinthine landmark is open five days a week (Tuesday, Thursday and Friday–Sunday) and caters for everyone from tourist to foodie alike. South Melbourne Market has the honour of being the oldest market in Melbourne to have operated continuously since its inception in 1867. With over 150 stalls ranging from fresh produce to fashion and more, South Melbourne Market also plays host to a range of both upcoming and established designers in SO:ME Space, with a rotating roster of pop-up stalls dedicated to design. For the art-and-design lover, the Rose St. Artists’ Market nestled in hip Fitzroy is the place to see and be seen at on the weekend. If you get hungry – or thirsty – you can head up to the rooftop for delicious dining and craft beers at Young Bloods Diner. In the warmer months, fashionistas can get their fix at the Rag Trade & Recycle Market in Collingwood, an area famous for fashion and textiles. This market offers a forum for new and upcoming fashion designers, as well as a way to recycle vintage and second-hand clothing. Bibliophiles will find their idea of heaven in the unlikely surrounds of Federation Square, the largest weekly Saturday book market in Melbourne. Home to some of the most experienced book dealers around, this market offers thousands of new and second-hand titles and also plays host to authors and illustrators looking to ply their trade. Fresh food Melbourne is also home to Australia’s oldest continuously operating growers market, located in Prahran. Established in 1864, Prahran Market is mecca for Melbourne foodies and offers heirloom produce, cheeses, smallgoods, artisan products, certified organic fruits and veggies, as well as fresh meats – including game. This list is just the start of the many amazing and unique markets in Melbourne. Happy shopping! Getting AroundAll forms of public transport at your fingertips. Trains, trams, buses and taxis. You're in the heart of the city! Car parking is available at JM Parking across the road. $15 during the day, and $8 overnight. You catch a Skybus from the airport into Southern Cross station in the city, then catch a tram up to corner of Russell and Bourke St - Get off the tram and then walk north along Russell Street till you get to Lonsdale Street, then turn East into Lonsdale St then walk halfway up Lonsdale St till you can see the church on the other side of the road.. and you're here! Other Things to NoteWhen you check out - please place used linen and towels on the bathroom floor or on top of the washing machine, and when possible please leave the as you found it when checking in. Please remember to turn off the TV + Heater when you check out. Mistakes happen, so don't panic if something breaks! But please do let me know ASAP so I can fix it.

    The SpaceMy apartment is surprisingly large for inner city apartments & with the combination of the outdoor courtyard to feel the sunshine on your face in the mornings, I think it's a great place to be. It's unbelievably quiet, in a residential building but has immediate access to cafes, restaurants, bars, shops, bush, public transport right at your door. We've designed the interior ourselves with careful consideration to the creature comforts that make all the difference to your stay. Guest AccessMy locals tips on my favourite spots in the area. One of things I love about airbnb is that it gives you the opportunity to experience a city as a local. In amongst the best neighbourhood (Collingwood / Fitzroy), you've got access to the best that Melbourne has to offer & when I'm traveling abroad, I really value the hosts recommendations on where to go, so I hope you do too! I also leave myki cards for guests to use for the Melbourne public transport system which saves guests having to fork out $7 just to obtain a card so all you need to do is top up the ones I leave for you. Too easy! :-) Interaction with GuestsI'm available by email, phone or text for as often or as little as you need. I live just around the corner so can be at the apartment in a jiffy if needed. I'm happy to answer any questions before, during or after your stay to make your stay at my apartment more comfortable. The NeighborhoodTHE NEIGHBOURHOOD: Collingwood / Fitzroy: Take a short walk to explore local hip neighbourhoods and streets around these iconic areas (Brunswick street, Johnston street, Gertrude street and Smith Street) for amazing local eateries, bars, shopping, markets, graffiti and street art. Getting to grips with this microcosm of the best bits of Fitzroy / Collingwood is equal parts time consuming and rewarding. Abbotsford: One of Melbourne's best kept secrets - tucked away behind the serenity of the Yarra River and parkland, yet with easy access to everything by foot, bike, train or taxi. Featuring the historic Abbotsford Convent building and gardens, which hosts farmers markets, night markets, an open air cinema, bar and more. You'll find some great restaurants here as well, including a pay-as-you-feel restaurant called ‘Lentil as Anything There's also an artesian bakery that uses an original oven from 1901 to bake seriously great wood fired bread daily! Take the walking tracks behind the convent beside the Yarra river, past the community garden and through the Collingwood children's farm. The farm not only has one of Melbourne's best cafés on offer, you'll see cows, sheep, goats and ponies, you will feel like you're in the Australian countryside, yet it's only a few kilometres from the CBD! For a taste of something more exotic head just down the road to Victoria Street where you can find many different Asian cuisines, most famous for great Vietnamese restaurants, however you'll also find some great gastropubs and bars here too. Richmond: Bridge Road (once famous for discount shopping, now known more for cafes and restaurants) is a few blocks away (2 train stops) as is Swan Street (the grungier side of Richmond with great pubs, cool bars, live gigs and sports fans from the sport precinct). For sports enthusiasts it's only a five minute train ride to the famous MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground) where you can catch an Aussie Rules Football match in Winter, or the cricket in Summer. Also in the sport precinct are AAMI Park, the Melbourne Tennis Centre (the world famous Australian Tennis Open is held each year throughout January) and Olympic Park - hosting almost every sport you can imagine between them. Needless to say we have loads of great places to recommend. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask. Getting AroundWe have secure under cover parking available for all guests (Maximum height 1.8 metres) 109 tram almost directly outside the front door that takes you to the CBD (10 mins) and St Kilda North Richmond train station approx 150 metres from the front door that can get you to the city in just 7 minutes. There is no shortage of public transport that can take you to almost anywhere you'd like to go in this wonderful city of Melbourne. There are also beautiful bicycle & walking tracks close by that run along the Yarra River so although you're in the inner city, you can access the bush within minutes. One of my favourite things to do on the weekend is jump on my bicycle, ride along the river to the gorgeous Kew or Fairfield boat shed for coffee & ice cream.

