If it's location you're after, you simply cannot beat my pad in the buzzing heart of Melbourne's coolest neighbourhood. This heritage warehouse is surrounded by award-winning eateries, pubs, live music and markets. Walk or 10 minute tram to the city centre. Perfect for 2 or 3 people or business.

The space

Exposed brick walls, iron beams, polished concrete floor with under floor heating - it's the epitome of funky and creative Fitzroy. The building was previously McRobertson's Chocolate Factory and made some of Australia's most iconic confectionery. Just a few minutes walk to Brunswick Street or Smith Street, you are on the door step of heritage pubs, chef hatted eateries, some of the best coffee in Melbourne and live music venues.

Guest access

You will have the entire apartment which consists of a lounge area with a sofa bed, a full kitchen and dining area and downstairs powder room. Upstairs is the main bedroom, study alcove and bathroom with bath and shower. There is also an undercover car space in the secure garage.

Interaction with guests

I work for the official tourism body for Melbourne and Victoria and will provide the latest brochures and info about what to do and where to go. Happy to have a chat as well if you need some advice.

This is a really good apartment in a cool urban area of Melbourne. Great use of space. But it is in an area that is being regenerated, and is in a converted factory which is shabby chic, so it won't be to everyone's taste. We loved it.

We had a great stay in Zoe's historic warehouse apartment and loved the communal walkways - very Blade Runner! The apartment was very comfortable and close to both Brunswick and Smith Street and all the bars, cafes and specialist shops that Fitzroy offers. The large walk-in shower was fabulous and our daughter stayed a couple of nights on the fold-out bed downstairs. There was plenty of hanging space and shelves for clothing etc and the kitchen was well equipped. Although we didn't hire a car on this visit, it was great to know that a garage space was included with the listing. Zoe was a very helpful host and ensured that we had everything we needed. We also loved the vintage MacRobertson's chocolate boxes and framed adverts that Zoe had used to decorate the apartment, in homage to the factory's original owners. All in all a great quirky and original space.

Zoe's airbnb is in the heart of Fitzroy, walkable to every coffee shop and restaurant you could ever desire. The TV setup and wifi access were great for evenings at home and the kitchen had everything you need to make a great meal. Zoe was very attentive to any questions or queries we had. I would be more than happy to stay here again! Thank you!
