A pleasant stay but it’s all looking a bit tired

  • 3 of 5

PROS

- Amenities nearby - tram stop a short 5 minute walk from the property, along with plenty of restaurants, cafes and a supermarket

- Great bedroom configuration for two separate families traveling together or for parents with adult kids that want some privacy

- Safe and secure with fencing around the perimeter

CONS

- It’s a good 40 minute tram ride into the city

- House and suburb doesn’t have that stereotypical hip Melbourne vibe

- Everything’s looking a bit tired - the fake leather on the couches is peeling (rugs have been placed over the sofas to conceal this). Carpet in the main upstairs bedroom has started to bubble/go wavy. The ensuite shower is quite moldy and needs a good scrub. Dust has gathered on surfaces: toilet roll holder and hand towel holder.

- Limited selection of kitchen products - there wasn’t even a full set of plates or bowls.

Fiona (the owner) was pleasant to deal with and was prompt with responses and great with communication. But sadly I wouldn’t stay here again unless the property had an overhaul of some things.

Owner's Response: Thanks for alerting us to your concerns. In regards to the distance needed to travel to the city I am not sure why this is a “con” as you are aware of the location when booking. Also Essendon in a fantastic area and of course it is not as “hip” as the St Kilda’s of Melbourne and we wouldn’t have it any other way! It’s a perfect suburb for fantastic restaurants, ease of shopping, transport and distance to he airport. We do realise the couch needs attention but have endeavoured to accomodate previous guests wear and tear. We do not feel an 8 year old townhouse needs an “overhaul” and it’s unfair you have described it in such a way. Apologies our home didn’t meet your standards when paying $500 for six people to stay in accomodation for a weekend. Sadly I would not accept your booking if you wanted to stay again. With thanks, Fi

We really enjoyed our stay! Perfect location, close to shops and airport. Although we didn't meet the host in person, Instructions were very clear and we felt very welcome. Would definitely recommend to others. Thank you!

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable family property in a great location. Supermarket, tram stop and excellent restaurants only a couple of minutes walk away. Property was also very secure with locked front gate and garage at the back also behind locked gate. Also close to Tullamarine airport and about 35 minutes into town on the tram. Would definitely stay here again.

5 star stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful apartment, modern, clean and in a great location.

Be mindful that the living area is upstairs so they can get a bit tiresome but everything was clean and comfortable except for the pillows, sorry :)

It's on a busy street but very quiet

Loved the rain shower too!

Will definitely book this again and will recommend to friends.

Fabulous, peaceful and sell appointed retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were in Melbourne for a frantic and stressful trip and staying here was such a treat. Not only is it more beautiful than the pictures, each bedroom is a good size with a very comfortable bed. The bedrooms have absolutely ideal sleeping conditions - extremely quiet and peaceful and can be made completely dark or light and bright depending on your preference.

If you want a beautiful, quiet and calm environment with an excellent location this is the one!

This is a fantastic place! Even more beautiful than it looks in the photos, very quiet and peaceful with a great location.

I would strongly recommend staying here and intend to do so again myself.
