Quiet Studio Next to Train Station

Apartment - Private room · Beetham Parade, Rosanna, VIC 3084, Australia

Private self contained ground floor studio apartment located in downtown Rosanna. It is a one minute walk to the train station, but quiet, because we are nestled deep in the Rosanna shopping strip, with vibrant cafes and eateries. Take your pick from the Greek, Italian, Thai, Chinese and Indian restaurants.

If you don’t feel like going out, you have a kitchenette, on demand movies on the 42 inch plasma TV, mostly free international phone calls or fast internet.

Five minutes away, we have Rosanna Parklands, a 15 hectare park with creek, playground, and even a tree house. If you want to explore further afield, you can use the bicycles.

The apartment is 3 years old, in a heritage building. The building formerly held a shoe cobbler and a conveyancer. The room has a private ensuite toilet, but you share the upstairs shower.

There is parking nearby, and Melbourne city is a 29 minute direct train ride from our doorstep, with at least 3 trains peer hour. We are 2km from Austin/Mercy Hospital and 4km to La Trobe University.

Transport from the airport is easy; take the Melbourne airport bus (Skybus) from outside the airport terminal to Southern Cross train station in downtown Melbourne, and then cross over to the Eltham/Hurstbridge metro train line. Get off the train at Rosanna station, and you are there.
Alternatively, it is about $50 by taxi.

My roommate and I live on the floors above, and we are are very friendly; we are from Canada and Singapore, and together, we can communicate in French, Spanish, English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, Teochew, Malay, and Indonesian. We work and study at La Trobe University during the day, but are happy to visit when we are home.

  • It was a pleasure to stay with Dennis and Lee; they are friendly, easy-going and well organised. The studio room is well equipped with a TV, ironing board, hairdryer, mutli-plug adapters, kitchenette etc. and has a bathroom. The shower is one floor up which is shared, however this was not an issue as the hosts are very relaxed. Also appreciated the big bowl of apples upon arrival! The flat is conveniently located next to the Rosanna station and there is a cute little cafe down the street called Miss Marie which serves excellent coffee and good food.

  • Dennis and Lee were very welcoming and friendly hosts. The studio is a great base, with it's own TV, toilet and kitchen, and is kept extremely clean. Wish I'd had more time during my stay to spend with them as they are lovely people!

  • Dennis was welcoming and friendly. I would stay there again and recommend them to others.

  • Dennis and Lee were the best hosts anyone could hope for. Kind, friendly, courteous, and humorous. They even took us out to some delicious Malaysian food, and Dennis and I geeked out over many matters, having shared similar passions. Dennis must make Canada proud. Super highly recommended!

  • Dennis has a kind and friendly personality. The studio is comfortable, quiet and well-equipped with necessary stuff such as fridge, TV and iron. It also has very easy access to Rosanna train station, IGA supermarket and Subway. All in all, I recommend this place to everybody.

  • This is a great place to stay with friendly hosts. Easy access to the train and a few eating places close by. The studio is very quiet given its location.

  • Iam Dr. Bindhu Priya and Iam happy to share that I enjoyed my stay for a month at Rosanna hosted by Mr. Dennis Wollershiem. The apartment is just next to Rosanna railway station and is very accessible at all hours of the day. There are lots of restaurants, supermarkets near by. The hosts were very friendly and they provided me with all the required amenities for my stay(microwave, warmer, TV, Wi-Fi, laundry, Myki card etc.). Hence I recommend this apartment for people wishing to stay in suburbs of Melbourne.

    July 2013
  • This studio is very cosy place to stay. It's filled with everything you need - room's own ensuite and small kitchen with mini-fridge are very very handy. Big real bed and wide table - what else anyone could ask for ?
    Sometimes nearest street could be a bit noisy, but most of the time - it's very quiet.
    Your hosts, Dennis and Lee are exceptionally friendly and open for any discussions. It was a pleasure to stay in their room. Thanks a lot, Dennis ;)
