As you arrive at Apartments @ Kew (Walpole Gardens) you?ll realize the location is prized.

The building fašade resembles luxurious Roman villas and is ideally situated in a quiet tree-lined street within a few minutes? walk from public transport and shops.

These townhouses represent outstanding value for money within the serviced accommodation sector in Melbourne, especially for families looking for the space of a full townhouse without having to pay a King?s ransom.

What really makes these townhouses unique is their sheer size ? they are much, much larger than your average apartment and offer split level accommodation with an open plan living area and private courtyard downstairs.

You?ll find that the property is better equipped than most other short term accommodation properties, and it actually has all the essentials to make a longer term stays very comfortable.

Every townhouse features a minimum of a 42" inch flat screen TV, DVD player, over 100 channels of FOXTEL, zoned climate control, alarm system, security basement parking and a private courtyard with outdoor setting.

The townhouses all have a separate laundry with large capacity washing machine and dryer.

Spa baths and KS beds are available in the most two bedroom townhouses. The master bedroom features a 2nd television.

? Laundry with large capacity washing machine and dryer
? Open plan dining area dining table to seat for 6 people,
? Large 42? plasma TV, DVD player, over 100 channels of FOXTEL

The well equipped kitchen makes life easy for those guests who like to self-cater. If cooking isn?t your preference then tempt your taste buds at one of Kew?s renowned culinary outlets (many of which will deliver gourmet food to your door).

The open-plan living area is downstairs, and upstairs you?ll find either two or three bedrooms, and a main central bathroom.

If you have chosen a two bedroom townhouse you'll find a king sized bed in the master bedroom and a two person corner spa in the main bathroom (by request as limited).

If you have chosen a three bedroom property you?ll find a queen sized bed in the master bedroom and an additional private ensuite bathroom.

The private courtyards feature a solid hardwood outdoor setting making this the ideal accommodation for families who desire a secure outside area for children to play or enjoy a family barbecue. You can also request an optional portable electric barbeque at the time of booking.

After staying for just a week the friendly Park Avenue Accommodation Group?s housekeeping and maintenance staff will service your townhouse.

Kew?s residential streets are graced by stunning gardens and grand Victorian and Art Deco mansions and this is why the suburb has long been regarded as being one of Melbourne?s most desirable. The area offers quality schools, shopping, public transport and abundant parklands, including Yarra Bend and the Studley Parks, all this combined with the convenience of being only 6km from Melbourne CBD. The townhouses are ideally located for travellers who want to be close to the action in Melbourne?s sought after Eastern suburbs

Many of our long stay guests tell us about the great friendships they have made whilst staying with us as they share common stories with neighbors about expats relocating to a new city and their endeavours to find a permanent rental or to buy into the area.

Just prior to vacating we ask you to complete our guest comments questionnaire and following are some of the comments we?ve received.

"Great Family Accommodation?

?This place is a far cry from your regular serviced apartments, it's much more like a family home. We recently relocated to Melbourne from San Franciso and spent two weeks staying here in a three bedroom townhouse. The property is situated in a small complex of townhouses in a nice quiet residential street. We were particularly impressed by the size of the townhouse and also liked having our own private courtyard. The kitchen was large and equipped with everything we needed and we also had our own laundry.?

"Home Away from Home"

?This is a very easy to live in home away from home for a family ? very comfortable for a family. The maintenance instructions fir appliances ? very good, clear and well equipped. Cleaning and maintenance staff were friendly, efficient, helpful and well organised?

"Loved the Location"

?We loved the area ? close to all amenities. Apartments were beautiful ? very spacious and clean. Great undercover car parking. Lovely area that is nice and quiet. Will recommend this to all our friends. Thank you

"Outstanding Service"

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your team for your outstanding service to my family and I on our recent visit back home to Australia. We found the accommodation to be superbly presented and the cleaning staff and service along with your responsiveness to our queries to be of an excellent standard. We will definitely continue to use your accommodations on subsequent visits to Australia and I intend to recommend these apartments to my colleagues and friends both in Australia and those looking for family accommodation outside of Melbourne while on work relocation. All the very best to you and the team! And thanks once again..."
