The Space

Artist Warehouse Apartment in Fitzroy

Located in the heart of Fitzroy on Rose Street in between Brunswick St and Smith St in one of the old MacRobertson factories which was formally a chocolate factory in the 1950’s.

I am renting out the second bedroom in the newly renovated warehouse apartment, the medium sized room is fully furnished has built in robes, queen sized bed, lounge, books, and large warehouse style windows and polished floors.

The flat rotates around the themes of art, literature, good food and sustainability with a big open space with a large kitchen and dining room looking out onto a well stocked vertical garden (currently under construction) so if you love to cook, read, relax and enjoy art this place is for you.

Ideal for guests in Melbourne for a short time who want to live like a local in vibrant Fitzroy and who are interested in staying in lovely bright, Art filled apartment and want something much more then a hotel.

Located in a quiet street yet within a very short walk of cafes, restaurants, shops, galleries, studios, bars, pubs, book shops, vintage shops and with large amounts of clothing shops …etc

The #86 and #112 trams are just at the end of the street or take a relaxed walk down Brunswick St via the gardens into the city.

We provide towels, beach towels, sheets, blankets, wi-fi internet, Washer/Dryer and lockable storage space in bedroom, car parking space on request.
The large kitchen has a gas stove and electric oven, plenty of cutlery and crockery, plus plenty of herbs

I have plenty of guide books of all the best food, coffee and drinks places of the cool Melbourne foodie scene. I’m also happy to answer any questions you have about things to see and do, there is always a few art openings going on each night in Melbourne.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Ryan’s place is a living art museum. Every item in the apartment has a story to tell. The place is spacious (European standard, not American) and clean. The vertical garden is awesome. It was delightful to stay and converse with Ryan. He is super chill and has answers to everything!

  • Ryan's loft was really nice - exactly as depicted in the pictures. The location couldn't be better! right between the two most exciting streets of Fitzroy. It has close access to public transport via the tram however it is a short and lovely walk into the CBD. You are spoilt for choice when it comes to food and shopping, with some of Melbourne's best cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques all right round the corner. Ryan's place although extremely central is very quiet, Kloe and I slept extremely well each night.

    Ryan is a great host, who is always happy to suggest places of interest. He is a nice guy who is easy to get along with, particularly if you are into food, art, fashion, architecture and travelling. His place is perfect for a week or even just a weekend in Melbourne. Would 110% recommend!!!

  • I keep coming back and plan on sending my friends here, must be super good.

  • Ryan is your ideal combination of renaissance man/host, avid designer and gardener, local expert on good coffee and culture and occasional martini maker. Staying at his flat was a real highlight of my trip and would gladly call in again!

  • I really enjoyed my stay here. Ryan's place has very thoughtful interior display and it is beautifully presented. The location is convenient to explore the Fitzroy area with many unique shops and nice restaurants, yet his place is away from the busy main street should you wish to relax and have some downtime. It is also very easy to get out to the Melbourne CBD via tram. Ryan's warm and friendly nature also made my stay very comfortable. Thank you Ryan! :-)

There is close access to public transport and you will be spoilt for choice with some of Melbourne's best cafes, restaurants, bars and boutiques in walking distance.

  • Ryan's apartment is the perfect way to experience Melbourne. I heard it was once a chocolate factory. The location is perfect and the interiors are magazine quality. Ryan is the sound kind of person who you want to know in life and I can verify his legitimacy.

  • What a perfect stay! We enjoyed Ryan's home for 5 nights and had an awesome stay! Ryan is such a great and friendly host - we really enjoyed all the great talks! The apartment is perfectly situated in the heart of hipster-town Fitzroy with only a few steps to the coolest cafés, bars and restaurants Melbourne has to offer! It's not the biggest apartment but we've been exploring the city the whole days anyway! Was our first airbnb-booking and thanks to Ryan we had a perfect first experience! We'd recommend the apartment and hope to be back one day!
