The space

Resort style living in the city

Whether you’re in town to explore the city, experience the nightlife, catch one of Melbourne’s many sporting events, attend a business event, visit friends or just relax by the pool – this is the ideal place to base yourself.

Regardless of whether it’s for three nights or one month. A modern two bedroom apartment located in a resort style complex (complete with pool, spa, gym and tennis court) right next to the city in the heart of the Arts precinct; the Arts Centre, Melbourne Recital Centre, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, National Gallery of Victoria and the Malthouse Theatre are all within a very short walking distance. And the heart of the city and the heart of South Melbourne are both just a walk or short tram ride away.

Along with the central location and great atmosphere of the village-style complex, the apartment has many features:·

Quiet, secure location about 10 min walk to Flinders Station. Pauline was a lovely host. Would stay again.

A great place to stay. Close to so much that the CBD has to offer yet tucked away in a quiet spot. Clean well appointed apartment with 2 balconies in a complex with pool and tennis court! Pauline was very nice and easy to deal with. Would definitely stay again.

Pauline was fantastic, the place was really comfortable, and the complex was quiet and had great amenities.

Pauline's apartment was exactly as described. She gave clear instructions on how to get there and how to get in, and who to call if we had problems. The house was clean and very comfortable, having access to the pool, gym and spa was great. She also provided some basic but useful food supplies (bread/juice/milk etc), which saved us a trip out to get breakfast. The house was well furnished and beyond what we required - a huge 65" TV with home theatre system, DVD's if you were bored. But who stays home on holiday anyway :). Location wise, we absolutely loved it. As an ex-melburnian, this is the best location to be in terms of balance between access to the city and comfort/seclusion. Anything in the city will be noisier (we've been in high-rise apartments in the CBD before and it can get noisy till late especially on weekends) - and anything further will require more walking. Thank you for having us, Pauline! All the best.

Pauline User ProfilePauline is a superhost.

I love to travel, and have a daughter married living in Switzerland and another daughter in the tourism industry, so there is always an excuse to get away. Eating out, going to the movies, the spring racing carnival are other events I enjoy.
I aim to provide people with a comfortable retreat in a central location, so they can enjoy all Melbourne has to offer.
I look after a Resort in the City, A Resort in the City 2, A Resort in the City 3 and Melbourne River Retreat. I look forward to communicating with you about your forthcoming holiday, and helping to make it a great experience.