Check in from 2pm unless otherwise discussed - if I don't have a booking the night before you can check in earlier. Interaction with GuestsI will meet you at the apartment to give you keys & run through basics but otherwise it's all yours. I live up the road so can come help with anything whenever you need (I work from home) ...and I love this city & can tell you all the best places to go & things to do! :) You can self check-out if you're needing to leave early in the morning but I'm happy to come down & check you out if you'd prefer. I also offer airport pick ups & drops for a fee - please ask in messages if you'd like this. The NeighborhoodFitzroy is the heart of Melbourne's art, cafe & pub culture. You literally walk out into Fitzroy's street art "gallery". There are great bars & cafes all around - but the apartment is located 1 street in from eclectic Brunswick Street so you won't get woken by the busy weekend street life. Within walking distance to the museum, exhibition buildings, Fitzroy pool & gym, Imax cinema, Lygon St restaurant district, Smith St shops, and a stones throw from the fabulous Rose St Markets (open Sat & Sun). Lot's of great pubs all around. Even though there is no garden or courtyard space attached to the apartment, there is a small park just up the street (50mts? away) with a great kids playground, BBQ, seating & trees - very peaceful. Melbourne is full of parks so lots of places to chill out under a tree. Getting AroundI provide multiple Myki cards that can be used on all public transport in Melbourne (trams, trains, buses). I leave it up to you to top up the Myki cards with credit to suit your needs. Tram on Brunswick Street (Route 11 West Preston) is one street away (1 min walk to stop) and will take you into the heart of the city in 10 minutes & continues on to Docklands precinct or you can swap over to Route 12 Victoria Gardens to St Kilda so you can easily get to the beach & penguins!!. Also trams on Nicholson Street at other end of the street take you to city or into Brunswick. Close to Eastlink freeway so you can easily get down the East coast beaches & Philip Island by car. Car parking available on street. I am happy to pick you up from airport for a fee. My car can transport up to 4 people plus me and luggage - we can discuss this in messages. Otherwise you can taxi (prob cost about $70 one way & take 30 - 40mins) or get the airport Skybus to the city which is $18 one way ticket & then tram to Brunswick St - check out their website for latest deals. PARKING: In the immediate area: across the road and down Leicester street there is unmetered/free 2 hour parking during the day from 7am to 7pm and then it is unlimited at night so you can leave your car there from 5pm till 9am in the morning (taking into account the 2 hours each side) Please read signs carefully - some are deceptive! There is a new parking lot that opened up diagonally opposite the apartment (entry from Rose St) - it's cheap and open 24hours a day and mostly undercover ...and has some pretty cool artwork on the walls! There is lots of other mixed parking around the area but the public transport is so great in Melbourne so if you're just spending time in the city and inner suburbs and you're questioning whether to hire a car I'd say don't - the trams are a great way to see the city and I provide Myki cards which you can easily top up credit at 7/11 stores and other similar places. Other Things to NoteI'm flexible & adaptable - any questions please ask!

