A romantic art deco tree top apartment minutes from a trendy cafe and restaurant strip has an art house feel of spaciousness and light. So gorgeous film crews have hired it for films, photographic sessions and art house films.

Barbara is very responsive with communication and her apartment is a classic art-deco apartment with a lot of charm. We loved it! The location is great, there are lots of great places to eat etc nearby and it is close to the train and trams. There was a mix-up with the cleaner bu…
Wouldnt reccommend it. Majority of windows wouldnt open, the bed in the second bedroom was atrocious. The owner got my dates wrong and sent us to the wrong apartment. Also it hadnt been cleaned though that was rectified as she managed to get someone to come and clean whilst we s…
Response from Barbara:
I have nothing to say about this review other than it's mostly true. It's a shame Isla couldn't have appreciated the charm of the place, which other guests and I, who am sitting in the apt right now as I write, have the pleasure to enjoy. Not a word about the expensive art, Venice cushions, Paris fabric, dazzling mirrors, quality furniture - an apartment I have enquiries from film makers at least once a year to use as a location shooting. Sadly, from this guest, only complaints about a couple of windows sashes being broken and a bed that has a down mattress topper that cost more than most mattresses and other guests have described as sleeping on a cloud. You can't please everybody with firmness of mattresses, but you can supply high quality. When I charged a proper rent for an apartment of this quality, $200-$250/night, nobody ever disrespected my places and I had fantastic cleaners. Now everybody is renting their spare rooms or going home to stay with mum and renting out their flats, prices have dropped to more than half and the type of guests these prices attract sometimes steal, trash (twice this year) and complain far more than those paying twice the rate. I'm sorry for Isla that the check in was very unfortunate and I gave her the address to the wrong apartment. I will be putting my three airbnbs (2 St Kilda one Paris) on the full-time rental market as of January 2018 because what used to be a pleasure for me in renting beautiful places, is no longer.
Hi, I'm Barbara. Thanks for your interest in my apartments. I have three on this site. I operate one Paris and two Melbourne, Australia short stay designer apartments which are specifically set up for short stays. The Paris apt is located centrally and overlooks a park. The Melbo…
