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.
From Aug 2 - Sep 6, 2015 the minimum stay is 7 nights.
We really enjoyed our stay at Jack's apartment which we found to be, if anything, nicer than described in the listing. It met our needs completely - we loved sitting in the morning sun on the balcony each day before going out into one of our favourite parts of Melbourne. There is so much choice for wining and dining within easy walking distance.
The apartment is very thoughtfully equipped, and is surprisingly quiet.
We arrived tired and a bit stressed after our journey and our host made us feel welcome immediately. Thanks for a lovely stay, we would definitely come again. Great value and location.
Jack was an absolutely amazing and professional host. She went above and beyond our expectations and her prompt, friendly communication was brilliant. The studio apartment was extremely clean, convenient, and perfectly located in St Kilda. While super central, it is a quiet and relaxing place to stay. We would highly recommend others to stay here and will happily return ourselves! Thank you Jack for a wonderful airB&B experience!
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at this studio apartment. It has everything that we expected. The apartment situated at the very best place of St Kilda with walking distance to tram stations and restaurants. Not to mentioned the beautiful St Kilda beach and esplanade that me, my wife and my 2 years old son enjoyed so much. Jack has communicated with us very well prior to our arrival. She was also able to accomodate our last minute change to arrival time due to changes in our travel plan. She and her kids met my wife and even help her with our luggages. My wife appreciated that very much. The appartment is as advertised and has been upgraded with full wifi service and Jack also provided a myki card during our stay. Our overall holiday experience in Melbourne is wonderful and staying at this apartment make it a much sweeter memories.
Very good experience. Host was responsive and helpful; the facility was attractive with lots of features; location is exceptional. Adjacent Lunar Park/Palais Theatre, corner of Ackland, beach and tram stop in easy reach.
Jack was always on time, she was friendly, helpful and informative :) the apartment is in a perfect location next to Acland Street and woolworths super market and very close to the best part of St Kilda beach! The apartment was ideal, very clean and spacious for a studio with a super comfortable bed. I would certainly stay again and recommend to others!
This was our second stay - which surely proves what a great place this is. Jack greeted us not as a host but as an old friend.
I cannot rate this apartment or Jack highly enough!!

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.
