Interaction with Guests
When in Melbourne I am happy to suggest and share many of the 'secrets' that this city tightly holds away from the tourist eye. I work and spend a lot of time around the CBD so always very happy to help with any requests.
Collins Street is one of Melbourne's most beautiful streets with so many things to offer. Those that have been to Melbourne know, for all new comers I would suggest a quick web / wiki look at Collins Street and the surrounding area.
The apartment is surrounded by public transport options with 2 tram stops within 1 minute of the building entrance and major train stations within 5-10 minutes walking.
Enjoy the free tram zone all around the cbd from right outside the door!
Other Things to Note
This apartment is a TV free environment - yup there is no TV in the house! With all the things to see and all the things to do around the city I personally do not have time (nor have any interest) to watch TV and I would recommend you try and do the same during your stay!
May I suggest a nice bottle of wine on the terrace enjoying the city view instead? That would make a much more memorable experience.
Also please note: the apartment is set on top of a hotel building which also offers many rooms and suites in different shapes and sizes. Although this apartment is unique in its position, aspect, decor, view and use of outdoor space, if you are only concerned with location during your stay then you could have a look at the lower levels of the hotel building to see what other options are there.
No parties and no excessive noise. Please keep everything clean and tidy and leave the apartment in order.
The stay at Cocos was awesome. Although it was an apartment in a serviced apartment building it still managed to feel homely and cosy. Coco met with us at the arranged time and showed us around the apartment. The photos definitely don't do the apartment views justice. It was exceptional. The apartment interior itself looked exactly how it was in the photos. Our stay in Melbourne was awesome! I definitely couldn't have asked for a better host and home!
P.s apartment location is great. Very easy to get around by trams and close to everything. Coco was also very quick to respond to any questions!
The apartment is well-furnished, clean and has fantastic views of the city from the rooftop terrace. It's located in an area that is well serviced by public transport so getting around Melbourne was quite easy. Coco was friendly and very accommodating with the check out time. Our stay in Melbourne was very enjoyable and I highly recommend Coco's apartment.
Coco's hospitality and apartment were both amazing. Perfect location with everything you need close by or reachable by tram! Would recommend to everyone :)
We had the most amazing experience staying at Coco’s rooftop apartment in Melbourne! Coco was very helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay and he was welcoming when we arrived. He was also very quick to reply to our messages which we really appreciated.
The location is really close to the CBD and most restaurants and attractions which made it perfect for our stay. The layout of the apartment was great for a longer holiday as there’s plenty of space and everything we needed was provided by Coco.
In particular we enjoyed the stunning view and sitting on the incredible private deck enjoying a beer and some nibbles.
We can’t recommend it more!
Coco met us upon arrival. His place looks just like the pictures and the view is absolutely stunning. You can't beat the location right in the heart of Melbourne with everything you desire in walking distance or a few tram stops away.
I cannot speak more highly of this fantastic apartment - it is a beautiful place to stay, and will make your trip truly remarkable. Not to mention, the view the apartment has at every time of the day was an amazing thing to witness. It was everything that we hoped it would be, and more. Overall, everything was perfect, and Coco was very helpful and accommodating. We will definitely be staying again!
Coco met us outside the building when we arrived about 7pm. We had an easy 10 minute walk from the Skybus at Southern Cross Station. The location on 18th floor in Collins Street was fantastic - in the CBD, right on a tramlines we needed for both St Kilda and Brunswick Street. The deck is as amazing as it looks - make time to use it! Also the gym on the 3rd floor is a bonus. The studio itself is spacious and well furnished. We really look forward to returning to Coco's apartment. Honestly, I'd be very happy living there!
About the Host, Coco
Creative director living in Melbourne and often found overseas and interstate. I love life in Melbourne's CBD and everything it has to offer: the laneways, the restaurants and bars, the ambiance and of course the people. My city base is set in a humble rooftop apartment that reflects everything I love about urban life. No matter what I may have been through during my hard working days or weeks, a few minutes on my terrace soaking the city around me gets me right back to normal.
After a recent visit to New York City I have decided to open and share my city base with like-minded travelers who may be looking for a unique, hidden city apartment that represents a lot more than just a roof over their heads. I hope you enjoy this humble Melbourne Pied-à-terre during your stay!
