The Elwood Apartment
Private sunny room in second floor Art Deco apartment with only five other apartments in our block. There's a lovely garden outside with established trees and a big, fluffy cat lounging around on the grass watching proceedings.
Fully equipped (with character) kitchen, polished wooden floors and original bathroom. It's a spacious. light filled and relaxed apartment.
The Local Area
The apartment's a few blocks from the beach and conveniently located 6 minutes walk from Ripponlea train station and trams. Local stores include organic, supermarket, cafes, laundromat and bars. Also within walking distance of popular St Kilda and Acland street restaurant strip.
If you like open space, there is also Fl Dawkins and Clarke Reserves nearby--both of which are about a 5 minute walk away.
The Apartment is only a 6 minute walk to Ripponlea train station. From there, it is only a 15 minute train ride to Flinders St Station in the heart of the CBD, where you can find cafes, shops, and street art in the hidden laneways.
There is also free parking on the street.
The house is clean and quiet. My host Belinda was very accommodating and helpful. She even lent me her extra bike to go around Melbourne....
Balinda is a very nice host,she is atentive and really kind, her house is in a very fun apartment building where we met a couple that became our friends, we had a good and calm time with her. :)
Belinda's home is every bit as comfortable and stylish as the photos suggest. The location is perfect for access to Elwood, St Kilda and Melbourne CBD with the beach only a short ten minute stroll. A regular tram and rail service is easily accessed a few blocks away and the Tennyson shops, cafés and laundromat are very convenient. I plan to stay with Belinda the next time I'm in town.
Thanks for being a great host!
Belinda's place is fantastic, a beautiful renovated art deco unit in a terrific location. Made me wish I was living in Melbourne. Belinda is a great host and very accommodating. I had a lovely brunch with her and her friends. This was by far one of my favourite places I've stayed through airbnb, I hope to stay with Belinda again later in the year.
Wir haben uns wie zu Hause gefühlt!
Belinda ist eine tolle Gastgeberin, das Appartement ist sehr stillvoll eingerichtet und gut gelegen.
Belinda was a lovely host and extremely helpful. Her apartment is very light and spacious and within walking distance to st kilda beach and the town centre. Would highly recommend staying here.
Had a pleasant stay at Belinda's place. Took me and my partner about 5-8 minutes to reach her place from Ripponlea train station, pretty straightforward. Beautiful interior and very clean. Toilet is a little old but it was alright. Belinda is such a nice and warm person. Always telling us to make ourselves feel at home and comfortable. Heater in the living room also helped us during the freezing weather.
thank you again for having us!
Belinda's apartment was a nice place to stay in. She is a friendly hostess (for example recommended a superb exhibition and good cafes to me), enjoyed my stay here.
Nicely decorated place, hostess was nice and friendly. Really enjoyed our stay here!
Had a great time at Belinda's place. Everything was super clean and nice and it was great to stay in such a cared for place! It's a train ride out of town but we managed to hang out in local places like St Kilda and Elwood which is highly recommended as a chilled out, pretty area.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
