“Great Comfort & Location, Very Well Equipped for Family Stay”
Reviewed 11 March 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We are a family of 4 including teenager and toddler who stayed at this property for 2 weeks. The Loft was really one of the most enjoyable vacation rentals we have ever stayed in, the Owners are very thoughtful to equip it with everything you need for a home-like stay, right down to sugar, olive oil, coffee and tea, and even placed a fresh loaf of bread, butter and milk as we had arrived very late the next day. It is steps away from Brunswick Street which has great bohemian cafes, restaurants and choice of supermarkets, plus our toddler loved the Edinburgh Gardens nearby with its 2 playgrounds which was great for picnics. The location was also great for us to drive to the Eastern suburbs, beaches and city as it is close to the highway and gas station. The on-street parking permit was very handy as well, especially as we found that parking in the Melbourne downtown is super expensive, we could leave the rental car to catch a tram downtown as The Loft is well served by bus and tram. We never met the owner Katrina in person, but she was only an email or SMS away for any help needed. Will definitely return to stay again on our next visit to Melbourne and we highly recommend The Loft as a home away from home in Melbourne!

“Great little place with all comforts of home, in a great location.”
Reviewed 13 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

We loved our time at The Loft. Two adults and three children fitted in comfortably and we had all the comforts of home whilst on hioliday. Would recommend it is a an ideal place to stay and better than a motel for a family, where a little bit of space on holiday is good.

“Amazing house with everything you need for a great stay!”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This is a perfect place to stay in Melbourne if you want more than just a hotel room.

The Loft feels like a home away from home with everything you need. It was great to have a dishwasher, washing machine, BBQ, WIFI and a garden!

Would recommend for couples, friends, families

Its so refreshing to stay somewhere which is exactly as described and pictured!

Katrina was great when we were booking - my partner and I stayed in one room and we didn't know how many friends were joining but she let us add a pull-out bed at the last minute! So accommodating and easy to deal with. She also responded so quickly to emails which is always useful when trying to plan a holiday!

“A Gem of a Find in North Fitzroy”
Reviewed 14 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

This was a lovely little 'haven' to return to each day. We felt at home as soon as we walked in the door. Loved the quirkiness of the loft and it was spotless. Also loved the close vicinity to Brunswick St which was 'Shopping Heaven' for us as we came to Melbourne to find vintage and different clothing to what we have in Newcastle and Sydney.

“Perfect, Home away from home!!”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Our family had a wonderful time staying at the loft for a weekend away. With 2 young boys we needed somewhere that was just like home and we sure got it! Gorgeous, clean apartment with all the modern amenities. Could easily entertain downstairs while the kids slept soundly upstairs. Fantastic location. Owners lovely to deal with, nothing was too difficult. A lovely surprise to arrive to after a long day of driving and shopping was a fresh loaf of bread and milk which I had ran out of time to get for breakfast the following morning. Above and beyond!! A special touch that was very unexpected but made our lives so much easier. Thank you Katrina we will be back again.
