Hope you are doing fine

Hello Brett, Hope you are doing fine. Just wanted to thank you for the awesome place you provided (and also for the bottle of wine). It was a pleasure staying there and we thoroughly enjoyed it. I would certainly recommend the place to any of my friends who needs an accommodation in Melbourne. Thanks again. Kindest regards, Bobby

Close to Box Hill Hospital

Highly recommend – at a time when we were desperate to get accommodation close to Box Hill hospital, these people came to our aid, and showed compassion and understanding, thankyou so much! I would definitely go there again.. close to bus, shops, restaurants, everything ! Thankyou ! Merlene Smith

Fantastic Location

“This is a fantastic city fringe location which is only a short walk to the main CBD tourist attractions and shopping precincts. The apartment is cosy, comfortable and excellent value for money. We had everything we needed and enjoyed our stay.”


Hey Team

Hey team, Just wanted to say thank you for a really good stay in your unit in Ringwood. It was perfect for what we needed for the two days we were there. Really pleased and will look to use you again when we’re back in the area. Thanks Karl
