This stylish and contemporary 2-storey townhouse is in a quiet and picturesque street only 3 kilometres from the city of Melbourne and located in the bayside suburb of Albert Park.

Also within walking distance is the Formula 1 Grand Prix Track around Albert Park Lake.

This luxurious, furnished home is fully self-contained and serviced weekly for your convenience.

A private sunny courtyard beckons you to linger over afternoon drinks while you prepare a delicious BBQ dinner. The kitchen is fully equipped for self-catering and entertaining. Inside original Aboriginal artworks decorate the walls. An inviting feature of Sweeny Cottage is the two upstairs bedrooms each with a queen bed. The modern bathroom is adjacent to these 2 bedrooms.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Ray and Beth were keen to travel overseas with their children but didn’t want to stay in hotels or campervans so they rented cottages in the UK and Europe and owner vacation houses in America. Finding no similar self-contained accommodation back in their home town of Melbourne, they decided to put their experience and knowledge to good use and established Melbourne Boutique Cottages. After careful thought, they selected Cottages in two delightful inner suburbs of Melbourne. Elwood and Albert Park are considered safe, close to the city and have a wide choice of restaurants and shops close by. Beth used her knowledge from a Hospitality and Accommodation course and her work as an Occupational Therapist to equip the Cottages with quality and practical items. Ray’s background in the travel industry helped him to develop the booking system and establish the procedures that to this day maintain the Cottages at the highest standard. The result has been the creation of Melbourne Boutique Cottages which has received a consistent 4 1/2 star rating by AAA Tourism over 5 years and testimonials from hundreds of guests who have come to appreciate their home away from home. It is the attention to detail and the quality of the furnishings matched with the personal friendly greeting on arrival that separates Melbourne Boutique Cottages from the rest.
