Ticks all the boxes!

  • 5 of 5

We visit Melbourne regularly and have never stayed here before. We absolutely loved it. The terrace was just beautiful and had such a warmth about it! We had 8 guests stay and it was very comfortable and roomy. The location is fantastic (5 mins walk to Clarendon St) yet a quiet street. Brenda was fantastic and helped with places to eat, salons for hair, etc, etc. I would highly recommend this property.

Large grand terrace house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Grand South Melbourne Terrace. It is a large home with 5 bedrooms, a backyard and off-street parking, so it was a perfect size for our family gathering. The house is a very grand old terrace with modern features and our stay was very comfortable and relaxing. The tram stop is directly across the road and we found it very easy to get around the city, either by walking or tram. We highly recommend the property and would stay there again.

Fabulous property

  • 5 of 5

8 of us stayed in Brenda's wonderful home for our annual Girl's Weekend! The house was big and comfortable and in a perfect location - a short walk to the South Melbourne Market, trams and even walking distance to Albert Park. Would definitely stay again!

Disappointing

  • 2 of 5

The house itself was charming. However the furnishings and presentation was not as depicted in the website photos. We were very disappointed.

Owner's Response: Any future guests should note the 3 others reviews record 5 star rating Elegant lady 5 star, Truly Amazing 5 star, Excellent 5 star Comments include excellent facilities. I can only say that the house was presented the same for all 4 situations There is a saying "You cannot please everyone" I think this appears to be the case here.

Truly amazing

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property. So well presented and located close to Melbourne CBD and highlights of South Melbourne area eg. the market, restaurants, beaches and the like. We made it our extended weekend home for 3 generations attending a family wedding, 4 couples and a single all with our own bedrooms - quite extraordinary. Excellent facilities with in-house and al fresco entertaining and dining areas and off street parking for our vehicles. Our thanks to our host Brenda for the privilege of staying there - you could not wish for more.
