Great location, close to trams, without being too noisy and an easy walk down to Acland St for all the cafe and cakes. Alan met us promptly at the arranged times which made for a nice easy visit to St Kilda.
I have recently stayed in this apartment for 10 days and can't speak highly enough of this residence. The apartment was very clean and comfortable ('loved the bed') and the location was just perfect for me! It has a great walk in robe, providing plenty of space, plus an iron and ironing board, vacuum cleaner and mop etc. I love going to buzzy Acland Street, which was only a 10 minute walk away, and St Kilda Road was very close by, for public transport into the city etc. A small dishwasher, reverse cycle air conditioning. a fold out couch in the lounge room and a nicely sized balcony to sit out on, were just a few of the things which enhanced my stay. It also had access to a laundry downstairs (containing 2 washing machines and 2 dryers), 1 off-street parking space plus a parking permit for street parking; excellent! The apartment was surprisingly quiet, being right at the front of a fairly large block, and other residents I came in contact with were all very pleasant. Alan was great, very friendly and personable - and I certainly look forward to contacting him again in the future, when I return to Melbourne and require accommodation that not only meets all my needs, but is also reasonably priced. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone who is looking to stay in the wonderful suburb of St Kilda! Enjoy!
Alan, he is very kind and humble host. I think he is the most valuable piece of this accommodation. The location, transportation was good enough to whom plan to enjoy city of Melbourne and the beautiful St. Kilda beach. I also like the Albert Lake Park very near to the apartment.
However, one thing I should comment is the sofa. It might be replaced or at least cleaned to maintain the whole value of this (website hidden). Kilda is not a cheap place to stay, but it is worth visiting for who want to enjoy their summer vacation.
Il signor Alan Zaks è stato molto gentile e disponibile e non ci sono stati particolari problemi nel rapporto con lui, a parte quello della lingua (il mio inglese è veramente scarso e lui naturalmente non parlava italiano) anche se a ciò ha supplito la presenza di mio figlio che parla inglese e che ha fatto da intermediario tra di noi.
In compenso lui si è fatto in quattro per sopperire alle nostre necessità, procurandoci anche un piumone in più quando ne abbiamo fatto richiesta.
L'appartamento è piccolo, ma comodo e ben tenuto e dotato di tutto il necessario (e anche di più) per un soggiorno piacevole. Manca il riscaldamento, ma a ciò supplisce egregiamente il condizionatore d'aria a pompa di calore che assicura una temperatura ottimale anche con il clima rigido ed invernale che abbiamo avuto durante il nostro soggiorno.
L'unico vero inconveniente è stato che la finestra del bagno non si poteva chiudere e da lì entrava un fiotto di aria gelida molto fastidioso quando si usava il bagno la notte o quando si faceva la doccia. Molto comodo invece, almeno per un fumatore come me, il poggiolo attrezzato con poltroncine, tavolino e posacenere e riparato da una cupola in plexiglas, ove era possibile ritirarsi a fumare.
La casa è situata in un quartiere in periferia, in una stradina laterale molto tranquilla e silenziosa, cosa che permette di dormire bene la notte anche per chi ha il sonno leggero. Vantaggio non indifferente è il fatto di essere a pochi passi dalla fermata dei tram 3 e 67 che permettono un facile e veloce collegamento sia con il centro della città che con il lungomare.
Nel complesso io e mia moglie abbiamo avuto un soggiorno molto piacevole in questo appartamento, e nel caso dovessimo tornare ancora a Melbourne sicuramente chiederemo ancora ospitalità al signor Zaks.
I hired Alan's apartment for my parents' trip to the Australian Open. They said he was very welcoming (he drove them to the local store). Overall very happy with this accommodation.
