Here just a few words from other guests that stayed in our St Kilda East apartment:
We stayed in the Inkerman St 2 bed apartment for 6 weeks with our young daughter. The apartment is very spacious, comfortable with all the mod cons. When we had a couple of minor maintenance issues, they sent someone around very quickly and resolved the problem. While it's not the quietest street to stay on (due to traffic noise), the location is great and you can get to the tram and train within a short walk. The shops on the Balaclava High Street are handy - some interesting boutiques and there's all the usual suspects (Coles, Woolworths, Fruit & Veg, Butchers etc). All in all, if you need a short stay apartment in Melbourne then this is great - so much better than staying in a hotel. Thank you to the crew at "Living Like Locals".
Vivek from Melbourne off to Overseas
My wife, my nearly-two-year-old toddler and I had a great experience renting from Simone and the gang at Living Like Locals. We had moved out of our apartment in preparation for moving overseas and needed a furnished apartment in a convenient area. We ended up living at their Inkerman St property for six weeks. Simone, Susanne and everyone else were great - they made us feel like we could treat the place as our own, and they were very responsive when we had questions or needed something from them. We thought that renting from Living Like Locals was a great value for us, and we highly recommend it for those who are considering an extended stay in Melbourne.

This was a great little flat for our first two weeks in Australia when we were relocating from the UK. We had a very late check in on a Sunday night, but this wasn't a problem for the hosts. On arrival there was a nice welcome pack for us, including coffee, tea, wine and TimTams! Perfect. Amenities inside the flat were great, such as a few small toys for our toddler, guide books/leaflets, CD and DVD player etc. The hosts also offered us a highchair and/or travel cot before we arrived. The flat was pretty clean, and is as spacious and bright as the pictures suggest.
The communication before and during our stay was excellent, Susanne was always very quick to respond and was very helpful.
The location of the flat is good, a 7-11 a couple of minutes walk away and a playground a little further. A tram stop just down the road to go further into St Kilda and a bus stop on the corner for heading into the City. I was a little concerned that the flat might be a bit too noisy, as it is on a main road, but it wasn't a problem. Our 4 month old slept well in the front bedroom, and the twin room where our toddler slept was at the back/side of the flat so a little further away from the road noise. The road is pretty quiet at night.
The flat is up two flights of stairs and there's no lift, but we left our buggy in the car so no problems there. There was always plenty of free parking on the street right outside.
All in all a great start to our year in Australia, this flat makes a good base for finding somewhere more permanent to live, and works well for people with kids.
The reservation was canceled 33 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a great stay at the appartment of Living Like Locals at St Kilda East in Melbourne. The appartment is great and the communication before, during and after the say was excellent. Thank you!
The property manager met us when we arrived and was fairly welcoming.. The apartment was nice, fairly close to what we expected. Spent a good time there and it was easy to get into the city
We stayed at Inkerman Street, Great location. Only minutes walk to Luna Park, beach, Acland street. Great restaurants near by. Beds comfortable. Only negative would be a little noise from the street and the unit was on level 2 of the building and with no stairs makes bit difficult with pram and kids .Didn't bother us too much and the noise stopped at a reasonable time. Thank you for a great stay :)
We had a wonderful stay in Inkerman Street, the hosts are very very friendly and helpful and everything was set up to entertain two little kids and their parents with a generous welcome basket/Dvds/toys etc. The apartment is spacious and clean and very well equipped. It is on the 2nd floor and there is no lift which would have been good to know (not easy with stroller).
Other than that - excellent accommodation and would go back any time.
What great hosts! We stayed in this apartment for four weeks in March 2014 and were really happy. We were made to feel very welcome by Suzanne when we arrived and the living like locals team could be contacted really easily if we needed them. The apartment is really spacious and our two year old and four year old settled in right away! Good location with easy access to trams to get to the beach and only a short walk to shops, cafes and parks. Facilities in the apartment are great and it's really set up for families. We really miss St Kilda now that we're back in the UK!
