David was a great host and made us feel exceptionally welcome in his lovely pad. Not only is it a well furnished but also very centrally located to both the city and other Melbourne hotspots.
Communicating with David was easy and always responded quickly.
Thanks again for having us to stay and will be sure to look you up again when next we're in Melbourne.
David was fabulous - very helpful and has great attention to the smaller details. We loved the place, it was indeed very immaculate and spacious. It was also very cosy and he had provided good level of supplies in the pantry and fridge ahead of our trip. Thanks ! The location is great, it's just 1 min walk or so to the corner of Toorak Rd which is a nice stroll towards Chapel Street for our meals and some shopping. We have a lovely time at this apartment and would definitely choose to come back here next time.
Great apartment in a great location!! Great owner to deal with, very accommodating.
Close to many great cafés, shopping, park, transport, botanical gardens. We had a wonderful stay here.
David was very responsive, he proactively contacted me himself before the trip and was available throughout. His place is very homely, and as shown in the pictures. There was almost everything that one could need in a house. The location was perfect for us; close to the CBD, with tram/bus stop just down the lane, and close to a convenience store.
We reached very tired from our flight and we were very happy to find that David had stocked the kitchen with breakfast items; there was milk, cereal, orange juice, cookies, etc.! Also, he had left the public transportation cards for us to charge and use, it really helped us get around the city.
We loved our stay at David's place. Thanks!
Our stay in David’s house was perfect from the beginning to the end !!
David kindly welcomed us at the arrival with a friendly smile and a clear explanation of the house facilities adding also some nice extra cares: groceries for the breakfast, 3 Miky card (public transportation) ready to use.
The Flat has a lot of natural light form morning to evening and is very quiet, but never the less is super convenient from there to get in all the Melbourne landmarks.
We will come back 100% !!
David was an amazing host to my sister, neice and nephew. They thoroughly enjoyed their stay at David's conveniently located and ultra-comfy and spacious South Yarra pad. From the minor details like juice and cereal, and Myki cards (for public transport) for everyone, to the very tasteful and liveable spaces, it was home away from home. David had no problems with my family having a (very) late checkout, and was happy to meet me with the keys and a walkthrough when my sister's flight was delayed. It was a pleasure to have a host like David, and I'll certainly stay at his lovely apartment again, should the opportunity arise.
Amazingly spacious apartment in a great location, within a short walk of Chapel Street, the Botanical Gardens and South Yarra train station. The host was fantastic and even left us breakfast for the following morning given that we were arriving late at night. We had a couple of questions during our stay regarding the internet/check-out time etc. I just sent a text to the host, who replied almost immediately and was incredibly helpful. Would definitely stay in this apartment again and recommend to friends. Everything was provided - even Myki cards - to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Cannot rate highly enough.
