Cosy & spacious self contained studio apartment with its own street entrance. Very quiet, in inner city Melbourne suburb of Brunswick. Very close to restaurants, cafes, public transport, shops & bars of Brunswick. Close to Fitzroy, Carlton, Northcote.

The space

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.

Environmentally Sustainable
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.

The Location
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.

Community Garden
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 :)

Public Transport
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.

Best Regards

Both my partner and I said we would love to come back here, or spend more time with the super lovely and accommodating Anthony and his beautiful studio apartment. I couldn't recommend this place enough to people who want to be in the hip, fashionable, and still lively area of the coolest Melbourne suburbs, whilst being away from the craziness and traffic of the city center (although its only an easy tram ride away!). I really hope this isn't booked out next time we want to come and stay!

this is one of those places that you can't believe exists! it's in a nice and quiet neighbourhood, but just a few steps to a range of cafes, restaurants and bars, and really near town and other neat neighbourhoods. best of all is the space though - it's a private studio space with separate access, with a kitchen that anthony, the host, generously stocked with fruits, bread, cereal and spices for cooking with. the beds are cosy (with extra blankets and pillows too!) and the toilet has got good heating too. it's also really great because we could get a separate bed, so it's ideal for people who don't want to share beds! it was really such a great experience staying here. it's a perfect space in a perfect place. thanks so much, anthony!!

Anthony's was a great place to stay - he was a fantastic host, very helpful and welcoming. The studio was well equipped and very comfortable - the perfect home away from home for a short stay in Melbourne. Definitely recommend, and would happily stay again.

Anthony User ProfileAnthony is a superhost.

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"

Best Regards
