About this listing
I love this city so I've made sure I've placed myself where I have easiest access to all Melbourne has to offer! I'd love you to experience the city as I do.

Located just two doors from the Princess Theatre and 4 doors from the European, this one bedroom apartment is the perfect place to base yourself at while you explore the streets of Melbourne.
The apartments consists of a queen size bed and is ideally suited for one or two people. There is also a fold up bed in the sofa if required.
There is also everything that you will need in order to make yourself at home, including cooking facilities, washing machine, dryer, TV, stereo. It's my home, so it's set up for my lifestyle. I love it, and am keen to share it with you!
Facing west, the apartment gets the afternoon sun, but is bright all day round. With heritage listed Gordon House as our closest neighbour, the low rise buildings give an open view of the city.
If you tell me where you want to go, I'll tell you how many footsteps it is to get there! You will also be able to see most of the places you might want to go, mapping out the grid of the city while sitting on the balcony.
If you are wanting to check out any of the major sporting events at the MCG, it's just a 20 minute walk through the beautiful Fitzroy Gardens.
If you're not up for heaps of walking (I walk most places around Melbourne, can't get enough of the place), there are tram stops and Parliament Station at the door step.
This is my home so is set up as such. Everything you need to live, so make it your home during your stay.
Interaction with Guests
I'll leave you alone, but always happy to answer questions and give you tips about the city I love.
Everything is at the doorstep. Quality restaurants and bars, theatres, public transport, parks, and Melbourne's fabulous shopping precinct.
There is a railway station and tram stop at the front door. If you need them. I walk almost everywhere.
Other Things to Note
Wifi in the apartment.
I'd only ask that you respect my home and that of the other people in the building.
I really enjoyed staying at Trevor's place. The apartment could not be better located, super central, and the best spot to explore Melbourne. Walking distance to most everything, and if not, you have the metro Parliament Station, trams and buses right outside, which will take you anywhere you want to go. The apartment is well appointed, comfortable, and well equipped with kitchen stuff if you are inclined to use it (I didn't as I eat out all the time). Trevor left a few things that were very useful and thoughtful. A pair of outlet adapters, so I could plug phone and computer with US plugs, maps and city guides, and a Myky card to use with public transportation. Unfortunately I didn't get to meet Trevor, but he was very responsive and made sure that everything was ok during my stay. A friend of him was there to give me the keys and was my contact in Melbourne in case I needed anything. Overall a great stay.
This was our first experience dealing with Airbnb and I have to say it was a real joy. Trevor's apartment could not have been better situated - so convenient to the centre of Melbourne, and with train and tram stations just outside the door.
The apartment itself was fantastic and perfectly suitable for my wife and I. Had all the facilities we could want and was just like a home form home.
As I know we will be traveling to Melbourne again, we will definitely seek to rent this apartment again.
Really appreciate all that Trevor did to make our stay a wonderful experience.
Trevor's place was perfect, clean, comfortable, brilliantly located. He was flexible and easy to organise everything with. Thanks a million, hope to be back in the near future!
Wir haben unsere Ankunft spät am Abend mit Trevor per Mail (in Englisch) abgesprochen. Trevor ist sehr kommunikativ und das Check-In war sehr einfach. Wir hatten ein komplett eingerichtetes Appartement für uns mit Schlafzimmer und bequemem Doppelbett, Bad,/WC und Waschmaschine/Tumbler, Küche und Wohnzimmer mit Fernseher, Stereoanlage, DVD, Wi-Fi und Balkon mit schöner Aussicht auf das Central Business District CBD (Innenstadt) von Melbourne.
Das Appartement ist sehr ruhig und ideal in der äussersten Häuserzeile des CBD, also sehr zentral gelegen. Vor dem Haus hat es eine Strassenbahnhaltestelle mit City Circle Tram und verschiedenen andern Tramlinien. Das Trendquartier Fitzroy ist nahe und zur Universität ist es nicht sehr weit. Nicht weit ist es auch zu verschiedenen Parks/Grünanlagen.
In der Innenstadt bzw. in Fitzroy hat es sehr viele Restaurants. Die Little Bourke Street neben dem Haus geht durch Chinatown.
Wir können das Appartement von Trevor bestens empfehlen und würden gerne wieder dort wohnen, sollten wir je wieder die schöne Stadt Melbourne besuchen.
Trevor's place was great. It was clean and comfortable and in a fantastic location. I would definitely recommend it to any traveler looking for accommodation in Melbourne.
Thanks Trevor and keep up the good work!
This is Your Own Place in Central Melbourne, I had a great stay here. The location is perfect, facilities great and the host very helpful and accommodating.
I'm a lone American traveler who was in Melbourne over the recent Christmas holiday. I'm usually not a fan of hotels or hostels (they're just so touristy), so Trevor's place was perfect for me. Great location, on the edge of Chinatown and easy access to public transportation. The flat was nice and clean and tidy. I enjoyed the balcony where I could drink my morning coffee and plan out my day. The free wifi was also helpful.
Trevor was easy to work with and responded efficiently to my emails. He also left notes and tips on places to visit, eat, etc which was very helpful. We never met, as he was out of town during my stay, but I did not encounter have any troubles while in Melbourne.
I would definitely stay here again if I'm ever back in Melbourne!
About the Host, Trevor
I love my home and love my home town of Melbourne. It gives me enormous pleasure to show of the wonderful city that Melbourne is. The other bonus for me if you come and stay in my home, is that enables me to take off and see more of the world. I've seen plenty of of it, but still want more.
while I'm here in Melbourne, I make the most of the vibrant theatre and comedy scene, and am devoted to my AFL team, Collingwood.