    The SpaceHi there, This listing is for all of Level 3 in my large 3 level home just off the wonderful Gertrude Street, comprising double bedroom, private ensuite, wee study & balcony. (I have 2 rooms available - the other listing is 'Fabulous Fitzroy, Gorgeous Gertrude' listing #150729). This is an excellent spot for guests in Melbourne for a short time who want to live like a local. Or for those lucky folk who are moving to Melbourne (nice choice!) it's a great landing pad while you look for something permanent. Located in between action-packed Brunswick and Smith Streets, this is a fantastic, diverse area full of great cafes, restaurants, wonderful local pubs, art galleries, parks, live music venues, decent architecture and the Melbourne Museum. The beloved #86 tram (our 'tramily') and #12 are just at the end of the road giving easy access to other parts of this wonderfully liveable city. The house has all the mod cons mixed in with vintage collectables. And rare in Melbourne in that it is very light and bright. Guests are welcome to help themselves to the dining room, lounge room and balconies on Level 2, as well as the kitchen which has organic breads & from our local Fatto A Mano organic bakery (where I work part-time). If you want to cook there are some basics in the cupboard above the oven and herbs in the garden to get you started and plenty of cupboard & fridge space. Breakfast - help yourself to the organic breads, spreads, juice, bonsoy & fair-trade teas and coffee. The kitchen lights are tucked between the linen cupboard and the kitchen wall, on the dining room side. Bins are under the kitchen sink. As I Airbnb the front room on the ground floor of the house, you might see me, or other guests, in the kitchen or elsewhere on Level 2. But no-one comes to Melbourne to "cook and watch TV" so it's likely you might not see any of us at all (but you are welcome to cook and watch tv!). FROM THE AIRPORT - I recommend "StarBus Airport Shuttle" which brings you right into Fitzroy, operating from 5am till 7pm, 7 days. Cut and paste StarBus Airport Shuttle into your search engine for more info. Or a taxi for approx $60 is the fastest. Fitzroy is a wonderful, diverse, energetic area. Needless to say, I love it here, I'm sure you will too! Cheers, Ramona. Smoking: strictly outside on the dining room balcony only please, with the doors closed :) Children: not suited sorry Guests: please check with myself and other Airbnb guests first Guest AccessLevel 1 - front door access and laundry (my rooms and other guest room) Level 2 - shared dining room, lounge, kitchen & 2 large balconies Level 3 - your own bedroom, bathroom, wee balcony & study Interaction with GuestsThis is a very independent set up. My rooms and another guest room is on Level 1. We are all usually out and about enjoying Melbourne so it can be rare we run into each other but I'm always contactable on my phone :) The NeighborhoodOne of Melbourne's smallest urban areas, Fitzroy, is a real treasure of old and new, working class and gentrification, historic preservation and modern architecture. Right next to the city with the Fitzroy and Carlton gardens in between, it's never boring but very relaxed. If on the odd occasion it's a bit noisy there are ear plugs in your bedside tables. Diversity, cafes, boutiques, galleries, pubs, parks, restaurants, cocktail bars, music, street art = good vibes. Getting AroundThere is so much to offer in Fitzroy you could spend most of your time getting around on foot. I've left a local guide and map in your room and marked a square around the main Fitzroy Streets as a start. The 86 or 112 trams go straight into the city in about 10 minutes. Hire a bike from Little Creatures or one of the blue Melbourne Bike Share stations. Taxi or Uber Or if you have a car my Visitor's Parking Permit might be available - first in first served! Other Things to NoteIt's a good idea to check Melbourne's weather report before you arrive, we really can have "all seasons in 1 day" so it's wise to bring something warm even for those summer nights. I recommend the app 'Weatherzone'. Help yourself to the umbrellas at the bottom of the stairs!

Great for dining alfresco, you can catch jazz bands playing on the weekend in a variety of cool restaurants and bars dotted along this hip strip. Melbourne's funky laneway district is uber cool and fun. Across the street is the buzzing restaurant and bar laneway called Hardware lane and on the weekend is filled with live music and lots of excellent places to eat and drink. McKillop St is a heritage laneway that is peaceful and lined with a handful of cute cafes and restaurants. The area is safe and close to all forms of transport.

