Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

A brilliant long weekend using Cambridge St as our base! There was ample room for 2 couples, it was super quiet and very comfortable for 4. The facilities were well thought out and generous - the linens and towel were top quality as were all appliances. It was very easy transacting with the property owner. We walked all over Collingwood and Fitzroy, and into the CBD without any trouble, and the trams took us further out from the convenient nearby tram stop. I look forward to staying again sometime.

Very comfortable

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this apartment in Collingwood. Easy to get to the city, the Tennis and everywhere else we ventured. The location has heaps of restaurants close by and interesting shopping away from the crowds. We were well looked after with everything we needed and the owners being extremely helpful.

Ideal inner city location

Collingwood and neighbouring Fitzroy offer the best of inner Melbourne living. Just metres away eat and drink or shop for treasures and fashion in the bustling commercial strips along Smith, Gertrude, and Brunswick Streets. Take a relaxing walk in the Exhibition Gardens or the Fitzroy Gardens. Enjoy the night life nearby, often with live music.

For sports fans it's just a short way on foot or by tram to Melbourne's major sporting venues including the Melbourne Cricket Ground and the Melbourne Tennis Centre.

The famous Princess Theatre and other live theatre venues in Melbourne CBD are easily reached by a short tram or taxi ride. Collingwood is a great base for visits to other Melbourne attractions such as the National Gallery of Victoria, the Melbourne Museum , Queen Victoria Markets, Melbourne Zoo.

A great feature of the area is its variety. There is an energetic local maker stream mixed in with wholesalers, retailers, educational and medical facilities, and myriad professional and other service providers. All this along with a healthy mix of houses and apartments.
