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.
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!
This was perfect for our needs. We are frequent visitors to Melbourne and know the city well. We primarily selected this property because of its location on the 19th floor and wanted city views, and the views at night were excellent. The apartment was exactly as shown in the photographs, compact and well organised. We only prepared breakfast but the kitchen is capable of more. The deck, for exclusive use by this apartment is a genuine deck, large and with seating. It would be great in warm weather. Key collection with Coco went without a hitch. Overall, we got exactly what we were looking for: a high rise apartment with views with trams outside the front door and the train station only a five minute walk. There are excellent eating options nearby but nowhere is far away in Melbourne, particularly given that travel on trams in the CBD is free and frequent.
This was my first time using AirBnB and Coco's place was the perfect choice! He was extremely welcoming and made everything a breeze, especially when it came to me arriving early and needing an earlier check in. The apartment itself is breathtaking, waking up to the sunrise on the rooftop is bliss. I would highly recommend anyone staying here, I would 10 times out of 10.
Lovely apartment just as in the photos. It's on the 19th floor , you have to walk up stairs to the top as the lift only goes to the 18th floor, but it's not a lot of stairs.
Once in the apartment you are up in the sky surrounded by Melbournes city scrapers, the view at night is beautiful and the sun deck is huge. Although I had plans to watch the sunset from the deck we never did in 3 nights as we were always out and about. Didnt miss the TV once- trust me you won't miss it!
Melbourne was alive on Labour Day weekend when we visited. Absolutely loved our stay, bars right opposite, 5 min walk to the river, laneways and fabulous shopping, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cocos apartment. He was the perfect host, gave us a late check out and met us at the door when we checked in.
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!
