Great ground floor apartment at the end of cul de sac of Rockley rd. Steps are 50m from property to the river bank and a couple of cafes. The large woolworths and all the cafes restaurants are 20 min walk and trams at the other end of Rockley rd 7 mins walk, the MCG and other stadiums are about 30-40 mins walk along the Yarra river. The apartment is clean tidy has a large comfy bed, all amenities you could wish for in an airbnb, Jennifer was always helpful and friendly and I recommend this property to all.

Visiting in the middle of winter we found this apartment very dark during the day - it gets no sun in lounge and kitchen. It is also very cold - it has a heater in the lounge but found the heat didn't flow through the space very well, making the bedroom freezing and there was no seperate heater available for the bedroom. With a 1 year old who is on the move, we found that this place was not very kid friendly - no heater guard, which made life pretty difficult as the grate heated up substantially when on and there was no kitchen door or barrier to keep him out of the kitchen. Light from outside cannot be turned off shines straight into the corridor and lounge at night which is annoying. Shower leaked every time we had a shower which meant a lot of wet towels. Host was rude, unprofessional and petty after our stay. Bullied and threatened over money for travel card, which we were more than happy to pay on the provision that a transaction breakdown was provided due to a disagreement on how much we owed her. Transaction breakdowns are easily attainable online but she refused to provide this and took matters further to AirBnB. A headache we could have done without.

Response from Jennifer:
When Sarah and her partner left the apartment they were very happy and told me how much they had enjoyed their stay and loved the apartment. After they left I messaged asking where they might have left the cash for their Myki usage ( which other guests do) and where they might have put a couple of missing items. I did ask if they would like to pay me direct or have the funds deducted from their bond, Sara said to take it from the bond. So it was her choice to go through AirBNB. As I can't send documents through this system I sent them to AirBNB. In no way was this guest bullied or threatened - quite the opposite in fact Sarah told me that if I pursued the money she owed me she would give a bad review. I have had many wonderful guests and great reviews, it is such a pity that people like Sara spoil things for others in being dishonest. The apartment is a little dark inside in the middle of a cold and dark Melbourne winter- remember it is a 1940's Art Deco apartment. The rest of her comments are either not true or petty. I don't think I have had any other children in this my first winter as the apartment is ideal for singles or couples, but I will take on board a fire screen . No other guests have said th shower leaks (can't see how it could) but will investigate

Great location near restuarants and shops and easy access to the CBD by tram or train ride or a 15 minute walk along the Yarra river.

Jenny's place is one of the most beautiful I have stayed in with carefully selected furniture, art work, interior design and kitchen. I believe she has gone out of her way to make the place feel like home I will definitely recommend this place to anyone with small family as well as couples.

This central spot is great for reaching the city and enjoying the hip South Yarra vibe. It is well equipped and comfortable with great homely touches. It lives up to the photographs and Jennifer, the host, took care of us.

I am a long time Melbourne resident and businesswoman though still with a love of Perth in Western Australia where I was born and still visit regularly to see my cousins and take my Mum to see her brother. I am blessed with a great love of people and our planet and can never see…
