David is an excellent host - very welcoming, friendly and helpful. He was quick to answer questions and because I feel the cold badly he very kindly ensured that the apartment was well equipped with excellent heating and electric blankets to combat the cooler weather when we stayed for 5 nights.
He was very flexible with our arrival and departure times which was great and made it so much easier not to be rushed when we checked out. David also met us at the apartment and was very helpful with local restaurant/eatery suggestions!
The apartment is exactly as described - probably better! Large, comfortable and extremely clean. It's located in an excellent central location close to the hub of Toorak Road, Chapel street and the city and it's so easy to get around with trams and trains all within walking distance. It's one of the best Airbnb's that we've stayed in and we really appreciated the range of things available to guests - eg., food, kitchen appliances, myki cards, maps, menus, etc. Plus the shower has fantastic pressure!
David's thoughtfulness and attention to detail enhanced our stay and we highly recommend this apartment. We'll definitely stay there again!
The place is spacious and clean. I rented David's place for my family (4 people) for 4 nights and they really feel comfortable there. The place is conveniently located to trams and shopping and dining areas. David is also a brilliant host. He provides all you need to stay comfortably in his place including orange juices, milk, cereal, some snacks, kitchen appliances, and etc. He also adds few nice touch for tourists visiting Melbourne including booklets of places you can visits and tram cards.
We had an excellent stay David's South Yarra apartment. We checked in early and David was there to recieve us when we arrived. He gave an excellent briefing on the apartment, how to get around and things to do in Melbourne.
The apartment is spacious and done up beautifully. The kitchen is stocked very well with all that one needs for a temporary stay. David had even arranged for travel cards for four of us.
The apartment is well located near the Yarra river. CBD is a 30-40 minute walk along the river, or one can take the tram from a nearby location.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this place.
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.
