About This Listing
Beautiful apartment in an 1880's converted historic warehouse, right in the heart of one of Melbourne's great neighbourhoods, located just off Smith Street, Collingwood.
Spacious, light-filled and with a rough, industrial charm, the apartment is open-plan. There is a large kitchen / dining space and an equally sizable living room space with a mezzanine level. This is where you will sleep! The double bed (on the mezzanine) is made up with fresh linen and there's also hanging space for your clothes.
The space has huge north and east facing windows, 4m high ceilings and timber floorboards. The bathroom is new and compact with a walk in shower, great fixtures and fittings and towels provided. An old free-standing claw-foot bath tub in the kitchen is perfect for a relaxing soak after a day of exploring!
There is also a security entrance with lift access, although it's only a short flight of stairs up to level two.
Our place is ideal for a couple or those traveling solo and spending some time in Collingwood is a must!
The Apartment comes equipped with WiFi, TV/DVD, ipod/iphone player, washer, iron & ironing board and a fully-equipped kitchen. As mentioned we leave fresh linen and towels for your stay. Once you're all booked in, make sure to check out our house manual on our air bnb profile to get the wifi code and general info on using the apartment.
Interaction with Guests
You will have to whole place to yourself! We generally try to keep our interaction to a minimum so you can enjoy your stay in peace. However, we do love meeting our guests on arrival and are always on call for any advice/help that you might need. We'll also email you a more comprehensive guide of our favourite things to do in the area!
The apartment is located just a few minutes walk to Smith Street, Gertrude Street and Brunswick Street - the best coffee, food and wine is at your doorstep. Check out De Clieu, Proud Mary, Mina·no·ie, Rockwell & Sons, Huxtable (and Huxtaburger!), The Grace Darling Hotel, and Gorski and Jones. Not to mention great galleries and vintage furniture shops - Gertrude Contemporary Gallery, Dianne Tanzer, Smith Street Bizarre, Angelucci, the list goes on!
Fitzroy and the City are a short stroll away, but if you don't feel like the 20 minute walk into town, you could hire a bike - Our friend has a vintage bike hire company called The Humble Vintage. The number 86 tram (from Smith Street) also heads into town.
We love our place and our belongings so we would ask that you would be respectful of our home and and love it as much as we do! We would love for you to leave it in the same condition you found it.
There is no smoking in our apartment.
Please don't entertain or bring anyone else home outside of who the booking was made for. We want to stay friends with our lovely neighbours!
Please do not publish photographs of our space that serve commercial purposes - if you wish to do so please ask us first.
Lastly more than a request than a rule - but we would very much appreciate it if you could water our family of plants throughout your stay!
So bright! Pete & Alana's was full of sunshine even in the Melbourne winter. The plants and decor made me feel at home even though the loft was much more comfortable and convenient than my usual life. Pete and Alana were helpful and kind. And the shower and bath were the best I have had in years! Thank you!!
Great location with easy access to lots of great shopping and great restaurants.
Pete and Alana's delightful apartment was all it promised to be. Prompt response and easy communication made the organisation of our stay very easy. The apartment has the perfect location for access to Melbourne's eclectic shopping and great restaurants. Definitely loved everything about this apartment and have no hesitation in recommending it for a 'city-scape'.
Peter and Alana's place is lovely, and we thoroughly enjoyed staying here recently for a month. The location is brilliant; a stone's throw from the best coffee (Proud Mary) and best Gelato (Messina) in Melbourne, and Smith St is full of excellent bars and restaurants. The apartment itself is exactly as it looks in the pictures. It's clean, comfortable and stylish - a perfect combination. Pete was consistently friendly, helpful and communicative - I highly recommend staying here!
I really had a great experience here. The place is exactly as described, if not better.
Perfectly located, so close to Smith Street, but far enough away for a quiet night.
Pete and Alana were a pleasure to deal with and super easy to communicate with.
I absolutely cannot fault this listing or the great guys who provide it.
The place was lovely. Exactly as described and in a fantastic location!
Peter was lovely to deal with, very clear and helpful.
Pete and Alana were great hosts. Pete met us at their place to hand over the keys and make sure we had everything we needed. Their place is beautiful and in a great location!! Lots of cool bars and amazing places to eat. Pete and Alana gave us lots of recommendations as well which was really nice of them and I think we ended up trying most of the places!
They were also easy to communicate with before and during our stay.
The place was everything that we expect from the pics and listing description so we were very happy with our stay and would definitely choose their place if we go back to Melbourne!
