The space

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.

Other things to note

No parties are allowed. This is a residential block and neighbours complain. They have my phone number. Loud parties, drugs or smoking in the apartment will result in eviction without refund if guests do not redress such behaviour. Please note THE SECURITY DEPOSIT WILL BE KEPT IN IT'S ENTIRETY IF PARTYING OCCURS. I've had to do this after bad experiences of guests who, even after being phoned by airbnb, have refused to shut down an all night party. Only once in six years, but I had no leverage. Now, I want some.

House Rules

Hi, I'm Barbara. Thanks for your interest in my apartments. I have three on this site. I operate one Paris and two Melbourne, Australia short stay designer apartments which are specifically set up for short stays. The Paris apt is located centrally and overlooks a park. 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
