Lisa was an exceptional host and very attentive to detail. Our arrival flight was delayed and she was very flexible and accommodating about the meeting time. The apartment was bright and welcoming added to by the complimentary wine and Easter treats Lisa had left for us. We stayed a week in the apartment and LOVED the location. We walked to the beach daily and had cafes, bars, and restaurants in the building itself, which we enjoyed every night. The St Kilda neighborhood was lively and fun and exactly what we were looking for. The apartment felt very safe for two women traveling alone and I liked that the building was locked after 6 pm so only residents could enter. I would love to stay here again next time we are in Melbourne.
Lisa was a wonderful host who welcome us on our first day. Its in a great location with access to trams that take u to the city and a vibrant nightlife. It gets noisy on the weekends as it sits on top of 2 bars, but having the windows closed makes it bearable.
It does warm up in the day and if u have the windows closed, you will be in for a long night. The portable air conditioner isn't sufficient to cool the place down.
In summary, great place if u like the nightlife and avoid in the summer.
Unfortunately Damien's family stayed during the period of The Grand Prix and the apartment is very close to where the cars race, so the noise levels would have been intense, so not good thing if you are not into car racing and the nightlife during this period is fairly busy and hectic due to the enormous crowds coming to Melbourne for this event. The weather was particularly hot also.
To help rectify this problem I'm going to install another ceiling fan.
I chose the bright, stylish, luxury apartment in st Kilda not only for the location, but for its design. My week long stay in Lisa's very impressive listing exceeded my expectations. Cafes, grocery store, restaurants, bars and a great hair salon literally out the front door of the iconic George building which the flat is located. What more could you need? The beach is a quick and pleasant 10 minute walk down Fitzroy. Lisa's attention to detail did not go unnoticed or unappreciated. Complimentary wine, fruit and chocolate was a chic touch in addition to exceptional decoration. Lots of light and high ceilings, a lofted bed was a clever use of space and addition which is very useful if guests or children spend the night. Lisa and her daughter made me feel very welcome in their space and were extremely helpful and accommodating. Superb listing at a fair nightly rate in a vibrant neighbour. Highly recommended and I would love to stay again next time I visit Australia !
Lisa was an outstanding host and provided a beautifully decorated apartment complete with fresh flowers, candy treats, beer and wine, and even a Bluetooth speaker system. The location is a early 1900's building at the epicenter of St Kilda, with cafes and nightclubs a plenty, just across the street from the 96 tram stop.
The reservation was canceled 2 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Susi was wonderfully welcoming and the apartment is modern and comfortable with everything you need. I definitely recommend this apartment for anyone wanting to stay near Melbourne. Thank you for a lovely stay!
About the Host, Lisa
I am an interior designer/artist that loves to travel. I spend a lot of time in NYC visiting my daughter who lives there along with regularly going on trips France to get inspiration.
Being a seasonal traveller, I understand the importance of having a beautiful, comfortable and clean space to stay while away from home.
