About this listing

Truly unique inner-city oasis only one block from Swanston Street, with a comfortable, friendly household environment. This is a queen-bed room in a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom warehouse conversion, with a private garden courtyard and direct street access. This corner of the CBD is mainly residential and has a unique neighbourhood atmosphere, while being right in the middle of everything the city has to offer.

The space

It doesn't get much more inner city than this!

This is one of two queen bedrooms available in this 240 sq.m two-storey warehouse conversion that even has it's own backyard. These rooms, which share one large bathroom, are well sized and fully furnished, including BIRs.
(Bedroom #1 can be booked via http://www.airbnb.com/rooms/307615?preview=true)

Guests have access to the whole house and all facilities - including a full kitchen, separate laundry, large rear courtyard, large living and dining areas. WiFi is available and a laptop PC is also available if needed.

There are hundreds of books to read and DVDs to watch - but you'll be far too busy - as the house is only minutes walk from Melbourne's best restaurants, bars, galleries, gardens and shopping; including the Victoria Market.

The house is occupied by myself and one very laid back dog called Roger, as well as any other guests. Please note that this is a 30 year old conversion in a 150+ year old building so not everything is 'shiny and new'; it is however very large and comfortable. Cheaper rates for weekly and monthly rental are available, and should apply automatically through the booking form.

Trams and trains are right outside and the area is serviced by a number of airport bus services. There is no parking attached however there are two commercial parking facilities within 50 metres and several more within a block or two (be very careful if trying to park on the street in Melbourne, as there are tow-away zones which change during the day).

Sharyn has a really nice place to stay in. It is located just behind the state library and 3 mins walk to Melbourne Central. Love the place and time I was there.

Sharyn's place was situated at a very convenient location within the CBD. It is very convenient to eat, shop and find tours within walking distance. Sharyn is extremely helpful and nice towards her guests. Detailed suggestions are provided towards our various questions in the trip. We would like to sincerely thanks for all assistances, no matter regarding the stay, trip planning, or things to eat. The dog Bobby is very friendly to guests too!

Sharyn was an excellent host and the apartment is lovely to stay in. The location is right in the heart of the city and incredibly easy to get to public transport and restaurants. Sharyn was a huge help too with letting us know how to get places and where the best restaurants and locations are. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Busy, laid back, shopaholic and very social. I holiday whenever I can afford to and travel internationally at least once a year. I spend a fair bit of time walking my dog and pretending to get fit. I am an IT consultant, so I work from home much of the time.

Must have: Good wine, coffee, music, books (and ear plugs for sleeping)

Can totally do without: reality tv, talkback radio, backpacking and bad food.

Next holiday: Bali (again)
My motto: Does it come in red?
My other motto: Life is short, buy the shoes!
