My wife and I spent 10 days in this apartment and it was great. The location across from Southern Cross station is fantastic if travelling by bus,train or plane. We arrived at 11pm from the airport and Daniel arranged a pickup point in the bus station and it worked perfectly. Apartment was clean and well equipped. We would highly recommend this unit. Etihad stadium across the street if you want to take in a footy game, we did it was fun. Traveller from Canada
Daniel was a super host and gave us a great overview of the apartment. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
We met Daniel and learned everything we needed to know, the condo was spotless We walked to great restaurants nearby and we walked or used mass transit to get where we needed, no car necessary. No dryer, but everything else was really great five stars.
Found this stay overall enjoyable . There was a hiccup when we arrived at airport. I contacted Daniel re where to get keys and he said "did you not download travel pack I sent ?" . I had downloaded something he sent with rules of apartment. After explaining this and my being older and not completely computer savvy he sent on my phone to download . That was useless due to my phone data. After all toing and froing he sent details needed. I did not find travel mob very user friendly at all.
The apartment is great . Across road from where bus gets in . Walk everywhere or free trams in city pass front. Views of a night beautiful. Everything in unit good clean etc . The lift can be time consuming at peak hour (a lot of coming and going )
All in all value for money and Daniel when we met him most helpful.
You would do not much better value for money wise in the city.
Ideal location - immaculate apartment that has everything you might possibly need during your stay. We enjoyed the place, more than the experience, though.
Unfortunately, the cleaner threw out our entire bag of well-marked prescription medications, which we left behind in our rush to get to the airport for our early morning flight. We notified Daniel as soon as we discovered what had happened, and he immediately got in touch with his cleaner and tried to rectify the situation.
There was NO possible way that the clear plastic bag of pill bottles could have been misconstrued as "rubbish". The cleaner made a huge mistake in not consulting with the property manager of the property, before discarding them - thus putting the manager in an awkward situation and my husband's life at great risk (his heart medication needs to be taken daily).
Adding insult to injury, we were told that it was completely our fault - we disagree. We made a mistake in leaving it behind; however, the cleaner chose to compound our error by his/her irresponsible action. The apology did not suffice. No monetary compensation, to replace these drugs, was offered. The situation was not handled professionally, responsibly, or respectfully. Only stay here, if you have nothing to lose.
We will likely not use travelmob or HomeAway in the future - we definitely will explore other options, when we travel and want to stay in apartments, rather than hotels, in cities.
Nice apartment, in a good location with great views.
Daniel was thorough and great to communicate details with.
Thanks heaps for the stay.
