When we began this accommodation business in St Kilda, the original plan was to become involved in the backpacker market. But it was decided that we should buy nice apartments that we could live in ourselves, if the backpacker concept failed.

On finding our first apartment in the Majestic, in Fitzroy St, we thought it was too good to offer to backpackers. So the decision was made to offer it to more mature travellers; those who want some very nice, spacious accommodation, but didn’t want to pay expensive hotel prices.

We ran the business with the one apartment for six months, and then started buying more apartments in St Kilda, Southbank and Brunswick, as the demand for really nice apartments grew. Only four years later, with five apartments, our business was known around the world, with guests arriving from many different countries each year; many of them returning guests.

Now you, as our guest, can enjoy the benefits of our experience in creating comfortable ‘homes away from home’, in the CBD, East Melbourne, Collingwood, Kew, Rosanna, Northcote, Brunswick, Essendon, Docklands, Port Melbourne, Southbank and St Kilda.

We have updated the décor and soft-furnishings regularly, and other inclusions such as Smart TVs, free Netflix and unlimited wireless internet access as they are requested by our guests.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your stay with us and welcome any feedback you wish to pass on.
