What some of our delighted guests have been saying!

Tara Inn

A very cozy house to stay at.  We were really pleased with all the pre-recorded movies as well as Foxtel at this property.  We had an absolute ball!!  The South Melbourne beach was lovely too.  An ideal place to "de-stress".  Cheers

We loved staying at this cottage.  Everything was supplied.  It was in quiet location with easy access to trams.  The bikes were fantastic with great bike trails along the beach front.  Thank you.  We will remember this place and hope to be back soon.
We stayed at Tara Inn while our house was undergoing renovations for a few months.  It was such a beautiful cottage to stay in. We loved the area and all that it had to offer!!  Thank you for such a hassle free stay.  Cheers
Just a perfect home away from home. Thank you for a brilliant weekend in Albert Park. Thank you for thinking of everything to make our stay comfortable.

Do Drop Inn

We were very impressed with this cottage.  We had friends who were getting married in Albert Park.  It was very relaxing and comfortable.  We loved the closed proximity of all the lovely cafes as well as the beach.  Very friendly and welcoming.  Thank you for such an enjoyable stay.
We come back every year to stay at Do Drop Inn for the MSAC competitions.  This cottage is very stylish and relaxed and only a 5 minute walk to MSAC and the tram into the City.  It's in such a great location and we appreciate that Dave and Melissa always fit ...

Emerald Inn

We had a great time staying at your cottage.  Thanks for letting us bring our little pooch who also enjoyed the walks along the beach and around the Albert Park area.  Pet friendly properties - we love them!!  Thanks again.
Steph and Ron Ross
Cozy and comfortable and perferctly placed to enjoy untold attractions that Melbourne has to offer.  We settled in instantly and could stay forever.  I know that a lot of people have said this but it's true.  It's a home away from home!!
Paul and Abigail McKenzie W.A.
Ideal place to Stay – very comfortable, brilliant location and we’ve been able to entertain the "new" parents after the birth of my first grandchild on 8th October – we even backed the winner of the Derby and 2nd in the Melbourne Cup so we'll be back!
Many thanks. A great place in a really lovely area, short walk to Bridport St and all the cafes, restaurants and shops. Sorry Dave that you didn’t quite convince us to emigrate – may be next time!

Thank you for making Ruby Inn so cozy and welcoming. All the goodies and special treats were a lovely surprise. Loved the fresh fruit and roses. Albert Park has been a great place to stay, haven’t used the car since we arrived.

Well, we booked the Ruby Inn online, not knowing one area from the next. We arrived in the dark, to a warm, cozy, cute little apartment, with all the creature comforts one would need and more. When we stepped out in the morning we were more than pleasantly surprised as ...

Excellent location for visiting Melbourne, everything within easy reach and the house is very comfortable. Trams to the City and St Kilda pass regularly and shops in the Victoria Avenue area are a bonus. Much appreciated Australian way of life and hospitality – not one unfriendly person!

Harold Inn

We had a great weekend staying at this property.  We were here for the football and were pleasantly surprised at how closed the MCG was from the apartment.  Public transport was within walking distance so we could enjoy our weekend without a car.  A warm and comfortable place to stay.  ...

This has been a great place to stay in. It is outstanding accommodation in a prime location with everything provided that we could possibly think of. We enjoyed our coffee and cake and welcoming bunch of roses. Thank you so much.
