Quiet, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment with amazing 12th floor views, right in the heart of downtown Melbourne. In building parking, Gym, Sauna, Pool and access to an indoor/outdoor entertaining area.
Opposite Melbourne's iconic Southern Cross station, Etihad Stadium, a tram stop and taxi rank, this place really is ideal for the traveler looking to be 'right where the action is'. Those coming straight from the airport can simply jump on the Melbourne Airport Skybus service (about $15AUD) - the bus stops directly in front of the apartment building!
Walking distance from Melbourne's Crown Casino, Southbank, award-winning restaurants, bars and clubs. If shopping is more your thing, this apartment sits opposite a D.F.O (Direct Factory Outlet) and is a ten minute walk from Bourke Street mall, Melbourne Central Shopping District and many boutique fashion stores.
There is even a push bike rental station within a 1 minute walk of the building, for those who live a more active lifestyle!
Dean was lovely and got back to me promptly with answers to questions I had for him. The apartment was exactly as the pictures showed and very close to many attractions. Especially to the skybus from the airport which was directly across from his home, that was a bonus! Dfo was also across the road, not much nice eateries near the apartment but if you walk around the cbd, you will find some lovely little places to eat at. Queen Victoria markets were about a 10-15 min walk and was a highlight for us, loved the food there and the atmosphere especially on a sunday with lively food stalls to try! Coles and woolies is also across the road from the apartment which was lovely too. Deans place is small but perfect for a couple wanting to enjoy melbourne cbd. We loved our stay, thanks-you so much dean, will definitely stay here again if we visit melbourne again:)
Oh and deans mattress was extremely comfy, great to sleep on after a long day in the city:)
Dean was a terrific host... accurate, responsive and helpful. A beautifully appointed apartment, in an extremely convenient part of town, with no surprises.
Fantastic location and apartment for a stay in Melbourne. Very easy to get around Melbourne with public transport close by. excellent communication with Dean and instructions on unit. Would certainly recommend for a city stay. thanks for sharing your home Dean
Let's face it : Dean's place is a dream (at least for us...) :
Located right in front of Sky bus (perfect to o to the airport), and close to the Tram, supermarket,... and 10-15 mn walk to the city center.
The flat is as per the pictures and has all the facilities needed for the perfect stay.
Communication with Dean is fast and efficiant.
Cet appartement est une merveille : proche du Tram de sky bus, des supermarchés, et du centre ville.
Il est conforme aux photos et très agréable à vivre avec tout ce que l'on peut souhaiter pour un bon séjour.
La communication avec Dean est rapide et surtout tres efficace.
Dean's apartment is situated at the very convenient location.Once we got off the Skybus from Southern Cross Station, his apartment is directly opposite, all we need is to just walk across the street and we arrived. Walk 8 mins toward La Trobe Street to catch the free city tram or 10 mins walk to flinders st.
His apartment is exactly what you seen in the photos just that we expected it to be slightly bigger but nevertheless is still sufficient space for two.
The fully furnished apartment provides us with all the things we needed. Washing machine for laundry, Oven to heat up our breakfast and fridge for our milk.
If I really need to pick on 1 thing that we didnt like, it might be the dust in his house. As the apartment is facing the main road and train station, so the place tend to be a bit dusty. So we didnt open the balcony door to prevent the dust from coming in.
Overall a wonderful stay at Dean's house and thanks for sharing your lovely apartment with visitors like us.
Excellent location - very comfortable apartment and the car park is a massive bonus. Dean is very professional and well organised as a host
Dean's unit was very comfortable and he was a welcoming host with very clear instructions on everything we need to do. It's a shame we didn't have more time to spend enjoying the building's facilities.
Thanks for sharing your home with us Dean!
WOW what a place!!! The location is unbeatable....if you are coming from the airport, the Skybus into the city (which everyone gets!) stop across the road - just a 2 min walk from the apartment. It is in the heart of the CBD right next to tram stops which can take you all over, and then Southern Cross Station is across the road which gives you train options all over Victoria.
The apartment is great with all the mod cons you need and with a HUGE 50" plasma and Foxtel with surround sound, Xbox and blue ray. Really bright with massive glass doors leading to a very large balcony with a 6 seater table and a BBQ.
Dean is also a great host with lots of info on how to get settled and how it all works in the apartment.
If I ever need to to stay in Melbourne again - I will be back in a shot!!
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
