You will be sharing the apartment with me and my husband. We are a Chinese/Australian couple lived, worked and traveled throughout Asia, Europe, North America, Africa and Australia&NZ before settling down in my husband's hometown, Melbourne. We love different culture, people, language and we enjoy good food, wine and company. We are happy to answer any question you have about your stay or things to see and do in Melbourne and Australia. This is our first home purchased together as a married couple. We hope you enjoy the property as much as we do and we look forward to hosting you soon. :)
Nice, clean, quiet place to stay. Really well located, just a pleasant 10 minute walk across the river from the CBD or you can take a stroll along the Southbank promenade. Eva and Todd were also pleasant and helpful. Would definitely stay here if I were ever in Melbourne again.
Eva and Todd were great hosts! After a mix-up with the dates, which I admittedly caused, they were nothing short of gracious in how they handled it. Also, the location is PERFECT. Just close enough to the city center but far enough to be able to take a breather after a long day of touring. HIGHLY recommend it.
It is an amazing location near the Arts Centre Melbourne, where you have breathtaking views from the living room's window. The hosts are lovely and help you always no matter which need you might have. In addition I enjoyed the building's sport offer with a relaxing swim in the pool.
The city centre is in 10 min walking distance. An insiders' tip is the coffee in front of the Arts centre which is sold in the morning on the street.
During the stay you experience how it is to live in Melbourne in the best way. Spending the time there was a pleasure and would have liked to stay longer.
I can't express how wonderful of an experience we had while staying at eva and todd's apartment. The space was very nice and spacious, clean and quiet. It is located in a great spot. Eva and Todd was a very nice and generous host
Eva herself was punctual, friendly and replied quickly to my text messages confirming the reservation and check-in time.
We were invited to have dinner together . Todd is a great chefs and he cook an excellent dinner, delicious then the five-star hotel, me and my wife enjoy so much!
We live here for five days and next time I would absolutely book them again and recommend it to others.
Really loved Eva and Todds apartment. Highly recommended. The views from the lounge and dining were amazing. The room is very comfortable, amazing sheets adjoining bathroom which is very nice. Would return without a doubt. Thanks for having me.
Eva's place was practically located in CBD and was really close to spots like Flinder's street station and Federation Square. Also, the place was neat, clean and comfy.
Eva and Todd's place was exactly as represented. They have an amazing modern, minimalist residence in a new high rise that's in a perfect location... Close to CBD, the Yarra boardwalk, Federation Square, and the arts district. Everything was very clean and comfortable. It was fun to see what high-rise living is like. Eva and Todd were very helpful, friendly and kind. I wish I could have stayed longer.
We stayed 3 nights by Eva's place at beginnning of march. The building and the appartament are very nice with a wonderful view of the city. The room and the bathroom are spacious.
The only thing we didn't like is that it's not specified that the room doesn't have a proper window, but a fixed white glass window towards the foyer.
We stayed at Eva's beautiful apartment for 4 nights on our first trip to Melbourne. The apartment and room was spotless and the bed was unbelievably comfortable! Located in the heart of Southbank the building is extremely close to everything and offers a unforgettable view of South Melbourne. Unfortunately we didn't get to spend much time with Eva as we had our days jam packed with activities but would definitely stay again if we return to Melbourne!
Thanks Jason for the lovely review ! It was so nice meeting you guys as well and it was a pity we were all super busy and didn't get the chance to get to know each other more. Hope you enjoyed your Aussie holiday and arrived back to Spain safe and sound. :) We'd love to host you guys again next time you are in Melbourne ! Just give us a buzz ! Take care !
Very warm welcome and the room is excellent! Very clean and well equipped bedroom and bathroom. Everything you need is present and the hosts are there to help you to find the right things to do. Perfect location to visit Melbourne by foot, or make use of the public transport. We've did everything by foot or bike and it's just perfect!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
