Outstanding hidden oasis in bustling St Kilda

  • 5 of 5

What a find! This is our second stay here and I hope we’ll be here again. The cosy, delightful cottage is tucked away behind an apartment block, accessed through a secure gate tucked in a private alleyway. Open the gate into the garden and it is like a different world, leaving behind the hustle and bustle of St Kilda and entering a secret domain.

The cottage has everything you could want for a short or longer stay. Extremely well equipped and with many thoughtful touches, there is more than enough to ensure a home from home feeling. The bedroom is tastefully and simply decorated with a large comfortable bed, a perfect living space and a gorgeous outside courtyard. There is a small but well equipped kitchen, great audiovisual and fast Wi-fi. The private hidden outside space is a real bonus, adding to the serenity and living space and a superb place to relax.

There was enough room to entertain our son and his family, who live nearby, and with the sofa-bed also my enough space for my sister who visited for a couple of days from Brisbane.

The location is amazing. Melbourne’s transport network is superb, and Wyndham Cottage is within a couple of minutes walk of the extensive bus and tram network. Melbourne Tullamarine Airport Skybus also drops within 2 minutes walk and we figured that from here you can reach any major city in the world in just two or three steps. There are superb shops and restaurants around the corner (loved Fitzrovia and Milk The Cow) and Albert Park (home of the Aussie Grand Prix and world class sporting facilities) is just across the road. St Kilda’s lively Acland St and beach is 10 minutes walk or a short hop on the tram and Melbourne CBD about 15 minutes by tram.

Andrew is a great host, unobtrusive but available if needed and keen to ensure guests have everything they need. He checked we had everything we wanted, solved a couple of minor issues instantly and was available when needed. Great communication.

I can’t recommend Wyndham Cottage enough. Love this place.

Lovely cottage haven in busy St Kilda

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and very secure. Quality linen and a large comfortable bed. A functional little kitchen and separate bathroom. Andrew, the proprietor, is very obliging and attentive to detail. The information provided is first class. Take careful note of his advice re parking and you shouldn’t have any problems. Coming from Tasmania, I found St Kilda, like most of inner Melbourne, a very busy place with continual traffic noise. Fortunately, the location of the cottage is within walking distance to large Albert Park Lake and the beach. The greenery in the cottage courtyard also provides a visual escape from the busyness of the area. Andrew is to be commended for making the cottage pet friendly.

Owner's Response: Dear Gail, I'm so pleased you enjoyed staying at the cottage with your sister and your dog Hannah, thank you for your sharing your experience with other travelers looking for a comfortable and unique home close to the centre of Melbourne. It was the first time we have been asked if there is parking for 2 vehicles and it was great to be able to accommodate you with 2 cars. It was lovely to meet you both, just a shame I missed out on meeting cute little Hannah, but I know she fabulous time at the cottage and out and about in Albert Park, it is paradise for pets in so many ways! All the very best, fond regards - Andrew
