I booked this place to stay for 2 months and had an amazing time. The view over the city is incredible and South Yarra is a great area to base yourself in as you can either catch a train or tram near by. The apartment is also close to supermarkets, nice cafes and a nice movie theater.
Kate was an awesome host, very warm and welcoming and easy to get on with, I highly recommend this place!
A big THANK YOU Kate! You are a wonderful host. Even though, I stayed at Kate's for two nights, it was a wonderful experience. The apartment is clean and located in a fantastic location. On the ground floor of the building, there are supermarkets and cafe. In addition, you have a bird's eye view of the city from the bedroom. Kate is a kind host and made me feel at home. I would definitely stay here again! Thank you, Faizal
We had a great time staying at Kates apartment. It was more than we hoped for and exactly as the photos show. The facilities included - swimming pool, sauna etc were a well deserved treat after a busy day exploring the city and surrounds. The gym was good to start your day with too. A shopping centre convienitently situated downstairs allowed us to pack picnics for day outs and cook lunches and dinner easily.
The location in South Yarra proved to be wonderful. We walked along the river into the city and Botanical gardens, taking in all the views along the way. The train station was a short walk and easy to access the suburbs of Melbourne. Tram stops also took you right into the heart of Chapel Street. We found so many bars, restaurants, shops and cinemas. Everything you could have wanted was only a short step away.
Kate was a welcoming host who let us make her place our home over our 2 month stay. She always had ideas and suggestions, happy to answer any questions we had. Kate has a wealth of knowledge about Australia and kindly helped us to plan our next trip to Tasmania.
We would highly recommend this apartment as a place to stay.
I rented this room for a month, this house is fantastic, it has everything. the appartment is modern and kate keep it super clean. the view is breath take, and the position is perfect. everything you need is downstairs grocery, pharmacy, café, restaurant etc stop tram 5 minutes walk, train station 7 minutes walk. catch the tram n-8 and will be in the city in 15 minutes or otherwise catch the train ( 7 minutes). kate is a very good host, she helps me with everything i asked to her, very quite and really kind. I couldn't choose a better place. Thanks kate
We had a very nice time at Emma and Daves House! It's perfectly located to explore the city !
Amazing location with spectacular views of Melbourne - and waking up to see hot air balloons near the MCG was special. The location is so convenient - close to train, tram and with offstreet parking available closeby. Plus there is both a food court and supermarket in the same building. AND, there is also a gym and swimming pool for use between 6am and 10pm. I loved meeting the host who ensured I had everything I needed - clean, lots of hangers, hairdryer, fluffy towel, comfy bed and coffee. And whisper quiet. Highly recommended.
About the Host, Kate
I am originally from Tasmania, but I have lived in Melbourne for 20+ years. I love the inner-city life style and everything it has to offer - great restaurants, great coffee and a wonderful mixture of people and cultures.
