This is a terrific base for visitors to Melbourne, especially those who are staying for an extended period. You can reach Melbourne's best attractions quickly, but also enjoy the quiet comforts of home. It's compact, and perfect for mature travelers.
The apartment is situated on a quiet street. It is one of 12 apartments in a quiet and friendly block. Please be mindful that noise carries easily in this neighbourhood, especially if the windows are open. It is essential that visitors respect the privacy of other tenants in the building.
The apartment is fully furnished, and will suit a single visitor, a couple, or even a small family. It is easy to maintain, well lit (thanks to large windows facing north, south and east), and commands a fantastic view east towards Mt Dandenong. We are located on the second floor, so there are some stairs to climb, and the building does not have an elevator.

Échanges avec les voyageurs
We live only a short distance away, and are happy to help with anything that can make your stay more comfortable. But we also like to ensure you have complete privacy during your stay, and we won't bother you unless absolutely necessary. You can call or email us if you have any questions about your stay in Richmond.
Check-in time is 200pm, and check-out time is 1100am, unless otherwise agreed in advance. Please let us know if you have any special circumstances, and we will try to accommodate your requests.
The kitchen is modern and well stocked with all essential items, but we do not have an oven. It is sufficient for most short-term visitors who wish to cook.
There is only one bed, so the apartment is generally suitable only for one or two guests.
We provide linen, towels, and other 'basic' amenities (cleaning products for floors, windows, kitchen, shower etc, detergent and laundry powder). If you are staying for only a short term, this should be sufficient for your needs. If you stay longer, you can easily buy more of these products at the Coles supermarket located only five minutes away (on Church St).
We do not have unlimited download capacity with the modem, but the amount available should be ample for most users. If you exceed the monthly limit, the speed of the modem will slow dramatically. So please try to limit your use to email and basic web searches. Streaming movies and TV programs will quickly use up the available capacity, so we suggest you avoid the modem for these purposes. If you expect to use the internet a lot during your visit, you may wish to purchase a separate pre-paid service.
I'm a lecturer in international relations; and have a serious case of travel bug; NYC is a favoured destination, and our next dream destination is the Middle East -- Turkey, Israel, Lebanon (anywhere with good food, basically).
