Your stay will be in Richmond, one of Melbourne's most lively and trendy inner suburbs. 3 kms east of the CBD, it features the commercial strips of Victoria St (Asian dining), Bridge Rd (all kinds of dining and fashion retail) and Swan St (bars, restaurants & designer retail).
'The Warehouse' apartment is just around the corner from Swan St, with retail shops, cafes, post office, supermarket, bakeries, restaurants and bars just around the corner.
We are located between two train stations, Richmond and Richmond East, which are less than a 5 minute walk away. Or, hop on a tram (1 minute walk) and you'll be in the city in 10 minutes.
ID in the form of drivers licence or passport must be provided upon check in.
Alice's loft is very spacious, comfortable, and fun. The neighborhood is very convenient, with good coffee, restaurants, groceries, and the train station within a 5 minute walk. Alice and some artists work in the space next to the loft. They are friendly and willing to make recommendations if you need.
The loft *is* next to the train tracks. It didn't bother us, but it might be disruptive for kids.
Alice's place is divine. Both the studio and apartment spaces are light and open while still very private considering how close they are to the main street. Incredibly central - literally under ten minutes into town, even with a hopeless sense of direction like my own. The apartment is uniquely stylish. The artists we crossed paths with in the studio were all friendly and welcoming. Alice was very generous in letting us stow our luggage in the studio space upon checkout when our flight was delayed - and was diligent in keeping in contact during our stay. 100% recommend to anyone wanting to stay close to town somewhere affordable and with plenty of personality.
Alice's warehouse apartment was perfect for our kid free weekend getaway in Melbourne. The photos do not do justice to the apartment, it is very funky.
The location was perfect, with the Richmond train station and tram stops just a stones throw away. Alice was a great host, responding to all messages/request very promptly and she also met us at the apartment upon our arrival and showed us around.
We were made very welcome and given a great overview of the accommodation and the area in which we were staying. The apartment is very well placed, within walking distance to town and main attractions, with public transport, cafes and supermarkets also close by. Highly recommend this accommodation and the host.
Alice's apartment was lovely! We really enjoyed ourselves. Plus it's in a great location!
The warehouse was absolutely gorgeous. So close to shops, cafes and public transport. It really made our getaway weekend perfect. Would definitely stay again. Alice was a fantastic host and was really easy to get in touch and communicate with. Loved it.
Alice's Apartment was absolutely beautiful, and was easily accessible by public transport. The space was open, bright and airy, just like the photos. The artists in the studio next door were always happy and cheery, and it was lovely to see their artworks during our stay. The apartment itself was clean and wonderfully furnished, being wonderful to come home to and relax. The description was exactly what we received, and we look forward to staying again in the future!
Hi my name's Alice. I run an art studio and work at a couple of shops around town. I've set up this apartment for rent so that I can afford to stay in other Airbnb accommodation as I travel.
