About the property

Hi there, I'm Joe. I have 19 fantastic apartments, all with their own character - and I love what I do.

Fantastic little studio, amazing value for money as you can see!

I have 5 other apartments in the same building so your friends or family can stay there in their own apartment.. 6 apartments in total- all studios, for two people each apartment has a double bed.

This apartment is a STUDIO APARTMENT (one room and bathroom/shower and balcony) It's quiet spacious for a studio.

The block is Neo Georgian style and maintained in good condition for its age.

Priced accordingly it represents fantastic value. The apartments is lovely, decorated with style. You won't find better value for your money. Lovely bed with beautiful linen.

I'm ok to add a 3rd person although remember it's a studio. Fee is $40 per night. You can pay that cash on arrival.

I will personally greet you on your arrival and provide a familiarisation tour.

If required, I'll advise you on all things Melbourne such as shopping, attractions, lane way restaurants, how to get there and what to do! Ask and I'll help.

If required, parking is available upon request at $25 for 4 nights. For 5 nights and over, parking is $7 per night. This can be paid in cash on arrival.

You're in a fantastic spot with everything is at your door step. The beach is just minutes away.

Located 6km from the city center, St Kilda is Melbourne’s seaside playground and is much-loved by residents and visitors alike. St Kilda is renowned for its expansive view of Port Phillip, sandy beach, palm-lined boardwalk, huge range of beach activities, big skies, gorgeous sunsets, lovely park and gardens, great restaurants, bars and cafés, fabulous old buildings, and its colorful past and present.

20 second walk to one of St Kilda's best Pubs (The Prince) and Cafe (IL Fornaio)

2 min walk to public transport

5 minute walk to more than 30 restaurants, clubs and bars

5 minutes walk to the Catani Gardens

5 minutes walk to the St Kilda Sea Baths and the Beach

5 minutes walk to Luna Park and the Palais Theatre

8 minutes walk to the end of St Kilda Pier

You will be nestled amongst St Kilda's vibrant shopping & cafe precinct.

Minutes to the St. Kilda Beach, Luna Park, Palais Theater and city bound trams. Esplanade Market at your door step! It's a brilliant, fun stay!

All year round, St.Kilda is the place to head for fantastic things to see and do and great times to be had. With our great places to eat and drink and our wonderful sea air, everything tastes so much better in St Kilda – so come out and join us!

If you're keen to head into the city you can easily jump on the 96 or 16 tram on Acland St and be there in 20 minutes. Coming in from the airport you have Taxi, Skybus + 96 Tram or FAPAS ( booked bus transfer directly to the corner of our road). We're easy to reach with lots of options.

The Melbourne transit system- trams, trains and buses use the Myki system.

The Melbourne Bike Share system is a quick 5-minute walk from us and it's pretty great for riding around the bay and into the city.

If it's a great spot so if you're after and a place that's central to absolutely everything, this is the perfect studio.

I also have 4 other apartments also in Acland St, at the opposite end, priced at around $120-$160 per night. If you're after something really stylish yet brilliantly priced, have a look at theme below.

St Kilda is eclectic, vibrant, fun and full of interesting people right on our beautiful bay in Melbourne. In the hot weather, you can enjoy the promenade and beaches by the water - a 5-minute walk from the Apartment.

We have Luna Park, great live music venues literally around the corner or down the road from our place.

You can find great food, drink and entertainment every day of the week and I will be super happy to help you maximise your experience of our wonderful Neighborhood!

Please note:

For stays 2 to 3 nights a cleaning fee of $30 will apply. This will be charged automatically along with the Airbnb fee. For stays 4 nights and over, an extra $30 cleaning will apply. This can be paid for on arrival, cash.

All my properties are listed below. Please feel free to call me if you need help with anything.

Kind Regards,

Joe Mottola

Owner's Response: Hi Rex from Colac. To answer your incredulous review: "Beside tram track" The apartment is NOWHERE NEAR the tram track it's a 700m walk away! It's Stkilda Rex!!! shower hot for 20 sec then cold for 3 . I've since tried the shower 300 times and not found anything wrong with it and nor have any guests for 4 years! Web site is local, it DOES NOT QUOTE IN AUS dollars!! What the??? Where ANYWERE on my site does it say Fitzroy st?? And who would WANT to stay on Fitzroy st which IS ACTUALLY ON THE TRAM TRACK?? One star you gave me for location? Really? It's a 2 minute walk to more than 30 restaurants, clubs and bars 2 minutes walk to the Catani Gardens 4 minutes walk to the St Kilda Sea Baths and the Beach 20 second walk to one of St Kilda's best Pub (The Prince) and Cafe (IL Fornaio) 40 seconds walk to public transport 5 minutes walk to Luna Park and the Palais Theatre 8 minutes walk to the end of St Kilda Pier Rex, Rex Rex...did you actually stay in my apartment? You paid $85 per night for a lovely studio that is spotless and in the best spot in StKilda. good on you Rex from Colac.
