Set in magnificently manicured gardens, Le Jardin is a fully furnished apartment that features some of the most intricate and grand features of the 1870's Victorian era.
As you enter this grand Melbourne apartment, you will be delighted with the vast open-plan living and soaring 16 ft walls. In the main living area, you can relax in 2 comfortable suede sofas that are surrounded by unique antique pieces with gas heater for cosy evenings. There is a TV with Foxtel Platinum package (Cable TV) and CD/DVD player with MP3 compatibility. The antique timber dining setting seats 6 and is conveniently situated next to the kitchen which features Blanco stainless steel gas stove & oven with granite benches plus an all-in-one clothes washer/ dryer machine. Please note there is no dishwasher.
Through the double doors is the large master bedroom that has a queen size bed, marble fireplace (non active) with a huge mirror above, built in robes and a lovely antique desk (for those here on business). The bright, second bedroom has a double bed and more built in robes.
This apartment has huge picture widows looking out onto the manicured garden, elaborate decorative ceilings, lead lighting, honey coloured floorboards and Persian carpets with direct access to the sweeping, intricately tiled terrace. Very cool in summer naturally, due to high ceilings and thick walls.
The bathroom has a shower over a full sized bath, heated towel rail and hairdryer but please note there is only space within the apartment for a small hot water system which only services one shower at a time with a 15 minute wait in between to reheat. So whilst the apartment is spacious enough to accommodate up to four comfortably, please take this into consideration when selecting the accommodation that best suits your requirements.
Le Jardin is brilliantly nestled at the border of St Kilda and Elwood so you have the best of both worlds. On one side there's the elegance and peacefulness of Elwood's tree lined streets with the delightful Elwood Village shopping precinct, on the other side is buzzing St Kilda with its numerous funky cafes, bars, and shops, including two supermarkets. Luna Park is close by and the St Kilda yacht club and beach are just a block and a half away with superb restaurants overlooking the bay.
This stately apartment is located between Acland St in St Kilda and Broadway, Elwood. It is also ideal for executive travel and corporate short stay accommodation in Melbourne. Allocated off street parking is included at the rear.
Please note, well behaved children are welcome but we do highlight the beautiful full length cream curtains in the apartment and would appreciate that care is taken to keep them clean.

What an enjoyable stay! We felt so at home in our gorgeous apartment at Le Jardin. The location was to die for, the decor and antiques reminded us of our home. Everything was there for our needs. We hope we can stay there again and again when in Melbourne.
Truly gorgeous apartment in a quiet corner of St Kilda

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very spacious and beautifully appointed apartment, on the ground floor of one of St Kilda's grand mansion properties. Unfortunately the weather wasn't great during our stay so we spent many happy hours in this cozy space reading and watching TV. Everything was very comfortable and high quality and the kitchen is really very well equipped for a rental home. We would definitely consider staying again. The second bedroom was very useful for our young child to sleep in (although it is not very soundproof). Read more

Le Jardin is the best among all the apartment I ever stayed out from home. It gives me the "oh, so lovely. I'll absolute come again" when I step in. It has more than what the whole family needs. It's better equipped than my own home. I can't complaint for anything that I couldn't find from the apartment.
Location is best. Bus stop just outside the doorstep. St Kilda beach is just a block away. Acland St is too near to have all kind of food & shopping.
The caretaker is so sweet. I arrived on the night of winter. When I get in, the heater was turned on in advance with light on as well. I feel so touch with the little detail & feel so much like home.
A peaceful and luxurious sanctury yet close to all the best Melb

My family and I love staying at Le Jardin and return often. It is within a gracious historic building with huge rooms, high ceilings and stained glass,lovely gardens to look out on, and the famous St Kilda Botanic gardens a few steps away. So close to all the buzz and colour of the cafes and bars of St Kilda,yet in quiet leafy Elwood with instant access to public transport to connect with everywhere in Melbourne.
The apartment is furnished with interesting antiques, comfy sofas and heavenly beds and linen and the kitchen in well equipped for a cook up - but why bother when the best restaurants are so close. Boutique Stays provide a lovely welcome pack with delicious toiletries and kitchen essentials to get you going and their management and attention to detail is faultless

we arrived and found the apartment already warm with heaters on which was great as it was freezing and rainy out...the main bedroom is huge and the apartment is decorated in a warm and homely manner. the kids shared the double bed, beds were all comfortable, lovely linen and good pillows...hotel comforts with the bonus of feeling like home. my only complaint with 3 kids is a dishwasher would come in handy!! ( i realise space is a limitation here and a washing machine instead!) overall i would stay there again and highly recommend for couple or family stays.

Easy short walk to restaurants, bars, transport and the beach. Quiet neighborhood. Apartment is ideal, spacious, comfortable and has all the amenities along with a good assortment of appliances, plates, flatware and glasses. Wireless too. Beds are comfortable with good quakity linens Only improvement would be a lounge or chairs for the veranda/patio area.
