Ground floor deco apartment with north facing enclosed balcony right on Robe Street next to The Esplanade and beachfront in trendy St Kilda. The secure apartment block is called "The Royal" and is a 50 metre walk to the tram stop into the city (15 min) and beyond: but why leave St Kilda when it is all here, sea baths, beach, cafes, bars, restaurants, Luna Park, bicycle paths, renowned Sunday Esplanade market, St Kilda festival, so much to do and see all year round.

Walk outside front entrance turn left and you are on The Esplanade with Sunday market , Palais theatre, Luna Park and adjacent beachfront, turn right and stroll 50 metres then turn right again and you are in foodies heaven on Acland Street with fantastic decadent European cake shops as well as cafes and supermarkets or catch a tram to the city area from the Esplanade and along lively Fitzroy Street. We are sure you will be entertained wherever you go.

Free wi fi included in price


Queensize bed in bedroom,mirrored wardrobe with plenty of hanging space, hallway leads to NEW fully equipped kitchen at rear of apartment for those who might like to stay indoors and cook rather than step outside to the cafes and restaurants. Follow hallway to front lounge area with full size lounge suite to laze away a wintry day in front of the 50 inch TV or step outside to the enclosed north facing balcony/patio to partake of the St Kilda atmosphere.

Self check in is available via keysafe.

Great place,great location !

  • 5 of 5

'The Ripper' was the perfect base for our stay in Melbourne. A hip little apartment with everything we needed. The tram at the end of street and on-street parking made life easy and Acland St. is a short stroll away. Hop on the tram and your in the city in no time. Sue was very easy to deal with. I highly recommend it.

An Art Deco Delight!

  • 5 of 5

Had the most wonderful short break at The Royal. Sue made the whole booking and arrival process smooth and easy.

Cannot fault this lovely apartment full of charm, character and an extremely comfortable bed!

Two minute stroll to the beach or tram stop.

You'll be spoilt for choice with a plethora of bars restaurants and cafes.

Be sure to try Milk The Cow if you're partial to a good cheese paired with wine beer or cider.

This was our first visit to St Kilda and definitely won't be our last.

Thanks Sue!

We'll be back to The Royal for sure!!

Super Stay

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location right in the heart of St Kilda with shops, restaurants and the beach to walk to. Very comfortable, clean and homely accommodation with sound security in mind. Only thing I missed was laundry facility, however a laundrette was close by. Thank you to Sue

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy for a lovely review. The laundrette is so close that we have not advertised on site laundry facilities on our website. Ironing board etc but not laundry as the facilities are only around the corner. Glad you enjoyed your stay

just like home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at The Royal Little Ripper. It was so homely but also had a fantastic Art Deco appeal. It was a very short walk to Acland St and an even shorter walk to the esplanade. It was very clean and the bed was comfy. We will definitely be back.

Owner's Response: Thanks Karl, will look forward to your return visit. I think you may have meant "love this property rather than lives this property" I hope it was just a typo. Thanks for taking the time to submit a review and I will catch you next time
