                  The Area

                  Southbank is one of the most prestigious inner city areas of Melbourne with a mixture of high end offices and residential complexes. Melbourne's style and pizazz never stops at this riverside area of the city's favorite art and leisure destination. You will find people walking, eating, drinking, shopping, working or just watching at Southbank--but everyone is doing it with style. Fashionistas wander along the shady promenade past water walls, fountains and riverside cafes.

                  Tourist Attractions

                  Southbank buzzes with the 24-hour Casino complex; 350 gambling tables, 2,500 pokies machines, the Palladium ballroom, shops, restaurants, a 14-theatre cinema and space for over 8,000 parked cars. The spectacular 2,000 seat Lyric Theater has excellent acoustics for live performances of opera, ballet and theater. The Yarra Riverside walk is lined with interesting shops, and cosmopolitan cafes and restaurants overlooking modern fountains and Melbourne CBD. Adjacent is the Melbourne Convention Center, with the Polly Woodside sailing shop and maritime museum along the South Wharf. All the fabulous attractions of Melbourne are on the doorstep of Southbank, or a hop and a skip away.

                  At night fire-breathing dragons come out to play and fairy lights sparkle. The incorporated Southgate complex of 20 restaurants, cafes and bars, and 40 retailers, is a journey into luxury and opulence, where style reigns supreme.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: I am a Melbourne girl with a finance professional background. I travel overseas during majority of the yea and I have a wonderful housekeeper who helps me with all my rental properties in Melbourne. Due to passion for traveling, meeting new people and property, I have, over the last few years, managed to combine my hobbies into owning a guesthouse and a number of apartments in and near the Melbourne city. I hope I can cater all types of groups with the range of accommodation options I offer. I also love the opportunity to show all my guests what a wonderful city Melbourne is. Our family also have a holiday apartment in Shanghai China and I hope to provide some insights for guests there as it can be a difficult country to navigate for independent travelers.

                  Why the Owner Chose Melbourne:
                  Central group accommodation at a fraction of hotel prices! Deal direct with owner and save on accommodation cost! Insider knowledge of what Melbourne has to offer!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Large properties in the city center are very rare especially when your group will have exclusive use to all facilities
