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.
We will contact you before arrival to arrange key collection - normally from our office at 601 Little Collins St. Once you've collected the keys then it's all yours to enjoy. If you have any questions during your stay you are welcome to call us anytime.
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.

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.
