St Kilda is a remarkable place. It is situated on one of the most picturesque points of the Bay a short distance from the city, has safe sandy beaches
St Kilda is home to a number of elegant gardens and reserves. There are the 6½ hectare heritage-listed Botanical Gardens just east of Barkly Street and the O'Donnell Gardens with its towering palm streets located right next to Luna Park. Much of St Kilda's coastline is also lined with gardens, stretching from the formal Catani Gardens along Beaconsfield Parade southwards to open expanses of lawn fronting the golden sands of St Kilda's (website hidden) Kilda is good base for exploring all that Melbourne has to offer. The city centre is just a short tram trip away, while the surrounding beachside suburbs of Middle Park, Albert Park and Elwood are within easy (website hidden) Kilda is also adjacent to Albert Park Lake which is surrounded by sporting facilities, parkland, a network of walking and bicycle tracks, and is home to the annual Australian Formula 1 Grand Prix.

Karen is a great host; very friendly and quick to respond to emails. The apartment is in a great location - It was clean and tidy, and had everything we needed. Highly recommended!
Great location, nice and tidy room, we really enjoyed our stay in Melbourne! I didn't get to see Karen but her daughter left the key for us so there was no trouble checking in. Thanks Karen!
Karen an David couldn't have been more helpful if they tried! From allowing us to check in early and then going out of the way to help us to the bus at 5am! And just being such friendly, welcoming hosts. It makes such a huge difference having hosts as brilliant as Karen and David!
The room was perfect, exactly what we were hoping for.
Self contained space, beautifully decorated (could be in a hotel in my opinion), kitchen, shower, bed, tv and washing all on your floor!
It was little touches too like being given towels and lovely smelling soap.
I could so easily go on, and location, dvd's, information given, cleanliness (all of which 10/10) but to try keep it short and sweet I definitely think you shouldn't pass on staying... Perfect place for two.

Karen was a great host , nice & easy to talk to. The place was very easy to spend a weekend in and was in a great location close to St Kilda and Chapel St.
Karen is a lovely host & the apartment was great with everything we needed. It is very close to the tram & quite central for eating out, etc. The apartment is nice & cool & there is no noise from the street.
Our stay with Karen was fantastic. She was able to pick us up at the airport which was a great start to our trip. She was also very flexible to our checking out which helped heaps.
The apartment was just like it looked in the pictures and had everything we needed, and the location was perfect to explore the city. It was also very quiet and we slept like baby's. Highly recommend staying with Karen to anyone.
Karen's place is very quiet, very clean and in a great spot for public transport. Karen is a most obliging hostess. During my stay the weather temperature went from 36c to 12c but the apartment stays around 20 - 22c. I would highly recommend Karen's apartment as a great place to stay in Melbourne.
My husband and I found Karen's apartment excellent for our needs. We were really just looking for a bed for 2 nights as we were out and about during the day. It was very modern, clean and comfortable, fair price with great walking access to Chapel st or transport to the city. I would not choose to stay here if I was looking for a romantic stay or intending to stay in my room as there was no window. Clever use of space.
I booked this apartment on behalf of my mother. She had a great time and Karen and Dave were very welcoming and helpful. She was impressed with the cleanliness and the small touches like toiletries, cereal and milk in the fridge. Plus the airport pick-up and drop-off options made a big difference for my Mum, not having to worry about organising how to get back to the airport. She would stay there again. Thanks Karen and Dave!
We loved our stay with Karen in St. Kilda! Great location and relaxing and comfortable accommodation. Karen is a very helpful and gracious hostess. The location is within pleasant walking distance to shops, LOTS of restaurants, and easy public transport. The studio is located in a residence, but with its own entrance/exit, and away from the home's residents, creating a quiet and private space. Another poster mentioned the location has no windows, which is true, but we didn't notice as we were out and about Melbourne all day anyway. We had a bit of bad weather during our stay, and it was nice to come back to our BnB and relax after being out in the rain and wind all day. Don't let the "no windows" deter you from staying here. We appreciated having our own kitchen for cooking and washing up. We'd love to stay again!
