What else can I add to the already glowing reviews of this place?! A great stay at The Stables, comfortable, clean, convenient. Ione and family, especially the two very friendly dogs Barry and Cilla, are all lovely, they looked after us brilliantly during our stay.
We stayed at The Stables during our 6 day visit to Melbourne in February to see friends & a world cup cricket match.
Shortly after booking, Ione contacted us to make sure we were aware the property did not have cooking facilities, given we were staying more than a couple of days. So, if you are wanting to self-cater, this would not be the property to book.
We were arriving late at night which was no issue, Ione made sure the we were able to access the property without disturbing them.
The property is in Richmond - an excellent location to base yourself in Melbourne. There are great cafes, restaurants, bars a short walk from the property. It is walking distance to the MCG & other stadiums in this area. There is excellent public transport networks & it is an easy walk into Melbourne central.
The property is a spacious room with a very comfortable bed. Bathroom facilities are a decent size, with a fridge & coffee/tea making facilities available. There is plenty of information provided for the local area, Melbourne & wider Victoria. A car parking permit is provided if needed and myki cards for Melbourne public transport. You will share the backyard with the family & a couple of friendly dogs.
Ione was helpful answering questions & kindly provided us with some fresh fruit one afternoon. We would certainly recommend this property & would stay again if we are ever in Melbourne.
We couldn't have asked for a better Airbnb experience in Melbourne! Ione's Stables are impeccably decorated, private and cozy and within a short walking distance of public transport around the city. She even provided fruit, coffee and tea during our stay at we much enjoyed and appreciated! Thanks so much!
Ione was a great communicator prior to our arrival and during our stay. She was welcoming and friendly. The Stables are in an excellent location close to the Rod Laver Arena, MCG and Bridge Rd. The accommodation is spotlessly clean, like a well equipped hotel room. The brick floor and walls are stunning. The area is safe to walk around and we accessed a parking permit from Ione to enable us to park for our entire stay. We left the car and walked everywhere. My husband enjoyed flying paper planes with Ione's two sons and having the paper delivered each morning. We would recommend a stay at the Stables to friends and family.
The Stables is averaging five stars after 99 reviews.
The first review in March 2013 noted that The Stables were 'clean and cosy' with a comfortable bed and the location was good for eating out and public transport. The reviewer finished by saying 'Ione and her family were very friendly and helpful.'
None of those things have changed, I have stayed here before and hope to again.
The Stables is still averaging five stars after 100 reviews.
The Stables was a great place to stay! Lovely comfy room and amenities. Nice and quiet. The location was excellent for walking to the tennis and also easy walking distance to train and tram. Loved that there was Myki cards supplied to use, as this made getting around so much easier.
Will definitely recommend to friends. Hope to return!
The Stables is ideally located for an easy walk to both the Australian Open venue and the great restaurants in Richmond. It's also easy to hop on the tram to the CBD. The room is cozy with all of the desired amenities. Mark and Ione made us feel welcome and were helpful with directions and tips. We really enjoyed our stay.
We had a great, albeit short stay at the stables. Being able to walk into town was brilliant. The space is interesting and spotless . Ione made us welcome and her dogs are lovely!
The Stables was perfect in every way!
My husband and I stayed for the second time at The Stables. We find the accommodation very comfortable and the location convenient. Thanks again Ione.
Although I never met Ione, it was lovely to have her family stay and everything was left lovely and clean and well presented.
Thanks for the tip about Spray and Wipe Ione.
We recommend Ione and family and ideal guests so don't hesitate to accept their booking.
