About this listing
Comfortable, quality art house feel with air and light minutes from the most exciting and eclectic street in Melbourne, Acland St. Enjoy unusual decor, a mix of old-world and modern close to beach and botanical gardens.
This and an apartment next door, the mirror image of each other, can accommodate up to 12 people. Put the price for 6 into the search and the price you get will be for EACH apt. Please note, the price is not the same if you add 12 guests to one apt booking. My neighbour's listing link is https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/2012694?guests=6&s=PM72
This gorgeous apartment has a new Bosch dishwasher, Turkish leather couch, antique lacquered wardrobe, hand knotted Shiraz carpet, luxury linen and original art work.
The apartment is a three minute walk from Acland St St Kilda which is the oldest, most popular area of Melbourne. Not only visitors from Interstate and Overseas visit Acland and Fitzroy Streets (nearby), but even Melburnians flock there on weekends.
At either end of Acland St are trams to the city (20 minutes) and Balaclava (5 minutes) where there's another whole world of interesting shops.
Acland St itself has the best restaurants and cake shops you'll find in Melbourne, from Blue Corn, the best home made Mexican food (hand made burritos, tacos and tortillas) you'll find in this half of the globe, to Leroys, the coffee connoisseur's choice, delicious Chinta Ria's Malaysian kitchen and Santa Anas Tapas Bar to die for.
A three minute walk behind the apartment is the 100-year-old St Kilda Botanical Gardens with gazebos, a lake and rose garden. The beach is ten minutes by foot. There is a bicycle path which goes for kilometres along the beach and you can hire bicycles nearby at St Kilda Cycles.
Large rooms, sunny, an aesthetic pleasure. New ikea kitchen.
Delightful atmosphere with lovely lamps, original artworks and intriguing, unique prints. Kitchen has good quality cooking gear.
Please note, for stays of three nights or less, a cleaning surcharge of $60 applies. This should be left in cash for the cleaner in the apartment.

This is such a great spot - so central to everything in St Kilda, cafe's and shops - loved it! Barbara was a fantastic host - everything was so easy. Highly recommend.
Loved Barbaras art deco apartment. Easy walk to restaurants, shops, etc. Check in was a breeze. She also provided us with free parking permit and wifi which was great. Cosy and comfortable place away from home. Thanks :)
I had a great stay at Barbara's apartment, which is a close and convenient walk to all the shops in St. Kilda and a quick Uber ride to downtown. Although she was out of town her neighbor met us to check in (very early, around 9am).
The apartment itself is well appointed with a comfortable living room, 2 bedrooms (each with a larger bed suitable for a couple and an additional twin bed); this setup is great 4-6 people. Barbara apartment was well stocked with tea and soap/shampoo. I would definitely stay here again.
Barbara and manager Ian were very contactable and accommodating with arrival and departure times. The apartment was in a great spot, close to Acland St and public transport. It had everything we needed and was warm and welcoming.
Well appointed apartment in a superb location only a stones throw from Acland St. where all the action is! Everything was clean and tidy, all the linen clean and fresh.
Amazing location. Was with in a wonderful walk to plenty to do and see. Will be looking to stay here every chance we get when in town on business! Fantastic service with zero issues was exactly as described.
Barbara was an excellent host. Because our group had eight people she helped to organise for us to rent both her apartment and another next door. Both apartments were great and in an excellent location. Ian, the owner of the second apartment was who I dealt with most and he was very accommodating and helpful. I would highly recommend staying in either Barbara's or Ian's apartments.

The Melbourne ones are in and around St Kilda. My apartments are located near all the wonderful street life the area has to offer, close to cafes and trendy restaurants as well as public transport. If you want to experience this vibrant community, which attracts overseas visitors and Melburnian locals, or have any more questions, please let me know! Thanks for looking. Barbara
