Fantastic Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Julies apartment. Our 6 night stay was fantastic for the four of us and easy access walking or on trams to where ever we went. This included the Royal Show, Caulfield Race course, Queen Victoria Markets, South Melbourne Markets etc.

Highly recommend anyone looking for quality accommodation book this apartment without hesitation. Our Arrival was 2am and Julie even made the check in process so easy for us. Thanks Again Julie will stay again with you next time in Melbourne.

Great location and home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Spent 4 relaxing days in this well appointed apartment. Walking distance to all things Southbank. Visited Interior design show, crown, Southbank eateries, and DFO factory outlets. We walked to our conference at Planetshakers church with ease, and even caught a 'green cab' bike ride as our feet where over walking! Best experience. Highly recommend apartment for this part of town. Clean, warm and beds a delight!
