We have been staying at this accommodation for over 10 years now. They always go above and beyond with their service. Everything you need for a home style stay is provided, eg coffee machine, bread maker, sandwich toaster, full cooking appliances, rice cooker (salt/pepper, oil, paper towels, napkins, foil, cling wrap, picnic plates, large supplies on hand). If it’s not there they will supply. On top of all that you get accommodation that’s kept in immaculate condition, super clean, not like some of the other places we have stay at in the same area. Keep up the good work and we will see you in 2021. Karen, Bill & family

I booked this property through booking.com in March this year with free cancellation. Unfortunately had to cancel our trip to Melbourne, so cancelled our accomodation within the allowed period for free cancellation. At the time of booking, one nights accommodation was deducted from my credit card. No refund followed after cancelling. I have phoned the apartments contact on numerous occasions, sent several text messages and emails to have no response. I then proceeded to contact my bank for a refund, and they have now disputed the refund with my bank. According to my bank, this is a common occurrence with these people. They do not respond to your calls/texts/emails, however when it comes to the bank taking the money off them, they dispute it. The people running this accomodation are very sly. As soon as I booked through booking.com, I received an email from them asking me to cancel my booking.com booking and re-book directly with them and they would give me free parking. Free parking was included in my original booking. Hence to say I did not cancel and kept my original booking as I thought their email was unethical. Be warned, and do not book if you may need to cancel. I am still awaiting a refund.

We stayed recently - the fourth time - for the tennis. The apartment was clean and everything we could have needed was there. Paul was a great host there when you needed him. The cafes nearby are great for a morning coffee. Thanks for a great time.

Stayed for 5 nights recently with a friend while attending the Australian Open Tennis. Apartment was great! Clean, spacious and modern. Location in Docklands was good too and an easy tram ride into the city. Had a local Woolworths close by (walking distance) for supplies. Paul and Belinda were great hosts. Always answered my emails promptly and provided a good overview of the area and apartment on check in. A great pool in the complex also. Very happy with our stay and will definitely stay again if in the area. Highly recommend.
