About This Listing
Beautiful and secure studio apartment with high quality furnishings in a quiet tree lined street close to Fed Square, MCG, the tennis, Arts Centre, NGV, restaurants, shopping and Transport. Ideal for solo travellers, perfect hotel alternative!
Celeste is tastefully furnished with all the comfort and quality you would expect from a luxury studio this close to everything. The location is so central to all of Melbourne’s hallmark areas including Fitzroy, Carlton, St. Kilda, Richmond and South Yarra and the best part is you don’t have to be in the centre of the busy CBD. Nested on a leafy street with your own balcony looking out toward the village courtyards of East Melbourne and the gardens.
You will never have to worry about a heat wave or cold snap (something Melbourne is famous for) with full climate control at your fingertips and escaping the weather with the comfortable furnishings that Celeste boasts could not be more enjoyable!
There is a deluxe queen-sized bed and accompanying mirror plated side tables with drawers for storing your possessions. Beautiful artworks, rugs and prints collected from travels around the world and a custom made sofa bed that folds out to easily provide space for two individual guests. A small vintage table with old sheets of music laminated into its top is perfect for a coffee or bite to eat while you flip through the comprehensive city guide complete with recommendations and experiences of other guests.
An Italian designed TV is mounted to the wall in the living space, which can be repositioned to suit viewing from either the bed or the sofa. The kitchenette provides all the amenities for a short stay in Melbourne including kettle, fridge/ freezer, microwave oven, stove and toaster. In the comfortable sized bathroom, you’ll find a brand new washer-dryer for longer stays, a hair dryer and heated towel rail.
Access to the apartment is via security entrance and via security locked elevators.

East Melbourne is one of Melbourne's most desirable residential locations. It is on the fringe of the city with lots of lovely parks, tree lined streets and within a lovely courtyard village. You have nearby a convenience store, post-office, cafe at your doorstep, chemist, laundry/dry-cleaners should you not want to go into the city centre. Fitzroy Gardens are the most beautiful in all of Melbourne and are just a 5 minute walk from the apartment!
There is so much excellent public transport located nearby. The building is very close to Flinders Street station, Jolimont and Parliament train stations. It is also just a short walk to several tram lines including the free city circle tram. Bicycle share bikes are on the same street as are carshare (hourly rental) GoGet vehicles.
Other Things to Note
There is also a portacot if you are bringing your child, hair-dryer, high quality bedding, linen, towels and an ironing board and iron available in the apartment available at your convenience.
Note that a smoker has moved into nearby the apartment and the hallway by the door of the apartment may smell of cigarette smoke.
In keeping with the type of building, guests need to be respectful of other residents, decently attired and quietly behaved in common areas. No smoking is allowed in the apartment, it only takes a few minutes however to be out the front.
Five star all around for this space. Very convent location yet quiet residential neighborhood. Flat very clean. Bed super comfortable. Nice local info from owners. Place to yourself. Very good security. Even a bottle of wine(thanks). Host very communicative and responsive.
The apartment was really nice and in a great location with great amenities in the building. Linton was responsive and helpful with any questions.
Great location & wonderful little studio. Highly recommended! I mostly used the bed which was very comfortable. Also comes with pool, sauna & gym that I didn't have time to try.
Staying at Celeste was a delight. It is in a perfect location to the CBD and for attending events at the Allphones Arena.
Celeste is just as it is pictured and even better than that! The pool is awesome with a gym and sauna. Most of all it is clean and very comfortable.
Linton met all of my needs and then some.
Also, he is quick to respond to all communication and is knowlegable about the area.
I liked that there was a coffee shop (Muggs Alley) right next door. Good Brekkie and lunch.
If I ever visit Melbourne again I would definitely stay at Celeste again.
We arrived after 8pm and Linton was more than happy to accommodate. The apartment was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The lap pool and steam room a bonus. The location was a short stroll to good restaurants and bars. An easy walk to Cbd and Flinders station to go further afield. We really enjoyed our week at Celeste.
Celeste apartment is in a perfect location-an easy walk to the city and Fitzroy. The apartment was clean and organized and I felt very comfortable and safe staying there on my own. The gym and pool facilities were excellent and located right outside the apartment. The apartment was warm and cosy and perfect for my month-long stay. Linton was very helpful and quick to respond to any questions that I had. Overall I had an excellent time in Melbourne and the comfort and ease of the apartment made it much more enjoyable.
Loved the stay! Apartment was fantastic, location was unbelievable. Loved it.

About the Host, Linton
I’m an entrepreneur, architecture graduate, photographer, cyclist (NOT the lycra kind), volunteer, adventurer and problem solver.
During my studies I worked at various cafes and architecture offices to save up for shoestring trips around the world. My grandma once told me I had ‘champagne taste but a beer budget’ and it’s a motto I’ve enjoyed applying to different parts of my life to get the more out of less and find enjoyment in the little things.
I love discovering authentic experiences when I travel and I love being able to share the opportunity with others, to live like a local when they travel too.
Some of my most memorable trips have been couch-surfin across Russia while taking the Trans Siberian, living in Helsinki and learning to hand build furniture, riding a vintage steel bicycle through France to race in L’Eroica and buying a car on craigzlist in Los Angeles and driving across the south, east and north coasts to arrive in Vancouver.
