This studio is a large, light filled room upstairs at the rear of our family home. It looks out at the treetops.
There is a comfortable Queen size bed, a sofa, TV, desk, dining table and chairs, and a kitchenette with fridge, sink, hot plates, microwave and other kitchen/dining equipment you need for your stay.
There is also a small bathroom with shower, toilet and hand basin.
There is a balcony looking west and access to a shared garden.
We are close to trams, shops, parks, and restaurants.
This large studio apartment was part of our family home, but there is now a locked door which we only unlock when someone books both downstairs and upstairs. We love the house and the location and hope that you will too.
The large room is upstairs at the back of the house and gets plenty of light and looks out onto a lovely garden. You can eat indoors or out of doors there is a table on the private west facing balcony, or there is a BBQ and outside seating available. The garden is shared with the downstairs tenants which we sometimes rent out when we are away.
The TV is connected to cable TV Foxtel including sport channels.
The room has a reverse cycle air conditioning which provides heating and cooling to the entire studio space.
When you arrive you will need to come to the front porch of the house to pick up your key. After that access is via the roller door at the rear of the house, and the external staircase.
Of course Wi-Fi is available.
You will have full use of the studio apartment, and will have keys to the back roller door and to studio door.
The back garden is shared with the house downstairs.
We are available by phone and email 24/7. We have a parking permit available that allows you to park on the nearby streets.
This studio is on a lovely, tree lined street.
North Fitzroy is a very convenient location being very close to the city and also having a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
We are only 2 minutes’ walk from North Fitzroy Village on St Georges Rd. There is a great supermarket “Piedimonte’s” which has a bottle shop and an excellent deli, as well as a chemist, “Wild Things” a natural food store, a post office, and a range of cafes and restaurants, even a gym and a library. There are plenty of pubs within easy walking distance. Brunswick Street restaurants are also only a short walk away with Smith Street, Rathdowne St and Lygon Street on our doorstep. We’ll leave you a list of some of our favourite cafes, pubs and restaurants. There is something for everyone here. We are also only 2 minutes’ walk from lovely Edinburgh Gardens and trams taking you into the city.
This is a safe area and we often walk around even late at night.
If you enjoy cycling or walking the Capital City Trail passes at the end of our street. You can follow it to the Zoo, to Abbotsford Children’s Farm or Convent, or do the full circle of about 30km which goes through Docklands and the city and follows along the Yarra River for part of the way. You can easily hire a bike locally.
This is a great location for your stay in Melbourne.
The city is about 4 kms away. There are great bikes paths if you want to cycle and we are close to 2 tram stops with regular services that take about 15 minutes into town. The 11 tram goes down Brunswick Street past the renowned restaurant strip and through the city on Collins Street and then down to Docklands. The 96 goes along Nicholson Street past the Exhibition Buildings and Carlton Gardens, through the city along Bourke Street and then along Spencer Street past Crown Casino. It then becomes light rail and passes the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre MSAC, South Melbourne Markets and then travels to St Kilda passing along the Esplanade and Ackland St.
There are lots of interconnections to other trams, trains and buses to get you where you need to go.
Our house is about 25 minutes drive to the airport depending on traffic. Or you can catch skybus to Southern Cross Station and then catch the 96 tram here.
