Southbank Warehouse Conversion

Loft - Private room · Queensbridge St, Southbank, VIC 3006, Australia

The Space

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!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • My first Air BnB experience was definitely a positive one. The apartment was beautiful as can be seen in the photos. Muesli in the morning was a really nice touch. Barbara & Mike are lovely and provided lots of useful advice about Melbourne. Super convenient to the casino, convention centre and not far from the CBD.

  • Once again a pleasant and relaxed stay with Barb and Mike, this time the two of us and three nights. Great location, relaxed attitude, great hosts.

  • Lovely apartment that was clean and centrally located, allowing us to walk everywhere.

    If you are coming with a car, there is no parking. However we found free parking ourselves from Fri 6.30pm - Mon 8am just around the corner on Moray St.

    We were left to our own devices and didn't get to meet Barb until the last night of our stay. Really enjoyed ourselves despite no breakfast left out on day 1 and having to trek our stuff from the car.

    This AirBnB option is ideal for self sufficient travellers who want somewhere in the heart of the city.

  • I had a wonderful time staying at Barbara's and Michael's place which is ideally located and is really nice. Unfortunately I was only there for two nights and most of the time I was out which didnt give me a chance to get to know Barbara and Michael better but if I ever come back to Melbourne I would like to stay at their place again.

  • I had a great stay @Southbank Warehouse Conversion. The place is absolutely amazing and had the perfect central location you're looking for in Melbourne. The room is great and I really just can't think of something negative about this place. And let's not forget the hosts! Barbara puts a lot of effort in helping out in every way she can and is so welcoming. I really felt at home and enjoyed my stay here a lot! Don't look any further, just book this place:)

  • 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 !

  • 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.

I'm an architect recently returned to my home town of Melbourne after 5 years living in New York City. Whilst I love cities and all things urban, I also like a good dose of nature once in a while. I'd like to think my boyfriend, Mike, and I are easy-going and respectful hosts, we are big fans of airbnb - having hosted and stayed in places all over the world.
