Spacious and private, self contained studio apartment (with separate street entrance!) in inner city Melbourne suburb of Brunswick. A short walk to cafes, shops, pubs and bars of Brunswick, close to Fitzroy, Carlton, Northcote and Thornbury.
Also close to the freeway from Melbourne airport (Tullamarine) making it convenient & easy for international visitors.
I provide as much as possible (towels, soaps, hairdryer, umbrella, internet, TV, air-con, full bedding, Myki smartcards, tea & coffee, milk, bottle of wine, pack of Tim Tams biscuits, etc :) so you can travel as lightly as possible.
The Studio Apartment
A new, furnished, freestanding studio apartment in the backyard of my house in Brunswick. Has a separate street entrance so you have complete independence - come and go as you please. Newly built with very high green credentials, it is really cozy and warm.
It accommodates 2 people in a very very comfy queen size bed (with King size duvet/quilt!). A fold out bed can be provided for an extra guest - inquire for details.
The Studio is very quiet, and some people have commented that its bigger than it looks in the photos.
Studio has a basic kitchen - bar fridge, single induction cooker, microwave oven, sink.
You are very welcome to use the full kitchen & laundry inside the house if you need more :)
With reverse cycle air-conditioning, it is very clean with modern bathroom, toilet and a very comfy queen size bed, and comfy fold out bed.
Also has wireless internet and big screen TV.
Car parking permit for 1 car (on the street) is provided.
The studio apartment has been built in an environmentally sustainable way, with the following 'green' features
- extremely good insulation
- electricity from 100% green sources
- solar hot water
- double glazed windows
Also, there is a nice deck for afternoon drinks (or any other time for that matter :)
There is a separate street entrance to the studio, so you can come and go as you please without coming through the house.
Brunswick is bursting with cafes, night-life, restaurants (Thai, Indian, Japanese, Lebanese, Greek, Italian (holds world record for "Best Martguerita") & lots more) within 5 minutes walk.
Brunswick is a student area which makes it vibrant and youthful (that's why I live here). However, the studio apartment is quiet as it is off the main strip.
Melbourne University is an easy bike or tram ride. There are trams to the city (20mins by tram), RMIT, Carlton within a couple of mins walk.
About 30 meters down the street is the local Community Garden - a very sweet place to hangout or just lay on the grass and read a book.
Very close to:
- public transport (trams 1 & 8, & trains). Tram to city is 5 min walk,
- restaurants, cafe's, bars.
- many specialty shops close, and large supermarket 10 mins walk
- and if you are a shopper, Sydney Road is the longest shopping strip in Australia, with lots of interesting shops of all descriptions.
Also, you are very welcome to jump on the bike and go for a ride. There is 1 bike here that you are welcome to use. (If need another, the bike shop around the corner does daily & weekly rentals). Melbourne has great bike paths, and one of the main ones is very close
If you have your own bike, storing it in the back yard is fine :)
I can loan you 2 or 3 Myki travel SmartCards for you to use on the Melbourne Public Transport system - this saves you having to buy your own (they cost $6 each)
You can simply add credit and use mine - easy :)
Public Transport is very close (both trams & trains).
Feel free to ask lots of questions - very happy to answer them :)
I look forward to you coming to stay.
Easy going overall, but no wild drinking sessions/parties - I have very nice neighbors and don't like to annoy them :)
Also, no candles (just too dangerous).
I've stayed at Anthony's last year and find it perfect for my needs. Extremely comfortable and well appointed and I've recommended this Air B n B to my friends and family as they all visit Brunswick due to family living there.
Anthony is a perfect host! Due to an early arrival, Anthony was kind enough to store our luggage and walk us to the local coffee house while he quickly got the studio cleaned. He was so welcoming, providing lovely cheese, crackers and wine for our arrival, plus fruit, bread, coffee, and just about everything you could possibly need to live comfortably. The studio is so well laid out, you could live there comfortably. We felt at home immediately. A bonus is use of public transport Myki cards – makes travel that much simpler. The studio is in a terrific location – about 1 block from Lygon Street which offers great restaurants, a grocery and trams to the City. You can’t find a better spot in Melbourne for location and comfort with a very generous host, who is genuinely interested in you and making your stay stress-free! Anthony is top notch and we hope to return. Thanks, Anthony!
This was our second time staying at Anthony's place and once again it was just wonderful! It's so quiet here, the location is stellar, we already miss the amazing shower. Anthony is a thoughtful and caring host. My husband and I were so happy when we walked through the gate and felt like we were at home! Thanks again Anthony and we'll see you next time we're in Melbourne!
Anthony was there to greet us on arrival and was wonderfully welcoming - the fridge was well stocked as was the fruit bowl and he had 2 tram cards for us to use. The room had everything you could want, cosy, comfy bed and great shower. Also surprisingly quiet for centre of city. We had a good stay.
My partner and I cannot thank Anthony enough for being so accommodating of my father in-law. We thank Anthony for his hospitality, generosity and flexibility. It gave a great peace of mind when returning to check in for the second time.
Anthony us an excellent host, extremely helpful and approachable.
The studio is in a great spot, literally a couple of minutes off lygon and it has everything you need + more.
Anthony has put such care into this apartment, its fantastic. Everything was clean and well maintained. The apartment is packed with so many things that you might need for a stay in Melbourne.
Anthony was so accommodating and even helped us get a special chair for my father.
Lovely host and apartment.
Hello - my name is Anthony and I live in Brunswick, Melbourne.
I am a musician and engineer and interested in finding solutions to climate change.
In my music work, I love singing, playing bass and performing. I do everything from performing at weddings, to parties, to busking (which I love).
I enjoy traveling and exploring cities of the world, whether in Australia or overseas (Europe especially beguiling - London, Paris, Berlin).
I am into sustainability, pretty relaxed and easygoing, don't smoke, and enjoy meeting up with friends for coffee and films :)
Also, I have many interests, and tend to go out a lot of the time, rather than being house-bound.
AirBnB says to include a Life Motto ..... well, I like this one..... "Find something you love doing and you'll never work a day in your life"
