Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We have been staying at this accommodation for over 10 years now. They always go above and beyond with their service. Everything you need for a home style stay is provided, eg coffee machine, bread maker, sandwich toaster, full cooking appliances, rice cooker (salt/pepper, oil, paper towels, napkins, foil, cling wrap, picnic plates, large supplies on hand). If it’s not there they will supply. On top of all that you get accommodation that’s kept in immaculate condition, super clean, not like some of the other places we have stay at in the same area. Keep up the good work and we will see you in 2021. Karen, Bill & family

We stayed recently - the fourth time - for the tennis. The apartment was clean and everything we could have needed was there. Paul was a great host there when you needed him. The cafes nearby are great for a morning coffee. Thanks for a great time.

Stayed for 5 nights recently with a friend while attending the Australian Open Tennis. Apartment was great! Clean, spacious and modern. Location in Docklands was good too and an easy tram ride into the city. Had a local Woolworths close by (walking distance) for supplies.
Paul and Belinda were great hosts. Always answered my emails promptly and provided a good overview of the area and apartment on check in.
A great pool in the complex also.
Very happy with our stay and will definitely stay again if in the area. Highly recommend.

This accommodation was absolutely fantastic, I cannot speak highly enough of it. My family and I stayed for the weekend to do some Melbourne shopping. We are from the country and come down to the city every couple of months. Each time we try a new place to stay, and it is safe to say that this was by FAR the best value for money that we have ever stayed in.
The location was great, quiet, but only a short walk to the hustle and bustle of the CBD. The apartment was just beautiful, it was like stepping into a home magazine, it had everything you could possibly need.
We will definitely not be going anywhere else from now on, the price, the venue and the service from Belinda and Paul was second to none! 10/10!

I stayed here with a group of my girlfriends for Caulfield Cup weekend! The apartment was beautiful, big, clean - everything you could possibly want. We especially loved the big open space living room with floor to ceiling windows. Belinda met us downstairs on arrival and we were greeted with such a warm welcome, it was the perfect start to our weekend. Belinda helped us with getting around, pointed out where things were, gave us a list of great bars to try and even some races tips - it was service we weren't expecting and service you rarely see!

I cannot fault this apartment.. Its only a few mins walk to Southern station where the Airport bus drops you off. You can walk to all Melbournes CBD attractions or jumo on the free tram across the road. Theres grocery shops, cafes, bottles all within the buildings block.

When choosing an affordable Melbourne apartment - this is your best bet!

This was the perfect place to stay for myself and friends for the week of the Melbourne cup. The apartment was lovely, and had everything we needed - even an iron and ironing board! The apartment location was perfect, close to town, the tram, train station, and heaps of restaurants close by. Paul and Belinda were very welcoming, with great tips for dining out and a bottle of wine to go with our meal! We would definitely recommend this for a great place to stay.

We have stayed in Melbourne a lot over the past 30 years and I would have to say the apartment we had here was the best situated and laid out that we have come across.
Belinda and Paul were very, very helpful and could not do enough for us while we were there.
We had 5 great nights and if we had to catch a taxi to the opposite end of town it was only $10AUD. A tram runs right past the front of the building and the trains are but a short 10min walk up the road.
This is where we will be staying from now on, so thanks guys for making your place feel like home from now on.

2 friends and I just had a short trip to Melbourne. The apartments are modern and clean and well located, a short stroll to southern cross station. Belinda was very helpful when we checked in, pointing out where all the local amenities were. We are going back next year and will definitely staying here again.
