“Home from Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We loved our stay on arrival from London and much prefer the location and atmosphere compared with other Melbourne serviced apartments we have used. Close to trams, restaurants and Botanical Gardens the spacious and quiet accommodation offered all we wanted apart from not enough coat hangers ( which were then provided.) Nothing is too much trouble for Warwick and he is a mine of information. Good parking also. Janet and Alan

What a perfect location for a pre Christmas getaway with everything Melbourne at your doorstep! Loved strolling down Toorak Road for something to eat and checking out the endless shopping on Chapel Street. A quick hike into the CBD to finish off the Christmas shopping, checking out the Myer windows and returning to our delightful fully self contained apartment for a home cooked meal, drinks on the sun-drenched balcony and a cozy night in, with an ensuite and a separate bathroom for the teenages! Complimentary parking was an added bonus and trams and trains are so close, that the car can stay in the garage for the duration of your stay. The beautiful tree-lined Caroline Street is a lovely welcome to this secure, safe and friendly accommodation. No hesitation for a return trip in the near future.

Room Tip: As I have stayed a couple of times, all rooms have been excellent and are very quiet and private.

The property is located in a quiet leafy suburb in South Yarra and really home away from home.

We had booked a 2 bedroom apartment but were upgraded to a 3 bedroom apartment; it was very spacious with a private outdoor patio and the 2 separate bathrooms were very welcome.

The secure underground car park is great for those with a car. Best of all is the property manager Warwick, who is super helpful and a true gentleman.

Will be back!

Great place to stay. We had a 3 bedroomed apartment, lots of space for us and our 2 teenage boys. Clean, comfortable, well furnished. Superb location. Highly recommend it. There are lots of good restaurants within a short walk from the apartments.

Stayed here whilst attending the Opera Australia 'Ring Cycle'. Marvellous position just off Toorak Road (trams, trains, Chapel Street, Prahan Markets, etc), easy access, good security. Comfortable, spacious, with excellent facilities (but dishwasher was a bit tired & King bed had an annoying joining ridge down the centre). Reasonable wi-fi access (free). Needs mugs (not cups) & more power points. Otherwise very comfortable & highly recommended. Manager was wonderfully welcoming & helpful. Would stay there again.

Spent 4 nights in this great location, close to the city centre (lovely walk along Yarra River) and all you want at your doorstep. Enjoyed stroll down Chapel Street with a wide selection of great shops, restaurants etc. If you like Fish & Chips go to Beluga, a stone's throw from the apartment, yum.

The apartment offers all a traveller want incl. kitchen, washing machine/dryer, balcony etc. So lovely to stay in on a day/evening you don't fancy going to town.

On top of that you have an extremely friendly and nice host who gives you plenty of information, recommendations etc. Thanks Warick for your brilliant hospitality, we fully enjoyed our days at the Caroline.

Hi Heidi and Ernst,

Thanks for your review! We're so glad you loved your stay at CSA South Yarra, and, of course, Beluga! They can really do fish and chips!

Our apartments are fully contained so you can relax on your holiday and have everything you need; that's great that we exceeded your expectations.

We hope to see you both again soon!

Had the pleasure of staying at this great property with 3 other mates for a weekend at the races. We were initially to stay in a 3 bedroom unit but this was not available and instead we were accommodated in 2 x 2 bedroom units at no extra expense. Warwick the manager had kindly called before we turned up to ensure we were comfortable with this change. The units are spacious, comfortable and have all the amenities of a quality serviced apartment. The location is excellent with the restaurants and shopping of Toorak Rd / Chapel St only a short walk away. Similarly trams and trains are situated only a short distance away. If there is a small improvement I would suggest adding Sky Racing to the channels available on Foxtel. As a group we have come to Melbourne for over 15 years for the races and have stayed at a number of properties in and around Melbourne. Without a doubt this is the equal if not the best apartments that we have stayed in and would have no hesitation in recommending this property.
