Overview

About the property

Retro with a twist

This 50s villa provides stand-alone accomodation and is probably the closest boutique accommodation you'll find to Flemington's finish line, being a 10 minute walk (or stagger) to The Showgrounds or Flemington Racecourse. The retro villa is located in a quiet street close to public transport with buses to Moonee Ponds and Footscray/Williamstown at the end of the street, a mere 2 min stroll away. Trams to Melbourne or Highpoint Shopping Centre are close by in Union Road. and it is just 20 mins to the CBD by public transport and 10 minutes to the Footscray campus of VUT.

This two bedroom self-contained villa isn't your typical white-bland Ikea look-like accommodation. The villa has been creatively styled for easy and cosy living, with a mix of design aesthetics from Victorian to retro, in an eclectic display that celebrates our collecting passions. Work out which rooms reflects the theatre director and which has been themed around the garden designer. Renovated as our own accommodation three years ago, the roomy villa has all mod cons. We have since moved into the original bluestone and brick Victorian homestead and are right next door if you need any additional help or advice on the area's attractions.

The villa accommodates 4 adults, and has been designed as a family home. There is a comfortable double bed in the front bed-sitting room. The separate and full sized kitchen/dining room contains microwave, fridge/ freezer, combination gas and electric Smeg oven, range hood and all necessary facilities including Bluetooth iPhone/smart phone player and complimentary WiFi. A peaceful bedroom contains a Queen bed and linen, wardrobe and TV and air-con. The spacious bathroom contains a shower, plus a European laundry with washing, drying and ironing facilities.

On street parking available throughout the year (no permits required for festival days). However if you have specific parking needs let us know as off-street parking may be arranged.

We have a minimum of 2 nights stay, and can accommodate longer tenancies, with prices negotiable for longer stays.

Normal check-in is 2 pm with 10am departure, but these times may be changed to accommodate your travel arrangements. Please contact the owners for additional information.

This is a non-smoking property and it is not pet-friendly.

We very much enjoyed our stay. Quite neighbourhood with conveniences close by. Very friendly hosts. If you plan on spending time in the CBD you can easily get there by car or tram.

Comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. The accommodation is comfortable and interesting. It has everything you could need. Andrew was very welcoming. Using public transport was a bit complicated. The train was accessed by bus ( which could be caught at the end of the street) and the tram about 15 mins walk away. Having said that we managed easily. A great place to stay with a car. Very quiet pleasant street.

A truly comfortable stay

  • 5 of 5

We appreciated this 50s inspired home. It was comfortable for the 4 of us, all adults. Enjoyed the cooking facilities and available crockery, sufficient for us and some visitors, if needed. Owners provided comprehensive information about shopping and restaurants in their email, prior to our stay. We found this very helpful, also the owners live nearby and offered their contact numbers, should we have any queries. My 90yr old mum, was happy in the home,as she does not get to travel much these days. We will certainly consider staying here again. It was also good having complimentary WiFi. Thanks Kim & Andrew

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Bathroom/toilet/laundry facilities great. Felt the carpet in bedroom was not clean and bedroom and TV room hadn't been dusted. Enjoyed our stay though and bowl of fruit in kitchen was a nice touch.
