  • Grateful for the kind accommodation for a late check out as our flight was scheduled at 7pm; gives us ample time to get souvenirs from Victoria market then pack and do our laundry before airport shuttle pick up at Quest @Southbank. Also enjoyed the proximity to Swanston St where our friend is studying Botany in Melbourne uni:)

  • I had a wonderful stay with Emma and Dave! Their apartment is spotless and super comfortable. They gave me breakfast and lent me top-up travel cards. I also used the pool and spa, which is a brilliant bonus. I was out and about a lot, so unfortunately didn't spend much time with Emma and Dave, but when I did chat to them they were really friendly and helpful - a lovely couple.
    The apartment is in a great location - really peaceful at night, but only a couple minutes until you're on the South Bank. Walking distance to loads of attractions. Would highly recommend!!

  • With not being home when I arrived in Melbourne, Dave and Emma had forwarded instructions of how to get in to their apartment. I entered this home and found it to be modern, clean and very welcoming. It is only 10 minutes from the city centre, 30 minutes from the main railway station, (and that was with dragging a suitcase), and 20 minutes from Albert Park which was the reason for my stay. On arriving home they both gave suggestions as to how I could spend my time there.
    As I was out early and all day I saw little of them but when I did, the atmosphere was very relaxed and I found the whole experience very comfortable. I was encouraged to make use of the food and television on offer which I did. As this couple are busy working full time it is ideal for travellers who like to come and go at all times of the day without feeling they have to stick to a time schedule.
    Overall it was a well located modern apartment, with very relaxed friendly hosts.

  • Emma and Dave were very friendly and ensured we enjoyed our stay in Melbourne. The apartment was very comfortable and very convenient for the Southbank and the City centre.

  • I stayed at Emma´s and Dave´s place for 2 weeks and it was lovely. The apartment is very nice, tidy, very central and well located with everything what you need. I worked the 2 weeks in Melbourne as Emma and Dave did too but there was no problem with accessing the bathroom in the morning etc. The couple is really friendly and always up for a little chat. I would definitely recommend this place and would go there again next time. Breakfast is available with toast jam, nutella and coffee. There were a few days no toast available, but was no problem for me as breakfast is usually not included in airbnb places anyway. It´s already very kind of them to offer it.

  • Recommended!!

    Great place and very good location!
    We have checked in when both Emma and Dave were working but they gave us very detailed instructions and left everything really well organised making it a very smooth check in after a really long flight.

    We spent 4 nights in a slightly busy period (just before Christmas) hence we didn't get to meet Dave and only briefly met Emma who is very friendly and made us feel very welcomed at all times.

    Definitely recommend staying here!

  • Great location close to Flinders St and Federation Square. Good room and nice hosts. Can recommend. Thanks

  • This is a great spot to stay! Handy to Flinder Street Station (just a 1km walk along safe pathways - as long as steps aren't an issue for you).
    Dave & Emma are super friendly and really helpful with everyone respecting each others privacy.
    Be prepared to share their bathroom and toilet as the apartment is very small. This was no problem at all but it is cosy!
    We were provided with a good daily breakfast of fruit, cereal, toast and jams etc plus tea & coffee.
    The apartment is very secure and quiet with a great outlook over lawns, pool & small gymnasium.
    Absolutely recommend this place! Dave and Emma are really go ahead young people with a good business head. They know the bnb scene really well and have carefully thought out every aspect of it including a really handy secure website to give you more information after your booking.

  • Emma and Dave were great! Even though they were out of town for the weekend, they left detailed instructions for us so it was easy to find the apartment and explore the surrounding neighborhood. The apartment was in a central location and it was a short walk to all the areas we wanted to explore in Melbourne. Definitely recommend staying here!
