This space is for solo travellers looking for a quiet haven. It is a colourful oasis filled with art in the heart Melbourne's cultural centre. Whilst most of this beautiful heritage-listed building is a hotel, you will be sharing this airy private apartment with the host and Iniki, a cheeky seeing eye dog puppy-in-training. You will be surrounded by art and treasures gathered from decades of world adventures.
The loft is a warm, snuggly space of peace, quiet and stars, just big enough for a double bed and some wriggle room around it for one person. The bed is a soft, comfy double mattress on the floor. The loft has a wardrobe and a dressing gown for your use. The space is private because it is high and can be curtained off. Although this apartment is central to everything, it is so quiet, you are more likely to wake to birds singing than city noise. Luxurious handmade soaps are available for use in the bathroom.
Living room, kitchen, bathroom, pool.
Общение с гостями
I have loads of local knowledge of Victoria and Melbourne. Just ask me what nationality of food you want to eat and I can send you in the right direction. Want to meet penguins in the city? No problem, I know where they hang out. I can also help you find the best tram line to get to other parts of Melbourne.
Другие важные подробности
The steps to the loft are high and may be a challenge for people with problem knees. The loft is small, it fits only one person. If you have a lot of luggage, it can be kept safely downstairs where there is loads of room.
Please respect that this is our home.
Hopefully the following are obvious -
- keep our place clean and tidy.
- There is a state-of-the-art eco far infrared heater in the living area which is thermostatically controlled. It turns on only for a few hours each day to maintain the set temperature. During the winter months, please do not open windows because the drop in temperature will turn on the heater more than needed. If you are hot or cold, simply let me know and I can adjust the temperature for you. This will save expensive power bills and the environment. After all, no heating system is eco when cold air is blowing in and warm air is venting out!
- if unfamiliar with induction cooktops or coffee machines, please ask me how to use this equipment before trying to operate them.
Your booking is for one person only - no visitors unless agreed and definitely no overnight visitors.
Smoking permitted outside in the garden. Vaping inside is ok.
Quiet after 10.30 pm- this rule is for you, the guest. People and puppies will be out of the living area where the loft is located so you can get to sleep after 10.30 (or earlier as negotiated).
Please respect Iniki's training regime - no feeding, no jumping up and no hopping onto furniture allowed, even if she tries to convince you that this behaviour is OK ...... she can be a bit sneaky! Iniki will also want to greet you with a little too much enthusiasm. To train her to be relaxed around visitors, we ask you to COMPLETELY ignore her when you first arrive until she settles herself down. Once she has settled down, you can greet her back. She is a great cuddler!
World traveller with a sense of adventure and a love of art, kitsch and everything colourful. I split my leisure time between Melbourne and Lisbon and work to promote human rights in the world's conflict zones. When in Melbourne, I relax and raise seeing eye dog puppies.
