Sun-filled apartment, great locale!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Lyndhurst St, Richmond, VIC 3121, Australia

This apartment is a terrific base for visitors to Melbourne. It is suitable for short-term visitors, who want a central location and plenty of distractions, and also those wishing to stay longer.

The Space

The apartment is fully furnished, and will suit a single visitor, a couple, or even a small family. It is recently renovated, easy to maintain, well lit (thanks to large windows facing north, south and east), and commands a fantastic view east towards Mt Dandenong. We are located on the second floor, so there are some stairs to climb, and the building does not have an elevator.

The apartment is secure and situated on a quiet street. Make it yours while in Melbourne.

Guest Access

Amenities include a dishwasher, washing machine, television, microwave oven, iron & ironing board, and a WiFi modem. We can provide a cot suitable for a young child (under two years) upon request.

Interaction with Guests

We live only a short distance away, and are happy to help with anything that can make your stay more comfortable. But we also like to ensure you have complete privacy during your stay, and we won't bother you unless absolutely necessary. You can call or email us if you have any questions about your stay in Richmond.

The Neighborhood

The apartment is only minutes from the Bridge Rd shopping and entertainment precinct. There you will find the best new fish and chipper in Melbourne, The Fish Market (272 Bridge Rd).

For those who love Asian food, Victoria Street and its vibrant 'Little Vietnam' is only a brisk walk away. Our picks are Quan 88 (located at 88 Victoria St) and Pho Hung Vuong 2 (150 Victoria St). Both serve great Vietnamese food at affordable prices.

Sports-lovers are in for a treat too, with the Melbourne Cricket Ground (cricket, Australian Rules football, sports museum), AAMI Stadium (home to three football codes), Rod Laver Arena (tennis) and more located in the direction of the city.

Bridge Rd and Chapel St (South Yarra) are well-known fashion strips. Swan St is also teeming with places to shop and eat. We recommend Agapi (Greek food) and Richmond Oysters (superb!).

Getting around

Public transport is fantastic in this neighbourhood; it is a part of Melbourne where you can comfortably live without a car. On Bridge Rd, trams 48 and 75 take you into the city in 15 minutes via the MCG, or out to Hawthorn, Camberwell and other eastern suburbs. The No. 70 takes you to the city, via Rod Laver Arena (home to the Australian Open every January). The 78/79 tram (on Church St) goes north to Victoria Street, and south to South Yarra and St Kilda. Richmond and East Richmond stations are only a 15 minute-walk away.

Other Things to Note

The kitchen is modern and well stocked with all essential items, but we do not have an oven. It is sufficient for most short-term visitors who wish to cook.

There is only one bed, but we can supply a baby's cot upon request. The apartment is therefore suitable only for small numbers of guests.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Stayed here with the missus for a week to visit friends and explore Melbourne and we had a great stay. Excellent location, with tasty food and trams a very short walk away.

    The place was very clean and stocked with all the essentials. The best thing in the place were the pillows! So comfortable!

    It was really easy to deal with the David and everything he said was true.

    Response from David:

    Hi Geoff -- thanks for your comments, and praise for the pillows! We love them too. FYI, they cost about $50 for a pair, at Manchester Warehouse on Bridge Road in Richmond. The brand on the tag is 'Killearneys of Australia'. Hope you can find some soon!

  • David's apartment was perfect for our long weekend in Melbourne to attend a wedding with our eight month old. The apartment contained everything we needed and was very comfortable with plenty of storage space for a one bedroom unit. It was easy to get to and extremely close to transport and attractions. We would definitely recommend staying here and would love to come back.

  • ... it was our first visit in Melbourne and we now really love this city. The apartment is good located, quiet and piecefull and near to shops, restaurants and all what you need. To the CBD is only a short trip by tram (15 min).
    We could not meet our host David because he was travelling, but all was well prepared and organized and it was easy to communicate with him. He answered verry friendly and quickly all our questions. Thank you David!
