About this listing
A freshly renovated heritage apartment, in the historic 'Regent On Collins' building, very close to the corner of Melbourne's main thoroughfare Swanston Street. Enjoy this sophisticated Paris End location, with Ralph Lauren, Christian Dior and Gucci downstairs, the grand Regent Theatre next door, and fine dining, iconic cafés, and China Town within a block. Walk to everything, then escape to the calm and quiet of this lovely secure hideaway.
This brilliant located apartment has everything you'll need to stay comfortably and safely in the very centre of Melbourne. A few steps up Collins Street from the Town Hall, hidden behind a grand heritage facade, with designer fashion shops on either side of the front door, and free trams in all directions all day.
Triple stage security means complete safety, luxurious furnishings and style will make your hideaway a pleasure to return to each day, and my detailed house manual will more Melbourne City tips, recommendations, instructions and ideas than you will be able to manage in a week!
The kitchen is fully stainless steel with everything you could possibly need. The laundry is European, with ironing facilities, detergent and serious washing facilities. The bathroom is large, squeaky clean and fully stocked. The couch is feather and damask and ready to sink into. The library is good for a quiet weekend in. There are magazines, maps, TV, north facing windows, and a seafood restaurant outside the door that will bring dinner to you if you never want to leave.
You'll have full access to the entire apartment for the duration of your stay. I will meet you as you arrive, show you anything you'd like to know, tell you stuff about Melbourne until you stop me, and then leave you to enjoy your stay in complete privacy. I live one block away, and can be contacted at any time for help or more advice.
Interaction with guests
I respond to Airbnb messages immediately, and am always available if you want tips, advice or help. If you don't want any of that 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, gas cooktop, dishwasher, microwave, integrated fridge/freezer, pots and pans, utensils, and 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.
There is a full laundry.
There is a Juliet balcony to enjoy the northern sunshine.
Please note the bed configuration is one Miracoil pillow top bed ensemble in the separate bedroom. A third guest sleep on the raised air-bed in the lounge area, 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.
Only booked guests may stay in the apartment. No extra guests without prior arrangement, and certainly no parties.
Please respect my lovely neighbour's quiet enjoyment of their homes as you move through the passageway.
If you break something, please leave whatever you imagine it will cost me to repair or replace it, and I will be very grateful. Significant or unreported damages will be deducted from your security bond.
The 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!
I will appreciate you tidying and cleaning up the apartment as you depart.
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.
