  • Danielle and Ruth were absolute gems! Very accommodating with speedy reply time. The apartment was gorgeous, very clean, wonderfully decorated and in a supreme location with easy access to everything one would need.

  • Danielle's apartment was small but perfectly formed. Very clean, well equipped and there was even a basket of goodies when we arrived. And the location was fantastic. We will always try to stay here whenever we visit Melbourne. Great experience.

  • We had a great stay at Position Perfect. Great location right near Lygon St and was quiet even though we were so close to the action. It was great to have a private apartment with all the facilities you need. Danielle and Ruth always communicated very quickly to any of our messages. We would happily book again or recommend to others. Many thanks :)

  • We are a couple living in the Netherlands with our 18 month old daughter and last October we travelled to Melbourne to visit our family. We were looking for a baby friendly apartment with a good location in Melbourne, close to the public transport. Because we had lots of questions about the apartment, location and Airbnb we sent more than 30 emails. The response that we got from Danielle and Ruth was great, always a fast and friendly response, even after all the emails we send. First week we stayed at the Brunswick apartment and the second week in the apartment in Carlton. Both were very fresh, clean and cosy and had all the things we needed for our stay in Melbourne. They provided a baby cot, high chair and even a basket with toys for our daughter to play with. The location of the Carlton apartment is really perfect, close the public transport and Lygon Street where there are many shops and restaurants, Brunettis was our favourite. Thanks again for making our stay in Melbourne truly perfect.

  • Great location and easy to get to - near tramlines and good restaurants. For a small space the layout was functional and enjoyable to be in. My 1 year old is crawling and walking around the edges of furniture and we found it to be a 'safe' space for her. We were able to watch DVDs in bed while she slept in the other room in the portacot provided - so there was no issue with thin walls/travelling noise like there has been in other places we've stayed. The washer with a dryer was really handy and the apartment was very clean and kitted out with everything we needed. Would recommend this to friends.

  • This apartment is in a great location, close to restaurants, supermarkets and trams. It is really clean and modern-I would recommend a stay here, however if there is three of you the bathroom is thru the main bedroom which is its only down fall, perfect for a couple though.
