#1 The Blue Grainger
7-Bed 4-Bath House from USD640++ a night. Book it here.
The Blue Grainger will tick all of your boxes for a truly memorable stay, within walking distance to everything in Fitzroy. From glorious Edwardian fireplaces to deep-set windows, this home offers a stylish boutique vibe that you won’t forget. Its relaxed atmosphere creates a welcoming home away from home for your entire party. If you want to make the most of the fabulous Melbourne weather, the private patio area comes with a modern BBQ for al fresco cooking and dining.
#2 Grey Loft Villa
3-Bed 3-Bath Apartment from USD 372++ a night. Book it here.
Arguably the best feature of this apartment is the huge entertainment balcony that provides not only the perfect place to enjoy the sunset, eat a beautiful meal, or enjoy a few drinks, but also showcases spectacular views. We love how the living and dining area are filled with natural light, which pours in through the sliding doors, allowing you to bring the outside in. Plus, you won’t need to eat out all the time, thanks to the fully equipped kitchen, which is monochromatically sleek and simple.
#3 Little Peter
2-Bed 1-Bath Cottage from USD 220++ a night. Book it here.
This historical workers cottage, drenched in history, has had a snappy modern makeover. Clever design has opened it up to create a split-level home with multiple living spaces including a cosy lounge and a sunny outdoor courtyard. Peter Alexandar accommodates up to 4 people, and the light modern bathroom services both. Heading into Melbourne couldn’t be easier – only 1km from the CBD and the tram at your doorstep.
#4 River’s Edge
3-Bed 2-Bath House from USD 425++ a night. Book it here.
When your vacation home is within walking distance to the nightlife scene, you know it’s one to consider! Set in Richmond, along with many great shops and chic cafes, River’s Edge is the height of contemporary luxury; offering stylish and comfortable furnishings that are perfect for nomads who love everything sleek and modern. Best of all, the double doors open right to the fabulous outdoor swimming pool, a feature which might just take your breath away.
#5 The Art Abode
3-Bed 2-Bath House from USD 372++ a night. Book it here.
When you first step inside the property you’ll feel like you’ve just arrived at a luxurious boutique hotel, but one that you don’t have to share! We love the outside in design philosophy, with full height bi-fold doors that span two sides of the kitchen and dining areas leading out into the well-maintained garden with a peaceful sitting area that lets you take advantage of the sunshine and fresh air.
