What's South Yarra like? Who wouldn't love staying in the center of Melbourne's best shopping, best restaurants, best night life and entertainment.

From here you can walk to some of Melbourne's finest spots, the Yarra River, the Botanical Gardens, Fed Square,the city, Southbank and more. Dine on street, people watch, enjoy fashion, glamour and style all day, every day, all year round.

Shopping’s the name of the game in South Yarra, where Chapel Street reigns supreme. The fashion strip contains all manner of high-end designer boutiques, chain-stores, hipster hang-outs, cinemas and gift shops. There’s also a seemingly unlimited array of cafes and restaurants to help revive weary shoppers by day, and bars and clubs to keep the buzz going at night.

Naturally then, South Yarra attracts the young, hip and fashion conscious, at least on its main strip and the streets immediately surrounding. The residents are a mix of young professionals, families and empty nesters – all attracted to this salubrious suburb’s easy proximity to the city by road, rail and tramline.

The architecture is dotted with terraces and houses which reflect their Victorian heritage, and chic new apartment blocks like those which clutter Chapel Street beyond Toorak Road. But South Yarra generally wears its affluence on its sleeve, and a great majority of homes have been well maintained or renovated.

Fast Fact: South Yarra’s not all about material pleasures. The fabulously restful Fawkner Park and Royal Botanic Gardens, provide residents with exquisite locales to stretch their legs or take some time out with a lake-side picnic.

We also offer airport pick ups and returns for Interstate and International travelers, please feel free to enquire about this service.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We enjoyed our holiday in Melburne , Alex was very good with us always ready to help , neighborhood very good close to everything

    January 2014
  • Even though i did not meet Alex, He was responsive via SMS and he even gave me a call when i was in Saudi to assure me everything was in order.

    The apartment location was fantastic. It was walking distance from IGA supermarket, Chapel street for shopping and dining, and South Yarra metro station.

    The apartment itself was smaller that i expected (definitely not enough for 6 as advertised. I would say two adults and two small kids max). Also the furniture was different from the photos.

    Overall good value for the money.

    Response from Alex:

    Thanks for the positive review Khaled. Glad you had a great stay and enjoyed apartment. a few things to clarify - furniture was different style because we have two apartments in same which are the same (layout/features) but different style of furniture. I gave you the better apartment, which is higher up, so you had city views!!. Also in regards to size we believe it comfortable up to 4 guests. but we permit to have up to 6 if the guest requires. some people only use apartment for sleeping, so depends on your needs. We clearly advertise size and sqm of the place. Thanks again for staying with us! Always welcome

  • The process to book the place was good, Alex was helpful and kept the place for us for a little while so we could get the money sorted out. A week and a half before we were due to arrive, we received a message that the apartment we booked had some issues and that we would be able to go into a different apartment nearby. The apartment was sufficient but not what we expected so we were given an option to another apartment which wasn't an improvement so we decided to stay where we were. There were a couple of small things that we found somewhat frustrating though. Because we were a group of 5, Alex said that he would arrange for an additional bed (fold-out), instead we were provided with an air-bed. Alex would also arrange for a cot bed and sheets for our son, however, there were no sheets. Check-out was a little bit messy, we asked what the procedure would be but we didn't receive a reply until the evening before we left (3 days after we asked) and then received a request to confirm if we received the message when we had already left the apartment. Like I said, everything was very good when making the arrangements but there were some issues during our stay which was a bit frustrating.

  • Great appartment. Excellent position and terriffic views. It was well appointed and furnished.
    Alex was there to meet us and was friendly, courteous and helpful. Initially there were a few problems with another flat but Alex did everthing to make sure our requirements were met.

    December 2013
  • We actually did not get to stay in this apartment and Alex offered this one to us instead:
    While I was on the plane down to Melbourne from Sydney, Alex tried to call me to tell us that the apartment had water issues (the washing machine pipes had blown up), so when I got off the plane, contacted Alex straight away, who was accommodating and organised to meet us at the other apartment instead(located at 1 Queens Road, Melbourne, not in South Yarra area).
    Alex met us at the carpark entrance and we were taken up glass elevators to the penthouse apartment. The penthouse is actually just one storey, with a private rooftop BBQ area, accessed via the spiral staircase in the 2nd bedroom enclave. The double bed in the main bedroom was comfortable but the 3 single beds (one in the main bedroom, and 2 in the bedroom enclave) were a bit too soft.
    Alex had told us that if the other apartment was ready by the next day, we were welcome to move there, but alas, the water problem was not rectified and we did not move apartments (since we were only staying for two nights). We would have liked to have 2 bedrooms, as the 2nd bedroom in this apartment was more a "nook" with sliding screens. Also, the wifi was really weak even if we were near the router. Alex provided a new toaster and kettle.
    Overall, the view from the rooftop was great and it was in a convenient location near the CBD and South Yarra area.
