What do Aussie guests say?
"In comparison with high-end impersonal hotels, I was delighted with the care shown by Chris in taking me on a neighbourhood familiarisation tour, complete with introductions to people in the village. I followed Chris' suggestions in dining at Mikoshi (met the locals), Chinta Ria and indulged in Thai massage. Everyone and each experience was great! Comfortable bed. Quiet, safe haven! It truly felt like a home away from home. Thank you." - Sigrid Condon Kancoona, Victoria, Australia
"Thank you for the use of your lovely apartment. Very attractive appointments made our stay comfortable. All needs met. Cheers". - Garry & Carla Canberra
"We did enjoy our time at the Southbank apartment. Everything that we required was found easily in the apartment and the location was very convenient. Thank you for the information you gave us about the local shops, it turned out to be very helpful! It was also a bonus to have a swim in the pool." - Laura Potter Torquay, Victoria
What do overseas guests say?
"The apartment was really great. Also, thanks for showing us around Melbourne last Sunday as it helped with the orientation" - Sascha Niedinger and Jane Bailey (Just moved here from the UK. Guests who don't know the area can go on a cook's tour of the area, to set you straight and maximise your enjoyment whilst here.)
"Fabulous location, very peaceful... Initial tour very useful. Great bars and restaurants on your doorstep. Stay here, you'll love it" - Susan & Mark Gilroy Edinburgh, Scotland
"A most enjoyable stay. The apartment is perfectly located, clean, tidy and well-equipped. Our main reason we chose to stay here was location and quality." - Brian James Paraparaumu, New Zealand
Why stay with StayCentral? See what previous guests have said.
"It's central. It's an apartment. It's got all the facilities one needs - own washing, dryer, kitchen, lounge, two balconies, privacy etc. And if I wanted to step out of that comfort zone then there's the courtyard (nice design), heated pool, gym. If I wanted to move out of the security of the place ... then I've got Melbourne at my door step ... to meetings, shops, cafes, bars, beach etc. Then I can return to my own comfort zone and do my own thing. In a nutshell it's probably the closest one can get to being "home away from home". Compare that with a hotel room which is a pokey square and one eats, sleeps, works and whatnot in the same room ...then you've got to wait your turn at the laundry, eat what the hotel has on the menu, have a quiet drink in a bar that one may not particularly like, have people running around doing things like carrying my bag or parking my car which I can easily do myself, putting out the do not disturb sign if I wanted a sleep in etc. (i.e. extra overheads added to the bill)." - Dr Eddie Herman, Tasmania (Re St Kilda apartment)
"The (Brunswick) Vibe was a great surprise during a hectic work schedule. Comfortable with everything you need - well equipped kitchen with 6 of everything, spacious bedrooms, ample room to set up the mini office and not trip over each other! Tram stop to city right outside, restaurants and supermarket about 100 metres down the road, secure off street parking (for no extra charge). Surprised how quiet it was and how close to the city. Would definitely stay again." - Jennifer Dixon, Tasmania
