About this listing
This sleek, stylish studio apartment has everything you could hope for in a holiday rental.
Luxury linens and soft fluffy towels offer a touch indulgence.
State of the art electronics including free WiFi, 32" flat-screen Sony TV, Blu-Ray DVD player and SoundFreaq docking station ensure 'home' entertainment is of the highest quality.
The fully equipped kitchenette including double gas-burner, electric oven and grill, microwave and dishwasher makes it easy to rustle up in house meals and a washing machine covers any laundry needs.
The light, airy space also boasts a beautifully open balcony; the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine against a backdrop of blue skies and St Kilda skyline.
Located on the second floor the studio is serviced by a lift as well as a video entry intercom system.
When you are ready to step out, you could not be closer to the heart of St.Kilda. Less than 100m from the beach, less than 50m from the restaurants, bars, cafes and shops of Acland St and in full view of Luna Park the boutique Shakespeare apartments really do boast an enviable position.
Made only better by the fact that central Melbourne and the city's major attractions can easily be reached by a short tram journey.
Come to St Kilda and enjoy yourself!
In doing so please be respectful of our space.
We are happy to share the books, DVD's and magazines in the apartment and book swapping is more than acceptable but please remember that the guests that will follow you may also enjoy the movies on offer.
If anything is broken or needs replacing please let us know. These things happen and we can only get it fixed if you keep us informed.
And, of course please remember this is a no-smoking venue.
Well what a great location, close to shops and trams, we arrived late Friday night which wasn't a problem, Jack went out of her way to make us feel welcome, communication between Jack and myself was fantastic
This is a very clean, comfortable and cozy studio in buzzing St Kilda with a friendly and helpful host....would definitely stay here again.... it's a great location..we loved being close to the beach, great coffee and eating places close by...trams almost at the doorstep to take us anywhere we needed to go....the unit is on the second floor and very quiet. Thanks Jack for a great long weekend away.
What a gem! Great instructions, lots of extras, sparkling clean - and the one issue we did have was rectified immediately and with a smile. Can't fault the service or apartment - and as for the location, suffice to say you would not do better. Supermarket right next door, Acland Street and beach on your doorstep, and heaps of very reasonably priced parking right outside the door. In the apartment, Jack has lovely homey touches like a good selection of books and DVDs to enjoy, ample heating, and very comfy bed. Oh, and big plushy towels and a rainwater shower head! We are looking forward to staying here again soon. Thanks Jack for a wonderful experience.
A great, convenient location. Easy to find and access via the Airporter Service (FAPAS) to St Kilda and the trams to and from central Melbourne.
Great place! Was very convenient.
Value for the money.
Close to the city and there are many food options near the apartment.
There is a woolies n bws near the place.
Recommended without any hesitation.
The studio was comfortable and kept us warm the three nights we spent there. We used the kitchenette and were very pleased that it had everything we needed. It's also located in a very accessible area with Coles and Woolworths a short walking distance away. If you're driving, parking space in the vicinity is easily available. We had some problem trying to close the toilet door but this was attended to by Jack immediately. We also had an early flight arrival and Jack accommodated by allowing an early check-in at a small fee. This saved us a lot of time. Overall, it was a trouble-free, comfortable and warm stay.
Jack kept in touch and kindly dropped the key at my daughters place near by for our stay. The studio apartment was clean, had a comfortable bed, was modern and we enjoyed all the extras that made it homely. It has everything you need and is in a great part of town. We would definately stay again if required. Thanks for the stay.

About the Host, Jack
An English girl abroad I first visited Australia in 2008. My then 4 year old daughter and I toured the East coast in a camper van and completely fell in love with this gloriously laid-back country. Melbourne became our home over 6 years ago and I have to say, I love this place.
I love the beach, I love the creativity you find within every nook and cranny of this city, I love the coffee, the cheap eats and cafes, the fancy restaurants and global cuisines. I love the markets, the lost afternoons at the park with the kids, I love the stunning views offered by a walk around the famous Albert Park lake, the glorious summer days and the rugged up winters but most of all I love sharing it, enjoying Melbourne with family, friends, sharing her secrets with visitors.
As your host I am more than happy to offer as much help and advice as I can to help you get the best from your time here in St Kilda and Melbourne. I hope that our studio provides everything you may need during your stay and I trust that you will call if there is anything further we can do.