    The SpaceA modern one bed apartment in the absolute heart of the CBD overlooking the Second Empire style Neoclassical Melbourne Town Hall built in 1870. At just under 50 sq m (Melbourne inner city apartments are generally not as large as in suburbia and space is a premium) it is equipped for stays for one or two people. Features include comfortable queen size bed, Euro galley kitchen and contemporary bathroom. With public transport, restaurants, bars and much more at the doorstep, it is convenient to everything Melbourne city has to offer from 'Paris' end Collins St. shopping, to the Arts Precinct and Laneway coffee and food - it's all at your doorstep or within 10-15 minute walk. The Capitol Theatre building is heritage listed and as such, the original features such as the huge windows, and interior column detailing dating from 1924 are there to appreciate in original condition as a contrast to the more recent interior renovations and modernisation. The heritage listing also exerts it own challenges for owners and requires us to respect the original fabric of the building - such things as windows and walls cannot be altered and remain a beautiful and tangible reflection of times long past. The space is also a reflection of my life philosophy of "less is more". Clearing out superfluous items, walking/cycling or public transporting, and living in a space that is no larger than it needs to be for my needs - is benefiting the health of the planet and my own wellbeing. It is also an ideal way to live for those needing to travel frequently or perhaps just to love the feeling of freedom that comes with this lifestyle. I hope you enjoy as much as I do - the subtle patina of history that the space exudes and that is served so well by the convenience and aesthetics of the surrounding 'borrowed' landscape - the wonderful facades and 'living rooms' of the city, and its excellent transportation systems. Please enjoy my humble abode! Guest AccessFully furnished including TV, fast wifi/internet is also set up for streaming YouTube and other eligible internet channels (ie. You can log into your Netflix, Stan etc from your smart phone) through Chromecast and the TV. A good range of DVD's is provided or play your music library from your smart phone through the quality speaker system. Euro washer/dryer combo, Microwave, Fridge, Gas Cook Top, Electric oven, Toaster, Electric kettle, Cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery, fresh and luxurious 800 tc linen and all other bedding. Iron and ironing board. Hairdryer. Interaction with GuestsYou will have the apartment to yourself but I or my 'helper' are available if you need assistance or information. I will meet you to hand over the keys and if you'd like a chat or coffee am more than happy to help out!! I will respect your privacy unless you specifically ask. Though I reserve the right to enter (in line with Airbnb policy) I will not do so without advising. The NeighborhoodBreakfast is on me if you want to stay 'in'! Cereals, bread for toast, croissants, vegemite (it is a Melbourne invention), honey, jam, fresh fruit, and milk are provided - or there are plenty of local alternatives a minute or two walk if you have a little more time. HOWEVER - Melbourne is internationally renowned for its food scene and brunch is an institution. Melbourne will only reveal its best to those who do a little curious research and get out and into it! Laneway cafes at the back entrance to the building offer great food from breakfast to dinner - just head out the building's 'back door' and some of the city's best are right there in the 'back garden'! DeGraves Street and Centre Place are famous for their cafe's and are only a 5 minute walk away. Federation Square is a short 6 minute walk and underground there you will find the Melbourne Visitor Centre for all your tourist information and booking needs. Drop by the Arts Precinct to catch a show or an exhibition or go shopping and eating to your hearts content. Currency exchange tellers and banks are in close proximity. There's a huge and diverse array of sights to see and things to do in Melbourne so I have provided a list of recommendations and brochures for your information. The Tourist Information Centre is 5-6 minutes walk away for extra help. I have also added quite a few recommendations to the Guidebook, from top end restaurants and classy cocktails, Asian bao zi, and jao zi to 'eat and runs' and much more! Check it out! (NOTE: all times are derived from GMaps walking directions and will vary according to your individual capacity) Getting AroundFrom Tullamarine Airport you can take the fast and efficient Skybus to Southern Cross Station, then short taxi ride or Skybus Shuttle (free if you have taken Skybus) to the nearest hotel to the apartment - Westin on corner of Swanston and Collins or The Causeway in Howey Place - or other at their discretion. Skybus tickets can be purchased ahead of time online. Alternatively take a taxi direct to apartment from the airport. SkyBus runs express between Melbourne Tullamarine Airport and Southern Cross Station, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The service takes approximately 20 minutes to get from the airport to the city centre. SkyBus runs every 10 minutes from 6am to 11pm and every 15 to 30 minutes at other times. A single Skybus return ticket costs $30.00 or $18.00 per adult one way. Taxi from Airport to CBD is around fifty-sixty Australian dollars(URL HIDDEN) Sightseeing: From the apartment its a short 300m (6 minute) walk to the main transport hub at Flinders Street Station. Trams near apartment building front entrance on Swanston Street (at corner of Bourke St or at corner of Collins St) for direct connections to famous Lygon Street one way (Tram 8) and the other way to St Kilda and the beaches, Chapel Street shopping and much more. Two guest MYKI transport cards (train, trams and buses) are provided for your convenience and can be topped up at nearby 711 stores. PLEASE NOTE: No parking lot is provided with the apartment but there is no need for a car for the main city attractions. If you are bringing a car please let me know and I can help with overnight parking options. And if you do use a car please be sure to check Melbourne's driving regulations as, due to the trams, these are a little different to most cities. Other Things to NoteFresh provisions: Bath towels provided (I supply enough fresh linen & towels once every 7 days of your stay and we do not change the bed linens or clean the apartment during your stay, unless specifically agreed at the time of booking - extra charges may apply). Body and hand wash are supplied as well as shampoo, conditioner, makeup remover pads, and a hairdryer. Fresh fruit, milk and OJ.

Ceiling fans plus portable reverse cycle air conditioner is brought in (to replace portable heater) December to March. 'Insite' Melbourne information: I am a docent in my spare time - providing exclusive customised architecture and food walking tours for a top international walking tour company. For pics and more on Melbourne coffee and architecture see my 'lettersfromcafenoir' Instagram. Also my 'Guide' notes on this site. Booking: I would be very appreciative if you could provide some information about yourself when requesting a booking, especially if you have not been reviewed on Airbnb. And please let me know asap if you decide not to go ahead with an enquiry would be very much appreciated as the apartment is in demand due to the location. Thanks!

