My place is in a terrific location right downtown - it's across the street from The Melbourne Visitors Centre, Flinders Street Station & Federation Square. It's within the Free Tram Zone & overlooks the fabulous Degraves Street. It's within walking distance of the MCG, Rod Laver Arena, Yarra River, Botanical Gardens, National Gallery, Southern Cross Station & Etihad Stadium. A supermarket is next door. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).

Just as described. Very quiet yet in such a central location. The place felt very secure and had everything you could need. Thank you very much for such a care-free stay.

Sue made me feel incredibly welcome and had several 'soft touches' to the flat that made me feel quite at home. The location is superb literally across the street from Flinders Street station and ideal for all things CBD. High enough for external privacy, only got woken once by recycling collection at 6am but then so did 100 other flats on the block so nothing you wouldn't expect! I genuinely felt like I was at home and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Any time I was tired it felt like I was always 15 minutes or less from being able to rest, great stuff.

Right in the centre of Melbourne, good selection of restaurants within a five minute's walk. Apartment was clean and as described, and a very accommodating host. There is some traffic noise, of course, being in the centre, but the place was comfortable and as described.

This is a fabulous apartment and as the expression goes location, location, location is appropriate here. My girlfriend and I recently spent 4 nights here. We wanted a place Central to lots of popular places in Melbourne that we could walk to or at least only be a short tram/train ride to. The beds were awesome, so comfy, would have been easy to sleep in. Staying in this apartment covers all areas, clean, great location, quiet, and an awesome host. Finally our lovely host. Sue met us happily at the apartment and our flights were late which meant it put us behind the nominated time we were to arrive. She showed us around, gave us hints on places of interest and also had brochures that were things to do while in Melbourne. We had a few questions on how to get to places and was very happy to help. Sue alone should be given "5" stars for being a fabulous host. Thanks Sue.
