Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Thanks to Marilyn for clear instructions for entry, and for following up with us to make sure we had no questions. The apartment was super convenient being so central and with the carpark available just downstairs it was the perfect base for us to buy our car and organise ourselves ready to go travelling around Aus. We did struggle initially with the traffic noise, but soon got used to it, and it was only a small drawback because in all other respects the apartment was comfortable with all the facilities anyone needs.

    Response from Marilyn:

    Thanks Cynthia for your kind words. Yes the traffic takes a bit to get used to but after a few days I get forget about it too. Living in a small French village it's quite a change for me too, but I love the location and you can't have both in a big city. Continued good luck on your tour of Australia, safe travels and enjoy Australia's naturally beautiful landscape.

  • It was a pleasant stay. Very convenient location. Marilyn was always helpful-- checking in and out was a breeze.

  • Super apartment in a great location. Marilyn is an excellent host and has clean towels and linens ready on arrival. There is a nice kitchen with all crockery, cookware and utensils. The location is 10 minutes from the CBD and just around the corner from Richmond's many cafes and eateries.

  • We stayed at Marilyn's apartment in Melbourne for a few months in the summer/autumn while travelling around Australia on working holiday visas. The apartment itself is in one of the best locations in Melbourne - just outside the city (15 mins walk) and next to loads of shops, restaurants and parks, with a tram stop right on the corner, getting you into the city in 5 mins. It worked out well for us working at the MCG, as it's only a 5 minute walk from the apartment. Richmond itself is very safe, and you could easily walk home on your own at night if you needed to. The only downfall is that all the cars driving down Punt Road can be a bit noisy, but we got used to that fairly quickly and it wasn't a problem for us. The apartment has everything you could possibly need in it, and is decorated beautifully so that you feel like you're at home rather than just visiting. Marilyn herself is absolutely lovely. She phoned us from France before we left for Australia to let us know how to check in, and made sure that we had all the directions we needed. She was in touch with us all throughout our stay to make sure that things were going well, and she helped us out when we decided to extend our time in Melbourne. As far as places to stay go, we highly recommend Marilyn's apartment. We can't imagine having stayed anywhere else, and we would definitely stay there again if we come back to Melbourne!

  • Gordon and I stayed at Marilyn's apartment in Melbourne and could not have been happier with the place. It met all our needs and we had a wonderful time there. It's so close to the centre of Melbourne and on New Year's we were able to see some of the fireworks from the extra room's windows. We'd love to stay there again - thanks, Marilyn for being so attentive and accessible. Sue and Gordon Boyd, Castlegar, BC Canada

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It is a home away from home with all sorts of personal touches you wouldn't find normally. The apartment is in a great location and the pictures don't do it justice. It was very clean and tidy and has everything you need. The host even rang us from France to make sure everything was OK which impressed us. We were able to extend our stay which was wonderful as it made things so much easier. We would stay here again if we need to in the future. Geoff and Jennie

  • Marilyn's apartment is well situated and has all the amenities required for a short or long term stay. It is close to transport and shops - the MCG is walking distance. We had a magic stay and the arrangements for access were easy. Hope we can do this again sometime soon.

  • I stayed at Marylin's beautiful apartment for three weeks while doing an intensive course in Melbourne, and just loved it. The apartment was very clean, spacious, warm, well stocked and beautifully furnished, it became a real little haven for me! Punt raod and Bridge street are very busy and there is traffic noise, but it didn't disturb me, and it was worth it given how central and well located this aprtment is. I was 15 minutes from Auburn where my course was, and 20 minutes walk to the centre of the city (much quicker by tram). The tram stop was a 2 minute walk (very safe getting home late at night) and the train station was a 10 minute walk. Bridge street is fantastic, full of life, shopping, good cafes and supermarkets. Marylin was an excellent host, reliable and helpful. Even though she is in France, she contacted me regularly to make sure I was alright. The apartment is also very safe, I was there by myself and felt safe the whole time. I highly recommend this apartment and will try and would stay there again next time in Melbourne.

  • Great location. Marilyn was very accommodating. I would stay here again.

    April 2012
  • Although Marilyn is in France, she is very concern about her guests. She is very kind and responsible.
    She has a comfortable, tidy, well designed and lovely apartment which is very close to public transport.
    The apartment was fantastic for what we needed
    Close to lovely Yarra River and MCG.
    We spent a month in her apartment and we enjoyed it very much.
    We felt like we were staying at a friend's place
    Thank you very much Marilyn

semi retired from Australia living in country France
I am a happy person living in rural France which I love. I came here almost 6 years ago following my dream to live in France. My French cottage is a completely renovated 19th century old stone house in the Baie of Mont St Michel and another gite available for summer rental in Fontenay in a 300yo stone cottage. I also have my Melbourne apartment in the CBD opposite the MCG which I have available for people coming to stay a short time in Melbourne or relocating for work. I love and enjoy both locations for the history and above all the people and the different lifestyles. I hope you enjoy your stay at one of my properties. My life's motto?....I have many but most of all I follow this one: Begin with what you are in no doubt of ... what makes you happy. Take the time to feel secure in your choices and the rest will follow. A bientot marilyn
