Description

The 1893 former headquarters for the Victorian Railways was converted into apartments in 1997. Grandeur and serenity, with high ceilings and excellent amenities. Enjoy your Melbourne experience from a convenient and easily accessible central location. Located within the free tram zone, a few minutes walk from the Skybus airport terminal and Southern Cross train station. Cross the river to the Crown Casino & Entertainment Complex, or to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.

A comfortable and inviting 2-bedroom apartment offers you accommodation to make your stay in Melbourne memorably enjoyable.

Walk through the main door of the building, and leave the hustle and bustle of the city behind. Glide up the Grand Stairs and experience how the building was when it opened in 1893.

The apartment has 6m (23ft) ceilings, with a mezzanine floor added for the bedrooms. Downstairs is the main living area, laundry and extra toilet. I also live in the apartment, so all the normal facilities are available.

You will see from the photos that the bedrooms have a balcony, open to the lounge below. They are not fully enclosed. If the open plan layout will make you feel uncomfortable, please do not book the room. I want you to have a positive experience both here and in Melbourne.

The windows are double-glazed for a peaceful night's sleep. With one meter thick external walls, the temperature inside the apartment is stable, rising gradually during the summer months and falling slowly during winter. Air conditioning is installed to help out if needed.

The building has a security system to restrict access to residents and guests. As I am now retired, I will be available to give you access to building when you return from outside. From the main entrance, you can call my apartment directly.

All parts of the apartment are accessible to you, although at 100 square meters, there is not so much space! We will need to share the bathroom, and there is an extra toilet on the lower level. Free, unlimited Wifi is available, with superfast download speeds (see the photos).

Other facilities in the building are also available for your enjoyment. Take a swim in the heated pool, relax in the spa, sweat it out in the sauna, or work out in the gym. As you are working your way through these, you may want to take a break and cook up a barbecue!

I am recently retired, so I am available to help you enjoy your stay in Melbourne. If you like, I can show you around or at least point you in the right direction.

I am just five minutes walk from the Southern Cross Railway Station and Skybus terminal from the airport. If you are carrying a lot of luggage, it's just a gentle downhill walk.

Positioned right on the boundary of the old city CBD and the vibrant new Docklands, the building in the ideal location to experience Melbourne. At the end of the block is the Yarra River. Cross the river to the Crown Casino and Entertainment Complex, or to the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, and right next door is outlet shopping!

With the Southern Cross Railway Station and Skybus terminal from the airport, getting in and out of Melbourne couldn't be easier. From Southern Cross Railway Station, you can catch a train to regional Victoria or interstate.

Trams are free within the CDB, so catch one of the historic City Circle trams and have a free tour of perimeter of the downtown area, or if you know where you are going, just jump on a tram and travel directly to your destination. Trams give you easy access to the Victoria Market at the north of the city, the Arts Centre and botanical gardens to the south, or parliament house the Paris end of Collins Street to the East.

Taxis are plentiful in the CBD, you can hail a passing taxi, and there is a taxi rank just across the road in Flinders Lane.

I like espresso coffee, so I have my own machine. You are welcome to help yourself to real coffee. The beans are fair-trade, and freshly roasted in a family business.

As I mentioned above, the bedroom is not totally enclosed, so please do not book the room if that will make you feel uncomfortable.

Hi Dirk. Thanks for your kind review. I hope you and Adalberto got some sleep on the flight home, and that you have now made a complete recovery from the cold you caught. I know it's a long way to travel, but if you find yourself out in Melbourne again, I would be very happy to catch up with you again.

Entirely as described - a very special building, Peter supremely hospitable, convenient to trams, gym & pool, totally spotless. The bedroom is partly open mezzanine accommodation which is clearly described both by Peter and other guests and within this slight constraint Peter is over the top respectful of ensuring privacy and truly exceptional hospitality. thank you!

Peter's apartment is exactly as it appears, comfortable, with interesting furnishings and arguably one of the best locations imaginable, just minutes from the train station. Peter is delightful, congenial and great to chat with, which we did on all sorts of interesting topics. I had a great stay and can say that staying at Peter's place would be a welcome bonus for any Melbourne trip.

I have been fortunate to have travelled throughout my working life, including working in China. I have visited around 30 countries, but Africa and South America are still on my list. When I travel, I like to take the back roads. It often means discovering interesting places off the worn tourist routes.

I was in a professional technical role, but decided to retire early. Now I am happy to give back a little and provide a positive experience to Melbourne visitors.

I enjoy cycling, art, architecture and history. I try to keep abreast of current events. My musical tastes are fairly broad, but I am not across the latest music. I don't have much time for celebrity culture.
