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!
This was my 2nd stay at Susi's and everything was perfect.
I can't get enough of the apartment and its surrounding and all that St kilda has to offer! I travelled alone this time round and always felt safe when I came back at night. Even went to the Salon around the corner and a run at the very scenic Albert park which was just 3 mins walk away.
Can't wait to be back. Thank you Susi for being such a great host and letting me stay at your gorgeous apartment again!=) Xx
Susi was wonderful, she greeted us out in the cold early morning and even offered to help with our luggages.
Loved the apartment, location was fantastic and safe for 2 girls facing the main road. Everything was a stone's throw away. Food/pharmacy/supermarkets/pubs/hairdresser you name it!
It was so easy getting everywhere with the Tram practically at our doorsteps.
We had a little hiccup along the way but Susi rectified it immediately and promptly.
The apartment was the perfect home away from home, it was hard saying goodbye. Can't wait to visit again and stay at Susi's.
We (couple with 16 year old) stayed in this apartment over Easter....unfortunately it is right upstairs from a lively underground bar and night club venue so 4 of our 5 nights were so loud we could sing along with the lyrics. Not great at 1am. But the welcome we received was lovely and the apartment is clean and neat. Small, a bit like a bedsit with the mezzanine allowing that extra sleeping space, but stylish. A few minor problems like the door handle of the bathroom falling off and the chandelier blowing 3 of the 5 light globes....Oh and the mouse running along the lounge floor and under the fridge, but we thought he could have been unearthed by the renovations going on elsewhere in the old building.
I am disappointed at this review and must respond. The guest was advised layout of the apartment as below, prior to us accepting any booking and in her request to stay with 4 people. We have over 20 photos plus a floor plan in our listing. "Just want to confirm suitability as layout is open plan and main bed is closed off with plantation shutters, and other bed is a queen New York loft style mezzanine accessed via a small stair case. Not sure of suitability for you all. Location is fabulous and amenities if you kids are able to share bed or stay at sisters. Please let me know if you require more information, The George is an amazing building with fabulous bars and restaurants on the ground floor, we are on 3rd, so occasionally I have a guest that doesn't like noise, there are trams at the front door, so I advise St Kilda not for everyone." It was over Easter and downstairs venues were open for one night only.
There are over 20 apartments on the same floor, plus 4 other residential floors. We are in vibrant St Kilda and the George is one of Melbourne's most beautiful heritage landmark buildings I checked with guest as is normal, during her stay if was all ok and was advised only, "All great. Thanks Susi and happy Easter!"... No mention of door handle issue or light globes, which would have fixed immediately as we have a 24 hour handyman on call and guest had my mobile .. There have been no reports of any mice in the building and we have checked apartment thoroughly and found no evidence .. We love and care for this apartment and treat guests like family, this is very dissappointing and unfair.
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.
