Hayley's apartment is terrific in terms of comfort, included parking space under the building and locality - walking distance to Melbourne Arts Precinct and CBD (about 20-25 minutes stroll) but, if you prefer public transport, the Domain interchange tram stop is 5 minute walk away. Hayley is a great host who will attend to any concerns you have promptly and made the check-in/check-out process extremely easy, The apartment itself is spacious, well equipped with a large balcony overlooking South Melbourne and the city. Being easy walking distance to large supermarkets, Sth Melbourne Markets and many great pubs made it very convenient for us during our month long stay - we started to feel like locals! We would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to visit Melbourne and would love to return ourselves if the opportunity arises in the future.
Beautiful and modern apartment. I found it much more spacious than what it looked like in the photos. It was the perfect size for my family and my parents (4 adults & 1 baby). It even had enough space for a portable cot. Hayley was prompt in her response, and was really helpful - she made the whole process easier. We really enjoyed our stay.
Positives: Location of the apartment was awesome, very near to St Kilda domain, which is one of the main tram junctions. Only takes about 6-9 minutes to walk there, very convenient. Very convenient to get into the CBD due to St Kilda domain junction. There is food around the area, such as Japanese, Italian, Taiwanese/Asian and modern Australian. All within walking distance, ranging from 2 to to 10minutes. Cafe Rosco (10 minutes away) does free delivery for Italian and Modern Australian food to the apartment, extremely convenient! Balcony provides a great way to enjoy takeaway dinner overseeing South Melbourne. Negatives: Aircon did not cool the room to a comfortable temperature. Setting the aircon to 19 degrees barely cooled the room to 27 degrees during the day. No aircon in bedroom, so if you have infants or children would can't stand a warm room then be prepared to borrow a fan from somewhere.
The place was exactly as described and pictured. Hayley is easy to get in contact with, and check in and out were very simple. Great access to trams going all over the city. Being so close to the botanical gardens is also a big plus. Having the underground parking was great as well, but it was a bit tricky to get out of the carpark entrance. We all really enjoyed our stay, and hope to stay again.
