About this listing
Stylish large 2 storey apartment in the heart of Carlton; a stylish & comfortable home, minutes walk to downtown (CBD) - Your private escape in the middle of it all.
Close to Lygon St, exhibition building, Melbourne University, RMIT, Royal Melbourne Hospitals and more!
Two bedrooms each with a queen bed (for up to 2 people in each room) and a separate open loft style area upstairs with one sofa bed (for one person - king single).
On request, I can also set up the premium queen air mattress to accommodate one more person.
(The max people is 6 people in the apartment).
Two lovely lounge areas and two balconies that are exclusive to you in the apartment only (no need to share with the neighbours!)- the large balcony out the back is great for lounging around with a book, a drink or some music.
Bathroom is a shower and bathtub.
Laundry in the apartment includes washing machine and dryer.
WIFI throughout the house.
Fully equipped kitchen - but why cook when you can just take a few steps down famous Lygon street to enjoy the many restaurants!
Please note that this apartment is the top two floors of the 3-storey apartment building. There is stair access only (24 hour access).... 3 flights of stairs.... I won't pretend it is fun to carry luggage upstairs - but I like to think that the better view from the balconies makes it worth the effort!
You will have access to the whole home, including 2 private balconies (even the neighbours are envious!). There is an internal laundry and fully equipped kitchen.
Interaction with guests
I will be available to answer any questions you have and you will be greeted by me or my sister on arrival and shown around the house. If you need to work the TV, the air conditioning, the washing machine or the oven - no problem. You will have instruction sheets to answer your questions AND you can call or message me if you ever need help!
Carlton is located at the beginning of downtown Melbourne - a ten minute walk to the city centre, with parks and restaurants and a vibrant lifestyle literally around the corner from the home!
Great access to trains, trams and buses.
I typically walk everywhere as this inner city suburb of Carlton is in the perfect spot.
Some distances to local attractions:
Queen Victoria Market: 1.3 km (about 15 min walk)
Federation Square: 2km (about 25 min walk, or 7-10 minutes by tram around the corner)
Lygon St - all the famous Italian restaurants: 1 minute walk
Swanston St: 1 minute walk
The University of Melbourne: 1 minute walk to the main campus
Old Melbourne Gaol: 0.8 km (10 minute walk)
This is my home and I take care of it, so please treat it as you would your own :)
NO SMOKING: This a no smoking house. Smoking can occur on the balconies, provided that the doors are closed and smoke does not enter the house. And please dispose of your cigarette butts securely.
I do not rent out my house for parties. So please, no parties. Registered guests can sleep at the apartment only. Please let me know who will be checking in with you :)
I'm an avid traveller when possible, and an IT lawyer the rest of the time. Airbnb provides a whole different angle to the travel experience that I love - the local touch and comfort!
