“Great apartment, great location, wonderful hosts, everything we hoped for.”

We booked the apartment for 2 months and from the beginning of the booking process to the end of our stay the service provided by Nina was superb. Nina made our booking easier for us, sent details of all facilities by e-mail, offered to meet us at the airport, and because of the length of our stay asked us if there was anything else we required.

Nina was there to meet and greet at the apartment, and explained everything including the myki travel cards which were a real bonus, and the free wi-fi. The fridge was well stocked to see you in, and there was a loaf of home baked bread which was delicious. The apartment itself was clean and well furnished, and from the beginning it felt like a home from home for us. The swimming pool was fantastic - well maintained, lovely temperature and perfect for an early morning dip. The apartments are serviced by a 24 hour concierge, who were always there and available.

The location of the apartment was superb - walk out the apartments and the South Bank was right there, along with so many tram stops with easy links throughout the City and environs. The City centre was just a short, pleasant walk. It was just so easy to get around from the apartment location! South Melbourne market with its delights was very close, along with supermarkets so stocking up was no problem at all.

At the end of our stay we were sad to leave. We hope to return one day and the first thing we will look at is if this apartment is available.

Wonderful hosts, wonderful place, wonderful stay. Thank you, Nina and Gary.

“Funky 1 BR apartment next to the Casino and Convention Centre”

We had a fantastic 5 day visit in this conveniently located apartment. It is decked out like a true home away from home with a modern Asian flare. We were greeted with cheese, home made bread and champaign for our 25th year anniversary. The view from the 23rd floor was far enough above the freeway that the traffic noise was not an issue - and we could see Port Phillip. Views of the sun set were a bonus. There is a tram stop across the street and a small IGA grocery store under the building. It is only a 5 min walk to a free tram stop for the CBD.
There is also parking in the building if you have a car - very helpful.
We also had a late flight out of melbourne and we were thankfully able to organise a late check out.
Thanks Gary.

Beyond all expectations in the the heart of Southbank. Couldn't ask for a more convenient and central site while enjoying walking along the Yarra or taking in South Melbourne markets.
Close to public transport for easy access to the city. Trams are excellent way to see the sites and visit shops, restaurants or just move about.
Plenty of wonderful places to eat and check out in the local markets
Apartment has everything you need and is secure for a person travelling alone.
Nina & Gary are outstanding hosts...thank you

“Perfect Place To Stay In Melbourne”
Reviewed 17 March 2016 for a stay in March 2016

WOW... Big thank you to Nina & Gary for making our recent ten day stay in Melbourne a memorable one.
Their apartment is the best self-catering apartment we have stayed in. Nina & Gary had gone out of their way to provide everything you could need for a ten day relaxing stay. The welcome we received was fantastic and Gary's intro regarding the apartment and what there was to do and see was most helpful. The home made bread, spreads, fruit, juice and Nespresso coffee pods made it more like visiting family than renting a room.
The location is perfect with a tram stop outside the door an easy walk into the CBD (10min) IGA store with bottle shop on ground floor, DFO stores just across the road (15min walk) Cafe's, Bars and restaurants line the rivers edge.
Casino and Conference facilities across the road and lots of restaurants and bars in the other direction. Great food court behind the casino for that late nite snack.
As a V8 supercar fan, the massive B&O TV was awesome, my wife was out all day Sunday at a conference, so with a beer and the big race on I was a happy chap.
We did not see everything we had planed to so we are heading back in the near future.... Guess where we will be booking.
We have no hesitation in recommending Nina & Gary's Apartment to family, friends and anyone looking for a great comfortable place to stay.

Great Central Location, you could walk from Southern Cross but we had suitcases and thankfully the owner picked us up.The apartment is modern, comfortable , clean and well appointed. CBD, DFO, South Melbourne markets all within 10 minute walk. the Casino is on the opposite side of the road if that's for you. Plenty of eating places over the road at the Casino promenade including a food hall, if you want produce for cooking the wonderful South Melbourne Market is an easy walk.
The owner provided a good intro to the apartment, had heaps of info about local attractions and transport options including mykis for loan (just put your own credit on and return at the end of your visit) which gives you an option to get around the area on public transit, this begins right outside the door and the free city circuit tram is a couple of minutes walk away.
Overall a great experience we will do it again !!

A very good, comfortable one bedroom apartment, very convenient to all on Southbank and close to the city. It even has a licensed IGA next door.

The apartment is in a large building and other apartments can be rented from a rental company. But why would you when Nina and Gary are such excellent and thoughtful hosts? They were most generous in provisioning the apartment for us even to lending us MYki cards. Not that we used them with the apartment being so close to everything.

All in all a very pleasant stay and one we hope to repeat.

This is the best appointed self-catering apartment I've ever stayed in. The owners have gone out of their way to provide everything you could need for a short to medium length stay. The welcome I received from them was fantastic. The location is perfect with a tram stop outside the door and easy walk into the CBD. Would have been happy to spend much longer there.