    The SpaceLocated in East Melbourne, one of the oldest, most established and arguably the most exclusive area in Melbourne, on the eastern skirts (known as the 'Paris End') of the city. The open-plan two-floor loft is located in an 100 year old brewery building, having been given a complete make-over, including a spanking new kitchen. What do you get? You name it, this apartment has it - in spades. Or should that be 'in bottles'. Old brewery, bottles.. oh well.. – 2 x full size bedrooms both with fitted wardrobes, one with a walk-in-wardrobe and dressing room. – 2 x exquisite bathrooms. – Brand new kitchen, european appliances, breakfast bar, separate dinning area. – One large study with desk which can also be used as a third bedroom - including a separate fold-down single bed, doubling as an ottoman/chair. – Full laundry with new washer and condenser dryer; iron and ironing board. Other stuff: Broadband internet, large-screen LCD TV, decent DVD library, Movies/TV on Demand (Apple TV, iTunes), Bose Music system (bring your own iPod or login into Spotify); Coffee Machine (Nespresso). And all the basics - organic teas, Five Senses filter coffee, milk, sugar, fresh juices, breakfast cereals, jams, sparkling water. Also a Nespresso machine/capsules - which you won't need of course, since you're now in the heart of the coffee capital of the world! There is a cafe and boutique supermarket (IGA) two mins from the front door; elevated glass-bottomed heated (its really warm!) lap-pool; gym; lovely wine bar; liquor (bottle) shop; secure undercover car parking (own space); hairdresser. Even a dentist. All on site. The Neighbourhood: Take a short walk across beautiful Fitzroy Gardens (great for jogging), Melbourne's best loved and best known park, to the city. It will take you 15-20 mins on a slow, sight-seeing kind of day. Buses and trams stop 20 metres from the apartment if you'd like a more sedate means of getting around. Ten minutes (walking) from Melbourne Park and the Australian Tennis Open (in January); minutes from Melbourne's major concert venues (great for the big international names); within shouting distance of our largest sports venues (heaven for fans of international cricket, soccer and Aussie Rules Footy). Ten minutes from the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Come to think of it, maybe we should call it the 'ten minute to everything' apartment! What do I like best about the neighbourhood? The parks, the trees, the quiet. And I love that we are on the city's edge in a safe, friendly and caring neighbourhood. A city apartment without the noise, the nightclubs and the nuts that inhabit the city after dark. But especially without the noise. Eats, coffee and clothes: Where do you find the best coffee in Australia? Melbourne. Of course. Even Sydney-siders will agree. And where in Melbourne are the best cafes? Well, perhaps this is a little contentious.. but most will start by naming Fitzroy and Collingwood. Which of course, are just 10 mins from the apartment! Just across the adjacent (Victoria Parade) street you'll find the hearts of Getrude, Brunswick and Smith Streets. Where Melbourne sophisticates live, eat, shop and just hang out, always with a coffee or three. We're also on the edge of Collingwood (very 'in' just now) and Richmond (Bridge Road), home to all major brand outlets. Naming the best (within 10 mins walk of our apartment): Ladro for incredible, gourmet pizza (Gertrude St); 5 star serious dinning at Cutler & Co (Getrude St); Anada (Gertrude St), the best Spanish this side of Barcelona; Huxtaburger (Smith Street) for amazing burgers; Trippy Taco for cheap, healthy eats/ take-out (Mexican, Gertrude St); De Clieu (Gertrude St) for leisurely lunches, b'fasts and fantastic coffee; Allpress Espresso - brand new cafe and roasters, great coffee, gorgeous lunches (although not a big menu) and an outside grass area to relax, open from 7am (Rupert Street, Collingwood); Aunt Maggies, your local organic store/supermarket (Gertrude St), specialising in vegan soups and all things healthy; Fatto a Mano, the best Italian organic bread and cake shop, known for its pies, pastries and Italian style take-out pizza-slices (Gertrude again..); And there is of course, Spacecraft (Gertrude St) for unique art and homewear designs all by the amazing Stewart Russell. Sadly no coffee or food at Stewart's place.. Whatever you do, don't go past Proud Mary in Oxford Street, Collingwood (15 mins walk) for brilliant breakfasts, fresh juices and possibly the best coffee in the city (yes, I know - yet another great coffee place). Proud Mary IS Melbourne - you'll want to come back again.. and again! Bars (yep, all just 10 mins away): Enoteca, discrete smallish wine bar on Gertrude Street; The Everleigh, 1920s speakeasy-style bar straight out of NYC, Gertrude St; Little Creatures Dining Hall (Brunswick Street), for boutique beers and cheap'ish eats; Southpaw (Gertrude Street), laid back sort of place. Too hot for the city? If its the sea and bayside you crave.. the 109 and 96 trams will take you to Port Melbourne (which has 'summer, seaside and fish and chips written all over it) and St Kilda (busy beaches, Luna Park funfair and some of the best Gelatti outlets). Both just 30-40 mins away by tram. And guess what? Both trams pass within spitting distance of our apartment.. Getting around: City (109) and beach (109, 96) Trams and Buses all stop almost outside our door, on Victoria Parade (Street), just 30 seconds away from the apartment's main entrance on Powlett Street. For tram and train travel purchase a MyKi (same as UK Oyster, Singapore's EZ-link and HK's Octopus) card from the local IGA for $5.00 and then top-up online, at IGA, any 7/11 store or rail train station. Download the 'Tramtracker' app FREE, to get live updates on when trams are due. Invaluable. Richmond train stations (there are more than one) are a 15 min walk away, serving most of the eastern, southern and northern suburbs.

