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.
x1 small request: please water apartment's plant(s) in sink, every 2 days or so. We don't like fake plants so we have real plants but obviously they need to drink when we're not there to water them myself! Thanks in co-operation here!
Apart from that we don't mind what you do during your stay as long as you respect the apartment and it's contents.
it's a very good apartment. Landlord is a nice person, help us to solve the problem in time.
The appartment was very convenient for moving around Melbourne and Alex was very easy to deal with.
We had a nice stay in spite of they were bulding next to us and was a bit noisy.
We encountered sopping wet patches on the carpet outside the bathroom door. These did not dry during our3 night stay and began to smell bad. The shower needed the grout cleaned and the extractor fan did not work and also needed cleaning. Construction work a few inches from the end of the deck rail left concrete splashes all over everything on the deck rendering it unusable.
Very disappointing considering we had paid a premium due to the Melbourne Open being on at the time we were visiting.
I have advised Alex of all this and he says he has contacted the owners but still no response as I write this from Hobart 6 days later.
Alex was an extremely nice and welcoming host. He was on-call if needed, in regards to our stay in Melbourne over the weekend. We did not meet up to check-in, however, the process was very easy and straight forward. The apartment was tidy and ready for use when we arrived, and overall the apartment was exactly like the pictures. The only fault was the shower clogging up after a couple of uses of the shower, though, Alex is aware of this problem and it did not ruin our weekend away. Location was great; right next to Chapel St and short walk to South Yarra Station and a tram for getting around. Thank you for a great stay. Would definitely stay here again!
Excellent apartment and great location. We loved Melbourne and Alex looked after really well before and during our stay. Thanks so much.
Alex was a great host. He is flexible with check in and check out time. He was there upon check in to let me into the carpark and show me the apartment. There was a bit of a hassle with the car parking, the people that had previously stayed in the room had car troubles so their car was still in the apartment's allocated car parking space. Despite this Alex was there to assist and navigate me through the car parking, I had to park in one of his other apartment's car parking spots and the key card to my apartment did not open the stairwell door from that car park's level. Confusing but once Alex navigating me through how to get to the apartment from the carpark there were no issues.
The apartment itself was fine and accurate to the description. The weather that weekend was fantastic and I had asked Alex previous about access to the public rooftop area, he offered to give us access to his other apartment's private rooftop as he had had a cancellation which was thoughtful, but we didn't end up using the space anyway.
The only thing that I will comment on is the fact that the lights above the kitchen space and the pendent were not working so once it got dark it was a bit like camping. Because I didn't stay in the apartment for the majority of the day it wasn't too much of an issue and my companions and I had a fantastic time regardless! Thanks
Alex is a superb host and owner of a a range of beautiful properties. He is very accessible and will ensure your stay is comfortable, enjoyable and easy.
This property is in a new designer apartment just off Toorak Rd, close to Chapel Street. If you want to immerse yourself in the groovy South Yarra lifestyle, this is a great place to start.
Thanks Alex for making me feel at home.
