Kew Tranquility, Melbourne

Apartment - Private room · Pakington St, Kew, VIC 3101, Australia

The Space

I have a private room available in my apartment. The room is suitable for one person.

You will have full use of all other facilities including wireless internet. In the bathroom there is a washing machine and a clothes dryer. The toilet is separate from the bathroom. The kitchen has a cosy eating area, a gas stove, a fridge & a microware, plus all cooking utensils & equipment.

The lounge has heating, a TV & a DVD player. Off the lounge is a small balcony with a pleasant view over Kew.

Kew is one of Melbourne's older established suburbs where you will find banks, good coffee shops and several restaurants all within walking distance of the apartment.

If self catering is your style Kew offers an excellent selection of fresh food options in the local shops. You can park your car in Pakington, just ask me for the "Resident's Permit".

Travel to the CBD can take 20-40 min, depending on time of day. The 48 tram, at the end of Pakington Street (a 3-5 minute walk) will take you into the city via Bridge Road (clothes shopping), the MCG & Melbourne Park.

From the Kew Junction you can take the 109 tram that travels to the CBD via Victoria Street where there are numerous Vietnamese restaurants.

A bus from the Kew Junction gives you access to Brunswick Street, the Italian restaurants of Lygon Street and the CBD.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I enjoyed my stay in Kate's apartment. She is friendly and kind and helped me whenever I had any questions. The apartment is comfortable and clean. The guest room is basic but has a good bed and is quiet.
    The tram lines and shops are a short distance away and this was a very convenient place for me to stay. I have no hesitation in recommending the apartment to others.

  • I really enjoyed my stay with Kate at Kew Tranquility. This homely unit is close to public transport and only a couple of minutes walk to the bus or tram stop. It is situated in a lovely part of Melbourne and the city is not far away. There are lots of nice restaurants close by where you can have a meal or buy a takeaway. I highly recommend this place to stay, it will really enrich your visit to Melbourne.

  • Kate is a nice host, her apartment and room is quiet and neat as described, just note that it is positioned on the 3rd floor and without elevator.

    Actually I booked the room for 4 nights but only used 2, because I left the key in the room in New Year Eve and my phone as well. Unfortunately Kate was traveled so that I couldn't be able to contact her ask for spare key until the day I should check out I received the email. I still much appreciate her hosting.

    Respond to my first Airbnb experience in Boston, I got the review from the weird host, which was completely a disaster, got a dusty tiny room under the staircase with a removed lock hole at the door, no one was in the apartment, and with whole floor empty on the ground floor in dust, that's why I worried my safety and called the help from Airbnb. I never met the host after stayed there for a few days. Unfortunately that was my first time in Airbnb, I don't even know I should leave an honest comment for him.

  • Kate was very organised - everything I needed was there which made my trip entirely hassle free. Thanks Kate.
    Note however - Wifi connection is to a wireless modem which may have a smaller download quota than a broadband modem connection i.e. don't expect to download a video sequence/movie etc without first checking the download quota.
