Sensational views and central downtown location in quiet comfort
I live in Melbourne Australia but I'm a dedicated world traveller. I own properties for rent in Australia, Thailand and Argentina. After falling in love with Buenos Aires several years ago I bought a beautiful apartment in the historic and charming area of Recoleta. That first international property gave me the Hosting "bug". You can share some of the excitement and interest I discovered in Buenos Aires by renting this truly unique and beautifully furnished home away from home (greater than 2,200 Sq foot) apartment yourself. You can find the VRBO/HomeAway Buenos Aires property by searching for property id 141730 For a simple cheap and cheerful holiday in the sun near the beach you can't go past Jomtien in Thailand the land of smiles and only 1.5 hours from Bangkok airport. You can find the VRBO/HomeAway Thailand property by searching for property id 480292 Or come and visit me in Melbourne some time..! So pick from one of my great locations and you can't fail to enjoy yourself.

Perfect luxury apartment
Fabulous location at corner of Flinders Lane and Spring Street. Close to best bars and restaurants in Melbourne plus the Kino Cinema and Treasury Gardens. In the free tram zone so easy to get to main shops and sights if you don’t feel like walking though it’s no more than 10 minutes walk to Federation Square, NGV, Flinders Station, Emporium etc. Cumulus, City Wine Shop and The European are great nearby options for brunch and you have to go to Pelegrinis and The Butchers Diner in Bourke St to experience Melbourne cafe culture.
Apartment itself was exactly as described with fabulous views, well equipped kitchen, comfortable living space and good TV program options. Very comfortable beds and pillows with crisp Egyptian cotton bedding. Luxurious feel and experience with beautiful touches and artwork.
Hamish is a great host and very responsive to queries.
Would definitely recommend for one or two couples and will definitely book again when we are back in Melbourne.
Absolutely wonderful stay
We all really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful apartment in Melbourne. Awesome location, free city tram is just down the street, marvelous restaurants close by and lots to see and do. The apt has everything you could need in it, it’s just beautiful. Well equipped if you want to cook, and the pool and gym were great to have a available. Hamish kindly met us there and made sure we were familiar with everything before heading off, we would stay here again in a heartbeat.
Modern Apartment in Ideal Location
We’ve been renting vacation apartments and houses for 25 years and have experienced quite the gamut of properties. This high-end, new apartment met or exceeded all of our expectations. Hamish was there to greet us upon arrival and responded quickly to email queries during our week long stay. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Good WiFi and TV (we used our Netflix acct while there). The complete suite of mod cons were in good working order. The building is secure with a manned front desk. The location is ideal for access to public transport; the tram stops and train station are nearby. The apt building is between two hotels that are on the pick up list of some day tour companies-very convenient. Loads of good restaurants are within walking distance and there is a modern cinema just around the corner . The IGA Express and 7-Eleven are close for groceries and snacks. We had a great stay and recommend this rental without hesitation.
Very nice, modern apartment with great city views!
The apartment is very attractive and well appointed. Bed (only used one of them) was very comfortable. Electric window shades were very nice! A beautiful walk to the Tennis Center for the Australian Open, and botanical garden. Lots of small shops and restaurants nearby. One word of caution, this is an an apartment building with private owners that are not very friendly toward short term visitors. There is NO accommodation for storing luggage prior to a 2:00pm to 6:00pm check-in window. The owners suggestion of using the Southern Cross Train Station for luggage storage was no good if needing more than one locker. We needed 3, and there were never that many available at one time. We ended up sitting on our luggage in a train station for 5 hours after 26 hours of flying... It was a brutal way to start the trip. So, If you don't have baggage, or you have a late afternoon flight arrival... great place!
The apartment is absolutely beautiful!
The apartment was a perfect location for walking to the tennis. Everything was catered for...comfy beds, comfy lounge, roomy bedrooms and bathrooms and modern appliances. The view was quite spectacular from the 23rd floor. Would highly recommend! Thanks Hamish and Rebecca.
