Our Tripadvisor Reviews

"Great Location Close to Airport and City"
Left on Nov 29, 2019 for a stay in Nov 2019
I have just spent 3 weeks in November and the apartment was very clean, in excellent condition with all the comforts of home. We had some wonderful dinners in the beautiful kitchen with relatives. The apartment was quiet and the bedrooms very comfortable. A 3 minute walk to catch a tram and 5 minutes for the train to the city. I would definetley stay at this apartment again and recomend it to my friends.

This an individual apartment located in a recently built property in central Essendon, with an elevator connecting the undercover garage area, the street level lobby and your floor. There is no reception here.


Perfect for four, you won't find anything else like this two-bedroom apartment (with a study with a double sofa bed) in Essendon. If you want good quality accommodation in Essendon, this is it. If you just want an everyday, cheap stay, this property won't be what you need.

This very comfortable apartment is in a brilliant location for a city stay; close to the city but not in it. You can easily enjoy its first class entertainment, arts, sporting and social options or just as easily wander to nearby cafes, restaurants and shops; including a DFO and large shopping centre not too far away.

The sense of space and light in this spacious apartment creates a warm living space that is easy to live in, and is accompanied by modern appliances and premium quality finishes. Stylish and smart, efficient layouts allow for more living space whilst maintaining access to all modern appliances when required.

This spacious apartment includes a generous balcony with 180 degree, commanding views from the City itself, east and north to the Dandenong ranges. You can sit back and enjoy the sense of open space, or simply entertain family and friends in this large, private space with the large sun shades when needed. There are two queen bedrooms and a double sofa bed if needed. Excellent facilities include a 65" UHD Smart TV with free Netflix in the living area, as well as a 43" TV in the master bedroom. Unlimited Wi-Fi and security, reserved, undercover car parking is included.


Your corporate-style apartment includes high quality furnishings and appliances, linen, towels, and a full kitchen and dedicated laundry, as well as a large outdoor setting on the very long north and east-facing balcony. There's also a cot and high chair available for free if needed. Don't forget to bring linen for the cot.

​​​​All tea, coffee, toiletries, washing and cleaning products and other welcome supplies can be found in the kitchen, bathroom and bedrooms. You will need to purchase more of these consumables if you need them for the rest of your stay. 


Note from the owner: "We bought this apartment six years ago because of its top location. Cafes, restaurants, pubs, gym, swimming pool, public transport, are all at your doorstep; plus a lovely view of the city from our balcony. Fantastic".


We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.
