One Bedroom Apt Pool, Melbourne CBD

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Lonsdale St, Melbourne, VIC 3000, Australia

A spacious one bedroom apartment with a minimalist design (refurbishment not quite complete!). Located in the heart of the CBD nestled in between Lonsdale St and China Town. Our rooftop pool is great in summer and has gorgeous views across the city.

The Space

Gorgeous little apartment on Lonsdale Street, currently being renovated by myself and my boyfriend (who is an architect). We rent out to guests when we are travelling or working away. This apartment is our home - it is very convenient, with all the comforts that you need. It's 48 sqm, with a small balcony, and roof top pool (heated so you can even use it in winter!) and a master bedroom.

The location doesn't get better - with the city centre at your doorstep, including convenient trains, buses, trams, Chinatown and endless shopping. The Skybus from the airport will deliver you straight to the doorstep via it's free shuttle bus.

If you're in town as an explorer, you can walk to all the central hotspots from our place, including neighbouring areas such as super hip Fitzroy (Brunswick and Gertrude Streets), or Federation Square and Southbank on the Yarra River for a real 'tourist' experience. RMIT and Melbourne Universities are walking distance as well (or a tram if you're not into walking!).

There is a real queen size double bed, plus a sofa in the lounge room which is ok for sleeping if you are travelling with an extra person. Be aware there is only one bathroom to be shared which can only be accessed through the main bedroom.

WiFi included
Air Conditioning & Heating
Laundry (Washer $4 & Dryer $3) - Communal
Size: 48sqm (517sq. feet)
Rooftop pool

Please be aware that we are doing minor renovations at the moment. The apartment is still very comfortable & liveable, but it's not fully 'polished' yet and the oven isn't connected. The kitchen still has the basics (microwave, kettle, toaster, single gas hob, nespresso machine & fridge). So please send us any questions you have about it's current state. We also can't guarantee the level of festivity in the city. Being in the heart of the CBD you will hear some street noise and of course this is heightened on weekends and during the festive periods (the best time to be in the city!). It is not a problem for us, but we have had guests mention it before.

Let us know if there is something we can help with. We can help you with travel questions regarding Melbourne as we've lived here for 6 years and love it to bits. I can even give tips for Tasmania if you're heading down there during your travels as it's where I grew up.

Any questions? Please just message me :)

We hope you enjoy your stay!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Highly recommend this apartment as a private pad to stay in Melbourne city. Great central location. We were able to walk everywhere around the city even a 20min stroll to North Melbourne suburbs. Amazing city sunsets from the rooftop pool. One block away from top restaurants, cafés, bars, galleries, shopping and live music venues. Perfect hosts, excellent communication, seamless access. Will stay again.

  • We had an excellent time at Mirandas place! She made it very comfortable and easy. Its in an amazing location, easy to get to all Melbournes hotspots on foot or by tram! The place itself is very beautiful and cosy. Thanks Miranda!

  • Everything about our trip to Miranda's beautiful apartment was perfect. Miranda was a great and helpful host - very friendly and welcoming when we met her, and also quick to answer our messages when we had questions. Her apartment was perfectly situated in the heart of the city, in walking distance to everything we wanted to see and many shops/restaurants/bars. The apartment itself is really lovely and modern, plus very well equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. We would highly recommend it for anyone traveling to Melbourne!

  • The location of this place couldn't be better, Miranda was a pleasure to deal with (and very understanding about our late arrival time) and we really appreciated the small touches like the mykis and coffee. The bed was super comfy too!

  • We came for the first week of the Australian Open, with record-breaking heat- 4 days in a row over 41 degrees, and highs of 45. It was so wonderful to come back to the air-conditioned apartment and have a respite from the heat. It is a wonderful space, and the ongoing renovation was not a problem. The location is ideal, easy walking distance from many great restaurants and cafes, and we could also walk to Federation square to catch the free tram to the Australian Open. Miranda was very nice and helpful.

Hello! I am Miranda, and live with my partner Chris. We live in the heart of Melbourne City in our own apartment which we spend a lot of time renovating. We live with our gorgeous little puppy Charlie - she's a black 'Cavoodle'. We love living in Melbourne, especially enjoying its great parks and cafes. Chris is an architect/designer and I am a model, as well as a student studying to be a primary school teacher. We've been together 7 years, and in that time have travelled to a lot of places throughout Asia and Europe. When we travel it's always relaxed. We love discovering new things - not necessarily the typical tourist attractions. We look forward to exploring the Americas and more of Europe when life permits :) We look forward to meeting you!
