Close to Flagstaff station and CBD. Excellent service and excellent location.
Daria place was in an excellent location. She was there to greet us on arrival and provided us with plenty of information. The apartment was clean and secure, perfect for 3 people. Will definitely stay here again.
Daria was there to welcome my mum and I into her lovely apartment, and give us the run-down on her place and the surrounding area. She provided maps and Myki cards (although being in the Free Tram Zone, we didn't need them after all). The location was great - on the quieter side of town, but close enough to walk everywhere. It was also great to make use of Daria's kitchen - she provides everything you could possibly need. We had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to come back here again. Thank you Daria!
Daria is the perfect host - her flat is just as described, spotless, conveniently located and very comfortable. It is within walking distance of most anything you would want to see or do in Melbourne. She adds all of the extra touches that makes being away from home that much easier. I look forward to staying at her place again when I return to Melbourne.
Daria's apartment is gorgeous and comfortable, and was surprisingly warm during our mid-winter stay. It is centrally located, so close to the Markets and many other fabulous Melbourne sites. Daria herself could not have been a more helpful and friendly host. I highly recommend this host and home: I only wish we could've stayed longer than a week! Thank you, Daria.
We were greeted by Daria on arrival and she gave us a quick run through of things, and provided maps and 3 myki cards which was a nice touch. Great apartment with an eclectic mix of contemporary and modern furnishings. Daria has done an amazing job with the place - so much so we almost wanted to take up residence there at the end of the trip! Centrally located in Melbourne CBD, apartment has been well looked after and is clean and comfortable with good bathroom facilities and comfy beds. I'd recommend this place to anyone on their next visit to Melbourne.
Convenient location (5 mins walk to QVM, 10 mins to Melbourne station and 15 mins walk to shopping area) Room is very cosy and host actually waited for us at the entrance when we lost our (website hidden) area is equipped with everything we need! Basically it's a "home" for us. We can wash our clothes, cook our meals and there are even books to read. Host is kind enough to provide all the map and info for tourists as well. Instructions are clear, everything in a booklet. My friend and I enjoyed our stay there.
