Frank &Vince's place is comfortable and welcoming with oodles of style.
The checkin procedure is also very easy.
Great base to explore St Kilda andMelbourne city.
Honestly the place is amazing. When we arrived i thought 'omg matt blatt styled this home!' Everything was thought of and communication was very fast and helpful. The beds and pillows were so comfortable it made the girls weekend away even more perfect ☺. I highly recommend this listing and look forward to bringing my hubby here next time we are in Melbourne. Thank you for your hospitality.
Frank and Vince were fantastic at communication and the flat had everything we (website hidden) Kilda is such a great place with bars and cafés on our doorstep. We fell in love with the second hand bookshop round the corner. And I fulfilled my dream of having an early morning swim on my birthday - the longest day in Australia rather than the shortest day as it would've been back home.
This place was simply amazing. 10/10 the apartment was very close to the CBD only a 10min tram ride away. Although it looks a bit small it honestly did not feel that way at all, even the neighbours were very nice when we would run into them on our way out in the mornings. Just down the road about 2mins is a Woolies 3 tram stops and even a train station. It is beautifully furnished and supplied for and is everything you would want in an AirBnB place. Although we never actually got to meet the hosts, they had sent very clear and easy instructions on everything you could possibly ask., they were also extremely nice and ruthlessly efficient, every time we would message them we would receive a polite reply within the hour, honestly amazing I can't wait to stay here again when I'm back in Melbourne.
Frank and Vince were awesome from start to finish. The information provided is accurate and in fact better than the pictures! The sitting area is so inviting and cozy. Very well equipped kitchen. The location in St. Kilda is perfect walking distance from the coffee shops, restaurants and a great grocery as well. The tram line stop into Melbourne CBD is a block away. We also walked to the beachfront and the amazing places there. Bike rental nearby on Barclay street and the famous Ackland St. cakes and shopping are all walkable. Watching the fairy penguins at dusk is a must on the St. Kilda pier. Apartment was very clean and very secure and part of only four similar apartments. Neighbors friendly and helpful as well. Frank and Vince were super responsive to some wifi issues we had and resolved them promptly. Would highly recommend them as hosts and this apartment. Perfect for 2-3 people!
Hi Marie. So glad you enjoyed the apartment, the area and your time in Melbourne. We love to be able to offer this apartment to give visitors the chance to explore and experience all that St Kilda has to offer. Thanks for being such great guests and taking care of the apartment like your own home. Safe travels and you're welcome back any time !! Cheers Frank & Vince.
Very nice unit close to the tram stop so very easy access to both downtown Melbourne and St. Kilda. I was particularly impressed with how well the unit was decorated and we could feel right at home.
Stayed at Frank & Vince's apartment in St Kilda for 6 weeks with my family. The Apartment is great. Compact, but has everything you need. Very light and contemporary. The real plus is Frank and Vince, who cannot do enough to help. The washing machine broke and they arranged to have our washing done, almost on a daily basis-what amazing service! The apartment is close to many restaurants, shops and transport. I couldn't recommend this place enough!
