"Fantastic apartment in excellent location!"
Left on Apr 7, 2020 for a stay in Mar 2020
This 2 bedroom apartment with off street parking was absolutely perfect!! It is in the perfect location, super quiet yet incredibly close to Bay Street shops and the tram station into the city. The apartment itself is immaculate with a huge kitchen with an awesome living room that opens on to a great outdoor courtyard. Whenever in Melbourne I will be back here
