AMAZING. We stayed with with our friends, there mum and 3 kids under the age of three. The house/space is so much fun, and has so much character. If you want a truely local experience, this is the place for you! The museum is around the Cnr. Brunswick, Smith and Lygon street are on your doorstep. Down the lane way and around the corner is a warm, welcoming traditional pub with great service, a huge outdoor beer garden and hearty meals. Simone's place is perfect for anyone looking to visit Melbourne with friends and family :)
Simone's place was the perfect pad for our weekend in Melbourne. It had lots of quirky books and interesting artefacts, along with a kitchen that had everything you needed. Our family of five were in Melbourne to celebrate our son's 18th birthday. Simone recommended some excellent places to eat that we loved and most importantly was able to accomodate us when our flight was cancelled and we had to stay another night. The location in Fitzroy had great shops and restaurants nearby - my favs being the Vegie Bar & Fitz cafe. We had only ever stayed in the CBD and this was much better. I would definitely recommend Simone's place and hope to return next time we're in Melbourne.
Simone's place is a character filled and very comfortable house. It has everything and more for a stay with family and or friends especially if you like the interesting and quirky Melbourne suburb of Fitzroy. It is close to a wide range of cafe's, restaraunt, bars, pubs and shops. If you love to eat out this is the place to stay! The apartment itself ihas a very well equipped kitchen if you prefer to cook and eat in, there are 3 large bedrooms (up some quite steep stairs) very comfortable beds, heaters in each room kept the house warm on a the chilly Melbourne winter (5) days we were there. Simone had provided breakfast ingredients including muesli, yogurt, spreads, fruit, and coffee / tea. Much appreciated! The house is an older terrace property that has been renovated but keeping the character of the time and decorated in a rustic style that we found relaxing and interesting. We highly reccomend Simones place if you like something a little different but still providing all facilities and comfort to enjoy in your travels. Oh and finally we found Simone very easy to communicate with both prior to and during our stay.
Great location, perfect for family with kids. just behind Brunswick St but nice and quiet everything you need is close by. The house is spacious and light filled with a really calming feel. The interior is filled with lots of interesting pieces. The soccer game was lots of fun to play and a great hit with the kids. Simone left plenty of toys for them to play with. Milk in the fridge & staples left for us to use was much appreciated. The vinyl shop over the road was fantastic definitely worth a visit.
