Enrobed in timber and brandishing steel, Zelda is your lady of the night's watch. Overlooking a famous old laneway you'll be immersed in a sea of Melbourne culture. Excellent cafes, restaurants and underground bars are all but a swords length away from your sanctuary of fun and excitement.
She's an amazing top floor, one bedroom designer apartment hidden inside a heritage building right in the heart of Melbourne's funky laneway district. With large beautiful balcony and rustic and eclectic furnishings - you will fall in love with Melbourne's city life! Perfect for a couple or single wanting a short relaxing stay. The balcony has unique shades of green glass panels that allow light and air through the apartment. There are two summer deck chairs on the balcony for relaxing and a collection of seasonal herbs growing!
The apartment is located on the quaint and eclectic McKillop Street which is the historic laneway at the start of Hardware Lane. Great for dining alfresco, you can catch jazz bands playing on the weekend in a variety of cool restaurants and bars dotted along this hip strip.
The apartment has a queen sized bed and a large king single daybed/couch (2.4m long) that can be used by a third guest. Please let us know if you would like this option and we'll have it ready for your arrival. Just make sure you specify in your booking comments that you would like to use two beds whether you are three guests or two travelling individually.
All of Melbourne's delights are right on your doorstep! Get a coffee from the Social Enterprise cafe 'Street' (nearby) or head north across Bourke Street and stroll up to the famous and eclectic 'Hardware lane' for a plethora of awesome cafes, restaurants and bars. Cross Elizabeth and Collins Street to reach Flinders Lane and the cafe hotspot 'Degraves street'! You could not get a better location for exploring Melbourne!
