Champagne tastes on a beer wage? my apartment more than suits. All the mod cons and excellent location without the Hilton Prices. Pretty much everything's provided. This is a real apartment, not a studio. room to swing a few cats.
Ok, so for the weary travellers, let's start with the bed. It's a fab uber comfortable queen bed, not to mention a sofa you'll probably fall asleep on. A Fully contained kitchen (great new coffee pod machine with different coffee pod strenghts ...dishwasher etc) very cosy place and airy with lots of light.
There's so much to do in Richmond. The apartment is Next to the 79 tram literally 10 metres from the apartment-which can take you all the way down to St Kilda, or shop til you drop along Chapel St South Yarra, or walk 4 minutes to the railway station. Walk around Richmond and be surrounded by the great bars, restaurants and shops. Get to the city by tram or train, super close to the 70 (Swan St) or 75 (Bridge Rd) trams, the MCG, Sports precinct etc.
You MUST eat at Fonda, the mexican place on Swan St, or for deeper pockets, try Union Dining at 272 Swan St. both are just fantastic places. Jimmy Grant's has just opened up on Church, and Meatball and Wine Co is fairly new and definitely worth trying on Swan Street near the huge new supermarket. For some gift shopping, head to Lily and the Weasel on Swan St on the right hand side as you head towards the city.
Walk to the Yarra River and take in Melbourne's beautiful skyline (while it's still beautiful) and if you're energetic, walk to Federation Square and have a beer or gourmet sausage by the river.
You'll find the best breakfast 5 mins down church street at Pillar of Salt. Even after several years, they still have Melbourne's best Chilli Scrambled eggs. OMG.
LGBTIQ travellers welcome. happy to give references to local activities/hotspots.
Access is off the main street through a quiet and small lobby. the apartment is fully self contained. I'm a laundry nut so there's always plenty of laundry liquid, dishwashing tablets, coffee pods, cooking stuff, shampoo etc etc, and I encourage guests to make themselves feel at home.
Free parking can be provided on site if requested.
Interaction with guests
you can contact me as frequently or infrequently as you'd like. I like to get to know guests but respect privacy. On weekends, i'm usually in the countryside.
Other things to note
there's plenty of shelf space for your clothes, There's a walk in robe for your suitcases etc too. Sometimes you need to give the door a good push when you're leaving. A hairdryer as well for those who can't live without one.
if you're here, i won't be, but I do live here normally when it's not being used by wonderful travellers, so keep it clean! smoke on the balcony if you like but not inside.
Use the squidgee in the bathroom after showering, only takes a few seconds, as like most places in the world, the water dries and leaves permanent calcium marks for which I'm not a fan
I supply breakfast cereal for story stays and can organise milk in advance if you tell me what your preference is. (Soy, regular etc). As electricity is super expensive in Victoria, don't leave the heaters on overnight or when you're out of the apartment (safety first)
