Note from the owner: " We loved the location of this apartment, walking distance to Essendon Station, Queens Park and Moonee Ponds Central, along with many other shops and cafes in the area. We always stay here when visiting family in the Essendon and Moonee Ponds area, and its an easy trip into the city for the theatre or the football! The view from the large sized balcony is gorgeous and this size balcony is hard to find in many apartments. The open plan living room, secure parking and modern bathrooms are a plus".
We have multiple alternative apartments available, in inner Melbourne locations.

Our Tripadvisor Reviews
"I would highly recommend this property"
We needed a place to stay for 6 weeks while our house was being repaired, and we struck gold with the Essendon & Moonee Ponds Penthouse. With a family of five, I was worried that staying in an apartment would be a challenge, however this accommodation provided more than enough space for remote schooling, remote working and relaxation. The luxurious features and amenities are top-notch, and the city views at night from the balcony are stunning. It was also comforting to know that if we had any questions or requests, Chris from StayCentral always made us feel like a priority. I would highly recommend this property and the staff of StayCentral.
