About
Hi I’m Jack – my wife Stacey and I own this beautiful Art Deco apartment in the Botanic Garden’s precinct in Melbourne. It's so close to the best of everything that Melbourne is famous for – shopping with Chapel St (South Yarra), Toorak Rd (South Yarra) & Bridge Rd (Richmond) all within walking distance. The best sports grounds in Australia including the MCG, Australian Open Tennis Arena, Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix and CBD all within 2 klms. South Yarra and the CBD have many of the best bars and restaurants and in typical Melbourne style you’ll have to scour the backstreets and laneways to find them – we would be happy to make recommendations to our favourite places and sites. Stacey and I also have an amazing old homestead in the middle of the Yarra Valley famous wine country, which we will also offer through AirBNB. About us - I’m an entrepreneur focused on helping the best Australian technology and digital start-ups succeed through funding and mentoring. Stacey is in the Fashion Industry and travels the world promoting emerging Australian brands to the rest of the world. We love everything about Melbourne, meeting new people, and travelling as much as we can – we are now eager to use AirBNB for all of our trips and hope to meet some of you through the process.
