We had a wonderful stay at Position Perfect! Danielle and Ruth were excellent hosts - they responded promptly to all communication and were very willing to accommodate our toddler, providing toys, cot, highchair and even allowing us to organise our check-in time around her day nap! The apartment was clean, tidy and thoughtfully appointed with everything we needed. The location is excellent, close to lots of great cafes and very easy to get into the city on the tram.
Great experience from the booking to checkout. Ruth replied within the hour to any of our questions and was always super polite. The apartment was well looked after, clean, much larger than we anticipated and also featured great facilities such as the washer and dryer.
Nice apartment in a great location for exploring trendy Brunswick with it's many cafés and also great transport links to the city. Had a great time during our stay there.
Host was very accommodating. Apartment was extremely clean & modern. Very disappointed with size for the cost. Also sofa bed for extremely uncomfortable. As we had all travelled a long distance even my guests that meet us their expected a comfortable bed not a fold out sofa. Really liked that it was central to most things. Loved the cafe at end of street next to the tram stop. Highly recommend.
Thanks Kerrie! Great to hear you would highly recommend us. Our one bedroom apartments are actually quite large for Melbourne. I feel that a two bedroom apartment in this complex would have been better suited to your needs. Our description does state that the apartment has a King bed and a double fold out sofa. I guess we rely on our guests to read all the information prior to booking. We will look into the comfort of it however, as sometimes they do wear out! Thanks again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was easy to access the property at our own convenience, the apartment was beautifully presented including a welcome bottle of wine! There was plenty of space and it was very quiet and peaceful. Very happy with our stay - it was a perfect location for us as our daughter lives a couple of streets away so just a pleasant walk and of course so close to Lygon Street with heaps of food choices. Would happily recommend the apartment to our family and friends. Kate
I had a dilemma as we had no space at home to accommodate my cousins coming from Italy so my immediate thought was to look on line for rental accommodation and preferably self contained. I came across airbnb and could not believe my eyes there was accommodation available within walking distance from my home which meant my guests could walk to and from my place without having to rely on transport! From the first point of contact to the last I felt I had chosen the right accommodation as both hosts were amazing to deal with and their response time was sublime. They are very professional and will try and accommodate you as best as possible. The apartment was spotless and my guests were very grateful that everything was available to them including ironing facilities and the washing machine!!! :)
We enjoyed our stay at Danielle and Ruth's apartment. It was very much like a hotel, very clean, and all necessities supplied. Around the corner there were plenty of cafes and eateries. Communication with our hosts was also fantastic. Thanks for having us.