Out the front door trams to the city are pretty much constant - 5-10 mins to the city and the arts precinct. Walk via Fawkner park through the Botanical gardens to Southgate and the city. Next to Alfred hospital. Ideal location for Grand Prix or Tennis events. Guest AccessI encourage my guests have access to feel comfortable using all the common areas as well as their private room and bathroom. My philosophy is happy guests make great guests. I love guest to be comfortable and am generous with what is in my fridge and cupboards etc. Interaction with GuestsI am very organic with my guests. Sometimes they are very busy and we don't see much of each other. Other times we will share a meal or a glass of wine. It depends on what's happening in both our lives. I have had some lovely guests and feel very honoured to have shared some great times with them and a little about our respective lives. The NeighborhoodGreat neighbourhood. Some fabulous restaurants run by the sons of famed 3-star chef, Jacques Raymond. Highly recommend Bistro Gitan, 52 Toorak Road, and L'Hotel Gitan, 500 meters walk down Commercial Road. Chapel Street, Toorak Road and South Yarra are walking distance to more great restaurants and shopping. I actually prefer these areas to shop but still love the city occasionally. Toorak Road Restaurants that I like include: Southpress Wine Bar - great wines and bar menus. Also Cosi, Da Noi. Chapel Street fav of mine is Cafe e Cucina - wonderful - towards corner of Toorak Road. Restaurants I love in the city are: Il Solito Posto, the European, the Melbourne Supper Club. Great place to stay for access to the Grand Prix, easy to get to the Tennis and the MCG etc as well. Getting AroundMany frequent trams to and from the city here. Usually about 5 mins apart. Chapel Street is 1km walk or a brief tram ride down Commercial Road. Tram cards are easily available at the 711 store downstairs to get to and from the city, and trams within the city precinct are absolutely free. If you rent a car, you can use your entry fob to gain free parking in the visitor car park on Basement 1 (B1) - just off Alfred Lane. Super convenient location. I sometimes love to walk to the city via Fawkner Park, then through the Botanical Gardens. I'm a walker and enjoy a walk to Richmond shops sometimes, other times, I go across Albert Park to St Kilda, or via Albert Park towards Port Melbourne and along the bay and back. Clients have walked to the Tennis and/or the MCG for events as well as all the tram options. Great walking and running parks and routes around here. Other Things to NoteI have a dog and a new kitten who is a delight but a little wild menace at times.

Our spacious 2-bedroom apartment in Southbank is the perfect place to stay for those that want to make the most of their time in Melbourne. Everything is provided - all you have to do is enjoy yourselves! The Apartment: We think we have one of the nicest and more unique apartment complexes in Melbourne. It is a low rise complex set in an acre of landscape gardens, with grass to loll on, a gorgeous pool and spa to splash in, and a tennis court and small gym if you are feeling more active. It is more of a resort than an apartment complex. The complex is low-rise with only four stories and the apartment is located up two flights of stairs on the second floor. The apartment is in easy walking distance of the tennis centre, the CBD, theatres, restaurants, and most of Melbourne's major attractions, with public transport to the city and beach on your doorstep, and bike paths all around.

In the area: Our apartment is located in the heart of Melbourne's 'arts precinct', a short walk from the river, Southgate, Crown Entertainment, DFO and Docklands, with a huge range of great restaurants, bars and shops to choose from. We could go on an on... but its best that you explore yourselves! If you would like more info just send us an email via airbnb. But if you are interested we would suggest that you get in quick as accommodation in this complex tends to get booked out early. :) Cheers Bronnie and Neil NOTE: While this is a great place to enjoy the best of Melbourne it is not a party place. The body corporate is very strict on late night parties and noise and fines are issued if security has to be called out. It is a family friendly place and we are looking for considerate people/family who will be respectful of the apartment, neighbours, facilities, and body corporate rules.

