If you want to be close to the city, but not in the city, this is the place to stay. Northcote is a gentrified area, so the area has all the benefits of a great selection of cafes, restaurants, shops and everyday requirements; yet it is a pleasant distance out from the city, so it's not in the city. It is surrounded by Brunswick, Thornbury, Ivanhoe and Fitzroy North.
Perfect for four, your stylish, new, corporate apartment accommodation is tucked into the quiet end of Campbell Grove, with stunning views over the city of Melbourne. The tram at the end of this short street runs right through the middle of Clifton Hill, Fitzroy and Collingwood to the south and Thornbury to the north.
The small apartment complex combines the beauty of magnificent open-style architecture with light, water-filled gardens, and beautiful modern interior areas.
This is a two-bedroom apartment: with a king bed and splittable queen bed. There's also a cot and high chair available if needed. Don't forget to bring linen for the cot.
With more than 500 reviews for StayCentral on Tripadvisor, Google & Airbnb, with a guest rating of 4.9 Stars, why look elsewhere?

Very well set up apartment with everything you would need for a prolonged stay. Easy walk to the tram for the half an hour trip into the city. We were spoilt for choice for places to eat on the nearby shopping strip. The view from the apartment was ever-changing and amazing.

Location, location, location. Exceeded expectations with the presentation of the apartment only exceeded by the view. Grab it when available, it won't be for long.
Very close by in High Street, you will find an interesting selection of colourful shops, cafes, restaurants, a supermarket, ATMS etc; all your everyday needs are catered for. There are plenty of bars, and a lively music scene as well. For more great restaurants, cafes, bars and a brilliant cinema visit Westgarth village, only a short stroll down High Street. The area is among the best-served by public transport in Melbourne.
Your Melbourne corporate apartment includes high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, beautiful bath towels, a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities. Opening windows allow fresh air through all rooms when you want it.
NB: Many of our apartments are pet-friendly

Lower rates are available for longer bookings, and for stays that are booked well in advance.
Long-term stays are also welcome.
Pets are allowed in many of our properties, as long as they are quiet, and do not damage or climb on the furnishings.
We require a minimum security bond of $600, which will be pre-authorised not charged to your credit card several days before your arrival and released back automatically by your bank after your departure subject to damage check. For much longer stays or other reasons, this amount may change and the bond will be deducted instead of pre-authorised. Please enquire with us for more details before making a booking.
All tea, coffee, toiletries, washing and cleaning products and other welcome supplies can be found in the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. You will need to purchase more of these consumables if you need them for the rest of your stay.
