Wendy's AirBnB was absolutely beautiful and in a great part of St Kilda overlooking the beach. There are loads of good bars and restaurants in walking distance with a tram stop right in front of the house. Lucy the resident cat is an absolute darling, very friendly and loving, I will miss her. Any time I am back in St Kilda I will definitely be staying at Wendy's AirBnB. :-)

We loved the spacious, comfortable, homely beach penthouse with its spectacular views . Wendy was very welcoming and quick to respond and fix a technical problem. The location is ideal for both beach and city access - easy parking facilities and great cafes and shops within easy walking distance. We would love to stay here anytime we are in Melbourne.

I cannot speak highly enough of Wendy, the apartment, the location and Lucy the cat! The whole experience was better than I could have imagined. Walking distance to everything, fantastic food nearby, breathtaking view, spotlessly clean, everything was perfect. Wendy was so welcoming and great at communicating. You wont want to go home...we didnt!

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at this beautiful apartment in February. We were a group of 5, two couples and one of our really good friends. Wendy, Sam and Max were very generous with their home, encouraging guests to make good use of everything and enjoy living there as they themselves do. They had also left bread, milk and a bottle of champagne for us and lots of very helpful instructions about the place and surroundings. Absolutely beautiful views from the apartment, we really enjoyed the gorgeous outdoor area, especially in the evenings with the view of the water and the sky full of stars. The location of this place is highly recommended for any Melbourne visitors. The beach is right across the street, so as public transport (tram) and a conveniently located Taxi rank right outside the building as well. Plenty of food and bar options within few minutes of walking distance, we really enjoyed the pier area and the restaurants around the harbour. The place was super clean, very nicely decorated and the beds were super comfy. We highly recommend this place, it was a pleasure to stay here. We already miss Lucy the cat :-)

Wendy and team were great hosts. They made us all (2 adults with 2 teenage children ) feel very welcome. They went out of their way to make sure we had a good stay- we really appreciated this. The apartment is amazing. It is beautifully presented with lots of character. It has a modern kitchen and 3 modern bathrooms. The view is spectacular- the photos on the website can't do it justice. If you like St Kilda (as we do), you won't find a better location. My daughter enjoyed looking after Lucy the cat- we miss her now we are home. Bottom line- we loved it!!

I love living in St Kilda, it reflects all that I am, a complex mixture of contradictions in all things including; lifestyle choices, food, culture, spirituality and list goes on. Travel is one of the main things I love, as is being with close friends and family. Being an introvert, a secure and beautiful home base is a key to maintaining my sanity. I have travelled with my partner and sometimes with my teenage daughter, we love adventure- 2am on the NYC subway is not daunting. My work with autistic adults has taught me much about acceptance and respect. I am always learning and expanding my views on the world. Lucy (our cat) is a funny and interesting addition to my life and hopefully to yours too. I feel so blessed to live here.
