Guestbook comments from the manager
Just a quick note to thank you for your assistance with my stay over the last week or so. What a brilliantly located apartment, so handy and well equipped - for about the first time in 20years I'll return home without the need to do a load of laundry!

I started Gem Apartments with one fantastic apartment in 2009. We have since grown to manage a network of 25 apartments around Southbank.

Gem Apartments successfully straddles the traditional serviced apartment market / and individual holiday market by keeping strict control over all of our apartments.

Our apartments are all furnished and fitted out by Gem Apartments to the same standard, and have the same inclusions.

I work full time in the business out of an office on Whiteman Street, and am available for our guests each day.

I oversee each apartment on a daily basis to ensure that each apartment is kept to the standard of Gem Apartments. Value Executive Accommodation with all the touches of home.

Our business is structured to offer our guests all the benefits of individually owned and operated holiday apartments, but with the staff and professionalism behind it to offer our guests peace of mind if something does go wrong.

Gem Apartments purchased this apartment in 2010

The location is in the very center of Southbank and right on the Yarra River. It is the perfect blend of convenience for self catering (there is a supermarket onsite), and dining out. Every cuisine, and of each class is available within a few minutes walk.

Unlike many apartments in Freshwater Place, our apartments have a balcony and opening windows. Freshwater Place has amazing facilities: a beautiful swimming pool overlooking a tenth floor garden and the city, spa, sauna, steam room and large gym.

SO CLOSE TO EVERYTHING IN MELBOURNE WITH GREAT VIEWS, COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT

  • 5 of 5
Myself and two friends stayed here in the Gem Apartments for a great mini-break holiday in Melbourne. It is very centrally located - from here we could walk, tram, taxi or train it to just about anywhere we wanted to go. For example, the CBD is only 5-10mins walk across the footbridge and under the railway tunnel. There is a supermarket directly downstairs as part of the apartment complex, a great lap pool (which we used every day), places to buy a quick (and good) coffee, a well equipped kitchen which we mainly used for preparing breakfasts but you could easily cook a meal. And the views are spectacular! We particularly enjoyed watching the day fade and the lights come up over the river and the CBD. The apartment has lots of room, good bathrooms and very comfy beds. Kellie, the manager, was terrific to deal with - answered all our emails promptly and was most helpful.

Southbank stretches along the Yarra River from Melbourne Exhibition Centre (near Crown Casino) through to Princes Bridge / St Kilda Rd. With the cbd on the opposite bank, and offering a multitude of dining and entertaining options, Southbank is well deserving of its reputation as Melbourne's premier entertainment district.

Entertainment within the defined Southbank area includes the Arts Centre, encompassing the State Theatre, Playbox theatre and George Fairfax Studio, as well as the Hamer Hall (formerly Melbourne Concert Hall). Southgate is another focal point in Southbank and offers upmarket retail stores and dining, as well as a large food court. Markets are held on the Yarra River at this location each Sunday.

Crown Casino is a short stroll past the street entertainers (weekends and public holidays) and numerous restaurants, and offers 40 restaurants catering for every taste and budget, as well as high end shopping, gambling, movie theatre and ten pin bowling.
