This is a wonderful flat that is perfect for a couple or single. We were visiting the University of Melbourne and the location is ideal. The flat is on the top (3rd) floor and very quiet. We will definitely be back !
The home was as depicted, though smaller than I had anticipated (and that it appeared in the photos). The fold-out sofa was comfortable for my daughter, though having the sole bathroom accessible via the sole bedroom makes the apartment most suitable for someone single or a couple. When there were small issues to be addressed, the hosts were responsive and prompt. The neighbourhood is excellent: hugely convenient for someone visiting Melbourne who likes to explore food and wonderful walking streets.
Really convenient location. Apartment was clean and well presented. Arrangements for checking in and out were excellent.
Well kept apartment in Carlton. Very close to Lygon st and not a long walk into to the city either.
Hosts were very prompt with their responses.
Had a great stay!
The flat was as it was described with lovely furnishings, comfortable bed and very clean. It is just around the corner from Lygon Street, and very close to the venue where I attended my yearly Ministers Conference. After busy days it was fantastic to walk in and enter this quiet space where I could just relax. Thanks Ruth and Danielle for being great hosts who always quickly responded to emails and texts. I hope to be back again next year.
The apartment description met our expectations. The location was fantastic. As we come to Melbourne regularly to visit our children, we may use the apartment again. An extra chair would be useful as we like to have them have a meal or coffee with us at times. The apartment was clean and bright.
Danielle and Ruth communicated with us about our arrival, local information, where to find the key and provide a lively bottle of wine!
