This is a whole apartment listing. Can fit 2, 4 or even 5 over two levels.
This large master bedroom is something different (4.4 meters x 3.6 meters), it is underground to the rear of the apartment so it is pitch black at night and quite quiet, you are more likely to hear the hum of the lift than people outside on the street.
The apartment is completely open plan with a void between upstairs and downstairs. It is decorated in a funky baroque style, think Dita Von Teese mixed with New York Loft feel. Perfect for couples, a family or a group of friends.
It has very high ceiling upstairs and is both light and dark, white walls contrasting with a silver/black wallpapered feature wall and black chandelier. Handpicked artwork and renovated pieces make this an eclectic one of a kind place to stay, not like stale modern hotel rooms. A customised blind of the iconic Melbourne Arts Centre and Hamer Hall.
There is a Queen sized bed downstairs and a single bed or two can be set up in the study large study (4.4 meters x 3.9 meters) Both beds with fully sprung mattresses and a memory foam mattress topper for extra comfort. And there is another double sofa bed upstairs.

Hello World, I'm sharing my local knowledge with the world... one guest at a time.
I have traveled quite extensively every 2-3 years for usually 3-4 months at a time. The first time I traveled Overseas alone was when I was 16, to the US and Canada. I lived in the UK for 2 1/2 years and again for 3 months last year and most of my traveling has been backpacking and used other sharing economy websites, staying on couches and letting out my couch. I used AirBnB during my 3 week trip to New Zealand in 2013 and thought this is perfect for me living right in the heart of the city and working in Tourism and Events I can share my local knowledge with the world... one guest at a time.
I work in Events Management and have worked on such exciting events as the London Olympics 2012, The Commonwealth Games, The Australian Open and the Tim Burton Exhibition Opening at ACMI.
I love horse riding, travel, theatre, comedy shows, live bands and seeing and experiencing what the world has to offer. I have traveled extensively but I am in love with Melbourne and its many faces.
I am a frugal traveler and love to share my tips and there is a lot to see and do in Melbourne that is free. I currently work in the Tourism Industry so I know this place pretty well and living in the city well, it give life a completely different flavour, I love it.
Simple as a keen traveler and loving my city I want to share it. I live in a central location and I have had many friends across the world stay, some whom I have met on my travels, some who became friends after they stayed.
AirBnB will help me stay in my apartment, living in the city can be quite expensive so by utilsing AirBnB I can continue to live in the city I love.
AirBnB has helped me renovate upstairs, removing my carpet and replacing with floorboards. Installing a custom blind of Melbourne's art centre and skyline.
