About this listing
Stay in the absolute centre of Melbourne in this comfortable, near new, very clean and chic apartment. Steps from the tram (free, and straight from the Skybus drop off), very close to the Bourke Street Mall (Melbourne's central shopping precinct) and at the Paris End of the CBD, with theatres, fine dining, cafés, and China Town nearby. Walk to everything, then escape to the calm and quiet of this laneway retreat.
This brilliantly located apartment has everything you'll need to stay comfortably and safely in the heart of the world's most liveable city. A few steps up Bourke Street from The Mall, and hidden down a quiet and quirky Melbourne Laneway, you can walk to anywhere, or take the free tram from the end of your lane. Interesting cafés and designer shops on the ground floor of the building, very quiet location, double glazed windows, and complete safety via the triple stage building security. Clean, practical, well equipped and easy.
You'll have full and private access to the apartment for the duration of your stay.
Interaction with guests
I respond to Airbnb messages immediately, and am always available if you want tips, advice or help. Otherwise, I'll leave you to enjoy the apartment as if it is your own, and Melbourne as if you live here.
Other things to note
There will be plenty of clean towels, body and hand wash, and shampoo and conditioner for you to use, plus a cabinet full of toothpaste, makeup remover, moisturiser, some hair products, tampons, condoms, etc, in case you've forgotten an essential.
The kitchen has everything you'll want for cooking meals; a full sized oven, glass cooktop, single drawer dishwasher, rice cooker, microwave, full sized fridge, pots and pans, utensils, a pantry with some staples. Don't plan too much cooking though - you're staying in the middle of Melbourne!
There is a Nespresso coffee machine and pods, a brimming bowl of coffee sachets, tea bags, hot chocolate chai, etc, on the bench, some cereals and snacks in the pantry, and fresh milk, butter, filtered water and a sneaky wine in the fridge.
Please note the bed configuration is one Miracoil pillow top queen sized bed in the separate bedroom. Third and forth guests sleep on the long couch, and/or the raised air-bed, which I will have made up for you with quality linen, donnas, etc. If you are a twosome and require separate beds please contact me for pricing.
Please take good care of the apartment, it's fixtures and fittings, and report any damage or concerns as soon as they are evident. Unreported breakages or significant mis-use repair costs will be deducted from your security deposit.
Please turn lights and heater or air-con off as you leave, take all your belongings, and leave the apartment as close as possible to the state you found it in.
The apartment swipe key and magnetic fob are very particularly recorded and programmed, toward providing high level security. Both are expensive and time consuming to replace, and loses will incur a $100 deduction from your security bond. Please be careful!
Only booked guests may stay in the apartment. No extra guests without prior arrangement, and certainly no parties.
Strictly no smoking in the apartment (ok on the balcony, and please close the door).
Cancel up to 5 days before your trip and get a full refund. Cancel within 5 days of your trip and the first night is non-refundable, but 50% of the cost for the remaining nights will be refunded.
