Perfectly positioned just off busy Brunswick St in Fitzroy, Melbourne's artistic & food heart, surrounded by some of the worlds best street art & cafes this studio apartment is light & spacious open plan within walking distance to city & so much more.

The space

Great location! This ground floor warehouse conversion studio apartment steps out into Melbourne's eclectic Fitzroy, in the middle of the street art district, which is very close to the city - just a 20- 30 min walk.

Lot's of lovely light and space. Suitable for doing work/business away from home or families or groups. It's casual and comfortable.
The space is a large open plan studio so no separate rooms but could sleep up to 10 people if all share beds.
1 x Queen bed - 2 people
1 x Double bed - 2 people
1 x double sofa bed (pull out with mattress) - 1-2 person or 2 kids
2 x click & fold down couches - 1-2 person or 2 kids on each = up to 4 people

It's perfect for couples, or a family of 2 - 6 adults & up to 4 kids or 3 singles/or variables of all of these combinations! Bedding is supplied for all 5 beds/sofa beds.
* please note - children are guests, even if they share your bed - please consider this when making your booking. Babies (up to 1 year) are the exception and I do not charge extra for them.
* Also note - I do not hold times - if you ask availability I will tell you if it's available at that time but anyone else can book those times so I recommend booking as soon as I have pre-approved you to avoid disappointment . I get many enquiries and it is too confusing to "hold" times. Also I have Instant book so if you have enough good reviews you can book it straight away as I keep my calendar up to date daily.

We spent only one night at this lovely place, but we had a great time here. The location is perfect - close to the city centre, in the heart of the happening Fitzroy region. There are wonderful bars and restaurants close by. The apartment's set-up was a bit unusual, but it was perfect, and Tarley was very kind and helpful. Would love to be back here again some time!

Fitzroy is a fantastic neighborhood and was a great place to base ourselves for visiting Melbourne. Their are dozens of quality restaurants within a short distance of Tarley's place that were easy an stroll in the evenings. We stayed in the Fitzroy every night, following our days sightseeing in the city. We really liked staying here. The flat is an old warehouse in the true sense of the word. The concrete floors are rough and ready, while the furniture is comfy. Tarley provides a huge amount of towels, sheets, and pillows so we could arrange everything to our liking. The kitchen was well equipped and while the bathroom is small it was more than adequate. Tarley was a very supportive host and I will hope to stay here again in the future.
