I am originally from Tasmania, but I have lived in Melbourne for 20+ years. I love the inner-city life style and everything it has to offer.
I arrived to a very warm welcome in spite of the fact that I had arrived very early on a Sunday morning! The first thing I noticed walking into Kates immaculate home was the incredible view!! Something which I found myself racing home each night to watch the sun set. Totally breathtaking. The apartment is always so clean and tidy and yet so comfortable. Kate is really friendly and easy to get on with and let's you be right at home from the moment you arrive. The location is unreal, on my favourite street in melbourne, with woollies downstairs, the best frozen yoghurt shop next door, and so so many shops and restaurants you couldn't ask for better. I also used the pool morning and night and the steam room and sauna were a real treat! I didn't want to leave.. In fact, trying to find an apartment in the same building! A dream stay, only complaint was it went too fast!
Kate is an incredible host. She is welcoming, flexible, and wonderful company too. The place is kept immaculately clean.
The view from this place is one of the best views you could have in Melbourne. Will certainly recommend Kate's place in future for anybody needing accommodation in Melbourne.
Certainly the best choice in all Melbourne and the best hostess. The view is really wonderful and the area as well. Very closed to the trams and the train. We had an amazing stay and were very lucky for having meeting Kate. We would recommend this place for sure! We're really happy and the spa and the swimming-pool and fitness has been very useful. Thank you for all the help you gave us Kate.
Thanks Kate for the wonderful place.... Great views of the city skyline. Clean & tidy . Have our own balcony. Although we didn't have much time to chat as was busy traveling day & night, she made sure we were comfortable and let us use her apartment as our own. Nice location on chapel st with lots of shops ... Train station only 5 min walk away. Huge supermarket right below for your convenience.
Kate is a great host: She is friendly, considerate and has a wealth of knowledge about Melbourne. The view from the apartment is awesome. I would happily stay there again.
Kate's place is probably one of the best places to stay in Melbourne. The apartment has all you might need and kate was so nice and helpfull to us since day one. We stayed there for 5 weeks and felt like at home taking huge advantatge of all the facilities, specially the pool. Kate was always available to give us advice on what and where to go and even took us to some beautiful places. We will always remember the days we stayed at kate's apartment and its spectacular views, thanks kate for everything!
Kate's apartment is excellent, views to die for, super clean, very comfortable with all amenities you could want.
As I was working in Melbourne, I needed to work in the evening in the apartment. This was not a problem with access to WiFi and plenty of room to set up a desk.
Kate it was a pleasure meeting you,
From the moment we stepped off the plane, Kate was an amazing host.
We arrived late in the evening, however as soon as we got to the apartment, Kate welcomed us and made us feel instantly at ease.
She provided us with all the information we needed to settle in quickly and wanted us to enjoy her apartment as if it was our own.
The room is great, with lots of storage and a balcony overlooking the Yarra river and CBD. There is also access to the gym, sauna, jacuzzi and swimming pool, which we took full advantage of.
There is a tram stop just outside which takes you all the way down Chapel Street and up to Richmond. A 3 minute walk and you can get the number 8 tram which gets you into the CBD or Albert and Fauwkner parks. A 10 minute walk to the train station will get you into the city within around 6 minutes.
We found the location fab for our relocation and it gave us the opportunity to explore the surrounding suburbs by foot and public transport. We were easily able to do lots of the touristy things too with ease. e.g. Melbourne zoo, Albert Park, Yarra river trail, St Kilda Beach, etc.....
Kate gave us lots of advice and information about the areas and things to do, which made getting around a lot easier.
We had a great stay with Kate and can't thank her enough for letting us share her home for the month,
We stayed with Kate for two nights in Melbourne and the experience was lovely. Kate's home is extremely clean and the bed is very comfortable. The room has AMAZING view of Melbourne which makes the stay even more enjoyable. Kate is very accommodating and even gave us a ride to one of the suburbs.
I would definitely recommend Kate's place to anyone who is looking to visit Melbourne!!
Kate was a excellent host, her flat is incredible and the view is surreal.
I would highly recommend anyone wanting to be close to Chapel Street and a 5 minute walk to the train station to stay with her.
