I live in Melbourne and am always available for assistance/queries on my mobile, but I leave my guests uninterrupted so that they can enjoy their holiday/trip as they wish, and they can treat my apartment like their home away from home.
The apartment is a short walk from train station and bus stops.
Justin is a great host - the stay in the apt is advertising for Airbnb, for Melbourne and for Justin himself. The small differences as we arrived - the important Myki cards for public transport, infos for the stay in Melbourne, the look into the fridge with a starter ;-) ... (the river flowing, the balconies...) Thanks Justin for making our trip a triple thumbs up experience!
Regards Det and Bianca
Lovely apartment, excellent view and Justin was a great and generous host!
I booked the apartment for my mum to stay in on a visit to Melbourne and she loved it. Very special spot with balcony looking over the Yarra!
Justin's place was Young, Tasteful & Warm. The view from both upstairs and downstairs balconies of the Yara and surrounding bush was very peaceful and made a restful refuge from our otherwise busy life. Thank you Justin
A wonderful experience! A cozy apartment in a great location with a gorgeous view of the Yarra river and a delightful host. Justin was always available to answer questions, offer helpful suggestions on local sites and eateries, and was incredibly accommodating with "check- in" and "check-out". The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen, TV, Internet, and a deck for enjoying sunrises and sunsets. Perfect for a single person or couple.
Justin's place was in a great location a short walk away from the train and just a short stroll into the heart of Collingwood. Everything needed for a great stay and Justin was super quick to respond. Definitely made my Melbourne trip a great one!
We had a very good experience in Justins appartment. Very nice view and a quiet neighbourhood. Easy access to buses to city and Justin provided us with Myki cards. In the fridge we found eggs, bacon, milk and bread. Coffee, honey and even toothbrush and paste was there for us. We felt very welcome.
Justin's apartment is gorgeous and a home away from home for us for almost two weeks. It's clean, bright, well-equipped, quiet and conveniently located. Justin is always quick to respond and always helpful. I will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Melbourne. Thank you!
Great place, loved being so close to the river and children's farm.
Justin was a great host, allowing us to change the date at the last minute. The apartment is well located about 25 minutes by train to the CBD. Parking spot is also a big advantage.
The apt has everything you need, including laundry.
Would stay there anytime, perfect for 2 if you don't need to be downtown.
Justin's place is great! Well equipped and furnished, clean and comfortable. Great location on the river - we enjoyed walking down to Collingwood children's farm, as well as Smith St cafes and shops. Would definitely stay here again when visiting Melbourne.
