Rated 5 out of 5 by from Truly an Inner City Gem After a long drive to Melbourne, it was a great pleasure to be welcomed by Chris the amiable host of this Victorian era property, which is tastefully renovated and fitted out with all the mod cons. Chris showed us around the facilities and provided an excellent guide on all the fine places to eat out and explore in this fantastic location of South Melbourne. Close to everything, from South Melb. markets, fine dining, great pubs, tramlines, you name it, it is within walking distance. Anyone looking for a place to have a relaxing time in the heart of Melbourne will not be disappointed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Convenient location We stayed for 10 days and enjoyed the great location close to trams, cafes, pubs & South Melbourne market. The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed and it was good to be able to have our pets with us. Was also able to park in front of property.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Comfortable Getaway with a Fabulous Owner Sleek modernity with wonderful touches of home. I was greeted by Chris who gave me a tour to acquaint me with the layout and various features. The space is very inviting with warm golden wood floors and fireplaces. Bathrooms and kitchen are clean and modern, highly functional with everything one needs. The house gets great light! No gloominess whatsoever. The Melbourne Market is right around the corner with AMAZING foods and goods, a great place to buy those little gifts that one needs to take back to wherever home might be. Transportation to other parts of the city is also easily accessed, within minutes. Also, the surrounding eateries offer a myriad of choices. Everywhere we ate in the neighborhood was a treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible House, Fantastic Owner If I could move in, I would! This house is so well-put together. My family (4 adults, 2 children) and I were first impressed by how beautiful the house was. The restorations were artistic and full of purpose; the modern touches were luxurious and simple. There was so much space that we could all share, (or not share). I imagine that had we been there at anytime other than the dead of winter, evenings would have been spent in the backyard under the palm tree, or on the balcony at sunset. After we had been in the house for a few days it was impossible not to notice how everything, (from the paperbacks to the cookware), was carefully chosen to reflect the character of the house as well as meet the anticipated needs of a group of travelers. What a lovely place! The location of Caldera is ideal. The neighborhood is charming- we tried to get to the South Melbourne Market each day it was open for fresh, delicious treats along with anything else you may need. There are also 2 grocery stores that you can walk to in 5 minutes, as well as many restaurants and coffee shops. If you want to get to the CBD- no worries- you can either hop on a tram for a few stops, or walk to Collins Street in 10 minutes. Anywhere else in Melbourne is easily accessed by public transportation. Chris, the property owner, was there at arrival and was a great resource if we needed anything. I whole-heartily recommend this property to anyone traveling to Melbourne. It was a beautiful experience to come to the other side of the world and find such a lovely home to share with my family.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing renovated 1880's Victorian Terrace in Emer Amazing wonderful house. Fully equipped, great furnishings, very comfortable and a brilliant place to stay. �Caldera� is a gorgeous Victoria Terrace House in South Melbourne�s Emerald Hill. Majestically renovated, the property is spacious, immaculate and simple in its order. With its sleek design and layout the house made me and my family feel immediately right at home! The house had everything we needed. Its location providing walks in all directions that give food, shopping, dining, history, art, theatres, gallery�s, markets, and architecture of old and new. Trams and buses are easy to access though it is so close to the CBD and a beautiful walk to the Botanical Gardens. The house is very well insulated on the inside, quiet, and has a back courtyard that is well protected to sit or, as we did over the Easter celebration, dine alfresco. Chris, the property owner, was there to greet us on arrival and gave us a full tour of the house with all the necessary details of its domestic operations and local shopping areas. The South Melbourne Market a most delightful experience up the back laneway and on the next street corner. Truly a pleasure! There was so much more to embrace beyond our short stay we most certainly will return if only to once more hear the toll of the Town Hall clock ring out its time. Thoroughly enjoyed staying at �Caldera� and have no hesitation in recommending it especially for the feel of a home away from home and a most enjoyable time.
