Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Extremely well appointed and well managed accommodation in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne. The units are nestled amongst lush gardens and have lovely outdoor space that takes advantage of those gardens. The apartments are very comfortable, spotless and have everything you need. My niece and I were based there for over a month with my sister as we managed my sister’s medical treatments at a nearby hospital. Henriette and Sean bent over backwards to make our stay as stress free and easy as possible. I would definitely stay here again.

Property's Favourite Review
Undoubtedly one of the best destinations for family stays in the Melbourne area! As we traveled from France to attend a wedding, Bungunyah Apartments provided us with an exceptional two-week experience. The villas, each with its own private garden oasis, offered ample space and tranquility for our large family. The impeccable cleanliness was evident in every aspect of the accommodations. Throughout our stay, the staff maintained excellent communication, addressing our requests promptly and thoughtfully. We wholeheartedly commend the entire team at Bungunyah Apartments for creating such a memorable and comfortable home away from home. Thank you again!

We thank you so much for such an amazing and thoughtful review. It was our absolute pleasure to accommodate your family during this exciting time. We are so pleased that you found the Villas worked well and having multiple Villas close together no doubt enabled you to have lots of lovely family time. Thank you for booking it so far in advance and being so organised as that enabled us to do our job easily too! Any time you or any other members of your family would like to come back and stay please let me know as we will make sure they are well looked after. Again many thanks Henriette

Our second stay at Bungunyah was equally enjoyable as the previous stay 5 months ago. The Margriet was very comfortable, with every amenity to ensure the 'home away from home' feeling. Henriette, a top manager and contact, is very helpful and courteous, and strives to ensure a memorable stay through her inputs. The property is beautifully located in the eastern suburbs, close to public transport and necessary shopping. We love this accommodation and hope to be able to avail ourselves of it again on another of our visits to Melbourne.

Excellent experience, everything was provided, and everything worked! Good location for us, loved that we weren’t hassled by anyone. Check in and out was done independently. It really was like home away from home.

I recommend Bungunyah apartments for your next short-term stay needs in the Croydon area. We stayed in the one-bedroom apartment. It was well set up and had all that is needed for a comfortable stay. The location gives easy access to Croydon and Mooroolbark areas.

Beautiful, well equipped, very friendly staff. I wish we had more time to stay and explore surrounding area. Close to supermarket and shopping centres. My bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in.

It is really wonderful to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us given it was not as long as you would have liked and hopefully next time you can stay for a longer period of time. I will definitely pass on your remarks to Sean regarding the bed as he brought that one in from overseas to see how it compared with locally sourced ones. All the best and take care and many thanks Henriette
