Grand old house with all the comforts!

  • 4 of 5

Grand old house with great atmosphere and plenty of space for 4 couples and an extra.

Large bedrooms and Living room plus large kitchen /diner spralling onto outdoor patio made for a comfortable stay. Plenty of room and options to get away from the group for quiet time. We were a party of 5 single ladies and the 2 bathrooms to share worked well ( however may be an issue for 5 couples if not timetabled?) great location for access to Sth melb market and trams to city.j

Ticks all the boxes!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Melbourne regularly and have never stayed here before. We absolutely loved it. The terrace was just beautiful and had such a warmth about it! We had 8 guests stay and it was very comfortable and roomy. The location is fantastic (5 mins walk to Clarendon St) yet a quiet street. Brenda was fantastic and helped with places to eat, salons for hair, etc, etc. I would highly recommend this property.

Large grand terrace house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Grand South Melbourne Terrace. It is a large home with 5 bedrooms, a backyard and off-street parking, so it was a perfect size for our family gathering. The house is a very grand old terrace with modern features and our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The tram stop is directly across the road and we found it very easy to get around the city, either by walking or tram. We highly recommend the property and would stay there again.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed in Brenda's wonderful home for our annual Girl's Weekend! The house was big and comfortable and in a perfect location - a short walk to the South Melbourne Market, trams and even walking distance to Albert Park. Would definitely stay again!
