Close to Lygon Street, Carlton Gardens, the Melbourne Museum, Chinatown, the Theatre District, the University and Hospital precincts and the CBD, my place is a fantastic base for exploring Melbourne.

It includes secure parking, and has all the amenities you might need whether you're visiting for a weekend or a week!

Please check out the HOUSE RULES section before sending inquiry. Many Frequently Asked Questions are answered there.

The space

My place is a large and light filled one bedroom apartment (with a bed topped with hotel quality linen, professionally cleaned after every stay). The unit also has a generous living area and separate study. Double doors in the lounge open onto a small courtyard bringing the outdoors inside. It's located within a small, secure apartment complex with intercom access and friendly neighbours.

You'll be close to some of Melbourne's nicest parks and gardens, the beautiful Exhibition Buildings and Melbourne Museum. You're also close to some of Melbourne's best food and nightlife districts including Brunswick St, Fitzroy, and the laneway bars of the CBD.

My place includes wifi, office with desk and printer/scanner/copier, laundry, clothes drier, ironing facilities, kitchen with microwave, oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher, aircon/heater and electric blankets for Melbourne's chillier winter nights.

My place runs on 100% renewable energy. We love recycling and we provide environmentally friendly cleaning and body products.

Guest access

Free secure underground parking is located beneath the complex with lift access to the apartment and street. Please note that the carpark entrance is tight and can only fit in small cars (I.e. sedan).

Street access is via a secure entrance off Little Cardigan Street.

Two sets of keys will be made available to you via a secure keysafe. Detailed instructions will be provided before your arrival, allowing you to check yourself in.

No shared amenities, the entire apartment is all yours to enjoy.

Fantastic apartment, extremely clean and comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place to anyone.

In a great location, so close to all the great restaurants of Lygon Street. A quick tram ride into the heart of the city was a bonus! The apartment was beautiful, with everything you could possibly want, to make your stay like being in a 5 star hotel, but with the added bonus of the coziness of a home. Highly recommended!

Beautiful, well-deisgned and central apartment in the heart of Melbourne. The apartment has all the qualities you need when visiting the city as it is close to public transport, easy to walk to many places and it is in a quiet little street away from the noise.

This apartment is in a fantastically central location to Lygon St, the Royal Exhibition Building and Melbourne Museum. It is also only a short walk into the CBD and Brunswick St. Tucked away on a back lane, there is no traffic noise, we found ourselves sleeping in! The space is perfect to spread out for a longer stay, my husband was able to bring his computer and work from the home office whilst I was working at the REB. The bed is wonderfully comfortable and warm. We had some very cold weather, whilst we were there, but the apartment soon warms up with the heater on. I highly recommend Angela's place for your Melbourne trip!

The location of Angela's place was perfect for us as we enjoy all that Lygon Street, Carlton has to offer as well as being able to walk into the CBD. Her place is just like a home and we felt at home in it. It was sunny but freezing in Melbourne during our stay but it was nice and warm in the apartment. My memories include a comfortable bed, a wifi that works, good tv reception, excellent location to food and coffee :) . Thanks Angela.

The location was beautifully located with shops and transport near by. Certainly the ideal place to stay if you're looking for for a quiet but central place to stay.

What an amazing stay in Melbourne! It was the perfect location, being walking distance to the city, Lygon St eateries and not much further to Fitzroy. The apartment itself was impeccably presented, thoroughly cleaned prior to our arrival and we were provided with more than required. The bed is very soft but otherwise comfortable if that's your preference. Comprehensive instructions from the hostkeep team made things very simple. We'll definitely consider staying here again for our next Melbourne trip!
