Have stayed there before, will stay there again. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms means it's easy to share if travelling with a friend, as we did.
Close to Toorak Rd restaurants, takeaway, supermarkets are all nearby, and there's a great french bakery only 100m away. Further afield, it's not a great stretch to walk to the NGV or into the city, via the Botanic Gardens.
Apartment is clean and neat, and has a great cooking space with a well-stocked cupboard.
A perfect base for a long weekend in Melbourne.
This apartment is beautiful. Very large with everything you could require for your stay. The area is obviously very affluent which leaves you feeling safe wandering about during the day and night. The proximity to shops/bars/restaurants and most importantly the excellent tram system is fantastic.
The host David was waiting when we arrived, helped my husband with the bags and provided us with large amounts of useful information. The breakfast items provided are excellent.
We did have a quite serious issue on our first night and did feel that the hosts response was inadequate however the issue sorted itself and we fully enjoyed the rest of our stay.
Melbourne is a fantastic place to go however the flies ruin it. So if i have any advice to give it would be make sure you go in a month that has less flies, its disgusting.
I would recommend this apartment.
We have stayed here many times and enjoy the flat and neighborhood more each time.
The house that David has for his guests is fantastic. When we arrived to his place in the South Yarra area of Melbourne, he came out to greet us and was kind enough to assist us with our things upstairs to his house (condo). The house was exactly as advertised and looked the same and often better than the pictures on the website. Once we settled in, David explained things around the house and has a booklet outlining the area and how to get around. What we really liked was the fully functioning kitchen as well as the washing machine, which we used often. Traveling with my 75-year-old mom, the house was perfect being two bedrooms and two baths to give us both the ease to get ready each day on our own timetable. We were there to attend the Australian Open tennis, and you have two easy choices from this location, walking or taking the tram (trolley). Since my mom has issues with walking long distances, the tram was perfect to take into town, and then a free tram ride right to Rod Laver Arena. It couldn't be easier. But we arrived a couple of days ahead of our tennis tickets, and so we took thetime to take in a couple of exhibitions and enjoyed the great restaurants of Melbourne. But what was great about this location was that once David felt comfortable that we had an understanding of his house and location, he quietly left us alone for the rest of our time in Melbourne with contact information if we needed any further assistance. We were easily able to get some food from a small grocery nearby with a 7-eleven that is just down the hill from his place. To take the public transportation, you will need to get a card that you can easily purchase at the 7-eleven and the trolley stops right at your corner when leaving or arriving back. If you are looking for a place that is not your traditional hotel setting but willing to spread your sights to a house setting, I would highly recommend this location. It was everything that was advertised and more. Even my mom commented a couple of days into our stay how much she enjoyed staying there. I have never stayed at a house before, and this was a great first experience and so happy that I picked this house with David as my host. If you're looking for someplace in Melbourne with easy access to public transportation, I highly recommend this location. I think you'll be very glad that you did.
Great spot to stay in Melbourne, nice neighborhood and walk to city. Apartment spacious, clean and comfortable with all the little extras such as laundry soap, breakfast food provided. David is available and flexible with check out. We stayed during a record heat wave but the apartment remained comfortable with the help of fans.
David's apartment is fantastic - very clean and comfortable, with every modern convenience. We staid for two weeks in the beginning of summer and had some very hot and some quite cold days but the temperature inside was always perfect. The beds were very comfortable. David was very attentive and quick to respond. He also left some foods/snacks for us - much appreciated when arriving 4 am after 35 hours travel! The only slight downsides were the unexpectedly noisy traffic, and that the internet data allowance quickly ran out, and was quite costly to top up. Probably not a problem for most, but we had some work to do. All in all a very good and recommendable stay.
Great place, great host, great location. From the moment I contacted David, I could just tell this was a host willing to do anything to make our stay easy, enjoyable and comfortable. David was easy to communicate with, and nothing sounded like it would be a problem. Even though we didnt need to contact David during our stay, he made it very clear that he was available if there was going to be any issues that needed attention.
The apartment was excellent and ideal for our needs. Plenty of space, everything we needed was provided- even a few extra things were there 'just incase' which was a comforting and brilliant touch.
Being slightly unfamiliar with the area, it was nice to be able to pick up the booklet provided to find out any information we needed to know about the local area and Melbourne in general. Maps were also provided, and a brief discription of how to get to the nearest good coffee shop which won me over!
David's attention to detail made our stay very comfortable and inviting. We would reccommend David's apartment to anyone.
This was our second stay in this great apartment and it was as excellent as the first - it even impressed the mother-in-law!
Still highly recommended.
A conveniently located flat with even the smallest details considered to make for a really comfortable, home-away-from-home stay. Straight forward check-in and check-out with the same sort of care and attention given to all arrangements.
Nice place comfortable, clean as well as quiet and very handy area to stay, which contributed to our enjoyable holiday. Love Melbourne and will definitely come back and stay at the same place again.
