“Great location, beautiful apartment, great owners!”
Reviewed April 9, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

The location is just perfect, just a 2 minute walk from the trams down into the City one way, and the other way into Lygon Street, the heart of Melbourne's Italian community with a fantastic array of cafes, coffee bars, shops and restaurants. The apartment is beautifully furnished and well equipped - everything you would need. The area is busy and very safe, and I have been a client of Position Perfect for a number of years now. I love the apartment, the area and the kindness of the owners for whom nothing is too much trouble.

“In the middle of 'Little Italy' yet nice and quiet.”
Reviewed October 22, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Great location, metres from good shops and fabulous eateries. Italian, vegetarian, cakes, gelato, burgers. Nova cinema for art house films, la Mama theatre for live shows, brilliant bookshop, cool crystal shop and wicked herb and spice shop for the foodies all only minutes away. Apartment was well set up for two people and really quiet considering how central it was. Trams and buses only a block away as was the University and Museum. 10 to15 minutes walk down to the free tram area of Melbourne City.

“Great location in Carlton”
Reviewed October 21, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Stayed at Position Perfect for 2 weeks while attending a training course at Melbourne Uni. The location is perfect with Lygon street one street over and the uni only a 5-10 minute walk away. The unit was clean, well presented and comfortable. There is a Woolworths right around the corner on Lygon street and plenty of coffee shops and restaurants. There is also a tram station just down the road so transport to the city is easy (it’s a 20 minute walk to the city)

“All you need in a great location”
Reviewed November 27, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This ground floor apartment is situated in a great location, very close to the shops, cafes and restaurants in Melbourne's Italian quarter - Lygon Street. It is beautifully furnished, with stylish accessories, is very clean and really has all you need for a relaxing trip to this part of Melbourne.

It is just two minutes walk to the trams in Swanston Street that will take you into the City (although walking into the City is easy, taking perhaps 20 mins), and there is so much to see and do in this great City. The landlords are brilliant, extremely kind and very helpful indeed.

Can't recommend it highly enough.

“Cozy spot for exploring Melbourne”
Reviewed August 13, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The apartment is small but clean and efficient. The location near the university and Lygon St. makes for a feeling of safety, as many people are out in the evening. Many restaurants and sights within walking distance, and the university tram stop is just one block over. We easily walked to Victoria Market, and then picked up the free tram to the central business district. A Woolworths market and BWS store are only a short walk away. Tight parking, but doable. We missed the info that wifi was extra - fortunately we had an Aussie cell phone to use (watch out for Citilink toll on way in from airport). Owners communicated by email and would have been readily accessible if there had been any issue, but none arose.

“Excellent location, cosy, well-stocked apartment”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

person found this review helpful

This is a fantastic apartment for 3 to 4 people. The place is compact, and it is so well stocked that you feel like at home. They left a bottle of complimentary wine, and a carton of milk in the fridge - such a thoughtful gesture, because who really likes those little creamers with coffee?
I would also like to commend the quick response of the owners- as we had a little problem with the water flow to the washing machine. They sorted it out pretty much in the same day. That's the kind of service that gets repeat customers.

The Carlton location is really posh; it has a lot of great food options just nearby (150 to 200 m distance), and just a few minutes by car or tram to the city center. Overall, I will highly recommend this place to my friends.

Tip- take an Uber instead of buying one of those MyKi cards for travel unless you are staying for a long period; tram within the city is free anyway and you don't have to waste 6 non-refundable dollars per card.

“Like the Name Says”
Reviewed February 8, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Position Perfect aptly describes this accommodation. Close enough to walk into the city and perfectly placed just around the corner from Lygon Street where great food beckons. Apartment had all you need and is very well presented.
Host has excellent and friendly communication and easily contacted if you have questions. Very happy with our stay.
