“Ineke was very helpful and answered all our texts prior to our stay. We met at the apartment and Ineke went through everything including recommending a few eating venues which were perfect for our short stay. Lovely swap and would recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be still close to CBD without being there. Tram transport out front was perfect to CBD, St Kilda, Docklands and still very quiet . We loved sitting out on the small balcony at night looking at the beautiful skyline of the city with a glass of wine. Weather was perfect too. Thanks Ineke”

About our home
Please look at the calendar before you make a request!! Minimum of 3 nights.
We use the apartment as our City retreat as we live permanently approximately 150 kms SE of Melbourne in the South Gippsland area. So it is fully equipped and has secure parking in an underground car park should you need it.
The City of Melbourne has been voted the "world's most liveable city" several times in the last ten years and is, without doubt, also the sporting, shopping and cultural centre of Australia. Whatever your passion, Melbourne is a great place to visit and no matter what time of the year you are able to go, you will always find plenty happening. From the spring horse racing carnival in November to the Australian Open Grand Slam Tennis in January and the Formula 1 Grand Prix as well as the international Food and Wine Festival in March, there is something for all tastes. Melbourne is also a great starting point from which to explore greater Melbourne and the sights of the state of Victoria, such as the Penguin Parade on Philip Island, the natural beauty of Wilson’s Promontory, the wonderful vistas of the Great Ocean Road and its surfing beaches, the old goldfields of Ballarat, the paddle steamers on the great Murray River, and the award winning wine regions of the Yarra Valley and Rutherglen.
Situated in the lively area of Fitzroy, just north of the Melbourne CBD, our top floor city apartment offers full reverse cycle air-conditioned accommodation comprising two bedrooms and an open plan kitchen and living area that opens to a balcony with views over the City. The main bedroom has a queen size bed and direct access to the bathroom as well as its own rear balcony; the second bedroom has two single beds. Both bedrooms have built in wardrobes and face into the complex’ internal courtyard.
Melbourne is famous worldwide for its tram system and the #11 tram stops right outside our apartment block, from where it is only a short 10 minute ride to the centre of the City. There are numerous restaurants, cafes and bars within easy walking distance and you can be guaranteed to be able to satisfy your culinary cravings regardless of the cuisine.

“Ineke is the best host! She welcommed us with a hug, cool wine & breakfast in the fridge and a little stuffed kangaroo for our daughter.. I mean, what more can you ask for? The apartment is located in the BEST area in Melbourne, we could have stayed in this area the whole week just shopping, drinking coffee, wining and dining.. The apartment is super nice, really well equipped and a view to die for. We are so happy we found this place and we had a GREAT week in Melbourne thanks to Ineke :) ”
“Great spot to stay a visit all of Melbourne, tram stop at the door plus two other tram lines just a block away, very very convenient. Loved it”
“A lovely apartment in a great location, right next to the tram stop which takes you into central Melbourne in minutes. It also looks over the foodie-heaven of Brunswick Street. There are wonderful views over the city skyline which is magic at night. There were lots of lovely touches and the apartment is beautifully set up, and very spacious. Ineke couldn't do enough to help us and provided everything we could possibly want.”
“Perfect location, we loved Fitzroy and its many great cafes and restaruants and it was an easy tram ride into the city. The apartment and Ineke's communication was great. She made a long an early trip from the country to meet us. ”
“We loved this apartment, it is light and spacious with excellent views over the Melbourne skyline. The photos really don't do it justice. It is surrounded by bars and restaurants and in a very trendy area, surprisingly it is also very quiet as it is on the top floor and well away from the noise of the street. It is close enough to the centre to walk in or alternatively the tram is right outside the front of the building. We spent a very enjoyable two weeks here, thanks Ineke. I hope we will see you next time we are in Melbourne.”
“Ineke was a wonderful hostess, she was waiting for us at checkin and gave us many great tips for making the most of our time in Melbourne. She included many extras like maps, transit cards and a bottle of wine. The location of the flat was splendid, we walked or used transit for everything. The flat was also well stocked for cooking and comfort. The coffee machine was a real treat. We would stay here again for sure. Thanks Ineke. ”
“Fabulous city pad right on vibrant Brunswick street. Clean and cosy apartment with all the comforts of home. Coffee machine gets a big thumbs up :) Secure complex with great views of street life and city lights. Walking distance to great pubs and restaurants. Thank you Ineke and Andrew for the warm welcome. ”
