Ryan is super friendly and welcoming. he is easy to talk to and told us a whole bunch of cool places to go and eat around fitzroy. the apartment is very tidy and the bed is super comfy. While we were staying ryan was working on recipies and designs for his pop up restaurant coming soon, he is super creative and very interesting.
Highly recomend staying here.
It was wonderful to stay at Ryan's home, albeit briefly. His gorgeous apartment is exactly as it appears in the photos, and he is a fascinating man with a great story. He also took me in at the last minute. Thanks for having me Ryan!
Ryan's apartment is beautiful. So light and airy, and filled with the most wonderful artworks that he makes himself.
He was happy for my husband and I to arrive at his apartment early and leave our bags when we arrived in Melbourne on an early morning flight, and greeted us with a smile.
This was my first experience sharing someone's home on air bnb - usually I rent out entire apartments. Ryan was respectful of our space, but was keen for a chat whenever we were around.
Thank you for having us Ryan.
Thank you Ryan for a wonderful stay in your magical apartment. Although I'm originally from melbourne it almost felt like being in a different city, staying in this apartment. The decor resembles a very stylish loft in New York so much so, that even walking around Brunswick street felt like a chic and glamorous excursion. Thanks for a wonderful stay (and for the decorating inspiration!)
Ryan's place is great!! Perfect located between smith street and brunswick in the best neighbourhood Fitzroy. The apartment is in an old factory, so if you like industrial design and art, this is the place to go. Ryan is a nice host and an inspiring artist.
Ryan's apartment is a wonderfully located, beautifully designed space in one of my favourite parts of Melbourne. There are great cafés, restaurants and shops nearby, and strong transport links from which to explore Melbourne. A great place to stay.
