Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Tom and Frances accommodated us with very little notice, for which we are very grateful. We arrived at 11.30pm to a very clean and comfortable apartment. We found it to be so handy to cafes, shops & train. We would definitely stay again.

  • Great location, it's a short walk to Chapel St and very near the train station so it's extremely convenient. We really enjoyed staying at Tom & Frances' place, it's neat and tidy, secure and had all the necessities. The host was contactable and returned text messages quickly.

    We would happily recommend and stay here again!

  • Their South Yarra apartment was perfectly located in a really nice suburb with Chapel St and public transport nearby. It's reasonably priced and ideal for two couples, a family with two kids or anyone wanting to head to Melbourne for sporting events - just a 5 minute drive from MCG/Olympic Park precinct. Tom was contactable and returned messages promptly. This was our first airbnb experience and we are extremely happy with our stay at their apartment. We thoroughly recommend staying here if you're heading to Melbourne. Overall experience 5 stars! Thanks Tom & Frances

  • Well situated apartment very close to public transportation. The apartment is occupied by the host when not rented through AIRBNB, so there are no closets or drawers available for guest use. There is one wall air conditioner in the LR, but it is not sufficient to adequately cool the entire 2 BR apt.

    January 2014
  • Great location for couples as it was walking distance to Chapel Street. The apartment was comfortable, secure with off street parking provided and had all the necessities. The hosts provided a map of all the important amenities in the local area, this was a very cute touch. The hosts were very welcoming and friendly to deal with.
    The apartment itself at first glance was neat and tidy and gave a very good first impression.

  • We stayed here with our 8 year old son for a week over Christmas. The flat is in a fantastic location - close to cool shops and cafes, and across the road from the train station, straight into Melbourne.

    The flat was comfortable and clean, and had all of the amenities that you might want, including a nespresso coffee machine!

    I thought it a little odd that the cupboards and fridge still had food in them; and that the wardrobes were locked. It did seem a little like Tom and Frances had gone on holiday, and we were using their place whilst they were away. We've used bookabach in NZ, and the houses were more like furnished rentals than feeling like staying at a friends place. I think I had different expectations, but it certainly didn't affect our stay.

    My only complaint was with regard to wifi. In the week we were there, we had no internet access as the password provided didn't work, and Tom didn't respond to my texts. This was a pest as we had wanted to (website hidden) family on Christmas day - but it wasn't the end of the world. It was Christmas, after all, and I hope that Tom and Frances were enjoying the holiday too. :-)

    We would happily stay again!

  • The location is great and the flat was clean and nicely furnished. it was a little inconvenient that there was no wardrobe space as the wardrobes were locked up in both bedrooms! otherwise it had all the necessary amenities. We also had a bit of a hiccup with gaining access. Tom said he'd sent an email re where he'd left the keys but we never received it and after a 27 hour flight the last thing we wanted was to wait outside in the pouring rain not being able to get in after 5 phone calls and 2 texts! However Tom was very apologetic and normally does respond fairly promptly. He had generously left milk and wine which he invited us to have. The milk we consumed but not the wine, so thank you Tom.

    December 2013
  • Highly recommend Tom and Frances' beautiful apartment. Great size and slept 5 of us comfortably. The location was amazing, being only a minute walk to the closest train station to take us straight into the CBD.
    Would gladly stay there again.
