Airbnb guests can relax in this casually stylish apartment and enjoy the beach panorama. The apartment is light, colourful, uncluttered and situated on the third floor of a prestigious apartment building. The neighbourhood will welcome you. St Kilda has it all.

The space

My third floor apartment is on famous St Kilda beach facing the St Kilda pier, the marina and Port Phillip Bay.
You can sit on the balcony and watch the kite surfers or simply watch the magnificent panorama.

The guest bedroom has a double bed with top quality bedding - double electric blanket for winter with a cosy quilt and alpaca rugs.
For summer - a cotton blanket, quality sheets and pillows.

The room has ample cupboard space, bedside lamps, book shelves with storage and hanging space, décor in fresh greens and blues, television and more than enough books and magazines to read.

From the bedroom window there is a skyline view of the city. My apartment is second last along the walkway so the room is private, quiet and very safe and comfortable.

Guests have their own fully stocked bathroom with Turkish or traditional bath towels, hand towels and bathmat, shower gel, hand cream and body lotion.
The bathroom consists of a toilet, shower recess, handbasin with mirror.

Guests are welcome to use the kitchen, living area.

The living area is modern, light, stylish. The white kitchen has welcoming wide bench space, a mirror splash-back reflecting the beach views giving unlimited light to the living area.

I am an easy going host. I know Melbourne very well so it is a great pleasure to meet travellers and share in the excitement of discovering a city that the citizens of Melbourne so love.

WiFi is available to guests and there is parking space for one car. A beach pavilion opposite on the beach serves excellent coffee, cold beer, good wines and great seafood including classic fish and chips.

A ten minute walk and you are at the centre of beautiful, colourful St Kilda with its stunning beach front, cafes, bars, restaurants. Walk along the pier and you may be lucky to see the resident penguins. Across the road is Luna Park for fun and old style amusements and the much loved Palais Theatre.

A tram stop is a minute's walk away. Tram No. (URL HIDDEN) to the city is about twenty five minutes leisurely ride. The trams are a much loved feature of this elegant city.

St Kilda is one of the premier beach playgrounds of Australia and you are guaranteed a stay that will remain with you always.

Guest access

Guests have access to car park space for one car.

Interaction with guests

I interact with my guests in a friendly manner but I am very aware of their desire for privacy.

International visitors are often jet lagged when they arrive at my apartment so I am very respectful of their tiredness and disorientation.
International flights arrive in the early morning so guests are most welcome to check in when they leave the airport.


Other things to note

If travellers wish to know personal recommendations regarding sightseeing I am most happy to help them.

I can also recommend Airbnb accommodation at the Great Ocean Road. This magnificent region is far better enjoyed with an overnight stop. It is an enormous distance to travel in one day and not recommended.

A journey to the glorious wine region of the Mornington Peninsula can be enhanced with an overnight stay in recommended Airbnb accommodation.

For visitors with specific travel queries I will do my best to assist as I have had extensive travel experience both domestic and international.

I had an amazing time with Dorothy- a true melbournian, who was often more like a caring mother than an AirBnB host! The apartment is beautiful and so well kept. I will definitely be back when I am next in Melbourne!

We loved staying with Dorothy who is great fun and a real character. Dorothy made us feel very welcome and was very helpful and friendly. Dorothy's home is in a superb location, right on the sea front, which gives fabulous sea views. Dorothy's home is a very special place, it feels very comfortable and luxurious.

We just had 5 night stay with Dorothy and had a great time. Her apartment is wonderful, and very well located for tram to and from city. Plus only a short walk to many bars and restaurants of St Kilda. The beach is literally across the road. We had some lovely chats with her and was great to hear her amazing life experiences. All in all a wonderful place and a wonderful lady.

Great location for either easy tram access to the city or perfect for the beach. Dorothy is the perfect host, she made me feel at home from the moment I arrived. Dorothy took the time to show me around the neighbourhood and where to catch the tram, left maps and either information in my room and was happy to share ideas of what to visit during my stay. I would recommend staying with Dorothy as she makes you feel comfortable from the minute you arrive, this is a great location for a stay in Melbourne

Dorothy is a first class Airbnb host who immediately makes guests feel welcome and relaxed in her beautiful apartment. Everything is immaculate and we particularly enjoyed the amazing sunset views over the bay. The location is convenient either for trams into the city or for the beach and pier. Dorothy is an interesting person to chat with and we enjoyed her company, but she also respected our privacy. This was one of our best Airbnb stays and we would certainly recommend it if you are planning a trip to the area.

Response from Dorothy:
Good suggestion about building name and numbers. I shall do that when I have confirmed the booking. Not wise to have my address in the general listing. Many thanks for suggestion.

I am from Melbourne Australia.

Am very fit and have travelled extensively all over the world. Music is important to me. I live in a very attractive, relaxed, friendly apartment community. I enjoy good conversation about local and international affairs and am a keen film goer. Enjoy a good book. Sing with gospel/blues choir.
My apartment has a swimming pool and tennis court and glorious views of famous St Kilda beach.

If guests wish to visit the Great Ocean Road I can recommend and assist with accommodation and sightseeing through personal contacts.

Am looking forward to welcoming Airbnb travellers and sharing my beautiful apartment and the energy of interesting St Kilda with them.
