Jasper Cottage Carlton

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property


One of four Edwardian solid-brick terraces in a quiet street, Jasper Cottage has two bedrooms, one with queen-size bed, the other with a double bed. Both have built-in robes and good natural light.

Polished jarrah flooring is laid in the bedrooms, hall and bathroom, with slate in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. Lightwells give the bathroom/laundry and the dining areas a bright, open feel. Relaxing on the sofa and chairs in the sunny, north-facing space at the rear, you can gaze through the full-width windows onto the pretty brick courtyard with its gardens, exotic potted plants and fish pond.

A well-equipped kitchen is provided. Have breakfast in the sun at the wrought-iron setting in the courtyard; and after a hard day's enjoyment, vege out with TV, a DVD, the sound system - or flick through a poetry book!

Heating is by radiator panels in each room, with reverse-cycle airconditioning in the open-plan living/dining area.

Double brick and quiet neighbours mean you hear very little from either side, or from the local-traffic street outside.


You're perfectly located for enjoying all of inner-Melbourne's attractions - centrally placed to reach the city, or funky Brunswick St, or the fine old terraces of North Carlton and Fitzroy. Every way you walk, you'll find elegance and interest - and locals enjoying themselves.

Your cottage is in a one-way residential street, with beautiful old plane trees in the centre nature strip, and maples along each footpath. It's far enough away from through-traffic streets to be quiet, but near enough to eat at any of the good restaurants along Rathdowne St within a 2-minute walk - or pick up a great takeaway chinese at Fu Lu's!

A bus runs into the city every ten minutes, just round the corner in Rathdowne St. Or walk five minutes to Lygon St and catch a tram into the city, or out to Brunswick. Or rent a bike for a couple of dollars - nearest location is in Faraday St between Lygon and Swanston Sts.

PARKING: Visitors parking permits are available for limited street parking. For longer-term parking, GreenCo Parking has convenient and cheap ($7-17/day) 24-hour parking lots in Fitzroy and Carlton, both about 10 minutes walk from the cottage.


- Wander along the beautiful old streetscapes in Carlton, North Carlton, Fitzroy, Collingwood

- Lively Lygon St is a five minute walk, with Italian cafes, high-fashion shops and the classy Nova cinema

- Walk round the corner from the cottage to the right into Rathdowne St for fine restaurants and cafes, all the way up through North Carlton

- Or turn left and there's more fine French restaurants; keep walking for 15 minutes, past the beautiful Exhibition Gardens with Imax and museum, and you're at the city's edge

- Walk seven minutes to Brunswick St, and catch the weird, the wonderful, the wacky, tacky and lip-smacky that is the beehive of cafes, pubs and funky fashion in the streets of Collingwood and Fitzroy

- Take a bus or tram into the city. In ten minutes you can be shopping, visiting the national galleries, Federation Square, Southbank on the Yarra, or just exploring Melbourne's endless attractions!

Very comfortable and centrally located property

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at the Cottage and loved it. It is centrally located and so comfortable. It feels like a really cosy cottage. The owner Peter was really helpful and prompt with his reply with any query.

Awesome location and well supplied

  • 4 of 5

This part of Carlton is a great place for a Melbourne holiday, close to public transport and shops etc. The house has everything you need and is very comfortable / well-presented. Only negative is that the kitchen needed a bit of cleaning when we first arrived. Great time away.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We are an American couple on long term travel (including 3 months in Australia). We stayed in the cottage for 9 nights and really enjoyed it. The location is great: a short walk to Lygon Street or Brunswick Street. Also, it is a short walk to a large grocery store and to several tram and bus stops. We felt safe in the neighborhood. The cottage is comfortable and we found everything we needed, including plenty of pots, pans etc in the kitchen (we cooked a lot). The wifi download speed is a respectable 4Mbps in the kitchen and sitting area, and slightly faster in the main bedroom. The outdoor terrace area is lush with plants with a pleasant sitting area. The main bedroom faces the road and you can hear traffic from the nearby busy cross street. There is also the occasional party noise from a nearby pub. We decided to sleep in the second bedroom which is away from the road and we were comfortable there. I recommend this place without hesitation.

Owner's Response: Thanks Greg and Nina. I prefer the second bedroom myself, but my wife seems happy enough with the front bedroom. I'm glad you enjoyed it in general. Peter
