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 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.
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.
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 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!).
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.
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.

David was really reactive to every enquiries that I made. His apartment is in perfect conditions. It is also well located, not even 5min away from public transportation as well as some great shops and restaurants. I stayed there for 6 days and it was perfect!
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.
Fantastically located apartment and very well equipped. Clean and comfortable. Very easy to make contact with David and replied quickly. Would recommend and will use again!! Thank you.
Despite the heat, we enjoyed the apartment very much. Great location, lots of excellent eateries and easy access to CBD and St. Kilda. David and Amy are a great couple, friendly and helpful. Hope we can stay there again.
David's apartment is great and in a very good location. He also provided us very clear information for how to access his apartment and how to get the key. Thanks a lot! I love Melbourne so much!!
We had a very comfortable stay. The location was great - so close to shops and transport. Instructions from the host were very clear and the apartment was well appointed with all the basics.. even some good books! Would definitely stay there again.
David's apartment is modern, clean and well-equipped. Can't think of anything that is lacking in terms of the apartment's facilities. It was easy to find and close to city transport. The best thing was that when one wanted to rest the neighbourhood is quiet and the bed comfortable so a good sleep is possible. The next best thing is the convenience of cafes/shops/city trams on Bridge street. Sometimes there are difficulties in locating/making the hook-up for AIRBNB places...in my experience. However with David's very clear instructions everything (entry/exit to apartment, operating appliances) went smoothly. Thank you David
My boyfriend and I stayed at David's apartment during our holiday in Melbourne, and found it to be perfect for us.
It is fitted with everything we needed during our stay; the dishwasher and washing machine were particularly handy.
The bed was very comfortable, and there was lots of storage space throughout the apartment, which was useful.
It is situated right next to Richmond's main shopping/food area, and it is very easy to catch a tram into the CBD with a stop a couple of minutes walk away.
The neighbourhood was friendly and safe, and there was a nice view over Richmond and the surrounding suburbs from the balcony.
We really felt at home at David's apartment, and David was super helpful and friendly.
We hope to come back and stay again!
