A Rooftop Cottage... In the CBD

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Little Lonsdale St, Melbourne, VIC 3000, Australia

Welcome To The Aerie!

**please note** **IMPORTANT**

We generally only accept bookings for 1 month or longer, but occasionally have gaps between larger bookings, and when this happens we change our minimum stay settings so we can accept bookings during these gaps. Airbnb's system unfortunately doesn't allow us to change the minimum stay ONLY for those dates, so if you've searched and found this property and want to stay sometime not within a day or two of an existing booking and less than a month, PLEASE do not request a booking as we will have to decline. Please check the calendar, we always keep it up to date.

The Aerie is a self-catering studio cottage on its own inner-city Melbourne rooftop. It has a unique ambiance and rustic appeal; weirdly and wonderfully out of place with the bustling CBD downstairs. It is a city oasis, with all the required conveniences literally at your downstairs doorstep - your own private pad for the price of a very budget hotel room.

Your host, Cassandra

  • Brilliant, Cass was lovely and replied really quickly to any queries. The flat is amazing - we couldn't have asked for a better location! THANKS!

  • What a special place to stay! A beautiful cottage amongst the skyscrapers in the centre of Melbourne CBD. Cass was a great host and the cottage itself had everything we needed. Would definately stay there again.

  • Cassandra was a really good host. She was kind to meet up late at night when I arrived in Melbourne and was quick to answer any queries I had both before and during my stay. I really much enjoyed my two month stay in the Rooftop Cottage. The outside space was perfect for me! The cottage is simple but suits its purpose. Perhaps the kitchen and its equipment is a bit too simple but that's not a big problem since take away food is so cheap and the selection of restaurants in the neighborhood is very good. The cottage is located (email hidden)ly area and the buzz from the nearby bars is evident Thursday through Saturday nights. Actually, I found that sound enjoyable. I slept with earplugs though, primarily because I tend to sleep in and a man came with a machine to clean the alley with the bins behind my window around 7.30 every morning. Unfortunately, earplugs did not shut that noise out. All in all, I recommend the cottage and Cassandra as a host!

  • Everything was seamless and can't help but agree with previous positive feedback. Can be a bit noisy but only a potential issue if you were to lie in bed all day. A great all-round place to stay and experience Melbourne from!

  • The Aerie is a great base to explore Melbourne. Fantastic location and the cottage has all the facilities you need for a short term or long term stay. Cassandra is an excellent host. She responded to our queries very quickly and helped us out when she could, especially when we needed to stay a bit longer! Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Aerie and we will remember this quirky but cool cottage very fondly.

  • I had a great stay at The Aerie...location, location, location!! Great little self contained place. As a female staying by myself for 5 weeks I never felt concerned for my safety.
    The street/construction noise took a little getting used to so if you are really sensitive to noise remember the ear plugs.
    I loved the stairs but for those with mobility issues they could be a problem, especially the last flight (quite steep).
    The rooftop sitting area is great.

  • I stayed with my husband at the Aerie for almost 1 month and it was great. The location is excellent!! very close to QV, Victoria Market, Melbourne Central and there are some cool bars in the same block, so it was perfect us! =)

  • Great, unique cottage, perfectly located right in the Melbourne CBD. Well equipped place with all everyday needs, reliable & fast internet and last but most importantly, greatly helpful and friendly host Cassandra really made this a great stay. If I come back to Melbourne I wold certainly trying to book The Aerie again.

  • I generally agree with all the other reviews - great location, fun spot being up on the roof, etc. I would note that the quality of the furnishings is what I would best describe as bargain-basement. Not of concern in most instances, but as my stay was during the dead of winter, I invested in some more substantial bedding.
