“Cute, modern, immaculate, convenient, everything you could possibly need!!”

My husband and I have just spent 6 nights at this apartment while in Melbourne and we were definitely not disappointed. The apartment is small but immaculate, modern and perfectly thought out, with quality fittings, an extremely comfortable bed with quality linen and every convenience you could possibly think of including a large flat screen TV and 2nd TV in the bedroom.. So much better than a hotel room as you could easily cook for yourself if you wished. Great fridge, washing machine and dryer and even a dishwasher. The kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils etc.The position is absolutely fantastic just a couple of minutes walk to Lygon St, with such a choice of restaurants and great atmosphere and one block the other direction to the tramstop near Melbourne University. So easy to get around. We thouroughly enoyed our stay and also felt very safe in secure locked gate block. Our only negative was the building renovations going on next door was quite noisy during the day but it looks like this is almost complete and definitely not the fault of the owners who I must say were lovely to deal with and even left a welcoming bottle of wine for our arrival.

“Superb space, finish and facilities in excellent location”

We were visiting Melbourne from the UK to see family and rediscover places we knew when we lived there over 25 years ago. The apartment was the perfect place to stay. It gave us our own space and independence to spread out it in and was, for us, one of the best locations in Melbourne. The excellent tram network was 2 minutes away and the City was within walking distance. The apartment was light, spacious, clean, well finished and equipped. The air con in the living space was superbly effective. The kitchen space and equipment were very good, although with so many restaurants and food markets just a walk away it was easy not to use it. Communication with the property managers was friendly and helpful and they came out immediately to fix a problem with the smoke alarm.

“Great location and flexible 'landlady'”

We picked this place to be near our daughter and were very pleased with our choice. First off, we changed our plans a few times due to flight changes and changes to our other commitments within Australia. Ruth and Danielle were extremely accommodating and made no fuss despite the several changes to arrival and departure dates. On our departure date we asked if we could leave our suitcases in the unit as our outbound departure from Melbourne was in the PM. Not only did they agree but also offered a later checkout time (without us asking) even though new guests were arriving the same day! How often do you get that kind of treatment? The unit itself, while compact, has everything you need, even a car park space and clothes washer/dryer. The Carlton Cardigan St. property is a block from the trams that take you to the core of the city with a 10 minute ride. One block in the other direction is Lygon St with all kinds of shops... green grocer, supermarket, many cafes and wine stores, several delis all within a two block strip. When we return to Melbourne we will definitely want to stay here again.

This little apartment is very cute and perfectly situated between Lygon St and the tramway. It had the tiniest (but perfectly functional) bathroom that I have see in Australia. I will certainly stay here again next time we are in Melbourne

“A beautifully appointed apartment in a bustling area”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 for a stay in March 2013

people found this review helpful

Position Perfect’s apartment at Carlton is light, spacious and beautifully and tastefully furnished, and I have stayed there a few times. It has all you need for a self-catering holiday – if, indeed you wish to cook for yourself - as it is located very close to the shops, cafes and restaurants of Melbourne’s Italian sector in Lygon Street.

If you need to shop for food, there are supermarkets and delicatessens within a very short walk.

The apartment is also a couple of minutes walk from the trams in Swanston Street which take you to Melbourne’s main shopping area and also on to Federation Square and Flinders Street Station.

Position Perfect’s Carlton apartment is set in the middle of a bustling and friendly student area close to Melbourne University, and is perfectly suited to anyone wishing to explore Melbourne and its surrounds.

I would also like to mention the landlords who are kindness itself. Nothing is too much trouble, and they are extremely nice and decent people, which always helps I feel.
