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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

Eugenie's place was an amazing, cozy home in the city. Clean, comfortable and with everything thought of

Apart from the super sensitive smoke alarm ( we were warned) it was a great stay in all respects

You couldn't asked for anything more. The quite little apartment is well equipped and has everything you need (and more). Eugenie has put so much effort into thoughtful details, great communication and service that it has made our stay very enjoyable & comfortable. Thanks so much for having us. It has been wonderful.

Eugenie's place is right in Centre of Melbourne City but very quiet and peaceful. No road noise or loud neighbours or night clubs. Everything is so close by restaurants, shopping, tourist spots and so easy to get to especially if you catch Skybus from airport to Southern Cross then a quick free tram up Bourke Street and your there. Communication was instant, keys and access available when required and lots of little treats. The unit was spotless, the bed super comfortable and as building is not a skyscraper there was never a time we had to wait for lifts. We will definitely return!

Fantastic apartment - perfect location, quiet at night yet at the bottom of the elevator you're right in the middle of the city. Couldn't fault it and will definitely be looking for it again on my next trip.

We had a great stay and thank Eugenie very much for going above and beyond for us with food and bathroom products. Plus the bed was better than my own at home!

An absolute gem. It was our first time in Melbourne and the apartment was perfect, close to shops and bars but also quiet at night. Would definitely stay here again for our next trip.
