Hi, We are a young family from Melbourne, Australia. We love travelling and learning about heritage, cultures and cuisines from various parts of the world. So far we have traveled around Australia, New Zealand, parts of Asia, North America, East Africa,Europe and would love to explore other places. We have stayed at Airbnb accommodation, believe in shared economy and hence decided to become a host.
Why Sandhya&Chandra chose West Melbourne
The property is very popular with it's location, comfort, amenities and the beautiful views of the Melbourne city skyline. Our property in West Melbourne has been on shortterm lease since November 2017 and has been managed by a company up until May 2018. We have decided to manage it ourselves to ensure the best service is delivered to our guests.
What makes this Apartment unique
Beautiful Court Yard, 280 view of Melbourne City, 2 minutes walk to North Melbourne train station, 5 minutes into cbd by public transport or drive. 30 minutes from the airport.
100% refund if cancelled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if cancelled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Needs some work
Apartment is located in an area that is just starting to turn from commercial to residential. So restaurants and convenience stores “coming soon”. Coffee shop downstairs is only open on weekdays which gives u an indication of how new area is. Very close to train station and a good 10/15 minute walk to Queen Victoria’s markets. Arrive with milk and groceries for stay as no local shops if u don’t want to go for a 6 block uphill walk. Had issues with cleanliness and access but have made host aware and they where apologetic and said they would address.
Apartment is great for a base if u r spending time elsewhere. Host is easy to communicate with but would not stay there again.
Fantastic views, great location, modern accommodation
We drove from Adelaide to have a shopping trip in Melbourne. Property was easy to locate. Had under cover parking. The penthouse was very modern and didn’t need for anything. Sandhya and Chandra were quick to reply with any queries. Beds were very comfy! We drove around Melbourne very easily from this location, caught an Uber and walked to restaurants. Would highly recommend!
Kerry, thanks for your kind review and feedback, we are glad to know you guys enjoyed your stay. You guys have looked after our home just like yours, followed all the house rules. Hope to have you back another time! Once again we really appreciate you choosing our home for your stay. Regards Sandhya&Chandra
Ideal accommodation for an inner city vacation
The apartment was perfect and it had everything that you needed for a little vacation away from home - kettle, toaster, stove, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine and dryer as well as an iron and ironing board. The little touches were also appreciated ie coat hangers, laundry powder, toiletries (shampoo, conditioner and soap).
If you travelled by car, secure parking is included in the price which is an added bonus! That being said, once I arrived at the apartment, I rarely used the car as public transport (bus or train) is approx 30m from the front entrance but also you can easily walk to and from the city - it’s one of the benefits of the apartment’s location. From the apartment, I walked to the city centre, Queen Victoria Markets, Chinatown, Docklands and South Wharf.
The view from the apartment was spectacular, especially at night time where the lights on the Big Wheel (Docklands) can be seen from the balcony off the master bedroom. The traffic noise is minimal and when the windows and doors are closed, you cannot hear the morning or afternoon traffic - excellent sound proofing!!
The owners, Sandhya and Chandra, are very good hosts - they were always friendly and quick to respond to any questions prior, during and post my stay at the apartment. During my stay, they left me alone in order to enjoy the apartment (which is greatly appreciated).
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the apartment and would use it again when I am back in Melbourne for a getaway.

Wow confort et vue!
Beau penthouse, 2 salle de bains, lits confortables, bien équipé et bien sûr une vue splendide sur Melbourne. L’immeuble est à 15-20 minute de marche de Southern Cross station et du centre-ville. Le supermarché Coles ( le mieux garni) est attenant à la station de train. Sinon dans une direction différente même temps de marche, le magnifique Victoria market ( fermé les lundis et mercredis) . Nous étions 3 adultes et ce fut une des plus belles locations dans notre périple...Merci Shandya et Chandra!
Hosts Delight Guyliane and family! We had a wonderful opportunity to host 11 days of your stay during your Melbourne visit.
So appreciative of home and especially beautiful views of Melbourne skyline from the Penthouse.
