Recently renovated & furnished with heritage & handcrafted furniture, we are 2 min from the beach, 15 min from the CBD & 5 min from trendy Bay Street amenities. Comfortably accommodating two, enjoy private bathroom, pool, gym, balcony and garden.
We have just finished a fabulous renovation and are now ready to share!
YOUR GUEST ROOMS:
The white bedroom is large, airy and sunny with a queen size real bed with posture slats that is very comfortable. Luxury linen and towels make you feel special and your room includes in-room tea and coffee making facilities, ironing board and iron. Adjacent, your luxury private bathroom includes a large bath and open rain head shower which is quite a lovely experience! A washing machine, Sukin shampoo, conditioner, and a hairdryer are also provided. There are quality fixtures and fittings throughout and a child's bed is available upon request. There is a small desk and chair if you need to work and free wi-fi access. Private courtyard with fresh herb garden for sunny breakfasts and use of the state of the art kitchen is yours to enjoy.
The apartment is part of the historic Swallow and Ariel Biscuit factory, which in the 1850's was the fifth largest factory in the world. The sympathetic creation of the apartments in the 1990s kept the stunning original features, while incorporating modern facilities. Downstairs we have one long, large room that incorporates a lounge area with 54" wall mounted Flat Screen TV; a professional coffee machine for that morning wake up latte; leather couches and chairs, an open fire for cosy winter nights and all opening onto a balcony garden. The dining area and state-of-the-art kitchen share the rest of the room. With high ceilings and massive wooden beams, polished floor boards, rich Persian rugs, big windows with plantation shutters and hand crafted furniture, (made by your craftsman host, Clive), the atmosphere is relaxed, spacious and friendly.
YOU WILL ENJOY STAYING HERE IF:
You like to make yourselves at home in a relaxed, friendly environment where you come and go as you please and largely look after yourselves. We love to share time, a meal, conversation, a glass of wine and you can choose how much or how little you would also like to share with us. We enjoy chatting and sharing our local knowledge and are very happy to suggest places to eat, what to see and how to get around. You are welcome to use the kitchen and our shared space. You will also enjoy staying here if you like dogs. Eddie is very much 'part of the family' and although nearly a year old, is still a puppy; he is bouncy, loveable and very friendly. Please be aware when booking!
Disponible para huéspedes
Please share as much of our home as you wish. We love to talk and you most are welcome to be with us. If you prefer to be more private that is also perfectly OK with us. You will have your own set of keys and there is your own suite plus a balcony, shared garden with outside seating, a pool and well equipped gym for you to use. We have visitor parking permits to lend you which enable you to park right outside the apartment unrestricted.
Atención a los huéspedes
We are happy to share our space and lives with you. We will be living in the apartment during your stay but we both work full time and will be out of the house for most of the day, except on weekends. In the evening we cook, talk, share a meal, play with the pup, share a glass of wine and usually listen to, play music or watch television. We have traveled widely, enjoy conversation and love meeting people. You can choose how much time you would like to spend with us and retire to your room if you prefer your privacy. We don't provide breakfast but encourage you to use the kitchen for whatever meals you might like to prepare.
Otros aspectos destacables
We don't allow smoking in the house but smoking outside is fine with us.
Although we love animals, Eddie takes up all that space so other pets will not be a workable situation. We are happy to consider one child visiting, and we have a lovely child's bed, but we need to think about how they will manage with Eddie dog. Please discuss this with us in advance. The whole apartment may be available accommodating 4 people on occasions. Please contact us.
We extend a warm welcome to our guests and expect that you respect our space, report any breakages, clean up after any cooking and keep the rooms tidy. We speak some French, Italian, minimal German and tourist Greek and look forward to welcoming you to Port Melbourne and all the city has to offer!
