Property type apartment


About the property

Central and quiet! The York Post Office Apartment is the perfect place for those looking for somewhere to switch off, close the door and forget about the world for awhile.

Located upstairs in the beautiful heritage-listed York Post Office building. Constructed in Toodyay stone in 1893 to the design of government architect, George Temple Poole, the building still houses one of Australia's oldest still functioning post offices on the ground floor.

Self Contained

You'll delight in the features of this beautifully appointed apartment that include a living room comfortably furnished with quality antique Australian furniture, slow combustion heater, ducted air conditioning, overhead fan, CD player (with MP3 input), and plenty of reading material to relax and unwind with. The living room overlooks the main street and opens onto a balcony where you can relax and enjoy a quiet drink.

The bedroom features a QS bed and wall mounted flat screen HD television. The bathroom is brand new and is the perfect place to luxuriate in the deep bath (big enough for two!).

The kitchen is small but well-equipped with crockery, utensils, saucepans etc and has been fitted with the quality European appliances.

Lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed the stay. Everything you needed was there. Location was unique and can be a little noisy during peak hour on the Main Street but that is part of the charm.

What a gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in this delightful apartment for two nights and couldn't fault it. Located in the main street of York the apartment has a comfy bed, lots of thoughtful extra's, a mountain of reading to suit any discerning reader and a great selection of CD's. We cooked dinner in the apartment our first night and although the kitchen is pint sized it contains everything you could possibly need to cook a full meal. The second night we ate at "Alice in the Palace" which is just across the street and that also was a treat. Sunday morning, from the balcony, we were able to watch cars arrive for the Ford Car Day. A lovely break away in perfect accommodation.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this apartment, above the old Post Office in the main street of York, it had lots of charm about it, was very comfortable, clean and private. Loved the enclosed front verandah overlooking the street and the separate lounge room.

York Post Office Apartment -charming and historic

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the post office apartment.Charming, historic, and well appointed. It was great to be in the actual town centre, reminiscent of staying in the middle of historic little villages in Europe. Jenny has gone to a lot of trouble to create a warm , homely atmosphere; lovely books, pretty china, and the fire set ready for use. The kitchen was very well appointed, despite being only a small space it was efficient and easy to use and a good amount of cooking and serving ware. York itself is a delightful well preserved historic town and worthy of at least a couple of days stay to fully explore the region.

Cosy couples retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a 2 night stay from 9th Aug '16. We were very impressed with the modern high end bathroom and kitchen fixtures, mixed with the eclectic and character filled bedroom and lounge. Loved the oversized soaking tub and made good use of log hire and bedroom heating as well as the great selection of games and books. Would definatley recommend.
