a perfect apartment. Very clean, everything there I needed to feel like being at home. I will certainly come back to this Apartment when I am in Melbourne again. Thanks also to Max for his quick help when calling. Anja
This apartment was the perfect answer to a temporary long term relocation from Brisbane to Melbourne for work. the management team are BEYOND helpful,
Pet Friendly and perfectly styled to feel like you're at home in a little sanctuary while outside the Bustling life of St Kilda is every where.
Close to everything from great food, transport and the beach as well as so many parks and the botanical gardens. I'm definitely sad to say goodbye to my home away from home.
The apartment is nicely designed with good taste. The location is great. We enjoyed the short distance to restaurants and the beach likewise. By tram, it takes 20-30 min to the city. Kitchen equipment is fully functional and maintained. Management is very responsive, as we asked for beach towels which were sent a day later.
It was not as clean as we would have expected it when we arrived (e.g. corners were not dusted for a very long time, likewise the coffee maker. There were dirty footprints on the kitchen floor ...). Fair to say that Chris (owner) offered to send the cleaners right away, but at that moment we had decided to give it a good swipe ourselves. Also we found that some chairs were almost falling apart, as some screws were lose. Should be checked.
The sofa bed is almost impossible to sleep on. The mattress is old and very poor. Our oldest (9yrs) refused to sleep on it. He slept on the floor. For an adult, (or even two) the sofa is a nightmare. The other (real bed) is ok.
Another downside was the lack of light. There is no view at all, as the windows face the building next door, 5 m away. On rainy days in particular, the place is very dark and gloomy. We had the lights on all the time.
Sofa and lack of light are the main reason for the average rating. I guess, for two people for 2-3 days it is ok, but not for a family of four for a whole week.
We had a fantastic stay. Apartment was great and we would recommend it to all our family and friends.
