Hi, we have a medium sized room available in an architect designed (by me!) conversion of a turn of the century tea warehouse.
We're just a ten minute walk from the heart of Melbourne and the same distance from South Melbourne. Both areas offer the best in bars, cafes and restaurants that the city has to offer. A supermarket, bottle shop, cafes and restaurants are also within a two minute walk. The #55 tram will take you to the city centre and South Melbourne and it leaves from in front of the building. Access from the airport is just 20 minutes by car or you can take the Skybus and then the tram.
The apartment features original four metre exposed timber ceilings and exposed brickwork throughout. The solid walls help to keep the apartment cool through summer. Your bedroom, with built in robe is sun filled and comfortable.
There is one shared bathroom but it's big and the layout is innovative (check out the photos, you'll see what I mean!). The living, dining and kitchen areas are large and well appointed and there are basic breakfast items available. There is also a balcony for your use.
If I've missed anything please contact me and I'll do my best to answer any questions.
Please note that if you are arriving on a weekday we can only check you in after 6pm - weekends are more flexible!
Barbara and mike's apartment is really amazing ! Barbara designed it herself so that everything is in order. Each item has its place so that you can feel the harmony of the house. It's very good located and spacious. Barbara and mike are very nice people, they like to cook in the evening, which smells good in the whole apartment !
Nice host, awesome place & great location!
We stayed at Barbara's and Mike apartment for some days. The location is quiet and convenient for visiting Melbourne, the house is nice and clean. Barbara and Mike have been very kind and helpful in every situation. Recommended!
Great apartment and lovely hosts! Thank you for having us!
Had a fantastic time with Barbara and Mike, they were really friendly hosts and could not have been more helpful. Apartment was brilliant and nice and quite, and the bedroom was perfect. Muesli was incredible, highly recommended.
We stayed with Barbara and Mike for 3 nights from the 18th January 2014. They were so welcoming and helpful with any questions we had. The apartment is lovely and we really enjoyed our stay.
It was really good of them to leave out some breakfast for us too and of course had use of facilities to make cups of tea etc.
The location was great too. Only a short walk to the Southbank along the river where there was lots going on and plenty of places to eat!
We really loved our stay and would definitely recommend staying here if in Melbourne.
Beautiful apartment, great location and the best home-made muesli for breakfast!
We really enjoyed staying with Barb and Mike. They're excellent hosts who were also super helpful in planning out time in Melbourne. Barb graciously provided us with her delicious homemade muesli - easily the best we've ever had! She also had no problem accommodating
our late check out. Her cleverly designed warehouse conversion is just a short walk from the CBD. The room was large and bright with a comfortable bed. We will definitely book with them again the next time we're in Melbourne.
Convenient, central location. Attractive, cleverly-designed space. Kind and accommodating hosts. (Although our paths seldom crossed). Thanks!
we can recommend barbaras apartment. great design, near city center, clean, lot of space, friendly and helpful host. if you travel by car you need to search for a parking possibility (parking garage is nearby).
