Apartment was very clean and comfortable. Beds were very comfortable and strong, hot showers. Great location for us to walk to the tennis. The complex and the pool area are lovely.
Communication was efficient and concise, very easy to arrange our booking.
The apartment is well located but you should be aware that no one lives there, it is pure short stay rental, so there is no decoration almost , just basic stuff. Looking at the age of the sofa, the two paintings and the tacky bed, it looks like someone put there the furniture's you have and don't want to put in your own apartment so you use it for rental.... Walls are mostly empty, and you feel in a no-life space. plus the noise is important if you are not used to Trains... The bedrooms are 20m from the railways... In addition WiFi is a box you find in a drawer and need to turn on.. It was not explained so it took me one day of exchanges of mail to finally have the information that I needed to turn a small device on. I would not go back and you can find much nicer place to rent from individuals in Melbourne
Thank you for your very honest feedback Benoit. I am sorry you didnt lke the decor of the Apartment. The owners live there 6 months of the year and it is there second home. The artwork and furniture is all there own so they were very surprised and a little embarrassed by your feedback. They have taken on board your comments and we will review in light of your comments. The trains have never been the source of a negative review as our reviews have said how quiet it is. I am sorry it was a disturbance for you.
In regards to the WiFi instructions, on January 12th you were sent your arrival instructions with the WiFi access details including "The WiFi facility is in the draw on the left as you enter the Apartment. " I am sorry you missed it.
Thanks again for your feedback.
Kind Regards Lisa
We enjoyed our stay here while visiting friends and family in Melbourne. The stay was awesome we spent most of our time in the city which is only a short walk away. It was always a pleasure to come back to the apartment and relax after a busy day in the city.
The neighborhood area is so beautiful and we always felt safe walking around.
The actual setting and fitting are exactly the same as the photos show. The apartment was decorated with French style and quite humourously put up a portrait of Napoleon in Wellington Crescent. The surrounding area is tranquil and elegant, with a lot of trees and outdoor space, and yet very convenient. It only takes us 12 mins walk from the apartment to the Flinders Station which is the hub of almost all traffic in Greater Melbourne area. One of us simply walk to the Spring Street for musical show. We have full confidence on the safety of that neigbourhood.
What the photos did not show is that the apartment comes with a carport with high security control. There are cooking utensils, cutlery, tableware and condiments fill up all cabinets. I can even find a wok and high quality knives! There are even tea bags for us to use after dinner!
There are also cheese board and cheese knives, wine glasses and opener (but none of us drinks). Condiments include salt, pepper, chilli and even soy sauce!
The towels, shampoos and other toilet stuff are generously supplied in a closet, while extra cushions, blanket and sheets are also amply prepared for us, all clean and tidy.
We stayed there during winter time so it was not possible to use the balcony but it really looks nice. I would like to have breakfast there in a summer morning. Besides the fireplace, the apartment is also equipped with central heating that make the whole place warm and cozy in the cold winter time. I notice that there are air conditioning machines in bedrooms and I think these are for good sleep in summer time.
There is an expresso machine in the kitchen but no coffee capsule and milk. It is suggested that you can bring your own to enjoy a cup of good coffee.
The dish washer and oven are working fine and all of them are clean and are easy to use. The laundry was built in one of the bathrooms with washing machine and dryer. All these machines are clean and in good condition for us to use.
The internet access provided was of 4G mobile data and the host only allowed 2GB per stay. Unfortunately all of us relied on access and we have incurred extra usage, probably because of planning routes through google maps. No wonder there was a melway provided in the entrance!
A great stay in Melbourne with an ideal location close to the CBD. The apartment had very comfortable furnishings and the beds in particular provided great sleep-ins. The theme is very warming and picturesque allowing for relaxing moments. The interaction with the Host was very practical and swift in nature. An experience to remember and to replay.
Great stay! We loved the location as it's close to CBD and yet very private. Everything is a short walk away - city, parks, river...
The apartment had everything we needed, the only downsize would be no internet connection - a very common thing for Australia.
Otherwise I would highly recommend this place.
