The Stables - an inner city haven

Apartment - Shared room · Little Gore St, Fitzroy, VIC 3065, Australia

Super sweet ultra quiet studio apartment close to all the best that Melbourne has to offer.

The Space

My place is a unique architectural dwelling in the heart of inner city Melbourne. Built in the 1840s, The Stables is two storey red-brick barn, recently converted into a stylish open-plan studio apartment. It is light, spacious and airy with attic window views over rooftops to the city centre. It's very close to the city, yet totally tucked away and super quiet at night.

Guest Access

For guests I have a very comfortable sofa bed in the downstairs lounge room area, adjacent the kitchen and courtyard. The upstairs area includes a lounge area, office, the main bedroom and the bathroom. Whilst you're here the downstairs loungeroom is all yours with access at all times to the bathroom upstairs. Occasionally I'm away, in which case the entire place is yours!

The Neighborhood

My place is right in the heart of Fitzroy's cultural hub of Brunswick, Smith and Gertrude Streets. There are loads cafe's, bars, restaurants, pubs, nightclubs, theatre's, music venues, gardens, galleries, vintage shops, boutique stores, and bookstores nearby. A short walk away you will find the Fitzroy, Carlton and Treasury Gardens, the Yarra River, Federation Square, the MCG and Melbourne's Sports Park.

Getting around

The 86 and 109 tram lines are 2 minutes walk away. Both will get you in to the city in 10 minutes. Parliament Station on the city loop train line is the nearest station, 10 minutes walk away, or 2 minutes on the 109 tram. The 246 bus will get you to St Kilda in around 30 minutes.

Other Things to Note

My place is open-plan shared space living, so is generally suited to shorter stays of up to 4 nights. If you'd like to make a booking please have a clear photo and description of yourself (and your friend/partner) on your profile. No smokers thank you.

Check In
  • Myf was a great host and provided us a lot of resources regarding the city--cafes, restaurants, bars, attractions, etc. The Stables is a cute and cozy place tucked in a quiet alley, but with lots of cafes, restaurants, and bars within walking distance.

  • My stay at The Stables with Myf as my host was beyond my initial expectations. I was charmed by the accommodation and it's location in the part of Melbourne that offers so much culture and choice when it came to entertainment. The information supplied by Myf was extremely helpful in finding my way about and the hospitality she afforded me made my stay incredibly comfortable.
    We both had busy schedules so our interaction was brief yet pleasant and Myf is very easy to share a space with. Definitely a recommendation for those travellers with a penchant for cosy, funky spaces in a vibrant and historic part of the city.
