Martin's place is really cool, lots of sunlight throughout the day, nice views from the top floor, plenty of music to listen to/ books to read, internet, full kitchen, washing machine etc. The location is great, 10 min walk to Newmarket Station (where Woolies is) then 9 mins on the train to Southern Cross Station or take Tram 59 just up the street to Flinders Street Station in around about the same time, which for your info also passes the Queen Victoria Markets . The area itself is beautiful, all tree-lined streets, post office about a 5 minute walk, banks, police station very nearby (for those thinking about safety) and lots of delicious/ cheap eats on Pin Oak Crescent and Racecourse Road ie Chef Lagenda and Laksa King, costs about $9 for a meal that would be enough cover lunch and have leftovers for dinner. Martin too was very helpful, honestly couldnt ask for a kinder host and gave us these myki cards with money on them so we could travel for free on our first day into town. All in all couldnt fault Martin's apartment and as such throughly enjoyed our stay in Melbourne.
A nice, big, apartment with some cool vintage furniture to boot. Having a myki and bread/milk provided was great. Flemington, and the apartment's location within Flemington is excellent. Just a few minutes walk up to get the tram into town, and a few minutes walk in the other direction to get to some great cafes and restaurants.
We spent four days during one of Melbourne's hottest summers at Martin's place and it was superb. He is a super friendly and helpful host, giving us MyKis and a map with notable places to visit pointed out to us. Bread, milk and other foodstuffs were also provided. The place is close to two tram lines and a train line, is very well-kept and in a beautiful neighborhood. It may not have all the qualities of a five-star hotel - don't go in expecting a spa en-suite or flat-screen TV - but has its own friendly charm nonetheless. Last but not least, Martin has some exquisite taste in books, movies and music!
This was our first time using Airbnb and were surprised at how cheap, friendly, and easy it turned out to be. Thank you so much for letting us stay!
A lovely unit on the top floor of a small complex in a tree lined street. It has all the comforts of home such as books, dvds and board games to keep you entertained. Martin provides some nice touches such as bread, milk and other staples and also myki cards which are a great help to new visitors. Martin will also help with any requests you may have such as parking passes or information about local restaurants etc. So much better than a hotel or high rise!!
Great location just outside the CBD, only 2 mins walk to the tram stop so easy as to get into town. Martin was very helpful on our arrival seeing as our flight had been delayed and met us late at night in his own time which was great.
Martin also left us tram cards with credit for a days travel into town which was very nice of him.
Both my wife and I really enjoyed our visit and would definitely recommend Martins apartment and would also book with him again should we visit Melbourne again
Excellent location, Tram is close bye with easy access to Melbourne Central as well as Victoria Market,and very close to restaurants/shoppes in Flemington area; great area to either jog or power walk; apartment is very clean, lots of space and well equipped; lovely balcony with view of city buildings; quiet and secure. Wonderful host as Martin had left Myki Card (for Tram); parking pass (if needed) two bottles of beer, milk, fruit, bread. ( to get you started for staples)..and brochures on sightseeing etc... very thoughtful host. and he has a great reading and music selection.............. would definitely recommend staying at Martin's.
We spent a very relaxing week at Martin's flat. It is in a nice neighbourhood, spacious, clean, has a balcony with sunlight all morning and is 2 mins from the tram into central Melbourne (which takes about 20 mins and passes the zoo and Victoria market and drops you right in the heart of Melbourne). It's also on the route into Melbourne from the airport.
If you want hotel style living with flat screen TV and wifi, it's not for you, but if you want to chill out in a lovely place, go for it. We got a 30 dollar sim card which gave us 3G access.
I can confirm the positive reviews of previous guests as true. The flat is spacious and really well furnished and stocked - you won't need to buy most of your everyday staples because Martin kindly provides what you need. Martin is extremely generous and very helpful. For what you get, and in comparision to most places listed on airbnb, it's very reasonably priced. The location is also favourable and the tram is just a short walk to the end of the street. Thanks Martin!
Martin's flat was perfect for us (2 ad + 2 kids under 5)! He met us with the key and cards to travel on public transport, his flat was clean and tidy (I loved the view from the shower :-)). Quiet flats and so near to public transport straight into the city or the fantastic Melbourne Zoo. I recommend!
Martin is a FANTASTIC fella. Came along the day we arrived and gave us very good directions and tips to enjoy Melbourne.
The apartment is clean, neat, very close to transport and in a very very quiet area. Some pretty good restaurants within walking distance.
Highly recommend everyone visiting Melbourne to rent Martin's apartment.
Never met Mark but his communication was good and very pleasant.
Mark left the property clean and tidy and would be welcome back any time.
Dream guests is probably the best way to describe Martin and Leonie, we would welcome them back anytime
A delight hosting Martin ! All good
Martin is very nice person, left the apartment clean, highly recommend to other hosts
Martin and his wife Leonie were the perfect guests.We would recommend them to any other Airbnb'ers.
My boyfriend Martin is off travelling and has a great flat to offer visitors. His home is clean, comfortable and easy to relax in. And it will be just like the photos.
He does quite like things to be in place, which means your trip to Flemington will be well organised and both of you can just enjoy your travels.
I've known Martin for 20 odd years and he is very reliable, as well as easy going and good natured.I'm sure he would be an excellent person to deal with as far as accomodation is concerned.
I have been friends with Martin for about 15 years and I'm good friends with people he has shared houses with in the past. Martin is mature, reliable, conscientious and clean and tidy. I hope he has fun on his travels and I'm sure you'll enjoy staying in his apartment.
