If your preferred property is not available for all of your dates, and you are agreeable, we can often accommodate you by dividing your stay between two homes or finding another suitable property for you from our portfolio.

We love families and will happily accept bookings for children at our homes.

Alternatively, contact our helpful reservations team with your requirements and we can discuss the specifics of our properties with you to make it easier for you to select the perfect property for your stay.

As our properties do not have physical receptions on site, we are not able to store luggage for you at the property prior to your check in time or after you check out. If you arrive early and we have been unable to provide you with an early check in, there are luggage storage lockers at Southern Cross Station in downtown Melbourne. If you have a really early flight in or a late flight out, it may be worth considering booking an extra night before or after your stay so you have full use of the home after early arrival or until late departure.
