The Botanic Gardens and Shrine of Remembrance are at the top of the street, along with the famous Tan walking/jogging track.

Many thanks and if you want a home form home weekend in Melbourne you will find a great Host and home at Judy't airbnb
Enjoy your travel adventures Judy
I never realized how much Melbourne had to offer until I stayed in Judy's beautiful penthouse condo. There is something to do and see from every direction out her front entrance. The building she is in is very clean and secure, even late at night. The sunset from her balcony is postcard quality. I had not made any definitive plans for this part of my trip so. I took Judy's advice everyday. I covered a lot of ground by walking and the tram was always an option if I got tired. It was always nice to come home to Judy and share my daily adventures. She has a genuine interest in people and is so easy to talk to that we kept each other up later than we should have. I would truly recommend this host to anybody who is looking for a clean, comfortable place to experience Melbourne.
Judy's place is perfectly located in the heart of South Melbourne, with great transport links to the city. The apartment is clean and tidy with plenty of privacy, but Judy also gave me a warm welcome and made me feel at home. A great place to stay if you want the freedom to come and go as you please whilst also having your own space. Thanks Judy!
THANK YOU JUDY!!!! Wow what a amazing time we had with you!! This was our first ever bnb experience and it just felt like we were home at ours!!!! Relaxed, and lots of chats and laughs, and a great meal out at Honey!!! Thanks for the tv to watch the night games of tennis, you now have your channels back LOL. I would recommend anyone to stay here, it was just FANTASTIC!!!!!!!!! If we come back in 2015 to the aussie open we are booking our bed at yours!! Thank you again!!
An ideally located apartment in South Melbourne, close to public transport to the CBD and the Melbourne Parklands. Judy keeps a smart and comfortable apartment with great views. We were welcomed warmly and shared travel experiences while there with our generous host.
South Melbourne is a part of this great town that we had not visited before. We were very impressed by how easy it is to get to any destination either by foot or tram. There are a huge number of restaurants in the area. The Domain Interchange (2 Min walk from Judys' ) at the top of Park street allowed us to go anywhere on the tram network. This was our first "Trial" of the airbnb system and we were initially not sure of what was the correct way to act and interact with our host. Judy helped us settle in and was most helpful in reassuring us that we were not intruders in her home but her guests ( friends after a 4 nights !). This was down to her ability to know when to interact with us and when to politely excuse herself and retire to her on room. We will definitely be returning to Judys' in the future.
We 've got an awesome view from the flat which is the rooftop of a tall secured building. Judy is very nice & helpful and she left us the myki cards to travel the downtown easily. She recommended us to go visit the South Melbourne Market which turns out to be a great experience. I tasted a fresh juicy oysters and Reospot King prawns there! Highly recommend to those travelers looking for a convenient spot and a style house with lots of antique to admire.
This place maked you feel like home! We enjoyed our time. The rooms are clean and the bathroom was the best, much better than a hostel. Judy is a lovely lady and I liked our talks but if you want to be for your own, there is enought room. It's not far from the city, but you need to take a tram. Also the way to st kilda beach is not far, but it's to far to walk this every day!
All in all I can say, I would like to come back, if I'm going to melbourne again!
It was a pleasure to stay at her room in South Melbourne. She offered us myki cards, told us how to get to her apartment and helped us to find the right tram into the city.
She also told us what to do in Melbourne and some good restaurants.
The room was exactly like described, clean, comfy and big enough for two. My friend was also fascinated by the pool where he started a short workout every day.
All in all it was very nice and I will come again.
Judy was a great host. She surprised us with a bottle of wine for our anniversary, which we thought was very thoughtful and kind. the room was lovely and we had our own private bathroom. Breakfast was great and her location is very close to famous landmarks. We walked to many sites even though Judy gave us a maki card for the trams. We would stay here again as it's a great location and Judy was so great helping with ideas of where to go that we discovered a lot of Melbourne in a short time. Bed was super comfy too
