Self contained stylish corner studio apartment with a large outdoor terrace and stunning view of Melbourne city. Set on level 19 above Collins this apartment presents a very unique and very true Melbourne city experience! Complimentary wifi included!

The Space

***Inbox me for special deals on longer stays***

A unique corner (dual aspect) apartment with access to a huge undercover rooftop terrace surrounded by city views.

Guest Access

All areas of the apartment (living room + kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and outdoor terrace) + gym, pool and sauna in the building.

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.

The Neighborhood

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.

Getting around

The apartment is surrounded by public transport options with 2 tram stops within 1minute of the building entrance and major train stations within 5-10 minutes walking.

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.

  • Coco's place is in a great location - during our 3 night stay we could step straight out onto Collins Street where it's easily to catch trams and it's a quick walk to Southern Cross train station. A few little updates would improve the feel of the apartment - it's comfy and you just can't beat the view - especially at night.

  • Coco was great at keeping in touch in the lead up to our trip and was happy to meet us and show us to the apartment, even though our flight was 30 mins late on a Friday night.
    The apartment was perfect for us, right in the city, beautiful city views. It would be great to go back in warmer weather and really make use of that terrace!
    Thank Coco!

  • Gorgeous bachelor's pad that is fitting for a couple on the go. The view from the terrace is exactly as pictured on the apartment's profile and Coco was such a lovely host who provided prompt communications and even extended our check-out time for our convenience!
    Location: Apartment is directly opposite Intercontinental hotel the Rialto; within 12-20mins walk to Vic market, Flinders st, Emporium, Bourke st and all the happening city spots
    Amenities: Basic toiletries such as toilet paper, towels, hangers & hair dryer are provided. Kitchen is also fully equipped with toaster, boiler, pots, cutlery & a microwave!
    Do note that as it's a rooftop unit and it's not directly accessible via lift, you'll need to take a flight of stairs up to be rewarded with the lovely view!

  • Coco has been attentive with the last minute enquiries! We love the balcony and had simple homemade breakfast at the balcony to admire the amazing CBD view surrounding the apartment. Apartment comes with simple bathroom essentials so do bring your shampoo etc. Coco also prepares hair dryer and most of the cooking essentials (eg salt, balsamic vinegar, pot and kettle etc) so you can enjoy cooking a little supper at home! 7-11 is just 2 mins away with Lui Bar just opposite, one if melbourne's top bars with the most amazing view!

  • Excellent apartment in the heart of Melbourne. If you want the perfect host and perfect night time view then this is the place for your stay in melbourne.

    Coco is welcoming and helpful. His apartment is comfortable and most importantly very relaxing with soft lighting and an impressive city back drop at night.

    I highly recommend this apartment and host!

  • My husband and I just arrived back from Melbourne yesterday after staying at Coco's beautiful studio apartment for 7 days. Nothing but wonderful, friendly and communicative service from the months prior to booking, to greeting us right out side with the apartment key. If you love being surrounded by city lights, high-rise buildings and in a perfect location to everything city wise in Melbourne this is the place! Hop on a tram right outside and it will take you anywhere you wish to go. Or enjoy the local high end pubs, cafe's and shopping on Collin's Street.

    We loved using the Trams to experience the amazing restaurants on Bourke and Lygon Streets.

    We cannot give Coco enough praise as a host! Out of 10 for my first experience using AirBNB - I give it a 10.

    Cheers Coco, and thanks so much again - we look forward to coming back next time we are in Melbourne.

  • We stayed at Coco's apartment over the Easter long weekend. We had that experience of walking and going wow! The views are quite spectacular especially at night time and we loved the huge windows. We were able to get around mostly be walking. The apartment had everything we needed and Coco was close at hand in case we needed help. This was our first booking though Airbnb and Coco lead us through the process and made it easy. We would happily stay with Coco again.

  • We had such a great time in Coco's apartment. He was lovely and helpful. The view was incredible and we were so close to everything. I would definitely recommend!

  • We found the rooftop terrace to be so incredibly convenient for access to central Melbourne. It is clean, comfortable and perfect for our short stay. Coco communicates promptly, and is both friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend the rooftop terrace to visitors to Melbourne!

  • Perfect for a couples get away!! We really enjoyed the apartment for our short trip to Melbourne. It's right in the cbd, an easy walk from the skybus terminal and trams stopping right out front. The terrace was a great spot to relax and the room was comfortable and had everything we needed.
    Coco met us on arrival to show us the room and was helpful with any questions during our stay. Overall a lovely trip, and the accommodation was a big part of that!

About
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!
