Description

The Space

Welcome To This Unique Location In The Heart Of Melbourne!

The Loft:
Come stay and enjoy a 2 Bedroom loft apartment in super South Melbourne all to yourself/selves. The recently renovated apartment has everything we have thought of that one could want including:
Wifi
Cable TV
Off-street parking
Two bedrooms one with Queen bed and one Double bed
Two single adult size foldout beds
Full kitchen including vintage milkshake maker
Eclectic designers furnishings
Glamorous bath-tub!!

In addition you can enjoy a bicycle, karaoke, games, dvd's, treadmill, ipod dock and vintage hi-fi. Even have an AWESOME Landrover Defender that is available for rent!

The Area:
You will enjoy the perfect location in a quiet street but close to everything Melbourne has to offer!

Getting around is easy with the City tram literally at the door. There is a pub across the road and you will be in walking distance to South Melbourne market, botanical gardens, loads of shops and Albert Park Lake precinct.

There are some cosy coffee shops and restaurants just up the road. Melbourne is famous for its vibrant dining culture and the possibilities are endless. There are enough high quality restaurants to explore!


A Little About Us - Your Hosts:
I have great local knowledge of the area having lived and run businesses in South Melbourne for 10 years and very willing and able to help (as live next door!).

Come And Stay In The World's Most Liveable City.

Guests have the entire Loft to themselves. There are two bedrooms, one with a queen size and one with a double bed. There are then two adult size single foldout beds which can be set out in the main living area and thus provide great accommodation option / value for a group of 6.

Laundry facilities are shared but available at all times. Single car spot available directly in front of the Loft.

I love meeting Guests and sharing local knowledge of living in South Melbourne for the last ten years and watching the suburb continue to evolve into a very special Melbourne "village"

South Melbourne has that wonderful blend of historical significance, modernity and village atmosphere all with a location that is second to none. Between the city, the beach, Albert Park Lake, the Botanical Gardens and of course with the heart of the suburb the wonderful South Melbourne market.

For the little one's there are parks galore, swans to feed and trams to ride.

I discovered South Melbourne ten years ago - and i am still discovering "new" charms....all the time.

Ok super convenient public transport. Firstly the airport trip is around 25 minutes in a cab which until Melbourne airport link arrives is the best transport option for a group.

Secondly there is a tram stop outside the front door for the number 1 tram - takes around 6 minutes into Federation square. A few hundred meters walk you will be able to pick up the 112 which takes you to the Casino and Convetion centre (5 minutes) and then up Collins St.

There is one parking spot in the drive directly in front of the Loft - free parking worth its weight in gold in inner city Melbourne these days

Everything and anything you would ever need to shop, eat and drink is in walking distance

Highlights are:
o South Melbourne Market (open all weekend) corner of Cecil and Coventry St (basically turn right out the door, walk to the lights (clarendon st), turn right, walk 3 blocks to Coventry and turn left (its at the end)
o Coventry St itself is filled with awesome shops and even better cafes (take your pick they are all superb
o Pubs (plenty of good ones including the water rat over the road, honey bar up on the clarendon st corner, golden gate and the George on Coventry st)
o Resto's
o Excellent Greek at spitiko on Park st (just cross over clarendon and keep walking - if you hit cecil st you have gone to far)
o Excellent small plate style food on clarendon half way along to Coventry st at Hercules Morse
o Excellent pub dining at Lamaro's on cecil (bit more upmarket)
o Great seafood at the south Melbourne market Claypots on the corner of cecil and York – very atmospheric
o Really good cheap Vietnamese at Wat da Pho (on Clarendon just over Coventry) – on the left side of the road if you are walking into the city
o Also a short tram or tax ride away is the Albert Park Hotel (where the cool kids hang out)
