The apartment is clean and very nicely decorated. It is situated in a quiet neighbourhood and within walking distance to the beach. 5 minutes drive to the colorful beach houses at Brighton beach, and around 10 minutes drive to the CBD. I really enjoyed my time staying in this lovely neighbourhood, Elwood is a very nice suburb to live in. Aphi is a great host with prompt communication and provided everything we need for the period of our stay. I would highly recommend this apartment to everyone who is looking for a quiet getaway.
This was the second time my parents stayed at Aphrodite's apartment during their visit from the UK, and their experience was consistent with the first. Please see original review for our feedback :-)
My parents visiting from the UK stayed at Aphrodite's apartment for 3 nights before a trip to Tasmania, and then 5 nights when we got back. With the exception of a small issue with wifi right at the beginning which was resolved the apartment ticked all the boxes and provided a pleasant space for them to stay. Aphrodite was a readily contactable, helpful host.
The apartment is absolutely beautiful, clean and well located. The beach with the nice esplanade and St Kilda with all nice cafés and restaurants are very close to the apartment. Round the corner there are a bakery and some shops as well. You can reach the next train station in 15 minutes walking, the next bus station in 5 minutes. Aphrodite is a very friendly and lovely host, her piece of advice was very helpful and she gave us a welcoming feeling absolutely. We really enjoyed the time in Elwood. Thanks a lot !
This is a great apartment in a fantastic location. Visitors to Melbourne may seek a location closer to the city, but this apartment offers a real opportunity to experience Melbourne life in one of its most appealing areas - and it's only a 20 minute train trip to the centre of the city. Elwood offers a real "village" experience, with its great cafes, parks, the canal and of course, the beach. The apartment itself is simply and stylishly furnished by Aphrodite, and is comfortable and offers all that you could wish for. Aphrodite is a lovely host - non intrusive, but helpful when needed. I would highly recommend this apartment.
We found this simply but stylishly furnished apartment very comfortable. Elwood is such a lovely part of the city - leafy quiet streets near the beach and some great shops and eating places, yet only a 15 or 20 minute walk to a tram or train ride into the CBD. Aphrodite is a very welcoming, warm and helpful host - highly recommended.

About the Host, Elwood Beach Apartment
Having travelled extensively for work & play I've been fortunate enough to have ‘Checked In’ to beautiful boutique hotels, comfy serviced apartments, countryside chateaus, beachside coastal pads, riads and cute summer huts!
The most enjoyable stays are often places that have the guest in mind. A comfortable stay equals an enjoyable holiday that offers the option of coming back to base and being in a beautiful space.
So after all this time I have finally listened to my inner travellers voice, gathered all my ‘Likes’ and created a modern apartment that accommodates comfortably to long & short term stays. The apartment is happily compact, with a pop of colour & layered with personality. All that is left to do now is welcome you to Melbourne & check you into Elwood Beach Apartment!
