We were escaping paint fumes at our place around the corner, and Frank & Vince's apartment in Elwood could not have been more convenient for me, my husband and daughter. Everything we needed was there or in the shops at the doorstep. Their quick and courteous communication made it extra sweet. We checked in only a couple of hours after booking and everything was in order. Thanks guys.
Frank and Vince were very thorough and professional. The one time I had a small problem they were quick to respond, and they followed up to make sure everything was okay. The apartment itself is cute and cozy, with everything you need. And the location is excellent - a five-minute walk to Elwood Beach. Light sleepers and early-birds might have a little problem with the street noise, as it's right in the heart of Elwood, but its not a 'party' area - things are nice and quiet by 11 or 12. For me, the convenience of having shops and cafes on my doorstep far outweighed the chatter! All and all, it was a smooth, enjoyable experience.
Our stay was delightful and the location of the apartment was superb! All amenities were provided by Frank and Vince exactly as described in the ad. Only down side was the road noise with the commercial shops out front bringing rubbish trucks and street sweepers etc from 5.30am each morning, public holiday or not. Nothing ear plugs wouldn't sort though. Would be gladly stay there again.
Hi Mel, So glad you had a great stay and the apartment and location suited you. We aim to please! Surprised you found road noise an issue, as we've never had this feedback before. Isn't the location fantastic? Right in the heart of the Village with every amenity right at your door step and the beach down the road. Hope to host you next time you're in town! Cheers, Frank and Vince
Very much enjoyed the apartment. Was lovely to return at the end of the day. Felt like home away from home. Great location and great facilities.
All went really smooth and easy...just what i needed!
Frank & Vince were super helpful with our short notice booking saving us from a miserable motel when our original accommodation booking fell through.
A great little apartment in a lovely location. Well thought out decor created a cosy welcoming place to return each day. Beds were comfortable with lovely high quality linen.
Only small down fall was the shower that can run a bit hot/cold (as I think it is a share system with other apartments). Despite that we'd all happily stay again. Thanks again guys for a fabulous place to stay.
Hi Nicole, We're happy to have been able to help out with last minute accommodation. So pleased you enjoyed the apartment and its fab location. Thanks for the super review! Thanks also for pointing out hot water issue. We've not had this reported by other guests, so we'll have it looked at. All the best and you're most welcome to stay again! Cheers, Frank and Vince
This apartment was peeerrrrfect! Thanks Frank & Vince!
Super easy to get gain access per instructions. Even during the chilly Melbourne evenings this place was cozy & warm.
What traveller does not love having a washer & dryer. Awesome! I only used the cute kitchen for coffee since there were so many eating choices around. If you have never been to Elwood...go! It is a perfect beachside location. Plus this apartment allows you to walk to restaurants, grocery store, park & beach. I want to come back in summer :)
