Review of one night stay in St Kilda apartment
Apartment was very well equipped in most respects ,clean and certainly comfortable. With only one night stay didn’t get much chance to fully utilise its potential. A well stocked kitchen was much appreciated. It is situated close to the thriving area of St Kilda. The parking ramp area though does need a little smoothing. Overall a very good value unit!
Cosy & conveniently located
The apartment's location is its greatest asset. It offers an ideal blend of a quiet, safe neighbourhood that provides easy access to the Melbourne CBD. It is situated one block from the lovely Saint Kilda Botanical Garden and one block in the opposite direction to the Saint Kilda Primary School #67 tram stop. The lively Acland/Barkly street district, with its wide selection of cafes, restaurants, & pastry shops, is a pleasant 15 minute walk from the apartment. Numerous full service grocery stores (Coles, Woolworths & Aldi) are all within easy walking distance as well as small independent butcher and seafood shops. A convenient parking spot right at the front door was a secure place for our rental car.
The apartment was clean and well equipped for self-catering. The listing photos provide an accurate depiction of the compact space. Limited floor area and counter-top space make it a one-person kitchen and it would be difficult to seat more than two at the dining table. The apartment was adequately sized for two people but we would likely look for something a little more spacious for a future stay of such duration.
A Chromecast in the TV made for convenient streaming of Netflix. The WiFi speed was adequate, although the signal from the modem located in the apartment next door was somewhat spotty, dropping out frequently.
Jonathan was a great host during our four week stay. He was responsive and attentive to all our questions and issues and was genuinely interested in ensuring we enjoyed our time in Melbourne. He even provided pre-loaded myki cards for use on the tram system. Our security deposit was refunded promptly upon check-out, which was greatly appreciated.
Overall the apartment provided good value in a great location with a tremendously accommodating and hospitable host. We have no hesitation recommending it to others.
Great Location and very well cleaned!
The apartment seems smaller in real life than viewed in the images, however it still fits 2 people perfectly well! It is extremely well cleaned and well kept and had a very comfy couch and bed.it wa perfectly located! 2 minutes from one tram stop and it was easy to navigate the tram system from there! It was also only about a 15 minute walk to the beach and Luna park and abou 10 minutes from Acland street which has a huge amount of cafes, restaurants and bars to choose from! Not to mention one of the best cake shops!
The parking is not as expected, I have a small car and found I very difficult to park my car and then drive it out without hitting the bottom of my car on the step up to the drive. This was the only thing we thought could do with being fixed! Overall it’s in a very quiet location and we had an amazing stay!! Thankyou very much For allowing us to use your accomodation !
Comfortable and tidy
Great place to stay! Quiet neighbourhood. The owner left a "Welcoming Booklet" which provided helpful and detailed tips to connect to the wifi and TV to watch Netflix. Even stated where the closests shops were! This place was very comfortable (especially the beds!), neat and tidy. We enjoyed staying here. The parking space is a little difficult for the low cars as its kinda like going up a slight gutter. So just need to take care, but there is plenty of room to move. All cooking utensils and cookware are provided which made it handy to make a nice home cooked meal instead of eating takeaway all the time. The owner is quick to reply when you message him. Thank you for letting us stay in your home.
We had a very comfortable stay with everything we needed and great location! Appreciated the extra hospitality offered by the owner - even returning lost items! Thanks for a great stay! we would definitely stay here again!
