There were things we liked about this place - the location is quite close to the city and though the bedrooms are small the living area is spacious. However, there were just so many issues that detracted from our stay here. One side of the double bed in one of the rooms was so bad that neither my husband or I could sleep on that side, so after both trying it out, I spent the week on the couch, which was firm, and definitely more comfortable than the bed. The shower head is barely functional and makes it difficult to have a shower. One of the attractions of the place for us was the two televisions (advertised on the airbnb booking site) so our kids could watch tv occasionally while we slept in, but be aware that the reception in North Melbourne is so bad that you can't get reliably get ABC3 tv, channel 7, channel 9, or just about anything else! (We would have appreciated the honesty if the airbnb site had advertised the poor reception.) Denis was initially polite and helpful, and when we pointed out there was no iron and we needed one, he reimbursed us when we bought one. However, when we told him about the bed, he appeared to find it difficult to believe that there was anything wrong with the bed. Before we left, we sent him a text to confirm the bed was problematic and suggest he check it out. His response was to call me and be incredibly rude and aggressive, reiterating that no-one else who stayed at the place had had trouble with the bed, and so on. I found him so rude I just hung up as I decided I had better things to do with my vacation time than listen to aggressive house owners! There are definitely better places to be had close to the city at just as good or better prices than this; I wouldn't be inclined to stay here again.

We had a great time at Dennis' warehouse. It is such an amazing space and was a great location, close enough to the city but quiet at the same time. It had everything we needed and was the perfect base for exploring Melbourne. Dennis' artwork really brings the place to life and when we went out to a bar on Saturday we saw more of his artwork around the entire bar! It was a great experience and I would highly recommend the warehouse to anyone.
We loved staying in this super cool apartment so close to the centre of Melbourne. The location is brilliant, right next to a pool and opposite a lovely park with BBQ. The space itself is bright, funky and super comfortable. Perfect for a stay in the city with friends.
