The space
Apartment specifics: We built this unit above our garage as a refuge for ourselves during a major renovation of the main house. We installed all we needed to get by. As such everything is here, double glazing, blinds, small kitchen (no oven), dishwasher, portable hot plate, bathroom, air cond, flat screen - albeit on a compact scale.
The kitchen has a base range of plates, cutlery, glasses, pots and pans, as well as a fridge, dishwasher, microwave, kettle and toaster.
A hair-dryer, an iron and small ironing board are strategically placed through the unit.
The queen bed retracts to vertical to add more space, or can be left down if a degree of tightness doesn't worry you.
The unit overlooks the street mostly, with glimpses of the back yard with its 50 year old magnolia tree. Our two terriers patrol the space, but as senior citizens, spend most of their days sleeping inside the main house.
The unit is all internal space, as there is no outside balcony or courtyard.
We would appreciate it if you could stick to our no smoking indoor rule.
Accept for assistance animals, we do not take bookings with pet stay requests

Where you’ll be

Fitzroy, Victoria, Australia

The Fitzroy area is immediately next door to the CBD. For years it was an undesirable slum, until people realised it was close to the city and actually a pretty good place to visit, live in, or just hang out.
Astonishingly, unlike St Kilda, as an example, the suburb missed the early 90's retail space boom and as a result the place remains littered with small shop-fronts. Many sell left of centre offerings and it is worth a wander.
There are many, many coffee shops, typical of inner city Melboure!
The numerous and varied restaurants tend to be on the smaller scale, but can become utterly overrun depending on what the social media flavor of the month is. If the one you wanted is packed, walk next door.
Friday and Saturday nights in Fitzroy see the streets crowded but generally safe.

Easy going (everyone will say that), early 50s, Long term relationship, gay, lived in Fitzroy for 7+ years. Second best suburb in Melbourne. Have lived in Sydney and enjoyed it, but Melbourne is slower paced and somewhat more focused: Food, footy, shopping and coffee. As a city, Melbourne is an easy place to get around, everything is flat and basically square. Trams are are relatively simple and rarely venture off their tracks.
