Our stay was as expected, neigbourhood is very convenient. House was as described and suited us perfect. Melanie arranged everything very convenient. Happy to come back any time
We were so well received by Melanie in her clean, tall, sweet, so comfortable home, where it doesn't lack anything, in a very well placed area.
Melanie was wonderful to deal with regarding our booking She always responded promptly to any questions I had leading up to our stay and the whole experience was very easy. The house is in a fabulous location just off Toorak Road and within easy walking distance to just about anything you could possibly need ie; supermarket, chemist, retail shopping, restaurants, pubs and of course the fantastic Chapel Street The house itself was ideal for our group of 8 women and we never had a problem finding a car space out the front. We will definitely keep this house on our list of places to stay in Melbourne in the future. Thank you Melanie
Melanie was a great host and very obliging. She was there to greet us and answer our questions. The house was well equipped and in a very quiet and safe area. Walking distance to Tram and Train and great cafés. We had a wonderful week and brilliant house for a party of 8. Thank you.
Melanie's place was great, spacious enough to fit 5 adults and 3 teens, and close to shops, restaurants and public transport. All instructions at the house were clear and Mel was just a phone call away if we needed help. Everything was clean on arrival, and we had everything we needed. Parking permit is included which was great. Definitely recommended and would stay again
Mel greeted us upon our arrival to Melbourne to show us around the house. It is super close to many shops and restaurants and easy access to public transit to go into the city if you do not have a car. We enjoyed our stay here during our time in Melbourne.
Melanie's Place was beautiful, Very nice house very close to Toorak Rd and Chapel St. Where you can find many restaurant, shops, convenience stores and supermarkets. Also close to the train/tram station. The house was very spacious and with more than enough room for our large group of 10. Our stay was great would definitely recommend staying here to anyone wishing to stay close to the city.
We really enjoyed our stay at Melanie's place at South Yarra. The location is fantastic, close to everything, and the house easily accommodated our group of 7 adults and 2 children. The beds were comfy, and the pantry had the basics to get us started and make us feel at home. Would have loved to stay longer
We had a lovely time staying at Melanie's house. After travelling for 4 hours for a 3 day conference my colleagues and I found the house quite easily. It was beautiful and in a great location. The house had everything we needed and more Melanie was very helpful and available to answer all of our questions when needed. I would definitely recommend staying here and look forward to being able to book this again. Thank you Melanie
We stayed at the place for our wedding for my bridesmaids and I to get ready together. The place had everything we needed. The place is central to everything, 2 train stops away from the city and station was within 5 mins walk. We were spoilt for choices with restaurants and cafes. Melanie was so lovely to deal with and so friendly, she fixed the bathroom light that went out within an hour of it being reported.
We loved our stay here The location was perfect - far enough from the main road to avoid noise yet close enough to be in the action in 2 minutes The house was large and comfortable. Beds were comfy and everything was clean. Items in the pantry left for our use were very convenient and thoughtful. Would stay here again.
Wonderful experience. We loved staying in the house, which had everything we needed. Melanie was friendly and helpful. She so went out of her way to fix a problem with the internet and was very accommodating when we requested a late check out. Highly recommend the house.
This is such a fantastic place for larger groups, an excellent option right near the heart of Melbourne, we were a group of 7 and we fit easily. Walking distance to chapel street and south Yarra train station. Mel was a great host who was very helpful and had great communication.
What a fantastic property The photos did not the place justice, was even greater then we had hoped. Plenty of room for the seven of us staying there and Mel had provided extra bedding and heating which kept us all very comfortable in the cold weather. We utilised the two great outdoor areas and enjoyed the large dining area that we could all sit and enjoy a meal at. Mel was a great host and very easy to contact and responded instantly to messages. The bedrooms were very great, with soft beds, and nice large bathrooms that everyone shared comfortably. Location was perfect Right off busy Toorak road, but the street was pleasant and peaceful. Short walk to Chapel Street and public transport which we utilised. We could not have been happier with our stay and would highly recommend for groups or couples to stay. I would stay here every time I came to Melbourne if I could
We had a 4 day stay at South Yarra Villa, the house was spacious, spotless and had all the appliances you could wish for. The location was fantastic we walked every where. Chapel St , Toorak Rd and Commercial Rd all only a short stroll away.. Melanie was very prompt with all communication, and very pleasant to deal with, she went out of her way to meet our needs. The house is situated on a lovely quiet Street, we never heard any road noise. We would definitely stay at the house again and recommend to others.
Melanie has a great place which is in a great location. Everything you need is there. Would recommend Melanie's place to anyone who needs a few beds and be close to vibrant Toorak Rd, Chapel St. Thanks Melanie
Melanie was great to deal with. The house was in excellent condition, perfect for what we wanted. Fantastic location, hard to find a better part of Melbourne. Thanks again for your help.
