Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The apartment is great. Very stylish and modern and with everything you may deserve. During my stay I never missed something. The hosts are very very relaxed. Check in was absolutely no stress. I highly can recommend this apartment. The location is perfect. Very quite but still only a few steps from public transportation and all the restaurants and shops on Toorak road.

  • Great location, very close to S.Yarra Station. A nice and cozy place to stay, me and my mom stayed for 9 nights and we loved it. Sean was very helpful and sincere person. We got everything we need during our stay (Towel & other bathroom amenities, tea, coffee, snack, dish washing liquid, detergent, tourist brochures inside the drawer on the side table, etc). Everything was clean except the washing machine, the inner part of the door (sealant) needed some wipes before we used it due to lot of dust and hair from previous visitor's use. Other than that was perfect. Thanks Sean!

  • Sean & Lyn are an amazing couple and great hosts! Lyn was there to greet me when I arrived and gave me the friendliest welcome. Sean is just as wonderful and I couldn't be happier to have stayed at their lovely apartment as my first home in Melbourne.

  • This apartment is wonderful - it's clean, almost new and bright. It was very warm and had everything we needed. It's secure and I felt very safe with my 2 young teenagers. We watched the lights of Melbourne at night from the rooftop garden - very special. It's in a great location, very close to the South Yarra Train station and a tram stop and the shops of South Yarra - Toorak Rd and Chapel St.
    Sean was very accommodating and extremely easy to deal with.
    I would recommend it for anyone looking for a 1 bedroom apartment near the city.

  • Sean was a very great host! We enjoyed our stay over there with a great view. And it's a very safe and silent place to stay as well.

    In terms of convenient wise, it was perfect as well! It's just less than a 5 mins walk to the south Yarra station and you can head to the city within the 10 mins train trip!

    Overall it's a thumbs up place to stay!

  • Excellent apartment in the heart of South Yarra. Sean and Lyn have fitted it out so that it is very well equipped with all you will need for a great stay. As hosts Sean & Lyn were exceptional, answering all of my queries promptly. I can honestly recommend this as the perfect place to stay in Melbourne.

  • This place was perfect. A few minutes walk from all kinds of restaurants and shopping on South Yarra, and 10-15 minutes walk to the botanic garden. Also very close to a metro stop. And the apartment was perfect -- very clean and comfortable, with nice views from the patio. Fast internet. Highly recommended.

  • Sean & Lyn's property is terrific, really modern, functional and in an excellent location about 3 minutes walk to all the public transport you could need. They're very easy to deal with and met me at the property with keys to show me around. The roof terrace is fabulous! We got lucky and watched an amazing lightning show across the city. As others have mentioned, there are very generous treats too. Thanks very much for having us in your flat. It's super! Much much better option than a hotel!

    December 2012
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sean and Lyn's GEM. The apartment was impeccably clean and contained all the amenities we needed. The location is ideal for access to the train and a couple of excellent cafes. We highly recommend their place in South Yarra for a nice neighborhood feel yet only a 5 minute train ride the downtown.