      The SpaceI've been hosting for three years and have prided myself on providing a wonderful guest experience in Melbourne. I have owned my little part of Melbourne for 15 years now and wouldn't trade it for the world. It's just the perfect location! The Melbourne Apartment is great for short term rentals of either two nights or up to two weeks. Nestled in a Heritage Listed Boutique Building (circa 1911), a vestige of the Melbourne “rag trade" area. in the beautiful Flinders Lane. It's a quirky homely environment with lots of character, not a hotel, so if you are the sort of person where everything has to be perfect, maybe its not for you! But if you like personality combined with comfort then we think we have it just right. Unfortunately the apartment and building is not wheel chair or walker friendly, being an "over a century" old building with 6 steps in the entrance foyer. You will cope though, with our complimentary little shopping trolley if you decide to splash-out at any of our amazing boutiques, or patisseries. The apartment is fully furnished with Queen size bed, and sofa, fully appointed kitchen, refrigerator and freezer, washing machine, dryer, hair dryer, flat screen television, wifi, apple dock for ipad and iphone and is perfect for a couple. There is a sofa bed for a friend sharing the apartment with yourself. So you don't have to bunk together (always a bonus!) Located in the best spot in Melbourne, entrance is in the gorgeous Bligh Place, one of the most beautiful lanes in Melbourne for cafes and restaurants. In fact a showpiece lane for the City of Melbourne, where cafes, restaurants and residents coexist in harmony. It will feel like you are in Europe! The lane is well lit at night with security entrance and intercom. Our apartment is right in the heart of the CBD, with cafes, restaurants, bars, shopping, train and tram, 24 hour supermarkets, exceptional lane way off Flinders Lane that is reminiscent of Europe. The Melbourne Apartment is close to everything. Leave the car and walk to Melbourne's amazing attractions, theatres, the arts, South Bank, Casino, National Gallery of Victoria, Federation Square, shopping, bars and cafes. Nearby there is a supermarket, bottle shop, City Library, Flinders Street Station, Trams and more only a few steps away. Linen and towels are included (which have been professionally laundered), and complimentary coffee and teas. FREE coffee for our guests having breakfast any day of the week at Cafe Mile. Menu is in apartment We love our little apartment, we know you will too. We expect our guests to be respectful and clean up as they find it! Thanks! One of our recent guests emailed her feedback: "I fell in love with this gorgeous apartment the moment I stepped into it. It was spacious and charming whilst low key and easy maintenance. It totally captured the lane way vibe of Melbourne. I was literally sad to leave it. Excellent kitchen and bathroom, romantic bedroom alcove. Fast internet. There is a fabulous restaurant and great bar right outside the front door. Karen, it was gorgeous, I felt like it was mine, my home. Even though I was obviously just visiting, it suited my style and taste perfectly." Dr. R.D. Guest AccessThis is a whole apartment. Interaction with GuestsI'm available via telephone or text. The NeighborhoodOur Lane is a premier lane with high class cafes, restaurants and bars. It's well lit up at night and the laneway is friendly and funky. Getting AroundTrains are are only around 200 metres away. Trams are only 50 metres away. Tram straight to Queen Victoria Market for fresh produce and delicacies Other Things to NoteI love the proximity to transport and everything is within walking distance.

Being a 2-bedroom flat, it is best suited to groups of up to four. However, I can arrange a fold-out single bed and linen (and additional towels if required) for a fifth person (or just for those who don't want to share one of the queen beds) at a cost of $10/night. I'm also very family friendly, having a child of my own, and love having families stay. The only thing that I ask is that you are mindful of the close proximity of neighbours when it comes to noise. Please refer to the house rules. The apartment is in a block of 10 apartments, in a 70s-era brick building - it's not the prettiest of buildings from the outside, but inside is bright, sunny, clean and comfortable! Having previously been my home, the apartment is well appointed, and has lots of homely touches, including a bookshelf full of books. Minutes walk to High St cafes, bars, and an eclectic mix of shops. The apartment is fully furnished with all linen, towels, kitchen utensils and appliances provided. Fully furnished : - queen-sized beds in both bedrooms; - built in wardrobes - TV / DVD player - stainless steel oven & cooktop - microwave - all kitchen appliances - fridge - washing machine - secure and safe - big sliding windows let in lots of fresh air Reverse cycle heating/cooling. Lovely light & bright little flat that will sleep up to 4 people. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the entire apartment exclusively for their own use. They also can access a shared space at the back of the block where there are a number of shared clotheslines. They can also use the shared laundry on the ground floor, which has coin-operated clothes drier and washing machine. NB. The apartment is equipped with its own washing machine. Interaction with GuestsI like to leave my guests to enjoy their stay in Melbourne without interfering too much. I'll be in touch in the days leading up to your arrival to confirm what time you'll check-in. Late night check-ins are no problem. I'm available 24/7 on my mobile and email if there are any problems. I will then stay in touch via the odd text message or phone call to make sure everything is going smoothly. The NeighborhoodBefore all the hipsters moved in (just joking! We love hipsters!)

