A little hidden gem in a quiet street in beautiful South Yarra. I had breakfast each morning at the deli downstairs. Delicious. Apartment is exactly as pictures depicted. Definitely recommend for a couple.

Everything about this stay has been wonderful. Bronwyn gave thorough instructions via e mail prior to our late night arrival. After our long flight from the UK her instructions made finding the place/keys a breeze. I believe she would have greeted us also had it not been the middle of the night! Throughout our stay bronwyn has kept in touch regarding anything we have needed. We required an extra few nights stay and bronwyn was more than helpful in arranging this. The apartment is beautiful. There are all the cooking facilities you should need, the shower is great, and bedroom comfy. There are a couple of little heaters which have been good to use during the chilly weather too. Perfect location. Can walk everywhere. Delicious breakfast and coffee downstairs. Would highly recommend staying.

We stayed a couple of months in Bronwyn's flat, which must be the best value you can get in Melbourne. Great location right near the Yarra river within walking distance of the botanical gardens and CBD. The apartment is pleasant and functional with nice views, we thoroughly enjoyed it. Bronwyn was lovely and went out of her way to make sure everything was in order. Super recommended!

We stayed in Bronwyns lovely art deco apartment for a few months and absolutely loved it! What more could you ask for, right on the banks of the Yarra, a short stroll into the city along the lovely Yarra walking trail and a yummy cafe downstairs for your morning coffee! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and Bronwyn was excellent in responding to any questions during our stay. If you're looking to be apart of what makes Melbourne the most liveable city in the world and a home away from home, then look no further! The apartment is a short walk to the restaurant hub of Richmond as well a short stroll to the very popular Chapel Street. Thank you for a wonderful stay, we will be back! :)

Bronwyn was very helpful in welcoming us to her flat and responding so promptly to text messages. She showed us her property and explained how things worked, which complemented the helpful notes she left. She also gave us help in orientating ourselves on our first visit to Melbourne. The flat is set in a cosy neighbourhood with walking access to the city via the nearby Botanical Gardens and the Yarra River walk. There is also a very nice cafe just metres away from the apartment that serves good coffee and food as well as having free wifi. Shops are around 10/15 minutes away on Torak Road, as is the nearest rail station. The sports sector (including the world-renowned Melbourne Cricket Ground) is fairly close by. The property was very comfortable and more than met the description of the accommodation and facilities and was actually brighter and lighter than was suggested by the photos. We would be happy to stay there again.

My partner and I stayed at Bronwyn's place for several weeks while we looked for a long-term rental property in Melbourne, and it was exactly what we were after - a quiet, comfortable, and clean space, with lots of natural light, fast wifi, and opportunities for cooking. The apartment is also within close proximity to many cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, and public transport options. Bronwyn was incredibly communicative with us before, during, and even after our stay, and made sure that our time in the apartment was comfortable and without any issues. I would definitely recommend staying at Bronwyn's place - it's an ideal base to explore the wonderful city that is Melbourne.
