About this listing
A spacious and comfortable apartment, in easy walk of the CBD, river, Crown, gardens, theatres and sporting stadiums. Or just take a tram from the stop directly outside our complex! It has everything you need including free parking and Wifi.
We would like to invite you to enjoy our lovely apartment, set in tranquil gardens, just a stroll across the river from Melbourne's exciting CBD.
Take a tram or wander through Melbourne's maze of laneways, crammed with interesting and funky shops and outdoor cafes, or just stroll around the area and enjoy the beauty of the city's architecture and gardens.
Our 2-bedroom apartment has everything you need for a truly enjoyable city retreat, including a solar heated outdoor pool, sparkling spa, mod-grass tennis court, a secure undercover car park and a tram stop practically on the doorstep.
All of Melbourne city's highlights are within an easy stroll, or short tram ride, including the theatres, shops, laneways, bars, restaurants, museums, MCG, Etihad Stadium, Melbourne Convention Centre, Crown Casino, Queen Victoria Market, China Town, the Yarra River and Royal Botanical Gardens to name just a few.
This cosy, self-contained 2-bedroom apartment in Southbank is one of 3 apartments that we have listed on airbnb, all located in one of Melbourne's most sought after apartment complexes. Its the perfect place to stay for those that want to make the most of Melbourne's many attractions or just to relax.
We think we have one of the nicest and more unique apartment complexes in Melbourne. It is a low rise complex set in an acre of landscape gardens, with grass to loll on, a gorgeous pool and spa to splash in, and a tennis court and small gym if you are feeling more active. It is more of a resort than an apartment complex.
The apartment is located up two short flights of stairs on the second level in a low-rise complex set around gardens. We only have four stories which gives it a much friendlier atmosphere, and there is a lot more interaction between residents.
The No.1 tram stops right outside our complex and takes you to the city in one direction and South Melbourne beach the other way. We are also surrounded by bike paths and have hire bikes just across the road if you want to be more active.
What you will get:
2 good size bedrooms - one with a queen size bed and the other with a queen and a single bed.
(There is also a single fold out bed if needed).
Use of the recreational facilities e.g. solar heated pool, spa, tennis court (just ask us for racquets and balls if you want a hit) etc.
Use of the fully equipped kitchen and BBQ,
Linen, towels, crockery and cutlery, oven/stove, microwave, washing machine, fridge provided.
Heaters and fans
One bathroom with combined bath and shower
A separate toilet
Front balcony overlooking the tennis court and gardens
Tram stop directly outside the apartment complex
Flinders Street train station (Melbourne's metropolitan station) just a short walk away
Hire bikes just across the road
Mini supermarkets, noodle shop, pizza and Italian restaurant only 200 metres away
Eclectic South Melbourne Market and Clarendon Street just up the road.
In the area:
Our apartment is located in the heart of the 'arts precinct', a short walk from the river, Southgate, the Arts Centre, National Gallery, Crown Entertainment, Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, DFO and Docklands, with a huge range of great restaurants, bars and shops to choose from.
We could go on an on... but will refrain ourselves! If you would like more info just send us an email via airbnb. But if you are interested we would suggest that you get in quick as accommodation in this complex tends to get booked out early. :-)
Looking forward to meeting you soon.
Cheers Bronnie and Neil
NOTE: While this is a great place to enjoy the best of Melbourne it is not a party place. The body corporate is very strict on late night parties and noise and fines are issued if security has to be called out.
It is a family friendly place and we are looking for considerate people who will be respectful of the apartment, neighbours, facilities, and body corporate rules.
Just a couple of simple house rules:
No loud noise or parties
No smoking inside
No additional guests without checking with the hosts
Apartment to be clean and tidy when you leave
Respect the other people who share the complex and adhere to body corporate rules i.e. no alcohol, glass, or smoking in pool, gym, spa or tennis court areas,
no laundry on the front balcony, abide by noise restrictions etc. (for extreme breaches of body corporate rules security may be called out and charged to offenders)
From Jan 18 - 31, 2016 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
We stayed for 4 nights and were very happy with the apartment. It was clean and comfortably appointed. It is an easy 5 min walk to Southbank and there is a supermarket just a few minutes up the road. The apartment complex is quiet and the grounds are well kept.
OMG. Fantastic apartment in a fantastic complex in a fantastic location in a fantastic city.
The apartment is all you can ask for. Ideally located for the city and beach. It has everything you need and more. The little extras you don't expect, ( tea, coffee, sugar, toilet paper, shopping trolley (which was a God sends)).
Bronnie and Neil are very friendly and there at the snap of the fingers if required.
The kids loved the tennis court, gym, pool and sauna.
First class all round and we would highly recommend to anyone visiting Melbourne.
We traveled for business this time, so we were out at work from early morning until late every day. The host's friend Mark met us on arrival and kindly explained everything, including our essentials - nearest supermarket and local restaurants. The location of this apartment was great for us and very convenient to shops and food. It was great to come home after a long day and be able to relax in a spacious apartment with a proper kitchen for snacks and making our breakfast and lunch, rather than being squished in a hotel room. The bed was comfy, the shower was hot, everything worked. That's all we ask for! Thanks Bronnie, Neal and Mark, we'll be booking again for next year.
I booked 3 of Neil and Bronnie's apartments for my family, in-laws and parents to stay for a weekend. The whole stay was fantastic and the apartments and the ease in staying there made our trip awesome. The apartment was fantastic. It had everything we needed, and the location was great. It was close to everything and we really enjoyed our stay. Apartment was very clean, comfortable and Mark made our stay easy....
What a great place to stay! Has everythingg you need such a short walk from everything! Mark was very helpful whenever you called him! Would stay again if in melbourne!
Neil met us upon arrival and was most accommodating as we arrived prior to official check in time with bags in hand. Neil was quick to explain the nuances of the apartment and the apartment complex as well as making us feel most welcome.
Great position and everything you could want for a family visit to Melbourne. The host Neil was very helpful and dealing with him was very easy. Thank you!

About the Host, Bronnie & Neil
Hi from Bronnie and Neil. We love our city and sharing it with others. We're pretty easy going, and love getting out and about exploring different places. We are both keen travellers and have done our fair share of it in Australia and overseas - whether backpacking, camping, or the occasional splurge on 5-star resorts! You wouldn't call us 'party animals', but we do like socilaising and meeting people. We enjoy a wide variety of interests, love the movies, eating out, popping down to the beach on our scooter or pushbikes, and enjoying the many exciting sporting events and festivals that Melbourne has to offer.
As well our a private room in our own apartment we have three other entire apartments that can be booked on airbnb as well as another private room in a cosy apartment in South Yarra. You can view them by clicking the View Full Profile link below and clicking on the listings on the left hand side of the page.
We think airbnb is a great way to travel and we really enjoy being airbnb hosts as we get to meet so many wonderful people from all parts of the world. We are more than happy to help you out as much as we can to make sure you have a great stay in Melbourne, including playing tour guide if schedules suit :-) We hope to meet you soon!
