Rates vary enormously based on length of stay, special event periods, number of guests and specials that we run from time to time. For example, a short stay around Christmas can have a higher daily rate than a longer stay in winter. This website is unable to show this in full. We show the 7-night rate shown here, rather than rates for various week days, as we do not charge extra for weekends etc. So please ask us for a quote. We always reply quickly.

There's a very comfy pillow-top king-sized bed, that blends well with the newly decorated apartment, and additional guests can enjoy a very comfortable double sofa bed or single foldaway. You can also ask for a cot or high chair if you need them; no extra charge.
Bayviews is pet friendly if your pets are people-friendly.
Our Melbourne serviced apartments are decorated and fitted out under guidance of a very experienced interior decorator for your enjoyment.

BAYVIEWS GUEST COMMENTS
Fantastic Apartment right in the middle of Southbank. We had a great stay, within walking distance of everything wonderful in Melbourne, so close to the river and entertainment at the Casino and Arts Centre. The apartment is beautifully decorated and just as important it was super clean. We were very impressed by the concierge - so friendly and helpful.
Two things come to mind while staying at Bayviews Apartment at Southbank. Comfort and Convenient. Apartment was beautifully furnished, fully equip, very clean and lovely views from balcony especially at night. Would recommend this apartment to the most fuzziest customer. A credit to owners for maintaining such a high standard.
We did enjoy our time at the Southbank apartment. Everything that we required was found easily in the apartment and the location was very convenient. Thank you for the information you gave us about the local shops, it turned out to be very helpful! It was also a bonus to have a swim in the pool.
A great position and a very comfortable apartment. We really appreciated the thoughtful little extras.
