Eliisa made us feel extremely welcome; her apartment is comfortable and has everything you could possibly need for a great stay in Melbourne.
We stayed in Eliisa's apartment for 5 months and it felt like 'home'. Both of us worked in the City so it was convenient for work and everything that the 'most liveable city' in the world has to offer.
We would recommend anyone to stay at Eliisa's apartment. We are both well into our 50's and yes, it can occasionally be a bit noisy with weekend revellers and the refuse trucks empty bins at stupid o'clock but it's a city apartment and the upside, for us, nicely balanced this out. If you are looking for tranquility, don't stay in the city.
Eliisa's lovely parents were also very helpful; nothing was ever too much trouble.
We are now back in the UK and are already missing Melbourne. I expect the cheeky sparrows are missing us; not exactly us but more their daily feed on the balcony
Wow, we had a wonderful time. The apartment is just as described and photographed but the location is better. You are right in the best part of the city for cafes, restaurants and entertainment. the trams are close and if you are in a hurry the soup from the cafe at ground level to take back is just great. Thank you, we will be back.
I would highly recommend this lovely apartment..it was a perfect location so close to everything! What yummy restaurants 2mins walk! The apartment was clean and tidy and had everything we needed!
Elissa was quick to respond with any details we needed!
Would definitely stay again!
We are a senior couple who come to Melbourne every summer for two months in January and February. The Apartment was perfect for us.
There are lots of positives:
Great location, in walking distance of Federation Sq. and Flinders St. Station, Victoria Market, The Arts Centre, Chinatown, and lots of great restaurants. Trams and trains are very close.
Great wifi, we ran a lap top and two iPads flawlessly.
Comfortable bed, lots of closet space,
A good kitchen. We used the island counter for our meals, but there is a separate table and chairs, if needed.
Since it was summer, we particularly appreciated the great shower, and the Juliette balcony which catches the morning sun.
There was a record heat wave for 5 days in Melbourne, and the air conditioner did a great job.
The office area just off the sitting room, allowed us to set up our laptop and my files in a separate area.
Arrival and departure was very easy.
Be aware, that the location is on a city street with two high rise offices across the street. The sound from the street seems to get echoed. So loud revelers particularly on weekends, and rubbish trucks early in the morning can be intrusive. It was easy for us to mitigate this, as the bedroom has double glazing and with the air con on during the summer, we muted most of the disturbance. Plus we are city people, used to city sounds.
And the high rise buildings play havoc with TV reception.
Neither of these will stop us from returning.
I stayed in this apartment for the month of August. It's very nice - quite, clean, large, well decorated. I thought it was nicer than the pictures suggested. Everything you might need (towels, an iron, etc) is in the apartment. The location is extremely central, and there are some decent cafes and restaurants within a couple of blocks. There was a problem with the wifi in the last week I was in the apartment and it was never resolved, but Eliisa did try hard to help. She's easy to communicate with generally.
Eliisa's appartment is very cosy, well maintained and equipped and centrally located.
Can be a bit noisy sometimes at night during weekends with a couple of bars and restaurants further below in the street.
Good place to stay, centre location, with all the stuff in the house.
Eliisa has a lovely flat in a fanastically central part of a wonderful city and was a great host. I spent about four weeks here in January 2013 when I had just moved to Melbourne and it was a fantastic base. The place is just as it looks and the living room is nice and roomy. Eliisa is based overseas but her parents were around to give me the keys, and were extrememly kind and helpful. Given the central location, you may be wondering about whether the area is noisy. There can be some noise on weekend evenings, but overall it's not a noisy part of town and it's not close to any night spots or that kind of thing.
