House on O'Farrell Yarraville

Bedrooms 3
Property type hotel
Minimum Stay 1 - 2 nights


About the property

House on O'Farrell is situated in the immaculately preserved suburb of Yarraville, which feels like a different world from the CBD, just 8 kilometers away. Melbourne is regarded as one of the world's most liveable cities and the term 'Marvellous Melbourne' (first used in the 1880s) is still frequently used by the media and its residents today. Many of our guests come from overseas and we would encourage you all to take the time to get to know why Melbourne is often referred to as such a liveable city.

This cozy but beautifully appointed home-away-from-home is perfectly situated close to all of Melbourne's main tourist attractions. House on O'Farrell is situated perfectly between the suburbs of Yarraville and Seddon. In Yarraville, go about your usual inner-city business at a relaxed pace around the village nexus of Anderson and Ballarat streets. Wander along Gamon Street - to Charles and Victoria Streets (in Seddon) to choose between one of the 14 restaurants listed in the Australian Good Food and Travel Guide. If you after the complete relaxation package, why not book in for a massage (with practitioners providing exceptional holistic healthcare) or the wellbeing clinic located directly at the end of the street?

Envy the locals over coffee and cakes at the local bakeries. Bookend the day with cocktails at any of the licensed local restaurants, or, have tapas and nibble on pizzas within the delightful open-aired cafes. Stroll through boutiques, gift shops and bookstores, and keep your eye out for artisan wares, jewellery and gourmet food and wine that is hard to find in the big city. Don't miss the beautifully restored Art Deco Sun Theatre, opened in 1938 and a modern-day icon of Melbourne's film community. Enjoy a glass of wine or beer while catching cult films, classics and recent releases.

Curtis Stone (who was recently interviewed by the Herald Sun - in recognition of Melbourne's 180th Birthday in 2015) when asked about the best suburb in Melbourne said: "Yarraville is really quaint. It's got a small-town, country vibe going on but is only a stone's throw from the city. Wandering around Yarraville, stopping by a wine bar followed by a film at the art deco Sun Theatre would make the ultimate date night for me."

Ideally this property is suited to couples and older families travelling from the country or guests flying in from interstate/overseas who want to base themselves centrally in Melbourne or be close to relatives in the area. Young families will need to make contact with the owner to see if this house is appropriate for your needs. This is not a place where large family gatherings or parties can be thrown.


This property is situated (in close walking distance) to both Seddon and Yarraville train stations and is closely located to many of Melbourne's main tourist attractions:

- 10 minutes drive to Melbourne's vibrant City Centre and shopping district

Just Spectacular !!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at House on O'Farrell with three generations of family, for a family function in Yarraville, and the house was PERFECT !!! Everything has been thought of and the house is so well equipt and put together. The décor is classy, yet still feels homely and cosy. I think this is the cleanest accommodation I have ever stayed in. Too many extras to mention, but all were noted and greatly appreciated. We slept so well in the stunningly luxurious beds. The Village is an easy walk to all the wonderful cafes and shops, and the train was an easy way to access the City. Thank you for sharing your house with us, and we hope to be back again.

So private, peaceful and convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We had an extended stay for two weeks, three adults and two kids and it was perfect for us all. The house is in such a quiet street with its own private backyard that was great to relax and let the kids tinker about in a safe space. The house is equipped with everything from kitchen to laundry and comfortable beds with plenty of towels and extra bedding. The location was also a major plus for us, a playground down the road, coffee shops, restaurants, supermarket and we even treated ourselves to a night at the Sun Theatre which is a real gem with its period charm. We had a hire car and found it to be easy to access all areas of greater Melbourne, taking ourselves out for day trips then returning to our own space at the end of the day was so nice. Highly recommend this place, very well presented and great for a family and the owners were so easy to deal with.