      The SpaceSummary: Our 2 bedroom loft is off Flinders Lane in the heart of Melbourne, a city renowned for its food, culture and shopping. The loft is huge and spacious with high ceilings, polished floors and heating. There's a brilliant kitchen but you might be more excited about the restaurants below. The Space: Our loft is on the 4th floor of a 100 year old heritage building in the middle of Melbourne. It's huge with 12 foot ceilings and polished boards. There are 2 main sleeping areas, each of which have a queen bed, and 2 single beds which can be made up in the lounge room, but these are only suitable for children. There are 2 bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath. The loft is in central Melbourne, with trams and trains a minutes walk away. There's no parking with the loft but lots of parking stations around the area if you bring your own car. You can also sign up to something like flexicar ( a few weeks before your trip) if you want to use a car in the city. If you want to buy food to have in the loft there is a supermarket around the corner, and the Queen Victoria Market a few blocks or tramstops away. There is also David Jones food hall which is a brilliant place if you want to indulge and buy anything from anywhere ( at a price :-)). If you dont want to cook there is a huge range of cafes, bars and restaurants just outside your door - and thats probably one of the things that has brought you to Melbourne in the first place! Melbourne is the culinary capital of Australia ( ask anyone - as long as they don't come from Sydney! And even then they would have to tell you the truth !) There is some great music, media and tech options too. We have lots of music available through the loft via some Sonos speaker systems, you can move them around to where you want to use them, play from music we have stored there or play music from your phone or iPod. We have an ADSL internet service, there is also Netflix, Stan and an AppleTV for movies and an iMac and wireless printer/scanner. The laundry has a washer dryer combo as well as a separate dryer. There is also an ironing board and iron in there. There are 2 queen sized beds in the loft, with 2 single beds that can be made up if required ( children only). Both bathrooms have great lighting, heated towel racks and good mirrors. Our lounge has two comfy leather couches and a big tv. Guest access: The loft is accessed by a lift, there are about 6 steps when you first walk through the gate and after that it's flat. Once you enter the loft you will find a large open plan kitchen and dining area with the laundry and second bathroom just around the corner. The laundry has a washer dryer combo as well as a separate dryer. There is also an ironing board and iron in there. Interaction with guests: Carmen will be your point of contact when you arrive and leave and she will be able to help you out if you have any questions. There is also a guide to the loft that you will find when you get there and that has all the information you will need - feel free to add any info to it if you discover a brilliant place to eat that we haven't discovered ourselves! You can also call us if you have any questions. Check in is in the afternoon and out in the morning but if you need to stay longer and there is no one checking in after you we can try and be flexible. Guest AccessBligh Place is a small, friendly lane, off Flinders Lane. It has a couple of cafes in it and our building entrance is opposite Bistro du Monde. We are in the heart of the city, so there can be a little noise at night but the loft has been designed to minimise the street noise. The loft is accessed by a lift, there are about 6 steps when you first walk through the gate and after that it's flat. It's a great secure location as your key controls access to the floor. Once you enter the loft you will find a large open plan kitchen and dining area with the laundry and second bathroom just around the corner. Bedrooms are further down, with the living area at the front. Large glass doors can provide privacy between each area.

You can also call us if you have any questions The NeighborhoodThe neighbourhood is the city of Melbourne, post code 3000. There is EVERYTHING you need within the few blocks surrounding the loft. In the next block is the Nicholas building, chock full of quirky vintage shops, specialised button and japanese fabric shops and artists studios and galleries. Its a city that never sleeps and if you go out to the theatre/ cinema/ sports venue/ conference centres which are all within walking distance, you'll be sure to find sustenance on the way there and back no matter the time! Did I mention the Yarra river which is a block away? Or the Botanical Gardens or the Museum of Immigration? All just a block or so away - you won't have time to see and do everything the neighbourhood has to offer - looking forward to seeing you back again! Getting AroundI love trams - the best way to travel :-) Melbourne has what they call the Myki card, which you can buy for $5 for the card from any 7/11 shop and then top it up. Just hop on a tram and swipe your card and you are away. You can download a phone app called Tramtracker which will show you the tram routes and when the next tram will arrive. There are also suburban trains a block away or regional trains about 4 blocks away. If you fancy a ride on a boat there are ferries to Williamstown down at the Yarra. If you are really organised you can join Melbourne Bike Share which is a new form of public transport, designed for short trips across the city. Simply purchase a subscription that suits you, take a bike when you need it and then return it to one of the 50 bike stations throughout the city. (website (URL HIDDEN) or there are similar car schemes which allow you to use a car for a couple of hours or a day, one is (website (URL HIDDEN) which has a couple of cars permanently parked in the next street. This means you can take a picnic and go for a drive to the Dandenongs or down to the Great Ocean Road ( and wait till you see the nifty picnic basket in the loft!). Other Things to NoteIt's a quirky environment with lots of character, not a hotel, so if you are the sort of person where everything has to be perfect, maybe its not for you! But if you like personality combined with comfort then we think we have it just right.
